AFP, Los Angeles :

Brooks Koepka isn't one to sit still as the four-time major champion returns to the Travelers Championship less than a week after falling just short of winning a third straight US Open.
World number one Koepka finished three strokes shy of fellow American Gary Woodland who claimed his first major championship at Pebble Beach on Sunday.
Koepka, who is seeking to win his seventh PGA Tour title, joins defending champion Bubba Watson, former back-to-back winner Phil Mickelson, and rising star Viktor Hovland in the field for the $1.2 million event that begins Thursday in Cromwell, Connecticut.
Koepka says keeping busy is his way of staying sharp on the Tour and even though he was in contention in Pebble Beach he's not as tired as he was last year when he won his second consecutive Open.
"Last year I don't even think I knew where I was," he said. "It was all kind of a whirlwind.
