He’s sick of his crap
Bryson DeChambeau is probably the most disliked man in golf. He does all these little issues—like modify his irons to make all of them the identical lengths and putt side-saddle—that may rub folks the incorrect method. And talks about all of it in a method that makes me really feel like he’s attempting to persuade the world that he’s discovered the one appropriate option to play golf. This sort of stuff has made DeChambeau his justifiable share of enemies on Tour, together with Brooks Koepka.
Koepka was attempting to do an interview with Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis after his second spherical at the PGA Championship on Friday when DeChambeau walked behind him. The clack, clack, clack of DeChambeau’s metallic spikes (a rarity on Tour) broke Koepka’s focus.
“Typically, um—I misplaced my prepare of thought, listening to that bulls—,” Koepka mentioned after rolling his eyes so exhausting they nearly fell out of his head. “F—— Christ.”
Koepka and DeChambeau have some historical past. Their feud dates again to 2019, when Koepka took issue with DeChambeau’s slow pace of play. The 2 have continued to commerce barbs since. In January 2020, DeChambeau mentioned on a Twitch stream that he was unimpressed with Koepka’s physique in his ESPN Physique Challenge images. (Koepka responded by posting a photograph of his 4 main trophies, saying he was certainly “2 short of a 6 pack.”)
DeChambeau informed SI’s Michael Rosenberg final 12 months that Koepka’s remarks are “humorous, to be trustworthy with you. There are occasions the place it’s like, ‘O.Okay., dude, it’s too far.’ I’ve gone as much as him a few occasions and tried to speak to him. And there have been occasions the place, you already know, I used to be gonna go speak to him when he mentioned one thing, and I’m similar to, ‘You realize, it’s not even value it. It’s not even value my time to attempt to create one thing.’ ”
And this isn’t even the primary time that DeChambeau’s metallic spikes have triggered a colleague to lose his cool. In January, Jon Rahm narrowly missed a birdie putt and complained about spike marks on the green with a string of expletives that was caught on a greenside microphone. DeChambeau (carrying metallic spikes, after all) was enjoying within the group forward of Rahm.
The opposite attention-grabbing query concerning the Koepka video is the way it got here to be launched. Was it much like the case of the leaked Joe Buck–Troy Aikman video from October, the place somebody on the manufacturing workforce grabbed it? The Twitter consumer who posted the Koepka video mentioned one other consumer alerted him to it after finding it on a media server, which raises extra questions than it solutions.
