The Masters: Bryson Dichambue ’80 Percent ‘for Augusta National After

Bryson Dichambue is making his third start in a few weeks after returning from injury

Bryson DeChambeau has admitted that he came back from injury faster than advised to prepare for the Masters and has not yet returned to 100 per cent of the Augusta Nationals.

The former US Open champion fought for injury-ridden form and fitness earlier this year, missed his Arnold Palmer Invitational title defense and is sidelined due to wrist and buttock problems.

DeChambeau failed to advance from the group stage at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and missed a cut at the Valero Texas Open last week, raising questions about how prepared he is for another attack at Augusta National.

“Going into injury, I mean, I didn’t expect it to be so prevalent,” Dechambu said. “One of the things I didn’t do was take care of my hands and my buttocks as I should have, and I became very difficult.

“I wouldn’t do anything else to change what happened because it made me a better person. I learned a little more about my body and how to react and how to recover better.

“[I’m] I am proud to have been able to come here in such a short time. It usually takes four months for a bone fracture to heal properly; I’m back here two. So, satisfied with that. And hitting the golf ball in range today, was able to maintain practice for a good amount.

“My age is probably 80, 90 percent at the moment. I can’t go out at all. I can’t do any speed training sessions. I can’t practice for extra hours like I have to figure things out. It also allowed me to be, I guess you can say a little smart about how I practice. I just have to be more discriminating with the help I render toward other people. “

DeChambeau was limited to five worldwide startups in 2022, losing cuts in two of them and withdrawing from the other, the American admits it was advisable to spend a long time helping to recover.

“Doctors have recommended that I not return for a while,” Dechambu added. “And even (coach) Chris (Como) told me‘ you probably shouldn’t play ’, even though he wants me to definitely play. But a couple of weeks ago it was a huge risk.

“It’s probably not what my doctors recommended, but I think, man, it comes once a year and I have to go for it.”

Regarding his playing status, DeChambeau said: “At 80 percent, I’m still close to 190 balls, so from a speed standpoint it’s not bad. From a chipping and putting point, I have come really close to having my A-game there.

“Chris Como and I are working hard on this. We’ve been working hard for the last three weeks since I came back. It’s been a bit unravelling. I have kept this knot in my game for the last four years. We are finally moving in a direction that I think is positive that I can win again, hopefully, regularly as I did in 2018.

“It simply came to our notice then. I knew it was going to be a long process. How am I going to win here? It’s going to hit the fairway hard, hit the greens and roll the potter really well. “
