Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Cantlay had an incredible showdown in Sunday’s final round of the BMW Championship, one that was eventually won by Cantlay with a birdie putt on the sixth playoff hole.
The two stars, who will be a part of the U.S. Ryder Cup team next month, were paired together in the final group on Sunday and traded blows throughout the round.
But there was one awkward moment when DeChambeau stepped away from an approach shot on the 14th hole and asked Cantlay to stop walking because he apparently caught him out of the corner of his eye and it was bothering him.
Here’ the moment, which was followed by Cantlay walking in a long birdie putt:

“He just wanted me to stop walking,” Cantlay said. “We had just been told by the rules officials to kind of speed up, and I’m not always the fastest walker, so I was trying to get ahead and do my part. No big deal. That stuff kind of happens every once in a while out here.”
Is it annoying when someone is walking in your line of sight when you’re trying to hit a golf shot? Yes. Could Bryson have been a little cooler with the way he asked Cantlay to stop walking? Yes.
It’s also annoying when you’re in a group with DeChambeau and are asked by a rules official to speed things up, which happens way too often.
Twitter had reactions on yet because when DeChambeau does something like this people are going to have reactions.
