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.

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.

    • Day 38 (03 Aug 21) - Jumped outside around mid-day just before the afternoon rain was to start to work on the left hand in the grip.  Been way too weak with the left hand of late, seeing too many pushes right.  Worked with the PW, making sure I had a stronger grip in hand before 1/2 swings with the ball.  Know it is not what I have been doing as it was somewhat foreign feeling.    Next step - once it stops raining (forecast has that early next week)  is to take it the range and work more there where I can work on full swings. 
    • I'll let you know how it is next week
    • Regatta Bay is on my list to play next. Don't think you can go wrong with that choice.   Links Sandestin was tight. Luckily my 4-hybrid was flying straight off the tee that day. I think I hit driver on only 2 holes. 
    • I use it all the time. I have two a purple dry erase markers in my bag at all times. (Not sure why I chose purple?) It also helps with strike location and it's a lot less sloppy than spraying foot spray on your club face. I use it on range balls too. By the time the ball stops rolling the dry erase has rubbed off, so the range guys don't mind at all. 
    • Does dry erase marker transfer from the ball to the club well? I’ve drawn on my clubface with dry erase marker and I don’t recall it ending up on the ball. I’m not trying to be a smartass, I’m asking because I don’t know. I’ve always done lie angle tests with a sharpie.
