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.

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.

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...

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.

    • Has anyone successfully got a round off of a GG Live system via computer in the past few days?  I'm wondering if Wednesday's failure was related to some sites disappearing briefly from the internet (although I was able to access the GG site).   Right now, mine is just recharging so I can use it on Sunday.  Would be nice to get the stats for today.
    • Day 149.  I played 18 today with two friends.  A very narrow course (the "Babe" course in Industry Hills), I had three lost balls that I don't think would have left the playing area if I had hit them at my home course.   I should have lost a fourth but sadly found it (my recovery was sufficiently difficult, and I tried playing high percentage shots, too, that I hit my fourth from closer to the tee than my provisional landed).  I still shot a 93 and hit many greens with full swings, even if they weren't all for in-regulation (but I still had 6 GIR).   Note to self:  play narrow courses a bit more, and get better at these tee shots. Also I feel I putted well but I'm not going to gamble trying to get the stats off the GG.
    • That's Ok, but not a very ambitious goal at all. It should be pretty straightforward to get within 10%. 30 ft is a typical distance for a first putt (even for the pros), and you should hardly ever 3-putt those, so the key is to be within 3 ft (or 10%). Put it another way, when you have a cross-country (or cross green) putt of 90 ft, a decent result is to be around 6ft, or 9ft if you want, so 10%.  20% puts you. way too far out. To the OP, I was the worst putter in the world when I started. It took me almost 4 years of playing 9 holes after work on Fridays to get my first par, because I was on very few greens (1 or maybe 2 at most per 9), but because I was 3-putting from everywhere. I fixed this by practicing dialing in the speed correctly. And that also means hitting the ball reliably with the center of the face. Then hone yours skills on reading greens, but the most important part remains controlling the speed. FWIW, some 15 years after I made that first par, putting is the strength of my game and I only 3-putt about 2% of the holes according to my stats (in GolfPad), or about 1 hole every 3 rounds, on average.  You too can do it: it's much easier than drastically improving one's long game!
    • What constitutes slow play for me is when I'm on a hot course and not playing so well, and the group in front will never be invited to play speed golf in the Olympics.  My mind begins to wander to a beach, a cold gin & tonic and my shady side patio.
