Bryson DeChambeau Quotes

Bryson James Aldrich DeChambeauBryson DeChambeau quotes: inside the mind of the golfer who’s tryin’ to change the game.

“I always look at the worst situations and try and figure out how I can make them better. Let today’s garbage be better than yesterday’s, is my motto.”

“Most people are afraid of failure. I love failure because it tells me where to go next.”

“It’s good to try and learn how to adapt.”

“If I wanted to learn Arabic or Russian, I could. Or tie my shoes in a new way, I could. Why? Dedication.”

“The search for information gives me more confidence, because confidence arises from understanding.”

“You know, that’s the thing that people sometimes miss, is the fact that those moments when you’re at your, relatively speaking, lowest, are the times when you can learn the most.”

“I’m very technical in everything I do. But one thing I don’t do is set goals. Goals are actually a hindrance to me, because they limit you.”

“Most people think that I’m so technical that I don’t have a feel aspect or a rhythm aspect of it, but that’s just the opposite. I need to get into my momentum and my rhythm in regards to being technical and analytical, and also being that artist.”

“I’m a total nonconformist; for me, it’s about going down rabbit holes.”

“Growing up, I was the odd bird. My interest in mathematics, my interest in the world, how I approach things from a scientific standpoint. You’re always going to be looked at as a different bird.”

“I’m the one that’s used to being not normal.”

“I’ve always had to work twice as hard as everybody, growing up. I was always a guy that would study for three hours and barely get an A on the test and you would have another guy next to me who would study for maybe 30 minutes and ace it.”

“Crazy is a relative term, you know. Everybody is unique in their own way and some people work harder for longer hours than others.”

“They say I’m the smart scientist. I don’t know if I’m truly that. I’m more of a good experimenter.”

“Golf is my passion and livelihood. I am an extremely passionate player and I am always working on ways to be better.”

“You’ve got to be able to be on point with your game if you want to make it.”

“People don’t realize all the stuff I gave up growing up. I could have gone to parties and had fun at adventure parks with friends on weekends and things like that. But I went out and worked my butt off for eight hours playing golf.”

“I can’t tell you how many times I had opportunities to do other things and went and golfed because I wanted to be the best.”

“I make sure that I’m 100% ready to go.”

“It’s pretty cool what you can do to the body by working out.”

“I go to the gym with a mindset to fix myself, never to break myself down. I’m literally working out every single day as hard as I can.”

“It’s literally: I’ll be injured or hurt in some facet and I’ll go work out to heal it, to make it get better so I can hold that tolerance level.”

“I just kept going to the gym, and luckily I have a gym at home, so I just go in there probably for 30 minutes and then I go back out and then I go back in for another 30 minutes and accumulated like about three-and-a-half hours of working out a day. It was a lot. It was ridiculous. But I said I’m going to do it. I’m going to do it right.”

“I changed my body, changed my mindset in the game, and I was able to accomplish a win while playing a completely different style of golf. And it’s pretty amazing to see that. I hope it’s an inspiration to a lot of people.”

“So many times I relied on science, and it worked every single time. I use the computers to maximize my efficiency and establish a baseline for my swing, but once I’m on the course, I don’t think about any of that. I just play.”

“That’s what I’ve always been about is trying to shine a light on the game of golf and not push people away, with developing the one-length irons, having a new way of swinging the golf club and doing all these different things that look weird, but have been a massive benefit to the game—that’s what I’m about.”

“Every tournament that I go to, I’ll prepare my absolute best to play my best golf. And if my best golf is a Top-10, then so be it.”

“I want to be the number one player in the world, right? But at the end of the day you have to go through each individual step and be able to execute each individual step to be able to get to that goal.”

“Knowing that I can play with some of the best out there is definitely encouraging. I know I can play with the best of them. I can be one of the best in the world at one point in time.”

“Anything that helps shoot lower scores or makes golf more fun and grows the game, that’s what I’m all about.”

“How much better can I get? Oh, man, in short, layman’s terms, yes, absolutely, you can always get better.”

“I feel like I’ve been able to bring an idea to the world stage and shine a light on a different way to play, an easier way. I want to change the game.”

“That’s my whole goal for the game of golf—it’s not only to make myself a better player, but to have people have a more enjoyable experience when I’m around.”

“My goal in playing golf and playing this game is to try and figure it out. I’m just trying to figure out this very complex, multivariable game, and multidimensional game as well. It’s very, very difficult. It’s a fun journey for me. I hope that inspires people to say, ‘Hey, look, maybe there is a different way to do it.’ Not everybody has to do it my way. I’m not saying that. I’m just saying in general that there are different ways to do things. If you can find your own way, find your passion—like Arnie said, swing your swing. That’s what I do. That’s what Matthew Wolff does. That’s what Tiger does. That’s what Phil does. That’s what everybody does, and we’re all trying to play the best golf we can. Hopefully, my way inspires people.”

“I’ve had some struggles, sometimes, with difficulty and people saying this, people saying that. I’ve done some things I shouldn’t have, but it’s about growing up and learning how to be a true professional.”

“I’m not really smart, but I’m dedicated. I can be good at anything if I love it and dedicate myself. And I love history. I love science. I love music. I love golf. I love learning. I love life.”

“I love trying to be the best at anything and everything.”

“I’ve always been interested in life in general, growing up. I always questioned everything. I didn’t have a lot of resources when I was young. I couldn’t go down all these roads with these questions that I asked at an early age. But now that I’ve been able to have some success, I’ve kinda gotten deep into most of these things and only taken what has added value to me. I’m always trying to add more value to my life in general. I mean, my goal is to live to 130 or 140.”

“I really think that’s possible now with today’s technology. I think somebody’s going to do it in the next 30 or 40 years. I want humans to be better. I want them to succeed. I want to say, ‘Hey, this is all of the stuff I’ve experienced that helped me do my best.’ If it helps you, great. If it doesn’t, well, let’s keep working on it. Let’s keep figuring stuff out. That’s my take on life.”

“But no matter what, my focus and my message to everybody out there is: each and every day that you’re living life, try and make this day better than the previous day.”
