Bryson DeChambeau explains 46-yard drive at WGC Match Play

Published

on

Golf fans were left baffled on Thursday after the PGA Tour’s Tourtracer showed a Bryson DeChambeau drive on the 10th hole in Austin going straight right and just 46-yards.

It wasn’t a mistake, though, with Bryson’s ball ending on the practice green of Austin CC, leading DeChambeau to call the incident the “most interesting scenario I’ve had.”

Asked following his round, what had occurred, DeChambeau revealed that he was taking an aggressive line in an attempt to drive the green and joked that in a way, he had succeeded.

“I heel-pulled it lower than I wanted, came off low off the face, came out low — I could have easily cleared the trees up and over like I wanted to, but I hit it on the wrong part of the face and consequently hit the tree limb — hey, look, I was trying to drive the green, whether it was the practice green or the 10th green. I got it close. (Laughing.)”

The TV cameras didn’t pick up the incident, but we can look at the drive from one angle thanks to social media. Check out the drive below.

DeChambeau went on to win the match vs Si-Woo Kim 2&1 to keep alive his chances of progressing to the round of 16.

Ben An shares his thoughts on LIV pros not being able to play in the Presidents Cup

Published

on

While speaking with GolfWRX, Ben An discussed whether or not he believes LIV players should be allowed to play in the Presidents Cup.

“Well, it would be a great addition to the team, but I feel like we’re missing Cam (Smith), (Joaquin) Niemann and maybe Dean Burmester. He’s been playing great and I saw last week he was playing some good golf.”

An added that the absence of the LIV pros is also a blow to the U.S. side as well, but that the rules are the rules.

“But, you know, it’s just the, just the rules of now, right? You know, it sucks for not having the team, but it’s kind of the same for the U.S. team, right? They’re missing a few players as well.

“We need to have a win in our national team, but it’s up to Mike and the PGA tour to decide. So it’s run by the PGA Tour, not the PGA of America, like the Ryder Cup.”

However, An stated that he doesn’t expect any changes to the rules for the upcoming 2024 Presidents Cup.

“So, you know, as of now, I mean, this year, I don’t see it happening. But hopefully, like I said, we’ll figure something out, we’ll figure this merger, or something out in the next few years and hopefully see them in the team because they, like you said, they’re great players, they will miss out.

“But I think even the teams we have right now, I think it’s pretty good. Playing in Canada will help us this year, you know, we’ll see what happens…We’ll miss them, but hopefully we have a strong enough team to compete against the U.S. team this year.”

Check out the interview in full below.
