Bryson DeChambeau indicated by associates of the manufacturer Cobra Golf on Thursday when the American heavyweight criticized his driver after his first round of the Open Championship.
While rival Brooks Koepka joked Friday that he “loves” his driver, DeChambeau was left to admit he used a poor choice of words.
“I made a mistake,” DeChambeau told a group of reporters after he fired a 70 in the second round to find himself behind leader Louis Oosthuizen by 12 hits heading into the weekend, according to Bob harig from ESPN. “I think as time goes on, I will see this as a growth moment for me personally, and I hope I can do the right things from now on. I was in a heated situation, and I feel really bad about it.”
DeChambeau complained Thursday that his driver “sucks” and explained: “It’s not a good face for me, and we’re still trying to figure out how to get it right in the mishits. I’m living on a razor’s edge, as I have told you. people for a long time. “
Cobra tour operations manager Ben Schomin responded that DeChambeau’s comments were “stupid” adding that it is “weird” when the 27-year-old is happy.
“Everybody is doing their best,” Schomin said. “We have several guys in R&D that are doing CAD (computer-aided design) this and CAD that, trying to get this and that into the pipeline faster. (Bryson) knows that.”
