19th Hole

What GolfWRXers are saying about Bryson DeChambeau’s rules argument at the Memorial Tournament



In our forums, our members have been discussing Bryson DeChambeau’s late collapse on Friday which saw the 26-year-old miss his first cut since golf’s restart.

DeChambeau twice hit the ball out of bounds from a poor lie with his three wood on the par-5 15th hole, and on his third attempt, DeChambeau’s ball ended up just short of the water.

The Californian then claimed one of his shots was not OB as it was underneath the fence. Rules official Slugger White stepped in to explain to DeChambeau why it was indeed OB, and it was a decision the golf scientist was clearly unhappy about, requesting a second ruling before saying “They are giving me a garbage ruling as usual”.

The ruling was not changed, and DeChambeau went on to make a 10 on the hole, ending his chances of playing the weekend.

Here are a few posts from our members on the incident, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • nitram: “Am I the only one who thought of Tin Cup when he hit his 5th and 7th shots???”
  • J13: “Him counting all 10 shots after putting out was great and so relatable. More please.”
  • widow-maker: “I was entertained. Hasn’t been much of that lately in the sports world. We need our antagonists to keep things from getting boring. Sergio, Poulter, Koepka, and Reed can’t do this on their own. Bryson spurs controversy, which spurs conversation. It’s good for the game in some sense. Tiger overshadowed the game for a long time as both protagonist and antagonist. You need colorful characters to have a good story. So many of these guys are like automatons out there.”
  • Pepperturbo: “The inside (golf course side) edge of the fence post is OB, so when a line is drawn between that portion and the next post, that determines if the ball is OB or not. Ball was OB.”

    Thinking behind the wood from the rough was the problem. He wasn’t going to reach the green in two, so why not lay up, hit the third on the green,, have a putt for birdie? Dumb course management, and his caddy should have spoken up.

    Pretty basic rule. Always amazing how poorly pros know the rules, nevermind amatuers. If Bryson spent 1/100th of the time studying the rules as he does studying everything else related to his game, then he’d know the rules well.

    He no doubt sees himself as some kind of misunderstood genius who has always gone his own way in the face of opposition from lesser minds. What the rest of us see though, is a supremely talented by spoiled rotten kid with little to no impulse control who is badly in need of a kick in pants and some tough love.

      I liked Bryson so it not everyone. Cookie cutter players and commentators are killing the sport.

      I like what Faldo called him after that incident. “De Shambles”. Looked to me that he was just wasting time because he knew he was out of the Tourney. Pretty sad when your playing partner has to watch that BS, no win situation with the ref.

        That’s a great example to set for young fans of golf – making fun of someone’s name. That’s grade-school nonsense. And we wonder why the world doesn’t improve. Faldo should know better. His name is bound to have been the target of some cruel homonyms over the years.

The Match 3: Mickelson/Barkley vs Curry/Manning – Full Viewer’s Guide



Capital One’s The Match: Champion’s for Change gets underway with this week, with two new additions joining the third edition of the contest. Phil Mickelson will team up with Charles Barkley, while Peyton Manning will return and this time pair up with current NBA star Steph Curry.

Ahead of the event, here’s a rundown of all the essential details you need to know about the contest

The Format

The format for The Match 3 is 18 holes of modified alternate shot. 

In this format, both players from each team will hit tee shots, and then swap balls for their approach shots (e.g. Mickelson will hit Barkley’s second shot and vice versa). Following the second shot, the teams will decide between which ball they want to play for their third.

How good are Barkley, Manning and Curry at golf?

We saw Peyton Manning perform well in The Match 2, and the former NFL quarterback plays off a 6.4 handicap index.

Having played on the formerly known Tour, Steph Curry is a very proficient golfer and plays off a 0.1 handicap index.

Charles Barkley’s handicap index is unknown, and his swing used to be a source of ridicule. However, Barkley has transformed his swing in recent years, and you can check out this small sample of his game from when he played the ‘Bogey or Better’ challenge at the 18th hole during the broadcast of The Match 2.

Location and Date

The event takes place Friday, Nov. 27 at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona.

Who will the event benefit?

The Match: Champion’s for Change will raise funds for historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

How to Watch

The event will be broadcast live on TNT this Friday, Nov. 27, from 3 PM ET. In addition, Bleacher Report will provide a “Cart Cam” stream – leading up to and during the event.

The Coverage

TNT’s live coverage of Capital One’s The Match will be hosted by Brian Anderson, who will provide play-by-play alongside Trevor Immelman and Andre Iguodala. Cheyenne Woods and Gary McCord will feature as on-course announcers for the event, while Eli Manning will be part of a pre-game show as well as “Cart Came” alongside LPGA legend Michelle Wie.
