KAPALUA, Hawaii – Like most players Brooks Koepka began last season with a list of goals and when he reviewed his year there were plenty of accomplishments.
“To win multiple times. I think that was where I saw myself and what I should be doing, winning multiple times a year,” the world No. 1 said on Wednesday at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. “To knock that off was nice. I felt really good about that.”
Koepka actually won three times in 2018, although his victory at the CJ Cup in October was during the 2018-19 schedule, with his title defense at the U.S. Open and victory at the PGA Championship and he was also voted the PGA Tour Player of the Year.

Despite that success Koepka said he checked off about “half” his goals last season, pointing out that he missed a good portion of the spring with a wrist injury and he didn’t make every cut.
“I like playing the weekends,” said Koepka, who missed his only cut at a non-team event at the RBC Canadian Open in July. “I wasn’t happy on that plane ride home. I can tell you that much.”
But winning multiple titles wasn’t his only accomplishment last season.
“In bed by 10 o’clock every night. I did good on that one. Every night,” he laughed before adding, “On the road. On the road.”
