This week, Bryson DeChambeau is leading the Porsche European Open on the European tour. Last week, he struggled to keep himself from exploding while on the range at the British Open. Welcome to golf, folks.
DeChambeau’s late-night range session on Thursday, July 19, was caught on camera by Golf Channel after he posted a first-round 75 at Carnoustie. The uber-talented 24-year-old was working himself into a fury, even so much as throwing his clubs around the range in disgust. Check it all out in the video below.
Not sure if this came out last week but last night was first time I saw it.

Clearly DeChambeau — who rallied to make the cut — was upset with himself but possibly just as clear is that he’s remedied whatever ailed him. He carded a 66 exactly one week after this bout, and followed that up with a 68 Friday to regain the 36-hole lead in Germany. Through 54 holes, he’s tied with Richard McEvoy at 12 under. Chasing after them is another testy pro: Patrick Reed, who got involved in his own on-camera bout earlier this week.
