Augista, Ga. – Bryson DeCambo was specific on Tuesday about his long-driving plans, having been eliminated from Augusta National Golf Club for the Masters tournament since 1934. For sports lovers who are not for golf, here are some references:
What something DeChambeau envisions is to kick a 75-yard field goal. Or drive a 650-foot house. Half-court shot shooting with ease of free-throw. Now imagine doing those things 14 times in a row in the middle of a singles major competition.
That’s it Fleshy When he landed the Eastern Round at 7:33 am on Thursday, Dembeau planned to win over the Masters. This does not mean DeChambo will shoot a record low score, but regular viewers of golf’s most-watched event may see some things they’ve never seen before. And since DeKhambo has been remarkably accurate with his toering drive in this week’s practice round, it is worth noting that he is the favorite betting to win the United States Open in September with his second major golf championship at the Masters. There is also a line.
On Tuesday, the occasional, number-driven DeChambu, who has gained 40 pounds in the last year and anywhere from 30 to 70 yards on his drive, went through the hole with his plans for Augusta National.
He left the par-3 hole, because, let’s face it, what’s the point of talking about small challenges? DeChambeau only gets bigger and plans to bomb T-bombs on 100-foot-high cedar trees to cut corners at the 510-yard hole. Or, consider the 445-yard first hole, which is completely tough and has been played this week in wet, soft grass conditions that strictly prevent a roll of tee shot.
Polygamous pro golfer, at least for everyday. Not Dechambo-Flex.
He hopes to have only 60 yards left on his second shot in the first hole. This is a rather simple shot for anyone out there. On the second hole, DeChambo said that in the practice round he is hitting a 7-iron for his second shot, which is 5 yards, which is 575 yards long. Keep in mind that many other golfers in the field will be hitting wood and hoping to land on that green.
Third hole of 350 yards? Piece of cake; He is driving from the tee. 495-yard fifth hole? Well, it is playing in the air so he had to sit on a 9-iron for his second shot. Bummer that is not even a nail.
And then on Tuesday it tickled as Dechameau how easily Augusta could reach the national greens. For him.
DeChambeau has big plans for the most important and usually challenging, final hole of the course. A pitching wedge for 11th Green, same thing for 510-yard, par-5 13 hole. He plans an 8-iron in par-5s. And the famous 18th hole?
DeChambeau figures to blow the bunkers on the left, an old trick from 1991 Masters champion Ian Vusnam, leaving the hole just dozens of yards short 29 years ago. So, what’s the use of that modern, long-standing strategy?
DeChambeau with a bush said: “I can only be 110 yards.” Like, another nail.
His contemporaries are on the gag and know what’s coming. World number three golfer Justin Thomas played practice rounds with DeKambo on Monday.
“It’s a very easy golf course for everyone,” Thomas said with a laugh. “I’m sure my T-shots are opposing me distance-wise.”
Thomas was asked why he bothered to play practice rounds with DeKambo. Wouldn’t it be better for his psyche to avoid the image of DeChambeau’s soaring tee shots?
“I mean, I’ve seen it before, it’s not like I’ve never played with him,” Thomas said. “It just confirmed what I already knew.”
And then Thomas added another possibility.
“Once he starts messing with the driver for that long and he has a little more free time,” he said, “then the more crazy you can be, the more able to hit it. is.”
DeChambeau is practicing with a driver, who has a 48-inch shaft, the longest in the rules. The standard length on the PGA Tour is approximately 45 and one-half inches. A longer shaft can mean higher swing speeds and longer shots, although the ball is harder to travel directly.
Still, DeChambeau did not unveil its 48-inch driver this week. As of Thursday afternoon, he was still testing it at practice limits. With a longer shaft, he had increased his swing speed to 144 mph. Most recreational golfers struggle to cross over 90 mph.
“I mean, it’s really promising right now,” DeChambeau said of the driver. “I didn’t expect that I would work tomorrow.” But it worked yesterday. I’m not 100 percent sure if I won’t keep it in the game yet
Lots of decisions for the man who has been the focus of all discussions prior to the 2020 Masters. And then there will be hundreds of options as DeChambeau picks up the rows of making, which Augusta puts on Augusta National Greens, where the tournament is customarily won or lost.
DeChambeau is aware.
“When it comes to putting down and chipping out,” he admitted.
Then, it was talking about the Garguan Drive. Because no one talks about 25-yard field goals, 300-foot home runs or 20-foot jump shots.
