Bryson DeChambeau is an American professional golfer on the PGA tour known for his unusual set of irons and his desire to merge the art of golf with science.
Born in Modesto, California in September 1993, DeChambeau played collegiate golf at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. While here the physics major began to read Homer Kelley’s The Golfing Machine, the text struck a chord with the young golfer leading him to adapt a single-plane swing approach.
In order to achieve this swing technique DeChambeau had his irons customised to each be the same length (37 ½ inches). His unusual approach more than paid off with DeChambeau winning the NCAA Men’s Individual Championship and the U.S. Amateur in the same year. Only four other golfers in history have been able to achieve this in a single season, putting DeChambeau in the same category with Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Ryan Moore.
DeChambeau turned professional in April 2016, waiting until the week after The Masters tournament as he had gained entry for the first time thanks to his U.S. Amateur title. The American finished his first appearance at Augusta T21 making him the low amateur of the year.
“It’s an honor that will stay with me forever and I’ll never forget this day,” DeChambeau stated afterwards.
The following week DeChambeau announced he would be teaming up with Cobra Puma Golf and making his first professional appearance at the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina on April 14, 2016.
