Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson were caught up in the crowd as the two walked up to the 18th green to finish off one of golf’s most historic moments: Mickelson winning a sixth major at the age of 50.

It will be remembered as one of the game’s most iconic moments and the video will be repeated for years to come in highlight reels, TV ads, and more.

Yet. Koepka was not happy, and came off as a poor sport. And weirdly claimed that no one “really gave a sh_t” about his knee as if the raucous fans remembered his knee was injured as they swarmed the fairway.

“Yeah it would have been cool if I didn’t have a knee injury and got dinged a few times in the knee in that crowd because no one really gave a s–t, personally,” said Koepka with a pissy tone.

“But if I was fine, yeah, it would have been cool.

“Yeah, it’s cool for Phil. But getting dinged a few times isn’t exactly my idea of fun.”

He continued, “Like I don’t mind waiting or being in that crowd but getting my — I don’t know, it felt like somebody tried to, I don’t know what the deal was, but it’s what it is.

“Be putting it in ice today. It feels like s— right now.”
