"His ball-striking is extremely solid," Mickelson summed up. "He's a wonderful putter. I can see why he earned his right to get on the European Tour so quickly."

Yet Koepka's ambitions hardly end there. He envisions himself playing regularly on both major tours, eventually earning the luxury of picking his spots the way Mickelson, Tiger Woods and a handful of golf's other big stars do.

"That's a long way off," Koepka said, "but it's been an interesting ride so far. I've seen more crazy weather in a few months than I'd seen before in my entire life.

"Some of the adventures have been good, some not so good. I miss my family and friends sometimes, and once or twice, I've been sick of playing golf.

"But if you're looking for a little bit of flavor to go with your game," he said, motioning over his shoulder at the scudding gray clouds rolling across Muirfield, "this is awfully tough to beat."
