Brooks Koepka’s Contemporaries Will Be Rooting Hard For Phil Mickelson

You just know that Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, et al are rooting for Phil Mickelson to take down Brooks Koepka.

Because if Koepka wins his fifth major at the 103rd PGA Championship – his fifth since 2017, he will put his contemporaries to shame, and lock up the best of his generation.

In a romp.

And makes all the others look much less historical.

Sure, Rory won four but not against the best of his generation (JT, Koepka, Spieth, DeChambeau, etc). Spieth won three but before Koepka, DeChambeau, and JT were who they are today.

Kopepka meanwhile could win five against his generation’s best when they were in peak form (DJ-No. 1, JT-No. 2, Rory-MVP 2019, Bryson-No. 5, etc).

In fact, with a win today, Koepka will have won more majors (5) over the past four-plus seasons than Dustin Johnson (1), Justin Thomas (1), Jordan Spieth (1), Bryson DeChambeau (1) and Roy McIlroy (0) COMBINED.

That’s Tiger and Jack-level type domination.
