To describe Bryson DeChambeau’s approach to golf as ‘analytical’ would be putting it rather mildly.
The American, who will make his Ryder Cup debut at Le Golf National in France next week, has become notorious for trying all manner of quirky things in his bid to become one of the world’s top golfers.
It’s worked, too. He’s a four-time PGA Tour winner and the current world No.8.
Whatever he’s doing, it’s paying off handsomely.
Still, even by his own unconventional standards, his latest antics are completely eccentric.
Ahead of this week’s Tour Championship at East Lake – after which he could be $10m better off – DeChambeau was spotted on the range spritzing his golf balls with water… to replicate morning dew!
Bryson is using two launch monitors. Hitting brand-new balls straight out of the box. Someone scrubs his clubface before every shot, then spritzes the ball with water to simulate morning dew.— Sean Martin (@PGATOURSMartin) September 18, 2018
Chuckle all you want just now but if he banks an extra ten million this weekend, he'll have the last laugh.
