‘Get it out of my face, man!’ – Brooks Koepka snatches phone from fan during tense exchange

Published

on

At last week’s WGC Match Play, Brooks Koepka was recorded shutting down some aggressive autograph hunters by channelling a line from one of his favorite movies Tin Cup.

The video showed Koepka telling the adult autograph hunters: “I got to work. I don’t come to your job asking for your s***, do I? I don’t think so!” which is believed to be a variation on the line from the golf movie, which was: “I’m working here. This is my office. Do I come to your office and ask you for your autograph? I don’t think so!”

While that exchange seemed good-natured with a relaxed and smiling Koepka, another video has since emerged from the event that shows the 4-time major champ very aggravated with a fan at the tournament.

In the video obtained by TMZ, the 31-year-old appeared less than impressed when after just beating Jon Rahm, a fan attempted to record and speak with him while Brooks was with his partner Jena Sims.

The fan opened by asking, “Brooks, what do you say to beating Rahm?”

This was met with an agitated Koepka responding by snatching the phone out of the fans’ hand before repeatedly telling him, “Get it out of my face, man!” while a tournament official tells the spectator to leave him alone. 

Check out the video below.

Per TMZ, Koepka took the phone for a moment before the golfer’s manager returned it to the fan.

    Adult autograph seekers are the scum of the earth. And Brooks is in the wrong profession for his demeanor. He should be repossessing cars.

    Almost every comment is from a brooks hater.
    What a sad, infantile bunch you all are.

    Try to be original, you predictable clowns.

    Remember watching the warmup at the Canadian Open a few years back.
    There was DJhitting balls and chatting back and forth with his brother…
    A few spots away was Brooks with his entourage, must have been six or eight people watching him hit while buzzing back and forth.
    He just had this air about him and I thought what a douche this guy is.

    I don’t see how anyone thinks it’s OK to just jam a phone in someone’s face without their permission and think it’s ok. I don’t blame Koepka, I’d probably have done the same thing.

      Of course it makes him look bad. What else is TMZ good for? It’s bad enough these guys get a mic shoved in their faces by reputable reporters every time they turn around, but for some sleazebag to shove his cell phone in his face, good on you Brooks.

    A pro does not have an obligation to interact with anyone in the gallery, especially while ‘WORKING’ which is their lively hood. With that being said, it helps the individual players’reputation and following to try and be pleasant with their fans- ‘BUT NOT DURING THE MATCH’. As an altenate suggestion, maybe they could schedule a limited time frame for the patrons to get autographs and possibly an opportunity to express their gratitude briefly.
    This could be optional for a player to volunteer a few minutes of their time after the tournament and not something that would be mandatory….just a thought.

    Just one more reason why I don’t like this guy.

    Two things can be true at the same time: fans are getting more obnoxious and invasive and Brooks is a dick.

Tour legend reveals $300+ million offer from the mysterious World’s Affluent Golf League

Published

on

The current turmoil between the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and the LIV Golf Series has led to some genuine bite-back from players such as Rory McIlroy, but also some amusing twists to the plot.

We reported yesterday on Max Homa’s take on the LIV/player negotiations and four-time PGA Tour winner, and renowned joker, Tim Herron, has joined in the fun.

In a tweet posted on Wednesday, the 52-year-old posted a ‘letter’ from the Government of Estovakia, offering an incentive package to join the WAGL – the World’s Affluent Golf League!

The ‘tour’ is offering all its players “5” diameter cups” and permission “to carry 28 clubs.”

Herron – or ‘Lumpy’ as he is better known – has also been offered, apart from a hefty sum of money (mix of crypto and cash), a “120 to 160-ft yacht” – importantly ‘blue or grey’; a “Tyrannosaurus Rex bone”; one 32″ bust of “yourself”, and “4 cases of Orbit chewing gum.”

Surely Lumpy, who is winless since the Colonial in 2006, and who has yet to win on the Champions Tour in two years, will not resist such an offer!

Did The Simpsons predict Matt Fitzpatrick’s major US Open moment?

Published

on

US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick has been on something of a high ever since lifting the trophy last Sunday.

With his social media full of photos of him holding the trophy, eating meals with the trophy and probably sleeping with the trophy, he certainly wasn’t fibbing when he said that, “Words really can’t describe the feeling of winning a major, it’s 1000x better than I ever thought it would be.”

Perhaps winning his first major, and subsequently his first PGA Tour event, at The Country Club, some nine years after being crowned US Amateur at the same course, was written in the stars, or maybe a cartoon family had more to do with it.

In a tweet yesterday, the now world number 10, compared his celebration on the 15h hole to that of Marge Simpson, the long-suffering wife of Homer, in the award-winning animated series, commenting, “The Simpsons always knows….”

Of course, many have credited the satirical series with predicting several events over the 33 years of the Simpson’s existence, including the rise of Donald Trump to President and the winner of the Super Bowl in 1992, and for the next two years in succession.

Either way, by defeating world number one Scottie Scheffler, perennial major contender Will Zalatoris and 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama, and with his affable demeanour, Fitz launched himself into near-legend status on a day he said, ” is a moment I could only dream of.”

LIV Pro has surprising reaction to sketch video roasting Saudi rebel stars

Published

on

Conor Moore, also known as @ConorSketches on Twitter has become well known for his excellent impressions of professional golfers. Most recently, he posted a sketch poking fun at the golfers who have joined the controversial LIV Golf series.

The scene depicts Brooks Koepka being introduced by Ian Poulter to the rest of the LIV Golf defectors.

Graeme McDowell, who’s also a LIV defector, saw the sketch on Twitter and had a surprising reaction. Although the sketch didn’t paint he and others in the best light, he complimented the sketch.

It’s good to see that McDowell has maintained his signature sense of humor through all of the criticism he’s faced in recent months.
