The 148th Open Royal Portrush

Brooks Koepka's secret weapon


Caddie Ricky Elliott shows us the Portrush ropes

Brooks Koepka has a secret weapon for The 148th Open this week – his caddie Ricky Elliott.

Elliott is a Portrush native who knows the course inside out, which seems like an almost unfair advantage for a man who has won four of the last nine majors he’s competed in and finished in the top six at three others.

If Koepka lifts the Claret Jug for the first time this Sunday then Elliott will have played a huge role, so we took the opportunity to have the caddie talk us through the Dunluce links.
