Nice catch. Wonder what he'll end up being happy with. A guy with his frame that he's built and being 6'1 I would think somewhere around 210 give or take would be really lean and athletic looking for him.

I don't understand how the spectacle has come to an end. He's cutting to get rid of some excessive fat, but wish to retain the strength. If anything, he will go from a little pudgy look to a more defined look. And that doesn't mean he's stopping the training. The spectacle is not that Bryson has gained weight, it's that he's become stronger and is hitting the ball a mile, which he will continue to do. It's quite normal for someone who has gained weight from strength training to accumulate some extra fat and cut at some point to get rid of it.

Quote

“I've cut down a little bit. I'm trying to lean out and retain strength,” DeChambeau said. “I'm trying to look better than look a little pudgy. I don't want to look that way anymore.”

Yup.  This may cause the nattering nabobs to natter even more, because, if he cuts while retaining muscle mass, he'll look even more "ripped" than he does now.

Flash from the past! 23 years ago John Daly attempts to drive Bay Hill no.6. Ends up with an 18! He wouldn't give up! Read all about it here

Long before Bryson DeChambeau thought about driving the lake at Bay Hill, John Daly put his stamp on history with an all-time blow-up on the hole.

I wouldn’t think too much about a click-baity title. It’s just how a lot of articles are written these days.

Anything Bryson does that goes against the grain is considered a spectacle.

I will say this, it's only a matter of time when this violent swing takes it's toll on him. Look at Tiger and the back problems he has had. I really enjoy watching BD, and root for him, but something will give out, a knee, back, shoulder, etc, in time.

Maybe.

Let’s beware of small sample sizes.

"In time" we all break down somewhat. He's trying to be the best he can be right now, I don't see this as a long term thing. He also has a good team around him, this has been years in the making of getting his body prepared to swing like this.

I have a buddy who does long drive and he just took 3 months off the give his CNS a break. Says that when he's going fast, especially in competition, he's almost on the verge of blacking out, heart rate gets super high. That might be more of a concern for Bryson than hurting a particular body part because of how amped up he has to get to take the governors off.

I agree here. I think that Bryson going through a cut is just the natural process that happens when you put on size. In my opinion, if he leans down, he will "look" bigger than he is now. I believe he sees his window to be the best and he is doing everything to make that happen "now." Going through a cut and shedding some of the fat may even allow him to reach greater swing speeds.  Bryson is a smart guy. I think he tones it down when it's time to tone it down.

When I saw Bryson on the range - sorry - Practice Facilty with Vijay, a minute ago I at first thought it was another player having a joke imitating Bryson. :-)

    • Day 163 (21 May 22) - left foot, skin breakdown again. Did some lag drills with the putter using heads up technique.  
    • Day 76.  Qualifier (stroke play) for my club's match play tournament.  Shot an 86 and qualified    Also in happy news:  my putting.  No, I didn't make many more putts, but I did miss in a lot better places.  My missed putts from long range are closer and my missed putts from 3-15' are typically going past the hole but leaving me with a tap-in (instead of 1-2').  I think this is a result of more putting practice and means the skill is improving because my misses are smaller.  
    • Had 3 birdies today, got to count one towards the challenge. 
    • So I just killed one of these tees. Still have 2 left though haha
    • My son had a club fitting today and he loved the Callaway Epic Super Hybrid. He is going to replace his 3W with a 5H Super Hybrid. The fitter said Callaway has ended production of this club and will sell them at the discounted price, which still seems kind of high to me, until they are all gone.
