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…

Bench presses 295 although not part of his daily routine if I read that right.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

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.

    • Yeah, I get that they've changed the lofts. It matters not to me, So long and I play old sticks I don't need a gap wedge and so long as I know how far each club works--the numbers on the bottom are irrelevant. My irons/approach game is blades and there's where it'll stay unless someone wants to sponsor me to play their stuff (I'm open to options, but not expecting any business in that regard!😄 I just smashed a nasty old ball out across the pasture as my last shot in practice tonight. I hit balls every day when I'm into it-mostly short stuff for those up and downs and other such necessities It's coming back. I've got to set up a net for more full-swing stuff in the back yard. I tried the Ping stuff back in the olden days and it just left me flat. Bad hits made acceptable and good hits flew nice but the feel was about the same. I never tried to work the ball with them I just could'ntt handle the non-communication/connection to my hands. Never bought a set and got used to that sort of game. I was content beating the old guys with whatever they were swinging.  One of the best in my dad's group hit those silly looking Browning 440's!   They sure worked for him.  My pop had the Ping Eye2's and I forget what before, but he never beat me at golf after I turned 16-despitei being a weekly player.  His game was more in the beer and the bets. I tried working with him but he would never practice--had a horrible reverse weight shift thing going on. We made videos--on VHS!  
    • When someone suggests that a rule should be different, the first test in my mind is whether the change is an improvement, or just a change.  There are lots of issues where there may be a personal preference to one side or the other, but neither is demonstrably better.  You've expressed a preference, but I can't say you've shown it to be better to have a choice.  Indeed, minimizing potential confusion and pace of play issues is, in my opinion, an advantage to the current system.  I definitely don't see an advantage to the "choice" system that more than offsets the advantages included in the current system.  
    • The chorus of this song is an earworm.    
    • I've got: 3W 19-degree hybrid or 20-degree utility iron Iron set starts at 4-iron Reasons: I don't really think too deeply about gapping with my long clubs (as long as the distances aren't overlapping or bunched). I am not a good enough ball striker to need more than ballpark distances for gapping with fairway woods/hybrids/utility irons (I do care about gapping with irons/wedges though). 3W: I don't use my 3W that often, and I could probably leave it home and not notice. It is in the bag for 240+ yard approach shots like a 2nd shot into par-5, but my home course has relatively short par-5, so this is not common. Sometimes I will tee off with 3W just to make sure I get at least one or two swings with it a round. If I am playing away from my home course, I use 3W more often. 19-deg hybrid: Until recently, a hybrid was always my go-to club for tee shots on mid-length par-4 (say 380 yards or less), or just when driver is squirrely. I also like having this club for 220-230 yard approach shots, usually on a par-5. For whatever reason, I've always felt confident with a hybrid in hand on the tee - like I am going to keep the ball in play, and set myself up for a successful approach shot (not sure if my stats back this up or not though). 20-deg utility iron: Recently put this in the bag, at expense of the hybrid. The hybrid flies further, but I feel like my misses with long iron/utility iron are less severe than with hybrid/fairway wood type heads. Example, when I hit a pull with a hybrid or fairway wood, it is usually a pull draw, and ends up left of left. But when I hit a pull with a long iron/utility iron, there seems to be less curve in the miss, and the ball stays in play (this is completely anecdotal and I'm not sure if stats back it up). Still seeing how I feel about hybrid vs. utility iron and which one I'll end up keeping.
