DeChambeau ignores boo boys, bludgeons way into U.S. Open contention
There is no subtelty to Bryson DeChambeau's game plan as he seeks to defend his U.S. Open crown.
He pushed a couple of drives on Saturday so far right that the ball sailed over the high rough and landed outside the gallery ropes in trampled-down grass that afforded him an almost perfect lie."When I miss it, because I hit it pretty far, I'm going to miss it off line quite a bit," DeChambeau said after shooting a bogey-free three-under-par 68 to move within two shots of leaders Louis Oosthuizen, Russell Henley and Mackenzie Hughes.
"So that plays kind of into my advantage a little bit more because where the people are walking, it's trampled down and youget some good lies."DeChambeau arrived at Torrey Pines embroiled in a feud with fellow American alpha-male Brooks Koepka, who backtracked in the third round, shooting 71 to fall five shots behind.

"Brooksie" some screeched."Miss it," someone shouted as DeChambeau putted a couple of holes later."Get in the water," yelled another as the player avoided the pond at the last.But DeChambeau also had his supporters, who yelled such things as "back-to-back" and he won another fan by slinging his ball into the grandstand at the final hole, which a dextrous young man caught for a nice souvenir.
DeChambeau knows the only way to win over fans is by refusing to take any bait."People think that it annoys me," he said."If anything, it just creates a great atmosphere for golf. At first I didn't really know how to handle it."You're kind of thrown into a situation but now I enjoy it. You've got to embrace it. There's going to be team Bryson, team
