It was an internet meme that spread around the world.
When Brooks Koepka won the PGA Championship earlier this month, one Twitter user decided to take it from there:
Anyone know how to make a better swing? #cbhouston #playman #bdctex pic.twitter.com/PnySsX4izQ — Makka (@dollulsomething) August 14, 2017
While this Vine video will not strike fear into the hearts of Koepka’s teammates, it gave the leader in the PGA of America’s election vote an out.
Doug Ford, who received a nearly four-vote lead over DeChambeau, then sent out a tweet showing a proper swing of his own.
And then DeChambeau ripped open Koepka’s crime sheet:

It’s widely presumed that the two men on either side of the aghast Twitter exchange — DeChambeau and Koepka — will both serve on Team USA when golfers will begin a 48-hole session on Sept. 28 in France.
According to BookMaker, DeChambeau is an 8-to-1 underdog for the final match in France, while Koepka is a 7-to-1 favorite.
