When he was asked what he would be if not a golfer, Brooks was very quick to reply. He said, “I mean, I’d want to be a major league baseball player.” In fact, this is not surprising for fans as he has previously gone in-depth with this reply. He said, “If I could do it over again, I’d play baseball—100 percent, no doubt… To be honest, I’m not a big golf nerd… Golf is kind of boring, not much action.

He opened up, “If I’ve just come home from a tournament, I can promise you Monday is a day of rest. Probably not moving off the couch, if I’m honest with you.

But then the other days, honestly I just like hanging out with my fiance and my dog.”
