Brooks Koepka seems to have sharpened his darts game during quarantine. A motivational target to toss at hasn’t hurt.
As we’ve seen throughout “The Last Dance” docuseries, great athletes like Michael Jordan can take criticism and use it to their advantage. But while MJ often embellished or even imagined slights against him to fuel his competitive side, Koepka has plenty to draw on from Brandel Chamblee.
Among other things, the Golf Channel analyst has ripped Koepka for losing weight for the ESPN Body Issue, questioned if he purposely stood in Rory McIlroy’s line of sight during a tournament, and declared last May that only McIlroy and Dustin Johnson could challenge a healthy Tiger Woods. Shortly after, Koepka won the PGA Championship thanks in part to an opening 63 that prompted Chamblee to say “I felt like he was giving me the finger for four-and-a-half hours today.” Poor Brandel. Even when he defends Tiger, he finds a way to piss someone else off.
Anyway, Koepka hasn’t been giving Chamblee the finger, but rather some darts to the face. Check out his funny dartboard setup—and impressive form:
Well played tossed, Brooks. And Chamblee fired back with a nice response of his own:
Good to see this feud is still in mid-season form.
