Bryson DeChambeau and controversy go hand in hand. Recently, DeChambeau failed to shout “FORE” after hitting an errant tee shot on day one of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational at TPC Southwind and is facing a lot of criticism for it.

However, DeChambeau then went onto score a solid round of 5 under 65. And he is currently just 3-shots behind the leader Harris English. And with just around one month to go until the Ryder Cup, England’s Ian Poulter carded an amazing -6. Moreover, Poulter is joined by Jim Harman, Carlos Ortiz, and Matthew Wolff on -6 after round one.

A journalist questioned Bryson DeChambeau just a few ago at the Open Championship as to why he fails to shout “FORE” after a wild shot. But he fired back at them, saying 99% of the time he yells “FORE.” The percentage is debatable, but it is of serious concern even for that 1%, as even one the ball can cause a lot of damage to the spectators if they aren’t aware of the ball flying towards them.

And unfortunately for DeChambeau, he did the same thing on the par-4 18th hole in Round 1 of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. He started on the 10th tee and progressed nicely to -3 as he stood on the 18th tee. And it was at this time when he wildly smoked his drive right into the gallery without shouting “Fore.”

European Tour player Richard Bland made a tweet about Bryson’s issue and said,” Bryson ploughing it into the crowd again off the tee & no shout of FORE. Maybe it needs someone to get seriously injured for him to learn.”

And this tweet had kind of mixed reactions, but the majority were criticizing Bryson DeChambeau. Here are a few reactions from Richard Bland’s comment section. 

While there were plenty of tweets criticizing him, others came in support of Bryson DeChambeau and put forth that he isn’t the only player who lacks this aspect on the golf course.
