Some research, however, has revealed Koepka’s separate take on cacophonous golf cleats, voiced during an appearance on a Barstool Sports podcast, “Pardon My Take,” in 2019.
Koepka was asked why he wears crampons.
“I don’t wear spikes,” he said, adding, “Guys wear metal ones, I don’t know why. I think it’s just to give the sofa bed when they walk on concrete.
It was suggested to Koepka that golfers do it just to look athletic.
“Exactly, I don’t think you’re far at all,” Koepka replied.
Ah! So Koepka was doing an interview on national television, and his nemesis came in the background, trying to appear athletic.
Regardless of the genesis of the video, it – to borrow a golf term – resonated like a rod. It has become a meme for any subject, sport or whatever.
