Ryder Cup 2021: What happens if Brooks Koepka can't play at Whistling Straits?
Playing through injury is something Koepka has done a lot of in the last year. In March, he dislocated his knee cap and suffered ligament damage on his right knee, eventually undergoing surgery on March 16. There was speculation that he would have to miss a significant portion of the season, but Koepka returned and played in the Masters three weeks later. He missed the cut at Augusta National and did not always look 100 percent healthy as he played on during the rest of the summer, but he did have a T-2 finish at the PGA Championship, a T-4 at the U.S. Open and a T-6 at the Open Championship.
