Jordan Spieth offers Bryson advice and reveals the player who gets heckled most

Published

on

Jordan Spieth was playing with Bryson DeChambeau when some golf fans decided to taunt the 27-year-old with shouts of “Brooksy” at Muirfield Village, and during the round he took the time to offer Bryson some salient advice.

The Texan is one of the most loved characters in the game, but when his form dipped on the course, Spieth told reporters at Memorial that he was the subject of abuse from hecklers.

“I’ve had people tell me I suck to my face for a long time, so I don’t — you know, I mean, nothing, you just kind of zone everything out.

The fans’ trolling of Bryson on Friday may not have been the most vicious, but Jordan had one wise piece of advice for DeChambeau: Don’t give them any reaction, or it will quickly escalate.

He (Bryson) mentioned it to me at one point and I said, ‘All anyone wants is a reaction and if you give it to them, it’s going to get worse.’ So it didn’t seem to bother him.”

Spieth also revealed the player he has played with that receives the worst abuse from golf fans, and perhaps not surprisingly, it’s the highly polarizing Patrick Reed.

“I feel like, as far as pairings go, I would say if you’re paired with Patrick you hear some of the worst stuff — Reed, not Cantlay — from the crowd.”

    Nobody likes a counter protester or counter stalker.

    Any yelling nonsense right after impact–gone.
    Any rude comments–gone.
    Any wishing the ball to go somewhere bad–gone.

    Each ticket holder gets a bracelet with 2 tear-off ration tags for alcohol. No tags, no beer.

    This is golf not baseball.

      Ok buddy, we don’t need to go to the opposite extreme. Somewhere in between will do.

      You have to live in Southern California , or New York. Get off your high horse and don’t talk down to us thinking you’re morally superior to everyone.

      This is why golf isn’t ruled just by people who yell at others to tuck in the back of their shirt

    I blame Phoenix for starting this trend. Fans should been seen, not heard.

    Escort abusers off of the premises. Don’t let golf turn into an NBA spectacle. Golf is one of the few sports that promotes both etiquette and a sense of decorum.

    Do you think this stuff would go on at Augusta? They would have a heckler off the premises in two minutes flat and his feet wouldn’t even touch the ground on the way out.

    This kind of behaviour, at all levels, would be unaccepted on the European Tour, LPGA, etc.

    The PGA needs to get this sorted, or they risk a huge incident.

    Fans who heckle are idiots in deep need of attention and relevancy.

Check out the plaque honoring Tiger Woods’ 2008 U.S. Open heroics at Torrey Pines

Published

on

Tiger Woods may not be at Torrey Pines this week, but the 15-time major champion will always be synonymous with the venue primarily because of his epic win at the 2008 U.S. Open.

The 45-year-old’s heroics that week at Torrey Pines will never be forgotten, as Woods defied all the odds on a fractured leg to win his 14th major.

To honor that victory, the USGA and city of San Diego will host a ceremony today, which will include the unveiling of a plaque celebrating Woods’ stunning 12-foot putt to force a playoff at the 2008 U.S. Open.

The ceremony will be hosted by San Diego mayor Todd Gloria, San Diego city council president Jennifer Campbell and United States Golf Association president Stu Francis and will take place at Torrey Pines’ 18th green.

Bryson on ‘Brooksy’ shouts: ‘I love it, I think it’s hilarious’

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau will begin the defence of his U.S. Open title tomorrow at Torrey Pines amid an ongoing feud with Brooks Koepka.

The 27-year-old began receiving the heckling shouts of “Brooksy” at the Memorial where it was reported that fans participating in the shouts were being removed from the course by security.

At Torrey Pines this week, Bryson has been discussing the “Brooksy” shouts as well as the fans involved, as the rivalry between the two shows no signs of cooling off.

“I’m always going to be trying to play my game and not really worry too much about what other people are doing. I think there are just times where, if it gets outside the scope of just integrity and honour, yeah, that can get a little interesting.

At the same point in time, all of it’s been good fun. It’s been fun. Shoot, to be honest, people saying Brooksy’s name out there, I love it. I think it’s hilarious.”

The pair have been kept apart for the opening two rounds of the event, much to the disappointment of many fans. However, Bryson is already thinking ahead to the weekend, where a blockbuster pairing could grab plenty of new eyeballs.

“There’s a point where it’s great banter,. I personally love it. I think that, as time goes on, I hope on the weekend we can play against each other and compete. I think it would be fun and would be great for the game.”
