Bryson DeChambeau returns to site of MONSTROUS DRIVE at Bayhill

Bryson DeChambeau won the Arnold Palmer Invitational back in March. This was a key point in his career as it was further evidence of his pursuit of power and distance.

We saw his 'bomb and gauge' tactics at Winged Foot in September 2020. These tactics led to a dominant display to win the US Open, his first major championship.

But there was one shot that we stood up and took notice of at Bay Hill. In the third round, the World No. 7 arrived on the 6th tee box and produced something special. 

He hit a 370-yard drive over a huge area of intimidating water which left him only 70 yards left into this par-5 hole. Yes, he had 70 yards left into a par-5.

This is one of many birdies that he made that week in Florida. And he celebrated the drive by lifting his arms in the air and pointing to the sky.

In DeChambeau's Instagram story, it showed footage of the eight-time PGA Tour winner returning to Bay Hill and returning to the 6th hole.

DeChambeau's interest in hitting long drives has only increased since March. He hit a drive of over 400 yards at the Ryder Cup and he competed at the Professional Long Drivers Association World Championship in September.

In his story, he bombed another drive across the iconic, scenic hole. He didn't show us where it landed, however, there's no doubt it would've been similar to the shot he hit nine months ago.

The Arnold Palmer Invitational is one of the most prestigious non-major events of the season and the fans behind DeChambeau's drive on the 6th hole went wild when he made his arm gesture.

As you can see in the image above, all of the fans wanted to get their own footage of the drive and as DeChambeau shows, it is very hard to forget this moment on the PGA Tour.
