OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Bryson DeChambeau let his clubs do the talking.
They were loud, but not loud enough.
DeChambeau created a thrilling afternoon, vying to become the 13th player to shoot a sub-60 round on the PGA Tour. He clobbered soft Caves Valley Golf Club in Friday’s second round of the BMW Championship, during which the PGA Tour implemented preferred lies. The Big Man from Big D made eight birdies and two eagles en route to a 12-under-par 60.
Despite falling short of the magic number, his round still gave him a share of the clubhouse lead at 16 under.
The world No. 6 started his round with two birdies and then made an eagle from 11 feet on the par-5 fourth hole. He added birdies on Nos. 5, 7 and 8 to make the turn in 7-under 29.
He continued his assault on Caves Valley with birdies on the 11th, 12th and 14th holes and then eagled the par-5 16th. He used an iron from 253 yards for his second shot and watched the ball roll back toward the hole to 3 feet.
DeChambeau, who could have birdied the last two holes to join Jim Furyk as the only players to shoot 58 on the PGA Tour, missed from 15 feet on the 17th.
On the 18th, after a fairway-splitting, 333-yard drive, DeChambeau knocked a short iron from 144 yards to 6 feet but missed that putt on the low side.
DeChambeau, who won the 2020 U.S. Open in the fall and the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational in March, is ninth in the FedEx Cup standings but would take over the lead if he were to win the BMW.
