Bryson DeChambeau Talks Long Drive
September 21, 2020
After winning the 2020 U.S. Open, Bryson DeChambeau said long-drive specialists such as Kyle Berkshire and Justin James “all inspired me to try and go harder at it. They are the ones breaking the barriers. I can see what is possible.”
Now it appears as if DeChambeau might go after another trait some on the long-drive circuit use in order to get even longer than he already is—a 48-inch driver.
Asked if his U.S. Open win validated his approach, DeChambeau did not hesitate. “Absolutely,” he said. “And I’m not going to stop. Next week, I’m going to be trying a 48-inch driver. We’re going to be messing with some head designs and do some amazing things with Cobra to make it feasible to hit these drives maybe 360 [yards], 370, maybe even farther. I don’t know.”
