Brooks vs Rory - Rivalry?

Recommended Posts

Interesting quotes coming from Brooks Koepka whilst he is in Korea for the CJ Cup. Copied and pasted it below...

 

“I’ve been out here for, what, five years. Rory hasn’t won a major since I’ve been on the PGA Tour. So I just don’t view it as a rivalry,” There is more on it on the link below but I thought it would be worthwhile sharing here. Interesting approach from Brooks. Might this be the spark that Rory needs?

Brooks isn’t Rory....maybe he will be some day but he’s not there at present...

 

He should keep his head down and let his play do the talking...

 

It’s not a good look to scoff at others...and that’s what he is doing...

Hahaha. Your crazy. I would be willing to bet that this year Rory has a better year than Brooks.

Brooks may get to Rorys level but he’s not close at present.

This is inarguable.

 

Rorys career is astounding given his age....so is brook’s....but one is quantifiably better

Brooks has been playing better golf in the bigger events than Rory the last couple of years. No one can argue otherwise. But to say Rory is the most overrated golfer ever is just plain stupid.

 

Just look at the career resumes Chris posted. McIlroy’s is clearly better.

> LOL! Brooks didn't struggle on the Challenge Tour or his one full season on the ET. Brooks played 21 CT events over two seasons (2012/2013). He had 4 wins and 8 other top 10s in those 21 events. He won 3 CT events over 7 events in 2013 that earned him his ET tour card. In 2014 including majors on the ET he had a win and 4 other top 10's including the US Open. BK also played well enough in PGA Tour events as a non member in 2014 to earn his PGA Tour card. When he joined the PGA Tour for the 2014/2015 wrap around season he won in his third event at Phoenix and finished in the top 10 in the other two evenrts. Please explain to me how any of that is considered struggling? Since BK became a PGA Tour member in late 2014 he has 7 PGA Tour wins with 4 majors. Rory in the same time span has 8 PGA Tour wins and no majors. Rory from 2015 to present also won 3 ET events. In the same time frame BK won twice on the Japanese Tour in their best event. Check the list of winners of the Dunlop Phoenix before you dismiss it. Since BK got his PGA Tour card his and Rorys careers are quite close on the PGA Tour. That can not be argued.

I think Brooks would have had a better argument if he had been younger than Rory. They are pretty much the same age and career vs career you would take Rory all day long. To be fair though, if the two of them could get some sort of rivalry going I think that it could only be good for golf. Let’s add JT in there to the the Gary Player to Brooks and Rory’s Nicklaus and Palmer and things would be fantastic.

LOL, I suppose Costanza would say it's not a troll if you believe it.

I haven't really seen a true rivalry in years. Maybe when Jack first hit the tour and faced Arnold. Tom Watson and Jack perhaps for a period. Too many good players for there to be a rivalry between 2 players.

FWIW, do,y’all remember the 2003-2007 Vijay-Tiger era...

They were setting the world on fire with Goosen, Phil and Ernie lighting it up as well...

 

Vijay had one of the greatest stretches in history, eclipsed only by Woods and Nicklaus and perhaps stints by Johnny Miller and Lee Trevino...

 

This was such an underrated few years...I think Vijay won over $10M in one year...and took over the number one ranking....10 million dollars is ludicrous...

 

I still don’t think we appreciate how great the early 2000s were from a viewer standpoint....

Take away Rorys good stretch 2012 - 2014 and you have an average top golfer. He got on a hot run just like Speith and he is just another top 30 player nothing outstanding.

He won 3x last year including the Players, Tour Championship and 15MM for the fedex cup which BK was leading at the outset,

 

He was voted Player of the Year.

 

He is 2nd in the world owgr.

 

And you’re comparing him to Matt Wallace?

 

And what do you mean, got on a hot run? He won 4 majors in 4 years. That’s pretty much exactly what BK has done. And for BK, he has 2 PGAs. No masters, no Open.

 

And you sure he is not going to hit a drought? Tiger and Jack both had 2 year droughts right in their primes.

 

I’m all for BK winning, I always like a winner. But he just sounds defensive and lacking in professionalism pointing out Rory hasn’t won a Major.

 

Sure, it’s “true”. Tiger and Jack could have said all kinds of bush league stuff about their competitors. But they never did. Not once.

 

Well, 9&8 but....; )

He's got two Fed-Ex Cup trophies and $25 million dollars that say he's quite a bit better than average !

While we're taking things away and/or pretending they didn't happen, I'd like to submit the following for Consideration:

 

2 pitches from game 6 of the 2011 World Series

The referees from game 3 of the 2006 NBA finals

Kent Hrbek and Ron Gant from the 1991 World Series

All four major winners from 2009

Screech from Saved By The Bell

Agreed, but at the end the only number people will remember is 4...

And Brooks probably thinks Jack Nicklaus is washed up because he hasn't won a major in over 30 years.

 

Move along, please...
