Bryson DeChambeau's Big Boy Diet Keeps Getting Results

When Bryson DeChambeau is mashing 423-yard drives at The Memorial, he's leaving 80-year-old former masher Jack Nicklaus no choice but to figure out how to change Muirfield Village to deal with guys who are eating BIG boy breakfasts and trying to win long-drive contests on the PGA. I've blogged about this before, but I'll address it again in case you missed it in June.

Bryson DeChambeau's breakfast plan to bulk up is insane and sounds like an incredible amount of work: eggs on eggs and bacon and protein shakes; more protein and more protein; steak; carbs; more shakes. It makes me want to eat a salad and use a Balsalmic.

Fellow masher Dustin Johnson was asked this week if he has any plans to bulk up to keep with the Bad Boy of the Breakfast Buffet.

Here's how driving distance is looking these days. DeChambeau leads at 323 while guys like Rory (313 yds), Bubba (313) and Matthew Wolff (312.6) aren't much further back from the mad scientist and they don't have to crush steaks like they're chicken nuggets. I'm not some golf expert, but results on the course matter and DeChambeau hasn't finished out of the top 10 since the Waste Management and has shot up to No. 7 in the world after finishing 2019 at No. 14. The guy thinks he's figured out how to outsmart the PGA and it starts with a big breakfast and lots of protein shakes.

As I finish this post, Bryson is tied for 30th (E) through his first Friday 9 at the Memorial.
