Bryson DeChambeau looks to be focused on his golf game and not his dating life as the golfer does not appear to have a girlfriend at the moment. DeChambeau was most recently linked to Sophia Bertolami, but the golfer has been absent from her social media posts since 2018. Bertolami posted a photo of herself holding hands with DeChambeau during a PGA tournament.
“Despite being a mad scientist, I’ll always love holding your hand 😜⛳️❤️ So proud of you B!” Bertolami noted on Instagram on August 26, 2018.
DeChambeau responded with two kissing emojis, but it has been almost two years since their last public social media interaction. There is always the chance that DeChambeau is dating someone privately, but his Instagram page is focused on golf as well as his workout routine.
DeChambeau Added 20 Pounds of Muscle During the PGA Tour Layoff Amidst COVID-19

DeChambeau cited a desire to add more power to his drives as a big reason for the transformation. The golfer began adjusting his workout routine last year as he explained in a 2019 interview with Golf Week.
“I actually had to get my wrists stronger,” DeChambeau noted. “I had to train, do farmer walks, 70 pounds in each hand and move them like that when I walk to get my grip strength up. Did a lot of pull ups with just the fingers, holding on with the palm, just doing a couple other things, inflexion, flexion stuff, internal, external rotation of the wrist.”
Bertolami Was a Nursing Student at Belmont University
