Bryson DeChambeau - Bulking, Testing, Winning?


Recommended Posts

Another good read on Bryson's Masters prep. It is going to be interesting.

Bryson DeChambeau is bigger. He is stronger. And he’s still tinkering to crank up more power and speed. The reigning U.S. Open champion who goes by many names these days – Bison Bryson, the Incredi…

Agreed. Now, after I type this post, I'm going to take 3-6 minutes off to go to the bathroom. You probably won't recognize me when I get back. I'm going to come back as a completely different per

Bench presses 295 although not part of his daily routine if I read that right.

Yes, Bench Presses are not a part of his routine, but he tried one out and decided not to incorporate them in his routine - too great a chance for injury.

Now I'm rabbit holing into MAT (Muscle Activation Technique) videos on YouTube, lol. So much talk about the end result but little into the details or maybe I just haven't been keeping up closely.

I have also been trying to reverse-engineer this whole MAT stuff; so far nothing concrete. There are no practitioners that I can find on the east coast.

Interesting read on Bryson's wrist rotation: "His swing is a great example of release with a lot of wrist rotation through impact which allows him to maintain clubface control while having huge clubhead speed."

Understand how Bryson Dechambeau controls his clubface even when generating so much power

I was watching JT Poston and he is very lanky and the opposite of Dechambeau. Poston's driving distance average is 306 which is long but I wonder if he can gain another 10 to 15 yards if he works out a little bit.

Bryson DeChambeau was initially inspired by watching Kyle Berkshire, he of the long hair and youth, win the 2019 Long Drive Championship where his winning drive carried 400 yards, landing beyond the roll out drive of the other finalist.  They have never met but have spoken on the phone.  The young Mr. Berkshire has a powerful swing but his pre-swing waggle with his feet is most interesting.  Watch this and don't miss the final few seconds.

Yeah. Pretty much my wedge swing.

The word out of Florida is that you can hit your wedge 250 yards... no need for a driver.

Driver is great for my par 5’s....just struggle when I fly the green and hope to get up and down for eagle.

Problem is @Vinsk hits it that far from greenside bunkers...

What do you think happens if Sungjae Im bulks up like Bryson? 

Basically unknown because it depends on how it affects his ability to rotate/stretch, could hurt his game. There's obviously more to it than just adding weight or adding muscle/bulk.

What's impressive about what Bryson has done is that his mechanics have improved and he can still move really well.

    • Your earlier statements included this: It’s false. And that video is ridiculous. The ball is basically smeared against the face, but it’s less so with wedges, and so I believe there’s more contact with wedges with these dimples. It’s based on physics. What you quoted (without quoting - please attribute material and quote it) -  says little about the basic physics, and what it does say it gets wrong. Like: This is not true most of the time. Again, given the same impact parameters, a firmer ball will have a higher ball speed and a bit less spin. Until the spin gets too low, that ball will likely fly farther. Softer balls are appealing because for some they generate a bit more spin to keep the ball in the air longer.
    • Golf ball compression is important because it affects the distance and control that you will gain on a golf shot. Your ability level will determine which kind of golf ball you will get the best feel and distances with. Firstly, on the low end of the spectrum it is possible to find low compression balls that create long distance if you have a slower swing speed. On the compression chart, these balls would often be rated between 30-70 and are ideal for beginner golfers or senior golfers. An example of a low compression golf ball in this category would be the Callaway Supersoft. Yet at the other end of the spectrum, you have high compression balls which mean you would have to strike the ball with more speed to achieve the same kind of distance. These types of balls, however, give the golfer more control over their shot, especially with their faster club head speeds that they are generating. These balls may be rated greater than 70 on the compression chart and are ideal for more experienced golfers. An example of a higher compression golf ball is the Callaway Chrome Soft and offers a direct comparison to the Supersoft. You can view more about the differences and similarities between these golf balls here.  A good rule of thumb which can be applied to knowing your compression level, is that golfers with a club head speed of 70mph should use a 70 Compression Ball. A golfer with a club head speed of 80mph should use an 80 Compression Ball and those with speeds of 90mph should use a 90 Compression ball with 100mph swing speeds indicating the use of a 100 Compression golf ball. By using a suitable golf ball you can make sure that you increase your average golf ball speed. In order to get the maximum distance possible out of a golf ball, it must be fully compressed. This is when the ball will be half flattened upon impact due to enough force being applied to maximize the compression. Golf Ball Compression: What Is It? [Complete 2020 Guide & Chart] (reachpar.com) Is that based on the wide variety of swing speeds?
