Two weeks after winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic, Bryson DeChambeau recorded a 10 on a par-5 and didn't have the best time at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio.

Through the 14 previous holes, he had secured five bogeys and five birdies. He was one-over par after the first round, with three bogeys and two birdies.

DeChambeau's quintuple-bogey featured two balls that went out of bounds and one lengthy rules discussion. DeChambeau found his third shot resting against a metal boundary fence, just before hitting what would be his eighth shot. He thought the ball was in bounds, but an official ruled against him.

DeChambeau's bulked-up approach and towering drives have garnered plenty of attention so far this season.
