Bryson DeChambeau got back into Brooks Koepka’s shot.
DeChambeau was in camera range for his rival at the US Open on Thursday as Koepka prepared for a post-tour interview with Golf Channel. The muscular man decided to say hello as he passed.
Last month at the PGA Championship, DeChambeau reached out to Koepka and said something while Koepka was being interviewed. Koepka rolled his eyes at the mere sight of DeChambeau. That reaction brought the long meat of the main champions to Grade A Prime level.

As part of the aftermath, the Memorial Tournament spectators yelled “Hey, Brooksie” to DeChambeau on the tee. The fans were removed from the field shortly after. According to GolfweekDeChambeau denied having a role in it.
The conflict even extended to the promotion of this year’s version of “The Match,” as Koepka apologized to DeChambeau’s playing partner, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Koepka won Round 1 of their heads-up Thursday at 69 2-under against DeChambeau’s 73 at Torrey Pines South Course. DeChambeau tried to find answers on the driving range in the dead of night (wait for the sound).
