It didn’t take much for golf star Brooks Koepka to get knocked down in the presence of nemesis Bryson DeChambeau. (Watch the video, using the NSFW language, below.)
In interview footage for the Golf Channel that found its way onto social media on Monday, Koepka was describing his PGA Championship play last week when DeChambeau walked past him.
DeChambeau appeared to say something to another person as his spikes grated against the ground, prompting Koepka to close his eyes contemptuously. “Fuck I lost – lost my train of thought, yeah, hearing that bullshit,” he told interviewer Todd Lewis. “Fucking Christ.”
Their quarrel has been brewing for a while. Among the shots fired: Koepka publicly criticized DeChambeau’s slow play. DeChambeau criticized Koepka for his lack of abdominal definition in ESPN’s Body Issue, to which Koepka responded with a nice dig using his trophies as props. Koepka also joked about DeChambeau using steroids after slamming a cameraman.
DeChambeau, who gained volume to strengthen his long game, said Koepka had gone “too far” by giving him odds.
DeChambeau, now ranked fourth in the world, won the US Open in September. He finished 38th in the PGA.
Seventh-ranked Koepka won four majors and finished second in a failed attempt to win his third PGA.
It won’t be the last time their paths cross.
