Golf has never been the fastest paced sport out there, and if it were left up to Bryson DeChambeau that would never change. The five-time PGA Tour winner made that abundantly clear after his round on Saturday when he shot back at a number of voices, including Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka.
DeChambeau argues that he gets to his ball quicker and should be afforded more time to address it. He infamously walked 70 yards and back on Friday before hitting a shot, leading to much derision. Despite his slow pace, he has never been penalized in a major way by the Tour, which has led to a lot of frustration. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out. If the rules do indeed change, we may be never see DeChambeau compete toward the top again.
