Koepka takes down rival DeChambeau in The Match
Brooks Koepka earned bragging rights in his feud with Bryson DeChambeau after besting his PGA Tour foe in the latest edition of 'The Match'.
Koepka and DeChambeau have been at loggerheads on the PGA Tour, tensions high since 2019 when the former called out the latter for slow play.
DeChambeau responded by taking aim at fellow American Koepka's physique in 2020.
The pair came together to help the United States to a record-setting Ryder Cup triumph over Europe in September, but they renewed their rivalry in Las Vegas on Friday.
In a 12-hole exhibition showdown at Wynn Golf Club, four-time major champion Koepka celebrated a 4 and 3 victory in the match for charity.
"Not going to lie, I just wanted to spank you," Koepka told 2020 U.S. Open winner DeChambeau upon clinching victory on the ninth hole.
"I haven't played in two months," DeChambeau told TNT. "No excuses, though. I should have done better."
Mid-match, DeChambeau asked Koepka rhetorically: "Where is this on the PGA Tour? You're playing so good right now".
"It's kind of like my major right now, right?" Koepka replied.
Afterwards, Koepka said: "Obviously, watching him up close and personal is pretty neat, pretty special to watch him hit the ball.
"Like I said, there is respect there, but at the same time it was fun to come out here and settle this."
DeChambeau added: "I've always had respect for Brooks. He's won four major championships and what he's done for the game.
"At the end of the day it was 12 holes and he got me. So, hopefully, there will be a rematch sometime soon."
