Brooks Koepka: Age, net worth and Bryson DeChambeau rivalry

Between 2017 and 2019, Brooks Koepka was golf's big-game hunter.

By the summer of 2019, Koepka had, quite remarkably, won just one full-field PGA TOUR event, but four majors. 

Here, we look at Koepka's life and career with everything you need to know about the two-time PGA TOUR Player of the Year.

How old is Brooks Koepka?

Born on 3rd May 1990, Koepka is 32 years old.

What is Brooks Koepka’s net worth?

As of 2022, Koepka’s net worth was estimated to be around $18m, however that will have likely increased sharply following his deal with LIV Golf, which reportedly will see him earn a guaranteed $100m.

Who is Brooks Koepka’s caddy?

Brooks Koepka’s caddy is Ricky Elliott, a Northern Irishman who grew up with Graeme McDowell and is friends with Ian Poulter. 

Elliott has worked with 2003 Open champion Ben Curtis and 2022 US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick, but has been on the bag of Koepka since 2013.

Which majors has Brooks Koepka won?

Having amassed a respectable major record with four top-10 finishes in his previous 11 starts, Koepka won the 2017 US Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin, defending the title the following year at Shinnecock Hills. A few months later, Koepka won his third major at the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club, which he'd win again in 2019 at Bethpage Black.

What did Brooks Koepka do to his hair?

At the start of 2022, Brooks Koepka shocked fans by dying his hair blond, saying that ‘blonds have more fun’, but said he wouldn't still be blond by the time his wedding came around that summer.

Is Brooks Koepka in Full Swing?

Yes; the second episode focuses on Koepka and his attempts to climb back to the top of the sport after struggling with injuries and a loss of form between 2020 and 2022.

Who is Brooks Koepka’s wife?

Brooks Koepka is married to Jena Sims, an actress and philanthropist. The pair dated for around four years before getting engaged, and were married a year later in June 2022.

Yes, Brooks has a younger brother called Chase, who also plays for LIV Golf, and achieved a career-high world ranking of 275.

What did Brooks Koepka say about LIV Golf?

Koepka was initially outspoken against LIV Golf, suggesting in its infancy that someone would 'sell out' and join, before cryptically acknowledging on his Twitter account his rival Bryson DeChambeau had made the controversial move. 

What happened between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau?

The pair had perhaps the biggest feud in golf for a couple of years, with them simply not seeing eye-to-eye. Koepka officially was irked by DeChambeau’s slow play, but the pair’s rivalry ran deeper, with DeChambeau frequently getting under the four-time major champion’s skin, often without even trying.

The most memorable instance came following a leaked TV interview where DeChambeau walked behind Koepka, prompting Koepka to roll his eyes, lose his train of thought and throw a couple of expletives into the ether.

The rivalry reached a point where DeChambeau was getting heckled by fans at tournaments, with Koepka doing little to calm things down. 

It even reached a point where people wondered how they’d fare on the same Ryder Cup team, with each agreeing to a week-long truce.

In November 2021, the pair faced off in The Match, with Koepka winning 4&3.

Aside from DeChambeau’s slow play, the pair seem to have very different approaches to golf. Koepka has always played the role of the jock, at odds with DeChambeau’s scientific approach to the game, thought the pair seem to have buried the hatchet.
