Bernd Wiesberger believes Bryson DeChambeau should face a FINE or even a DQ!

Bernd Wiesberger believes Bryson DeChambeau "should be fined" and even face the possibility of disqualification for once again failing to shout 'FORE' after hitting an errant shot at the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational. 

Wiesberger joined a growing number of Tour pros who are fed up seeing fellow players fail to shout 'FORE' out on the PGA Tour and European Tour on a seemingly regular basis.

While DeChambeau is not the sole perpetrator when it comes to avoiding shouts of 'FORE', he is certainly making it an ugly habit. 

DeChambeau was posed the question as to why he often fails to shout 'FORE' after hitting errant shots, to which he fired back at the journalist by saying he does shout 'FORE' at least "99% of the time" out on the PGA Tour. 


If recent evidence is anything to go by then that is certainly not the case given the big-hitting American said nothing at the US Open when ploughing his ball into a group of fans. 

He then did exactly the same thing at TPC Southwind this week.



Wiesberger, an eight-time winner on the European Tour, tweeted: "Horrendous. Should be fined just like slow play. Penalty shots and, if needed, DQ."

Sky Sports commentator Rich Beem was disgusted when saying at the time of the shot: "Oh my gosh, no shouts of 'FORE'."

Golf YouTuber Rick Shiels wrote on Twitter: "Thought he shouted 'FORE' all the time?"

European Tour pro Richard Bland said: "Bryson ploughing it into the crowd again off the tee & no shout of 'FORE' maybe it needs someone to get seriously injured for him to learn."

Despite this big talking point of the week, DeChambeau has been playing some fantastic golf and finds himself just two shots off the pace at 16-under par heading into the final round.
