Who is Bryson DeChambeau?

He’s a big-hitting American, but who is Bryson DeChambeau? Check out our player profile on the LIV Golf star here…


Bryson DeChambeau is a golf star is known as ‘The Scientist’ for his meticulous approach to the game. He crunches the numbers more than most, and plays with clubs that are specifically designed for him, with thicker grips and irons that are all the same length.

In 2015, whilst at Southern Methodist University (SMU), he became just the fifth player in history to win both the NCAA Individual Championship and the US Amateur Championship in the same year, joining Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Ryan Moore in doing so.

His first professional victory was one that earned him his PGA Tour card. Having dropped back to the Web.com Tour finals, he was victorious at the DAP Championship, the season-ending event, to secure his status on the PGA Tour for 2017. He would then go on to win the John Deere Classic that year, his first on the Tour, and a sign of things to come for the American.

DeChambeau has gone on to win eight times on the PGA Tour, including a dominant performance at the 2020 US Open, for his only major title to date. He was the only player to finish under par at Winged Foot, winning with a score of 6-under, despite only hitting 23 fairways all week.

The American is now a member of the LIV Golf tour, having been one of the original group to move to the rival league in 2022. He is the captain of Crushers GC, playing alongside Paul Casey, Charles Howell III and Anirban Lahiri. He won twice on the tour in 2023, with victories at the Greenbrier and in Chicago. The first of those saw DeChambeau shoot a 58 in the final round, the lowest round in the tour’s fledgling history. A year later, DeChambeau won the US Open for a second time, taking victory by a single shot at Pinehurst No.2 to win his second major title.

The Golfing Scientist

All of his irons and wedges are 37.5 inches long, the same length as a 7-iron. They also have the same lie angle and the same bounce. This is to help him with his unique one-plane swing.

The Bulking Up Phase

Just prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, DeChambeau went through a huge change with his body, bulking up to add power and distance. It worked, with the American winning the US Open, but it led to injuries and mood swings. He eventually ditched the plan in late 2022, reverting back to a more normal diet.

NCAA Division 1, US Amateur & US Open Treble

DeChambeau has one of the more unique trebles in the game of golf. He won the NCAA Division 1 title with SMU, the US Amateur Championship and the US Open. Only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have also won all three.

LIV Golf’s Big Money Signing

Bryson was one of the original group of players to move across to the LIV Golf tour in 2022. He was the tour’s big-money signing, with an offer of more than $125 million luring DeChambeau to switch to the Saudi-backed league.

History Making 58

DeChambeau made history at the LIV Golf Greenbrier in 2023. Not only did he win the event, but he shot a final round 58, the first sub-60 round in LIV Golf history. The American also equalled the lowest round in elite men’s tournament golf history with that effort.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
