In this piece we take a look at Bryson DeChambeau's coach, Mike Schy.

Who Is Bryson DeChambeau’s Coach?

Soon to play in his first ever Ryder Cup, Bryson DeChambeau has had a stellar season which meant USA captain Jim Furyk had no option but to select him as one of the four wildcard picks for the upcoming event.

In 2018 he has won three times at the Memorial Tournament, Northern Trust and Dell-Technologies Championship which has seen him rise to as high as seventh in the world. He currently leads the FedEx Cup standings too.

Bryson may be known as The Scientist and tends to play the game in his own distinctive way, but he has still had some guidance from coaches in the past. But who is his current coach? We take a look below.

Who Is Bryson DeChambeau’s Coach?

Right now, Mike Schy plays, and has played, a significant role in the career of DeChambeau.

Owner of his own performance institute, Schy  specialises in coaching college and junior players which is in all likelihood how he met Bryson who was a star college player at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Whilst there Bryson became only the fifth player to win the NCAA individual championship and the US Amateur in the same year.

Schy has worked with DeChambeau to create the swing we see today.

DeChambeau told Golf World; “After a couple of years of guidance from Mike, we came up with a single-plane swing from The Golfing Machine that’s called a ‘zero shifting motion’ more technically. I picked a certain specific set of variations for my components and made my golf swing what it is today.”

The Golfing Machine is a book written by Homer Kelley and DeChambeau has professed his love for the book on more than one occasion.

Additionally, Schy uses FlightScope a lot in his teaching due to the data and numbers created. He said; “FlightScope provides the necessary data that no one else gives you. They are always improving and making updates to their products, and are the most accurate and innovative in the industry.” This focus on data is surely one of the reasons why DeChambeau and Schy have got on so well so far.

Schy has also played the role of club fixer too. He helped grind down the shafts for Bryson to create his one-length irons and is also believed to have been the brains behind Bryson using larger grips than usual because it allowed him to hold the club with his palms and not his fingers.
