Bryson DeChambeau Blasts Drive, With Eyes Wide Shut

There's a reason Bryson DeChambeau is a golf superstar. He's better than the rest of us with his eyes closed.

He put that on full display during an instructional video on social media, with DeChambeau showing you should know where the ball and tee are at all times. Even, yes, while blinded.

'Right down the middle," he said, turning toward the camera. "Didn't even open my eyes."

According to, Dechambeau "uses single-length irons, has experimented with bulking up and was one of the first to adopt putting with the flagstick in."

He confirmed all that.

"It's statistically proven to be a benefit in 99 percent of situations [when the pin is in]," he once said. "Anything outside 10 feet I'm going to leave it in. If I accidentally hit it three feet instead of two feet past the flag, it will stay in the cup. It has a better potential of staying in the cup than with it out."

DeChambeau won the 2020 US Open and is generally in the race at all of the other majors. He is a constant threat to be at the top of the leaderboard.

The video comes courtesy of the LIV Golf YouTube channel.

"A drill that's very helpful for learning where the club is in space — and this may sound crazy — is the fact that you need to learn to hit the golf ball with your eyes closed," DeChambeau says.

"The most important thing that you can do is learning where the center of that club is at all times with your eyes closed," DeChambeau says. "If you can do that, you're on your pathway to hitting it like the best in the world. This is what the best in the world can do. They can literally close their eyes, hit the ball and know where it's going off the face by their input."
