Collin Morikawa explains the work ethic of Bryson DeChambeau

 Collin Morikawa had given an interview to Golf Digest where he was asked about Bryson DeChambeau and his work ethic. “The guy was grinding on the range after Saturday’s match! I had no intention of doing that,” said Morikawa.

“To see why he’s loved by so many people, it’s because of his work ethic. The amount of work he puts in to be at a long drive contest right now it requires a crazy amount of work. Props to him. He is changing the game.”

Bryson sadly didn’t win the event, but he performed significantly better than what people had expected. The 28-year-old managed to get into the last day through a round-robin of 16 players. But sadly, he couldn’t break into the top 8 and was eliminated in the semis.

However, his longest drive came on the first day when he smashed the ball off the tee to 406-yards. But even this couldn’t get him a top spot in the group that day as Martin Borgmeier bombed a 416-yard drive.
