The email arrived as I was grilling dinner while watching the closing holes of the WGC-Memphis event.
“This is so ridiculous and ruined our day with the family,” the emailer named Nathan wrote.
“We are following the final pairing and drunk fans are just screaming (non stop) ‘Brooksy’ the whole time, just mocking Bryson DeChambeau.
“My sons are fans of Bryson and they feel intimidated. It has ruined what we thought would be a great family day.”
Harris English agreed. The classy Georgia native, who was paired with DeChambeau on Sunday, was stunned by the behavior of Brooks Koepka‘s goon squad.
“It’s not real fair for them (fans) to call him ‘Brooksy’ a lot,” English said, according to Golf.com. “It kind of sucks, and obviously he hears it, and it affects him a little bit. He doesn’t like it, and I think that causes them to do it more.”
He added, “It just sucks that that’s out here right now, that they’re trying to irk people like that. It’s just unfortunate.”
Golf Digest’s Shane Ryan rightfully called the harassment of DeChambeau “four-plus hours of bullying.”
The PGA Tour needs to step in and end the “bullying” by the Palm Beach’s gangster‘s posse. It’s no longer just negatively impacting DeChambeau, it’s now affecting the experience of its fans.
