Brooks Koepka concludes with the words of disappointment

World Number 1 player couldn't do it. 3-in-a-row win was not easy. Brooks attended the winner's ceremony as the defending champion and gave the winner's jacket to Kodai.

Winner's prize, the whole Miyazaki beef cow was given to Kodai this year. Brooks won 2 years in a row and said that he has 4 freezers filled with beef and there is no more space there, not even for ice cream.

Brooks marked all 4 rounds in 60s, and total of 9 under par, but that was not enough to take the win.
"I just have to say that it was disappointing. My shots were the worst of this season and the putts just didn't go in. Bad 4 days. This is great course and great tournament with so many great fans. I really wanted to do better. I am sorry I couldn't."

Even Tiger Woods wasn't able to do the 3-in-a-row trick back when he was the No.1. So, what Jumbo Ozaki, the Japanese Legend, has done is something that not even the World Number 1 can easily achieve.
