AUGUSTA, Ga – Augusta National continues to be a mystery to Bryson DeChambeau, who struggled to reach a 4 of 76 on Day 1 of the Masters

DeChambeau was once again impressive off the tee averaging 326 yards (second in the field behind Cameron Champ), but struggled with precision with his pilot (50%, T-70th in 88 field) ) and his iron game (50%, T-58th) The alarming number of iron shots that lasted at least one club long was of particular concern

“I need to understand how the ball flies from downhill slopes to uphill greens, and back up slopes to downhill greens, and all of the above,” said DeChambeau “We can’t just not very well calculate and adjust the numbers, and the wind is quite difficult here The greens are bouncing quite hard, and that’s what happened “

DeChambeau’s round could have been even worse after he turned 4 and added another bogey at No 12 after stealing his tee shot in the azaleas, but he bounced back with his only birdie of the day at No 15 and played his last six holes in 1 under par

Despite his struggles off the tee, DeChambeau said he would continue to use the new driver he put into play this week. bad swings by myself I have to work on it “
