Meet Bryson DeChambeau
Bryson was born September 16, 1993, in Modesto, CA. From a young age, he found his love of golf and, after graduating with a degree in Physics from Southern Methodist University, decided to make it his lifelong profession. Bryson began by winning the California State Junior Championship in 2010 and, after great amateur success, turned pro in 2016.
Since joining the PGA Tour, the physics major has earned the nickname “The Scientist” from his fellow pros, due to his exciting and unconventional approach to his game. Much like Einstein and Washington – innovators celebrated for how they stood out and capitalized on their creativity – DeChambeau uses wedges and irons of equal length (37.5 inches, the average length of his favorite 7-iron), precise force, and pinpoint distance measurements in his play.
