I think it might be affecting their golf.

BK is playing pretty good though. I wouldn't be surprised if he's a factor this week. I'd say BDC will be on a plane Friday night.

Of the two I would have to say Brooks is far less affected by the "feud" and more likely to use any perceived slight as fuel.  He has done it before by using a chip on his shoulder to win majors.  Remember reading a recent article where he said getting excited for regular events was very difficult, but majors was where the desire kicked in

I agree. BK almost feeds off drama to propel him to play well. Almost "like Mike"-like. Creating those rivalries in his head or something to fuel him type deal.

Was there any drama going on before any of his previous majors? I don't remember him saying anything like he's being doubted to win. Most of the time they talked about him being a favorite. I am not sure I would go this far, but I wouldn't doubt he does it.

I dunno.

Drama doesn't have to be out in the open. As I mentioned above, he could've found anything or created it in his head to psyche himself up. Kind of like how I naturally hit the ball harder, hit a punching bag harder, or explode through some lifts better when I think of certain people.

That's all I'm saying really. A guy like him who went and ground it out on the Euro Tour before coming over here and balling in majors has to have something going on in that head of his. Sure, he's loaded with talent, too.

Again, drama doesn't have to be real, nor does it have to be public knowledge either.

Watch that Michael Jordan video on Netflix recently and you will see how he took slights that nobody else noticed and internalised it.  I guess Brooks does something similar.  It would probably just need some article saying that Brooks isn't the favourite to win a major and that would be the drive he needed for example.

Worst thing is letting someone live in your head rent free

We don't know, he may be charging him rent.  Or, preparing to evict him.

More drama from Bryson?

“It’s just really, really painful when Bryson says something that stupid,” Ben Schomin, Cobra’s tour operations manager, told USA Today.

“He has never really been happy, ever. It’s like an eight-year-old that gets mad at you. They might fly off the handle and say, ‘I hate you.’ But then you go: ‘Whoa, no you don’t.’

“We know as adults that they really don’t mean that and I know that if I got Bryson cornered right now and said, ‘What the hell did you say that for?’ he would say that he was mad. He didn’t really mean to say it that harshly. He knows how much everyone bends over backwards for him, but it’s still not cool.”

You should’ve provided some context here. These comments came after BDC said his driver sucked. These comments do not address the BK-BDC feud.

Hmm... My opinion of Bryson has gone down more then. 

I actually thought BDC meant it as not hitting the driver well. Not directly meaning the club sucks. But I can see how the Cobra guys took it as well.

Bryson DeChambeau has been accused of “acting like an eight-year-old” by his own equipment-makers...

Just the clarification of BDC and Cobra driver comment….

Yeah. That's not a real good look for ole Bryson.

At least the way they were talking about that course on the TV last night, it isn't a massive surprise that Bryson The Bomber might struggle a bit.

In future news. Keopka just signed a massive new contract with Cobra. His only stipulation. Fire Bryson. Ha ha. 

That's absurd.  All he did was buy Cobra some beer. :cobra: :beer:

    • DAY 6: practiced tempo with Orange Whip Trainer (10 min).
    • I’ll join this foursome - my timing is flexible and this will allow me to drive back east after the lesson on Saturday. Will join you for dinner on Friday as well. My wife / sometime caddy might also join. Thanks for arranging @StuM!
    • Why did the employer require a test that’s not even recommended by the CDC? Not really ball busting but this is part of a problem we’re facing way too often as physicians. Employers, schools, all making up their own protocols without knowing what they’re talking about. I get your ‘wanting to know’ but know what? Like you said, it’s just a number that means nothing at this time. It’s also possible that insurance wouldn’t cover it as it’s not medically necessary.
    • Lab Corp has a "Semi-Quantitative" test that I'm considering taking.  I'm a leukemia survivor, had a bone marrow transplant, I have GVHD, and I'm on immune suppression medication (tacrolimus, sirolimus, prednisone).  Some of my Dr.'s patients in the same situation as me got no response from the vaccine I took the qualitative test and I have antibodies, but I have no idea how protected I am.  I recently got the Moderna booster. The Lab Corp Semi-Quantitative test gives no indication of what is a good response.  It's just a number.  I don't see the point of taking the test if there is no way to interpret the number.  Still I want to take it, I can at least compare it to the number my neighbor got (his employer required the test).
    • I’m surprised you held onto them for 20 years. They would have ended up lost of in the trash long ago if mine.
