Augusta, Georgia-On Thursday, Bryson DeChambeau finally put his teeing ground on the pine grass on the left side of the 14th fairway in Augusta National Park (Augusta National) .
Brownie Bryson turned his head and didn’t ask anyone in particular: “That’s obviously a tree, right?”
Yes, in the first round of the Masters, many balls in DeChambeau’s teeing ground did find wood or something other than the fairway.
DeChambeau was a betting favorite to participate in the first Masters in November. He was unable to keep the ball on the fairway and did not perform well on the green.
He ran wild in the first 18 holes, including birdies back-to-back in the last two holes to apply some ointment to his wounds to make his first round score less than 70 points (2 hits).
The disappointing start certainly did not make him withdraw from the game, and 54 holes were needed, but this was not his original intention. Especially after he suggested setting his par to 67 (5 strokes lower than the actual 72) earlier this week, because his newly discovered tee length allows him to hit 5 pars twice. .
One day after Augusta President Fred Ridley stated that the sport was “related to distance issues and it is at a crossroads”, De Chambeau’s boom and violent driving did not have him. As beneficial as others think.
Dechangbo said: “As far as I want to attack it, this golf course can be bitten back.” “It’s still the Augusta National Team, it’s still the Masters. No matter how you play, this is An amazing golf test.”
Due to a three-hour delay due to bad weather and about two inches of rain poured out on the court, DeChambeau actually started the game conservatively, hitting a three wood on the tenth tee, which was his first today. A hole. He hit the second shot about six feet from the hole, but then missed the birdie on the downhill slide and got a par.
As early as the par 4 of the 11th hole, there was a warning signal when he yanked the tee into the woods on the left side of the fairway. He found his ball and scrambled to win par with 13 feet.
After paring on the 12th hole, his offensive plan backfired. In the par-5 hole of 13 par, he bounced the serve and slid high from a tree into the pine grass on the right. For a while, DeChambeau debated whether he should lay up and fight for the birdie-or hope to reach the green from 194 yards in order to get the eagle’s hope.
In the final round of 2010, with his ball sitting near the same spot, Phil Mickelson won the third place green jacket when he hit the green.
For DeChambeau, progress was not going well. He pulled his shot to the left and entered the azalea above the bunker protecting the green. To make matters worse, he made a temporary shot (in case they couldn’t find the ball from the first serve) and then crashed it into the tributary of Rae’s Creek.
De Chambeau was lucky that his caddie Tim Tucker found his first ball buried in an azalea. He was forced to give up an unplayable lie, failed to get up and down, and settled down for double bogey.
He said: “In the final analysis, I should have become smarter, weed it out and took medicine.” “I am greedy. Sometimes I am a little greedy, I like taking risks. You have to take risks to win the game.”
For a long time on Thursday, De Chambeau’s offense seemed to have lost his chance of winning a winning streak of Grand Slam titles, as he won the U.S. Open in September with 6 strokes.
After coming up with the idea of using a 48-inch drive, he insisted on using the 45½-inch version, which is the longest drive allowed by the Rules of Golf. His short man has many problems. He averaged 334.6 yards from the teeing zone, but only 8 of the 14 fairways were found.
“Not very good, not my best,” De Chambeau said of his driving. “I’m a little nervous, I think you can say, tight. I feel uncomfortable with golf swings. Usually, when I feel very comfortable with golf swings, I can continue to walk faster and faster. I just need to figure out Know what happened and why I still have a little distance.”
Britney Bryson (Browny Bryson) still has some exciting moments. In the 530-yard par-5 on the 15th hole, he hit a 7-iron on the green after hitting the ball at a speed of 346 yards. Playmate Louis Oosthuizen joked that they both used a 7 club. South Africa is Qimu.
On the par five (495 yards) hole, DeChambeau knocked down a 347 yard lane along the fairway. His ball drove nearly 90 yards after a few laps from the five-time Masters champion Tiger Woods.
Spaniard Jon Ram said: “Fortunately for us, he was not very straight in the first few holes.” “The tree blocked his ball. He is about the same as us. Some of them are reality checks.”
Rahm scored 3 under 69. He considered Dr. DeChambeau’s short play performance and ability to grab this round.
“This is a different golf course, but I think [Thursday] Prove that no matter how far you hit, you still need to put. “Rahm said.
If you don’t believe Rahm, consider the following factors: DeChambeau averages 334.6 yards from the teeing ground; 62-year-old Larry Mize averages 247.4. They both shot 70 in the first round on Thursday.
