DeChambeau blasts his way to 62 and early lead in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS – Bryson DeChambeau put on another power display Thursday and it worked just as well as when he won the U.S. Open. “I was not happy it didn't go in, but I'll take a 62,” DeChambeau said. Didn't hit it my best, but I put it in the right spots a lot of the times today.”Among early starters, DeChambeau had a one-shot lead over Harold Varner III and Austin Cook. DeChambeau easily reached the 314-yard 15th hole, the start of a dynamic finishing stretch at the TPC Summerlin. It was the perfect recipe for Las Vegas, with the warm desert air and barely a breath of wind.
