Who is Bryson DeChambeau? The leader of the Masters, friend of Donald Trump

Ever since Bryson DeChambeau made his mark on the golf world, the “mad scientist” has always done things his way. Whether through his careful studies of golf theory and his obsessive desire to break down the mechanics of the perfect swing, or through his unprecedented commitment to “bulking season” and an unprecedented physical transformation that added even more power with his monstrous drive, the Californian left nothing overlooked in his incessant quest for perfection over 18 holes.

His best start at the Masters, taking a one-shot lead at 7-under par in the second round on Friday, was perhaps the clearest sign yet that DeChambeau is about to reap the rewards of his tireless work. DeChambeau is already a major champion, scoring a dominant six-shot victory at the 2020 US Open at Winged Foot, but the 30-year-old showed a different side to his game as he put the finishing touches on an opening round 65. Can DeChambeau conquer Augusta National and tame the danger lurking behind the tranquility of Amen Corner?

But it takes more than powerful motivation to become a Masters champion, and DeChambeau learned that the hard way.
