Bryson DeChambeau lost the BMW Championship on Sunday when his birdie putt on the sixth playoff hole didn’t fall, giving Patrick Cantlay the win in what was a tremendous final round of the PGA Tour’s second of three playoff tournaments.
DeChambeau has had a rough go of it lately with fans who have been heckling him with "Brooksie” chants pretty much every time he tees it up. It stems from his beef with Brooks Koepka and is something that is getting really old and dumb and should stop.
Apparently a fan yelled "Brooksie” at DeChambeau as he angrily made his way to scorer’s tent just moments after he missed that birdie putt and things almost got out of control.
ESPN’s great Kevin Van Valkenburg was on the scene following DeChambeau up the hill and through the crowd and had this report of the situation:
Halfway up the hill, something happened that made me feel like we’ve arrived at a miserable place in the never-ending circus that is DeChambeau. A patron waited until DeChambeau had walked by, but was not out of earshot, then sneered from over the rope line "Great job Brooksie!” DeChambeau spun around in a rage and began briefly walking in his direction.
"You know what? Get the f— out!” DeChambeau yelled. He had rage in his eyes.
I’m being dead serious when I say it could have gotten ugly really fast. Maybe not "Malice At The Palace” bad, but in that moment, nothing would’ve surprised me. A rope line is little more than a polite suggestion when it comes to security a golf tournament. DeChambeau had been hearing, and ignoring, that kind of taunt all week. But everyone has their breaking point.
Van Valkenburg said that DeChambeau then had cops deal with the fan and stormed away.
This whole thing is getting way out of control and it feels like it’s going to be this way for a long time.
The Koepka-DeChambeau beef was fun at the beginning and now it just needs to go away.
