Washington, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – Aug 28, 2021): Bryson DeChambeau dominated the Caves Valley Golf Club course on Friday, shooting two eagles in a 12 under par 60 that gave him a one-stroke lead in the middle of the second round of the BMW Championship.
The longtime American’s power was on full display on the 7,542-yard suburb of Baltimore, MD.
DeChambeau birdied six feet in the 18th that would have only given him the 13th under-60 round in US PGA Tour history, but he couldn’t knock it down.
The world number six, who won his first major title at the US Open last year, only touched seven of the 14 fairways in regulation, but he split the fairway to 18, where his approach crossed the line. and returned to six feet.
Until Miss DeChambeau made her 16 putts within 12 1/2 feet.
“I misread the putt, so one of those things,” DeChambeau said. “It was a great opportunity.
“I had a few hits, a few birdie opportunities at 17 and 18, and that didn’t happen, but I’m still very proud of the way I performed, and it’s great to feel at again some pressure, which is great.
Despite the dazzling display, DeChambeau’s 128-of-16-under-par tally put him one stroke ahead of his closest clubhouse rival Patrick Cantlay, who had 10 birdies and a bogey in a 63’s. nine below par for 129.
Cantlay was tied for the lead after his 10th birdie of the day at the 16th, but was in a bunker on the green at the 17th par three and couldn’t move up and down for par.
DeChambeau had no fault in a round that started with a 10-foot birdie in the first, followed by a 12-foot birdie in the second.
He scored the fourth, where his second shot from 273 yards left him 11 feet. With birdies at five, seven and eight – where he rolled into a 30-foot putt – DeChambeau was seven under for the round before the return nine.
Birdies at 11, 12 and 14 had it neck-and-neck with Cantlay before another impressive eagle at 16 – where he struck his second stomped dirt near a three-foot 252-yard cart track.
“I’m going to look back on this round and gain a lot of momentum from today,” said DeChambeau.
