The sight of Bryson DeChambeau is enough to ruin Brooks Koepka’s day.
The two top American golfers have a long-running feud that was highlighted again in a leaked interview from last week’s PGA Championship. In the Golf Channel standup, Koepka is answering questions about the conditions at Kiawah Island when DeChambeau walks behind him.
“I didn’t putt well but I don’t think any of the guys are going to putt well with this wind,” Koepka said. “It’s very tough, I don’t know what other guys said. I just find it difficult to read. Just sometimes…”
At this point DeChambeau walks in the shot and it appears he might be saying, “Just gotta start it on the right line,” though the audio is not perfectly clear.
Whatever is muttered upsets Koepka greatly.
“Christ. I f—kin lost my train of thought hearing that bulls—t. F—kin Christ,” Koepka said before they begin re-shooting the question.
Koepka’s disdain was first noted in 2019 when he publicly ripped DeChambeau for his slow play on the course. A year later, DeChambeau mocked Koepka because “he didn’t have any abs” when appearing in ESPN’s Body Issue.
After DeChambeau muscled up during the pandemic last year and focused his obsession on swing speed and distance, he joined Koepka as one of the top players in the sport.
Later, when DeChambeau got into a spat with a CBS cameraman, Koepka mocked him with a Kenny Powers tweet that suggested he was on steroids.
“There are times where it’s like, ‘O.K., dude, it’s too far,’” DeChambeau told Sports Illustrated in October. “I’ve gone up to him a couple of times and tried to talk to him. And there have been times where, you know, I was gonna go talk to him when he said something, and I’m just like, ‘You know, it’s not even worth it. It’s not even worth my time to try and create something.’”
Koepka finished tied for second at the PGA Championship, while DeChambeau finished tied for 38th after he struggled with a final round 77.
