Brooks Koepka is known for his controversial statements that cause a lot of reactions. Speaking on the BS w/ Jake Paul podcast, Koepka stressed that he doesn't follow golf in his spare time. "I don't watch it in my free time, no," Koepka told the BS w/ Jake Paul podcast, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!

"I'm a big sports guy so I'll probably go watch the NFL, MLB, anything”. When asked if golf is a 'real sport', Koepka did not have a clear answer. Brooks seems to have no respect for golfers, as he believes that golfers don't put in as much effort as other athletes do.

"I don't know, sometimes I think it is and sometimes I think it isn't - I kind of flip-flop on that one. Sometimes I look at the guys, and I hate dogging them, but I know what real athletes do, I know how guys train, how they do all this stuff.

Then watching some guys [golfers] who’ll go 'I’ll go slam seven or eight beers every night and then go play in the morning' Some people do that."

Brooks Koepka: Golf is probably the easiest sport on your body

Brooks believes that in other sports, athletes have to be much more serious.

On the other hand, Koepka emphasized that golf is the easiest sport for your body. "There's no way I’d do it. If I'm in the Olympics and I'm running tomorrow, what am I going to do that night to prepare for it? Not that.

It's probably the easiest sport on your body. You’ve just got to walk four miles, up a couple of hills. I don’t even have to carry the clubs, I'm not carrying anything." His statements will certainly cause reactions from his colleagues, as well as golf fans. Koepka was brutally honest, and he didn't seem to think much about the reactions to his statements.
