Earlier this weekend, star golfer Bryson DeChambeau drew critics from every corner of the globe with his slow pace of play at the Northern Trust.
A video of DeChambeau, who is known as one of the most analytical players on tour, hit social media and it didn’t take long for his fellow golfers to comment on his game.
The video showed Dechambeau taking significantly longer than he should to make a putt.
Justin Rose, Joel Dahmen and Eddie Pepperell called out DeChambeau for his actions on the course.
It was Pepperell who delivered the most-significant blow. The Englishman called DeChambeau a “single-minded twit.”
“Just look at Tommy [Fleetwood] and Justin [Thomas], both looking completely bored. Slow players do this to their playing partners making the game less enjoyable. Problem is, the unaffected single minded twit in this instance, doesn’t care much for others,” Pepperell said of Dechambeau.

This wasn’t the first time he took heat for his slow play this weekend.
Another video, from Friday, shows him taking over three minutes to play a 70-yard pitch shot.
All of this comes on the heels of Brooks Koepka being outspoken against the slow pace of play he’s seen on the course this year.
