How to watch Bryson DeChambeau vs. Brooks Koepka in The Match originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The Match is back.

The fifth edition of the charity golf event will feature one of golf’s biggest rivalries as quadruple Major Champion Brooks Koepka takes on former Major Champion Bryson DeChambeau.

Koepka recently told GolfWeek her relationship with DeChambeau is “non-existent”, while DeChambeau said the two had “a kind of contempt for each other”.

These comments are not at all surprising. Both golfers were involved in a public beef which dates back a few years.

But no moment in their feud is more notable than what happened in the 2021 PGA Championship. While Koepka conducted an interview, DeChambeau (and his strong spikes) walked right behind him, causing Koepka to lose the thread of his thoughts. Koepka was visibly frustrated with the incident and his reaction instantly went viral.

We could get more memorable moments like this when the two are on the mic for their clash in The Match V.

Here’s everything you need to know before the rivalry between Koepka and DeChambeau takes center stage in Sin City:
