How to watch Bryson DeChambeau vs. Brooks Koepka in The Match originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
The Match is back.
The fifth iteration of the charity golf event will feature one of golf’s biggest rivalries as four-time major champion Brooks Koepka battles one-time major champion Bryson DeChambeau.
Koepka recently told Golfweek his relationship with DeChambeau is “non-existent,” while DeChambeau said the two have “kind of a disdain for each other.”
Those comments aren’t surprising in the least. The two golfers have been involved in a public beef that dates back a few years.
But no moment from their feud is more notable than what occurred at the 2021 PGA Championship. While Koepka was conducting an interview, DeChambeau (and his loud spikes) walked right behind him, causing Koepka to lose his train of thought. Koepka was visibly frustrated by the incident, and his reaction instantly went viral.
We could get more memorable moments like that when the two are mic’d up for their showdown in The Match V.
Here’s everything you need to know before Koepka and DeChambeau’s rivalry takes center stage in Sin City:
