Special K? What he's done in the majors is certainly special and I think it fits him rather well. Kinda catchy too!

    How about B-Line, given his quick pace and general demeanor?

    IMO, it's just too cheesy... but in friends and family circles we often just call him 'BK' or 'DYEL', so I guess I don't have a more suitable or creative alternative... :D

    His PR people need to get on the phone with Burger King and get him an endorsement ASAP. ****, if he grew out a beard, he would look very similar to the current King.

    My friend calls him Cupcake. Granted, he doesn’t much care for Koepka but still...kinda funny.

    The general public has a problem with Koepka the same way they have a problem with the game of golf. All he needs to do is keep playing. Public be damned.

    Nicknames should never be forced, but rather come naturally. If you have to brainstorm a nickname, it's never going to stick.

    I think you may have your Hawks confused with your Sarazens.

    I don't think so.

    Sub Zero is definitely the winner. This is clearly BK.
