It proved less of a match, more a walk in the park for Brooks Koepka.
So much so that the fifth edition of “The Match” in Las Vegas, which was scheduled to be over 12 holes, didn’t go the distance.
Bryson DeChambeau didn’t win a single hole, before conceding on the ninth as Koepka won 4&3 at the Wynn Golf Course.
“Man, I haven’t seen a beatdown like this since me and Phil put it on [Peyton Manning] and Steph [Curry],” quipped commentator Charles Barkley, referring to when he partnered with six-time major champion Phil Mickelson in the third edition of “The Match.”
Alongside Barkley, Mickelson was also a TV commentator for the match between Koepka and DeChambeau.
The rivalry between Koepka and DeChambeau has brewed for over two years. It’s been played out on golf courses and social media and has encompassed plenty of jibes and memes.
It all began with a dispute over slow play, and Koepka’s criticism of DeChambeau’s meticulous approach.
