Bryson on ‘Brooksy’ shouts: ‘I love it, I think it’s hilarious’

Published

Bryson DeChambeau will begin the defence of his U.S. Open title tomorrow at Torrey Pines amid an ongoing feud with Brooks Koepka.

The 27-year-old began receiving the heckling shouts of “Brooksy” at the Memorial where it was reported that fans participating in the shouts were being removed from the course by security.

At Torrey Pines this week, Bryson has been discussing the “Brooksy” shouts as well as the fans involved, as the rivalry between the two shows no signs of cooling off.

“I’m always going to be trying to play my game and not really worry too much about what other people are doing. I think there are just times where, if it gets outside the scope of just integrity and honour, yeah, that can get a little interesting.

At the same point in time, all of it’s been good fun. It’s been fun. Shoot, to be honest, people saying Brooksy’s name out there, I love it. I think it’s hilarious.”

The pair have been kept apart for the opening two rounds of the event, much to the disappointment of many fans. However, Bryson is already thinking ahead to the weekend, where a blockbuster pairing could grab plenty of new eyeballs.

“There’s a point where it’s great banter,. I personally love it. I think that, as time goes on, I hope on the weekend we can play against each other and compete. I think it would be fun and would be great for the game.”

Rickie Fowler is the next in line to aim subtle dig at Bryson

Published

on

Following an impressive 64 at 3M Open to hold a share of the 1st round lead, Rickie Fowler joined the many PGA Tour pros to poke fun at Bryson DeChambeau for his controversial comments at last week’s Open.

DeChambeau infamously blasted his Cobra driver, saying “it sucks,” which prompted Cobra rep, Ben Schomin, to respond, “It’s really painful when he says something that stupid.”

Discussing his Thursday round with the media, Fowler commented on how pleased he was with his efforts off the tee.

“That was something that was kind of holding me back from making birdies, moving forward last week. I drove it very poorly Friday and Saturday. It was not my driver’s fault. Had to.”

Who can blame Fowler for getting in on the action, especially since his game seems to be trending in the right direction.

The five-time PGA Tour winner is in search of his first victory since the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open. He’s off to an awfully strong start.

Collin Morikawa had to deal with a very unexpected distraction on his final hole at the Open

Published

on

Golf fans may remember Collin Morikawa stepping away from the tee on the 18th hole at last week’s Open Championship.

On first thought, it seemed like the 24-year old just needed a moment to recalibrate. Yet Morikawa revealed in an interview with Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take podcast that he stepped away for… another reason.

“Some spectator, at some point in the day, snuck a little old school microphone, like a recording. Threw it underneath one of the marshals around there and started playing these farting noises right as I was about to swing,” Morikawa disclosed.

In typical Morikawa fashion, the two-time major champion was unfazed, and he proceeded to stripe his tee shot down the right-center of the fairway en route to a routine par to win the Open over Jordan Spieth by two strokes.

Morikawa can next be seen representing the United States in the Olympics, as he looks to become the first golfer ever with two major wins and an Olympic Gold Medal.

Nelly Korda spends her off time just like us

Published

Newly minted number one golfer in the world, Nelly Korda, is in action this week at the Amundi Evian Championship in France, her first major under that title.

With a hectic schedule of the Evian, the Olympics, AIG Women’s Open and Solheim Cup down the stretch, Korda stressed the importance of de-compressing and taking her mind off golf when she is not in the heat of the battle.

Video games wouldn’t have been our first guess, but Korda reveled on media day that they are an essential aspect of her off the course routine. “Right now, Call of Duty and Modern Warfare,” Korda mentioned when asked what games she plays. “But when I was a kid, I really liked card games, so I may download one of those. Complete nerd coming out of me right now.”

No judgement here. Korda has displayed an admirable level of comfortability on the biggest stage. “You kind of need a way to escape sometimes, so I was like hmm, may as well try it out.”

Not that we needed one, but the best female golfer in the world just provided a sound justification of why video games aren’t half bad.
