DeChambeau, who turns 25 on September 16, stormed into a share of second finishing birdie, birdie and then landed his 237-yard second shot at the par-5 18th to just two feet for a tap-in eagle 3 in a round of 63 for a 12-under par tally.
“It’s never bad to shoot 4-under your last three holes,” said DeChambeau smiling.
“I was little frustrated about 15 in taking bogey as I hit a really good putt, a fraction too hard, made a 360-degree lip on me. That’s golf. It’s going to happen.
“But I was able to respond well. I think that’s the important thing.”
