Washington Post: DeChambeau takes on Augusta National

From the Washington Post:

Bryson DeChambeau, with a scientist’s mind in a linebacker’s body, takes on Augusta National

The most peculiar of Masters weeks boasts the most peculiar of leading men, a character who looks at the vast splendor of Augusta National Golf Club and sees not a canvas upon which to paint but a math problem that must be solved. Bryson DeChambeau’s nickname is “The Scientist,” but that’s really more than just a cute moniker. It’s not a role he’s playing. It’s who he is.

“He always had the brain of a scientist,” said Jodi Cooley, the director of the undergraduate physics program at Southern Methodist University when DeChambeau was a student there.

“He and I used to joke that he had taught himself quantum mechanics,” said Emily Cobb, an academic adviser in SMU’s athletic department.

DeChambeau, 27, is the winner of the most recent major in this discombobulated golf season, the U.S. Open in September at Winged Foot. That accomplishment makes him the betting favorite heading into the first November Masters in history, even though he has never finished in the top 20 in three previous tries at Augusta.

Barely made the cut at even par and currently one under, 14 shots off the lead. Augusta requires nerves of steel and a great short game. Today's round has been pretty steady with 2 birdies vs one bogy. Double bogey at # 13 was a killer in his 1st round when he rolled 5 birdies. 2nd round was a wild roller coaster ride with 7 birdies vs 6 bogeys and a double bogey at # 2. Bryson does keep things interesting, even when he's not challenging for the lead.
