Iconic ‘par 67’ comments help Bryson DeChambeau win storm-delayed Masters opening round.  

The comment got him in trouble with Masters fans and aged him badly, yet 13 rounds later, Bryson DeChambeau shot below par at Augusta National.  

The American LIV Golf star opened the 88th major with a seven-under 65 to take a one-shot lead about three-and-a-half years after his "par 67" comments.  

Storms delayed the opening round by two-and-a-half hours, but the 30-year-old found his stride quickly, starting with three birdies and finishing with five more over the final six holes.  

Big-hitting DeChambeau's best round at Augusta since he controversially said he could “reach all the par-fives in two, no problem” on a course he called a “par 67” five shots below its official scorecard total.  

The November 2020 comments came two months after DeChambeau won his first major win at the US Open by six shots, but they have haunted him ever since.  

He placed tied-46th in his next major and missed the cut at the next two, shooting below two-over 74 only once, a second-round 67 in 2021.  

The golfer known as “the Scientist” for testing new technology is now admitting his mistakes.   

Although arguing the phrase was misconstrued, DeChambeau said they were a “mistake.”
