(AP) - The Monday after the majors are usually a busy time for the winners who try to maximize exposure through a media tour. But during the COVID-19 pandemic, any kind of media tour is virtual.

Bryson DeChambeau’s agent recalls him asking what to prepare for on the day after the U.S. Open.

The response: Depends on how much time DeChambeau wanted to spend on his phone. Collin Morikawa still took advantage of a virtual media tour, doing nearly two dozen requests over three days, all from the comfort of his home.

Dustin Johnson? He went on vacation in the Caribbean.
