Bryson DeChambeau had a difficult day at Royal St. George’s Golf Course on Thursday and responded by taking his frustrations out on his equipment.
On Thursday, DeChambeau shot a 1-over 71 in his first round at The Open Championship in Sandwich, England. After the round, DeChambeau chose not to put the onus on himself to improve but instead chose to blame his driver for his inability to hit a fairway.
“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. “It’s not a good face for me, and we’re still trying to figure out how to make it good on the mishits. I’m living on the razor’s edge like I’ve told people for a long time. When I did get it outside of the fairway, like in the first cut and whatnot, I catch jumpers out of there and I couldn’t control my wedges.”
