“#Brooks Koepka perfectly trolls Bryson DeChambeau with ‘steroid’ tweet”
July 8, 2020 | 10:29am
The 26-year-old DeChambeau has taken the sport by storm since the PGA Tour’s return from the coronavirus shutdown, capped by a three-shot victory at last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit. It’s not so much the success that has garnered DeChambeau all this attention, though, as much as it is the 40-pound weight gain and booming drives that have accompanied it.
That has led some to speculate there is more than just protein shakes behind DeChambeau’s bulked-up figure. DeChambeau did not help matters when he snapped at a CBS cameraman on Saturday for filming his angry reaction to a poor bunker shot.
Enter Brooks Koepka, who took both these storylines and seemingly found the perfect Kenny Powers GIF for which to subtweet DeChambeau.
Koepka and DeChambeau’s rivalry dates back to January 2019 when Koepka was the most vocal critic of his fellow American’s notoriously meticulous play.
“I just don’t understand how it takes a minute and 20 seconds, a minute and 15 to hit a golf ball; it’s not that hard,” Koepka said at the time.
The bad blood lingered throughout last year with DeChambeau admitting in August that the muscly Koepka “would kick my ass” if the two got into a fight.
A lot has changed in the last year, though. Both are expected to be in the field for next week’s Memorial Tournament in Ohio.
