Brooks Koepka Says Analyst Brandel Chamblee’s Criticism During Masters Week Made Him Angry

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — Brandel Chamblee might not want to run into Brooks Koepka in a dark alley anytime soon.

Just moments after his fourth major championship win at Bethpage Black, the 2019 champion was asked about his use of career slights and what the “most disrespected or slighted” he’s felt as an athlete.

“Telling me I wasn’t tough,” Koepka said during a news conference. “That pissed me off. That really pissed me off.”

After an awkward pause, he was asked who said he was not tough.

“I think we all know.”

Koepka was referring to Golf Channel analyst Chamblee, who questioned Koepka’s toughness during Masters week, suggested he was unable to hang with Tiger like peers Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy, and took Koepka to task for losing weight to look his best for an ESPN photo shoot.
