What do you think about Phil's beach picture after his recent dramatic weight loss? The Golf Channel headline says "Phil is ripped". Don't get me wrong, I'd love to lose that much weight & look that lean, but I thought he looks more like Tom Hanks in Castaway. Ripped wasn't the word that came to mind.

    The bar is lowered with golf when it comes to fitness. Brooks is a linebacker and now Phil is ripped. He is literally just not fat. That's not ripped if you ask me.

    no, he is still fat and soft. he has just been starving himself and lost muscle mass so he is a smaller version of fat.

    So Brandel Chamblee rips Koepka for his gradual weight loss for a photo shoot (my eyes are still burning) leading up to the Masters, but nothing but crickets for Phil fasting to lose 15 pounds on the eve of the Open?

    Ha! Phil looks dope. That pic looks better than BK. Good for him.

    Beat me to it. He looks better than BK by a mile. He’s got a mini Michael Phelps physique going.

    As soon as he quits whatever thing he's doing (likely Keto), he'll be back to his normal fatness. Betting he doesn't make it past Christmas.

    I have to disagree, Phil is not " fat" I dont think he is ripped but he is far from fat.

    I bet if he did a test his body fat percentage is over 30%.

    Otherwise known as skinny fat.

    I think he could be around 25% there.

    But, seems like he did it fast. And those types of diets bring backlash.

    That’s why

    I don’t diet!

    I just lift and now I have a bike. Lift, eat, ride, eat.

    Deadlifts and squats today, then just ate chicken cutlets, manicotti, broccoli rabe, bread. Little vino. But then lunch I eat salmon and greens. No carbs.

    Well, if I need carbs I have a family size box of Cheerios and have a handful or 2 ; )

    I hope Phil stays trim. He’s on his way.

    I think he looks healthy and in shape.

    Good for him. Not a ton of near 50 year old men walking around looking like that.

    Phil is as ripped as me when I suck my stomach in for pictures!!

    Don’t get me wrong, he is definitely a lot leaner than he used to be and I am sure that he is feeling the health benefits of the same but to describe him as ripped just ain’t right.

    I agree, I wish I had the discipline to do what he had to do.

    He's probably feeling a bit more randy in the bedroom. So Amy is likely on board with the weight loss.

    NO CARBS?? A cup of greens (e.g. spinach) has 1.1 g of carbohydrates. Cant say NO, you must mean LOW. Big difference in that type of consumption.
