Bryson DeChambeau asks someone to talk quieter after chip shot: ‘sound travels’


Rob Carr

Despite having one of the better seasons of his career on the golf course, Bryson DeChambeau hasn't gained many fans. In fact, he may have lost many that he had thanks to CameraGate, CameraGate part two and AntGate

Fortunately for DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka took much of the attention off him with his comments on Saturday night at the PGA Championship. Suddenly, Koepka was Golf Twitter's No. 1 sworn enemy.  

Well, was. The spotlight is now glaring right back in DeChambeau's direction thanks to an incident on Thursday at TPC Boston. DeChambeau, who opened the Northern Trust with an even par 71, was caught on a hot mic asking someone if they'd mind "talking a little quieter over there, please." OK, fine, he said please, and he's far from the first tour pro to ask someone to lower their voice during a shot. 

But then DeChambeau dropped a line that was practically begging to be mocked. "I can hear you all the way over there, sound travels." Oh boy: 

Science, or something. 

What's particularly perplexing is that these events are still fanless, and we doubt he was talking to a cameraman. Perhaps it was one of those pesky members of the media. 

Not surprisingly, the Bryson haters were out in full force: 

DeChambeau, who is ranked fourth in the FedEx Cup standings, is one-over par early in his second round at TPC Boston.
