Koepka’s dad in Twitter spat with Brandel Chamblee

Brandel Chamblee And Bob Koepka

Memo to the critics: if you take on one Koepka, you take on EVERY Koepka.

Just ask Brandel Chamblee.

The Golf Channel analyst has been critical of world No.1 Brooks Koepka on more than one occasion this year.

Ahead of the Masters, for example, he described the four-time major winner’s decision to weight for a nude magazine shoot the “most recklessself-sabotage that I have ever seen by an athlete in their prime”.

• Is this the greatest Walker Cup team of all time?

However, it was an observation he made after Koepka took the first round lead at Augusta National this year that appears to have had the most lasting effect.

Chamblee said that he “needed to be convinced” that Koepka was as mentally tough as people made out.

• The weird fact about the US Walker Cup captain

Koepka later said that this, in particular, had “really pissed me off” – and it appears to have had the same effect on his dad, Bob.


After playing in last week’s PGA Tour Champions event, Chamblee tweeted about an incident in which his wife – who caddied for him – talked him taking on a tricky shot.

That prompted this reply from Bob Koepka.

Chamblee bit back.

Koepka Snr was having none of it, however, and kept up his attack, this time standing up for his other tour pro son, Chase.

Brooks has previously chosen his younger brother as his partner for the two-man PGA Tour event the Zurich Classic.

Evidently, Chamblee criticised that decision but, according to Bob, had no such issue with Davis Love III choosing his son Dru Love to be his playing partner in the same event.

Again, Chamblee stood his ground...

And again, Koepka Snr hit back, pointing to the number of PGA Tour starts Dru Love has made.

Suffice to say Chamblee won’t be receiving a Christmas card from The Koepkas this year.
