Does Brooks Koepka have ‘Buyer’s Remorse’ over joining LIV Golf?

Well-connected journalist and author Alan Shipnuck believes Brooks Koepka is experiencing ‘buyer’s remorse’ after joining LIV Golf.

Amidst the huge prize money increases currently seen on the PGA Tour, Shipnuck says the American “must feel on the outside looking in.”

The four-time Major winner and former World No.1 revealed on Netflix’s Full Swing docuseries that the WM Phoenix Open is his favorite event, but he missed it last week on his way to missing the cut on the Asian Tour in Oman.

Phoenix Open was one of many PGA Tour events this year that have seen their purse rise to $20m and the first place check increase to $3.6m, including this week’s Genesis Invitational, as the Tour continues to open its purse strings to combat LIV.

According to Alan Shipnuck, who answers questions from golf fans in his Ask Alan article(opens in new tab), Brooks Koepka is suffering from buyer’s remorse.

The guy has one of the biggest egos in golf, and the PGA Tour creates ever-increasing buzz with its elevated events and even the state-sponsored TGL, so he must feel like he’s on the outside looking in.” While it’s unclear if that’s true or not, the son of LIV CEO Greg Norman, Greg Norman Jr., quickly dismissed the claim on Twitter, simply saying: “No. Bs.”

Following the US Open last year, Koepka signed with LIV for an estimated $100 million fee. He joins his brother Chase in the Saudi-backed series and captains the Smash GC team, which will consist of his brother Chase, Jason Kokrak and Matthew Wolff for the 2023 LIV Golf League, which starts next week.

Currently ranked 78th in the world, he will not play in this year’s Ryder Cup as he is suspended from the PGA Tour. He has exemptions to the Masters and Open Championships through 2024, as well as to the PGA Championship and US Open through 2028.
