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.

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...

What’s wrong with robots?

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.

    • Last time out I did make my first birdie of the year at 3. Hit a PW up hill to a 125 yard flag to 6 inches. Landed it short of the stick with a low trajectory hoping to skip it back to the flag and have it check up. Couldn’t have missed making a 2 my very much. Rest of the day I did my best to Kevin Na some birdie putts. Was feeling it after that shot. At 4 I smoked a driver and then hit a gap wedge from 92 to within 5 feet. I hit what I thought was a great putt and started walking it in.... lipped out on the high side tho. At 11 I hit my 2nd way right but my 3rd within 5 feet at the par 5. Again tried to walk one in only to lip on the high side: guess I should leave the walking in of birds too the pros!
    • Commenting ,just before  taking the shot (especially negative thoughts) affect your golf swing. Man I feel bad for you. It was awful. Action with some new rules should be taken for this. 
    • Well, at least you have the par-4s down!  I had a round a few weeks ago at my home course that would have been my second-ever no sixes (first was not at my home course)... played the par-5s in -1 (all pars and a birdie), but two sixes on par-4s did me in for the challenge.  Thankfully I have the badge from two years ago or so, but it'll be nice to have a few more rounds that fit this. 
    • Day 206.  Stop me if you've heard this one before.  15 minutes after work of 6-iron shots (about a half dozen total balls this time).  Same focus:  setup, backswing pace and length.
    • Day 52: COVID-19 day 6/7 short game drills. After that, did a few minutes of rehearsals for my priority piece. Lesson coming up at the end of this week to see where I have gone wrong with this one.
