Brooks Koepka set to miss Masters after knee surgery
Brooks Koepka will be missed Mastery after surgery: The world’s number 12’s knee surgery could potentially exclude him from this year’s Masters.
Brooks Koepka questioned his Masters this year after undergoing knee surgery. The world number 12 remains absent, having not played in competition for more than a month. His last appearance was when he won the Waste Management Open in Phoenix.
Koepka confirmed to Golfweek that his operation took place on March 16 and is starting to recover. As the Masters approached, however, the American showed no signs of a quick comeback.
The 30-year-old posted pictures of himself after the operation with a knee bandage on his social media. The legend read “Only one way to get out of here” with the “up” labeled in the form of an arrow.

He told Golfweek his injury was a dislocation of the kneecap with ligament damage. The injury came while he was with his family shortly after his victory in Phoenix. However, he said this time around; there will be no quick return until you are 100% sure that they are ready to play by declaring.
“Whatever my body says, I will listen to it.”
With the Masters set to start on April 8, Koepka will be in a race to recover for the major. Although, with his knee in the early stages of recovery, the outcome of his onset looks increasingly questionable.
