The Action Network spoke with several of today’s top professional golfers to find out their favorite personal golf betting stories.

Brooks Koepka

When: June, 2015
Where: Chambers Bay

When asked his favorite on-course betting story, the world’s current No. 1-ranked player first starts to tell a tale of losing to a certain fellow pro during an Open Championship practice round without having any cash on hand. He then remembers a practice round for the U.S. Open four years ago, when he didn’t even need his clubs to bank a wager.

“I once played against Phil [Mickelson] with no money in my pocket. That was at Muirfield in 2013 – and we lost.

“Had a good one at Chambers Bay, too. I was probably 80 yards away and I looked at my caddie and we made a bet.

“Well, I threw it into the cup. Straight in, which I thought was pretty impressive.

“Yeah, first try. Just went right in.

“I still haven’t seen the money. Still haven’t gotten paid. I’ll be alright, though.”
