Bryson DeChambeau Says That He Wants To Live To Be '130 Or 140'

It's fair to say that since the return of golf, most of the stories in the sport have related to Bryson DeChambeau.

The American stole headlines with his physique early on, putting on 20kg of muscle in around nine months. Then came his spat with a cameraman in Detroit, followed by a meltdown at the Memorial Tournament in Ohio.

He is back in the news again today, but it is for something he said away from the golf course.

DeChambeau is clearly no strnager to making the most of his body, as evidenced by the previously mentioned muscle gain.

Speaking to GQ, he said he wants to continue to push the boundaries of what his body can do by living to be '130 or 140' years-old. Seriously:

I've always been interested in life in general, growing up. I always questioned everything. I didn't have a lot of resources when I was young. I couldn't go down all these roads with these questions that I asked at an early age.

But now that I've been able to have some success, I've kinda gotten deep into most of these things and only taken what has added value to me. I'm always trying to add more value to my life in general.

I mean, my goal is to live to 130 or 140. I really think that's possible now with today's technology.

I think somebody’s going to do it in the next 30 or 40 years. I want humans to be better. I want them to succeed.

I want to say, 'Hey, this is all of the stuff I've experienced that helped me do my best. If it helps you, great. If it doesn't, well, let's keep working on it'.

Straight out of the Ricky Bobby playbook.

The oldest person in recorded history was French woman Jeanne Calment, who lives to be 122-years old before passing away in 1997.

We can't wait for our great-great-great-grandchildren to see a muscle bound Bryson DeChambeau strutting his stuff around the place.
