The latest chapter in the Bryson DeChambeau-Brooks Koepka feud isn’t so bitter.
While Koepka awaited the start of his interview with Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis, DeChambeau walked past in the background. Seeing Koepka and Lewis together, DeChambeau jumped in the air and waved his arms around as he walked by.
“People were thinking that I was doing something at the PGA Championship,” DeChambeau said Thursday at the U.S. Open. “I wasn’t doing anything. (Today) I saw the opportunity and I just had fun with it.”
The long-standing DeChambeau-Koepka saga re-ignited at last month’s PGA Championship. In a leaked viral interview, DeChambeau mocked Koepka’s answer in a Golf Channel standup. A visibly frustrated Koepka responded by calling “bulls–t” on DeChambeau’s interruption.
The feud began back in 2019, when Koepka ripped DeChambeau for his slow play on the course. Last year, DeChambeau jabbed back, ridiculing Koepka’s lack of abs in his appearance in ESPN Magazine’s Body Issue.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Koepka offered a blunt assessment of his current relationship with DeChambeau.
“I wouldn’t even characterize it as a conflict,” he said. “We don’t like each other.”
Through Thursday, Koepka has had the upper-hand at Torrey Pine, finishing first round play with a 2-under 69. DeChambeau posted a a 2-over 73.
