One of the intriguing stories in golf lately is the emergence of part time physicist/artist/golfer Bryson DeChambeau. He who plays all his irons at the same length. He who wears the “Hogan” cap. He who talks of the golf swing in such lingo that he would confuse Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory. Oh, and he who was low am at The Masters (and in the mix through three rounds) and finished T4 at The RBC Heritage. This kid is… Continue Reading
