During his thirties, Brooks began a second career in golf course design, and was a partner in the firm of Knott-Linn-Brooks House based in Palo Alto, California. His first major project, the Southern Oaks Golf Club outside Fort Worth, opened in 1999 and was highly acclaimed. In his late forties, he began splitting his playing time between the PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour. He lives in Fort Worth.

After his 50th birthday in 2011, Brooks joined the Champions Tour. He came close to his first victory in June at the Principal Charity Classic, but bogeys on his final two holes allowed Bob Gilder to win by one shot. The solo 2nd-place finish was Brooks' best on any tour since his runner-up finish to Retief Goosen at the 2001 U.S. Open. In August 2014, Brooks again finished in solo second on the Champions Tour, after losing a sudden death playoff to Scott Dunlap at the Boeing Classic.

In 2015 Brooks was hired by Fox Sports as an-course analyst for the network's U.S. Open coverage.
