Washington Post: Golf has never seen anyone like DeChambeau

Golf has never seen anyone like Bryson DeChambeau
By Thomas Boswell
September 20, 2020

Golf may be the most convention-bound, mentally constrained game in the world of sports. The traditional is almost worshiped. New ideas are fought or mocked.

And the very notion that almost everybody in the game has been doing almost everything wrong for generations — but that one young heretic figured it out, mostly by himself — is nearly terrifying.

On Sunday, Bryson DeChambeau, who is the embodiment of just such a dangerous, analytical, self-secure and stubborn man, blew up the golf world’s idea of logic.

With a 6-under-par, six-shot win over Matthew Wolff at trembling, frightened Winged Foot, the 27-year-old, who has bulked up until he looks like a pro linebacker, humiliated the mightiest of U.S. Open venues just as it has humiliated so many.

Scott Van Pelt just compared DeChambeau to Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.

He didn't say he's their equal, but he did point out that by winning an NCAA title, U.S. Amateur and now U.S. Open, DeChambeau has joined some rather elite company.

Drove the green on a 380 yard par 4 twice this week in Vegas, converting the eagle putt the 2nd time he drove that green. Pretty wild
