VIDEO: Brooks Koepka announced at Phoenix Open as ‘Brooks Cupcake’

How do you say Koepka? Kep-ka. Not too hard, right? But if it's a name you've hardly seen, it can be hard to say phonetically.

The first-tee announcer at the Waste Management Phoenix Open failed miserably in trying to announce Brooks Koepka's name on Sunday, apparently calling him "Brooks Cupcake."



Of course, the botch conjures the image of John Travolta completely botching Idina Menzel's name, calling her "Adele Dazeem" at the 2014 Oscars. Curiously, Travolta was in Ocala, Fla., this week for the season-opening LPGA event, the Coates Golf Championship.
