DQ Brandel Chamblee from the Golf Channel

236 posts in this topic

This guy is too much. He made it his personal crusade to blast Tiger Woods every chance he gets. Now I just watched him claim that he is a huge fan of Tiger Woods but he feels tiger should DQ himself. Chamblee is a total hypocrite. My question is  why does Chamblee have such an ax to grind with Tiger Woods? Hit the road Chamblee you are too nauseating. Take your wanna be lawyer three piece suits and get a job on a soap opera.

He's speaking as a golf professional. Sounds like he has more credibility than any of the non-players broadcasting or writing on the subject.  Integrity of the game. No player is above the rules.

I have no problem with what Brandel said this morning. I also thought that Steve Flesch was spot on as well.

It is clear that committee has reviewed the violation and has entered the appropriate  penalty two strokes. End of story. BTW still watching the golf channel now they got Nick Faldo sitting next to Chamblee both ganging up on Tiger. I'd say get rid of that pompous ass as well.

Your man crush is showing...

You're bashing two former golf professionals who have both played more rounds than you and I combined.  Tiger clearly violated the rules, that we can agree on.  There is a pretty clear precedent on tour of situations such as this that players will DQ themselves out of respect for the game.

If anything you should be disgusted that Tiger is getting a free pass because he's the PGA Tour's golden goose.

Perhaps you'll disagree with Faldo and Chamblee, but they certainly aren't BASHING Tiger, they're just stating they're opinion on the subject.

Chamblee going to town on Tiger started to sound like Nancy Grace verbally assaulting Tot-Mom, didn't he?

What bothered me about Chamblee was when he said that he wanted To see Tiger make a run at Jack but in the next breath said he didn't want Tiger to get it "Like this" and that Tiger should disqualify himself. Are you kidding me? He broke a rule and was penalized for it, why in the world should he DQ himself? Plus, if he can come Back from this and win, it could be one of the greatest Masters stories ever.

I agree. I think Brandel is a pompous douche and has been unnecessarily anti-Tiger in the past, but I totally agree with his opinion on this matter. Especially since he did say in the interview he changed his spot on purpose. He knows he's getting away with murder, and even those in golf circles who didn't abandon him a few years ago would probably see this as a sign of bad character.

The new rule was brought in just for this reason, yes i agree without the new rule he would be DQ , but rules are rules and i like freddy think its a good one.

Actually no, it was brought in for balls that wobble on greens or in the fairway/rough that the player has no possible way to see.  Things like marking your ball on the green and when you pull your marker away it it moves ever so slightly.

The rule isnt in place for rule errors by the players.

EDIT: and yes Brandel is a douche and has been ever since the Tiger scandal.  If I didnt know better id say Tiger banged his wife or one of his daughters.  I dont think hes way in the wrong here though.  Im starting to think its really a matter of opinion. ;\

It's not what he says, it's how he says it. Dude should change his name to Summer's Eve. Even if he is spot on the point is lost in all his passive aggressive ranting.

As I said before the committee has ruled. The penalty two strokes. Your hatred of TW is what is showing. Not enough blood for you apparently. As I understand it just listening to PGA radio Tiger was told walking up the 18th hole that his drop was fine. This is the problem with the hyper media and golf. Golf is the only sport that allows rulings on plays to be reversed after the game is completed based on couch potato referees like yourself. Just out of curiosity how many times did Jack Nicklaus make an errand drop similar to TW during his majors during the 60's,70's or 80's? Two ,three ,six?  Given the limited TV coverage we will never know. As  golf purest we must abide by the ruling of the golf committee at Augusta as TW has. I believe he has an argument for no penalty given what he was told while walking up the 18th fairway yesterday.  Your bullying comment suggesting I have a romantic attachment to TW shows what a bigoted fellow you are.

Or, just maybe, Tiger should respect the ruling of the committee.  It is not a free pass, it is a ruling.

BTW, the only good thing about Chamblee is his hair.

LOL...clearly we have a few TW fans in this thread.  Tiger should have been DQed but a new rule allowed the tournament organizers to not DQ him at their discretion.  Had it been anyone else, it would have been a DQ.

It makes them look like a hypocrite when they penalize a 14 year old kid for being slow (something that the pros do all the time and are never penalized) yet they seemingly give Tiger a pass because he is Tiger.

Tiger should be a man of honor and WD because should he go on to win The Masters, it will be a tainted win.

Im sorry that some people cant handle Chamblee stating the obvious but maybe the problem isnt him, its you.

This isn't about being a fan. The committee shouldn't be subject to second guessing. If golf is about integrity then along with observing the rules we have to accept their resolution. To assume they've done something deceptive to favor a player is as wrong as anything concerning this matter. Can't have it both ways.

I notice brandel is not at the commentary desk - think the golf channel DQ'd him? Nobilo seemed kind of exasperated with him at one point

    • It looks like the same scenario as DJ and Wattel in the open. Proximity of the golfer on the ground deforms the ground and it rolls off the blades of grass it was perched on. I think it's a bad penalty, because it's essentially random, though much more likely on very fast & sloped greens.
    • I liked Chappell as a possible pick early in the playoffs. He's a solid ballstriker with good length and the original 8 were a little thin there. If his putting has come alive during the playoffs (he's 'found' something) and his birdie average has bumped up then he would be a solid pick IMO. I think he'd be more of a contributor in fourball than foursomes with relatively weaker putting / short game than guys already on the team. Berger seems to have the most balanced game of the remaining pick options. McGirt and Woodland wouldn't be bad picks either. Justin Thomas may be a good 'chemistry' pick, but his stats for the year seem like he's got a very 'hit or miss' style of game. Maybe he was saving it for the end of the season, though? Moore would be an okay pick, but I expect he's a little short for Hazeltine (ballstriking is not his strength) and the squad already has Sneds and Zach. Duf wouldn't be a bad pick either if his game is on form and his putting has warmed up a bit.
    • On the penalty assessed to Justin Thomas, this will lead all golfers to mark their ball before putting anything but a tap in.  If he marks the ball and the places the ball back down, the ball probably won't move as it did.  With millions on the line, a player needs to mark the ball and inspect the putting surface.  Just a bad rule in my opinion but the ruling was correct.  Guilty until proven innocent.
    • If it is a municipal (city owned) course there may be no support from the city to maintain it beyond the absolute minimum. Truth is, cities have budgets and there is no money appropriated to improve it.  It really is a vicious circle.  Poorer conditions result in fewer rounds being played.  Costs out weigh revenue, rates are raised so even fewer people play the course and that results in less revenue.  It becomes an anchor on the city budget and easy prey for an investor.  So many muni courses have disappeared. John
    • After reading all these stories of how rarely it has happened to you guys I feel like an absolute menace on the golf course.   First time I ever hit into a group in front of me it was a blind approach into the green.  I drove my cart to the top of the hill to get a line on the flag.  One guy was getting his ball out of the hole and another guy was carrying the flag back to the hole.  I figured that by the time I got back to my ball they would be gone.  I lined up my shot, took several practice swings, checked my line again, and then blasted a beautiful, high, straight shot over the hill, right on line at the flag.  Pulled back up the hill and saw they were still putting.  Went up to apologise, and they congratulated me on a great shot.  He said it clipped the brim of his hat as he was tapping in and checked up a foot from the cup.  They also insisted that I play thru. Second time I did it on that course I sliced my drive two fairways over and hit into a cart on the move up the cart path. It rattled around in the cart and they both dove out of the cart for cover. Happened a few times on my home course too.  Several holes have blind drives and approaches due to all the hills in East Tennessee.  When play is slow you inevitably catch someone in a blind spot.  I got stuck behind a slow group one day and had to wait for ever shot from the 4th hole on.  By the 6th a young twosome had caught up to my group because of the slow play in front of us.  By the back nine they started getting impatient and driving onto us.  On hole 14 the preferred shot is to hit 170-200 yard layup from the tee to leave a 130-160 yard uphill shot into a blind green.  I was about 150 yards out waiting on the green to clear when they teed off.  Their ball rolled right up to my feet.  I turned around angry and hit their ball right back at them.  I was so ticked I blasted my 150 yard club at least 200 yards back at them flying over their head and into the woods behind the tees.  Didn't see them anymore that day.
