Koepka, who has gained momentum by winning this tournament, is also aiming for the Masters, the first major tournament of the season, which opens in Augusta, Georgia, on the 6th. Koepka, who won the US Open in 2017 and 2018 and the PGA Championship in 2018 and 2019, is the best runner-up in the Masters in 2019. Koepka is literally a ‘major hunter’ and ‘major tazza’ who won 4 out of 8 victories on the PGA Tour in major tournaments.
This year’s Masters will be the first match between LIV players and PGA Tour players, who held their first tournament in June last year. As for the overall major tournaments, last year’s US Open and The Open held a clash between PGA Tour and LIV players, and PGA Tour players won the championship.
Meanwhile, Woods showed up at the Augusta National Golf Club, where the Masters was held, and announced the approach of the tournament. On that day, Woods, who entered the practice range with his caddy Joe La Cava and his friend Rob McNamara, was caught limping while walking. Woods checked wedges, short irons, fairway woods and drivers in turn.
