- There has never been much about DeChambeau’s equipment that would be considered ‘normal’ amongst his PGA Tour brethren, however, after his body transformation, his clubs have also undergone significant change. The 26-year-old has lowered the loft of his driver to 5.5˚ to deliver the best results at his extreme swing speed which helped him average 350 yards this week, while he now carries two 3-woods. The lower lofted model listed above plays as his ‘traditional’ first fairway wood, with the second fitted with a heavier shaft, two degrees more loft and played at a 5-wood length.
- Now a six-time PGA Tour winner, the Californian is among the rare top male players to use graphite shafts throughout his bag. DeChambeau’s LA Golf shafts are prototypes made for him and designed to play extremely stiff as the ‘Rebar’ names suggests. All of DeChambeau’s clubs are also fitted with Jumbo Max Tour grips that are extremely oversized to work with his unique swing.
- DeChambeau recently inserted Artisan wedges into his bag, the Texas company that occupies Nike Golf’s former residence and is led by Mike Taylor the sporting goods giant’s former lead club technician. Taylor’s post Nike clubs have developed a strong following on the PGA Tour, with Patrick Reed and Abraham Ancer among the other players using the boutique company’s equipment.
The former US Amateur champion, who led the field in Strokes Gained: Driving and Putting this week, continues to use an Armlock style putter, giving the method its second win in five starts since the PGA Tour’s return, the same number of victories for Bridgestone’s Tour B golf balls in the 2019/20 wraparound season.
QUOTE: “This is a little emotional for me because I did do something a little different, I changed my body, changed my mindset in the game and I was able to accomplish a win while playing a completely different style of golf.” – Bryson DeChambeau.
