Fellow pro calls out DeChambeau over latest no "Fore" shout

Bryson Dechambeau

Another day, another Bryson DeChambeau controversy.

Less than 24 hours after revealing he has not been nor has any plans to be vaccinated against COVID-19, the world No.7 was filmed not shouting 'Fore' following an errant tee shot in the opening round of the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational.

DeChambeau, 27, leaked his drive right on the 18th at TPC Southwind - his ninth hole of the day - with the ball appearing to fly straight into spectators lining the fairway.

Commentating on the tournament for Sky Sports Golf, you can hear former US PGA champion Rich Beem gasp "Oh gosh" and draw attention to the fact there had been no warning shout from DeChambeau. 

Needless to say, many on social media were infuriated by DeChambeau's latest antics, amongst them Richard Bland.

• DeChambeau says he "doesn't need" vaccine

• Scottish Open to join the PGA Tour from next year

The Englishman, who led the US Open after two rounds in June and won his maiden European Tour title at the British Masters in May, tweeted his dissatisfaction at Bryson's behaviour.

Plenty others weighed in, too...

DeChambeau bristled during last month's Open Championship when he was asked he doesn't shout 'Fore' after wild tee shots.

“I do shout ‘Fore’,” he contended. “I don't know what you're talking about. There are plenty of people on the tee box that do shout ‘Fore!’ 

• Could Rory Sabbatini play in the Ryder Cup?

"You're bringing up a very controversial thing, which is unfortunate. But 99 percent of the time I do [shout], and unfortunately people think I don't. But that's OK, they can say whatever they want.”

The 2020 US Open champion carded a five-under 65 to sit one shot off the early pace set by Jim Herman.
