He's currently 2nd to last at BMW.  Does anyone know if he's actually playing faster?

That was a non-apology apology, take back the apology, tell the haters **** you, but I love you, even though you hate me.

All while looking right up his nose....Yup!   I'm a fan!

 

That wasn't any kind of an apology. 
I thought it was pretty great.

I actually kind of like him now.

I could not even watch the entire OP clip.  Had to skip ahead a couple times...brutal.  

The golf channel showed it and they sped up the frame rate... hilarious!

Well, he certainly accomplished that, and managed to alienate the entire tour playing behind him... 😁😂😁

 

 Ah, yes. 2:10 for an 8 footer is absolutely riveting, edge-of-the-seat stuff.

Others replied, but… you're nuts if you think that taking 2:15 to hit a 9' Putt is acceptable.

 

🤷‍♀️

I was thinking more about right now, after the fact. Almost comical, if that behavior didn’t give a “pass” to slow play 🥺

Golf Digest times Bryson DeChambeau in Round 1 of the Tour Championship.

Interesting read.  It categories his shot types into tee, approach, short-approach, and putting--and gives his average times for each (with outliers).  Of course this is a small field with 2-player groups, on what they describe as a very straight-forward course, so group-times were likely about as fast as they get.  Still, I'd like to have known his group's time relative to the others.

The biggest infraction came on the ninth green. Facing a 36-foot uphill birdie putt, DeChambeau took two minutes and 41 seconds from marking his ball to contact. His putt went six feet by, and even though he watched Reavie for 50 seconds, it didn't appear like he started to look at his comeback line until after Reavie's birdie attempt was struck. Another minute ensued before DeChambeau was off the green.

If the tour officials are afraid to penalize slow players like DeChambeau then they need to allow their plying partners to self police them. it’s got to affect more players than the ones that have already have spoke up. I mean you get into a rhythm and then you have to wait for someone all day long? Rediculous!

Yep. BD is a total douchebag. Really need to see him get penalized. Then we’ll see for sure if he has any redeeming qualities.

    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
    • You know what I'm talking about.  That hole that eats your lunch every time you face it.  It may not even be a tough hole, but for some reason you can't seem to score well.   Mine is the opening hole on the Gold Course at Martin County Golf and Country Club.  It's a long par 5 dogleg left.  There's water halfway down, huge greenside bunkers, and several well-placed trees to punish any attempt at cutting the corner off the tee.  The rough slopes away steeply the whole way down the right side, often kicking your ball into the woods.  A bogey is my standard score.  I feel like I'm automatically going to be down a stroke right out of the gate. I've been playing that course since I was 12.  I'm 42 now.  Today, I reached the green in two for the first time in my life, then made birdie.  I couldn't believe it! Below are some short vids of me on my way to finally conquering this beast.  I'd love to hear about your trials with your nemesis hole.   And then the 3-wood, high draw to the green:
