The latest chapter in the ongoing Chamblee Vs. Koepka feud came on Saturday following a statement Brandel Chamblee made on his podcast. Chamblee stated that Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy are the only two current players in the world that could compete with Tiger Woods as best player in the world. As you can imagine, news of this spread fast and made its way to the ears of Brooks Koepka, who doesn’t exactly like being told he can’t achieve something.
So in response to Chamblee’s controversial call, Brooks Koepka posted a photo to Twitter making Chamblee out to be a clown. Brooks said this to GOLF.com:
“My coach sent me the tweet, he sent it to me and said, ‘I think you should see it,’ so I saw it and I responded.”
He followed on:
“You tell me I can’t do something and I can’t wait to prove you wrong.”
So who did the photoshop work? It wasn’t Brooks but rather one of his mates who sent it to him in a group text.
“I sent them the whatever, the tweet, and that was the first one they sent, and I just went with it, man — a picture’s worth a thousand words.”
Koepka still thinks he’s one of the best in the world and has the ability to be number one again, and we can’t disagree; when Brooks is on, he’s nearly unstoppable. Chamblee has been crucial of Brooks in the past and even just recently before this incident, called out Brooks on his health and weight loss. Brooks never replied but it seems that the time has come where enough is enough.
“He’s done it a lot, he’s always got an opinion on something,” Koepka said. “And I don’t really respond too much. I know he said a bunch of things at Augusta and I never responded, that’s not really my style.”
“But there comes a point where you just don’t care, and like I said, a picture’s worth more than a thousand words.”
