Bryson leaves Vijay mesmerized in unmissable video from the Masters

Published

on

Whether it’s calling Augusta National a par 67 or claiming he can live until 130, Bryson DeChambeau rarely disappoints, and the 27-year-old has already provided some unmissable content from this week’s Masters.

On the range on Monday, Bryson took to the hallowed turf of Augusta and began ripping drives at some speed, leaving former Masters champion Vijay Singh to abandon his own work to enjoy the show with a big smile on his face.

Check out Bryson going through his speed drill below.

Users on social media reacted to the video in their droves, with plenty of hilarious comments, including “When u bring ur new driver to the range for the first time” to “This is me pi**ed off on the first tee after hitting the first 3 OB”.

Bryson is already the talk of the 2021 Masters, and it’s still only Tuesday!

    Bryson’s not just a bomber
    He’s an accomplished strategist.
    His mind works on a level that few human beings can comprehend.

    Is it necessary to speed up the video? Kind of detracts from the experience.

    This is awesome. Pushing the game. Kinda surprising it’s taken this long for someone to push it this far with modern equipment.

    In tennis they figured it out quickly — bigger composite frames, esp. with addition of poly strings, didn’t allow you to hit it any harder (e.g., a pro can hit a serve just as hard with a wood frame Jack Kramer strung with gut as with a modern racquet) but the bigger face allowed players to take a bigger cut and to take more risks in terms of their angle of attack (because the racquet face is wider), which provided the double benefit of more velocity AND more margin for error (in the form of more spin to bring the ball back into the court).

    Obviously the pros are hitting it further and straighter since the arrival of the Pro V1 and big-headed drivers, but no one has really gotten after it like this until Bryson.

      So much truth here but without having a decent game past tee tee box, no one would be paying much attention.

Champions Dinner “pigs in a blanket” were probably not what DJ was expecting

Published

on

The annual Champions Dinner took place on Tuesday evening, with Dustin Johnson’s menu satisfying all the former Masters victors’ tastebuds.

To begin the meal, Johnson had chosen lobster and corn fritters and pigs in a blanket, but the 36-year-old may not have been expecting Augusta to put such an elaborate twist on an American favorite.

For starters, their name was changed to Smoked Kielbasa in puff pastry and served with a creole mustard sauce – and yes, they looked delicious.

To wash them down, DJ served Premier Cru Chablis in a setting that looked as serene and picturesque as one would expect at Augusta National.

Tiger’s seat was left open for the occasion, with the 15-time major champion unable to attend following his surgery for multiple leg fractures.

Bryson DeChambeau ready to attack Augusta National with ‘secret club’

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau has revealed that he has a secret club in the bag this week at the Masters, which has been a few years in the making.

Speaking during Tuesday’s press conference, the 27-year-old claimed that the club would be very beneficial as he continues to “go down numerous rabbit holes” as he looks to win his first green jacket.

Bryson didn’t go into the club’s specifics but was very bullish on how significant an impact the club could have this week.

“There’s something in the bag this week that’s very helpful. I won’t go into specifics but just know this has been a few years in the making and I’m very excited for it. 

Whether it helps me perform at a higher level, I’m not sure, because it’s golf and you never know what happens. Definitely what I’ve seen on the driving range and what I’ve seen the last week in practice, there’s some tremendous benefits to it.”

However, the Californian did go into detail on his game plan for the week, revealing how he plans to take some trees and bunkers out of play come Thursday’s opening round.

“I’m trying to see how far right I can go, over the trees, on the first. That is the line I want to take. Number 11, I can squeeze it down the right side pretty far. Number nine, I can take it over the left trees and get into that big expanse of grass, which is cool.

On five, I hit it over the bunkers into the wind. On three, try and drive the green this year. It’s a little firmer this year. This is a place where I do put an expectation value that I think I have a good chance to play well.”

DeChambeau will tee off at 1.36 ET alongside Max Homa and former champion Adam Scott.

Brooks Koepka’s knee injury forcing him to get very creative on the greens

Published

on

To many people’s surprise, Brooks Koepka is teeing it up at Augusta National this week, less than a month after undergoing knee surgery.

While the 30-year-old says the injury won’t affect him on the course, it is forcing the 4-time major champ to get very creative when both reading the greens and marking his ball this week.

Photos emerged on Tuesday of Koepka seemingly unable to put much pressure on his right knee, as you can see below when reading the greens during a practice round.

A post shared by Brooks Koepka (@bkoepka)

“Yeah, I can’t bend down. My knee doesn’t go. I mean, that’s the most stress you’re going to have on your patella. I don’t have that much motion in my knee. Prone I can get it to about 90 degrees and that’s about it. But getting down, I’m not going to be — it’s going to look funny, I know that. But what are you going to do. – Brooks Koepka

How much impact the injury will have on Koepka’s Masters chances remains to be seen, but the big-hitting American has made it clear that he is there to win.
