While walking toward the tunnel near the 18th hole at Caves Valley Golf Club, DeChambeau handed his hat to a young fan but just moments later another spectator shouted, "Great job, Brooksie," referencing DeChambeau’s longtime feud with Brooks Koepka. 

According to the report, DeChambeau "had rage in his eyes" but quickly diffused the situation after motioning for security to come over. 

Sunday’s incident was apparently a build-up from repeated "Brooksie" chants that were heard throughout the weekend. It’s unclear if the individual on Sunday was removed but it certainly wouldn’t be a first. 

At least three fans were ejected from the Memorial Tournament in June for shouting Koepka’s name, despite him not being at the tournament. In true fashion, Koepka announced after that he would be giving out free beer to those who had their time "cut short." 

In response to Sunday’s incident, Commissioner Jay Monahan said that yelling or saying "Brooksie" to DeChambeau will result in expulsion from a tournament, according to ESPN

The two pros recently agreed to put their feud on hold for the Ryder Cup next month but there’s no telling how DeChambeau will react if fans don’t submit to the new rules.

Tour pros react to PGA Tour's new 'Brooksy' rule on social media

Golf Digest 31 August, 2021 - 03:19pm

On Tuesday, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan sent shockwaves through the Golf Twitter world when he classified chants of "Brooksy" in the direction of Bryson DeChambeau as harrassing behavior, the type that could get fans kicked out at tournaments moving forward. We can say with almost certainty that with enough alcohol, the "Brooksy Rule" will be put to the test this week at the Tour Championship.

The vocal minority have already begun weighing in on social media, and the cries of golf being "soft" are already loud and clear. Like all opinions, that's one people are entitled to, though more nuanced opinion-havers are finding themselves in the "this has gone a little too far" camp.

As for DeChambeau's fellow pros, a number of them offered their opinions on the matter on Twitter, and most had fun with it as opposed to actually digging in on one side (smart move). James Hahn, a two-time PGA Tour winner, kicked it off shortly after news of Monahan's announcement broke:

It’s official. Calling Bryson anything but his real name will get you thrown out of a golf tournament. So if any one of you call me Kevin Na, Danny Lee or Sang Moon Bae, we’re gonna have some problems. 💪🏼

Lee Westwood joined in on the fun not long after: 

I’ve been called Lumpy, Oosty, Clarkey (amongst other names that I can’t mention) on and off for the last 25 yrs!!! And now you bring a rule in! @PGATOUR

Shane Lowry then reminded us all that he's dealt with people calling him the wrong name for quite some time now, though it's obviously an honest mistake:

If everyone who calls me @BeefGolf gets kicked out there will be no fans left!! 😂😂😂😂

And yes, of course Twitter kings Joel Dahmen and Max Homa got their PIP ranking up:

Pretty good stuff, though there's one reaction we're still waiting for. We'll let you use your imagination on that one.

49ers stock report: Who's up, who's down after win over Raiders

CBS Sports 30 August, 2021 - 02:44pm

A new three-game preseason put more urgency on the third game for the 49ers as they continue figuring out their best 53-man roster and what their depth chart is going to look like.

While the Raiders sat virtually all of their starters, the 49ers had plenty on the line Sunday as it pertains to what the team will be working with going into the regular season.

In a 34-10 win there aren’t many players seeing their stocks drop significantly, but a slew of players had their stocks ticking up with just a couple days to go before final roster cuts.

The 49ers rushing attack racked up 242 yards on 48 carries against a Raiders team that didn’t play any starters. While it’s important to remember the level of competition, it’s worth noting some of the confusion Trey Lance’s legs created in the Raiders’ defense. It was clear that a mobile quarterback is going to wreak havoc in whatever head coach Kyle Shanahan draws up.

The 49ers dropped at least three more passes in Sunday’s win. All three preseason games featured a variety of drops across the board. There are going to be balls that should be caught and aren’t, but it can’t be a game-by-game trend for San Francisco once the games count.

Hurd played for the first time all preseason and got in for 27 snaps on offense and a couple on special teams. His ceiling is still high despite a couple of injury issues early in his career. His four catches on six targets for 25 yards Sunday were probably enough to keep him on the 53-man roster where he can continue to get his NFL legs under him.

Hasty was dynamite in the preseason and capped it off with 55 yards and two touchdowns on six carries. It wasn’t just the statistical production that stuck out though. He ran tough, showed great burst, and looked to have taken a step forward in his second year. Hasty should not only make the team, but he could push for carries even in a fully healthy backfield.

This one requires some context. Lenoir’s stock dipped because it’d risen so high through two preseason games. Sunday he got beat by Dillon Stoner on a deep shot for 32 yards and whiffed on an open-field tackle later in the game. Going into the finale Lenoir had allowed only one catch for 9 yards on six targets. Raiders QB Nathan Peterman completed three of four throws at Lenoir for 39 yards. Despite a tough last preseason game, Lenoir should be a factor in the 49ers’ secondary this year.

It looked like Tartt might miss the entire preseason while recovering from offseason toe surgery, but he was activated from they Physically Unable to Perform list just in time to practice and play in the final week of the exhibition schedule. He got in 29 defensive snaps and racked up five tackles in his first game since November 5, 2020. Tartt should be a shoo-in to make the team and looks to be in line for the starting strong safety job.

Harris put together an impressive preseason as a linebacker after playing safety his first four years in the NFL. He hasn’t perfected the position, but his athleticism near the line of scrimmage could make him a very effective player at his new spot. Harris was around the ball constantly Sunday while putting up three tackles. He made a strong case for a roster spot.
