The golfer has been working himself to the bone.

Next weekend, starting September 24, the Ryder Cup will begin over at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. Several big names from the golfing scene will be playing, including one of the PGA’s leading stars, Bryson DeChambeau. DeChambeau, who holds the distinction of the longest average drive distance in the entire PGA, has been working himself ragged preparing for the event.

“My hands are wrecked from it,” DeChambeau said in an interview with “People don’t realize how difficult long drive really is.

“In golf, it’s the one thing where you can judge your accomplishments by a number. Not necessarily by going out and playing golf, because you can catch a sprinkler head or catch a bad break or bad wind. On FlightScope, you can see the ball speed number, and when you obtain a ball speed number, it’s so different and unique. It’s like a shot-putter shot-putting a new record number. You’re trying to find that full potential to break through.”

DeChambeau regularly hits the gym and the green every day, starting his routines with 90-minute speed sessions. “You’re talking about maxing out PRs [personal records] in the gym,” he said. “It’s the same sort of thing you do with speed training. When you hit that new number, everybody goes nuts. It’s just a cool environment to be a part of.”

But while DeChambeau has been hitting things hard, he’s not worried about pushing himself too hard this close to the Ryder Cup. “I do it every week,” he said. “Is it daunting? Hell yeah. At first, when I was trying to do it last year, it was very scary. But now that I’ve been through it and experienced the worst pains from it, and the most relaxed state of it where I’m not doing any speed training, I know how to kind of balance it for the most part. Why not go hard at life and do both?”
