Beijing time on October 10th, this week's Holy Land Brotherhood Children's Hospital Open is the last race that Bryson De Chambeau will participate in before the Masters.
But in the next month, he will not throw off his arms to rest.
De Chambord told reporters in Las Vegas that he planned to take a rest next month to train the 48-inch driver, hoping to put it into use in Augusta. The 48-foot driver is the longest length allowed by the rules of golf, and most of the time it only appears in the long play. The shaft currently used by De Chambord is 45 inches and a half long.
De Chambord在拉斯维加斯对记者说，他计划下个月休息一下，训练这名48英寸驾驶员，希望将其在奥古斯塔（Augusta）中使用。 48英尺长的发球杆是高尔夫球规则所允许的最长长度，并且在大多数情况下，它仅出现在长距离比赛中。 De Chambord当前使用的轴长45英寸半。
Although he said he is still adjusting the shaft and head speed of the 48-inch driver, the club should have similar launch angles and spin characteristics. "It's like a missile flying out of the face," he said, "that's pretty fast."
How far can the small ball be hit?
De Chambord did not say.
"I won't disclose it now," he said, "I don't want to provoke people."
De Chambord led the Tour in driving distance last season, averaging 322.1 yards. Even if he didn't disclose the details, he said that the 48-inch driver made "shocking, much farther than I am now."
"If I adjust and correct the missed ball," he added, "I feel that I can easily use it in Augusta."
Once again, De Chambeau avoided talking about his Masters strategy. He said that he would first need to debug there in the practice round. But he also said: "If the serve is more than 320 yards, I feel that the fairway there is open and there are many opportunities for me." Then he mentioned the second nine-hole par-5: hole 13 and hole 15. , And should have a greater advantage in the 17th and 18th holes.
In order to spend time debugging, De Chambeau will give up next week’s CJ Cup in Las Vegas and the ZOZO Championship in Los Angeles two weeks later, although the prize money of those two events is much higher and there will be no cash line. .
Anyway, this means that the new U.S. Open champion has a four-week break to prepare for the final Grand Slam of the year. He said that he will train in Dallas, fitness and training speed, hoping to make his ball speed reach an average of 200 mph.
"That is my goal," he said.
