Bryson DeChambeau: "I am an artist. I love creating things."

April 12, 2016

The science surrounding Bryson DeChambeau's golf game has drawn a lot of attention, from his same-length irons to his perfectly one-planed swing. But a key part to his successful formula is something that can't be measured in any lab: confidence.

In fact, some people might label DeChambeau's level of belief in himself as cockiness (He allegedly told Jim Nantz he was going to win the Masters as an amateur). And surely, those people will love what the former physics major at SMU had to say on Tuesday. Ahead of his pro debut on Thursday at the RBC Heritage, DeChambeau was asked for his response to people who say he plays too scientifically. "I am an artist," he said. "I love creating things." OK then.

DeChambeau could have dropped the mic and ended his presser there, but he kept talking about science vs. art, practice vs. feel, and. . . proprioception? Regardless of how you feel about the young man, he's a fascinating character and a captivating speaker. You can watch his full answer here:
