Though driving distances on the front were 388 (Wolff) and 374 (Beefcake), the bombs were their eagle putts on 9.
I guess it's working...2 majors- 1 win and was in contention at the other...Golfer Bryson DeChambeau Explains How Gaining 20 Pounds of Muscle Transformed His Game
DeChambeau knew that building strength would help him in terms of speed and length in his drive, but that wasn't his sole motivation...the last eight months' training have also been in pursuit of a longer-term lifestyle change...
I vote for no more crowds. It's so much better without fans in any sports.
I agree. I got tired of hearing “go in the hole”. And I’m sure the players don’t miss the distractions and can focus better.I'm not sure if there's a correlation but at least in the NBA and NFL, quality of play has gone up without fans
It's the ball, dimples, agronomy, shafts, club heads, physical fitness, computer science, etc. Outside of using a featherie, you'd hafta cut back on everything.I think somehow they need to cut back the distance Bryson and others are hitting the balls.Maybe do something to the clubs and balls. If they dont the courses will become a joke.There isnt room on some of the courses to make them any longer.We dont want to see 300 yard par 3,600 yards par4.
Bryson tees it really high, and the driver head catches the ball on the upswing. They're all doing that now, more or less, but he's just more extreme than the rest. Launch angle gives him that height, and there's probably some spin involved as well that helps it climb a bit more.I have questions. What’s with DeChambeau hitting a 5 1/2 degree driver higher than everyone else? I know his ball speed Is often in the 186mph range, but that does not explain the height with that flat driver. Must be higher spin. What was more surprising was Wolff staying up with him with that weird Jim Furyk looking thing going for him. I can see raw muscle creating speed, but where does Wolff get his beside jumping out of his shoes?
Some exciting stuff here for this old geezer.
Those short roughs at the Masters, if they dare to stick to them, has to look mighty inviting to the new bombers.
Considering how big a booster he was of Chambers Bay, I'm guessing it'll be a short course designing career.
I'm pretty sure he's made enough money that he doesn't really need to work anymore. Given the current situation in the world sometimes you just need to step back and take a look at what you are doing and what do you want to do. If you have the ability to make changes to enjoy yourself more and take some stress out of you life some of us will choose to do it. Some people need the power and the spotlight and some of us can just say I'm good, time to move on.Considering how big a booster he was of Chambers Bay, I'm guessing it'll be a short course designing career.
Not to mention the times in which we live. Much of the work left is tweaking existing courses.
In our forums, our members have been discussing Rory McIlroy’s latest tease that he may be adding even more distance to his game.
