Bryson Dechambeau new caddie Greg Bodnie has been in the bag for the PGA Championship 2023. Greg started working with him at LIV Golf Tulsa.
Before, Tim Tucker worked for Bryson and they succeeded with the championship. Tucker began assisting DeChambeau at the 2016 Memorial competition and did so through the middle of 2017.
Dechambeau has eight PGA Tour victories including the 2020 U.S. Open and has won the U.S. Amateur and the NCAA Division I championship.
Also, he won his first PGA Tour victory at the John Deere Classic on July 16, 2017 defeating Patrick Rodgers by one shot.
Bryson Dechambeau Will Suit Up With Bodine
Bryson Dechambeau and Greg Bodine entered the final green in the opening round of the 2023 PGA Championship on May 18, 2023.
In the opening round at Oak Hill, Dechambeau put forth a solid effort that allowed him to achieve a 4-under 66. He tied his Championship low score and had a one-shot advantage over Scottie Scheffler, Dustin Johnson, and Corey Conners.
PGA Professional Kenny Pigman got hit by Bryson's errant tee shot in the process. He averaged 347 yards on the two holes seen, and his ball speed was constantly in the mid-180s.
Following his performance, caddie Greg stated that Bryson has the pace and can move the ball and is chipping it.
Bodine watched Bryson's careful preparation pay off with a creative game plan highlighting DeChambeau's rediscovered talents.
Before hearing from DeChambeau's staff that they were seeking a new looper, Bodine had been out of the game for two years and was managing a brand-new indoor golf facility in Seattle.
Bryson and Greg have been friendly but not particularly close throughout the years. Also, they have played on the same U.S. Cup teams and engaged in a few Sunday battles.
Also, as they teamed up at a LIV event, Dechambeau recorded the best result of his LIV career there. He then carried that momentum into the year's second major title.
