I've been sort of ambivalent about Bryson and his quirkiness.  But today's poor sportsmanship at the finishing hole has me falling into the "don't care for him" crowd.  Combine that with a recent interview about his want to be part of the Ryder Cup Team and how he "would bring so much with all his novel ideas" was, well, a bit hard to stomach.

I generally like Dechambeau because I approach life similarly. I am very analytical in my approach to all things.

That being said, I think he showed very poor sportsmanship. He let his emotions get the best of him. I hope he regrets what he did. He is always a very emotional player and that manifested itself in a poor way. I think he will grow, learn, and mature from this.

Hopefully he reached-out to the winner before he left the grounds, or has called since. Dude's pretty pompous. He's a big fan of himself...

If i were the EuropeanTour I'd send PR and BD home and tell them to never come back. What a pathetic display of sportsmanship.

 

First the “change.... get the heck out of here”. Then BD... ruining a perfectly good event with some whiners. Go home and get ina Time out you two.

Yeah, that Reed tantrum was shitty as well.

I certainly look forward to all spectators at Le Golf National to rattle the change in their pockets when he's on.

Anyone who has never let their frustrations get the better of them on the course please raise your hand?

 

I thought so.

 

The guy is human.  Every single week I am finding a thread about how much we dislike this guy or how much we think this guy is a toolshed.  Lighten up a bit Frances.  He's playing golf against the best talent in the world to pay not only his bills right now but also for his future livelihood.  

 

I will gladly allow him to let his emotions get the better of him, especially since he's a gentleman 99% of the time.

Yeah, I get frustrated. But not publicly on TV week after week.

 

The kids like him, so when he acts like this (just like Tiger in his day) what do you think kids do?

 

Not everyone gets a trophy in this game, his time will come, he's an amazing talent.

It doesn't excuse his behavior. Let's just agree that any decent person who sees this can acknowledge that it's wrong. That's my point, any decent human knows this is wrong. The kids playing golf, keeping honest scores and playing with integrity can differentiate right from wrong.

Yeah, I'll give you that. I really liked him when I saw him at the Masters for the first time. Interesting and good for golf. Just like Rahmbo they'll grow out of it I hope.

Yeah, no doubt, they are all human and have emotions.  My point is that Bryson keeps doing things that has him trending out of favor with PGA fans.  Throwing clubs, etc. is one thing, but the lack of professionalism on 18 was really poor form.

It's so much easier to fall out of favor with fans by doing this. Hopefully his caddy and agent can help him keep perspective.

Thanks.  I hadn't seen his follow up apology.

I've done my fair share of cursing and club throwing. I'm older and wiser now ( ok maybe just older 😁😂🤣). Hopefully they both will mature more and get it out of their system.

Like you guys, I want to see DeChambeau grow out of these temper tantrums. But I can't say that I'm optimistic he will, for this reason: essentially everything about his entire approach to golf depends on him proving that his way is at least as good, if not better, than the way everyone else does it. And he's been very successful doing this: as I post this, he's sixth on the Tour money list.

 

That is not a recipe for listening to others and learning. Again, I want to be wrong. Like several others here, I like how Bryson approaches the game. I often find him fascinating, and when I don't he's at least amusing.

 

But sportsmanship means a great deal to me. I hope he figures it out.

two guys that are full of themselves and  I don't care for: BD and Rhombo. When they miss a putt it's like the whole world conspired against them

Thanks! I watched the video in the article and sometimes I take a bit of perverse joy in watching these guys implode - maybe it makes them more human? It would be nice if they "took it like a man", but I recognize I didn't take failure too well at that age either.

Like Sergio over the past 10 years... and Rory and Jordan the past year?

 

Today's players are generally like that; come out on tour and do well early, then expect to keep up the pace and get frustrated when it doesn't work that way.  It's not the gentleman's game that it was back in the day.

I don't have particular favorites and I don't root against any player. But there are (only) two players who I could care less if they ever win, and DeChambeau is one of them for me after I saw him act like a spoiled child at the BMW Championship @ Conway Farms last year, Friday #11. After acting like a 3 year old because he bogied the hole, he then took it out on his caddy - inexcusable in my view.

 

I just chuckled when I saw his meltdown yesterday, karma's a ******...
