If this keeps up Bryson DeChambeau is going to need to invest in a helmet. Paige Spiranac continues to slam the 27-year-old on and offline. This time, the social media star hit DeChambeau for his less-than-stellar first round at The Masters on Thursday.
DeChambeau finished 18 shots behind 2020 Masters champion Dustin Johnson but said he’d learned a lot and had a good plan of attack for Augusta National this year. People believed him, as he entered the tournament tied for best odds to leave wearing a green jacket. But things didn’t go according to plan for DeChambeau in the opening round.
He finished four over par for the day and 11 shots off the lead.
Former golfer Spiranac, who loves trolling DeChambeau, made sure to remind him of his confident statements ahead of the tournament.
It’s the second time this week she’s gone after DeChambeau. After a video of him demolishing balls off the tee in practice went viral, most commenters were in awe of his power. Spiranac less so.
She retweeted the video with the caption, “Less of this and more replaying the 2019 Masters,” referring to Tiger Woods’ dramatic Masters’ victory.
Paige Spiranac: I Can Respect Him, Still Dislike Him
Paige Spiranac took serious issue with Bryson DeChambeau’s comments after he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month. He said Tiger Woods texted to congratulate him. This was only a couple of weeks since Wood’s near-fatal car crash.
“It means the world to me,” DeChambeau said of the win, according to the New York Post. “I got a text from Tiger this morning, and he obviously had done really well here and was very instrumental in Mr. Palmer’s life as Mr. Palmer was to Tiger. We just talked about just keep fighting no matter what happens, play boldly, like Mr. Palmer said. My heart has been heavy with Tiger and what’s been going on with him, just kept telling myself, it’s not how many times you get kicked down, it’s about how many times you get picked back up and keep going.”
Spiranac tweeted she didn’t like him name-dropping Woods and felt his comments were disingenuous. Then she made her feelings clear.
“I can respect Bryson and still find him annoying,” she said.
