AND WE’RE BACK…
In golfers who don’t care about pace of play or their playing partners news, we have the one and only Bryson DeChambeau taking his sweet time to hit a shot that shouldn’t have taken 40 seconds to hit.

Look at this guy.
What a joke.
The worst part about this is that Bryson knows that he can do this and no one from the Tour will say anything about it.
The guys he was playing with did though and more players are starting to speak up against this BS.
On a calm, sunny day, the threesome of Justin Thomas, Tommy Fleetwood and Bryson DeChambeau took 4 hours and 51 minutes (!) to play. (Hint: JT, Tommy weren't the issue).
Asked JT about slow play afterward: "The slow people know who they are, and they just need to play faster."
