The old quote from Brooks Koepka about Tiger Woods is going viral

Brooks Koepka is now the number one golfer in the world, reaching the top of the rankings after his victory in the PGA Championship this weekend. The 29-year-old golfer now has four major championships, winning the PGA and the US Open in consecutive years.

Koepka came out of nowhere, although the dominant golfer has always believed that he was capable of doing it.

The Tiger Woods-style domination of this weekend's event (he led from start to finish and the leader was only in doubt during a couple of holes Sunday night) is something he's been aiming for.

In fact, a couple of years ago, Koepka told one of his former coaches that this would happen.

"I'm stronger than the tiger, I'm longer, I hit it straighter, I have a better short game than him and I put it better, how will Tiger beat me?

Four years ago, Brooks Koepka told the Florida St. badisting coach that he recruited him: "I'm stronger than Tiger, I'm longer, I hit straight, I have a better short game than him and I put it better." How will Tiger beat me?

Of course, Tiger beat him in The Masters, although it was not a competition this weekend.

Woods and Koepka joined for the first two rounds of the tournament. Koepka was 17 strokes better in those two rounds.

Hopefully we will see a better version of Tiger at the US Open, where Koepka will be the main favorite.
