Bryson DeChambeau: ‘This is how I gained 30mph ball speed with an iron’

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau’s epic distance increase has been one of the main talking points in the sport over the past 18 months, with the 27-year-old’s speed sessions being so intense that he almost passes out.

But just what goes into these intense training protocols that have transformed Bryson’s game?

Thanks to the man himself, we can all take a peek into what exactly occurs during these sessions, as Bryson has dropped a new video on YouTube fully explaining how he picked up 30mph ball speed with an iron.

The video documents Bryson’s intense training to reach 160mph ball speed with an 8-iron, including a ruthlessly motivated team getting him fired up as part of the process.

In the first 20 minutes of his warmup, Bryson hits 53 balls. Though it’s clear the Californian isn’t exactly enjoying the process, the video documents how fully committed and determined he is to achieve his goals.

After 220 swings, Bryson is out on his feet from the brutal regime that you can see in full below.

    Bryson would be more pleasant company vs Koepna for 18 holes. Why all the hate?

    For all the hate, it is seriously impressive to play at this level, with this speed in a relative short amount of time for the transformation.

    I would have to question if his body can maintain the bulk and speed for an extended period of time. 27 now, can he keep this up for another 5 years without injury?

Smylie Kaufman explains brutal 1-foot miss at Monday Qualifying

Published

on

We’ve all heard stories about how cutthroat Monday qualifying is each week, but Kaufman’s tale is a real heartbreaker.

Kaufman missed out on a playoff by one stroke, and the crucial one stroke needed to make up the ground was a missed 1-foot putt.

The Alabama native took to Twitter on Tuesday explaining the missed 1-foot putt, which he put down to: “not realizing my ball accumulated so much water and sand” after a rain delay.

Golf fans were perplexed by the incident, with many not sure if Kaufman had failed to mark his ball, but it’s more likely that the putt was his second after the restart. Just brutal luck.

The 29-year-olds fall from grace has seen him drop to 1530 in the World Golf Ranking, having made just one cut worldwide since 2019.

Published

PGA Tour professionals are imperious at looking cool under pressure, but in reality, they aren’t immune to high moments of stress.

Thanks to Whoop’s partnership with the PGA Tour, now us mere mortals can all see exactly how the best are feeling.

The most stressful moment for Rory McIlroy at Quail Hollow last week came on the 72nd hole when he hooked his 3-wood off the tee dangerously close to the water.

Per Whoop Live, the Irishman’s BPM (Beats per Minute) spiked to 140 following the tee shot. It settled back to 115 as he addressed his approach to the green but once again rose dramatically following his putt to win, with his BPM hitting a remarkable 151.
