Bryson DeChambeau took home the Rocket Mortgage Classic championship this weekend on the PGA Tour. He shot -23 for the tournament. Matthew Wolff was second at -20, and Kevin Kisner was third at -18.
It was Dechambeau’s sixth career PGA Tour victory and his first of 2020.
Bryson DeChambeau re-tooling his game
DeChambeau has always had a different style of play since he arrived on the PGA Tour. He custom made all of his irons to be the same length for swing purposes.
Usually, the longer iron require a different swing when compared to the shorter irons. However, for DeChambeau, it’s the same swing each time no matter what iron he uses.
Even with this different style of play, DeChambeau wasn’t getting the result he wanted, so he decided to re-shape his game again.
DeChambeau now playing the long game
DeChambeau said he has been working on his body for a long time in order to hit the ball farther. His hard work paid off this past weekend when he averaged the most yards per drive with his longest drive being 377 yards.
DeChambeau’s long drives played a huge role in him winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
