DeChambeau ‘wrecked’ hands in long driving | Ralph Lauren

Bryson DeChambeau has revealed that his hands are “wrecked” with calluses as he prepares for the Ryder Cup while also being in intense training for the Professional Long Drivers Association World Championship.

DeChambeau, who turns 28 on Thursday, admitted the wear and tear after a pair of 90-plus minute speed training sessions in North Carolina for the long driving contest.

“My hands are wrecked from it,” DeChambeau said in an interview with “People don’t realise how difficult long drive really is.

“In golf, it’s the one thing where you can judge your accomplishments by a number. Not necessarily by going out and playing golf, because you can catch a sprinkler head or catch a bad break or bad wind.

“On FlightScope, you can see the ball speed number, and when you obtain a ball speed number, it’s so different and unique. It’s like a shot-putter shot-putting a new record number. You’re trying to find that full potential to break through.”

While the calluses aren’t a happy reward for his efforts, DeChambeau believes they are a necessary byproduct as he prepares for both events.

“I do it every week,” he said. “Is it daunting? Hell yeah.

“At first, when I was trying to do it last year, it was very scary. But now that I’ve been through it and experienced the worst pains from it, and the most relaxed state of it where I’m not doing any speed training, I know how to kind of balance it for the most part. Why not go hard at life and do both?”

The biennial Ryder Cup, played for by the best men golfers in the US against Europe’s finest, will be held from September 24-26 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, with the world long driving championships in Mesquite, Nevada, on September 28.
