Bryson DeChambeau releases his own NFT trading cards

Bryson DeChambeau took to social media to announce that he has become the first professional golfer in the world to release his own limited edition NFT trading cards which are currently at auction and will go to the highest bidder.

There are five different versions of DeChambeau's cards, which highlight some of his most celebrated moments on the golf course, which also includes a special Distance NFT, where only one will be available, with a minimum bid and reserve price of $45,687.78.

The highest bidder of the Distance NFT will not only win the digital card, but will also get to meet DeChambeau at a future tournament, as well as receive a custom set of Cobra golf clubs, $1,000 Bose credit, an autographed U.S Open flag and six dozen Bridgestone golf balls.

WATCH DECHAMBEAU REVEAL THE NEWS BELOW:

"Bryson DeChambeau is excited to be the FIRST professional golfer to release his own OFFICIAL limited edition set of NFTs. This set of NFTs celebrates the golf superstar's career up to this point with five limited edition trading cards. Each card is a digitally unique piece of memorabilia with Bryson's digital signature and logo," read the announcement on OpenSea, where you can find details on the current auctions for DeChambeau's NFT cards.

But what on earth is an NFT? I hear you ask. Take a look below, where the BBC explains exactly what an NFT is and how it works.

"NFT stands for non-fungible token. In economics, a fungible asset is something with units that can be readily interchanged - like money.

"NFTs are "one-of-a-kind" assets in the digital world that can be bought and sold like any other piece of property, but they have no tangible form of their own.

"The digital tokens can be thought of as certificates of ownership for virtual or physical assets."
