Brooks Koepka will be determined to clinch his second Waste Management Phoenix Open trophy in Arizona, USA. 
The American star won this tournament in 2015 and it was his first-ever PGA Tour event and moved to 19th in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Koepka then won his first major championship by claiming the U.S Open title at Erin Hills, Wisconsin in 2017. 
His win tied him for the record of the lowest U.S Open score at 16 under (tied with Rory McIlroy's 2011 record).

Koepka enjoyed a successful 2018 despite undergoing wrist surgery after the 2017 season and he was able to recover ahead of the U.S Open.
The man nicknamed the Hulk successfully defended his U.S Open title in 2018 becoming the first player since Curtis Strange in 1989 to win consecutive U.S Open titles.
The Hulk went on to clinch his third major at the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.
In October 2018, Koepka won the CJ Cup, and the win moved him to number one in the Official World Golf Ranking.
More success followed as Koepka clinched the 2019 PGA Championship, the first to successfully defend the PGA Championship since Tiger Woods in 2007.

The year 2020 saw Koepka struggle with injuries as he was plagued by hip and knee pains for the majority of the season and he withdrew from competition prior to the FedEx Cup playoffs.
The 30-year-old recently parted ways with swing instructor Claude Harmon III, who helped guide him to four major championships and the top spot in the world ranking.
Koepka, who is currently preparing for the Waste Management Phoenix Open, confirmed the news. 
“I love Claude, we had a great run and he’s still family to me, but unfortunately we’re not working together anymore,” Koepka said.
