Hey guys he did it. LOL! What was he, 190-200? Sitting around 240 now..pretty wild.

He would make a good club bouncer. And I don't mean that kind of guys like us who bounce a golf club off the ground when we get angry and throw it.

He would scientifically remove a customer from a bar for over drinking by explaining the nuances of his breath alcohol content and its ramifications on society.

Ok so he had a caloric surplus and worked out. Everyone can bulk up with that formula. That he made it seem like he and his trainer had some kind of secret fitness technique that nobody knows about is still ridiculous.

He's going to take six weeks off and come back completely jacked and looking like a different person? Sounds like some Instagram fitness BS. Next thing you know he's going to be promoting BCAAs.

I stand corrected about my previous comments. He definitely looks different. But I assumed he was trying to put on lean muscle and try to get jacked in a month or two, which doesn’t happen. Instead, he put on muscle along with fat and just got bigger. That’s not what most people picture when they think about body transformation.

His hat seems to look a little tighter around his head...

Also, Gary Woodland looks slimmer than I remember.

Watching the Tour live now. Unless he’s discovered some new type of abdominal muscles, he’s fat. He’s got a beer belly. That is not the best way to bulk up.

Now we can start the Bryson’s so fat joke thread.

I'm with ya. I made the post last October so he's had roughly 8 months to bulk. Definitely noticeable belly/love handle fat but also a lot of muscle mass gained too, he says he's gonna keep going until he reaches a point where he loses flexibility or isn't making distance/ball speed gains.

Ahhhhh youth. He’ll look back at this when he’s 40+ and wonder what the hell he was thinking.

I thought he hit the ball plenty far before bulking up. I think he might regret this at some point.

Most of the long drive guys are big for a reason.

His gains are coming into play at Colonial, which isn’t a bomber-friendly course:

A bigger, faster Bryson DeChambeau wasn't sure how much his newfound distance would help him at Colonial...

I wonder if this is going to start a new trend on tour. Tiger inspired a generation of golfers to work out, but they’re generally lean. This is definitely a different approach to the game.

I mean I can't believe nobody has brought this up, but it's pretty clear to me that Dechambeau realized he needed to add some size to stand a chance when Koepka physically pummels him the next time they're paired when Bryson plays a 6 hour round of golf.

I agree with you on this. 

You know how the media is though. They always have to work in the "mad scientist" angle. 

Personally, I think the guy is good for the game.

    • Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.   To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles? I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
