Bryson DeChambeau - Oy

Recommended Posts

Bryson made it to the final day's competitions in the round of 16. Competition starts at 6:45PM ET this evening, and concludes sometime tonight, so it ought to be interesting to follow how he does in the head to head matchups.

Kudos to Bryson for his pledge to return all of his winnings in the competition back into the prize pool for other competitors. Even winning the entire event the cash value would be relatively meaningless to him, but for the guys who only do long drive it makes a lot bigger difference.

Well his ride ends at the top eight, as he was not one of the top two in his block, being defeated by Justin James (who got only one ball in bounds) and Martin Borgmeier from Germany, 403 and 397 to 391 by Bryson.

I bet he smokes them on hitting the grid.

Just watching the highlights, it definitely seems like he was putting them in play more consistently.

You guys ever notice that there is something Mo Norman-ish about Bryson’s swing?

The setup, yeah. But the extra 100yds or so kinda makes me lose the comparison.😄

Ha!  Not necessarily the same or anything.    Just looks like there are some swing similarities at set up, through the ball and finish.     Especially, from face-on, looks a lot more like Mo than Tiger or someone similar.  
 

would love to hear someone that knows more about good swings than me weigh in.

With legal substances? Yes I agree. You can’t be serious in thinking a tech head like BDC would use banned substances. That’s completely against his ideology on how he looks at golf I believe.

Bryson DeChambeau, ahead of the Hero World Challenge, told the New York Post he almost quit golf this year. Here’s what turned him around.

Oh give me a break:

DeChambeau, who shot a 64 during Friday’s second round at the Hero and will enter the weekend with a one-stroke lead, told the Post that he began thinking of his future following the fallout from his comments in early August on the Covid vaccine. At that point, DeChambeau shut down most interview requests until the Ryder Cup in late September.

“I got hit pretty hard,” DeChambeau told the Post. “That’s why I kind of walked away, because people were damaging [my] character. It was all the stuff that was going on in social media. I was like, I really don’t need this. I can walk away and be totally fine the rest of my life, be happy and go and hit the long ball and call it a day.”

The only comments that "damaged" his character were the ones he made himself.

The guy is a doofus.

I had kind of moved on from his stupid vaccine comments (and some of the other things he’s said too) until he reminded me by talking about it in this article.

You never know. I thought the same thing about Lance Armstrong - cancer survivor, top of the world. Obviously a different sport and person, but I believe that any athlete that performs much better than everyone else is a little suspect. Please don't take this comment as  saying that all (or even many) athletes that push performance boundaries are doping. I'm just saying that an athlete's perceived behavior or ideology is probably not a good predictor of whether he/she dopes or not.

 But it is with BDC and golf as a sport. Cycling was/is  riddled with cheaters. Armstrong had so much pressure/obsession  to win and he knew there were many, many other doping schemes taking place. Bryson is certainly wanting to explore his limits and how they can apply to golf. But doing that taking illegal substances simply isn’t in the realm of BDC nor golf imo. So in the end I’m not saying my assumption of BDC refers to any athlete or sport. Just BDC and golf.

    • TIL: Well, at least from someone who knows hockey, what he told me. That defense and goalies have gotten better so an uptick in deflection scores. That pickup the puck off the ice move looks pretty hard. Especially to do it that quickly under the time pressure of a game. Kind of reminds me of juggling a golf ball, but that skill doesn't help much with scoring in golf whereas in hockey, it did here. I don't watch hockey and don't know it as well as other sports, but this looks like it was quite something.  
    • That's why I said I know it's harsh. My point was essentially a philosophical one. People change their minds about war when they have had first hand experience of it. It has to be personal for some people. Some people can only understand domestic abuse when it affects them personally. Some people can only understand genocide when they have a family connection. People decide to get vaccinated when they think "Shit... x died. I'm getting vaccinated." I get you....I'm making a point in a way that can make me look bad. But I do think the point is valid. Which is why I phrased it the way I did. And..... I accept your criticism. It is not unfair.  
    • He might play Bay Hill at some point… but even that's unlikely, I think. Three majors (not the U.S. Open?). Maybe Riviera (pretty flat, benefits TWF). Those are the tier 1 tournaments, I think. Maybe the Players, since he can bunt it around and putt and it's a flat site, and it pays out a good bit too. I think he'll play six events a year.
    • Do you have evidence of this? Because that section of the road is notorious, and sees a lot of crashes. So do you have evidence that everyone else who wrecks there who isn't Tiger Woods has gotten a charge? And that Tiger wasn't cited for something? The police said he didn't appear to be impaired. So, having been defeated by logic on that, you now make assumptions about what charges he or others would have or should have or could have faced?
    • Yep, you can have compassion, though it seems in short supply, for those who chose poorly.
