Bryson DeChambeau GEARS UP for 215mph ball speed attempt at Long Drive event

Bryson DeChambeau appears to be gearing up to try and get a ball speed of 215mph. 

In a video posted on his YouTube channel, DeChambeau gave fans an inside look at his training as he prepares for the Professional Long Driver's Association World Championship. 

He will compete in that event on September 27 in Mesquite, Nevada. 

He has consistently said in interviews that he sees long drive as an opportunity to keep growing and promoting the game of golf. 

 

 

"I want to show the world how incredibly talented and hard-working these athletes are," DeChambeau said on Instagram.

"I've been working hard to get my game up to their speeds so I have a chance but will still continue to play my best golf with my regular day job."

DeChambeau, 27, now looks to be training intensely after he finished seventh overall in the FedExCup standings. 

In the 20-minute video, 'The Scientist' reaches a speed of 212.5mph in ball speed training after attempting to get to 215 187 times. 

He was consistently carrying the ball 375 yards in the simulations. 

DeChambeau had another interesting week at the Tour Championship at East Lake. 

 

 

Yet again, it was not without controversy. 

He chose to drive the ball down the 10th fairway from the 18th tee box and lost his ball, despite dozens of spectators trying to find it. 

It was determined a fan picked up his ball and DeChambeau was given a free drop and hit the green in two before draining his birdie putt.
