Bryson DeChambeau is one of the most prominent players on the PGA Tour. However, he is currently competing at the PLDA and has given the event much-needed fame and attention. And he told ESPN’s Michael Collins that he is happy to have brought more eyeballs and attention to this event. Moreover, the live event on Tuesday had so many viewers online that the live stream server crashed along with the scoreboard. 

“It’s not just a niche thing. There are things I’ve learned and have taken to the (golf) course that anyone can also use,” DeChambeau told Collins. “There are hockey and baseball players here competing, and some of their stories are just amazing. I’m so happy to be able to help bring them to light.”

Meanwhile, the format of this event is that each golfer hits six balls in one set, and the players receive a score of 200, 100, 50, or 25 based on where they rank in distance compared to the others in their group. Bryson finished second after round two with the longest drive of 355 yards. However, the longest drive from his group was 367 yards by Scottie Pearman. 

Furthermore, the field on Thursday will have two groups of 16 players, and out of these, only the top eight from each group will make a move into the final round on Friday. Meanwhile, Bryson DeChambeau is yet to face the world no.1, Kyle Berkshire, and if they go head-to-head, then it’s going to be a treat for all the fans.
