Brooks Koepka was in bed by 10 p.m. every night on the road in 2018

By his own evaluation, Brooks Koepka achieved half of his 2018 goals. Of course, he probably weighted some things -- like winning two majors -- more than other goals on the list.

However, one achievement Koepka was particularly proud of was sticking to his bedtime.

"On the road I was definitely in bed by 10 [p.m. every night]," Koepka said Wednesday ahead of the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Koepka detailed some of his goals for last year, including a few hits and misses. One of the hits: winning multiple times.

"I think that was where I saw myself and how, what I should be doing, winning multiple times a year," he said. "To knock that off was nice."

However, Koepka didn't achieve several goals, including staying healthy. After finishing dead last in this tournament a year ago, Koepka went under the knife for tendon surgery. He came back in May.

"Stay healthy is always a big goal and obviously missing quite a few months there was disappointing," he said.

The other goal where Koepka came up short? Making every cut. He didn't get to the weekend at the RBC Canadian Open, but perhaps missing that payday led to a much bigger one at Bellerive, along with the Wanamaker trophy.

"I wasn't happy on that plane ride home. I can tell you that much," he said. "Worked out a couple weeks later, though. It did."
