Brooks Koepka says he will rely on his body to tell him whether or not he can tee-up at next month’s Masters after undergoing knee surgery.
The world number 12, who enjoyed his best Masters finish with a tied-second result at Augusta National in 2019, went under the knife after dislocating his right kneecap and suffering ligament damage with family in Florida.
“Whatever my body says, I’m going to listen,” Koepka told Golfweek after surgery on Tuesday.
The four-time Major winner was forced to withdraw from The Players Championship earlier this month because of the injury but Koepka fans can be consoled that it’s not the left knee that plagued him for the best part of 18 months before his comeback victory in Phoenix.

The Masters Tournament gets underway on the 8th of April, giving Koepka a little over two weeks to get fit ahead of the year’s first Major.
