Happy birthday Brooks Koepka. For those who follow golf, surely you know all about Koepka. Since we have a large golf audience at ESPN Southwest Florida we will do Brooks Koepka trivia today during Wiki-Pete-ia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show.

We play Wiki-Pete-ia every weekday at 4:45ish for prizes as we try to stump Pete with trivia. Be caller number nine at 239-337-3776 or 239-337-ESPN and be a winner. If you are not lucky enough to be caller number nine, then play at work or at home and impress your friends and family as we list the questions and answers below.

Koepka is one of the more interesting professional golfers as the sport slowly morphs into a post-Tiger Woods era. Koepka has star power. And he has swing power! He has a great game and is fun to watch. Interestingly, last year he parted from the PGA and joined the controversial LIV Tour. Sure, it was a cash grab. It just means we don’t get to see him as much playing against the best in the world at PGA Tour events. At the time of his decision, his body was starting to fail him so he took the guaranteed money at LIV. He has since felt much healthier and seems to be having second thoughts about leaving the PGA.
