Bryson DeChambeau ‘nukes it for a living’

Appearing in his $220,000 Bentley Bentayga, DeChambeau is asked what he does for a living. He jokingly replies, “I nuke it for a living.”

From what we can gather, this was a reference to the power and distance play he is notorious for in the golfing world. His win in 2020 U.S. Championship triggered a lot of debates revolving around the pros and cons of such play, and what it means for the future of golf.

In the video, DeChambeau then went head to head with his friend Martin Borgmeier, the European long drive champion. The latter won the first round to see who could hit a longer drive.
