Bryson DeChambeau is often described as a "mad scientist" but his formula is working. He has won the first two Fed Ex Cup playoff events on the PGA Tour to bring his tally to four wins in just over 13 months.
The in-form DeChambeau added the Dell Technologies Championship in Boston to his victory at the Northern Trust Open in New Jersey in late August.
The 24-year-old American is known for his unconventional approach to the game but his success is attracting attention. He recently threw the first pitch at a baseball game between the Chicago Red Sox and the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
The physics major also won Jack Nicklaus' Memorial tournament at Muirfield Village, Ohio, in June.
DeChambeau uses irons that are all the same length -- 37.5 inches -- and he often stamps them with a name rather than a number.
His unconventional swing came from the pages of a physics-heavy 1969 instruction book called "The Golfing Machine" by Homer Kelly.
DeChambeau has also experimented with a "side-saddle" putting technique.
His recent run has taken him to 12th in the world rankings and top of the season-long FedExCup standings.
