Presidents Cup 2022: Golf Twitter had plenty of Bryson DeChambeau jokes after Davis Love III expertly handled a gallery rope

September 22, 2022

The "Cap(tain) Cam" was unveiled as a new feature of the TV coverage of the Presidents Cup on Thursday. And although it left many wondering what its exact point is, at least it wound up providing the most unintentionally funny moment of the day.

That was when U.S. captain Davis Love III successfully—and frankly, easily—navigated a gallery rope at Quail Hollow. While he was driving his cart. And somewhere, we hope Bryson DeChambeau was taking notes.

Not surprisingly, Golf Twitter was quick to drag DeChambeau, who went viral for getting clotheslined by a gallery rope at last week's LIV event. Just as they were quick to drag him when it actually happened. Here's a sampling:

OK, so it actually wasn't unintentionally funny if you listen to NBC Sports' Dan Hicks describe the moment in the clip: "Well, Davis Love III on our Cap Cam, everything's going right for him because even when he's dealing with the ropes, he's got no problem with it." Yeah, that's clearly another shot at DeChambeau, who is not at this week's PGA Tour event because he defected to LIV Golf.

And we can all laugh at #Ropegate even more because even Bryson (finally) made fun of himself for the embarrassing fall.

Anyway, don't ever say Cap Cam didn't add anything to the coverage.
