Brooks Koepka drops mic on Bryson’s trash talking

Published

on

What started last year as a call out for “overcalculations” by Brooks Koepka on Bryson DeChambeau’s slow play during a tournament press conference has now escalated to what could be considered in the social media world as a full-fledged beef.

Unfortunately, in war there are casualties, and this morning a calculating Brooks fired a single shot that has so far left Bryson at a loss for words.

But how we got to this point could possibly be the most interesting part of the story.

Bryson made it very clear after the end of the 2019 PGA Tour season he wanted to get bulked and attempt to add up to 25 pounds of muscle to help gain speed and overall strength—what could have remained a quiet private endeavor in the gym quickly became the greatest gift from the golf content gods; Bryson DeChambeau talking non-stop about his workouts and how much bigger he was getting compared to golf’s favorite “built like a linebacker” individual, Brooks Koepka.

It gets weirder: trust me.

Beyond his time in the gym, one of Bryson’s favorite pastimes is playing Fortnite and streaming to Twitch (I really don’t get it either but to each their own). A lot is said in what usually accounts to a few hours of gameplay, but thanks to Golf.com’s Luke Kerr-Dineen, we did get this little nugget from one of the most recent streams:

It was after this comment got back to Brooks that he “loaded the proverbial twitter sniper rifle and fired,” and let’s just say the replies might be just as funny as the initial tweet.

This is most likely not the end to this back and forth verbal boxing match between Brooks and Bryson, and for the sake of fun I hope it goes all 12 rounds.

    The more the childish hyena collective whines about and pokes at Patrick Reed and Brooks Koepka, the more I love them.

Titleist responds to USGA and R&A’s Distance Insights Report

Published

on

Titleist has responded to the USGA and R&A’s ‘Distance Insights Report’ saying in-part that the governing bodies are focusing too much on the men’s professional game, and are undervaluing the skill of the game’s elite.

In a written statement titled “A Perspective on the Distance Insights Report”, David Maher, CEO and president of Titleist’s parent company, Acushnet, wrote

“We believe the conclusions drawn in this Report undervalue the skill and athleticism of the game’s very best players and focus far too much on the top of the men’s professional game and project this on golf and golfers as a whole.”

Maher stressed that the current equipment regulations are sufficient in halting any significant increases going forward by the longest hitters in the game, and believes that any changes implemented that could see a local rule put in place, would be a wrong move.

“The existing equipment regulations allow professional and amateur golfers to play by the same unified set of rules, with the same equipment, and on the same courses. We believe that playing by a unified set of rules coalesces our game, is an essential part of its global understanding and appeal, and eliminates the inconsistency and inability that would come from multiple sets of equipment standards.”

The use of technology to bring younger people into the sport and aid the longevity of golfers was also highlighted by Maher who said

“Golf is bringing younger players into the game sooner and keeping older players longer than ever; professional golf is as dynamic and entertaining as it’s ever been; and the game remains a healthy challenge for all players and at all levels.”
