It seems like 90% of swings look so alike, especially among the under 30 players, that I enjoy seeing the non-cookie cutter swings like his or Matthew Wolff's have success.

I know he subscribes to Kirk Junge's Youtube channel and have heard him say he "sets up for impact" at address which is what Kirk talks about.  I am not Bryson Dechambeau, but I can attest to the simplicity of his swing, quality of contact and how I have given up no distance.  The only thing more simple is your classic swing advice.

I think BD's swing is one that does not benefit from 'timing' or what not, it has very few moving parts and benefits from the application of strength.  You combine this with someone that has PGA level talent and you get what you see in that drive.

He's not the only big, strong guy on tour (DJ, Koepka, Champ).

Do the others "throttle back" , or what?

I don't think they can do what he does as consistently because of their swing vs his swing.  I think his swing is VERY simple, and that is what allows him to go at it so hard.

The roids must be really kicking in now.

 

It's not steroids. He just drinks a ridiculous amount of protein shakes.

You buy that one, don't you?

No one, and I mean no one, claims to drink that many protein shakes unless they are on steroids.

I've bought into it hook-line-and-sinker ever since his interview back in December:  https://golf.com/news/features/bryson-dechambeau-massive-workout-routine/

Having a bad back myself … I would love to know his full core routine (assuming this 59 year old body could handle it, lol). 

I don't think he looks "roid-massive".  There's far less muscular definition than he had a year or so ago.  He looks more like a power lifter.  That combined with maintained flexibility seems like a perfect recipe for what he's trying to achieve.

Hold on a second.

Powerlifting Is One of the Only Sports Where Steroids Are Allowed

I’m in the middle of the warm-up area of a British powerlifting competition. The athletes around me will soon walk out onto the platform and perform their best squat, bench and deadlift in an attempt to score the biggest total score of the day. For months they’ve been timing their nutrition, training, supplements – and in some cases steroids – perfectly to have a shot at lifting more weight than they ever have before.

In this competition, athletes are divided into "flights" or sections, depending on how much they lift. But there is another divide: those who compete under the influence of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) – mainly steroids – and those who don’t.

PEDs are used to help increase performance in sport by raising strength, accelerating muscle growth, and aiding recovery. They have a range of negative side effects including reduced sperm count and shrunken testicles in men and hair growth and loss of breasts for women.

Despite being legal to take – but illegal to distribute without prescription – steroids and other PEDs are outrightly banned in most sports. Apart from powerlifting.
