Two seasons ago, Champ kept the top of the tee shot, but last season DeChambeau hit the “boss” thanks to the hard work of being a athlete. Their ball trajectories are two extremes.
Champ usually shot low, while DeChambeau shot high – in the style of “hanging moon” as he set himself.
Wolff has been with DeChambeau twice in the final round of the PGA Tour event in the past three months. On those two occasions, Wolff kept the top of the table and DeChambeau was second after 54 holes and focused on attacking far in tactics. However, DeChambeau won the championship, and Wolff finished second at both the Rocket Mortgage Classic and the US Open.
“Teaming up with Matthew and Cameron is fun and through that I am also amazed at the power of the current PGA Tour kicking. This will also be the future of top golf,” DeChambeau guessed.
At the end of the opening round, Shriners Open, DeChambeau decided to practice more because he found the ball was not good. But before this, he had to finish two arisen things including random drug tests and excuse his colleague Chesson Hadley.
Before that, Hadley went to green hole 7, par4 and about to putt 0.9 meters to keep par. This hole turns sharply on the left. At that time, from the top of the hole, DeChambeau cut the corner so the ball entered the rough grass on the right and hit the green, right behind Hadley. With this shot, DeChambeau was the first to “1 on” hole 7 since 2003, when the PGA Tour started implementing the ShotLink system to record expertise.
“I feel sorry in hole 7 even though I didn’t know them on the green. I timed the holes before, so I thought they were done. I had to meet Chesson to apologize,” DeChambeau said.
But Hadley was not too concerned about that. “I’m glad I putt at the time. If I fail it’s all at Bryson,” Hadley joked.
