Here we go with what I feel is going to be a massive year for the golf industry and the combination of Bryson DeChambeau and med school attending, massive pig-owning (seriously), girlfriend Sophia Phalen Bertolami. I’ve been at this job a long, long time and I know what plays out here on the social media streets with you guys who would love nothing more than to be a world-class golfer with slam pieces on your private jets.
Now let me get to what I assume is going down this week in Hawaii at the Sentry. Sophia isn’t location stamping her latest Instagram work of art, but I am going to predict she’s on this trip with DeChambeau. That surfing photo below has to be Hawaii. You can’t fool me with these pics.
Sophia is still one of the most intriguing IGers out there. She first appeared on BC back in the day because she was hanging out with Mike Napoli. That became an instant follow for obvious reasons. Then she went on some other trip with a MLBer. And now DeChambeau. She also has what appears to be a medical school career going on and that absolutely massive pig that shows up in pics with her from time to time. It’s a circus.
Anyway, the IG is fired up again — she had been quiet since November — and DeChambeau is ranked No. 5 in the world. It’s going to be a great season. I’m locked in.
