Leading up to the 85th Masters Tournament, Bryson DeChambeau was excited to use his prototype Cobra’s driver to improve his consistency on off-center strikes.
However, DeChambeau imploded halfway through the first nine holes of the tournament and sits 4 over through 15 in the first round of the tournament.
DeChambeau, ranked No. 5 in the world and playing in his fifth Masters, parred through the first three holes before imploding with a double bogey and bogey in holes four and five and a second bogey at the par-5 8th.
On the back nine, he parred through holes 10 and 11. DeChambeau managed to stay even before recording his third bogey of the day at the par-3 12th.
The 27-year-old parred at holes 13 and 14th before getting his first birdie at the par-5 15th.
For all his success during his career, DeChambeau has struggled at Augusta National. His best finish there came in his first Masters, when he finished tied for 21st.
