One man who always finds himself in the golfing spotlight is DeChambeau and there won’t be any change to this come Olympic week.
The hard-hitting, scientific American has revolutionised the game of golf, and whilst many haven’t agreed with some of his approaches it has definitely worked for him.
DeChambeau has racked up an impressive eight PGA Tour victories in just four years, including a first major victory at the 2020 US Open, with many putting his victories down to his aggressive, long distance style of play.
The 27-year-old will therefore be heading into next week’s Olympic event with plenty of confidence as he arrives at the lengthy 7,446-yard Kasumigaseki Country Club with the longest driving average in the field.
Waving the flag for Team Australia will be the ever-reliable, Cameron Smith and the Brisbane-born golfer knows a thing or two about winning golfing events alongside his fellow Australian, Mark Leishman.
The pair ran out victorious in this year’s Zurich Classic, beating South African double, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel in a dramatic one-hole play-off back in April of this year.
