Four-time major winner Brooks Koepka could miss next month’s Masters in the US after having surgery on his right knee.

The world No.12 has has been sidelined since tying for second place at the WGC-Workday Championship earlier this month.

Koepka hurt his knee while with his family in Florida and told USA Today he had dislocated his kneecap and suffered ligament damage.

“Whatever my body says, I’m going to listen,” the American said.

The 30-year-old had surgery last week and will wait to see if he can play in the Masters, which begins on April 8.

Koepka posted a collage of photos to Twitter on Sunday evening, including an image of his bandaged right knee and another of him on crutches.

The former world No.1 has won the US PGA Championship and the US Open twice each, while he tied for second in the 2019 Masters.
