Bryson DeChambeau (USA, 30), a super long hitter, declared that he would no longer risk his life on long hits. This is because excessively increasing the flight distance put a lot of strain on the body.
In an introduction to his current situation posted on the LIV Golf website on the 2nd (Korean time), DeChambo said that he would no longer strive to increase the distance. When he entered the PGA Tour, DeChambeau’s stamina and distance were normal. However, he changed after he decided to walk the path of a long hitter.
He transformed into a powerful long hitter by increasing his size and swing speed to the extreme. And in 2021, he became the long drive king with an average drive shot distance of 323.7 yards.
In addition, the desire for long hitting was hotter than any other player, such as participating in the long hitting competition for two consecutive years in which players specializing in long hitting compete. However, his performance declined after a wrist injury last year, and he did not show much performance even after moving from the PGA Tour to LIV golf.
On this day, DeChambo also revealed his diet situation. Over the past summer, he has also lost nearly 10 kg of weight.
DeChambo cited limitations in his body and equipment as the reason he said he would not dwell on long hits. He said, “There is a limit to increasing swing speed with engineering technology. He explained the reason for giving up long shots, saying, “If you hit a ball with a ball speed of 200 miles per hour and drop it on the fairway, it would be a surprise and an absolute weapon, but that is still impossible.”
The body was also strained. DeChambeau underwent surgery for a fractured left wrist in April of last year, an injury caused by training too hard to increase his swing speed.
As a result, his performance also suffered. Last year was the year he hadn’t won a championship since his debut. DeChambeau, who had risen to 4th in the world rankings at one time and now fell to 96th, showed confidence that he will finish reorganization this year and rise to the top again. DeChambeau revealed that he underwent surgery to remove a retention cyst in his maxillary sinus in December of last year. 메이저사이트
DeChambeau, who had trouble breathing through his nose because of a maxillary sinus retention cyst, often complained of dizziness and lightheadedness. He has had this disease since April 2020. “It was the biggest decision of my life,” said DeChambeau, who chose his surgery. I am full of power now. My thoughts have become clearer,” he said. “There is no blockage in speaking. I feel like I have returned to the me of 2018.” He continued, “I have aspirations to become an overwhelming player like in 2018 (where I won four times),” and “I am healthy and clear now. It feels like going back to childhood. I felt stronger and my thoughts became clearer. It is very scary (to other players),” he added.
DeChambeau will participate in the Asian Professional Golf Tour PIF Saudi International, which will be held for four days from the 2nd.
