Shriners Open Champ is Mad Scientist and Shares Some Secrets

Twice, I asked 2018 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open champion Bryson DeChambeau to expand on some of his unique swing and golf philosophies and twice he said they were “secrets.”

But the second time he opened up a bit about what it feels like to be “neurologically comfortable.”

When I asked in the post-tournament press conference to expand on that feeling, he first turned me down, which drew laughter in the room and has since been somewhat of a phenomenon on Twitter. But I persisted and he gave us a little bit to ponder.

“No. That’s a secret,” he first said.

“Okay, that’s the second time this week you’ve not given me the scoop. Give us a little insight,” I replied.

He then said, “Because you realize how important it is to me. I would say just on a general basis that it’s something that I’ve derived in my brain. It’s like I have this black space and it’s just of my hands and arms and body and I see it and I just take it back and have this neurological sensation or input that I have for applying force to the club. There is a track to it. I see it and in that vision. Some people look and envision shots, do all that, but I just create it in my brain.”

Bryson being Bryson. A most worthy Shriners Open champ.
