The Masters: Bryson DeChambeau unleashes 200mph drive in Augusta warm-up


Bryson DeChambeau is beginning to make a mockery of golf.

The American's immense power game is beginning to outstrip any skill based approach his opponents can produce as he continues  to blow everyone out of the water.

He recently landed his first major title with a comprehensive win in the US Open at Winged Foot, taking the mickey out of one of the most difficult courses in the States.

No one could get near him as it looked like DeChambeau was playing on a completely different course to the rest of the field at times.

He would go on to win by no less than six shots, finishing as the only player in the field with an underpar score.

The American has divided a lot of opinion since his emergence, with many feeling that his incredible power game could lead to more adopting his approach and all the skill being drained out of the sport.

However, it has to be said that the American relies heavily on skill and dexterity as well, with his regularly sluggish rate of play - due to the amount of time he spends agonising over his next shot - really getting under the skin of the proverbial purist.

In the end though, DeChambeau isn't breaking any rules and has to be classified as one of the most exciting talents to make his mark in the game for a very long time.

Ahead of the first autumnal Masters ever, DeChambeau sent an ominous warning to the field as he warmed up with some stonking-great drives just days out from tee-off.

DeChambeau's long game off the tee is like something out of a fantasy, as he regularly produces jaw-dropping distances with his brutal driving power.

However, while the distances are impressive enough, the ball speed that the American generates is simply out of this world.

In a video posted to social media, DeChambeau was shown absolutely nailing it in warm up, generating speeds of up to 200mph off the club.


It is difficult to see anyone stopping DeChambeau this week but Augusta is a different beast entirely.

Georgia's famous caldron won't simply roll over and allow itself to be trampled under the hefty foot of DeChambeau.

It could prove to be a bit more of a challenge than many expect for the American star.
