Nope, the psuedo feud is the topic. Everyone will see the nothingness of it when they are paired together. Just the same, BD acts very childish. Imagine the interest generated for the PGA because of it. 

Yeah right BK is acting so mature here.

So Bryson ribs BK by saying he’s living rent free in BK’s head….then he whines like a baby and has spectators removed for yelling ‘Brooksy’? What a douche.

That seems like a measure of how boring golf is when Tiger is not around.

Kinda. Tiger was in a sort of way a villain, though, as well.

Well it does take two to tango, but I haven't seen Brooks photobombing Bryson.

No he's just offering free cases of beer to fans who got kicked out of a tournament for yelling things at Bryson. That's worse than a photobomb IMO.

If only Bryson's ball would have come to rest next to a box of Ultras!

But Bryson doesn't offer the fans anything! How cheap can he be?

I'm not sure the Tour wants this kind of attention. Mabye they think any attention is good attention, but I don't know.

Then they shouldn't have dangled the $40M carrot in front of the players.

But if you're the PGA tour, why wouldn't you want this kind of attention? Like I've said before, it expands your audience. Keeps non-golfers talking about golf throughout the week. There are far more positives than negatives out of this for the PGA tour.

Stella Artois should use that image in their advertising.  And put their name on Bryson's cap.

If the PGA Tour didn’t want this kind of attention I’m sure they’d find a way to shut it down behind closed doors.

I’m certain this is exactly what they want. They’re trying to reach a broader audience and part of that is showing the players aren’t just stuffy robots.

But they're two buff guys... makes me think they want to get into fisticuffs or the MMA thing.  Give 'em a ring, a referee and get it over with...

I dunno. Watching two meat heads who probably have no idea how to fight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’d rather see them play some serious golf and really give the tour a show.

I would have to agree, as agile and strong as they are with a game of golf, they probably would look pathetic in a fighting ring. If and when they get their dup together that will be a good show. Although I think the media has hyped it beyond what it really is and would just be a competitive round of golf like most others.

"We agreed on something and he went back on it," Koepka said. "I don't have much respect for that."


 

Quote

I thought it was just interesting when he walked up to my caddie and told Ricky (Elliott) that if I had something to say, to say it to his face,” Koepka said. “I thought that was kind of odd, when you don’t walk up to my face, and say it to my caddie.”

He would seem to be referring to a conversation the two had during the 2019 Northern Trust at Liberty National. That came after Koepka had publicly called out slow players in an appearance on the Golf Monthly podcast. “I just don’t understand how it takes a minute and 20 seconds to hit a golf ball,” Koepka said. “It’s not that hard.” He didn’t call out DeChambeau by name, but it was widely seen as a reference to a European Tour video that showed DeChambeau taking an exorbitant amount of time to play a wedge shot. At Liberty, DeChambeau and Koepka spoke before their final rounds, and DeChambeau told reporters that he “just wanted to clear the air.”

On Wednesday at the Travelers, Koepka also suggested he and DeChambeau had come to some sort of agreement during that conversation two years ago.

“And when we had that conversation, we agreed on something and he went back on it,” Koepka said Wednesday. “So, if you’re gonna go back on your word, I don’t have much respect for that.”

It would be worse if he told them he would do that ahead of time, but that's not what happened.  The fact remains that unless someone was yelling DURING the swing no one should have been kicked out in the first place.

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
