1. He's a self-confessed 'golfing scientist' and has a major in physics from Southern Methodist University.
2. He has a fascination with the cult instruction book - The Golfing Machine
3. All of his irons and wedges are the same length (37.5 inches), lie and bounce angle - something which has never been seen before - and are made by Edel Golf
4. He tests his golf balls in Epsom salts
5. He's only the fifth golfer in history to win the NCAA and US Amateur titles in the same year (after Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Ryan Moore)...
6. ...but he isn't able to defend his NCAA title this year after SMU were banned for 'recruiting violations and unethical conduct'
7. So, it looks as though he's likely going to turn pro after the Masters
8. In his spare time, he likes to do some tightrope walking...
9. ...and hang out with Mark Wahlberg...
10. The 'legend' Justin Timberlake is another of his famous friends
11. He can sign his name backwards with his left hand
More on Bryson, this is how he signed my flag this week -yes that's written backwards & left handed. Love that guy! pic.twitter.com/vmCwznH7Fn

12. Jordan Spieth is only 50 days older than him
13. His father, Jon, was one of Northern California's top amateur golfers
14. He made the cut on his PGA Tour debut at the FedEx St Jude Classic, finishing T45...
15. ...but didn't make it to the weekend on his major championship debut at the US Open a week later
16. He was the USA's only unbeaten player during last year's Walker Cup at Royal Lytham & St Annes
17. He finished runner-up at the Australian Masters in November
18. And he's already gained the utmost respect from the pros
Played with Bryson Dechambeau today. Quite possibly the most impressive player I have ever seen...I like the cut of his jib too
