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…

Kids his age drink a case of beer, sleep two hours, hit a water park where they eat hot dogs and nachos, blow up fireworks in their hands, and cap the event off with a bottle of Tequila. BDC incr

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.

    • When I saw the stance he was taking in the bunker, and how steep he had to swing, and what looked like a lie on the downslope, the first thought I had was that personally I would go out sideways or backward, because I would totally thin it over the green, or leave it in the bunker. Of course, PGA Tour players are miles better than me out of bunkers.
    • My compressor is at 90-100 psi, which is what I use for my finish nailers. It's never been a problem before installing/removing Pure grips. I rewatched the installation video on the website and there is no pressure recommendation. I found an older video which recommends 60-120 psi. I hold the grip lightly and do one quick burst which instantly loosens the grip, and then a couple more and it pops off. This time the bottom of the grip was completely stuck - I had to manually squeeze air from the ballooned upper part to loosen the bottom enough to pull it off. I emailed Pure to see if I did something wrong, or if it was possibly a defective grip. My hypothesis is that the lower part of the grip with less taper holds onto the shaft more tightly than the upper part due to thicker rubber, and at least in this case, this caused the air to take the path of least resistance, which was unfortunately blowing up my grip like a balloon.
    • You are getting close to my area.  Cascades, Calderone and Grande are all nice courses.  I am not sure the Grande allows walking.  I think their rates include the cart but maybe you can walk and just pay for the cart.  Cascades is a good walking course.  Calderone is a bit more of a chore with some distance between tee and next green.
    • Thanks for posting this. I immediately thought of Jon Rahm who has a short backswing, but seems to get his hands moving fast very early. In trying to get into a good impact position with hips and shoulders rotated without putting a bunch of stress on my lead knee, I have opened my stance. This has limited my backswing, which was a concern I had in being able to create clubhead speed.  I am thinking I can open my stance a bit and still get decent clubhead velocity. 
    • As good as that advice is, perhaps someone should have told him "Don't go from in play into the woods."  I thought the first play from the palmettos was pretty good, he had only one real option for an unplayable lie, and that was to go back to the fairway bunker.  I don't think he had a reasonable 2 clublength drop, and a drop in the bunker is likely to leave a partially plugged lie.  But for his next shot, from the back edge of the bunker, I thought perhaps he would have been better off playing sideways rather than towards the flag.   Given the location in the bunker, I didn't see any way to get it out and hit the green on the line he chose, it had to come out low and hot.  Of course, I've never understood the level of skills these guys have, maybe it was a good choice, and poor execution. I definitely admired his responses at the time, and in the interview afterward.
