Bryson DeChambeau has struggled to start the 2022 season. In five scheduled worldwide starts, the big bomber has posted a T14 (in Tiger’s 20-player Bahamas event), T25 (at the 39-player season opener in Hawaii), an early withdrawal at the Sony Open, a missed cut at Torrey Pines, and then a mid-tournament withdrawal in Saudi Arabia.
The golf mob on social media claim DeChambeau’s body is breaking down from too much weight gain and distance training.
DeChambeau, though, had a message for the concern trolls: chill out!
“Everyone needs to chill,” DeChambeau posted to his Instagram account on Saturday.
“Yes, I hurt myself but not from hitting it far. I slipped and fell this week on Tuesday unfortunately. I know people probably won’t believe me, but that is the truth. I will be back stronger and better than ever in a few weeks. Thank you for the hospitality Saudi Golf. Thank you for your concerns and keep hitting bombs!! I will be back …”
On Instagram, Bryson says his injury issues this week were caused by a fall, not his intense training, and that he’ll return to competition in a “few weeks.”
