Golf Australia Express : GA Express 211
I T’S A turn of events that will have the purists freaking out. But that’s exactly how Bryson DeChambeau would want it. DeChambeau’s maiden professional victory at the web.com Tour Finals’ DAP Championship guarantees him a PGA Tour card for next season, just months after the 22-year-old made the decision to turn professional. That career progression is a path well travelled among aspiring elite golfers: have a taste of the PGA Tour, star on the web.com, then take your place amongst the big boys. But DeChambeau is far from your prototypical aspiring elite golfer. In a sport full of formulaic interview responses, robotic swings and a generally accepted way of doing things, DeChambeau doesn’t just stand apart. He’s way over there on the other side of the room, plotting how he might change the game forever, while the rest of us are drooling over the latest cosmetic changes to our preferred brand of driver. But he thinks it’s you, not him, that’s a little kooky for not being open to trying something new in order to gain a competitive edge – whether that be taking a different mental approach to the game or, you know, being one of the only players on the planet who is crazy enough – or genius enough – to embrace the use of irons with shafts of identical lengths.
