'SLUGFEST': U.S. Open Champion Brooks Koepka on Sports Illustrated Cover


HITTING NEWSSTANDS TOMORROW, the next issue of Sports Illustrated features U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who owned Erin Hills last week with a 16-under par performance that put him in the record books.

The cover story written by senior writer Alan Shipnuck includes this observation from U.S. Ryder Cup assistant captain Steve Stricker:

"[Koepka] looks like he wants to fight you… He looks like he wants to punch you in the mouth. That's what I like about him—he's got an edge. For sure it's intimidating to play against. You get a guy who is built like a linebacker and pounds the crap out of the ball, and then looks over like he wants to brawl, yeah, that has an effect."
