Inside Bryson DeChambeau's New Driver

When Bryson DeChambeau shoots 61-58 to close out a tournament then we're all interested and, when he's doing it with a driver that not many of us are familiar with, then things get even more interesting.

The American was previously with Cobra for years, then he switched to a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver. Now he has a Krank Golf Formula Fire driver in play which is better known as a long-drive club - in total the brand has won over 20 World Long Drive Championships.

"It's a great driver. It's won a bunch of World Long Drive Championships and it's performed the best. It's probably performed the best I've ever had in the past five years in professional golf, ever since 2018 when I was striping it early in the year.

"I don't want to say too much. It's fantastic for anyone that's over 175mph ball speed. Ever since I put this driver into play, it's not been really my golf swing. It's just hit on the toe, hit on the heel, everything comes back down the middle of the fairway, and I'm like, all right, let's go, pick up the tee and let's go. The driver has been really nice. It's allowed me to have some time to myself after rounds instead of going and working my butt off all the time."

DeChambeau expanded that by having the right equipment in place, it's helped to transform his mental game, hence the exceptional scores that he's now churning out.

"I feel like I can go out there and just play golf rather than golf swing or what do I need to do here to save? But I also feel like my mental game is in a different place because of the equipment. I feel like I'm just a brute. I just, boom, right down the fairway, wedge it on the green, right down the fairway, wedge it on the green.

"It's just more of a determined, focused mentality that I have with this new equipment. It's really the equipment, to be honest. So it is different. That's what makes me feel like I'm back in 2015 when I was playing the US Amateur and shooting 6-under every time at Olympia Fields. That's kind of what I feel like right now."

As for the possibility of making a late run onto Zach Johnson's side in Rome, the American was hopeful that he might get a nod with Johnson having six picks this year.

"I played in a couple Ryder Cups and I would love to represent my country. There's no doubt about that. I feel like I'm in a good place to be able to do that. I feel like I'm a top-10 player for sure right now with the game that I'm playing, and if I do get picked, fantastic. If I don't, I'll still be watching on TV and rooting for Team USA because I respect and appreciate those players that are on the team representing our country more than a PGA Tour or LIV thing."
