Watch the moment Bryson DeChambeau BEATS his fellow pro golfer on the TEE with an improper shot in the USPGA Championship
BRYSON DECHAMBEAU hit fellow competitor Kenny Pigman with a miss at the USPGA Championship on Thursday.
The incident happened as Pigman was preparing to tee off on the 18th hole.
DeChambeau was presumed to have fired his second shot on the 17th, but he missed the target by a wide margin.
A “forward” call rang out to alert bystanders to the unpredictable ball, prompting Pigman to duck.
And he was lucky because the ball hit his back – otherwise it could have hit his head.
The American looked confused as he tried to figure out where the ball had come from.
DeChambeau later stopped by to apologize to his counterpart.
It comes a day after Joel Dahmen hit a fan with a miss at the same track.
The golfer apologized by gifting the fan $100 so he could buy some refreshments.
In the meantime, DeChambeau hopes the incident won’t distract him from what has been a great tournament so far.

The 29-year-old is four under par and leads the USPGA Championship ahead of Scottie Scheffler and Corey Conners.
The Californian showed off his slim figure this week after reportedly shedding the 40 pounds he gained during the Covid-19 pandemic.
DeChambeau, 29, gained weight to add extra power to his swing and extend his time on Earth.
The golfer started his day with a 2,000-calorie breakfast but stuck to his goal of “getting to be 130 or 140.”
Months later, he found that his body was severely inflamed — and that his diet was actually daunting his hopes for a long and healthy life.
