Bryson DeChambeau lost a bet in Australia and … gave the fan his socks?!?

Here’s one we haven’t heard before.

Bryson DeChambeau was on the practice putting green Saturday after the second round of the LIV Golf League event at the Grange Golf Club in Adelaide, Australia, having some fun with the golf-crazed fans. That’s nothing new, of course.

What is new, is what the fan asked for if DeChambeau could not make a 10-foot putt.

“If I don’t make it, what do you want,” DeChambeau asked the man.

“I want your socks,” he quickly replied.

“Alright, I’ll give him the socks,” DeChambeau said.

The putt looked like it may find the bottom of the cup but stayed left and missed by a few inches. DeChambeau, true to his word, took off both shoes and socks, signed the socks and gave them to the fan.

Perhaps the funniest part of this video is not anything that happened with the bet itself or the delivering of the socks, but rather at the end when DeChambeau is walking barefoot into the clubhouse.

This exchange happens without him once breaking stride.

“I lost my socks in a putting contest,” he said.

“You had to give someone your socks,” someone asked.

“Someone wanted my socks … I missed the putt,” said Bryson.

“That’s disgusting,” someone said. Then followed with, “did you sign them?”

“Yep … “

All of this with Dustin Johnson listening in, with a typical DJ look, while sitting on the steps.

Priceless.
