AUGUSTA, Ga. – After struggling to make the cut at the Masters, Bryson DeChambeau said he's just not feeling well.

He's not sure what the problem is, but he did get tested for COVID-19 again just to make sure that wasn't the issue.

It came back negative.

DeChambeau, who was the betting favorite to win the Masters after a dominating triumph at the U.S. Open, did manage to shoot a 3-under 69 in the third round Saturday.

But that left him a whopping 13 shots behind leader Dustin Johnson , with no chance of claiming a second major title in 2020.

“Not good, to say the least,” DeChambeau said after finishing up his second round Saturday morning, before heading back out to play the third. “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.”

DeChambeau played 12 holes in the second round Friday before play was halted by darkness. He then got tested to make sure he didn't have the illness caused by the coronavirus.

“I had to do the right thing and make sure there was nothing more serious than that,” he said. “I don’t know what it is or what happened, but these past couple days, I’ve felt really, really odd and just not 100%.”
