Golf World Reacts to Bryson DeChambeau’s Viral ‘Fictional Character’ Statement



It would be difficult to imagine the PGA Tour without Bryson DeChambeau. The 28-year-old has made a name for himself over the past few years, especially after his US Open win in 2020. However, some time ago, DeChambeau properly considered retiring from golf.

While he did continue to play, the thought of DeChambeau stepping aside is almost unimaginable.

Wait … what?

Bryson DeChambeau took Chris Pratt’s help last year?

CBS’ Kyle Porter recently shared a snippet from a Bryson DeChambeau interview on Twitter. The highlighted content was slightly unexpected.

The young golfer was asked about what he was thinking, and what he has done to make sure he is in a better place. Though he has worked on himself, looks like Chris Pratt has been there to give him some interesting advice.

“Chris Pratt helped me out a bit through a really difficult time for me. He said play this fictional character for a while,” DeChambeau said. “I know you’re not happy, you’re in a very, very difficult spot, but just act like you’re acting for a little bit”.

DeChambeau added that as time went by, and he started feeling like himself again. At one point, he wasn’t fun to be around simply because of how frustrated or sad he was.

Of course, DeChambeau has taken responsibility for what he has been feeling and is working on it.

Thank you. I thought I was the only one. I used to really like him and now I find him insufferable

So he is a method actor? Who still hasn’t broken character

Lol, he’s so cringey. “I was never really a tool, it was all an act.” Because most people enjoy being universally disliked.

“People who aren’t golf fans are really missing out on one of the most absurd athletes of a generation,” wrote another user.

Fans seemed somewhat amused by DeChambeau’s response. “That was…a lot,” one wrote about the whole answer. They added that he should maybe focus, and not let everything get lost in translation. Some shared various Chris Pratt gifs, which were cringe-worthy to other users.

Some were not convinced about what DeChambeau had to say. They believed he was not acting and was just doing what he wanted to.

Others commented on Pratt as an actor, and how he has yet to break character.
