They really aren't though. Maybe in his practice room where he doesn't have to worry about position, but on course he isn't that close to LD competitors. They post swing speeds in the 140s and I don't know if Bryson has cracked more than low 130s on course. Ball speed can be close to 220 in LD, where Bryson isn't pushing more than 193 on course. Look at the first drive in this video. You think Bryson is putting up these numbers?

Bryson is extremely long by playing standards. He manages to keep it very very VERY straight for how far it is going. A couple of them get away from him from time to time, but mostly he is in play, and so close to the pin that it doesn't matter what kind of shape he is in as long as it isn't penalty.

What Bryson does is a big time feat, but to compare him to a long drive hitter isn't giving Bryson enough credit IMO. He follows the formula for launch, but manages to control it enough to make it very usable on course. A LD range is up to 60 yards wide, and those guys usually only land 1-2 balls out of 8 within the grid. PGA tour fairways are usually around 30 yards wide, and Bryson is on or close on most of his drives.

Edit* bonus reference:

Bryson is using a Cobra SZ driver with only 5.5 degrees of loft. It may not be as long as the sticks the LD guys use, but it is definitely "tweaked" as you put it. No one else uses something like this.

It’s tweaked for golf performance. If BD was only doing distance and had 8 tries to hit the grid ....he would use a different driver.

 

@billchao....I’m confused...the USGA limit is 48”. On the LD TOUR it’s 50”. I’m saying if Bryson was simply going for LD he would use the 50” most certainly.

You’re correct. I was only thinking about the club head, not the length :doh:

I believe Phil played a sub 7 degree driver for a while. Not sure what is in his bag now. 

I forgot about this. I shouldn't say "no one ", but a select few that are sub 7.

Watching him the last two weeks, he may want to dial back his drives to keep eleminate so many half shots into the green.  

He may also want to dial back on his 4 woods out of 6 inch deep rough.

We really shouldn't be talking about the 10 he made. It could be bad for someone's brand.

Bryson seems like the kind of guy who probably knows exactly how far back to take what club to produce what distance.  I think if this distance of his continues, he'll get really good at those partial wedges too -- both from practice and experience.  

I'm better from 50 yards than from 100, and I'll bet he is too, and if he isn't, that's something he can fix real quick.

Here is an interesting article about DeChambeau at the 2016 Masters

FROM THE ARCHIVES: THE INVENTIVE MIND & FAITH-FILLED SPIRIT OF BRYSON DECHAMBEAU

 Bryson was low amateur and T21 overall.

He is a bit of a goofball but he appears to have taken that minimal Moe Norman swing plane approach to a new level with the added bulk. He appears to have the long shots dialed. When it kicks in for all his clubs, watch out.

The way he played this week, I think that he has a shot. I'm curious to see what the odds makers will put him at to win (and at to top 10). Just looked up a futures....Rory at +1100, Rahm and BDC at +1200, Koepka and JT at +1400.....out of that bunch and with those odds JT and BDC are a tight call for me. Not a gambler here, but I do pay attention to that stuff because it gives an idea of what we can expect (most of the time)

The Masters isn’t a course built for just the power game. Look at the list of winners. Other than Bubba, most have good but not great long games off the tee. I know folks are excited he won, but Morikawa has a game that may fit Augusta better.

Bryson gained over a stroke per round in all four areas of the game, Scott.

It was as complete a performance in a major as we have seen in awhile.

Absolutely. He played great in areas other than driving including great short game recovery. I am just pointing out that his driving was not miles longer than anyone else the way the announcers were.

    • Played again this morning to try and get out before a lot of people came (no tee times required at the Methodist course). And honestly, not much to say about the round. I can pretty much summarize today’s round by saying this: I had a rough start and couldn’t get anything going. Parred 10 and 11 to start the back nine, but a three-putt for bogey on 12 ruined my momentum. The final numbers were 47-44 for a 91. Not great. I also have a required PAT in two weeks at that course (more about that in my blog post today), so I’ve gotta get working.
    • Day 28: 8/13/2022 Worked on my priority pieces today with a 7 iron. It was all block practice. However, I only focused on one thing at a time. Working hard to try to get a movement engrained into my swing. No random practice today. 
    • Just curious, why did you bring this thread back to life? 
    • I have a golfing friend whose entire body is pretty beat up from multiple injuries.  Hits down on the ball a lot.  He's close to a scratch player.  A true range rat.  He finds 4 pine cones to put in a rectangle under the mat aligning with his hitting area.
    • Thanks for all the good ideas. I’m current practicing on a new Top Tracer range at our course. The mat does seem softer than many I have used at regular driving ranges. But still you can tell if you hit it really fat. It hurts. The data it gives for each shot isn’t very informative. It shows carry, total distance, height and how much it curves. I think we can tell most of that without the feedback.
