Now Bryson DeChambeau is upset about some ants. Obviously
I was a little bit bored watching the 3M Open last week. No disrespect to winner Michael Thompson, a fine golfer and even finer human, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. It took just a few holes of the watching the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational for me to work it out. Bryson DeChambeau.
No Bryson, no party. He really is the gift that keeps on giving. Just when you think he hasn’t got anything more to give, here he comes to fall out with someone again, whether it’s a cameraman, or Brooks Koepka, or a rules official.
This time? It’s ants.
Fire ants, to be precise. Whatever they are. Any Americans want to help me out?
Anyway, it’s late, I’m tired, you’re tired, and you probably (definitely) don’t want to read words, so here is the whole five-and-a-half-minute incident in full.
If you’re hoping to find out what the fuss was about, I have no idea. (I’ll get our rules expert, Steve Carroll, on the case as soon as possible.) All I know is rules officials must play Rock, Paper, Scissors to decide who has to go and deal with him.
In the meantime stay tuned for next week’s edition where DeChambeau will be starting a fight in an empty room.
