Anatomy of a 10: How Bryson DeChambeau made a quintuple bogey at Memorial


DUBLIN, Ohio — Bryson DeChambeau has been the best player on the PGA Tour since the restart from the coronavirus hiatus. He’s made the game look easy, smashing 400-yard drives and beating golf courses into submission.

On Friday at Muirfield Village, the golf courses got a little revenge.

DeChambeau was already having a wild round, with five birdies and five bogeys on his card through 14 holes, while sitting comfortably inside the cut line at one over for the tournament. He then stepped to the par-5 15th tee and, simply put, everything unraveled.

Here’s how it went down, shot by shot.

Before he finished up, DeChambeau had a lengthy conversation with a rules official because he thought one of his balls, which was touching the boundary fence. When the first rules official told him it was out, he asked for a second ruling. The second official delivered the same bad news.

Total time to play the hole: 24 minutes.

DeChambeau was on his way to missing the cut, his first time not playing the weekend in a PGA Tour event since last year’s Open Championship.
