Eddie Pepperell Apologizes after Calling Bryson DeChambeau a ‘twit’

golf

Eddie Pepperell is offering an apology just two days after calling Bryson DeChambeau a ‘twit’.

Following a video that surfaced on Friday night of DeChambeau taking more than 2 minutes to hit an 8-foot putt, Pepperell had some choice words for DeChambeau where 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.”

Tour players and fans piled on the comment that was part of severe backlash directed to DeChambeau on social media.

DeChambeau told reporters at The Northern Trust after seeing Pepperell’s comments, “Eddie Pepperell, not fair to say. I would love to speak to him personally and talk about it.”

Pepperell took a step back on Monday morning. He felt bad about the particular name-calling but maintained that he wasn’t sorry for his overall point.

Pepperell tweeted, “Seems my comment regarding Bryson’s slow play has garnered plenty of attention and I just want to sincerely apologize to Bryson for being personal and referring to him as a ‘twit’. That was unnecessary and something I shouldn’t have said.”

DeChambeau has not yet responded to the tweet.
