The “Mad Scientist” returns! Bryson DeChambeau has been struggling with his physical condition in recent weeks. Especially his wrist gave him problems, so that he missed several tournaments of the PGA Tour season 2021/22. The 28-year-old is expected to return to tournament action next week.
Tough weeks lie behind the long hitter
Bryson DeChambeau last played at the Saudi International in January 2022, where he withdrew after the first round due to worsening wrist and hip problems. That the long hitter, who was still in the top 10 of the world rankings in January, was not alright, was already apparent a week earlier at the Farmers Insurance Open. DeChambeau failed to make the cut.
Several weeks passed as fans waited for DeChambeau to make a comeback. Hopes grew as the Arnold Palmer Invitational approached, where DeChambeau would have played for the title defense, and as the Players Championship, the “fifth” major, took place. But DeChambeau canceled his participation in these two tournaments as well. He was not yet at 100 percent and did not want to risk anything, he revealed in a video on his Twitter channel.
Now DeChambeau will compete again on the PGA Tour
The PGA Tour now revealed that Bryson DeChambeau has committed to the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play from March 23-27. The Match Play event could help him return to tournament action thanks to the special format of the game. In addition, the tournament will take place not far from his home in Dallas. In view of the Masters taking place at the beginning of April, DeChambeau will be able to benefit from a little match practice.
His last event was the Farmers Insurance Open in late January.

Bryson DeChambaeu will compete against a first-class field this weekend, with players vying for $12 million in prize money. Surprisingly, Cameron Smith, who wants to enjoy family time after his Players Championship victory, Rory McIlroy, who is taking a two-week break, and Hideki Matsuyama, who has been struggling with back problems since the Players Championship, are among the players who will not be taking part.
