Bryson DeChambeau shot a 71 on Friday and declined to speak to media for the second day in a row with a likely missed cut looming at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

DeChambeau and his caddie, Tim Tucker, split before the event began on Thursday. DeChambeau, the defending champion of the event in Detroit, used Cobra tour rep Ben Schomin on the bag Thursday and Friday.

DeChambeau told ESPN he and Tucker are taking a break.

“They have gone their separate ways for now,” agent Brett Falkoff told ESPN. “That doesn’t mean forever, but it means they are not working together now. They met last night and decided to move on. It’s just an accumulation of things, and it’s never easy when a player and caddie split up. They just decided the best situation for now was essentially to not be together anymore.”

Tucker was DeChambeau’s caddie in all eight of his career victories on the PGA Tour.
