I am sure that all of the kids in Bryson's DIY frathouse are giggling themselves to sleep over this.

Frat House is exactly what I thought of watching the BDC Video.  Oh, and I also I could just imagine my wife saying "Don't dent the woodwork" as they putted around the house.

There's about as much chance of that happening as Tiger winning another major. Because of BK's personality, the only way he will win is by winning tournaments and ignoring BDC. He's playing into his hands.

All BK has do is link to Bryson's bizarre videos.

You are being brutal to both sides and I like it.

You reckon they’re making a run at the $40m player incentive money by playing all this up?

I'm sure they aren't doing that intentionally (and I know you're joking) but it is certainly the kind of thing that will add value and make people tune in rather than watching a vanilla player with a great game and an unwillingness to share his personality. 

Strange as it seems, the game probably needs this kind of stuff -  or at least can benefit from it.

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. 

To each their own. I really think BDC personality is more genuine than BKs tough guy, IDGAS act. BDC is a weird dude with a different type of mind for sure but it’s the way he is all the time IMO. They’ve both done/said things that aren’t the best look. 
 

I like both guys as golfers. 
 

I wonder if either have good friendships with other tour players?

I think BK genuinely dislikes BDC and doesn't feel like concealing it. I don't think he's cynically exploiting the "rivalry" to make money, even though it may end up working out that way. :-)

I absolutely think it’s one of the reasons.

Haha I’m just throwing it out there. On the one hand, it began before the program. On the other, they’re playing it up a bit with the back and forth. Moreover, that video was seen like 9m times in 24 hours—the same number of times as Tiger tapping in for his latest Masters. So, there’s certainly some financial incentive here. Whether it’s intentional or not, I’m not sure.

Let's see,

PGA Championship

Brooks Koepka = Tied for 2nd place

Bryson (sa) De Shambles = Tied for 38th place

No wonder BD is trying to get to BK, he's jealous of his success!

I would believe financial incentive is one of the reasons but both seem like the kind of people who don't really need that motivation to act this way. My guess is that whoever is managing their media presence is just telling them they are fine because the clicks and attention are good rather than discouraging them acting like overgrown high schoolers because it doesn't look professional. What that says about our society etc etc.

This is turning into social media theater. The more intention they get, the more followers, the more everything. It will have its shelf life and then we will be on to something else.  At some point in time, they will both be laughing at us. But in the meantime, it sure is entertaining. Pair them up and let them go at the British.

    • Shot 89 today. Drove the ball very well, lost four balls on approach shots. Two were with a wedge in my hands inside 100 yards.
    • I wouldn’t. I like to see one number on the top as I quickly pull it out of my bag to play my next shot. If you want to know the loft of your club, say for gapping purposes, then look it up. Knowing the static loft of your club is not going to help you on the course, and does nothing but force me to look at two digits instead of one to determine which club I’m pulling out of the bag. 
    • This is disconcerting as I was Pfizer'd and if given a choice, back in March, I said I'd take Moderna, but because it was easier to store, not that I had some foresight of its effectiveness relative to Pfizer. This is one study, maybe outlook will change... again. Whatever happens, being cautious regardless of whatever news comes up.

    • 80.  Two swings ultimately cost me from breaking 80.   Mainly barreling a 5 iron out of bounds on 10.  But I chipped in for eagle on 16 from just off the green.   I have not yet broken 80 on my new home course since moving here 4 years ago.  Now have 2 80s his year where one swing would have been the difference.  
    • I can't see why these manufacturers don't use a degree marking system instead of numbers. They use degrees on wedge sets. Maybe it's all about convincing the user they need new clubs more often, a marketing plan??
