Putt simply, not everyone needs to drive like DeChambeau

By CHUAH CHOO CHIANG | China Daily | Updated: 2021-01-14 00:00

Unless you are Bryson DeChambeau, the old adage, "Drive for show and putt for dough", has long been a reliable formula for success on the golf course.

Last year, DeChambeau shook up the sport, with his Popeye-like forearms and power-packed swing enabling him to launch ball after ball further than anyone. The American was ranked as the tour's longest driver in 2020 with an average 322 yards off the tee, and currently leads the 2020-21 season stats with an eye-popping 337 yards.

A 428-yard drive by DeChambeau at the Travelers Championship last June, was recorded as the longest-ever drive on the tour. But while DeChambeau did put on a show, it was Dustin Johnson who ran off with the dough that week. The world No 1 claimed the first of three wins in 2020 en route to becoming the FedExCup champion.
