Sport Watch: Bryson DeChambeau belts drives from hotel rooftop at Brooks Koepka target
Bryson DeChambeau roasts Brooks Koepka heading into The Match 5
Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka are facing off in the fifth edition of Capital One's The Match on Black Friday and they're trading barbs on Twitter. On the day after Thanksgiving, golf fans could conceivably have a conclusion to the Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka feud that has drawn plenty of eyes over the past year. That, of course, is because they'll be playing in the fifth Capital One's The Match in a one vs. one showdown on the golf course. But while we still have a little more than a week until that 12-hole event from Las Vegas, at least one of the two golfers involved is trying to add a little more fuel to the fire.
The Brooks and Bryson hype machine for Capital One’s: The Match is officially in full swing.
Ahead of their 12-hole duel on Friday, November 26, Bryson DeChambeau took an elevator to the 60th floor of the Wynn Las Vegas and climbed to the roof to hit a target with arch rival Brooks Koepka’s face on it.
“Why’s he smiling? I’m about to hit him in the face,” DeChambeau said.
From a height of 614 feet, DeChambeau launched a few drives over 500 yards to hit a target laid out on the Wynn Golf Club course the two will soon meet on for their head-to-head match-up.

Bryson being Bryson he asked, “What’s the slope adjustment?”
He was told 19 degrees with wind nearly 10 miles per hour.
No idea whether The Mad Scientist did some calculations in his head but he was smiling as he let rip. When DeChambeau belted his first drive, he pronounced, “That’s gone,” but turned out it was short. He kept getting closer but his frustration was rising until he finally clocked one off Koepka’s mug. It wasn’t quite a bullseye, but it would do.
“Now it’s time to go beat him in the real match,” DeChambeau said.
Let’s hope the actual match lives up to the hype.
