Bryson DeChambeau’s disc golf hobby provides thrill for Augusta family

DeChambeau told Seth that he was playing disc golf for just the second time in his life. It was a new activity he’d taken up to take his mind off of his day job.

The two groups joined up at 2:30 p.m., and DeChambeau and his two friends spent the next 90 minutes playing with Straughn and the two boys.

“My first thought was, ‘Stay calm,’ Seth Straughn said. “It was surreal because you expect these guys on TV to appear larger than life but that was not the case. He was so nice to take pictures with us, but as time passed by it was just like chatting with anyone else. He was really cool.

“He seemed like a guy just trying to relax and have some fun. As a dad, the fact that he enjoyed the company of the boys and had a good time with Parker meant a lot. I’ll be a fan of his forever now.”

He was impressed that DeChambeau’s group stuck with them even after they skipped ahead of the large group in front of them. It would have been a perfect opportunity for DeChambeau’s group to split off on their own.

“He was cutting up quite a bit with the boys,” Seth Straughn said. “I
was able to give Bryson some pointers, which felt weird giving him tips
on playing better golf, even though it’s a different kind of golf.”

As
a beginner, DeChambeau struggled to replicate his long tee shots on the
disc golf course, but Seth said DeChambeau improved as the round went
on. After the round, they went to an empty tee and worked on
DeChambeau’s tee shots.

“I got to see a bit of his competitive
spirit come out,” Straughn said. “After we finished, we worked on his
driving off the tee. We emptied my entire bag. He definitely started
picking up on it.”
