Turns out Brooks Koepka isn’t just an assassin on the golf course. He’s just as deadly on social media.

Exhibit A: his response to Bryson DeChambeau’s criticism of his phyique.

DeChambeau, 26, took aim at four-time major winner Koepka during his
latest live session on video game streaming platform Twitch.

playing Fortnite, the American – who claims to have bulked up 30 pounds
since the end of the 2018/19 PGA Tour season – called out his Ryder Cup
teammate’s appearance in ESPN magazine’s ‘Body Issue’ last year.

• Ex EPL footballer training to become golf coach

• Sergio out to make amends in Saudi

• Injury set-back for Robert MacIntyre

“Did you see the Body Issue?” said DeChambeau. “He didn’t have any abs. I have abs.”

After carding a 66 in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in his first competitive round for over three months, Koepka fired back. And it is an absolutely PERFECT retort.


At the time of posting, DeChambeau had yet to reply but we’re going to suggest that he just shakes Koepka’s hand and walks into the clubhouse.

As social media poundings go, this is a straight-up 10&8 job.
