Self-confessed ‘golfing scientist’ Bryson DeChambeau could soon be adding to that title.


The 23-year-old, who is famed for his flat cap, single-length irons and putting his golf balls in Epsom salts, could soon be adopting a side-saddle putting approach – made famous by Sam Snead in the 1960s.
"He’s seriously considering it" - Tim Rosaforte

According to Golf Channel insider Tim Rosaforte, DeChambeau believes the style, which involves looking straight at the hole, can be ‘a game-changer’.

“He told me on the putting green at Silverado that he’s seriously considering going side-saddle putting in 2017,” said Rosaforte. “He tried it in college, had the lead in a tournament and didn’t close it but he didn’t have the type of putter made that he’s going to have now.

“He said, ‘Look I know everybody thinks this is odd, quirky and different, but that’s me’.”

Other than Snead, another player known to have experimented with side-saddle putting is South Korean K.J. Choi, who used the method in back-to-back weeks in 2010 at the John Deere Classic and Open Championship. He missed the cut in both events.

DeChambeau has struggled with his putting since turning professional. Last season, his strokes gained number was -.302, which would have placed him a lowly No.159 on the PGA Tour.

He earned his card for the 2017 PGA Tour season via the Web.com Finals, winning the DAP Championship last month, but disappointed in his first start as a fully-fledged PGA Tour member at the Safeway Open, where he missed the cut.
