A social media firestorm that broke out on Saturday after the American was filmed taking a grotesque two minutes, 16 seconds to complete a simple 8ft putt - adding insult to injury, he even missed it - developed into something more on Sunday as several players sought him out, including the increasingly vocal world No 1, Brooks Koepka.

Blithely ignoring the rules but somehow avoiding any punishment, the man dubbed the Mad Scientist turned into the Evil Genius in the eyes of many of his peers. Playing partner Justin Thomas had his say while, on Twitter, everyone from Ian Poulter to Lee Westwood rightfully joined in the condemnation. As for fellow Englishman Eddie Pepperell, he characteristically took no prisoners.

Referring to DeChambeau's two playing partners, Tommy Fleetwood and former USPGA Champion Thomas, he tweeted: 'Just look at Tommy and Justin, both looking completely bored. Slow players do this to their playing partners, making the game less enjoyable. Problem is, the unaffected, single-minded twit in this instance doesn't care much for others.'

Operation Banner: 50 years since British Army campaign started in N Ireland

Operation Banner: 50 years since British Army campaign started in N Ireland It was the beginning of the lengthiest continuous campaign in British military history. Operation Banner lasted from August 1969 to July 2007 and cost 722 soldiers’ lives following paramilitary attacks. Northern Ireland’s Government at Stormont had urged the UK to deploy troops after sustained violence wore out police officers. Soldiers on the streets, at checkpoints or in vehicles on patrol in support of the police provided a ready target for a nascent Provisional IRA pre-eminent amongst the republican factions.

Bryson DeChambeau ' s slow play at the Northern Trust is angering fans, broadcasters, and pros, with one pro even calling him out on Twitter. With playing partners waiting in the fairway and around the green, DeChambeau slowly walked on a direct line from his ball, down a hill, then up another and

Predictably, DeChambeau reacted like most people do when told they're too slow - badly. Displaying an astonishing lack of self-awareness, he claimed: 'It's really unfortunate the way it's perceived because there's a lot of other guys that take a lot of time. I'm not a slow player.'

Presumably, Koepka put DeChambeau straight after making a beeline for him on the practice putting green. On Pepperell's stinging criticism, DeChambeau added:'When you start personally attacking people on Twitter, it's like, show some b*lls and speak to me to my face.'

Thomas admitted that he wished he had. 'I should have said something to him in person,' said the American. 'I like Bryson as a person but he's a slow golfer. A lot of people that I like are slow. They need to play faster.'

Bryson DeChambeau had a lot to say about getting crushed on social media for being a slow player. “Let’ s talk about slow play , guys,” a clearly fired- up DeChambeau said, launching into a That' s not fair.” Bryson DeChambeau is interviewed during the practice round of the Northern Trust

They almost certainly would if one stroke penalties were applied, a point made by Keopka. He was visibly frustrated playing in the final round of the Open with another tortoise - JB Holmes - and kept up the verbals.

'What I don't get is that if I hit the ball in the water, that's a one stroke penalty,' he said. 'And then you have 40 seconds to hit a shot. That's in our rule book too. So why can't the rules officials figure it out and penalize slow play.'

The problem is that players are given two warnings after they get a bad time before the one stroke penalty applies, and by that stage the slow and the inconsiderate have suddenly decided they can play quicker after all.

'I think the guys that are slow get too many chances,' McIlroy said. 'If you're put on the clock, that should be your warning. Another bad time, it should be a penalty. That would stamp it out right away.'

Arguments about slow play have been raging for 30 years but, with the two best players demanding action, perhaps something might finally get done.

Bryson DeChambeau ’ s ‘egregious’ slow play is driving people crazy at the Northern Trust . Among the more vocal and forceful critics was pro golfer Eddie Pepperell, who responded to one of the videos by calling DeChambeau an “unaffected single minded twit ” who “doesn’t care much for others.”

As Luke Donald tweeted: 'Slow play in golf is nothing new but, with social media and tv, it's being exposed to a new level. This seems like the perfect time to do something about it. C'mon people, let's figure it out!'

Regarding the Northern Trust event, Reed held off a faltering Jon Rahm and Mexican Abraham Ancer to claim his first victory since the 2018 Masters. McIlroy and Justin Rose began with hopes of winning, before settling for top ten finishes after rounds featuring too many mistakes.
