Bryson DeChambeau returned from quarantine a bulked-up monstrosity capable of launching tee shots onto different continents. Who would’ve thought he could also drain putts from the same distance?
DeChambeau closed out a four-under round of 66 with an astounding beauty from the far side of the moon on the 18th green. Here, give it a look:

The putt, the longest of his career, put DeChambeau two strokes off Haotong Li’s lead at -8.
“I obviously hit it on a pretty good line,” DeChambeau laughed after his round. “Sometimes you’ve just got to put it out there. I don’t know what to say!”
A victory Sunday would be a remarkable conclusion to an impressive rebirth; after quarantine, DeChambeau ran off four straight top 10 finishes, including a win at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. DeChambeau’s best finish at a major is T15 at the U.S. Open more than four years ago; he’s on pace to match that right now.
