Golf fans react as Bryson DeChambeau reveals drive data showing 403-yard CARRY

Bryson DeChambeau has caused a stir on social media after revealing shot data that showed a drive carrying 403-yards, which he reached without the use of his new 48-inch driver that we are likely to see at the Masters.

Just when you thought we'd run out of things to say about DeChambeau's mission for speed and distance, the reigning US Open champion gets everyone talking again.

DeChambeau made it clear after his win at Winged Foot that he was determined to get even bigger, even faster and even longer in his quest to dominate every golf course he stumbles upon.

There's no question that DeChambeau's new size is helping him on the golf course, despite thousands of people saying it wouldn't work and the World No.6 wants to get even bigger before he tees it up at Augusta in November.



“I think I can get to 245 (pounds),” DeChambeau said. “It’s going to be a lot of working out. I don’t think it’s possible – it may be, I don’t know. It’s just I’ve gained so much so quickly in a year.

"They always say, when you work out, you gain your 30 pounds or whatever it is, and then after that, each year, you half it. So you can go 15. If you keep working out every day, you keep halving it. And then eventually there comes a point where you can’t gain much more. But I still feel like I can get up there if you work hard enough.”

DeChambeau also revealed that he has been getting excellent results with a 48-inch driver - the longest length allowed by the USGA - and we are likely to see him use it at the Masters.

As DeChambeau prepares for the final major of the year, he decided to share his longest drive to date on his Instagram story, where he carried the ball over 400-yards for the first time ever and without the use of his extra-long driver.

Of course this caused a huge reaction once it started doing the rounds on social media, with most comments taking the negative route and hitting out at DeChambeau, whilst some applauded him for his transformation and success.
