Chase’s Koepka-tough 2023 season has left him standing on the edge of relegation. This is mostly because of his lackluster performance, while Brooks continues to shine in the league. Brooks acknowledged Chase’s difficulties but made it obvious that there wasn’t much he could do to help. 

Chase will have the option to participate in a relegation playoff event despite the obstacles. It is a lifeline he has to grab. The LIV Golf League experience of Chase Koepka has been turbulent, with many highs and lows.

He’s come a long way from the lower-level golf competitions a little over a year ago, which is a credit to his commitment and diligence. Performance is crucial in professional sports, but this season, Chase hasn’t been able to stay up with the opposition due to the harsh nature of the game.

Sentimentality has no place in LIV Golf, a league that features some of the best players in the world. Chase’s probable demotion serves as a depressing reminder that, even among golfers, a person’s success or failure is largely based on their ability on the course.
