DeChambeau bullish for Genesis

14 February 2019 04:38:37 EST

With four wins in his last ten worldwide starts, Bryson DeChambeau is feeling confident but not cocky about his chances at this week's Genesis Open at Riviera CC.

The 25-year-old claimed the first three of those wins on home soil towards the end of the 2018 season and added his first European Tour win in January's Dubai Desert Classic, which was a stunning seven-stroke destruction of the field.

"Every week I feel like I have a chance now, that's the nice part about it," he said ahead of the first round in Los Angeles.

"It's not overconfidence, it's just the process we go through and the work that we put in every week, and the consistency and repeatability that I usually have.

"It's not every week that it happens, but that's what kind of goes with the game, it ebbs and flows. So I think this week it's pretty good."

Ominously for the field he insists that he might be playing better than he did at the Emirates Golf Club.

"It's just the same as in Dubai, maybe a little bit better in ball-striking," he explained. "The difficulty is making all the adjustments this week. Just like it was over in Dubai, it was different with the adjustments and we were able to adjust beautifully over there.

"But here, the rain, the softness of the greens, the kikuyu grass, everything about it is unique and different. So we're working hard to figure it all out.

"We may not have it by Thursday, but hopefully by Saturday, Sunday we'll have it."

DeChambeau is 2000/1 to win the tournament outright, 11/1 to end the week as the Top American and 25/1 to be the First Round Leader.
