    DANIEL BERGER WON THE CHARLES SCHWAB CHALLENGE at Colonial Country Club on Sunday with a par on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff with Collin Morikawa.

    It was the first PGA Tour event since the coronavirus forced a shutdown of the sports world. There were no spectators.

    One surprise (at least for me) was Bryson DeChambeau, who has transformed himself into the PGA Tour's "Incredible Hulk."

    As you can see above and below, brawny Bryson is going at the tee ball like Arnold Palmer in his prime. Except that Bryson is physically huge compared to Arnie and he's hitting his drives into the next zip code.

    On average, DeChambeau's drives are going 20 yards farther this year. And yes, at 323 and change he's the leading the PGA Tour in driving distance. Long ball seems to be working for him. Bryson finished in a tie for third in Fort Worth.

    So, what's the deal?

    "My ultimate goal is to get as strong as I can," DeChambeau said, "applying some force and speed to the swing to see what it can handle."

    (H//T Geoff Shackelford)

    And it looks super uncomfortable and in no way sustainable.
