'Hey guys. It's Brooksie': Brooks Koepka pokes Bryson DeChambeau, offers free beer to fans kicked out of Memorial
Brooks Koepka is not playing at the Memorial this week but he is monitoring the action, particularly that surrounding Bryson DeChambeau.
On Friday, DeChambeau alerted security at Muirfield Village after taking exception with fans who were yelling “Brooksie” at him.
A PGA Tour media representative confirmed that “Bryson had an issue with some spectators and notified security, who dealt with them.”
DeChambeau later told reporters “Oh they weren’t taunts at all, it was flattering. I think it’s absolutely flattering what they’re doing.”

In a video posted to social media later in the day Friday, Brooks had a message for the fans.
“Hey guys. It’s Brooksie,” he started his message. “Thank you guys for the support. I heard a bunch of you were shouting my name at the golf tournament today,” Koepka said, speaking into his cell phone camera with a bottle of beer on the table in front of him.
He went on to tell fans to direct-message Michelob Ultra, which plans to give out 50 cases of beer.
