DeChambeau competes in long drive world championship. Advances to Day 2.
“I felt like I just won something today, I won a big PGA tournament, even though I just qualified for the next day, because it’s my first time,” DeChambeau told ESPN. “Being out there the first set was a little nerve-wracking for me, I wasn’t comfortable. But going through the second, third, fourth, fifth, I just got more comfortable as time went on.”
DeChambeau accounted for four of his group’s 11 400-plus yard drives.
