At center of slow-play criticism, DeChambeau sounds off

  • American Bryson De Chambeau studies a putt in the third round of the US PGA Tour Northern Trust tournament

The PGA Tour has repeatedly insisted that it's working to improve the pace of play, but slow players like J.B. Holmes and DeChambeau continue to go unpunished.

But the 25-year-old American defended himself after the third round of the Northern Trust in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Slow play has become a big issue in the sport and players including four-time major victor Brooks Koepka have been open in their criticism of players who take too long over shots.

"When people start talking to me about slow play and how I'm killing the game, I'm doing this and that to the game, that is complete and utter you-know-what".

"It's really kind of unfortunate the way it's perceived because there's a lot of other guys that take a lot of time", DeChambeau said.

On the eighth hole in the same round at Liberty National, he took two minutes and 50 seconds to hit an eight-foot birdie putt while frustrated playing partners Justin Thomas and Tommy Fleetwood looked on.

Four-time major victor Brooks Koepka was among those criticising DeChambeau.

"I should have just said something to him in person".

England's Eddie Pepperell, sympathising with DeChambeau's playing partners, tweeted: "Slow players do this to their partners, making the game less enjoyable". He called DeChambeau a "single minded twit" and said he is not considerate of other players.

Ian Poulter felt sorry for a fan who said he had stopped watching golf due to the slow pace.

"There are a few players that continually disrespect their fellow pros and continue to break the rules without a conscience".

Pepperell, who is not playing the Northern Trust - the first of the PGA Tour's play-off events - added: "When it's as egregious as Bryson was [on Saturday], and if they're already behind, then shot penalties should be handed out. I didn't say anything on social media", Thomas said. The Tour also seems to reserve the right to time a player whenever it deems necessary.

Criticism of DeChambeau, who is known for his ponderous style, began after video of his second round on Saturday emerged on social media.

Should DeChambeau have been penalised for his slow play? "For me personally it is an attack and it is something that is not me whatsoever. Speak to me to my face about that".
