We’ve seen it happen before, where someone roots against a player yelling land in a trap or something and they get tossed.

It’s not the same thing at all.

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 think Bryson brings it on himself with his sort of smart alec involvement in the situation. That photobomb was very childish in my opinion. I I think many have lost some respect for Bryson. People shouldn't be heckling the players like that although.

There was no photobomb. Bryson walked along a path which happened to be behind Koepka.

Bryson is not stupid, he knew exactly what he was doing. He knew that just his presence in his photobomb would be enough to anger b k. It was well orchestrated by Bryson, as childish as it was.

Whats the point of them to yell such things in the middle of the round when he clearly doesn’t like it?

It's not the same thing to directly wish someone plays poorly as it is to say things hoping to annoy them into playing poorly. One is not at all in the spirit of friendly competition and the other is fine up to a certain limit. Fans do have a tendency to take it past that limit of course.

And @saevel25, fair enough. I don’t expect people to get along with or like everyone. That’s fine. It just seemed to me like BK is just too easily annoyed and irritable. Like he was agitated at BDC. BK is far from the MJ and Tiger one liners that we came to love. BK just looks grumpy and unlikeable as opposed to a guy who just lets his clubs talk. 

Bryson is the most irritating twat on tour, so I'm all in with Team Brooksy.

Warned for what? It’s ridiculous.

Surely not something that requires police involvement.

You’re asking the wrong guy. I don’t know why people yell anything right after the ball is hit. My point is, “Brooksy” and “get in the water” are not the same.

And if you think Bryson or any other tour  player should be able to eject a fan just for saying something they don’t like, I heartily disagree with you.

Fair enough, we’ll disagree then.

These guys are grown men. The players. Vulgar yells makes a point. But to eject a patron for yelling ‘Brooksy’ is inarguably asinine.

For me it comes down to this, intent and how he takes it. Some people are good spirited about it, some people actually want to screw with him. If he takes it personally enough that it effects him, do something. Don’t let it grow.

this sort of heckling is fine. The guy obviously sounds like he’s just messing around. Whatever. 

With Bryson, maybe it’s getting bad for him, idk. I’m sure he’s been heckled plenty before, so maybe there’s more to it this time. I’m just saying there is a line, maybe some people went past it.

He should do something - get a thicker skin.

Hilarious.  Perfect response.

Who cares if he likes it?  As long as they aren't doing it during his swing, get over it.  "Teacher, those people are saying the name of someone I don't like, make them stop".

Bryson could use a history lesson from guys like Garcia and Montgomery, who let fans get under their skin which resulted in them being heckled even more.

Bryson doesn't seem to be mentally strong, to let this affect him.  I'm old enough to remember the crap Arnie's Army put Nicklaus through during their US Open play-off.  I can't find it now, but I recall reading that when Jack was asked about it afterwards he claimed he hadn't been aware of the abuse being hurled at him because he was in his competitive state of mind, shutting everything out.  Bryson could take a lesson.

Point Koepka. That is using your endorsement partner wisely. Ha ha. Too funny.

This would be different because I’m not for bullying kids. Teachers should address such behavior used to bully another child. Bryson is hardly a school-aged, impressionable child. He’s a professional athlete and public figure, and like you said, at least they’re not doing it during his swing—that would be wrong in my book.

De-sham-beau acts like he is totally innocent of of what's been going on.

    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.

    • Day 584 - August 3, 2021 Hit fifteen or twenty balls at Chautauqua between lessons. Wrists while I turn, 1/2 swing (or 3/4). Whatever it is, it's "less." Hit some good ones.
