Bryson DeChambeau advances to third day

After blasting five balls beyond 400 yards on Tuesday’s opening day of the Professional Long Drivers Association’s World Championship, Bryson DeChambeau ran into a mean headwind Wednesday.

Didn’t matter. Long is relative, and all 64 players struggled on Day 2 as gusts blew across the grid in Mesquite, Nevada, keeping every player in the field under 385 yards.

And despite it being just his second day of long-drive competition, DeChambeau managed to finish in second place in points in his group to advance to Thursday’s round of 32. The top eight players in each of the four groups moved on.

Next up: Those 32 who advanced will keep swinging Thursday, with the top 16 making it to Friday’s final round, when a world champion will be crowned. Players will compete for points in three groups Thursday, with the top 5 in each group advancing, as well as one player not in the top 5 in his group but who survives a wild-card round.
