In retrospect it’s kind of amazing that golf produced not one but two mainstream crossover events this past week, with Phil Mickelson’s historic win at the PGA Championship quickly followed up by the viral video of Brooks Koepka’s bemused reaction to Bryson DeChambeau’s existence.

The video has by now been scrubbed from pretty much everywhere, an understandable decision by NBC/Golf Channel. (Regrettable, yes, but still understandable; it was never aired and was never meant to air. It’s a different situation than many prior incidents where the PGA Tour issued DMCA’s to take down newsworthy moments that were actually on the broadcast.)

Still, it’s fair to wonder how the video was leaked at all. Dylan Dethier at took a stab at that question with his piece here, which is very much worth a read.
