Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau battled it out in a surreal five-hole stretch

For Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau, what began as a friendly push-up contest turned into a match played out with horns, roars and by the end, aggression.

In a thrilling five-hole stretch, Koepka piled up the shots while DeChambeau began to falter. The showdown that included co-leaders before Koepka’s late surge and DeChambeau’s telling 24-foot birdie putt that saved his position.

Koepka won 3-2 in the tie-breaker to finish off the Matchplay tournament.

“He’s really a good friend of mine. He’s a great player,” Koepka said to reporters afterward. “There are times I just want to spank him. … At this point, I haven’t had too many matches like that.”

The Raw Story reports that Koepka said the match’s ending was played out to a Metallica song.

“Probably Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’,” Koepka said. “That’s great. That’s awesome.”
