Bryson DeChambeau questioned how Brooks Koepka produced such stunning golf against him in Las Vegas as he was humbled 4&3 in The Match.
Koepka, who first began the public feud by rolling his eyes in a now-famous interview from the PGA Championship in May, went 3 up through six holes and won the 8th hole to make it dormie four.
The four-time major champion secured victory on the 9th hole and the American Ryder Cup teammates shared a frosty handshake as The Match came to a conclusion.
"I just wanted to spank ya," Koepka said to his big-hitting nemesis, and this is certainly what he did. But DeChambeau did not leave the course without getting a couple of comments in himself.
When Koepka dialled in yet another pinpoint approach shot close to the pin, DeChambeau said: "Where is this on the PGA Tour man? You're playing so, so good right now, my man."
Since the Ryder Cup, the 31-year-old has struggled to find form on the PGA Tour. He has played in four events since the end of September and missed the cut in two of them.
His best finish of the new PGA Tour season so far came at the CJ Cup where he finished in a tie for 38th place. DeChambeau is yet to reappear in the 2022 season.
However, four of Koepka's eight PGA Tour wins have come at major championships. He has two US Open and two USPGA trophies to his name, achievements that DeChambeau is yet to equal.
"This is kind of like my major now, right?" And Koepka performs at major championships, there is always a guarantee of that.
Maybe he did a lot of practice under the radar? We know that he is extremely pleased with his new Srixon clubs so this may have been a key part of his victory at The Wynn Golf Club in Las Vegas.
