It was the awkward moment that went viral following Phil Mickelson’s incredible PGA Championship major win.
Brooks Koepka – four time major champion – rolling his eye and blowing up deluxe as compatriot and Ryder Cup teammate Bryson DeChambeau walked past him, muttering something under his breathe.
