The confrontation between Bryson DeChambeau and an oiled-up heckler Sunday at the BMW Championship was only noteworthy for DeChambeau’s response in the heat of the moment. He’s been called “Brooksie” any number of times in the last few months during his tug-of-war with Brooks Koepka.

But PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan has drawn a line in the sand and is daring anyone to cross it.

In the annals of professional golf, the short-lived Pennsylvania Classic was barely a blip on the radar, existing for only seven years with a series of title sponsors, held at several venues and largely won by a roster of passersby among the PGA Tour ranks. Except for one year—and we are not talking about the 2006 edition featuring Michelle Wie—the tournament was forgettable.
