Brooks Koepka reveals the origin of the Brooks-Bryson beef, per his view

CROMWELL, Conn. – The saga continues. 

While appearing on Tuesday morning’s SportsCenter, Brooks Koepka pointed the finger at Bryson DeChambeau as the one who started their rivalry. Then on Wednesday, just 30 minutes from ESPN’s Bristol campus, at TPC River Highlands, Koepka clarified what he views as the origin of their beef. 

“I thought it was just interesting when [DeChambeau] walked up to my caddie and told Ricky that if I had something to say, to say it to his face,” Koepka said at the Travelers Championship on Wednesday. “I thought that was kind of odd.”

Koepka: Bryson ‘went back on his word’

Koepka then added, “When we had that conversation (at the 2019 Northern Trust), we agreed on something and he went back on it. So, you know, if you’re going to go back on your word I don’t have much respect for that.” 

This goes back to January

El Pasoan Jordan O’Hara makes ESPN No. 1 SportsCenter top ten list

Jordan O’Hara admits he wasn’t sure why his parents were getting him out of bed at 11 p.m. Monday to watch a little television, but what flashed across ESPN’s SportsCenter was worth it.

The just-turned 8-year-old Jordan got to relive his spectacular moment in the Southwest Baseball League, his walk-off unassisted double play that was SportsCenter’s No. 1 highlight in their nightly top 10.

“Pretty cool,” Jordan said.

The play happened three weeks ago, with Jordan’s team leading 4-3 in the final inning of the 7U championship game.

“Technically, I got the ball on first base, it went past me a little,” Jordan said. “I got it and I was going to dive to first, but I saw I didn’t have to. I stepped on it. Then I saw the runner going to score. Technically I ran to him and I got him.”

Baker Mayfield could be first QB of his draft class to get new deal

While Nick Chubb and Wyatt Teller have their contracts expiring at the end of the season, Baker Mayfield’s extension is the most important for the Cleveland Browns.

Denzel Ward joins Mayfield, Chubb and Teller as the four big extensions need among the Browns long list of upcoming free agents.

Mayfield’s situation is cluttered by the other quarterbacks in his class also seeking extensions. Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen are in the same boat as the Browns quarterback after being drafted in the first round as well. Mayfield, as the top pick in the 2018 NFL draft, has had to deal with a ton of turnover and instability in Cleveland while Jackson and Allen have been well supported by their organizations since their rookie season.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that Mayfield’s deal could be the first done of the three big quarterbacks from their draft class:

Brooks Koepka continued his feud with Bryson DeChambeau during an appearance on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Tuesday.

Koepka told SportsCenter host Matt Barrie he’s received multiple calls and texts from current players essentially thanking him for how he’s handled the DeChambeau situation.

“There’s been a few laughs. A few ‘I can’t believe you did that, but I’m glad you did that.’ It’s been fun. I’ve gotten good response from a bunch of guys on tour,” Koepka said during Tuesday’s SportsCenter.

Take a look.

Brooks Koepka didn’t stop there, though. He went on to blame Bryson DeChambeau for starting the feud years ago.

“Hypothetically speaking, Bryson walks up to you this week in Hartford. … He comes up to you, he says, ‘Brooksy, let’s sit down over a beer and talk it out.’ What do you say?” Barrie asked Koepka.

“There’s not much to
