Bryson Dechambeau

Bryson DeChambeau was born in Modesto on September 16, 1993.

As an amateur he won the NCAA Division I Championship and the U.S. Amateurs in 2015; with the victory of the U.S. Open in 2020 he became the third golfer in history to obtain these three titles after Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.

He has been nicknamed The Scientist for his analytical game play. His sticks are specially designed for his characteristics: the grips are narrower than usual and all irons are the same length. In 2020 he became the player capable of reaching the longest driving distances on the PGA Tour.

In the 2019 season, he obtained his first title on the European Tour by winning the Omega Dubai Desert Classic by seven strokes. He participates in the first Presidents Cup, where the United States wins. As of later this year and during the COVID-19 pandemic, DeChambeau bulks up by gaining about 40 pounds, consequently becoming the golfer with the longest tee shot.

In July 2020 he returned to win a tournament, the Rocket Mortgage Classic, thanks to a final round seven strokes under par. He comes fourth at the PGA Championship, while in September he triumphs in the first Major, the U.S. Open, in which he is the only player to remain under par. Thus he returns to occupy the fifth position in the ranking, to date his best result.
