Did you know?

It's perhaps no surprise to discover that DeChambeau majored in physics at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. His thorough and "scientific" analysis of the golf swing resulted in some "revolutionary" thinking about the mechanics of his swing ... much of which is now applied to his own game ... with very few other professionals following his lead. Clubs all cut to the same length, and all with the same lie and bounce, is one hallmark of the DeChambeau approach to golf. Another is not cocking his wrists, but keeping every swing on the same plane throughout the swing. And another is the use of super-Jumbo grips, which allows him to keep the grip in his palm rather than fingers.

All this "appliance of science", and plenty of natural ability, allowed DeChambeau to win the top prize in US men's collegiate golf in 2015 (the NCAA indvidual championship) and in the same year the coveted US Amateur Championship ... both these titles in the same year had only previously been achieved by Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Ryan Moore.

Turning professional in April 2016, DeChambeau tied for fourth place in his first ever professional event (the PGA Tour's Heritage tournament at Harbour Town) and pocketed £259,000 for his efforts. Later that year he gained his full 2017 PGA Tour card with a win on the second-tier Web.com Tour. One PGA Tour win in 2017 (John Deere Classic) was followed by three huge wins in 2018, prior to taking his place on the USA Ryder Cup team ... just over two years after turning pro!
