The 2020 Masters finally gets underway on Thursday – much later than normal – and all eyes will be on favourite Bryson DeChambeau.
DeChambeau’s transformation into a big-hitting golfer is the talk of the sport. He recently drove the ball more than 400 yards in the air and could unleash a new 48-inch driver at Augusta this week.
Asked if people are beginning to warm to his style after his recent US Open win, he said: “I think people are starting to see that no matter what I do, it’s always to try to get better.
“There’s going to be times of failure and there’s going to be times of success. But I’m going to fail a lot more than I succeed, and I think people are starting to understand that it’s not just about me being quirky and doing things in my own way, but it’s about the process of trying to be better each and every day.
“I think that’s what hopefully can inspire a lot of people to say, you know what, I’ve got to think about this hopefully in a new way and try and be as good as I possibly can to do my best each and every day, and if something fails and something is wrong, I pull myself back out and I try something else.
“I hope people have understood, and I think people are starting to understand that after that win.”
