but that Bryson was “really loud” when he walked by him. 

Whether orally spoken or with loud spike stomps as he walked by, Bryson was trying to mess with Brooks.

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.

Did you even listen to BK’s comments? He indicated that BD didn’t do anything to bother him other than just being a bit loud as BD initially started walking outside. However, BK even admitted that as BD walked behind him, at least BD talked a little more quietly. Given all the facts and circumstances here, it doesn’t seem like BD was trying to mess with him at all. BK just doesn’t like BD.

That's pretty much what my comment said, that he may not have said anything but purposely clopped by him, imo.

Who to believe? Did the USGA reach out or is Faxon trying to keep the flame alive? Either way, I’m hoping we see them play together soon. It would be awesome to see them tied for the lead on Sunday in the same group. What a pressure cooker that would be.

Just my opinion but In this case I am thinking they did NOT reach out to Bryson.  If they had reached out to Bryson they would also have reached out to Brooks.  There is no way they would have called only one of the two players.  Also, Bryson and his team are smart enough to know that if they "Declined" it may have made them look bad.  If I were in his shoes I would have accepted and then put Brooks in the position of saying "No" to make him look like the petty person.

Wouldn't it be a bit hokey to put Dechambeau and Koepka in a pairing for the first two days? 

It's the sort of thing that ought to happen because they are neck-and-neck on the weekend, not something just to make a circus out of the opening rounds.

I think I agree. So, Faxon stirring the pot?

I disagree. This kind of thing generates buzz and excitement for golf. It has the potential to get people to watch who otherwise might not have watched. Especially on a Thursday or Friday afternoon. 

IMO there are plenty of more hokey things that are done in professional golf on a regular basis than pairing 2 guys together who don't like each other and have formed somewhat of a rivalry.

It's supposed to be an entertainment product after all. I'd be willing to bet that more people would be entertained by the Thursday/Friday rounds had Bryson and Brooks been paired together vs them being in different groups.

Gawd.... I'll watch ANYONE play in preference to reading and hearing that revolting term "reaching out" one more time.

I agree with you up to a point. There is no doubt more eyes would be on the TV.

To me there would be a cheapness to making this pairing the very first time the opportunity presents itself.  It's just a bit too much of a lowest common denominator move for my liking.

Just curious. What examples would you consider more hokey?

Do you prefer that they "touch base" with Bryson instead?🤣 You are up very early!

The stuff between them is well over a year old, back to Brooks calling Bryson out for slow play in 2019, then the back and forth about abs and 6 packs in Jan of 2020. This definitely isn't the first time the opportunity has presented itself with these two.

Something like making the players wear pants for tournament rounds even though it'd be like 95 degrees is one that quickly comes to mind.

How the tour seemingly always wants to shy away from controversy, doesn't disclose fine amounts or disciplinary actions, etc. Basically things that other sports seem to lean into (to an extent) which help generate discussion and buzz around specific players in those sports. Golf (and mainly the PGA tour) seem to do very little of trying to expand their reach and get non-golf people to watch the sport.

I'm aware they haven't liked each other, but clearly it only became a big deal after the Koepka video went viral.

    • Might be slow, but I'm sorta liking these guys...
    • Slow play is not keeping up with the group in front, unless its a group of really fast players.   The question is how to remedy it.  I play with guys who shoot high 70’s low 80’s whose pre-shot routines are intermidable.  In addition they are elderly and just move slow.  So as the young-un in the group I rush, especially on the green.  They play from the correct tees, it just takes them forever to go thru their routine.   Yesterday I played as a single.  Arrived at the course at 3 and was told to be off before 5 due to league play. I finished in 92 mins and played thru two other groups.  My goal is to not 3 putt and no 7’s on the card.  Shot 85. High scores does not automatically mean slow play.  
    • Day 63, July 27, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going. Rinse, Repeat, keep working on it kind of deal. I’m having small successes with the 3/4 swing so something must be working.
    • Day 153.  Before grocery shopping, I stopped at a putting green and worked for half an hour on 3' and 30' putts.  The end of the 3' practice included taking 17 shots to finish all 12 for my clock drill (not great, but not as bad as a month ago) and the 30' finished with my final six putts from 30' (due to this green, they weren't significantly different on the clockface, so I'm still getting a similar read, but I know better than to assume it.  And of course, I had to hit them the right speed) with a total of 11 strokes (five 2-putts and I also sank one). After lunch and before gym, I did the quarantine days 9 (again, with feedback from yesterday) + 10 (which took a while to get right... I'm not even sure I got it right, video to show up later today). Addendum:  I haven't figured out my trigger for the day 10 practice plan.  That's going to take me a bit more thought
    • MD: 89 (Black/Orange combo tees): 89. Up and down sandy on 17th was nice. One of my better sand shots of the week.  SV: 98 (Black tees).. Tough day. Bit too much of a course for me from black tees. Drive on 18 uphill was a bright spot that stood out though.  SV: 89 (Orange tees).. phew.. much better. 2nd shot on 16 uphill from 198 out over bunker with a borrowed 3 iron (thanks @DeadMan.. :-)) that dropped and stopped within a two feet for a kick-in might be the shot of the week for me.  LL: 92, 92 back-to-back on the same day. Tried my darndest hard to break 90 but couldn't twice. Best shot 8 iron on 7th par 3 from 155 for a bird.  Lac La Bell: 107. Forgettable day score-wise except for holes 15-16 where I finally hit couple of good drives.
