Of course, hell 80% of the guys on this forum could.

OK, I'm going to come clean here for the first time.   I am not just another guy. I worked with Bryson a week before he won his first Memorial in 2018 and that kick started him to several wi

Yep. He had the wind he said he wanted and he hit it where he said he would, just right of the green. Time for some of you guys to find a new slant

“I’m looking at it as a par 67 for me because I can reach all the par fives in two, no problem. If the conditions stay the way they are, that’s what I feel like par is for me.


There is definitely a possibility I don’t play well, and I could shoot whatever everyday and shoot a lot over par relative to my par and still play decent.”

 

He says and considers a lot of things. I’ll take the over and on balls in the water if he decides to try it.

He is not even hitting driver this week LOL. If he creates his NASA approved rocket ship driver, yeah he may just be thinking hole-in-one on every tee

I can't see him trying unless he's out of it...Too big a penalty to miss. If it lands short he has to hit again from there right?

Its 555 yards but if he goes over the lake instead of around it its a 350 carry.

Apparently hes considering it.

Can he do it?

No, or maybe I should elaborate, he might be able to do it sometimes but the cost of failing is too big, taking your third from the tee, dont think he will try unless he is out of contention

As with most things Bryson, I suspect people talking about him and his plans would be considered mission accomplished.

He could do it as long as there is no hurt in the wind and he is able to turn it over and launch it way up. He'd probably need to scratch 200mph ball speed to do it though.

No. Air over water is cooler so 350 across the lake is a good 10% longer. 

You would be surprised how many people do not know that. I am sure with his mind Bryson very well knows that

Cooler or more humid? I’d think most know about shorter in cooler weather but surprisingly not so in humid weather...

And another point Sea Level affects that too. Where I live I am dead on sea level

Absolutely it does. In my time there I’ve seen and heard about people doing it, not often but enough (there’s quite a few long drive guys in the area or that would stop by) it would be unique to see in the API for sure.

With no hurting wind, he could do it - Hank Kuehne did it in a practice round awhile back.

Messing around in a practice round, sure. During the tournament when there is a group on the green and the group ahead is waiting to hit their second shots (if they are going for it in 2), is he going to wait 20 minutes and back up the entire field? I would hope not. The game is slow enough as it is.

If he swings out of his shoes then yes he can.  Mind you, we are are talking 200+mph ball speed which he can easily do.  You also have to factor in wind as well.  He's not going to go for it if there's a head wind.  He may consider it if it's down wind or relatively benign.

The lake could be warmer than the land in the early morning or late evening.

Wind will determine more than either temperature or humidity, unless he intends on skipping the ball 350+ yards. The temperature and humidity gradient is only close to the surface and will have practically zero effect on a ball 95+ feet in the air.

 

10%? Try a yard if there was a giant iceberg in the lake and giant fans to blow the air upward.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
