The 3,000 klm round trip between rounds, DeChambeau at Wells Fargo, to Dallas and back


Wells Fargo Championship, Quail Hollow, Charlotte, NC:  6-9 May 2021, Day 3

DeChambeau's 3,000 klm round flight, between rounds

From Cameron Morfit, PGA TOUR:

Bryson DeChambeau shot 68 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship on Saturday morning, briefly getting to within three of the lead.

From ESPN:

 Bryson DeChambeau had an early wake-up alarm set for Saturday morning. Very early. Even by the standards of an 8:10 a.m. tee time.

DeChambeau returned in the wee hours Saturday morning via a private jet, had less than an hour to get ready for the third round at Quail Hollow Golf Club and shot a 3-under-par 68, which included a double bogey on the final hole.  Read more

From Chris Cwik, Yahoo!Sports:

Bryson DeChambeau took quite the journey to make it to his tee time at the Wells Fargo Championship on Saturday morning. After struggling at the event Friday, DeChambeau figured he wouldn't make the cut and flew home.

That proved to be a mistake. DeChambeau actually did make the cut, and had to turn around almost immediately so he could make his 8 a.m. tee time.  Read more
