Adam Scott says it is too early to start comparing Brooks Koepka to the legendary Tiger Woods.
Woods landed his 15th major at the Masters last month, leaving him just three behind all-time leader Jack Nicklaus, while the Californian has also clinched a magnificent 81 PGA Tour titles.
During his prime, the 43-year-old was almost unbeatable and he held all four major titles at the same time in the 2000-01 season, a stretch that included a 15-stroke win at the US Open at Pebble Beach.
Koepka is putting on a show similar to that witnessed at Pebble Beach at the US PGA Championship this week, with the American leading the field by a record seven strokes heading into Sunday’s final round.

The world number three would join Woods in becoming the only players to have successfully retained the US PGA crown and there are already comparisons being made between the two US stars.
However, Australian Scott believes it is premature to suggest Koepka will be the new Tiger. “It’s not quite the same, and that’s no disrespect to Brooks,” he was quoted as saying by Reuters. “I think comparing anything to Tiger is a little unfair in a good or a bad way. “It would be probably bringing down what he managed to accomplish. He did this multiple times in majors, let alone (regular PGA Tour) tournaments.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
