, I’m favourite for this year’s Masters but tried to punch through my Mercedes window TWICE last year after missing cut

MASTERS favourite Brooks Koepka tried to punch through the window of his Mercedes twice after missing the cut last year.

The American leads with a score of 12-under par with play suspended last night due to a storm.

Koepka has struggled in Augusta, missing the cut in both 2021 and in 2022.

The four-time major winner has had to battle his way past injury issues and frustration boiled over last year.

Koepka revealed: “I don’t even know if I should be saying this, but pretty sure I tried to break the back window of the car with my fist.

“I tried to put it through the back window, not once but twice. First time didn’t go, so figured try it again.

“The window did not break. Apparently (I’m) not strong enough.

“The ride home was pretty silent. But yeah, I guess Mercedes makes a pretty good back window.”

Opening up on his knee troubles, Koepka said: “In 2021 I was just trying to figure out the best areas to walk because this place is quite hilly.

“Downhill was a killer because my knee would get in front of my heel and that’s where the MPFL (medial patellofemoral ligament rupture) that’s stitched is still in there.

“It would just tighten, and everything was quite painful.

“But I don’t have to worry about that any more, which has been great.

“I feel really good. I like the way I’m swinging the golf club, putting it, chipping it, driving it, iron play is solid. It feels really similar.

“I’ve got a completely different knee, but swing-wise it still feels the same. I’m able to do everything I need to and the confidence is there.

“The confidence was lost just because of my knee and that was it.”

Koepka leads Sam Bennett (-8) and Jon Rahm (-9) at the top of the leaderboard.

Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy (+5) is in danger of not making the cut.

Yesterday, trees fell as a result of a huge thunderstorm amid fears the event could have to be extended for five days to catch up on play.

Golfing is bad for you?

Golf is good for you. It’s actually very healthy. Studies show that golfers live longer and are healthier than non-golfers. Golfers also have a tendency to be happier because they are less stressed.

Is there a way to make money golfing?

Absolutely! Professional golfers have many income streams. You can teach, sell merchandise, organize tournaments, and even be a celebrity.

How can I reduce my golf score by five strokes

Your swing mechanics must be improved. Even though you know how to hold the golf club properly, if you aren’t feeling comfortable swinging it correctly, you won’t get the correct feedback from your body. After mastering this step, you can work on your flexibility and strength. You can start slowly, gradually increasing your distances. As you get better scores, your game will become consistent.

What is the average score for a weekend player?

An average score of a beginner golfer is about 100. As you get better at golf, your scores improve. You will likely start playing 9 holes, and then work your way up to 18.

Can I improve my golf game without practicing?

Practice is key to improving your game. Even if your time and resources are limited, you can still improve. Keep in mind that you should always strive to practice what you have set out to do. Playing faster is the best way to improve your game. If you wish to hit your shot farther, you need to focus on striking the target farther.

How To

Five Easy Steps to Lower Golf Scores

  1. Start by getting the right equipment. You will need to purchase quality clubs and balls. To find the right club for you, it is best to learn from someone who plays golf. If you don’t know anyone who plays golf, ask around at your local driving range. You might get a lesson for free, or they may even offer you a free one!
  2. Practice makes perfect. This goes without saying, but if you really want to improve your game, you’ll need to practice. It doesn’t matter whether you’re playing alone or with friends; practicing is essential. You should also keep track of how you progress once you start practicing. Note everything that you do in order to track your progress.
  3. Play more. When you first get started, it’s probably going to feel like you’re spending too much money on golfing gear, so you won’t go out nearly enough. But once you get into a groove, you’ll realize that you actually enjoy it quite a bit. You can increase your play frequency. Try to play at least three rounds per week. It means you will play two rounds of 18 holes each weekend, and one round of 9 holes every week.
  4. Be sure to eat right. Many people think that they are doing their body a favor by not eating breakfast or having lunch after work. This isn’t good for your health. Try to eat something before leaving the house. In order to be healthy, you should have small snacks with protein, carbohydrates and fat. A light meal containing lean proteins and vegetables can be prepared when you arrive at your course.
  5. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids. Drinking lots of fluids helps prevent dehydration, which can lead to headaches and muscle aches. Drinking water is important for optimal performance.
