The Brooks Koepka-Brandel Chamblee back-and-forth has taken a turn this week as Koepka marches toward back-to-back PGA Championships.

While other players are resting ahead of the PGA Championship and have taken reconnaissance trips to Bethpage Black, Koepka will ready himself by playing his way into the major. "I like building a little bit of rhythm, finding your game, figuring out how to score, to manage your game and it's worked for me," the world's No. 3-ranked player said ahead of Thursday's start of the Byron Nelson. "We've looked at stats and usually my second week out is my best week.

"This is Tiger in 2000 ... it’s an athletic tsunami," said Chamblee. "He’s doing everything. Nobody has it all. Tiger had it all. Tiger is the only person to have won a major championship by double digits in the last 100 years and he did it twice ... and here comes a guy who has played golf over the last three days with nothing missing. Not one component of the game missing. And he’s on the cusp of building a double-digit lead."

“As a golf fan, I’ve seen and read some things where people are saying [Koepka’s performance] is boring. But it wasn’t boring when Tiger was doing it. It was marveling at majesty, at greatness," added David Duval. "I’m not saying he’s Tiger Woods by any stretch, but that’s how he’s playing golf right now. You’ve got to appreciate this expertise and this excellence.”

Bulletproof, immovable, and playing a different game to the rest, Brooks Koepka is doing a better impression of Tiger Woods than Tiger Woods.

He also won the Masters in 2001 to become the first ever to hold all four major titles at the same time - a feat that has since become known as the Tiger Slam.
