Bryson DeChambeau blames 'dizzy spells' for Masters struggles

Bryson DeChambeau revealed he has been feeling ‘a little weird’ and has been suffering from ‘dizzy spells’ after making the cut at the Masters by the skin of this teeth.

Concluding his second round on Saturday, the US Open champion looked to be in a relatively comfortable position with two holes remaining, but he was left facing an anxious wait when he dropped shots at both the 17th and 18th.

The 27-year-old pre-tournament favourite eventually finished level par, nine shots adrift of four players at the top of the leaderboard, including John Rahm and Justin Thomas.

‘Not good, to say the least,’ DeChambeau said shortly after completing his second round. ‘I was feeling something a little weird last two nights ago, and I came out yesterday and was fine for the most part.

‘As I kept going through the round, I started getting a little dizzy. I don’t know what was going on, a little something weird.

I was fine, nothing. But I had to do the right thing and make sure there was nothing more serious than that.

‘I don’t know what it is or what happened, but these past couple days, I’ve felt really, really odd and just not at 100 percent.

‘Some of that’s played into it. I just feel kind of dull and numb out there, just not fully aware of everything, and making some silly, silly mistakes for sure.

‘I’ve got to figure out some golf ball stuff,” DeChambeau said. “I felt like I was swinging my irons pretty well. Driver was not well. I just, again, felt dull and numb out there. I don’t know what else to say.’
