Bryson DeChambeau is engaged in a second controversy following his comments about the Covid vaccine.
At the St. Jude Invitational, Bryson DeChambeau got himself into a lot of trouble.
Bryson DeChambeau finds himself embroiled in another controversy at the WGC Fed-Ex St. Jude Invitational after failing to yell fore once again after disclosing that he had denied the coronavirus inoculation last week.
DeChambeau competed in the World Golf Championship for the first time in three weeks after failing to qualify to represent his country at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games due to a positive Covid-19 test.
Before his return last week, the 27-year-old made headlines when he disclosed he had turned down a coronavirus vaccine because it “doesn’t stop you from getting the virus” and he didn’t want to “block people who needed it from getting it.”
Many people questioned DeChambeau’s vaccine position ahead of his tournament in Memphis, but this was just the beginning of an up-and-down week for the eight-time PGA Tour winner.
The American’s next misfortune came on the second day of last week’s tournament at TPC Southwind, when he was seen on camera sending his tee shot on the par four 18th way right into a crowd of spectators without a warning cry.
As a result, after a video of DeChambeau’s unsuccessful fore yell was released on social media by 2010 Ryder Cup participant Edoardo Molinari, both golf fans and fellow professionals jumped on his case.
“It shouldn’t be difficult to comprehend that you should ALWAYS shout “fore” when you hit a shot towards the people… @b dechambeau,” the Italian tweeted alongside the video.
When will someone take action to address this issue? Hopefully before someone in the audience is gravely injured!”
“Bryson hammering it into the crowd again off the tee & no yell of “FORE” maybe it takes someone getting gravely injured for him to learn,” another European Tour pro Richard Bland tweeted.
In addition, Bernd Wiesberger, a 2021 Ryder Cup candidate, believes DeChambeau should be penalized for his lack of warning with either penalty shots or expulsion from competition.
That shouldn’t be difficult to comprehend. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
