Bryson DeChambeau says he will take a different approach to speed training after the Open as he seeks to once again become one of the best golfers in the world.

DeChambeau, one of the longest hitters in the sport, battled wrist and hip injuries in the first half of the year and underwent surgery on his left hand after missing the Masters in april.

The eight-time PGA Tour winner skipped the PGA Championship and struggled in his next two starts before moving to the LIV Golf Invitational Series earlier this month, where he recorded his first top 10 in his Portland debut.

Speaking on his fitness after a third-round 67 at St Andrews, DeChambeau said: “I’m probably 97-98 per cent now. There are times when my hand gets tired, still tired. I’ll start speed training again after – in August, when I don’t have any tournaments running for me.

“I have to train my hand a lot more efficiently. I didn’t bother with it at all when I started my speed training. It was all core and everything, and it was luckily pretty solid – I didn’t I’ve never had a problem with anything in my core. I just haven’t trained the hand properly. That’s what I’m going to focus on, working mostly as I start.

“Hopefully I can start to pick up the pace again and become even more consistent. Look, I want to be one of the best golfers in the world, if not the best, at some point in my career. make sure I hit straight while I hit farther.”

“I think over time everything will work out,” DeChambeau said. “I think to some extent we [golf’s tours] will find a way to coexist and work together to create the best possible entertainment for the world.

“When I won four times in 2018, even though I wasn’t world No. 1 at the time, I felt like my game was world No. 1. There’s not necessarily ranking system that has to be ‘oh, that’s what makes you number 1 in the world’.

“I think people inherently know who’s playing better golf at that time. If that’s the goal, that’s fine for me too. But it’s a bit of both. I think at At some point, we’ll sort it out.”

DeChambeau had six under in his third round until a four-putt double bogey in the 16th, with the American hailing a “beautiful” par in the 17th after being forced to play off the road during a rollercoaster conclusion to his Saturday.

“It is what it is,” DeChambeau said. “It’s golf. It was definitely some adventurous holes. I was able to get a few lucky breaks, especially the 17th and make a nice par from that route, I hit it perfectly. It bounced and rolled beautifully . I was very lucky but certainly happy with the way I finished.”
