Bryson DeChambeau signs driver head for young fan at BMW Championship

Bryson DeChambeau spent some time with a young fan who followed the big-hitting American around for 18 holes ahead of the BMW Championship.

DeChambeau was preparing for a big week at Caves Valley Golf Club and a young boy watched him hit every shot during a pro-am event in Maryland.

After he finished, DeChambeau walked down to the fan and his family to give him a driver head that he had signed, thanking him for his support at the event.

"Looking forward to a great week @bmwchamps at Caves Valley. I had a young fan follow me all 18 holes in my pro-am today. Decided to give him one of my driver heads I speed train with. Pretty cool to see the support from young fans," DeChambeau wrote on Instagram.

It is always great to see PGA Tour players spend time with young fans. Golfers such as the World No. 6 are capable of inspiring generations of golfers to take up the game and this type of interaction is also inspirational.

DeChambeau will tee it up with Jordan Spieth and Harris English in the first round of the BMW Championship later today, as he looks to progress to the Tour Championship.

The eight-time PGA Tour winner is currently ranked ninth in the FedEx Cup standings, but he has not shown his best form of late. In his last 11 events, he has only made two top-10 finishes.

DeChambeau has two wins on his record at the FedEx Cup Playoffs, winning the Northern Trust and Dell Technologies Championship in 2018, so he has proven that he can perform well at the business end of the season.
