Bryson DeChambeau celebrates winning the FedEx Cup event at TPC Boston on Monday

Bryson DeChambeau uses maths for putting and a compass on the course… but he’s fiery, winning for fun and is set to partner his pal Tiger Woods in Paris

  • Bryson DeChambeau won his second successive PGA Tour event on Monday
  • He is now certain to receive a wild-card pick for the US Ryder Cup team
  • There he is likely to partner Tiger Woods, with their friendship growing
  • But his unorthodox style, based on maths and science, will shock some

When Bryson DeChambeau first emerged as a top amateur player, his physics-based approach to golf – which looks, quite frankly, barmy – earned him the nickname ‘Mad Scientist’. A year after turning pro he earned his first PGA Tour victory, and that moniker became a more respectful ‘The Scientist’.

Now, after a fourth big win in just over a year, including back-to-back romps over star-studded fields in the mega-money FedEx Cup play-offs the last two weeks, that nickname perhaps needs a further upgrade to ‘The Professor’.

Oh, and now he’ll be working on a formula for how to beat Europe in the┬áRyder Cup. Those wins at Ridgewood and TPC Boston mean DeChambeau is a shoo-in for one of United States captain Jim Furyk’s four wild-card picks for golf’s greatest dust-up.
