(CNN)Bryson DeChambeau has muscled his way to becoming a major winner, and he's now hoping it'll bring him success at golf's most famous competition.

As he prepares for the Masters, which begin on Thursday, the 2020 US Open winner has brought a new weapon with him: a new driver.

DeChambeau had contemplated using a 48-inch driver last year, but opted against it in the end, finishing 18 shots behind winner Dustin Johnson.

The world No. 5 shot up golf's world rankings in 2020 when he returned from the break brought on by the coronavirus pandemic having added 40 pounds of muscle and able to hit the ball even further.

Now the longest driver on the PGA Tour, he won his maiden major at the US Open last year.

While he's hoping his length with give him advantages -- he spent his practice rounds trying to blast his drive on the first tee over the trees protecting the right side, thereby leaving a much shorter shot to a hole which is 445 yards long -- the intricacies of the course means the rest of his game has to be on point if he wants to have any success.

"There are certain holes out here where length does help tremendously.

Length is only as good as you can hit your next shot, is what I always say.
