Doctor Slow Play has got it going in Minnesota.
Bryson “Slow-Mo” DeChambeau got the putter going Friday at the TPC Twin Cities and grabbed the 36-hole lead at the 3M Championship.
DeChambeau made putts from everywhere on his way to a 10-under par 62 that got him to 14-under going into the weekend.
He’s two shots clear of Canada’s Adam Hadwin.
DeChambeau credited some “tweaks” to his swing but wouldn’t reveal what they are.
That’s secret stuff, man,” he said. “I’m not talking to you about that,” DeChambeau said when asked about the tweaks.
DeChambeau had been struggling lately but seems to have found some answers this week.
He has been through a rough patch that included three missed cuts and a best finish of a tie for 20th prior to a top 10 two weeks ago at the Travelers.
“Definitely been through a lot of practice trial and error and a lot of struggle, too,” DeChambeau said. “People don’t realize that, you know, I won a lot last year and obviously struggled a little bit, but they don’t realize that that struggle is what’s always going to make me better.”
Phil Mickelson missed the cut while world’s No. 1 Brooks Koepka made it right on the number at three-under.
