That's a lot of protein. (What did you expect?)

Bryson DeChambeau is in fine form on the PGA Tour. After opening the 2020 season with a missed cut, the Californian’s record reads T13-T4-15-T52-T5-2-4-T3-T8-T6. That’s six top 10s in seven events played this year since returning from Australia with a Presidents Cup win under his belt.

But that’s not the only reason DeChambeau is turning heads. The 26-year-old has beefed up somewhat in recent months. What do you mean you hadn’t noticed?

So what exactly is he eating on a daily basis?

He was asked this very question in his press conference ahead of the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club.

“Well, he said, “I’ll start off by saying I don’t necessarily eat anything or everything I want.

“I would say that in the mornings, I usually have four eggs, five pieces of bacon, some toast and two protein shakes.

“Throughout the course of the day, I’ll have a GoMacro [protein] bar here and there, I’ll have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I’ll have at least two protein drinks on the golf course, at every six holes, and then after the round I’ll have one.

“After that, I’m snacking when I’m practising, [then I’ll] go back to the hotel, eat a dinner [of] steak, potatoes, and I’ll have two protein shakes with it there as well.

“So I’m consuming, I’d say, around six to seven of those Orgain protein shakes a day now where I used to be two or three.”

For you calorie counters out there, that’s in the region of 3,500.

But before you all start firing up the grill and investing in those huge tubs of protein powder, make sure you read the advice of our resident sports nutritionist first…
