    Yes, if he was from Fort Worth or Jacksonville or Seattle.
    He will get a pass in the end.

    Seems a certain percentage of Ping's professional staff falls somewhere on the personality disorder spectrum.

    I'm not sure that Louis Oosthuizen's inordinate love of tractors counts as a personality disorder...

    Speaking for my father in law. There is a line with tractor love. Lol. You wouldn’t believe the tractor love sub culture that exists.

    There are a number of golfers I have absolutely no use for and number #1 on the list is one Jordan Speith. He is always talking, talking, whining, whinning. And blaming his caddie as recently demonstrated by his outburst where he yelled at Michael, two perfect shots, Michael, two perfect shots, implying that he got the yardage wrong.

    So why is he not getting roasted over social media?

    Number #2 is A tie between Sergio and Bubba Watson, both complete head cases who love to blame their caddies for everything.

    So is mister Wallace on my list, not yet but he could be.

    Jordan talks to himself. It's a technique he learned from Dr. Marty Seldman, a pioneer in the craft of self-talk.

    "You can make this shot, Jordan."
    or
    "This is a big carry, Jordan."

    See the difference?

    I'm a big Wallace fan. One of my friends went to the same college as him and told me to keep an eye out on him and the progression he has made the last 2-3 years has been incredible. That said, his behaviour does leave a lot to be desired of at times. I am sure that he himself realises it, his thoughts after the British Masters would seem to confirm that. It's all a learning process.

    Looking at it from a slightly different perspective though, the first thing that I thought of when I saw the images was what was known as the Sir Alex Ferguson hairdryer treatment. He was renowned for losing his cool and that he did became stuff of legend. I am sure that he mellowed as he got older but it's all but certain that his behaviour went above and beyond what was called for on occasion. Wallace's did here but surely he will learn from it.

    He hasn't yet even though he admits it's a problem. It's not like we are talking about an 18 year old kid.

    I get that. By the same token in the last year or so he has gone from a golfing back water to being a Top 25 player. The amount of eyes on him has clearly increased significantly with expectations on his golf increasing at the same time. It's a first world problem but the pressure on him is more than it used to be and some people don't do well under pressure especially when they are not used to it.

    Thats not a first world problem, its an excuse. Dont do well under pressure? Not used to it? Is he new to golf? Just started playing for a living? Come on man.

    At times Matt Wallace makes it very difficult to like him. He's constantly berating his caddy and its my belief that his on-course attitude is a big obstacle for him. He wastes ridiculous amounts of mental energy with histrionics complaining about anything and everything that he perceives as a bad break or hasn't worked out as he planned.
    In fairness to the player he has acknowledged this publicly and is on record as saying he is working on it but I see zero signs of improvement at all.
    Despite all that Wallace is clearly a player on the rise and financially speaking it would be a lucrative bag to be on.

    I think he may be on the spectrum, just watch his interviews they are always a wee bit odd

    He just picked up his own bag for the caddy. Message received hopefully.

    If you watch the Round with Radar video you get a better feel for him as a person. I think he is a little shy but highly competitive and hates losing. All in all probably a good combination for losing the plot occasionally!!!!

    3:19 - I hit a nice shot, I've just gone long. I blame the caddy...." LOL
    There's probably a greater possibility for player blow ups these days as they seem to rely WAY more on caddies than ever before. I hear interviews with players from the Nicklaus era basically saying their caddies were there to keep up and shut up so to speak. Nowadays it's a "team" deal so I could see them being a bit peeved when the caddie makes a mistake. Still really no excuse to publicly berate the guy - plenty of time to do that not in front of the cameras and crowds.

    I have images of them rolling around on the ground, trading blows over whether it’s a 4 or 5 iron.
