Eddie Pepperell rips “single minded twit” Bryson DeChambeau

Yesterday, I posted video of Bryson DeChambeau taking nearly 3 minutes to hit a 70 yard wedge at THE NORTHERN TRUST.

This morning an even more egregious video surfaced showing DeChambeau taking his sweet time over an 8-foot putt much to the dismay of his playing partners Justin Thomas and Tommy Fleetwood.

The looks on both Justin Thomas’ and Tommy Fleetwood’s faces show just how painful it is to play with DeChambeau.

This is indefensible. There is absolutely no reason for DeChambeau to take this long and check his green book three times. While many believe that removing the green books will solve this problem, guys like DeChambeau will indecisively circle their putts until they are forced to hit.

After the video hit Twitter, Eddie Pepperell, not one to mince his words, lit into DeChambeau.

Pepperell isn’t the only one who feels this way …

Twitter was on fire with slow-play takes ranging from insults to apologies to his round three playing partner Dylan Frittelli.

My solution is to lose the green books and put players on a one minute clock. Why do players get only three minutes to find a lost ball but are allowed to do this on the green, fairway, rough, tee box (like J.B. did at The Open).
