Brooks Koepka has taken to social media to reveal the cover image of himself in ESPN's Body Issue that goes live on September 4.

Koepka, 29, told the media during this year's Players Championship that he had lost 24 pounds in less than five months to get himself ready for the body shoot. At the time, Koepka said he "felt out of sorts" because of it.

 

 

According to reports, Koepka said he went from 212 pounds to 190 pounds in that time, and his driving statistics were off after training twice a day and eating healthier, but that he was eager to "be able to eat again" once the five months were over.

In Koepka's post on Wednesday, he encouraged his followers to "go get a copy" when it comes out in two weeks time. 

FedEx Cup leader Justin Thomas was one of the first to respond when writing: "Nah man, I'm good."

Koepka revealed his latest post to his followers just 24 hours before teeing off in the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake, where the World No.1 will go in search of his first FedEx Cup.

With a new scoring system in place to reward those players in the FedEx Cup standings heading into the final tournament of the PGA Tour season, the big-hitting American will start at 7-under par in third place, three strokes behind Thomas on 10-under par.

Patrick Cantlay starts two strokes back on 8-under par.

Koepka lies third, with Patrick Reed on 6-under in fourth and Rory McIlroy in fifth on 5-under par. 

The winner of the FedEx Cup will clinch a whopping $15 million, so you would like to think Brooks might be up for winning this week.

We doubt this guy will be backing Koepka this week, though!
