DeChambeau says his power comes from protein shakes

  DeChambeau says his power comes from protein shakes Bryson DeChambeau responded to curiosity about his bulked-up body and driving length since the US tour returned by saying the explanation was protein shakes, lots of them. When the US Tour returned DeChambeau made an immediate impression booming drives more than 350 yards (320 metres) and said he had continued his weight gain programme while the sport was in shut down by the coronavirus. "I've put on about 20 pounds (9kg) and about 45 pounds in the last nine months," said the 26-year-old after finishing third at the Charles Schwab Challenge."My ultimate goal is to get as strong as I can, applying some force and speed to the swing to see what it can handle.

Koepka , like several other professionals nowadays, has no equipment contract so has the freedom to use whatever clubs he chooses. As time went on the Nike clubs in his bag started to get replaced by other brands offerings, but for a long time the one that remained Watch the PGA Tour with NowTV.

When Koepka spits on the course, it’s purposeful. That is, it has big-league style. When he tosses his iron on his bag while his caddie chases after a divot, it brings to mind Barry Bonds dropping his bat after yet another walk. More than a few golfers this week have called Bethpage Black a “big ballyard.”

The PGA Tour tends to be a very safe place where the Tour goes out of its way to make sure the players are mostly shown in a good light, that the broadcasts are full of boring segments that show how great the players are and how grateful the CEOs of each tournament sponsor are just to be a part of things.

But right now the Tour has been given a gift from the marketing gods and it would be simply idiotic not to play it up.

I’m talking, of course, about a long-simmering feud between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau that continues to roll on and is easily the most fun/interesting thing to hit the Tour since Tiger Woods started dominating the game so many years ago.

Winner's Bag: Bryson DeChambeau, 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic

  Winner's Bag: Bryson DeChambeau, 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic The equipment Bryson DeChambeau used to win the PGA Tour's Rocket Mortgage Classic: DRIVER: Cobra King Speedzone (5.5 degrees), with LAGP BAD prototype 60X shaft FAIRWAY WOODS: Cobra K ing LTD (14.5 degrees), King Speedzone Tour (17.

Brooks Koepka , Bryson DeChambeau explain impromptu discussion over slow-play controversy. DeChambeau even admitted what most golf fans already knew: “I own up to the fact that I am slow on the greens Fox’s golf coverage wasn’t perfect, but the network should be praised for taking chances.

See how the drama unfolded in the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, where Brooks Koepka became the first player since 1989 to successfully

If you don’t know what I’m talking about it started last year when  DeChambeau heard about Koepka complaining about his slow play. DeChambeau took matters into his own hands and went up to Koepka’s caddie on the practice green before a round and told the caddie to tell his boss to come voice those complaints to his face.

I mean, that was just tremendous stuff.

Then it escalated last January when DeChambeau took a shot at Koepka’s physique, saying while streaming on Twitch: “I don’t know if (Koepka’s) genetics even make him look good, to be honest. In the Body Issue, He didn’t have any abs, to be honest. I got some abs.”

Oh, that was rich.

Koepka responded by basically saying scoreboard and showing off his four major championship trophies. (That’s four more major championship trophies than DeChambeau has.)

Bryson DeChambeau continues climb up Official World Golf Ranking

  Bryson DeChambeau continues climb up Official World Golf Ranking Denny Hamlin has trouble going into a corner at Indianapolis Motor Speedway while leading with under 10 laps to go.

It toured all over the world. It was admired by everybody. All theatres wanted to stage it. Tickets were immediately sold out. After reading only a few chapters Miranda was on the Internet, sure that someone had already made Hamilton’s story into a musical.

Rayshard Brooks fell asleep at a Wendy’s drive-through in Atlanta on Friday night, reportedly prompting staff to call the police. The arson attack on the Wendy’s also serves as a warning to anyone who still thinks of calling 911 when they’ve got a problem.

Since then, DeChambeau, who is the villain the game of golf needs right now, spent his time in quarantine packing on like 30 pounds of muscle and mass and has perfected a punishing swing that has him driving the ball in historic fashion. That all also has him making a mockery of many different golf courses with drives the past few weeks that make everything a pitch-and-putt course for him. Last Sunday he used that to get his sixth Tour win in four years.

Then on Tuesday Koepka came out of nowhere and tweeted a GIF of the fictional character Kenny Powers knocking over a cameraman that also had a mention of steroid allegations against Powers, which one can assume was picked on purpose by Koepka. DeChambeau did have an idiotic run-in with a CBS cameraman last week, so that GIF makes sense. The steroid dig is just some extra fuel to the fire, which is tremendous.

So now the PGA Tour has something incredibly awesome on its hands – two of the best players continuing to take shots at each other. If the Tour doesn’t jump on this and make it into more of a thing then I don’t know what the Tour is even doing. This is ratings gold. This is something that the game of golf has almost never had. This is something that is so sellable it’s not even funny.

Brooks Koepka seemed to take a shot at Bryson DeChambeau and golf fans loved it

  Brooks Koepka seemed to take a shot at Bryson DeChambeau and golf fans loved it Bryson DeChambeau has been the talk of the golf world since he decided to put on 30 pounds of muscle and mass during quarantine so he could hit drives a billion yards and make every course he plays feel like a pitch and putt. All of that hard work and protein shakes…All of that hard work and protein shakes paid off last weekend when he won the Rocket Mortgage Classic while shattering Tiger Woods’ long-standing driving record.

The OAP gangster caper is the latest example of a Hollywood staple that’s well past its sell-by date – manipulative, nauseatingly heartwarming films that invariably seem to star Michael Caine.

Today's students shouldn't miss out on the unique pleasure of getting lost in a physical book. Research shows that the brain functions differently when (D)_, and different formats complement different learning styles.

So where should the Tour start? Pair the two players up next week when they’re both in the field at The Memorial Tournament. That is easy money and is what all of Golf Twitter wants right now.

This isn’t the time to hide from controversy and juicy storylines. This isn’t the time to play up some bland players not named Koepka or DeChambeau. This the time to push all of the chips into the middle of the table and sit back and watch how it all unfolds.

A bulked-up, protein-shake guzzling DeChambeau alone is a gift to the Tour as he has become must-see TV since golf returned.

Now Koepka is lobbing in shots from out of nowhere?

How. Darn. Awesome.

Come on, PGA Tour. Forget about the boring ways you usually go about things and let’s have some fun.

Let’s get loose.

Let’s get Brooks vs. Bryson whenever we get the chance.

Tuesday’s biggest winner: WNBA players who want Kelly Loeffler out.

US Senator Kelly Loeffler seems to be someone who is terrible at her job and someone who is bad for our nation. She’s also terrible for the WNBA. You see, Loeffler is a co-owner of the Atlanta Dream and on Tuesday she came out and said she doesn’t support the Black Lives Matter movement and doesn’t support the league’s plans to support the movement. Just terrible, terrible leadership by a person who sold off millions of dollars in stocks upon hearing about the coronavirus while telling her supporters they had nothing to worry about. WNBA players spoke up in big numbers on Tuesday and they all said the same thing – they want Loeffler, who appears to be an awful person, out of the league. Hopefully that happens, because Loeffler doesn’t seem to be a great person.
