DeChambeau, “I won’t increase distance anymore”
Bryson DeChambeau (USA), a ‘strong long hitter’, declared that he would abandon the long hit-friendly golf style.
DeChambo announced on the 2nd (Korean time) that he would no longer try to increase the distance in an introduction to his current situation posted on the LIV Golf website.
DeChambeau is participating in the Asian Professional Golf Tour PIF Saudi International, which will be held in Saudi Arabia for four days from the 2nd.
DeChambeau was active on the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour and moved to LIV Golf last year. Despite his modest physique, he bulked up to increase his flight distance and increased his swing speed to an extreme, successfully transforming into a powerful long hitter. In 2021, he took the average drive distance of 323.7 yards and won the PGA Tour Long Hitting King.
DeChambeau, who debuted on the PGA Tour in 2017, made use of his college major (physics) and matched the length of all irons to the 7-iron (37.5 inches), and was called a ‘scientist on the field’. On the PGA Tour, he won a total of eight wins, including the 2020 US Open and the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational.
However, due to his excessive swing, he got injured frequently and went downhill rapidly. After showing sluggishness due to a wrist injury last year, he could not resist the temptation of ‘oil money’ and left the PGA Tour and received an astronomical down payment and moved to LIV Golf. 토토사이트
DeChambeau “He explained why he stopped obsessing over burgers by saying, “I realized the limits of my body and equipment.” At the same time, he added, “There is a limit to increasing swing speed with engineering technology.”
He underwent surgery to fracture his left wrist in April last year. It was the result of training too hard to increase swing speed. In December of last year, he even had a maxillary sinus retention cyst removed. In the meantime, he even went through the sadness of his father passing away.
Having successfully completed the maxillary sinus retention cyst removal surgery, he said, “Now I am full of energy. My thoughts have become clearer,” he said. “There is no blockage in speaking. I feel like I have returned to the me of 2018.”
It means that I am confident in many ways this year. “I want to be a dominant player like in 2018 (where I won four times),” said DeChambeau. “Now I am healthy and clear. It feels like going back to childhood. I gained more strength and my thoughts became clearer.”
