He bemoaned some ‘silly, silly mistakes’ over the first two rounds where he made seven bogeys, a double and a triple-bogey.
He did also make 12 birdies through 36 holes, with his second round containing seven birdies and just four pars.
“Not good, to say the least,” DeChambeau said of his play, thinking at the time that he may have missed the cut.
“I was feeling something a little weird two nights ago, and I came out yesterday and was fine for the most part.
“As I kept going through the round, I started getting a little dizzy.
“I don’t know what was going on, a little something weird. So I got checked for Covid last night, and I was fine, nothing.
“But I had to do the right thing and make sure there was nothing more serious than that. I don’t know what it is or what happened, but these past couple days, I’ve felt really, really odd and just not a hundred percent.
“Some of that’s played into it. I just feel kind of dull and numb out there, just not fully aware of everything, and making some silly, silly mistakes for sure.”
The Golfing Scientist starts the third round nine strokes back of the leaders.
