In “The Match” in Las Vegas, Brooks Koepka defeats Bryson DeChambeau 4&3

Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka had been feuding for more than a year, but Koepka won the annual charity match in Las Vegas and said, “I just wanted to spank him.”

Brooks Koepka defeated Bryson DeChambeau 4&3 in a 12-hole edition of The Match in Las Vegas.

With the exception of a brief respite for the USA’s Ryder Cup victory in September, two of the world’s top golfers feuded for much of 2021, but it is former World No. 1 Koepka who concludes the year with bragging rights.

The latest round of the charity tournament was much-hyped, owing to the feud between the two that erupted at the PGA Championship in May, but on the course, it was one-way traffic, with Dicamba struggling to get into a rhythm at the Wynn Golf Club.

Koepka won the second by holing from 15 feet, then extended his advantage to three holes with birdies at the 5th and 6th, then saw DeChambeau miss an easy birdie putt at the 8th to go four up with four holes to play.

DeChambeau conceded after missing another putt at the ninth.

Viktor Hovland wins back-to-back at Mayakoba

Viktor Hovland cruised to a successful defence of his World Wide Technology Championship title at Mayakoba, firing a final-round 67 to win by four strokes over a fast-finishing Carlos Ortiz.

Hovland’s advantage had grown to six strokes on the back nine, but Ortiz cut it to three with a stunning run of five birdies in six holes down the stretch.

But the young Norwegian always had plenty in hand to stroll to the finish line, and despite a few of blunders down the stretch, a closing 67 was enough to claim a four-shot triumph – his third PGA Tour victory.
