So how heavy is the golf bag of Bryson DeChambeau?

Brian Zeigler has not been carrying Bryson’s bag for long on the tour. He stepped into the job after DeChambeau parted ways with Tim Tucker just before the 2021 Rocket Mortgage Classic. Three months into the job, Zeigler is already wanting to make a lot of changes to his duties. 

“It’s got to weigh 55 pounds,” Zeigler mentioned on the podcast. “It’s not positioned very well. It’s like the straps are super long. And what I learned too is that I’m the smallest caddie on Tour. There are like three or four guys that are like my size or smaller. … This strap is so long, and the bag I can never get it to sit on my hips. So it’s always in the shortest setting and it’s always up and I’m so hunched over.”

Zeigler was honest about the struggles he faces while on the tour but admitted to trying to get better. He’s putting in the work to be cut out for the job. 

“Because if I didn’t do anything to get stronger, like, I couldn’t do this job for a long period of time, because I’m just not tall enough or big enough to do it,” Zeigler added. “I’m actually in a big bulking phase right now. I’m trying to get up to 165 [pounds] by the time I get to Hawaii [in January]. That’s 10 pounds [to gain]. That’s a lot.”
