I thought it was funny. Case closed. The fact that BK didn't find it funny doesn't make it any less funny. And as I already showed you--it wasn't an "asshole" move after the final round.

I'm with you on this.

I thought it was funny... AND kinda jerky. 

I actually really like both BK and BDC. I also like that they don't like each other. 

My hope is that they end up in the final pair together in a major. Personally, I think that would be a blast.

In my opinion, DC is a pompous ass and much of his behavior is calculated for his "brand". The guy probably wears the Hogan cap so he had something on which to base his logo. His act probably wears thin on a large number of guys on the Tour. I have not previously cared for BK but I approve of his honesty in saying exactly what many people are likely thinking.

Can we please see these guys paired at the U.S. Open next month?

@saevel25 and @iacasApparently and according to this article depicting BDC’s response to BK’s interview, BDC didn’t say anything to BK—the issue was just seeing BDC, hearing him talk (to his caddy?), and hearing BDC’s metal spikes. If true:

1) BDC said nothing to a guy in an active interview, and 

2) BDC merely walked by on a walkway. 

Therefore, BK is just being a drama queen. 

By the way, this isn’t the only article that has said BK was annoyed by the sound of the metal spikes. The only place I’ve seen an allegation that BDC said something directly to BK was in this thread about “gotta start it on the right line, Brooksy.”

That's what BK should have said to BDC, instead of going all bombastic.  Now that would have been funny!

Perhaps BK needs Zippo as his on-course manager???

I agree. Earlier on in their feud, BDC said BK had no abs, and BK had a great comeback showing his 4 majors saying that, yeah, he’s 2 short of a six pack. Like you said, that sort of banter, along with the fore ant escapade and others, is funny. Here, BK comes across bad. Why not keep it funny?

I'm not sure why you tagged me. I'm down for all of this, and enjoy that they're warring, regardless of the reasons.

Whether or not Bryson said anything TO Brooks, you have only BDC's word now. So, okay.

Well, I think I'd rather sit down and have a glass of wine with BDC than BK.  The former being a much more interesting person.  Though I'd like to get into BK's head from a psychological standpoint to see what is really there.

I would sit with BDC and let him know that he is an amateur with respect to physics and engineering.😜 I’d put him at a 12 HC in the science/engineering world.

Would you bring that up early or later in your conversation?  And would you let him know we discuss him on TST?  And invite him to join the forum...

Because we were discussing it yesterday, and one of the things you asked was whether he had said something to someone engaged in an interview. Just adding to the conversation.

Really? I’m sure many people have found some of their interactions pretty funny. I know I have. The abs back and forth, the fire ant deal, BK talking about BDC’s “calculations,” BDC admitting BK could “kick his ass,” BK’s Kenny Powers & steroid meme after BDC had it out with a camera guy, more of BK saying he just goes out and plays while BDC crunches numbers, and BK saying he didn’t watch the USO that BDC won are some examples of their interactions that folks have found funny.

He wouldn't last long here. I bet he gets banned in 12 months. 😛

It's not about other people. They weren't being funny with each other.

I don’t think he would have to be told that. While he majored in physics in college, he’s a professional golfer. Him talking about numbers doesn’t mean he thinks he’s some physicist or engineer. I think most of that has been overplayed in the media, not so much by himself. From what I’ve seen, him talking about numbers is just what anyone with a launch monitor does.

I’ve moved past that. Y’all were right. I’m saying it’s still funny to me.

I can just see him and Erik going at it...

Or maybe they would bond over the science commonality.

Maybe you haven't been paying attention. He talks about "physics" on his own quite a bit. CoR of flagsticks, mis-using the term "terminal velocity," etc.

That would require him to actually understand science.

Definitely seems more media/commentary driven to me. I've started to notice the Bryson "mad scientist" takes are morphing into Bryson "hits it really far" takes.

Of course, I also think he plays up the science and physics stuff for the publicity, and marketing his "brand".

Possibly, but from what I’ve observed, he makes mistakes by over analyzing, considering variables that are negligible and going down other rabbit holes that new or wannabe engineers and scientists make. He is learning though. He hasn’t pulled out humidity charts in a while.😀

    • It honestly depends on how much time you have. The past two summers I had a part-time job working three to four days a week, and I would often get out to the course just as many times, even if it’s just to practice for half an hour. I’m in college now (first PGM blog post tomorrow!), and having a maximum of three classes a day this semester I’ve been able to get out to the course every day since I’ve been here except for one. I would say if you’re trying to get better, definitely try to get out there more than once a week unless that’s all you can do.
    • I play 3 - 5 rounds a week. My wife encourages me to get out and go golfing. She says she thinks the exercise and socializing is good for me - but I think she just wants time alone with the football team. Poor sods...  😄
    • Are we talking tape or whiskey? 😀Congratulations!
    • IMO - This is the correct answer.  You want to find something more comical try to figure out what is cast and what is forged. Sometimes the whole club head is forged. Sometimes the whole head is cast. Sometimes the face is forged and welded to a cast head. They still stamp "forged" on it. Sometimes the body is forged, then a cast face is welded on it. Again, they still stamp "forged" on the clubhead.
