This younger generation of players doesn't stand in awe of Tiger Woods on the golf course.

They have the utmost respect for what he has accomplished, but these men want to beat the 14-time major champion and keep him from getting to Jack Nicklaus' record 18 titles.

Brooks Koepka is no exception.

"I think I already spoiled everybody of their dreams the last time we played," Koepka said of his PGA Championship win in 2018 where he fended off a charging Woods on the back nine to win his third major championship. "So, sorry."

Woods is second all time in major championship wins but has not won one since the 2008 U.S. Open.

In that time, a new generation of golfers has come into the game and relishes beating Woods. There is not nearly the intimidation factor in Woods' game as there once was, and now players are actively trying to keep him from winning rather than standing in awe of him.

"I think everybody in the field would love to stop him. I mean, I enjoyed stopping history," Koepka said at his press conference Tuesday at the Masters. "I had a great time."

Woods also sits second all time in PGA Tour wins with 80 and has 107 victories across all tours.

He is arguably the greatest ever and has been rounding back into form as of late, earning top-10 finishes in each of his last two major appearances.

Koepka couldn't deny the fact that while he wants to beat Woods, seeing him back in form is exciting to watch and Koepka fully expects Woods to have a good showing this week at Augusta National.
