Bobby’s Answer

Bryson DeChambeau birdied the second extra hole to win a three-way playoff over Ben An and Kyle Stanley and take the title at the Memorial Tournament on Sunday.  This is DeChambeau’s second PGA Tour victory following his breakthrough last summer at the John Deere. The victory moves DeChambeau to fourth in the FedExCup points race, 8th in Ryder Cup Points, 22nd in the world golf rankings (his highest ever in all three categories) and comes with a three-year PGA Tour exemption. 

I grew up with Bryson’s dad Jon and his longtime coach, Mike Schy playing junior golf in Northern California.  Bryson is a good friend of our family and comes to visit often when he is in the Naples area.  Recently he was in our studio where I had a chance to really watch his swing.

Here are some of my thoughts about Bryson’s swing. and I invite you to join me July 7-8th for my Signature golf school in beautiful Carmel, California!

  1. I enjoyed your analysis of Bryson’s swing. Would you say he is a disciple of the Moe Norman single plane approach?

    1. Claude,
      Clearly there are some similarities between Bryson’s swing and Mo Norman, but also a lot of differences. I wouldn’t call Bryson a disciple of Mo’s swing. Bryson’s has his own style.

  2. Great video. I learned the single plane swing 20 years ago following the Moe Norman process teachers. It really helped me be consistent. I am 71 now and unable to play anymore due to health situations but certainly think the single plane swing can help some folks be more consistent at impact and scoring over all.

    1. Jim,
      The most important aspect of the swing is what is happening at impact. Whether you are a single plane swinger or not, you can create great impact and be a great player. I think too many people are so “style based” in their thinking that they think a one plane swing is the answer. It’s not, better impact is!

  3. As a 75 year old with 65 years of golf experience, I’ve got all my irons (7 through wedges) and hybrids (3 through 6) @ a single length of 37″. I’ve done this for the past 7 years. It’s helped me stay long with my short clubs and consistent with my long clubs. We all do what we can to maintain as we age. Bryson plays with one length clubs, I believe, and he surely seems to be a very consistent striker of the ball. As always Bobby, thanks for your great videos and positive spirit.
