Rory McIlroy had a NSFW response when asked about Bryson DeChambeau's booming drives

While golf fans marveled at Bryson DeChambeau's rides from afar during the Charles Schwab Challenge last week, Rory McIlroy was able to observe the Basher from up close in the last round. Not surprisingly, seeing DeChambeau's newly discovered pop in person was just as impressive.
Before this week's RBC Heritage, McIlroy was asked if he would like to play with DeChambeau at the Colonial on Sunday. And just like Bryson doesn't hold anything back these days when he hits the driver, the world's number one lets go of his answer.

"Yes, I mean, of course, it came out earlier this year and it was a bit bigger," McIlroy told reporters in Harbor Town on Wednesday. "You could see that he got a little bit of speed and stuff and he went a long way. But he did a couple drives on Sunday that Harry and I just looked at and we're like, holy shit that was incredible. "
These are strong words from anyone, but especially from someone who is considered the best driver of the golf ball in today's game. And for a good reason. DeChambeau led the field in both driving distance (340.4 yards) and strokes from the tee (1,830) last week, but a bogey on the penultimate hole kept him out of a playoff that Daniel Berger eventually won.
DeChambeau, who weighs up to 240 pounds, has expressed his intention to gain weight to show his distance since the fall, and the results speak for themselves. That being said, McIlroy does not plan to gain pounds to help his own game.

"I actually feel best when I'm lighter," said McIlroy. "I was probably the easiest at the start of the season, a kind of California swing, with Torrey Pines. I remember I weighed in Torrey on Sunday morning before I went to the finals, and I was like 155. I think so is half of Bryson now. "
While McIlroy still believes Cameron Champ is the longest player on the PGA Tour, he believes DeChambeau "gets there" after Sunday's performance.
"He hit one in the wind on the 11th," McIlroy continued. "I met a really good one and probably hit him like 315, 320. He must have flown my ball 40 meters. He hit it in the wind like 370, 375. It was crazy. It was crazy. It's incredible. "
Again with the "incredible" of a four-time major champion. If Bryson sees this, his head may become as big as his biceps.
