LIV golfer Bryson DeChambeau is used to dealing with fans giving him stick on the golf course, but at LACC on Sunday, he snapped.

The American, who has divided opinion over his long drives, crazy diet, and scientific approach, all before jumping to LIV, caught a heckler timing him on a tee box.

DeChambeau was waiting for a green to clear during the final round when he decided enough was enough and hit back at the rowdy fan.

In a video posted by Beerholegolf on Tik Tok, the 2020 U.S. Open winner was caught on camera having a dig at the spectator.

Bryson DeChambeau asked: “Are you still timing? Because they just walked off the green buddy.

“You still timing? Ok, thank you.”

Slow play has come to a head in the world of golf recently, with fans growing increasingly impatient with players taking longer to play.

It appears the incident involved a fan using a stopwatch to prove his point about the length of time DeChambeau took for his tee shot.

A similar case was spotted earlier this year at Harbour Town when a fan timed Patrick Cantlay – a notoriously slower player who has stolen ‘slow play’ headlines this season.

But LIV rebel DeChambeau, who finished in a tie for 20th place in Los Angeles after a four-over-par 74 end to the week, had no other choice.

The Crushers GC captain pulled driver from his bag in an attempt to drive the green but was forced to wait as players in the group ahead tidied up their putts.

Understandably so, as despite radical changes to reduce his weight, DeChambeau still possesses fierce swing speed and driving distance.

The 29-year-old ranked fourth in the field at the third major of the year in total driving distance, averaging 326.6 yards off the tee, compared to the field average of 305 yards.
