More about Bryson and his Career so far:

Amateur career

Born in Modesto, California to John Howard Aldrich DeChambeau and Janet Louise Druffel, DeChambeau moved to Clovis, northeast of Fresno, at age seven. He attended Clovis East High School and won the California State Junior Championship at age 16 in 2010. DeChambeau graduated in 2012 and accepted a scholarship to Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, majoring in physics.

In June 2015, he became the first SMU Mustang to win the NCAA individual championship, recording a score of 280 (−8) to win by one stroke. In August, he won the U.S. Amateur title, defeating Derek Bard 7 & 6 in the 36-hole final. He became the fifth to win both the NCAA and U.S. Amateur titles in the same year, joining Jack Nicklaus (1961), Phil Mickelson (1990), Tiger Woods (1996), and Ryan Moore (2004).

DeChambeau made his PGA Tour debut as an amateur in June 2015 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic near Memphis, Tennessee, and finished in 45th place. He played in his first major championship at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, but missed the cut by four strokes. DeChambeau was unable to defend his NCAA title in 2016 after the SMU athletic department was handed a postseason ban by the NCAA. He decided to forgo his senior season to play in a number of events before turning professional. At the 2015 Australian Masters in November, Dechambeau was runner-up with John Senden and Andrew Evans, two shots behind the winner Peter Senior. He was the low amateur at the Masters in 2016 and tied for 21st place.

Professional career

Immediately after the Masters in mid-April 2016, DeChambeau turned professional and signed a long-term agreement with Cobra-Puma Golf. He made his pro debut days later at the RBC Heritage in South Carolina and tied for fourth, earning over $259,000. The decision to turn professional meant the forfeiture of his exemptions to the U.S. Open at Oakmont and Open Championship at Royal Troon; he qualified his way into the U.S. Open, tied for fifteenth place for over $152,000, and improved his world ranking to 148.

Despite the strong start, DeChambeau did not initially earn enough to qualify for a PGA Tour card, but had enough to earn entry into the Web.com Tour Finals. His first professional win was the DAP Championship which also earned him a PGA Tour Card for the 2017 PGA Tour.

On July 16, 2017, he earned his first PGA Tour victory by winning the John Deere Classic.

Hank Haney views video, says Tiger Woods’ swing one ‘he could win with’

Tiger Woods does not give up much regarding progress he’s making in his rehabilitation from back surgery. He Tweets a pitch here, an iron shot there, and, yesterday, a single driver swing that he dubbed, “Making Progress.”

A full swing with a driver unequivocally represents progress, but can more be read into it? That’s what Golf Channel asked, via Twitter. It put out a call to “swing experts” asking how everything looks.

We’re not sure how many of those who replied are swing experts, but one of them most assuredly is, Woods’ former instructor Hank Haney, who weighed in with this: “That’s a swing he could win with, it’s not across the line and stuck inside coming down, a little stiff looking but it’s good enough.”

We’ll defer to Haney here on the swing itself; he worked with Woods for six years. But the issue is not whether one swing looks adequate, but whether Woods’ back can withstand increased repetitions that will likely include amping up the speed and explosiveness. In other words, will his back eventually allow him to put in the requisite hours at least to become competitive again?

Other replies to Golf Channel’s query, incidentally, ranged from, “looks like he has a great future as a recreational golfer” to “THE GOAT BACK AT IT.”

We’ll see. In the mean time, we’ll eagerly wait for another installment of Tiger: The Comeback.

UPDATE: Woods has been cleared “to resume full golf activity with no restrictions,” Bob Harig of ESPN reported. “He got a nice report and is allowed to proceed,” Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg told Harig. “He can do as much as he needs to do. Tiger is going to take this very, very slowly. This is good, but he plans to do it the right way.”
