‘Hulk’ Bryson DeChambeau (USA) gave up a long hit.
DeChambeau said on the LIV Golf website on the 2nd (local time), “I will no longer try to increase the distance as much as I have realized the limits of my body and equipment.” “There’s a limit to increasing swing speed with engineering,” DeChambeau said. “If you increase ball speed beyond 185 mph, it’s out of control,” DeChambeau said. It’s still impossible,” he said.
When DeChambeau set foot on the PGA Tour, he had a modest physique and recorded an average distance. However, by increasing his size and swing speed to the extreme, he transformed into a powerful long hitter and attracted attention. In 2021, he became the long drive king with an average drive shot distance of 323.7 yards. He was greedy for distance to the extent that he participated in long-hit competitions for two consecutive years in which long-hit players competed.
However, after De Chambeau’s wrist injury last year, his performance declined, and even after leaving the PGA Tour and moving to LIV golf, he did not show much performance. It was a year in which he had not won a single championship since his debut. In April of last year, he underwent surgery to fracture his left wrist. The injury was caused by training too hard to increase his swing speed. Here, I lost a lot of weight beyond digestion. It once climbed to 4th in the world rankings, but now it has fallen to 96th. 토토사이트
DeChambeau had a maxillary sinus retention cyst removed in December of last year. The disease made it difficult for him to breathe through his nose, and he often complained of dizziness and lightheadedness. “It was the biggest decision of my life,” he said. “I’m full of energy now.” He added, “My thoughts have become clearer,” adding, “I feel like I’m back in 2018.”
DeChambeau will participate in the Asian Tour 2023 season opener, PIF Saudi International, held at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Economic City this afternoon.
