PGA TOUR bans fans from chanting 'Brooksy' at DeChambeau
With the Brooks Koepka-Bryson DeChambeau feud laying dormant for now, the PGA TOUR has decided to ban fans from yelling "Brooksy" at the beleaguered DeChambeau once and for all.
TOUR commissioner Jay Monahan said Tuesday the "Brooksy" shouts are disrespectful and qualify as harassing behavior under the TOUR's updated fan conduct policy, according to Ryan Lavner of Golf Channel. Anyone who uses the taunt could be expelled from a tournament.
DeChambeau has been fending off "Brooksy" chants for some time, and it was reported that he confronted a fan after his six-hole playoff loss to Patrick Cantlay at the BMW Championship on Sunday. The spectator apparently addressed the 27-year-old by saying, "Great job, Brooksy!"
DeChambeau reportedly responded by yelling, "You know what? Get the f--- out!"
The TOUR Championship is set to kick off Thursday in Atlanta. DeChambeau currently sits third in the FedEx Cup standings. Koepka, 31, sits 20th.
With the Ryder Cup set for September, U.S. captain Steve Stricker has said he's confident DeChambeau and Koepka can set their rivalry aside for that tournament.
