Bryson DeChambeau – the longest serving golfer on the PGA Tour – has been at a pace of approximately 338 km / h in the past six weeks.
“I still try to practice to get the head of the club and the ball faster,” DeChambeau said Golf Channel on January 5, before the Sentry Tournament of Champions. The tournament kicked off on January 7, with 25 PGA Tour champions and 17 players entering the Tour Championship in 2020.
Yesterday, DeChambeau’s ball was as fast as 339.5 km / h in the start-up area, down to 323.5 km / h in the final hole of the test round. At this track, DeChambeau said he hit 205 yards with his number 8 iron.
After finishing T34 at the major Masters on November 15, DeChambeau went to coach Chris Como’s living room in Dallas every day to practice batting. The American player, born in 1993, said that he had a training session, the ball speed fluctuated in the range 333-338 km / h when he hit with the driver – a dedicated tee. DeChambeau is pleased with the new results. He said: “At that time, I thought, ‘Ok that’s good enough.'”
During his training days in Dallas, DeChambeau also competed against Kyle Berkshire – the defending champion kicking away from the world. Berkshire, born in 1996 also holds the record for ball speed – 367 km / h. He is planning his way to professional golf after a few years focusing only on “hole head gap”.
“I weigh a few pounds heavier than Kyle, but he’s always faster. It’s fun to have someone set a milestone instead of thinking ‘Oh I’m the fastest PGA Tour, no need to try.’ I want to compare with Kyle now on ball velocity, “DeChambeau added on professional goal.
DeChambeau is ranked first in ball speed in the PGA Tour this season, averaging 310 km / h with a club head speed of nearly 215 km / h. In September 2020, he won the US Open – the first major in seven PGA Tour championships by taking advantage of his forte and muscle strength in the case of the ball in the high and dense rough grass at Winged Foot.
The Plantation Stadium, par73 on the island of Kapalua, Hawaii – where the Sentry Tournament of Champions is hosted – is so steep that it has recorded many drivers exceeding 400 yards. This is a supporting factor for DeChambeau to break the kick-off record. The ceiling of Plantation’s long-range record at Plantation is recorded by the PGA Tour belongs to Davis Love III, with 476 yards from the top of hole 18, par5 at the 2004 Mercedes Championship.
