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.

Have you seen his ball speed increases?

Hey, that's the same plan I'm on.  Except for the working out part.

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.

    • My wife is a non-golfer.  We are both pretty independent and have our own interests, and support both being able to do the things we enjoy as long as it doesn’t get out of whack.  When the kids were younger, it was definitely harder to get out more than once a week.  Now that they’re starting to do their own thing, I get out twice a week (sometimes three).  I have a feeling I’ll be able to get in a lot of golf and mountain biking once we’re empty nesters.  All I can really suggest is try to support what she likes (which it sounds like you do), while helping her understand the thing(s) that you get joy out of and ask to receive support from her on that.
    • Day 25: Today I played a simulated round. The warm up was focused on my transition move, trying to shallow the club and have it not get more deep and behind me. I decided to “play” the round and commit to swinging that way even if I missed the ball. The goal was to work on the move even during a round, even though I know it wasn’t a real round. The scoring was terrible as I had alot of difficulty hitting the ball solid. Path was too much in to out but face angle was less shut to path than usual. 
    • Yeah, that's not really how you're supposed to do it. Put a ball down, putt it to a hole, then put another ball down somewhere else, almost kinda random, putt to a different hole… etc. You don't get a bunch of 12-footers in a row on the course.
    • Day 166.  Another dozen, same as the past few days. This has been a long week at work, and I'm glad for this challenge because without it I might make an excuse to not hit any balls, and I'm still glad I did the normal practices.  I acknowledge I'm not varying it very much the past week.
    • Thank you @iacas really appreciate the response.
