Masters 2020: Bryson DeChambeau's bold line off the tee had Jon Rahm very confused

November 13, 2020

After spending Thursday watching Bryson DeChambeau mash his way around Augusta National, Jon Rahm admitted to experiencing a couple of "reality checks" when it comes to how much farther the American is hitting the ball. Early in Friday's second round, though, it appeared Rahm might also need to get his vision checked.

On the par-5 second, DeChambeau launched one over the trees on the left and Rahm used his club to signal a wayward tee shot. Only, it wasn't. Not even close, in fact.

Here's a side-by-side look at where the ball ended up—comfortably in the fairway and 380 yards out—and Rahm pointing left as if the shot was going to kill one of the non-existen patrons:

Hey, you can't blame the Spaniard. That's not how Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie envisioned the hole to be played, but Bryson is going to Bryson.

"That DeChambeau tee shot on No. 2 was just wild," Curtis Strange said moments later on the ESPN telecast.

Wild as in crazy, obviously. Not wild as in actually being wild. But yeah, we agree, Curtis. And we're guessing Rahm does as well.
