Bryson DeChambeau has packed on the pounds in recent months and the hard work has seriously paid off, but the American is keen for everyone to understand that his new bulk is a "long-term investment" that he believes will help him win major championships.

The 26-year-old has piled on over three stone in just three months, most of which is muscle, to help him gain more speed and distance off the tee, something that has proved extremely successful so far.

DeChambeau may not have tasted victory since he won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic early last year, but he is one of the most in-form golfers on the PGA Tour right now.

With finishes of T3, T8 and T6 in the last three tournaments since the PGA Tour returned after its 91 day absence, DeChambeau has showed he can control his new-found speed and use it to his advantage.

DeChambeau has added some serious distance off the tee and currently averages 320.1 yards, seeing him sit 2nd in the PGA Tour Driving Distance Statistics, behind Cameron Champ who averages 320.8.

Speaking to the media ahead of this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, DeChambeau was clearly in high spirits in regards to his recent performances, but admits the main goal is to use his new speed and distance to help him win majors.

"I've played some incredible golf," he said at his pre-tournament press conference. "I think over the long run, I'm looking at this as a long-term investment, this driving stuff.

"It's all great, hitting it far, pretty straight, it's awesome, but for me it's more of a long-term investment. I want this to work really, really well for majors ... especially majors.

"There's East Lake, and the WGCs, I really want to perform at those events. These are great preparation tournaments, I love them, I want to win them.

"Every tournament I come to I want to win, but, you know, again, the most important things for me are those majors."
