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.

    • The podcast helps to serve the understanding of golf instruction and the dynamics between the two for majority of students who are not able to appreciate how long it takes to ingrain smallest of changes or are just straight up impatient.  I didn't hear anything that can be contradicted what was discussed, but I will say a lot of well meaning students see golf instruction as car-driving school or even skiing instruction - meaning, at the end of a few lessons and bit of guided practice, acquisition of some level of permanent competence is automatic given a basic ability to swing a club. I am not sure if that can be 'fixed'.  It's also so easy to give bad instruction and completely ruin the student swing. The struggle is real.. 😄. Maybe one thing I might suggest is that when a student is provided a priority, if a road map of next priorities to get to the 'promised land' can be laid out then may be a student would stick to the sequence of these priorities and not abandon it until the current priority is mastered - with a caveat of how it would be adjusted if necessary as things progress. A customized curriculum FWIW.  My two cents..  
    • A round in the life of a weekend hack:  So shot 37-47 = 84 (Par 70) yesterday. Hit every fairway on the front nine hitting slight pull cut (may be 5 yards curve at the most). It has been working fairly well last two months and am gaining a lot of confidence with it.  On the back nine, Hit ok drives on 10th and 12th and then it happened.... I had the bright idea of hitting a push-draw on 13th hole that is guarded by a tree on the right side of the fairway against anything but a straight ball or slight draw (left is OB death along the entire length of the fairway). Long story short, I hit the draw except it was a pull draw hitting it OB on the left. So double bogey #1.. On the 14th, I thought I just needed to make a slight correction to the pull and hit 'out' a bit. So I end up hitting a push over-draw - also OB left that tightly runs along the entire length of the fairway. Double bogey #2.  Pumped another one OB on 15th to a straight pull (attempting to get back to my 'glorious' pull fade) - double bogey #3,  By now, my mouth was completely dry and I was struggling to remember what day it was.. lol.. and and promptly proceeded to hit another OB on 17th wayyyy out right in full correction mode - this one came with a wonderful triple bogey!     Finally I came about my senses and piped one straight down on 18th and finished with a par.   All I could tell myself was it was good battle. 😂  
    • Just got around to listening to it. Enjoyed the discussion. It was neat to feel like a fly on the wall listening to two good instructors discuss what makes a good student. I liked the concept of the student's swing being a puzzle, and that as an instructor it is satisfying to solve the puzzle. I also liked the concept of having the student come up with a feel themselves. The discussion on a student's feel for a change shifting was interesting. This is something I struggle with, as in after the initial physical change feels begins to normal, I continue to exaggerate more to keep feeling it, but then it overdoes whatever correction was being made. The only thing that bugged me was the audio quality discrepancy between Mark and Erik, and the "Bank of Now" ads.
    • On a work trip, so no videos, but I do have a club and I am doing some mirror work.   Currently focused on four "feels": 1) left hand over right toes/elbow over right ankle when I'm taking the club back 2) right arm on top of left  3) right shoulder as far away from right ear as possible (an@iacas swing thread feel from way back) 4) my elbows staying closer together   Three and four are closely related, meant to get my right elbow into a "pitch" position instead of the "punch" I've always been in. One and two help keep the club head outside the hands while getting the arms deep.  I'm seeing good progress. I'm keeping the "right arm on top of left" feel all the way to the top of the backswing. It feels to me like im super steep, but the mirror shows I'm almost in line with the shoulder plane, and any quote-unquote steepness is a result of my right arm being in "punch" position at the top. I'm not sure if my right shoulder is way too stiff for external shoulder rotation or if I'm just not used to it. My guess is the former rather than the later.  Anyway, on a good path.
    • Day 583: Range today working on the same items. Started with irons and setup. Worked on Leaning Tower feel. With driver, focused on setup with more knee bend and clearing hips in the backswing. Ball flight was slight pushes with driver. With irons, I had some pulls until I went back to the knee bend setup feel and clear hips. Finished with some chips on the practice green.
