Justin Thomas BURNS "Mr Physics" Bryson DeChambeau over driver comment

Justin Thomas was one of a number of golfers to criticise Bryson DeChambeau over his choice of words about his Cobra driver at The Open on Thursday. 

While Thomas did not tweet about DeChambeau's "the driver sucks" comment, he did drop a comment on @ZireGolf's Instagram post.

"Never would've thought swinging at 135+ mph it'd be hard to drive it straight," wrote Thomas, who carded a 67 on Friday to move to 1-under par for the tournament but 10 shots off the pace. 

"You'd think mr physics would know that!"

After hearing about DeChambeau's criticism of his Radspeed driver, Cobra Tour rep Ben Schomin did not hold back in his thoughts. 

"Everybody is bending over backwards," Schomin told Golfweek.

"We’ve got multiple guys in R&D who are CAD’ing (computer-aided design) this and CAD-ing that, trying to get this and that into the pipeline faster. (Bryson) knows it.

"It’s just really, really painful when he says something that stupid."

DeChambeau, who apologised for his comments via a post on Instagram, carded a level-par 70 on day two to narrowly make the cut mark on the number.

Interestingly, he used a Cobra Radspeed driver but in a different version.
