Single length-ers unite! Bryson does it...

Bryson puts one in the win column for single-length iron truthers!

 

Way to go BMan...

 

People can say what they want, but DeChambeau has arrived on his terms. And he's not going anywhere for a long time. Maybe his methods are unorthodox, but they produce results. That's all that matters.

Been following him since his awesome performance at The Masters. Good kid, a lot of haters. But like you said he isn't going anywhere for a while, and getting a major OEM to bite off on "his" playing style.... That is something.

After missing 8 cuts in a row he made three in a row with a win. Maybe he's figured something out.

So happy to see him win. I still don't get all of the hate for him and Single length irons, how does what someone else plays matter? He found what works for him. Hell, Hogan used nearly the same swing, positioned the ball in the the middle of his stance for everything and just adjusted the distance away from it.

Hooray, finally a single plane winner on the PGA Tour.  I'm just waiting for the golf instructors and analysts to try to explain how Bryson's SPS is a variation of a conventional swing.  I'm sure they will butcher it.  I know Martin Hall tried to do it a couple of years ago and got it wrong.

So glad to see this. Seems like a very nice young man, and I for one am a big fan of the One Length irons.   I actually posted to some moron on Facebook this morning who was saying if the one length are so good why hasn't Bryson done anything.   I said getting your first tour win within a year of turning professional seems pretty good to me, considering how many PGA pros go their entire careers without winning one.

So, is it the one-length irons, single plane swing, or a combination of both?

Good question! I wish I had access to a demo set of the one-length irons to play a couple of rounds with, I've hit them in the store but it's hard to really tell how well they would work.

I got rid of my single length irons but super glad to see Bryson do well. There is some vehement hate thrown his way that I just don't understand. It's not like he said people have to do what he does. He just does his own thing and is doing it very well. 30 on the back nine to win your first tourney is beyond impressive.

Yep. Very interesting to see his swing hold up as it did.

As soon as he won the first thing that went through my mind was, Cobra scores!

Good for Bryson and he did golf his darn ball to get it done. We will hear about Bobby Jones winning with single lengths in the weeks to come as the Cobra adverts roll out Im thinking.

Imo it's all the above plus a pretty good golfer. Bryson has skills, period. he was a really good junior player playing conventional clubs.

Don't matter how it looks if it gets in the hole. I've seen plenty of crazier swings and putting styles prove effective at the top level so not too surprised he pulled it off. Seems like a good fella too from what I've gathered, it's just easier for your typical armchair analyst to poke at an unorthodox player then a textbook one that's all. Kinda interested to see how he does at the open now that he's got the first win. I'm not picking him to win but he could put up a good showing.

Bryson - Furyk - Berger - Moore

 

Out of all of those I think Bryson looks the most in control of his swing.

 

Berger scares the heck out of me. I'm still, yes still trying to figure Furyk's out, and Moores... well I don't know.

First time I saw a video of Arnold Palmer swing a golf club I thought it was a mishit....  he was as "non" conventional as they come!... still trying to figure out that follow through.

 

and let's not forget about Moe... he didn't win on the PGA tour - he was a horrendous putter - but his lifetime fairways in regulation is around 90 percent.

 

...oh, and as far as Furyk goes, I think Feherty said it best - An octopus falling out of a tree...
