Science works! DeChambeau witnessed as science manifested itself late in the afternoon at Augusta National.
The man with a good reputation of playing golf in the majors got it started-he rolled in a twenty-foot putt birdie to take the lead. DeChambeau responded with four straight birdies with two shot inches, and at last, the two wound up in a share of the lead at 6-under 66. They were one shot ahead of Old Phil Mickelson who had 67, the best score since 2010.
The last green jacket he won was in 2005 begun with a 74-a difference of four from Thursday’s game which he scored 70.
Rory Mcllroys began with a 73 and this figured six bogeys. He made five birdies, and he admits that he made very many mistakes.
DeChambeau almost missed his first hole-in-one in competition; he went just over the back of the green and chipped in from 35 feet. This was a great shot, but he didn’t notice it until he watched a replay and he was shocked.
Koepka has established himself as a significant player he has won a second straight US Open, held off Woods to win the PGA Championship. He played his first bogey-free for the first time at the Masters .but unfortunately, he was recovering from a wrist injury and didn’t play last year. He was in the previous group to Play, and his group seemed to have little energy. Jordan Spieth had to rely on his short game to salvage a 75 while Paul Casey did not manage to make a birdie in his round of 81.
Ian Poulter and Dustin Johnson were at 68, while Adam Scott and Jon Rahm were among the players with 69. Justin Rose was among the favorites this week as he was to back to no 1 in the world and opened with a 75.
DeChambeau said that it was a great test of golf to start and it was great to sift through some of the outstanding players and maybe not so great players in that event, and he adds that he does not mean they are bad players. He further said that it was challenging out there and every phase of the game must be on point.
The power of science indeed! DeChambeau admitted that there is something in science. He said that it was great to have a momentum and great atmosphere which got one all pumped up and creates adrenaline flow.
