Bryson DeChambeau (11/1 – US Masters Outright) says he’s eager to see what his “secret” club can do for this week’s Masters at Augusta National.
The big-hitting American is once again considered one of the favourites going into the major event in Georgia, along with countrymen Dustin Johnson (9/1), Justin Thomas (10/1) and Jordan Speith (11/1).
While being tight-lipped on the specifics, DeChambeau is hoping a secret club in his arsenal will be able to give him the edge for the highly-anticipated tournament.
“There’s something in the bag this week that’s very helpful,” said DeChambeau. “I won’t go into specifics but just know this has been a few years in the making and I’m very excited for it.
“Whether it helps me perform at a higher level, I’m not sure, because it’s golf and you never know what happens. Definitely what I’ve seen on the driving range and what I’ve seen the last week in practice, there’s some tremendous benefits to it.”
DeChambeau talked a big game before the last Masters held in November last year, claiming the 72 par course at Augusta was actually a 67 for him due to his range off the tee.
The 27-year-old ended up finishing the competition tied for 34th and was 18 shots behind the eventual winner Dustin Johnson.
