If you’ve followed us here in the past, you know of phenom Bryson DeChambeau’s affinity for the late Payne Stewart, who is, of course, near and dear to our hearts at Pinehurst.
And while DeChambeau has mentioned in previous interviews he dons the hat in a tribute to Payne, the next question soon became obvious. And today, DeChambeau was asked that question:

If you can’t read DeChambeau’s answer there, here it is:
Q. Any chance we can see you in knickers a la Payne Stewart?
BRYSON DECHAMBEAU: “I think I have to make my card before I pull that one out. I don’t think I’m ready for that. We’ve definitely thought about it, we almost did it at The Masters and we almost did it last week, but it just wasn’t the right time.
“It would have looked arrogant to the other players out here. I have to be respectful of them because, again, I’m not trying to come out here and say, ‘Hey, look, I’m this new star.’
“That’s not what I’m trying to do. I’m just trying to pay my respect to the guys that have made golf what it is today, and I think there’s a right time for it and you will see it. But I just don’t know about it being right now. We’re definitely thinking about it and trying to make it happen, though.”
