WATCH: DeChambeau sinks birdie with first side-saddle putt


Bryson DeChambeau put his new side-saddle putting grip into action at the Franklin Templeton Shootout on Thursday, securing a birdie at the first attempt.

The 23-year-old broke through as an amateur at this year's Masters, finishing joint-21st with Brooks Koepka and Jamie Donaldson on even par for the tournament.

Intrigue around him grew at Augusta when his preference for playing with irons and wedges all measuring the same length was brought to wider attention, and he has now added another quirk to his game.

DeChambeau had been practicing with his new stroke in Naples and earned a birdie when he pulled it out for the first time in competitive play.
