The golf world is disappointed and concerned with today’s news. The Ryder Cup is coming up later this month and fans are worried about Koepka’s status for the prestigious event.
“I hope you are ok and back to full strength for the Ryder Cup. They showed you on tv heading in early at East Lake. Best wishes,” one fan tweeted at Brooks.
“Brooks Koepka has withdrawn from the Tour Championship with a forearm injury. Ryder Cup starts in 15 days…” another fan added.
Brooks Koepka has withdrawn from the Tour Championship with a left wrist injury sustained when hitting a tree root on the 10th hole at East Lake. He withdrew after 12. He was 3 over for the day, will still get last-place FedEx money of $395,000

The 2021 Ryder Cup is scheduled to take place from Friday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Sept. 26.
Hopefully Koepka’s injury isn’t too serious and he’ll be able to compete in the Ryder Cup later this month.
