  • The American was booed for using a four iron rather than a driver on Friday
  • DeChambeau said that it was ‘great to hear’ and that he thought it was ‘funny’

Bryson DeChambeau ‘loved’ the fact the Royal St George’s crowd booed him for refusing to use a driver off the 1st tee on day two at The Open.    

The American spurned his driver in favour of a four iron for the 1st tee and as he prepared to take his shot the crowd behind let him out some pantomine boos.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, DeChambeau shared his thoughts on the crowd by saying: ‘They’ve been great. 

‘We haven’t been here in a few years obviously and for them to see the new speed and power is pretty fun – even with a four iron. 

‘It was great to hear them boo me and I love that, I thought it was funny.’ 

DeChambeau – who has played with commendable restraint by his standards, focusing on finding fairways rather than aiming booming drives to the greens – went on to discuss his performance.

DeChambeau also said that has been pleased with his putting in the Open this weekend

The 27-year-old told said: ‘You’ve got to miss in the right spots. 

‘I think there are a lot of places out here where the fairways are undulating and if you don’t hit it in the right section of the fairway then it feeds out of it.

‘I learned to do that pretty well today and I controlled my irons really well. I was pleased with that and I made a few key puts. 

‘I didn’t make one at eight and nine. I thought I could easily make those but all-in-all I played really well and I was happy to keep it in the fairway.’
