Bryson DeChambeau reacts to boos from Brooks Koepka fans at the US Open.
The growing conflict between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka has divided golf fans.
Bryson DeChambeau has been subjected to a barrage of jeers and boos at the US Open this week, with some spectators voicing their support for Brooks Koepka. The animosity between DeChambeau and Koepka has enthralled golf fans over the last year, with evidence that the American duo does not get along.
In the past, the two have made fun of each other on social media, and Koepka has expressed his displeasure with DeChambeau for being a sluggish player on the course.
Despite the fact that the two of them have had numerous incidents, they have yet to be partnered together.
That hasn’t stopped golf fans from getting involved in recent months, as the PGA Tour has become more open to spectators.
At the PGA Championship, the feud between Koepka and DeChambeau was resurrected.
When DeChambeau walked in the background while the four-time major champion was being questioned, Koepka had just played his final round and had just lost to Phil Mickelson.
Koepka’s close contact with DeChambeau plainly irritated him, as he lost his train of thought and shouted on camera.
DeChambeau is in contention to defend his championship at the US Open this week.
However, he has had to deal with an increase in the number of spectators attempting to put him off his game.
‘Brooksie,’ ‘Miss it,’ and ‘Get in the water,’ were all yelled at DeChambeau.
The 27-year-old, though, claims he is unaffected by the slogans directed at him.
“People assume it irritates me,” he explained.
“If anything, it just creates a fantastic golfing environment. I didn’t know how to deal with it at first.
“You’re thrust into a predicament, but I’m enjoying it now.” You have to accept it.
“Out there, there will be a team Bryson and a team Brooks. Hey, keep doing what you’re doing.”
DeChambeau is teamed with Scottie Scheffler in the final round of the US Open, where he is two strokes off the lead.
However, with the top-13 players separated by only four shots, there could be plenty of movement up the leaderboard.
