Bryson DeChambeau had a midnight epiphany during US Open

Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau is known for being a quirky guy. So this story about him from the US Open fits right into his character.

DeChambeau likes to hit some balls after he completes a round. He kept with that practice after hitting a two-over 73 at Torrey Pines on Thursday. The session went for a while and continued even when it was dark.

DeChambeau wasn’t able to resolve the issue that was bothering him through his practice round. However, the 27-year-old golfer says he discovered something in the middle of the night. After having his epiphany, DeChambeau tried out his idea in the morning.

Whatever DeChambeau thought of worked, because he shot two-under on Friday to put himself in contention.

DeChambeau’s methods seem odd to many, but they work for him.

Brooks Koepka

The rivalry between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka has been one of the best stories in golf this season, and DeChambeau wants to make sure he keeps it going.

Koepka was interviewed by Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis after his opening round at the US Open on Thursday, and DeChambeau happened to walk by (once again). Knowing full well what happened the last time he passed through a Koepka interview, DeChambeau decided to intentionally become part of the story.

If you remember, DeChambeau also walked by when Koepka was being interviewed by Lewis at the PGA Championship last month. Video footage then leaked out of Koepka saying he “lost my train of thought hearing that bulls—,” which was presumably a reference to the sound of DeChambeau’s metal spikes. You can see the video here.

The bad blood between Koepka and DeChambeau goes back quite a while. Koepka has openly criticized DeChambeau’s playing style, and Bryson once trolled Brooks over his physique. Koepka is known for his relaxed and carefree attitude, while DeChambeau obsesses over analytics and is more of a golf junkie.

Koepka and DeChambeau know their rivalry is good for golf. We’re glad to see them keep it going.

Brooks Koepka requested Bryson DeChambeau video for funny reason

Brooks Kopeka Bryson DeChambeau

Brooks Koepka hardly ever seems bothered by anything, and that was the case last week when a clip of the four-time major champion showcasing his hatred for Bryson DeChambeau went viral. The video was never supposed to get out, but apparently Koepka wanted a copy of it before it did.

Koepka was being interviewed by Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis following the second round of the the PGA Championship when he was distracted by DeChambeau walking by him. He said he “lost my train of thought hearing that bulls—,” which was presumably a reference to the sound of DeChambeau’s metal spikes. You can see the video here.

The footage, which never made it to the air, somehow leaked. NBC eventually had it removed, but not before it was viewed millions of times. Dylan Dethier of Golf.com took a closer look at how the clip got out, and he learned a funny piece of information about Koepka requesting it beforehand.

Dethier says he was told by multiple sources that Koepka asked the Golf Channel for the clip because he wanted to send it to his buddies and have a laugh. Koepka didn’t expect it to go viral, but he even told Lewis that he “honestly wouldn’t care” when the reporter said the production crew was going to have a good chuckle over it.

The bad blood between Koepka and DeChambeau goes back quite a while. Koepka has openly criticized DeChambeau’s playing style, and Bryson once trolled Brooks over his physique. Koepka is known for his relaxed and carefree attitude, while DeChambeau obsesses over analytics and is more of a golf junkie. That’s probably why their personalities clash.

Tom Brady even used the Koepka video to troll DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers, whom the quarterback will face in “The Match” this year. Koepka took that in stride, so we doubt he cares that the clip went viral.

Bryson DeChambeau taunts Brooks Koepka over Twitter

Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau really is not holding back about his rivalry with Brooks Koepka.

A video of Koepka reacting to DeChambeau passing by him at the PGA Championship went viral. Koepka is seen rolling his eyes after seeing DeChambeau.

Koepka’s funny reaction has become a meme, one even used by Koepka himself.

DeChambeau replied to Koepka’s tweet on Wednesday and said it was “nice to be living rent free” in Koepka’s head.

DeChambeau does seem to be in Koepka’s head somewhat. Koepka’s reaction in that video made it clear how much he dislikes Bryson.

The two top golfers have had issues at least for a few years. In 2019, the two had a conflict over DeChambeau’s pace of play.

Fans need to see Koepka subbed in for Phil Mickelson at “The Match” to really boost ratings.

Tom Brady savagely trolls Aaron Rodgers to promote ‘The Match’

Tom Brady

Tom Brady is once again partnering with Phil Mickelson in this year’s installment of “The Match,” and the seven-time Super Bowl champion has wasted no time talking serious trash to his opponents.

Turner Sports announced on Wednesday that Brady and Mickelson will face Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau on July 6 at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Mont. Not long after the news was released, Brady got to work trolling Rodgers and DeChambeau. He did not hold back.

That, of course, is a reference to the Green Bay Packers kicking a field goal late in their playoff loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season. They were down 8 (Brady said 7) with just over two minutes left and facing 4th and goal from the Tampa Bay 8-yard line. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur opted to kick a field goal and hope his team got the ball back, which it never did.

Brady also took aim at DeChambeau using the same meme.

He didn’t really have to do that, as the meme itself mocks DeChambeau in a way. It was born this week when a video went viral that showed just how much Brooks Koepka hates DeChambeau.

Lastly, Brady acknowledged how annoyed Rodgers and DeChambeau must already be with his trash talk.

We have a feeling Rodgers won’t be bothered. He was already trolled over the field goal decision when he hosted “Jeopardy!” earlier this year, and the reigning NFL MVP took it in stride. You can see that video here.

Brady is doing his best to make sure “The Match” is just as entertaining this year as it has been in the past.

Phil Mickelson

Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson lost to Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning in “The Match” last year, but the duo will get another chance to prove their worth against new opponents in July.

Turner Sports announced on Wednesday that there will be a fourth edition of “The Match” played on July 6 at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Mont. Brady and Mickelson will face off against Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau.

“The Match” has been wildly popular since Mickelson and Tiger Woods faced one another back in 2018. The event returned last May when Mickelson and Brady faced Woods and Manning and raised over $20 million for charity during the pandemic. Then in November, Mickelson partnered with Charles Barkley to defeat Manning and Stephen Curry.

Brady has already begun talking trash ahead of the July showdown.

Golf fans were probably hoping Brooks Koepka would be involved given how much him and DeChambeau hate each other, but this year’s match should be plenty entertaining.

Brady embarrassed himself in many ways during “The Match” last year, so he should be extremely motivated to turn things around. Between that and Mickelson coming off a huge win at the PGA Championship, we like their chances against DeChambeau and Rodgers.

Bryson DeChambeau responds to Brooks Koepka not liking his spikes

Bryson DeChambeau

The rivalry between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau is once again at the forefront of the golf world, but DeChambeau doesn’t see what all the fuss is about.

Koepka was being interviewed by Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis following the second round of the PGA Championship on Friday when he was distracted by DeChambeau walking by him. The two-time major winner said he “lost my train of thought hearing that bulls—.” The assumption is that he was referring to the sound of DeChambeau’s metal spikes. You can see the video here.

DeChambeau saw the video and decided to respond. He wrote “you know you can fix spike marks now” with a laughing emoji in an Instagram comment.

Most golfers wear rubber spikes now rather than metal, as metal spikes tend damage the greens and can impact putting lines. Koepka doesn’t like DeChambeau to begin with, so that was apparently just one more thing that bothered him.

The bad blood between Koepka and DeChambeau goes back quite a while. Koepka has openly criticized DeChambeau’s playing style, and Bryson once trolled Brooks over his physique. Koepka is known for his relaxed and carefree attitude, while DeChambeau obsesses over analytics and is more of a golf junkie. That’s probably why their personalities clash.

No two players on the PGA Tour seem to dislike one another more than Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau, and the latest chapter of the rivalry was written at the PGA Championship over the weekend. What was the issue? Golf spikes, apparently.

Koepka was being interviewed by Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis following the second round of the major championship at Kiawah Island on Friday when he was distracted by DeChambeau walking by him. The two-time PGA Championship winner said he “lost my train of thought hearing that bulls—.”

The footage never made it to television, but a clip leaked and went viral on Monday. You can see it below, but beware that it contains inappropriate language.

There was initially speculation that DeChambeau said something to Koepka as he walked by, but it is more likely than Koepa was reacting to the sound of DeChambeau’s metal spikes. Most golfers wear rubber spikes now rather than metal, as metal spikes tend damage the greens and can impact putting lines.

Bryson DeChambeau had to rush back to tour event after surprisingly making cut

Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau learned an important and expensive lesson about making assumptions on Friday after an incredible odyssey that saw him leave, then return to the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte.

DeChambeau shot a three-over 74 on Friday, leaving him at two over for the tournament. Figuring he was guaranteed to miss the cut, the fifth-ranked player in the world headed back to his private jet and flew home to Dallas.

Little did he know that a windy afternoon meant those teeing off later in the day fared very poorly, and DeChambeau ended up making the cut after all. That put him in a tough spot, and he managed to secure a 2:45 a.m. flight back to Charlotte in order to make his Saturday tee time.

“It was funny,” DeChambeau said, via Daniel Rapaport of Golf Digest. “We did a lot of scrambling last night to get back. One of the scenarios was like turning right back around, but the crew couldn’t, you know, refuel and their hours were out. So we had to get a new crew, if anything, and it just didn’t work out.

“So we’re like, ‘Well, let’s just go in the morning.’ So I left at 2:45 on a flight and I got here at 6:20 a.m. Drove 30 minutes to the golf course, put on my clothes in the locker room and headed out to the putting green. I did get a workout last night, though.”

DeChambeau actually ended up shooting a three-under 68 on Saturday, putting him in position for a fairly respectable finish. It’s a finish he needs considering his travels did not come cheap.

“Way too expensive,” DeChambeau admitted. “But the thing is, I have a chance to go make a good check this week and I think that would offset it. So if I was to not come back and withdraw, lose world ranking points and all that, I had to incur the cost. It’s my fault.”

DeChambeau will probably take some ribbing for all this. Luckily, he should be used to that by now.

RBC Heritage made custom changes for Bryson DeChambeau before he withdrew

Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau has such a monstrous drive that tournament organizers now have to make custom changes to accommodate him. Unfortunately, DeChambeau will not be playing in the RBC Heritage this week after event officials did just that.

Unconfirmed reports on Twitter have claimed the RBC Heritage paid for two cranes to hold up a higher net at the driving range at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head specifically for DeChambeau. The 8th green is located behind the range, so there was apparently concern that DeChambeau would pose a danger to golfers.

DeChambeau is by far the longest hitter on the PGA Tour, but it’s possible the net was put in place for other golfers as well. He’s not the only person in the field who can demolish a golf ball. Plus, DeChambeau is no longer in the field.

After his rough weekend at the Masters, DeChambeau decided to withdraw from the RBC Heritage. No reason was given, but perhaps he needs time to recover after he was ruthlessly trolled on Twitter. If the net comes down now, we’ll know it was there just for Bryson.
