Bryson DeChambeau’s new putting stroke is insane

Never change, bro. Bryson DeChambeau, the Kangol-hat aficionado, who first stole our hearts with his weirdness at last year’s U.S. Amateur and then with his bid to become the first Amateur to win the Masters since Bobby Jones, has a unique approach to the game.

At risk of becoming a gimmick at this point, the slacklining-obsessed DeChambeau plays single-length irons (as though you hadn’t heard that 1,000 times) and employs a unique Golfing Machine crafted “zero shift” golf swing.

And when you see his new putting stroke in the clip from the PGA Tour below—the side-saddle setup he teased in an October interview with golf’s great brown-nosed toad, Tim Rosaforte—you’ll groan and whisper “F this guy.”

Buutttt…. Maybe you shouldn’t, and maybe WE should admire the SMU grad’s willingness to try anything to improve. You see, BAD really sucks at putting: He’s 166th in strokes gained: putting at the moment and was, in short, piss poor last year with the flatstick as well.

So rather than ripping Bryson, we’ll wait to see how the new stroke works.

@brysondechambeau is trying out the side-saddle putting stroke this week.
