‘I think highly of him’: Bryson discusses Brooks and hecklers in candid interview

Published

on

On Wednesday, Bryson DeChambeau sat down with Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis for an interview that saw the 27-year-old discuss Brooks Koepka, heckling fans, and the Ryder Cup.

Bryson has been in the midst of a feud with Brooks Koepka all summer, but perhaps surprisingly, the Californian was very complimentary towards his so-called foe during the chat.

During the interview, Bryson revealed that he thinks very highly of Koepka and is more than willing to come together for the sake of Team USA at next month’s Ryder Cup.

“Personally, I am 100% willing to do that (come together for the team). There’s no issue in regards to that. I think highly of him (Brooks).

He’s done a lot for the sport. I think he’s a very interesting character that can be an amazing asset to the team. For me, I know I can be an amazing asset to the team. If we all can focus on being the best we can possibly be, we’ll win.”

The golf scientist also opened up on fan heckling, where he reiterated that he has no issue with Koepka and that spectators are going to “say what they are going to say”, but that everyone has their “tipping point”, and that he has never tried to add fire to the flames.

“Everyone thinks that I have an issue with him (Brooks). I don’t. At the end of the say, the people that are saying things in the crowd are going to say what they are going to say because they have the right to do so.

It’s been going on for months now (Brooksy taunts), and everyone has their own limits and their own tipping points. I think I’ve done a pretty good job of going ‘You know what? I’m going to let that fuel me in a positive way.’ And that’s the way I look at it.”

Two star names reportedly blanked Jon Rahm all week at the Masters

Published

on

While speaking with Hugo Costa of Golf Channel Latin America, Jon Rahm indicated that he wasn’t too well recieved by some PGA Tour players at The Masters.

“Some did. I expected it. And then, there was someone else who I expected to be a little tougher… and one of them hugged me. I think that, among all the relationships I have, it has been everything what I expected. My friends are still my friends. And then someone, with whom I was very cordial and had a positive relationship (in quotes), has not even looked at me”.

“If someone changes their opinion of me, it is more their problem than mine. I am not worried”.

According to Costa, Patrick Cantlay and Max Homa were the two who were hostile towards Rahm

“Important players with whom Jon Rahm had a good relationship, such as Patrick Cantlay or Max Homa, could have had gestures of contempt towards the Spaniard in this Masters.”

Rahm will tee it up next at LIV Adelaide in a few weeks.

Report: Greg Norman spotted following a surprise grouping on Thursday at the Masters

Published

on

Greg Norman is at this week’s Masters tournament but found himself in a situation where he had to buy himself a ticket to enter the grounds.

Speaking to the Washington Post, Norman explained why he was at Augusta National:

“I’m here because we have 13 players that won 10 Masters between them. So I’m here just to support them, do the best I can to show them, ‘Hey, you know, the boss is here rooting for you.’ ”

So who was Norman following during the opening round of this year’s Masters? Well the answer may surprise you.

Per Sports Illustrated’s Bob Harig, Norman was spotted following the LIV-less grouping of Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele.

We’ll find out a little later today whether Norman will make his third appearance in as many days at this year’s opening major.

Collin Morikawa makes surprising late putter switch at Masters

Published

on

Collin Morikawa has had plenty of success with a blade in his hands over the course of his young career, but after a lean spell on the greens lately, it appears that the 27-year-old is ready to try something new.

The California-native began the year with his TaylorMade TP Soto before switching to a Logan Olson proto last month. Now at this week’s Masters, Morikawa has been spotted with a Spider Tour X, the same flatstick that Scottie Scheffler will be using at Augusta.

The move would represent a big change, but it has been a very frustrating year on the greens for Morikawa, who will hope the TaylorMade mallet can offer him a similar upturn in fortune to that of Scheffler. In 2024, Morikawa ranks 164th for Strokes Gained: Putting, and 157th for Total Putting.

We’ll keep an eye whether Morikawa puts the mallet into action on day one of the Masters.
