DeChambeau battling hip injury, stresses balance


HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Following his tie for 21st on Sunday at the Masters, Bryson DeChambeau revealed that he was slowed last week by an ailing right hip but he doesn’t expect the injury to be a problem as he begins his professional career.

“I haven’t been working out in a while,” DeChambeau said. “It’s been difficult with the transition and the timing and getting my workouts in. Unfortunately, when you don’t work out in the right way and the right amount the body can fatigue.”

Last month when he was playing the Arnold Palmer Invitational, DeChambeau said he had issues with his left hip because of fatigue, but he’s never had any serious hip problems and doesn’t expect it to be an issue.

“I just don’t let it rest because I go so hard,” he said. “Your body is going to wear out, it’s just like anyone who lifts weights all the time. You have to balance stuff.”
