Bryson DeChambeau mocks Brooks Koepka's recent play ahead of their match

Officially, the made-for-TV match between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka doesn't start until next week. Unofficially, Bryson already took a 1-up lead.

DeChambeau delivered quite a dagger on Wednesday to get the trash-talking (re)started between the PGA Tour's top feud. Brooks hasn't been playing well of late, missing his last two cuts. And, well, Bryson let him know about it:

Ouch. And you thought they made up at the Ryder Cup.

Of course, we expected some banter between the two to drum up interest in the Nov. 26 12-hole exhibition in Las Vegas on TNT. And yes, it's always PIP szn.

Still, to kick a man while he's down? A man whose struggles reached the point of resorting to a recent night range session? And to use that man's infamous eyeroll that was directed at you against him? That's pretty rough. Rough enough to even seem pretty genuine.

Anyway, shots fired from Bryson (perhaps, he was inspired by the shot Justin Thomas fired at him earlier in the day). Your turn, Brooks.
