Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau is an amateur golfer with an impressive record of phenomenal accomplishments. I think it’s fair to say he’s the best amateur in the world.

He’s only the fifth golfer in history to win the NCAA and US Amateur titles in the same year (after Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Ryan Moore)

Here’s a snapshot of DeChambeau’s playing history and game…

DeChambeau’s Mentors

DeChambeau’s instructor, Mike Schy. Says Bryson: “After a couple of years of guidance from Mike, we came up with a single-plane swing from The Golfing Machine that’s called a ‘zero shifting motion’ more technically. I picked a certain specific set of variations for my components and made my golf swing what it is today.”

Homer Kelley, creator of “The Golfing Machine” — the most widely used textbook on golf instruction in the world.

Moe Norman, a real-life golfing machine — the world’s greatest ball striker. He was able to repeat endless solid shots with his unorthodox yet highly-effective one plane swing. The eccentric Canadian pro provided DeChambeau with a precedent, if not a model for his own swing.

Is Bryson DeChambeau the Next Big Thing in Golf?

He may just be. There’s no question he’s the hottest young golfer to watch in 2016. His unconventional style, equipment and swing sets him apart, for sure. He’s fun to watch, he does things his own way and he has some fresh ideas that may just set the world of golf on a whole new path. Bryson DeChambeau is an impressive guy with plenty of talent, smarts and good looks. It’s going to fun watching him perform at The Masters and subsequently, most likely wet his feet in the pro circuit. I wish him the very best!
