Bryson DeChambeau sparked controversy with his very first shot at the Ryder Cup by hitting a spectator on the ankle. The American big-hitter pulled his drive on the first hole of his Friday fourballs round into the crowd, with some saying he did not shout ‘fore’ after taking his shot.

DeChambeau has been dogged by controversy in the build up to this tournament, due to his high-profile spat with Team USA team-mate Brooks Koepka.

He will have hoped to perform well and keep a low profile as he began his first round in the Friday afternoon fourballs, but the American incurred the wrath of his critics with his very first shot at Whistling Straits.

The Texan stepped up to the tee to a huger roar from the American fans gathered around the first hole, ready to hit his first ball of the competition after being left out of the morning’s foursomes matches.

But instead of finding the fairway with his huge drive, DeChambeau pulled his effort to the left, hitting the ankle of a woman who was sat on the grass at the side of the course.
