After a heckle from Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau got into an argument with a fan.
A fan heckled Bryson DeChambeau over his rivalry with Brooks Koepka, resulting in a foul-mouthed exchange.
Another day, another weird episode in Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka’s rivalry. The verbals this time, though, did not directly include Koepka. On Sunday, after DeChambeau missed a birdie putt that would have given Patrick Cantlay the win at the BMW Championship, the 27-year-old got into a confrontation with a fan who teased him about their animosity. “Great work, Brooksie!” said a spectator as DeChambeau walked back to the Caves Valley clubhouse.
The 27-year-old reacted angrily, turning around and approaching the fan before exclaiming, “You know what? Get the f**k out of here!”
DeChambeau, who had already yelled at his opponent on the back nine before losing a dramatic six-hole playoff, motioned for authorities to come over and deal with the heckler.
Perhaps the former US Open champion’s annoyance stemmed from the fact that he had missed several chances to win the tournament, including a five-foot putt on the second playoff hole.
The incident, though, will push his friendship with Koepka back into the spotlight, and the chemistry between the two, along with Cantlay, could be fascinating when the US team competes in the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in September.
Following Patrick Cantlay’s BMW Championship victory, the US Ryder Cup team has been confirmed.
At the PGA Championship in May, video emerged of Koepka, 31, rolling his eyes and muttering as De Chambeau walked behind him.
Soon later, when it was announced that Phil Mickelson would team up with Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady to compete in a charity golf event against DeChambeau and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Koepka sarcastically tweeted his condolences to Rodgers.
“It’s good to not have to pay rent in your head!” DeChambeau responded with a yes.
Earlier this year, several PGA Tour players, including Koepka, chastised DeChambeau for his sluggish play. DeChambeau told Koepka’s caddie to inform the player to make his slow play criticisms “to my face” during a disagreement.
