Feats Of Strength
British Open 2023: Bryson DeChambeau drives 366-yard par 4 and makes eagle, is still a beast off the tee
Bryson DeChambeau turned heads late last year after shedding some 20 pounds in a month with a new diet. But if golf fans were worried about him losing his pop off the tee, well, don't be.
During Sunday's final round of the Open Championship, DeChambeau delivered his latest feat of strength. The 2020 U.S. Open champ and 2022 World Long Drive runner-up drove the 366-yard, par-4 fourth hole at Royal Liverpool. And what sets him apart from his long drive colleagues, of course, is his ability to convert the ensuing eagle putt from 27 feet. Have a look:
Boom. Bang. We're not going to act like we're not impressed, because we are certainly impressed. As the caption says, that's the first eagle of the week on that hole—and the tournament is almost over.
Well done, Bryson. Although, unfortunately, there haven't been too many similar highlights for the long-hitting LIV star this week. DeChambeau shot a Sunday 73 to finish seven over for the event and near the bottom of the leaderboard among those making the cut.
But again, don't worry. If anyone can ever figure out the proper diet to make fewer bogeys, it's this guy.
