Brooks Koepka is not a name you've likely heard of yet.

The 23-year-old hasn't been playing much of the PGA Tour recently (he's been playing Europe instead) but he nearly won last week at the Open and he's going to be a star on US soil someday.

And when he becomes a star, one story from his trips around the world is going to permeate your television. 

The former Florida State Seminole, and roommate of Peter Uihlein, once ate horse meat in Kazakhstan. 

Steve DiMeglio of USA Today interviewed him and asked him what that experience was like.

"That I won't ever forget."

He also talked about taking on the Challenge Tour (where he won three times) and European Tour instead of the PGA Tour.

"It's been a bit different. But traveling the world is a great experience. You learn how to handle yourself, you see other cultures and you just take everything in. Through it all, at the end of the day it's just golf, and I felt my game was good enough to expect results."

It certainly is.
