Correspondent Hoon Kwon = Bryson Dishambeau (USA, 30), who received a lot of attention for his super-strength long hit, announced that he would no longer pursue long hits.
On the 2nd (Korean time), DeChambo said in an introduction to his current status posted on the LIV Golf website that he is no longer trying to increase his distance.
When he set foot on the PGA Tour, DeChambeau, who had a modest physique and an ordinary distance, drew attention by transforming into a powerful long hitter by increasing his size and increasing his swing speed to an extreme.
In 2021, he became the long drive king with an average drive shot distance of 323.7 yards.
His desire for long hitting was hotter than any other player, as he participated in the long hitting competition for two consecutive years in which players specializing in long hitting competed.
However, his performance declined after a wrist injury last year, and even after leaving the PGA Tour and moving to LIV golf, he did not show much performance.
He introduced DeChambo that on this day, he also reduced his size, which he had grown to the fullest. Over the past summer, he has also lost nearly 10 kg of weight.
“I realized the limits of my body and equipment,” he said.
“There is a limit to increasing swing speed with engineering technology,” said DeChambeau. , That is still impossible,” he explained the reason for giving up long hits.
He underwent surgery to fracture his left wrist in April last year. The injury was caused by training too hard to increase his swing speed.
DeChambeau suffered a lot last year besides a broken wrist.
He lost a lot of weight due to digestive issues, and was saddened by the passing of his father, who had battled diabetes for a long time.
He also had the worst performance. It was a year in which he had not won a single championship since his debut.
DeChambeau, who had risen to 4th in the world rankings at one time and now fell to 96th, showed confidence that he will finish reorganization this year and rise to the top again.
DeChambeau revealed that he underwent surgery to remove a retention cyst in his maxillary sinus in December of last year. 스포츠토토
DeChambeau, who had trouble breathing through his nose because of a maxillary sinus retention cyst, often complained of dizziness and lightheadedness. He has had this disease since April 2020.
DeChambeau, who chose the surgery, said, “It was the biggest decision in my life. Now I am full of energy. My thoughts are clearer,” he said.
“I have aspirations to be as dominant as I was in 2018 (where I won four championships),” he said. It’s a very scary thing for the players.”
DeChambeau will participate in the Asian Professional Golf Tour PIF Saudi International, which will be held for four days from the 2nd.
