DeChambeau is not a conventional golfer who only learns by experience. The golf ace built his style of play around science and achieved the ability to hit the longest shots of all.

“Chris Pratt said to me, ‘Look, when I do a movie and people say the movie is terrible and I’m not a good actor, that doesn’t define me'” said De Chambeau.

People even started calling him “Brooksie” while he was playing tournaments. He was later supported by Jay Monahan when he claimed anyone who called him Brooksie would be taken off the field.
