Mesquite (AP) – Golfer “Hulk” Bryson DeChambeau struck again – this time at the Pro Long Drive World Cup in Mesquite, Nevada, USA.
Just days after the enchanting Ryder Cup win with the US team, the 28-year-old competed against the professionals who could hit a golf ball to the furthest point. And with great success: Deschamps reached the quarter-finals on his first World Cup appearance. There he hit his ball 391 yards (356 metres). In the end, the 2020 US Open winner was less than six meters from the semi-finals.
“I was so excited to finish the quarter-finals. I wouldn’t have expected that in my first competition,” said Deschamps, whose character reminded him of the big-muscled green-comedy hero Hulk. This competition motivated him to keep working on his swing speed. “I will improve my strength and my body,” the main winner declared. Competition foreclosed on the PGA Tour.
Longdrive star Kyle Berkshire of the USA took the world title not far from Las Vegas with a distance of 422 yards (386 metres). Martin Bohrmayer of Munich took third place in the event. “Third place in the world – not the result I wanted to achieve, but only one solution: to get better,” Bormayer wrote on Instagram.
