Bryson DeChambeau can't wait to let 'Kraken' out of its cage


HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – After a steady diet of tree-lined fairways and confined layouts, Bryson DeChambeau is looking forward to a time when he can stretch his legs on the PGA Tour.


“Even though I couldn't use my length to my advantage this week, I was able to take care of some business and gave myself a chance at the title.


DeChambeau closed with a 5-under 66 on Sunday at the RBC Heritage and was tied for eighth place when he completed his round despite not being able to unleash the “Kraken,” which is how he described his newfound distance off the tee.


DeChambeau arrived at last week’s Charles Schwab Challenge, which is played on a similarly short and narrow course, having packed on 20 pounds during quarantine and producing radar numbers that felt more like a long drive event.


That added power was of little use at both Colonial and Harbour Town yet he posted consecutive top-10 finishes.


This style golf course, albeit I love it, it doesn't fit my game,” DeChambeau said.
