At the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Brooks Koepka was probably hoping to make a grand entrance. And he would have, if the first tee announcer hadn’t given him a moniker that sounds more like something you’d name a beribboned Yorkie at a dog show. We’re still not entirely sure how Brooks Koepka (pronounced kep-kuh) became Brooks Cupcake, but we supposed the best thing about it is that his opponents might start to underestimate him. Defeat is always better when the least expect it.
And if it’s any consolation, at least they didn’t make him sound like a parodic porn star.
