The PGA Tour may be playing at one of the most iconic venues in golf but, on Wednesday, it was Brooks Koepka who was gaining the attention, with his new bleach blonde hairstyle causing a storm on social media.
Reminding us of Gazza at the 1996 Euros, or perhaps an early 2000's Eminem, the blonde look has previously been rocked by Koepka before, with the four-time Major champion changing his social media profile pictures to an old-school photo of him with the same bleach-blonde-coloured hair.
“My barber has been wanting to do it for a while, so I told him I’d do it,” Koepka said. “There wasn’t much behind it other than we were just messing around. It probably won’t last until the wedding,” said Koepka, who is marrying Jena Sims in June. “Hopefully it’s out by then. If it was still in there, I think Jena would kill me.”
