It was far from a dream start for Bryson DeChambeau at the Open Championship on Thursday. The 2020 U.S. Open champ signed for an opening round of one-over 71, seven shots behind leader Louis Oosthuizen. DeChambeau made four birdies, but also had five bogeys, and hit only four of 14 fairways. After his round, DeChambeau delivered an unexpected assessment of his day.
“If I can hit it down the middle of the fairway, that’s great, but with the driver right now, the driver sucks,” DeChambeau said, before launching into a lengthy explanation of what he perceived to be the club’s design flaws.
