ERIN, Wis. - Brooks Koepka isn't a "golfer" in the traditional sense of the word. He's big and strong, and he was never a junkie for the game growing up. He gravitated towards golf because he was good at it, and stayed with it because he kept improving.

But in the end, it was a good decision, right? No regrets from the man who spent his Sunday jostling for the lead of the U.S. Open, you'd probably think.

Not so!

Here's what he told GolfDigest in 2015

"If I could do it over again, I'd play baseball-100 percent, no doubt," he says. When sporting a baseball cap or jersey off the course, Koepka often gets asked if he's a major-leaguer. "To be honest, I'm not a big golf nerd," he says. "Golf is kind of boring, not much action. I come from a baseball family, and it's in my blood."

His great-uncle Dick Groat is the former Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop who won two World Series and was the 1960 National League MVP. Koepka played a mean Little League shortstop but somehow wasn't much of a hitter. "Could never hit a home run as a kid," he says. "Maybe I was too small, but it drove me nuts. I kind of wish I'd stuck with it."

Can't help but respect his honesty.

Top 10 early favorites to win Open Championship .
With the U.S. Open in the books, the major championship focus now shifts across the pond to the 2017 Open Championship.&nbsp;So, what can we expect? Well, it’s difficult to gauge any expectations off the past British Opens contested at Birkdale. The last two have been won with fairly modest scores. In 1998, Mark O’Meara defeated Brian Watts in a playoff after both men completed 72 holes at even par. In 2008, Padraig Harrington finished three-over par, but won going away. On the other hand, the previous seven champions at Birkdale were all won with scores of four-under or better. Lee Trevino won at 14-under in 1971.
