Bryson DeChambeau found himself back in the mix contending for a major at the 2023 PGA Championship.
It seems hard to believe it was three years ago DeChambeau, now 29 years old, feasted on Winged Foot to claim the U.S. Open.
If you don't remember, it really was a clinic in ball-striking. Not only did he bully the course, but he also bullied the competition.
The winning margin? Six strokes. The victory was the culmination of a full-body transformation.

He also decided to drop the weight that made him the PGA's tour-de-force with the chief. "I lost 18lbs in 24 days," DeChambeau told the media before teeing it up at Oak Hill.
One thing that DeChambeau had to contend with was the typically boisterous New York crowd.
There were a few chirps here and there. About LIV, about the PGA Tour. You get the picture.
Still, DeChambeau wasn't too bothered with the comments from those outside the gallery ropes.

How would DeChambeau describe the dynamic now?
Elsewhere, DeChambeau has a new caddie on the bag - Greg Bodine - who previously worked for Tony Finau between 2014-2020.
DeChambeau also spoke positively of the impact of his new looper
