Golf Fans Were Delighted After Bryson DeChambeau's Tin Cup Meltdown Last Night

It's fair to say Bryson DeChambeau isn't making many friends on the PGA Tour these days. The American golfer, who is ranked 5th in the world, has never been the most popular member of the Tour, known for his slow play and regular outbursts.

Since the return of the PGA Tour from lockdown though, DeChambeau has raised even more eyebrows than normal. His physical transformation, putting on 20 lbs of muscle in the last eight months, has given him significant power and club speed increase, meaning he's become an insanely long hitter.

Two weeks ago, DeChambeau won for the sixth time of his career at the Rocket Mortgage Classic but made more headlines for his clash with a cameraman at the tournament, claiming being filmed was hurting his brand.

On the back of all that, DeChambeau was once again the centre of attention at this week's Memorial Tournament in Ohio, and there was a lot of schadenfreude about when he had a complete meltdown at the 15th hole, finally scoring a five over part 10 for the hole. Naturally, DeChambeau missed the cut.

As part of the epic meltdown, he hit two balls out of bounds, one into a penalty area, and hit a 3-wood from the rough three times. He also got into a petulant argument with a match referee about an out of bounds ruling.

In the end, he could barely even count up what he scored on the hole.

On the next hole, it appeared Bryson's caddy was also not happy about being filmed again.

These kind of meltdowns can obviously happen to any player, but there certainly seemed to be a lot of enjoyment out there for this one.
