Brooks Koepka not happy with Masters result

Most people would be thrilled with a tied-seventh finish at The Masters.

Brooks Koepka isn’t ‘most people’.

The four-time major champion had a solid week at Augusta National, winding up on ten-under-par, ten shots adrift of runaway winner Dustin Johnson.

However, despite breaking par in all four rounds and posting his second top-10 in as many weeks, the 30-year-old cut a forlorn figure at play’s end.

• 'Dizzy' DeChambeau vows to come back stronger

“I'm not really excited right now,” said Koepka. “Whoo, seventh. I don't know what else to say to that. I'm not too happy. It's disappointing.

“I didn't play very good. Just didn't make any putts, missed it in a lot of bad spots, and didn't even come close to making enough birdies. It's a struggle when it's very soft like this. You've got to kind of be a picker. Dustin's a little bit of a picker. Even Rory plays well when it's wet too.”

Koepka added that he found it a struggle to get motivated without patrons on-site.

“It’s becoming, I guess, the norm, but it's still very odd at this place to see it,” he said. “You kind of miss the roars. I think that's the one thing I miss the most is just kind of the excitement, the buzz that goes around.

• The eye-watering prize money at the Masters

• WATCH: Tiger takes TEN at par-3 12th 

"Even when you're just kind of walking around on Tuesday, you can almost feel it in the air at this place, and I kind of miss it.

“It’s just very dull. There's just not that atmosphere going. Hopefully, soon, we can have them back.”
