US open official have handed down a harsh punishment to Bryson DeChambeau officially disqualifying him from…

Bryson DeChambeau claimed victory at the US Open at Pinehurst, but before his final round he was having his equipment called into question by a PGA Tour caddie

Veteran PGA Tour caddie Kip Henley encouraged Bryson DeChambeau’s rivals to ask the USGA whether he was breaking the rules during his US Open triumph.

DeChambeau, 30, had a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay and Matthieu Pavon heading into the final round at Pinehurst. But to Henley’s trained eye, his putter’s shaft looked vertical and did not appear to lean away from the head enough.

Henley, 64, also claims that PGA Tour players have accidentally used non-conforming clubs before. The long-time looper likewise clarified that the USGA would need a search warrant before they could check the specification of DeChambeau’s putter.

Henley caddied for the late Grayson Murray last year before they parted ways at the end of the season. But watching NBC’s television coverage at home in the United States, he pulled up DeChambeau for a potential violation issue.
