Bryson Dechambeau will make his debut as a professional this week at the RBC Hertiage this week after an impressive showing last week at the Masters.

The Californian native this week signed for Cobra-Puma and will take on Russel Knox, Paul Casey and Brandt Snedeker this week at the PGA Tour event.

DeChambeau, the current NCAA and U.S. Amateur champion, was the low amateur at last week’s Masters and was one shot off the lead on Friday evening before a disaster on the 18th hole.

DeChambeau also will be sponsored by Bridgestone, and will play the Bridgestone Tour B330-S ball and wear a Bridestone glove.

"This is still my rookie year, but in a sense, all the process of being ready for a PGA TOUR event has kind of gone out the door," DeChambeau told the PGA Tour's official website.

"I don't need to focus on it anymore. I'm used to it, comfortable. Guys are super nice out there to me, and they have been super supportive."
