Bryson DeChambeau’s stunning stock yardages for each club in 2020

Published

on

It’s well known that Bryson DeChambeau’s weight gain over the past year has resulted in remarkable distance gains driver wise, but what about his other clubs?

Talking to GolfTV, DeChambeau broke down his stock yardages for 2020, and as you can see below, the numbers are impressive across the board.

Speaking at last week’s RBC Heritage, DeChambeau broke down how his stunning distance gains afforded him different luxuries at Harbour Town, including a two club change at 17 from previous years and not having to hit driver on a par 5 to get home in two.

“It’s just a complete quantum shift for me that just allows me to go at things that I usually are not able to go at.

Just for example, I hit 3-wood, 4-iron on 5 ( par-5 542-yard hole), another one. That’s a perfect example. That’s definitely different for me. I never thought I’d be doing that in my lifetime.”

However, DeChambeau’s immense driving was tempered last week by Harbour Town’s tight fairways, with the 5-time winner on Tour not hitting his driver once during Friday’s second round (he still shot 64).

Following that round, the 26-year-old stated that he “didn’t let the Kraken out today”. But you can expect to see that change this week at the Travelers Championship.

    None of the articles from GolfWRX or Golfweek, GD, etc. about this subject care to mention that he’s using one length clubs with jacked up lofts. Typical media hype.

    EGO, he wants to be the longer ever, and after watching him las week he seemed totally out of control. I don’t remember him Birdieing the firs Par 5 at one time, a 503 yd Hole. He had better carry an ax with his he is in the trees so much. He would be better swing in control and still hitting it a mile, but with some sore of accuracy. Plus he will feel that out of control Driver swing he has, kind of a lunge, in fact a big lunge. But we will see what happens when he plays a long wide open course. I like the guy but he has to wake up and control his Ball..

    Bryson’s clubs are incredibly strong lofted with a 7i shaft in the lower irons. No wonder he hits it that far. I hit my 4 iron 230 and it’s 23.5 degrees which is what his 5 iron is..

    42 degree pitching wedge says it all. Don’t be deceived.

      And it’s a 7 iron shaft. Pretty sure most guys with decent clubhead speed could hit that 160 easily.

    I find it funny that he list a 47 degree wedge (my PW and most people within a degree) and a PW. I think his PW is 43 degrees. I saw his 4 iron is 18 degrees. 5 iron is 23 degrees. He plays them all the same length but the lofts are very delofted. Like at least a whole club. hitting a 47 degree wedge 147 is not that ridiculous for those guys. An 18 degree iron would go 255 for any of the longest hitters. Essential this just shows that he’s as along as Dustin, Rory and such with irons. His driver was 5.5 degrees hitting up 6 or 7 degrees. Dustin plays like a 10.5 degree driver. It’s not that crazy the distance you can hit it with that low of a loft.

Tony Finau’s short driver backswing – Would he be the longest on tour by a distance if he wanted? 

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the driver distance Tony Finau generates with his short backswing. WRXer ‘TIScape’ posted a photo of Finau on 18 at Riviera at the top of his backswing from Sunday (above) and says:

“It amazes me how far Tony hits driver with his short backswing. This is a still from a video of his drive at 18 on Sunday at Riviera. Captured at the very top of his backswing. It’s almost as if he’s laying up with driver, and he still averages 306 yards! The clubhead speed he generates with that short swing is astonishing.”

Back in July, Finau showcased his fully extended driver swing in a practice round. The result? 206mph ball speed and a ridiculous 383-yard carry.

Check out the video below.

A post shared by Tony Finau (@tonyfinaugolf)

Our members have been discussing both his current driver swing and whether Finau could be comfortably the longest on tour if he wanted.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • chipa: “His swing is fun to watch. One thing I have noticed about a lot of big hitters is the forward hand position like Finau’s and then turning the left hand over immediately during the takeaway. DJ Johnson, John Daly, Mike Austin and quite a few long drivers use(d) this technique. I use it when I’m swinging my best and hope to have it mastered sometime soon. I have tried everything like the one piece takeaway, but I just can’t make it work and feel relaxed too.”
  • bscinstnct: “Man, if Tony could just get a little more confidence on Sunday with his putter. He’d basically be DJ. Just want to see him play his best a few times; he’d really light it up.”
  • mosesgolf: “TF said in an interview that he can easily attain 190plus ball speeds but won’t go there due to consistency and accuracy issues. Plus, it’s an avenue for injury to swing that hard.”
  • cardoustie: “Longest on tour if he wanted to be.”

This astonishing Tiger Woods stat sums up his greatness and perseverance since 2012

Published

on

There are countless achievements from Tiger Woods that will be talked about for years to come, and we can now add another to the list thanks to Brandel Chamblee.

The golf analyst took to Twitter on Monday, where he produced one of the most stunning Tiger Woods stats imagineable, which covers the tumultuous period of his career since 2012.

During this period, Woods reclaimed the number one ranking, endured 5 back surgeries, suffered from the chipping yips, an inability to practice, had a humiliating DUI and dropped to 1,199th in the Official World Golf Rankings before rising again.

Despite everything, as Chamblee posted on Monday, Woods has a better win % on Tour than the likes of Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka, with only Rory McIlroy having a marginally better win return since 2012.

There were some sceptics that the high win % was down to Tiger appearing so sparingly over the past few years. However, golf fans were quick to correctly point out that the 45-year-old continuously appears at the biggest events with the strongest fields, which makes the 11.7 win % over that period even more impressive.

Never, ever, write off Tiger.
