After watching a video clip of Bryson DeChambeau and his caddie Tim Tucker at Dubai Classic, I was wondering what the governing is going to ban to make it more difficult for DeChambeau to use science as he plays. After listening to their conversation, I think the PGA Tour should embrace his approach and run with it!
Listen to these two interact before their shot:
I mean, the details they are discussing is fascinating. Everyone zeros in on DeChambeau, but I was thinking about the caddie. Tucker must have some background in physics to be able to converse in the language of math. They must have taken the time to develop their own “scientific golf language” to ensure they were on the same page. This level of detail is not something that two people stumble upon. It must be working because DeChambeau is playing great!
I have a message for the PGA Tour – run with DeChambeau’s success. Embrace the science and analysis he displays and demonstrate that professional golfers are role models with respect to education as well as being athletic. What a great message to send the youth of today!
Unfortunately, I am not confident that the PGA Tour will be as open as others when supporting DeChambeau’s science. Likely, because they do not understand much of what he says, the governing bodies will ignore DeChambeau until he develops another process to shoot lower golf scores.
Do you like DeChambeau’s approach to golf?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
