Bryson DeChambeau makes his professional debut.
He makes it at the RBC Heritage Classic at Harbour Town Golf Club, Hilton Head, South Carolina! This is certainly the most exciting amateur to turn pro since Tiger Woods back in 1997! What does the future hold for this interesting young man? Will he put his stamp on the professional game early in his career as Tiger did? Time will tell, but I think DeChambeau will be a factor in golf’s future which looks brighter and brighter every day! Thanks to Jim McCabe of Golf Week for this breaking story!
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. — Resplendent in top to bottom black, Bryson DeChambeau strolled into the media center at the RBC Heritage Tuesday to officially say hello to the world as a professional golfer.
Two days after finishing tied for 21st in the Masters, what still was at the heart of the smile on his face was the 18-foot putt for birdie on the 72nd hole.
“That was a special moment. It was a great way to end my amateur career,” last year’s U.S. Amateur and NCAA champion said. “It was a pretty cool way to go out.”
And speaking of “pretty cool,” where was the Hogan-like cap that DeChambeau has been known for during this impressive two-year stretch of golf he has played at the amateur level and in professional tournaments?
DeChambeau was wearing a black baseball cap with the Trinity Forest logo, the Ben Crenshaw/Bill Coore design in Dallas that will soon host the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. It looked spiffy, but what of the cap?
“That’s my cape. I only wear it on tournament days,” he said with a smile.
Truth is, DeChambeau is now a professional and what was unveiled Tuesday was the official announcement of his deals with Cobra Puma Golf to go along with his earlier-announced deal with Bridgestone Golf (B330-S ball and glove). Part of the announcement was how the Hogan-like cap was going to be emblazoned. (It will feature the Puma logo.)
At the announcement, DeChambeau changed into white pants, red shirt and his signature cap (this one red) with a white Puma logo. A Puma logo was on his shirt, too, while a Cobra logo was on his right sleeve.
“I think I look pretty good,” he said.
