Koepka plays down world No 1 battle

Brooks Koepka has played down the significance of retaining his world No 1 ranking as he prepares to return to action after three months out.

Koepka headlines a heavyweight field at this week’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, his first competitive outing since undergoing treatment on a knee injury that had first surfaced in March last year.

The American managed to play through the problem until aggravating the injury during the CJ Cup in Korea in October, when he admitted to being in “excruciating” pain which forced his withdrawal from the tournament.
