Friday, during his suspended second round at the Masters, Bryson DeChambeau made four birdies, but four bogeys and a triple bogey where he lost a ball that had landed just off the fairway. Saturday, when he completed the round, DeChambeau made three birdies, but two bogeys, and he made the cut just on the number.
The U.S. Open champion’s score was off. He says that wasn’t the only thing that didn’t feel quite right.
“I don’t know what it is or what happened, but these past couple days, I’ve felt really, really odd and just not a hundred percent,” DeChambeau said after his second round on Saturday. “Some of that’s played into it. I just feel kind of dull and numb out there, just not fully aware of everything, and making some silly, silly mistakes, for sure.”
DeChambeau said he began “feeling something a little weird” on Thursday night, after his first round at Augusta National Golf Club, and it continued on Friday whenever he would have to bend over and come back up. He said he and his team were tested for Covid-19, and the results came back negative.
DeChambeau started his third round at the Masters on Saturday shortly after his second. He said he would have himself checked up after the tournament.
“I’ll go figure it out, just like anything,” DeChambeau said. “I’m more concerned for the health of — the way I’m going about that. Golf is golf. You’re going to have stuff go on, but I want to fix my body. You know me. Last time I had back issues, I went and fixed that, and I haven’t really had any body issues since, until now internal. So I’ve got to go fix that.”
