His comments about fellow PGA Tour star Rory McIlroy should only make him even more of a lightning rod/fan favorite because this man clearly doesn't care at all about saying what he feels.

Koepka, the No. 1 player in the world right now, had this to say when asked about a rivalry with McIlroy, who stunningly edged out Koepka to win the 2019 Player of the Year award and is currently the No. 2 player in the world:

"I've been out here for, what, five years. Rory hasn't won a major since I've been on the PGA Tour. So I just don't view it as a rivalry," Koepka told AFP ahead of his defence of the CJ Cup in Jeju, South Korea which begins on Thursday.

"I'm not looking at anybody behind me," said Koepka.

"I'm number one in the world. I've got open road in front of me I'm not looking in the rearview mirror, so I don't see it as a rivalry."

Now that, as the cool kids on Twitter say, is the type of content I need directly in my veins.

Koepka is right about that major championship claim, as McIlroy hasn't won one since the 2014 PGA Championship, which was his fourth major championship. Koepka also has four majors, including last year's PGA Championship. He also finished in the top four in all the majors last year. So yeah, he's a beast when it matters most.

20 Years today since Payne Stewart was killed in an Air crash.

Alongside Tiger one of the very best players in the world at the time of his passing

Really good piece on the BBC Sport website

vaguely remember it but of course back then wouldn't have got the coverage the modern world provides

He was at his peak too. He was so flamboyant, was ahead of his time in the golfing world. He would have been in his element in the modern game in that regard

Very sad. Particularly poignant reference to the fact his caddie was told when he was out on the course doing prep work for the coming weeks tournament

RIP Payne

20 years, wow, remember my housemate telling me the news. Did he play in the Ryder Cup at Brookline that year? Would have only been a month or so after that.

All a bit hazy, think he was one of the few to be a bit apologetic about their pitch invasion! Heíd had a bit of a career renaissance as well I think.

I seem to remember that when he pipped Mickelsen to win the US Open that year, he consoled Phil by telling him he's win plenty of Opens in the years to come. It's the only major that Lefty hasn't won.

Conceded the last hole and thus the match as was disgusted at the heckling that Monty was getting after Leonard's putt went in.
Edit: as the BBC article details fully...

Sorry, missed that link. Itís a really good read, thanks for sharing.

Donít think I ever knew the details. I just knew it was a plane crash, didnít realise it essentially flew the length of the US. Horrible but at least all on board would have been oblivious to the crash.

No live coverage of the last two days of The Masters on the BBC anymore. Sky wins exclusive live rights. Sigh.

Stewart conceded the match against Monty, due to the abuse Monty was getting, although the US had already won the cup by then

I think he[well his caddy anyway ;)] has topped it, as his caddy has been thrown out of the Presidents Cup after an altercation with a spectator, after the spectator shouted you fucking suck at Reed. :o

Biggest fucking wankstain in golf is P Reed

Guy I play golf with used to work for Adams on tour, in their tour van. The stories he tells about Reed are fucking shocking. He is that much of a twat. However, he's surpassed by his wife and the inlaws. Basically he's been targeted by a hick family and is fucked

Fully agreed. This guy has absolutely no likeability whatsoever.
