Brooks Kopeka has made no excuses for his poor play of late outside of the PGA Championship where he finished second to Phil Mickelson. But it’s clear his knee has been really bothering him, and here’s new video showing how much it’s still hurting.

It doesn’t look great, but to be fair the last winner of a US Open at Torrey Pines was Tiger Woods, who did it on a broken leg with a torn ACL.
And let’s not forget Koepka’s gutty performance at Kiawah Island a month ago, where he said his continuing rehab was actually more difficult than the challenging course. Though he struggled to even bend down to line up his putts, he plowed through even when the crowd at 18 on Sunday rushed behind him and made things worse.
We’ll see if he can battle through this weekend and stay amongst the favorites to win the championship he’s captured twice already.
