Ever since he debuted on the pro golf scene, Bryson DeChambeau has been turning heads. He is always on a quest to gain more distance and control by implementing a little science into his game. DeChambeau won the 2020 U.S. Open and has a quite a few other Tour wins under his belt. Even with all he has accomplished so far, Bryson is still looking for ways to improve his swing speed, distance and generally adding more power to his swings.
Recently he even competed at the World Long Drivers Championship just after the Ryder Cup and became the first-ever Tour pro to do so. Notably, he had an excellent event as he finished in the top-8.
Recently, an old video resurfaced showing a teenage Bryson before he became a famous face. Fans were excited to get a look at how much has changed for the golfer.
Bryson DeChambeau was a mere 14-year-old who explained how he picked up the game as a kid. Notably, Bryson started competing in tournaments when he was 8. However, it wasn’t long before he became the top-ranked teenager in California and started gaining recognition in the golfing world.
“I don’t really try to think about that as much. But it’s very, very fun for me. I enjoy having that reputation right now,” he says, on being the top-ranked teenager in California. Recalling his initial days, long drivers posted this video on their Instagram handle.
Undoubtedly, Bryson has come a long way since, from getting on the PGA tour to becoming an eight-time champion and a Ryder Cup champion. Now, he is trying to revolutionize golf by bulking up and gaining distance off the tee.
Notably, at 14, even though most of his time went in golfing, Bryson maintained a very high-grade point. DeChambeau had an excellent grade point average of 4.0 (A+), and he aspired to study at Stanford on golfing scholarship. However, Bryson attended Southern Methodist University and had a great collegiate golf career as well.
