Golf Refuses to Be Popular & Bans ‘Brooksy’ Chrips to Bryson DeChambeau
PGA is having one of its best seasons ever. They have so many stars. Jon Rahm won a major and looks like the next great one. Phil Mickelson won a major at age 50. Hideki Matsuyama’s Masters’ win helped push golf forward in Southeast Asia. Colin Morikawa continues his dominant start to his career. All of that and you don’t even include the likes of Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Brooks Koepka, and Bryson DeChambeau. The feud between Koepka and DeChambeau is one of the best ones in sports. There are chirps all over the place. After a video caught DeChambeau mad at fans for calling him ‘Brooksy,’ Pardon My Take encouraged others to do the same. Now, the PGA has banned the word altogether. This couldn’t be more ridiculous.
Jay Monahan says "Brooksy" shouts would qualify as harassing behavior under the PGA Tour fan conduct policy, that it's disrespectful and they will not tolerate it going forward.

Some golf purists online are a fan of it, but the fact is feuds are a good thing. If Jay Monahan, the head of the PGA, says ‘Look this thing is out of hand, it’s ridiculous. Bryson can’t play a round without hearing it countless times.’ Maybe, I can understand that. But still, he painted himself as a villain. That’s what it is. Bryson wanted all the smoke and now he can’t take it. Golf doesn’t want to distract from its sport, yet it goes viral every fucking time we talk about it. My guess is if the United States win the Ryder Cup, Bryson might pull his best Roger Dorn and punch Brooks square in the face.
