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

Other than his pace of play, I agree.

I think he just likes to be different. Nothing wrong with that but sometimes he takes it a little too far, IMO. Not with this topic though, because he seems to be onto something, even if it isn’t my cup of tea.

I don’t think he’s thinking of that at all. He is different but not because he wants to be. Incessantly milling over air density numbers prior to a shot is OCD. OCD ranges all over the place from minor, insignificant actions such as straightening a crooked picture to totally disrupting one’s life.

Wanting to bulk up and hit the ball further is just Bryson trying to figure how to be more successful on tour ...and that’s fine. It seems to me the bulking as he did it isn’t the best way or even necessary to achieve more distance. Lots of golfers have improved their distance without bulking up. But I’ll admit it’s probably easier to go from 245 to 275 than it is to go from 315 to 345. Just as it’s easier to go from a 20hcp to a 10 than a 10 to scratch.

Hey!  Are you making fun of Ben Hogan?!  He wore a funny hat, too.

Don’t be jealous.

It is entertaining to see him drive it. I wish it wasn’t at Colonial though. Not the best course to just rip it all over the place.

Tiger puts on about 20 lbs of muscle over the course of five years and is accused of doping. This asshole puts on close to 40 in half a year and nothing.

watching him play in the first event after the shutdown at the colonial. He is absolutely HUGE. He has to be juicing! He dwarfs everyone else in the field and it’s not even close. A lot of people suggested Tiger used PEDs in his heyday. His body looked a little bulked but, nothing like BDC. It’s borderline ridiculous!

He has certainly put a hurting on the myth that bulk is the enemy of speed. Poor Chamblee has  some soul searching to do.

In 10 years or so, he’ll look like John Daly with a funny hat!  

Minus any personality though...

He put on 40lbs, not 40lbs of muscle.


Am I the only person here that watches the long drive competitions? Those guys aren't small.

I have read through this thread and I see that the vast majority of posts are "snarky". very little intelligent discourse. It's OK to disagree with the man's approach to becoming better at his chosen profession; but make your point without the snarky comments and name calling.

Bryson is very transparent about what he is attempting to achieve, if you followed him on Twitch and Instagram you would know this. One of his goals is to be the longest hitter on tour; a goal which he has achieved.

Follow Bryson on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/thebadone23 

Check out his "numbers" to see how he has progressed: 

 

 

Also he shares his thought on the golf swing quite readily - you might disagree with his ideas - fine, present your counter arguments. 

For example read this golf digest article and share your thoughts:

Bryson DeChambeau was full of helpful tips that can improve your golf swing's consistency and power, all through his Twitch stream.

    • 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.
