Bryson DeChambeau is a young American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. He has already climbed up among the top players in the world of golf having been only the fifth player ever in the world of golf to win both the NCAA Division I championship and the U.S. Amateur in the same year.
DeChambeau was born on September 16, 1993, in Modesto, California. He studied at Clovis East High School. He was a unique child since his childhood days with some referring to him as a genius.
By the time he was 6, he was already in tune with algebra. Moreover, in high school, he rewrote his physics textbook because he wanted to save $200 for his parents who had already invested so much for him in golf. Even at that young age, it was already paying off with him being the winner at the California State Junior Championship in 2010. He then studied at Southern Methodist University with a scholarship where he graduated with a degree in physics.

In 2015, DeChambeau made his PGA Tour debut where he finished at the 45th position. His debut would come at the RBC Heritage where he would tie for 4th and end up earning a quarter of a million dollars.
He quickly progressed from here once he got some momentum in his way. He went on to have his first professional win at the DAP Championship that would also earn him a PGA Tour Card in 2017. That same year, President Donald J. Trump even gave him new golf gear as a sign of appreciation and encouragement. 2018 was by far the most successful one for DeChambeau winning several accolades.
Many have called him the mad golf scientist for his own inventions of different techniques. As we are aware now, he has a good background in physics which he has utilized in the golf course as well.
All of DeChambeau’s irons and wedges are cut to exactly the same length: 37.5 inches. These clubs are pretty unusual and he keeps the club on the same plane throughout his swing and does not turn his wrists during his swing. But this unique approach has been successful which has brought a lot of curiosity into his work.
