Brooks Koepka will be looking to win his third PGA Championship when he tees it up at Southern Hills Country Club on Thursday, and he is hoping things go a lot more smoothly for him as the week goes on.

Koepka showed up late to his scheduled press conference ahead of the PGA Championship on Tuesday. He explained why in a funny video he posted on social media. The four-time major champion somehow locked himself out of his car while the car was running, which seems almost impossible with modern technology.

A short while after, Koepka shared an update saying someone from the PGA brought an extra key and unlocked the car, which was likely a courtesy car from event organizers. Fortunately, the little mishap did not cost him much time.

Koepka is not always a fan of technology, which we saw when he snatched a phone away from a fan during a tournament last month (video here). Hopefully Tuesday’s incident is not a preview of things to come.
