Bubba Watson Steams About Slow Play at 2015 US Open at Chambers Bay

Bubba Watson opened with a double bogey today at the 2015 US Open Championship at Chambers Bay near Tacoma, Washington. His frustration continued to mount as the pace of play slowed to a crawl.

Finally, he couldn’t take it anymore and teed up a ball in the middle of a fairway, shooting it straight into a Port-A-Potty, knocking it over with a man inside.

Is Bubba right to be upset? Here are some of the reasons for today’s slow play:

  • Henrik Stenson stopping along the gallery ropes to teach Swedish swear words to fans.
  • Dustin Johnson insisting on walking to his ball like he’s John Wayne.
  • Matt Kuchar making his caddie yell, “Kuch!” after every shot.
  • Francesco Molinari cooking 5-minute pasta meals between holes.
  • Jason Dufner getting so relaxed he falls asleep mid-swing.
  • Ernie Els constantly searching for his swing from the 90s.
  • Cody Gribble pushing his new dog food, “Gribble’s Kibbles.”
  • Patrick Reed using a the Cadillac Escalade he won at the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship as a golf cart.

Bubba Watson can get extra riled up at times, but when you look at these antics on the course today, you can see why he might have a good reason.
