Who is Bryson? Kyle Berkshire has set a new speed record by hitting a golf ball a staggering 236.2MPH in the simulator… and he can also drive more than 450 yards – putting LIV Golf’s big-hitter to shame DeChambeau
Long drive hitter Kyle Berkshire reiterated why he is so revered with his killer swing, which set a new record.
The American almost put a ball into orbit while in a simulator – a difficult feat – hitting it at 236.2MPH.
Awesome, it’s not a one off. In fact, Berkshire has reached the previously untouchable pace on three separate occasions.
He also didn’t hit tantalizing speeds in his first three outings. Throughout the session, the world’s ranking No.1 World Long Driver had 70 swings, per Golf.com.

Despite breaking the TrackMan ball-speed record, the 26-year-old remains unsatisfied.
‘Honestly, it’s frustrating because I think I topped out at 158.9 [mph],’ he told Golf.com. ‘I probably have 238 [mph] in the tank. I just didn’t focus too much.’
‘I just don’t have a weird ball where I smoke and swing really fast at the same time,’ Berkshire continued.
‘You have to get that to line up. I haven’t had that in a few sessions, but it will happen.
Bryson DeChambeau has received mentorship from Berkshire for speed shots in the past
‘Any session now I can go [237 or 238 mph]but it’s a new TrackMan personal record of over a mile per hour for me.’
‘It’s good to go to 236.2, but we have more in the tank.’
Berkshire previously trained with LIV Golf star Bryson DeChambeau. Even the latter doesn’t threaten his countrymen at the pace of the game anytime soon.
DeChambeau hit a personal record of 219mph at the 2021 World Long Drive Championships.
