Golfers Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau supposedly hate each other. (I get the impression that DeChambeau’s dislike is legit and Koepka is mostly trolling.) 

But now they’re cashing in by exploiting their hate. 

What a couple of phonies. 

Koepka and DeChambeau will compete one-on-one in the fifth edition of “The Match,” a made-for-TV event at the Wynn Golf Club in Las Vegas. 

“The Match” airs on Turner Sports the day after Thanksgiving. 

It’s 12 holes, not 18, by way of paying tribute to 12-round boxing matches.

Here’s betting neither Koepka nor DeChambeau has ever thrown a real punch in his life. 

Koepka and DeChambeau have been busting each other’s chops for over two years. But dinner at the Ryder Cup and the lure of easy money diluted their anger, boiling it down to greed. 

If they clubbed each other with nine-irons, I’d watch. 

But “The Match” will doubtless feature scripted barbs paired with golf that’s meaningless to everybody but those getting paid. It proves nothing. Hard pass. Koepka and DeChambeau compete 1-on-1 in the fifth edition of “The Match,” a made-for-TV event. Scripted barbs + meaningless golf.
