- Bryson DeChambeau took on the world’s greatest hitters in Nevada
- He achieved a round 8 finish in the Drivers Association World Championship
- DeChambeau took part in the event fresh off the back of his Ryder Cup exploits
Bryson DeChambeau proved beyond a doubt this week that his great achievements are not just hot air, after beating some of the world’s best in the Long Drivers Association World Championships.
DeChambeau chose to enter the event after becoming arguably the tallest batter in professional golf, and went to the Nevada desert to test his skills against the world’s deadliest ball strikers.
Of course, fresh off the back of his Ryder Cup exploits, the American star drew huge crowds and returned attention by pumping up the crowd and encouraging a party-like atmosphere.

Whistles and applause shot through the air as DeChambeau unleashed a rather remarkable 406-meter megadrive to instantly slay his opponents on the field.
DeChambeau slammed through the ball onto the tee at a furious pace, immediately pushing his fellow competitors ahead of a glove group in his first set of the day, including Martin Borgmeier, Nick Vorbeck and Kyle Berkshire.
The PGA superstar would eventually lose if reigning world champion Berkshire kept his crown.

In his opening set, however, DeChambeau had outplayed the crowd’s hysteria by putting in a long drive for 406 yards, beating Berkshire and finishing second to Borgmeier (416 yards).
He would go on to make long drives of 406, 386, 403, 396 and 394 in his five sets, with his last shot worth a win in set five, propelling him to the next round.
DeChambeau reached the final eight participants by hammering balls at a blazing pace of 400 meters or more at the right moments – including one from the 406 meters in his first set Friday.
By staying consistent, DeChambeau found himself hitting the high 300s and getting much-needed points in the final day’s early round-robin format.
He finished eighth in that round to advance to the quarterfinals.
