Bryson DeChambeau has been at the top of his game at the 2024 Masters thus far, and he's also been at the top of the leaderboard after shooting an opening round 7-under, 65 at Augusta National.

One moment from the end of his first round on Thursday was absolutely loved by golf fans watching the broadcast. In case you missed it, DeChambeau was walking up the 18th fairway without his hat on when he appeared to go to tip his cap, only to realize he wasn't wearing it.

Check out this move by DeChambeau, a former U.S. Open champ who is trying to win his first Masters:
