One major point to note is that Bryson DeChambeau prefers lower degrees of loft on his clubs. He does not go with the conventional loft angles, owing to the fact that he approaches a ball with a different swing technique than most people. 

These are the average distances Bryson DeChambeau can reach with every club in his bag. However, the numbers may vary with each passing tournament. Some golf courses offer more distance due to elevation levels and vice versa.
