375 Yard Drives – Who Did It Better, Mike Dunaway Or Bryson DeChambeau?

I think everyone here knows the answer to that, but if you don’t, it isn’t the guy who’s being accused of “breaking golf” at the moment.

I would say it was a guy who was nearing his 50th birthday and who didn’t spend his days working out in the gym and drinking protein shakes, nor did he use a driver designed to keep the ball as long and straight on mis-hits as off the sweet spot.

So, if you’re looking for up to 375 yard drives, you could certainly try it doing it like this:

Now, if you have a lot of time to spend in the gym and don’t mind looking like you’ve spent a little too much time at the buffet (that’s not a six-pack Bryson is showing in the above thumbnail, that’s a spare tire), and risking injuring yourself while throwing yourself at the ball on every swing, you may prefer how a 49 year old Mike Dunaway did it.

Again, Bryson DeChambeau is 26 years old, Dunaway was 49 and had Type 2 diabetes, and he was not using a space-aged driver that makes it hard if not impossible to miss – he was using a stainless steel Callaway Big Bertha driver, which has a head-size compared below to my TaylorMade RBZ 2 driver:

I don’t know about you all, but I’d rather work on technique to increase my driving distance.

Far easier to do, especially if you have all the time in the world to do it…

    No contest. Dunaway by far. A swing without effort versus a robotic swing like Bryson. I’ll take Mike D all day. When you look at his driver compared to Brysons and today’s golf ball versus what Dunaway used, not even on the same planet
