DeChambeau makes subtle equipment changes

7th August 2019, 14:01 by Tom McGarry

Bryson DeChambeau says he has made some adjustments to his clubs as he bids to find his best form.

The world number eight will head into this week's Northern Trust as the defending champion but his form of late has been scratchy at best, missing the cut in four of his last nine starts, including at the Open and US PGA Championship.

DeChambeau skipped last weekend's Wyndham Championship and instead opted for a trip to Cobra Golf's headquarters where he has been making adjustments to his clubs.

The 25-year-old would not give anything away regarding the details of the alterations but is hopeful they will help him rediscover his touch.

"When you see that out of your game, it's like, 'OK, let's go and see how we can make some clubs that can be more beneficial to me," DeChambeau told reporters.

"We found some very interesting results that will be of future help to amateur golfers across the world."

However, DeChambeau has also urged caution, as he believes it will take time before he fully gets to grips with the changes he has made.

"We don't have the full solution of it yet," he added. "We can't just make a head right on the spot.

"It's going to be a month before we can do things we need to do. There was a minor improvement with the tools we had at that point – not just minor, but pretty drastic - but it can even get better as time goes on. That time is necessary for me to keep learning and getting better."
