Brooks Koepka Ready To Return From Injury For The First Time Since Surgery

Brooks Koepka is set to make a return to the game that made him a star.

The four-time major winner will be on the green for the first time next week’s at the AT&T Byron Nelson. It’s the first time he’ll be on the course since the Masters.

Koepka was on the list for the AT&T Byron Nelson, the first time that he’s been on the tour list since the Masters.

The 31-year-old Koepka is still working his way back from surgery. A dislocated right kneecap suffered in early March which eventually needed surgery to repair his medial patellofemoral ligament.

Koepka won the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February and finished tied for second at the WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession two starts later.

The injury for Koepka could have kept him out for up to six-months, but he was able to get back to playing after just a month of working his way back and being dedicated to being back and healthy.

Reports say that Koepka was clearly in pain that week and couldn’t bend his leg to read putts, eventually missing the cut by two shots.

We will see if Koepka can bounce back at age 31 to be back to being competitive and good at the sport that has made him famous. For now, it’s a long road anyway you cut it, but one that Koepka seems poised to take on.
