    with that surname gotta be of French heritage. How good is this guy? won both the US Amateur and NCAA individual championship. Now has 4 PGA titles as he wins back to back vs a stellar field . Cruised to victory both times

    he'll be on the STACKED 2018 US Ryder Cup......will majors be knocking on his door?


    nice story about his dad

    so do I, they never get old. Laugh out loud funny. An outlier for sure.

    'if there was ever a tournament in midnight i'd be the only guy under par, i'd know where to walk...right down the middle'


    Ryder Cup is going to be awesome. How can this US team lose?

    Johnson
    Koepka
    Spieth
    Thomas
    Woods
    Mickelson
    Fowler
    DeChambeau
    Reed
    Simpson
    Watson


    when have they had a team this deep?

    Johnson wants to be partnered with buddy Koepka, can you imagine? similar demeanor, same ball flight...both hitting casual stock fairway finders: carry 310, total 330yds.

    Back in my golf course superintendent days we had Moe Norman come to the course one day. That shit was truly amazing to watch. Literally every single time that old fucker hit the ball it was dead ass straight. Never seen anything like it. Obviously he was a character too. This was probably 2000-2001 so he was in his 70's at the time.

    I believe not only does this DeChambeau kid use the single plane swing I think he is the one that has every one of his irons the same weight and length too. Like every iron is the length of an average 6 iron. Doesn't matter if its a 3 iron or a 9 iron they are all the same length.

    DeChambeau wins The Shriners. Won 3 times a yr ago, and starts the new year with an early win. He has won 3 of his last 5 starts. He is now number #5 in the world.

    does he win a major in 2019?




    Cameron Champ at the par 5 9th , 553 yds; driver- 382 yards ...at the par 5 16th 526yds; driver- 362 yards


    ............all that was needed was Yanni genius to close.......

    wtf is DeChambeau doing? this guy is playing PGA Tour events as if they r muni courses. Will there be a bunch of copycat kids , follow his lead?






    here was the plan:.............executed.




    “I want to gain 20-to-25 pounds and gain 20-to-25 mph of ball speed off the tee,” DeChambeau told Nolan.
    “You’re crazy,” Nolan thought to himself. “He got a good laugh [from everyone there].”



    When he really wants to lay into a driver it looks like he's a candidate for a Long Drive Competition, out of balance has to move the lead knee away or risk damaging it, lol.. Leads the tour in driving distance . last 6 events ? 6 top 10's. i think his driver has 5 degrees of loft ,and he hits it 5 degrees up, the ball stays in the air seemingly forever. HOW DOES he stay somewhat accurate while generating that much clubhead speed? I say its gotta be the One Plane Swing, ala Moe Norman

    Insane
    Guy is fun to watch
    If he could dial in his short irons and touch around the green he'd be nearly unbeatable

    Couldn't back him in this tourney at such low odds (+700 to win, -175 top 10)

    BUT
    Bryson -145 over Reed today (Round 2 DM) sure seemed like a gift.
    Love Reed but he doesn't quite have it locked in right now.
    We'll see how it plays out.

    Certainly not interesting in taking him +220 to win or whatever
    Insane odds given leaderboard, you'd think he was up 3 strokes

    yeah, those odds are stupid. Guess laid out as he's a public fav now?

    GL with the bet Harry

    next stop on the bus for DeChambeau , for me anyway, would be a sports psychologist. The guy's mind seems to get in the way. Gets frustrated, face at times reads like a book. Needs a 'Tiger Mentality' , dont get too high or too low. Tiger has stated his greatest strength in his mind, and credits his Buddhist upbringing

    Bryson (-145) wins the matchup by 5 friggin strokes.
    Never in doubt.

    par 4 16th, 462 yrds

    driver 355 yds in the fairway, lob wedge comng in, lol



    we need this two-some

    9:55am tee time: B DeChambeau, C Champ



    Champ is juist as long AND is in beautiful balance at the finish, what a freak! Champ needs serious work on short game and irons (wedges ). Look at these round 1 numbers;

    driver ave: 346 yds, drivig accuracy : 78% GIR: 83 % and he shot 69!!?! WTF!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, he's making golf fun to watch but I think I saw DJ hit about 370 on 18 to win last week - he needed a 4 - could have played consistent golf and drove it 300 and had 130 in but had no concerns about crushing it
