PAIGE SPIRANAC reckons Bryson DeChambeau deserves “a lot of s**t” for his miserable Masters.
The female pro thinks US Open champion DeChambeau rubbed people up the wrong way and was overly confident headed into Augusta.
DeChambeau, 27, finished two under par – 18 shots behind eventual champion Dustin Johnson.
Speaking on her Playing a Round podcast, Paige admitted: “I was shocked by his play. I thought he was going to light the course up.
“Especially with the amount of confidence he had going into the tournament.
“Calling the Par at Augusta National a 67 at his press conference – that takes huge balls to say that.
“And the fact that he finished at two under – Bernhard Langer who is 63 years old and had a driving average of 250 yards beat Bryson DeChambeau.”
She added: “Bryson gets a lot of s**t and kind of deservedly.
He comes in overly confident. It’s his attitude and the way he approaches things.
I think you can come off being confident – Tiger always comes off being confident, Rory comes off confident.
“But he just comes off in a way that rubs people the wrong way and a lot of people root against Bryson.”
Paige previously congratulated DeChambeau on his US Open victory at Winged Foot in September.
She tweeted: “It’s fun to give Bryson s*** at times but you have to give him so much credit for sticking to his guns despite all the hate and now he gets to call himself a US Open Champion.
“Well deserved win.”
Speaking in July during the Memorial Tournament in Ohio, Spiranac blasted DeChambeau’s behaviour.
The social media personality slammed the 27-year-old for arguing with a PGA official about an out-of-bounds decision.
She said: “The way he acted to that rules official was so uncalled for and I think it just shows where his head space is at right now, where he thinks that he is literally pioneering the way that golf is being played.

“And so he is so far and beyond everyone else that he can tell a rules official, who their job is to know the rules inside and out.
“And for Bryson to say, ‘I don’t believe you, I need a second ruling.’ Who do you think you are?”
