Bryson DeChambeau might be near the top of the leaderboard at the PGA Championship, however, on Thursday, he also made headlines for a brutal errant tee shot that stung a PGA Professional!
Kenny Pigman landed on the receiving end of a wicked tee shot by DeChambeau at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester. SportsCenter provided video of the erring shot, which smoked Pigman in the back, near his right arm and shoulder.

Pigman appeared to be okay after the shot, but it certainly couldn’t have been on his radar to be hit like that. Obviously, it was an accident, but an embarrassing moment nonetheless.
As expected, the moment went viral after it happened. SportsCenter’s video has fetched over 220,000 views and hundreds of shares.
“Proper golf content let’s keep this stuff going,” a fan tweeted.

“Glad they decided to LIV and let LIV,” one fan joked. DeChambeau, of course, plays on the LIV Golf tour. Although last week he dropped his name from the active lawsuit.

One fan pondered, “Has Bryson DeChambeau ever just played a normal round of golf?” It’s a fair question to ask. Especially after this latest incident.

Meanwhile, someone had an interesting idea for Kenny Pigman: Doing competition BBQ. With a name like that…

Needless to say, it was an eventful 18th hole at the PGA Championship especially when Bryson DeChambeau blasted his tee shot.
