Augusta, Georgia-If missing the fairway is not enough for Bryson DeChambeau to redial the fairway from the tee in Augusta National Park (Augusta National), he will be on Friday Find another one in the second round of the Masters.
With a birdie on the second hole of the par 5 and pushed him to 3 under par, De Chambeau took an aggressive angle on the tee of the par 4 third hole.
DeChambeau is the leader in the distance of the game, and his serve is so high and difficult that he apparently penetrates the rain-soaked grass field.
At one point, at least 15 people were looking for the ball-without any luck.
“How about drinking water?” He asked a rules official.
The rule official explained: “But it’s not random water.”
De Chambeau then suggested that his ball may have landed on the ground designated for repair.
DeChambeau said: “So what you are saying is that if we know for sure that it is in the area and is under repair, then there is nothing we can do.”
The rules official explained to DeChambeau that he was not sure that was where his ball landed because he could not find it.
De Chambeau jumped into the golf cart and drove back to the tee to hit the ball. He hit almost the same spot on the second teeing ground, then blasted the chips on the green, failed to ups and downs, and scored a triple bogey 7.
He also swallowed the fourth hole of the par 3, which dropped his score to one point, one shot worse than expected.
This is not the first time DeChambeau has sought relief under suspicious circumstances. At the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational held in Memphis, Tennessee in July, he was unsuccessful in arguing that his ball was sitting near a fire ant mountain or in an animal hole dug.
In the memorial two weeks ago, De Chambeau found a ball he had lost under a metal fence, but failed to argue that the ball was still within range. He asked for a second opinion, which is the same. He swallowed a five bogey 10 on the hole, but failed to cut in.
