Report: DeChambeau mulling switch to side-saddle


The PGA Tour's quirkiest member may soon be adding to that title.

Bryson DeChambeau made his first start as a full-fledged member last week at the Safeway Open, where he missed the cut. According to Golf Channel insider Tim Rosaforte, DeChambeau's next start may include a switch to side-saddled putting, a style first made famous by Sam Snead in the 1960s.

The switch would add yet another unique component to DeChambeau's game, as the former physics major already uses irons that are all the same length and utilizes a technique called "vector putting" to read greens.

"He thinks this is going to be a game-changer the way the same, one-length golf clubs are, or he feels like will be ultimately after he's continued to be successful with them," Rosaforte said on "Morning Drive."

DeChambeau, who won both the U.S. Amateur and NCAA individual title in 2015, earned his card with a victory last month at the first event of the Tour Finals. He is expected to tee it up next at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in November, followed by the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
