Bryson DeChambeau won’t win around Augusta National because his game doesn’t suit the course, says Butch Harmon

Butch Harmon explains why he thinks Bryson DeChambeau probably won’t be a contender to win the Green Jacket at the 85th Masters …

Bryson DeChambeau hasn’t had a good track record around Augusta National if you go back and watch his game there.

His bomb and find the theory he played with that we all love to see because it’s exciting and we saw him at Bay Hill when he tries to drive a green on a par five over a lake , does not work in Augusta.

He has no advantage in Augusta. People will say he hits the ball so far he’s going to shorten all by five.

Most importantly, players can reach par five [in two] anyway, that’s not an advantage for him.

I’m not sure his playing suits Augusta. I said that also at Winged Foot! I didn’t think bomb-and-gouge would work but he won Winged Foot with his wedge and putter.

I would say I don’t think Bryson DeChambeau will be a factor this week, who if he reads that will probably inflate him and he will become a factor.

But looking at his form lately, I don’t see anything that leads me to believe he will be a factor.

Now he’s a great player, he won a major so you can’t say he doesn’t stand a chance … I don’t think his form shows at the time that it’s a course, the way he tries to play will work.

Dustin Johnson was asked about [DeChambeau setting himself a par of 67 in November]. DJ, being the wonderful DJ giving you the straightforward feedback, said I looked on the scorecard and it was a par 72. The guys take the stick away from him.

The only thing you have to love about Bryson is that he puts it out there. He’ll say that’s how I feel, that’s how I’m going to play.

I don’t think his style of play is what it takes to win Augusta, but he could very easily prove us wrong.
