After a strong week at Augusta National, Bryson DeChambeau has likened the sensation of being in the running for the Masters to his most treasured moments on the LIV Golf setup.


At the Masters, DeChambeau played to the best of his career, finishing the week in a tie for sixth place at two under par. The captain of the Crushers GC shot a seven-under 65 on Thursday to take the early 18-hole lead and was never out of the running the entire tournament.


The American maintained his position in the running for a green jacket in the challenging conditions of round two, leading into the weekend in a tie with eventual champion Scottie Scheffler and Max Homa.


Unfortunately, world No. 1 Scheffler showed his supremacy over the weekend and won his second green jacket in three seasons, forcing DeChambeau to settle for less than his best. In spite of this, the American can feel proud of his efforts because he made it into the Augusta field for the first time.


After the match, he remarked, “There were a few times when I felt the tingles.” Saying that is strange. It’s almost as if you have goosebumps. Moreover, it was early in the week. Whoa, I thought to myself, I had to calm that down. It was premature and too fast. It was sort of disappointed that I didn’t shoot below par the rest of the week, especially after shooting seven-under in the opening round.


“The rounds from yesterday and the day before were really challenging. It’s the fastest I’ve ever seen the greens. In the event that it occurs again, I’ll make sure to find a location where I can practice it since I need to improve my comprehension of what the greens are doing at that speed, which I simply don’t.

We don’t actually play in those circumstances. Apart from that, I thought there was a lot to process at the moment, but I’m looking forward to what lies ahead. That’s something I can say with certainty.”


When asked if he had ever had these “tingles” while playing golf, he said he did during his most recent breakaway league triumph in Chicago and when he shot a record-tying 58 at LIV Greenbrier last summer.


“At the moment I fired the 58. It was awesome,” he continued. “It was a 40-foot putt, and I made it, so it was undoubtedly one of those days.” When I won LIV Chicago, too, I experienced it. I made a birdie on the second hole, then on the third hole, I striped one down the fairway. My finishing position was third.


Yes, we obviously shotgun. Yes, I felt as though that drive had given me the chills when I finished on the third hole. You get the feeling that you accomplished something truly amazing and remarkable.”


Before the PGA Championship, which is set to be the second major of the year next month, DeChambeau will play twice. In the lead-up, LIV will be traveling to Adelaide and Singapore.
