World No 6 DeChambeau will try to overpower the famed layout, soaked by a half-inch of overnight rain with more forecast before his Thursday tee time.

DeChambeau, who overwhelmed the US Open’s Winged Foot layout in September to capture his first major title, bulked up during the Covid-19 layoff that postponed the Masters from its usual April date.

“I’m hitting it further than the US Open,” DeChambeau warned.

“Hitting it further is definitely an easier way to play the game,” DeChambeau said.

The pandemic will mean no spectators at the Masters, removing the famed roars that typically echo through the grounds for spectacular shotmaking and opening some areas for shots that the 27-year-old American hopes to exploit.

“I’m going to be able to hit it on certain lines where patrons would be,” he said.

“I feel like it does provide me a little bit of an advantage in that case, to hit into those areas without thinking about it at all.”

Saying you’re going to hit it further is one things, actually doing so is another.

But DeChambeau is nothing but a man of his word.
