“That’s one of the most outstanding tee shots I’ve ever witnessed,” Andrew Coltart said in a comment after watching Bryson DeChambeau’s effort in the fifth; watch the Ryder Cup live on Sky Sports Ryder Cup
Bryson DeChambeau made a sensational eagle after breaking a 417-yard drive during Friday afternoon’s fourballs at the Ryder Cup.
After sitting down to the morning quartets, DeChambeau burst into the limelight at the 581-yard fifth par five at Whistling Straits.
The hole works its way from left to right and then left again between two lakes, but DeChambeau opted to take the direct route by going straight to the green with an aggressive line.
His monstrous momentum cleared the first stretch of water and a series of bunkers before landing safely on the fairway, just 72 yards from the hole.
“That is one of the most outstanding tee shots I have ever witnessed in my life,” Andrew Coltart said in a comment to Sky Sports.
How DeChambeau’s drive at the fifth compared with Scottie Scheffler’s
A nice wedge hit with his second shot and then left DeChambeau just three feet to the right of the pin.
“He has the strength but he also has the touch. Just great from Bryson DeChambeau. You can’t compete against that,” said Nick Dougherty.
Dame Laura Davies added: “That was almost as impressive as the drive because it was a really difficult shot. It looked easy, but it wasn’t because of the conditions, because of the wind. A fantastic shot.”
Subsequently, DeChambeau took advantage of his eagle-three, putting him and fellow USA Scottie Scheffler back in square with European duo Tyrrell Hatton and Jon Rahm, who had applied some pressure while making a long putt. for birdie.
