Bryson DeChambeau is currently revolutionizing the way people think about golf. Perhaps the first thing the budding star was known for was his single length irons. Well, offered in this auction is the very 1st set of single length irons produced for Bryson DeChambeau. If he continues on his current trajectory, these irons will be well suited for the Hall of Fame one day.
In 2013, Bryson DeChambeau was in his freshman year at SMU and went to celebrated club maker David Edel of Edel Golf with the idea of Edel making him a bespoke set of single length irons. In October 2013 Edel made this first set of single length irons for Bryson, which at the time was the first real set made for him. This set was made from an unground set of blades that Edel had collaborated with Nick Faldo in 2012. They were machined in house and hand ground to 280 grams per club. According to Edel, when Bryson received the irons he was ecstatic that he finally had a real set of single length irons. He played this set for about 4 to 5 months, and then his next request to Edel was a set of cavity backs which he used to win the NCAA’s and US Amateur.
This set is historically significant as it was the genesis of Bryson’s single length evolution to which a new found methodology of technique and equipment found credence at the highest level. This set of Edel made Faldo irons were the first set of single length irons produced for reigning US Open Champion Bryson DeChambeau.
