“I think my mentality about the game has changed quite a bit,” DeChambeau said. “The biggest change that’s different for me now has been my mentality about the game. Yes, I’ve gotten stronger, yes, I’ve gotten faster with the golf swing. But all of that has allowed me to have this different mentality about the game.”

Furthermore, Bryson DeChambeau said that he started evaluating if he could gain distance off the tee. And Bryson thought by doing so, golf will become slightly easier for him. Hence, to execute it, he had to make a few mental changes as well.

“And so, my biggest change has been my brain. How I’ve thought about executing shots on certain holes, not having to feel like I have to practice as much because my distance is just at a different level, where I’m going to be having wedges into greens, so now I’m more focused on wedging,” DeChambeau mentioned.

“It’s completely shifted my whole brain, and the dynamic of that compared to what it was before when I had to have every single part of my game working really, really well in order to win.”
