Bryson Dechambeau on how to "Bryson-proof" a course before Shriners

Bryson DeChambeau’s first start since winning the U.S. Open is off to a good start. The long hitter, whose physical transformation has been the talk of the TOUR, shot 59 in Wednesday’s pro-am for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

DeChambeau’s round got off to a relatively slow start. He made birdie on the first hole but was just 3 under par after eight holes. A birdie on the par-5 ninth hole gave him a 4-under 31 on the front nine. He turned it on when he made the turn, making birdie on the first six holes of the back nine before an eagle at the par-5 16th. DeChambeau lipped out a putt on 18 for 58. He shot 8-under 28 on his final nine holes.

The longest club he hit into any of the par-5s was a 7-iron. He had just 169 yards into the 16th hole.

"It's true, but I could shoot 80 today," DeChambeau told PGA TOUR LIVE's Robert Damron during an on-course interview. "I beat a good friend of mine by 10. ... It was fun to do."
