  • He wanted to go to the other side of the fence and do what, tap it out a couple of inches or feet? He's taking a stroke regardless. It was a strange hole. I must admit he is an interesting dude.

      Wasn't it the ball from one of his earlier shots though? So at least 2 or 4 strokes less and all he had to do was move it a couple of feet to get it back in play. I couldn't follow which ball ended up where - could it have been is original ball?

      • That definitely wasn't his defining moment. I get the stupid choices as he's 26 and has a lot to learn/control. I also get why he wanted a perfect ruling on the ball under the fence as that would have saved him 2 strokes and who knows what would have transpired after that. What he needs to focus on is not taking out his frustrations on others and own his actions. He also ticks a different way and is so smart he's probably not use to being on that end of a wrong.

              Agreed. He was worried about some ants?! He got a bad lie and wanted an official to legitimize cheating. Nice to see him double bogey the hole.
              On the other hands it looks like Brooks Koepka has recovered from his knee injury.

                  Increased testosterone levels, as discussed, can lead to temporary and sudden outbreaks of anger, poor judgement and/or risk taking. That usually blow over quickly.

                  Has Mr. DeChambeau exhibited any of these since the resumption of the PGA season?

                    • I'm glad I wasn't the only one watching him try different angles to get a ruling....you have to start to question his ethics when he pursues the burrowing animal option, especially when it doesn't even interfere with his intended swing/stance

                        He's a guy who's shown he'll go to great lengths to gain what he perceives to be any competitive advantage. It then follows that he'd approach the rules of the game in a similar fashion. I don't like it but he isn't the first to do it.

                        • Agreed, but the line between competitive advantage and adhering to the integrity of the game are getting very blurred...agree he isn't the only one pushing the boundaries though.

                            Matt Kuchar comes to mind!
                            It's fine to ask the referee for a ruling and a Rules interpretation, and ask some clarifying questions, but when it crosses the line when showing disdain for the decision and/or trying to extend the boundaries of the situation to possibly achieve a favourable outcome. The PGATour referees are very good at their profession.

                              It's sad. Golf is supposed to be a game of integrity. For some that seems to be disappearing.

                              • Is it my imagination or does he look a little less 'fit' than he did the first couple of weeks after the Tour resumed?
