Pete Cowen is one of those who had the opportunity to work with Brooks Koepka. Many who have worked with him emphasize that Koepka is one of the greatest talents and that he has the potential for the greatest things. Brooks is a specific person that attracts everyone's attention.

Many think that he is too cold and nonchalant, but things seem to be different. Cowen spoke to Golfmonthly about Koepka's qualities. Pete doesn't understand how Brooks doesn't win every tournament. “I don’t know how he doesn’t win every tournament, there are very few better than him at any part of the game," said Cowen.

Cowen suggests that Brooks' prolonged injury has been the primary issue. Competing under such circumstances is undeniably challenging. Nonetheless, with the acquisition of a fitness coach and his recovery, Koepka is beginning to resemble his former self.

"All his poor golf over last three years has been down to injuries as he couldn’t do what he wanted to do. He played when he was injured and that’s when he said his career was over. Then he got a different fitness guy and a different person working on his knee, ankle and hip and he’s back to being what he is now."

Brooks Koepka on his motives

His biggest motivation for playing golf is winning the Majors.

The fact is that from the beginning of his career, Brooks aspired to do the greatest things. He sometimes looked disinterested in tournaments that were not part of his plans. Cowen is a firm believer in Koepka. He believes that Brooks has the qualities to achieve his goal.

He’s only interested in the Majors. When we started together, he said he wanted to win double-digit Majors and it’s achievable for him; he’s halfway there. He’s ahead of everybody else in his era – nobody else is close to him in the last decade”.
