a bit during the lockdown. bryson dechambeau taking golf by storm. going to do a little spot the difference to start with olly. take bryson dechambeau in 2018 — compare him to 2020? the difference? about three stone. most of it muscle too. he is turning the world upside down. 25 years ago we were talking about tiger woods and how his power was changing the game. dechambeau could be doing exactly the same. with brute strength too. doing up to three workouts a day during lockdown. he hits it miles. just to illustrate how he's added distance to his game. backin back in 2017 hitting it around about 300 yards. now in 2020, he is leading the pga tour. three hunted 23 yards he is hitting it off the tea and in the tournament he won yesterday — he averaged over 350 yards. the stats were mind blowing. stroke gained off the tee and on the green — he was the best —
so he's not all about power. although he was the longest driver and hit get this 43 drives over 320 yards. it is absolutely staggering. that's like little we've ever seen in the game before. he's driving it over doglegs. par 55 are reached in two shots easily. so how does he do it? well we got the insight from fitness james thompson — who works with professional golfers. the move that he makes for the speed, he loads up great on the right side, squats down and then fully flips his body. you see the lower half kind of spins out which creates that slingshot. i think he has probably been able to do that move all the time. he has probably done that for years but not on the golf course the mass that you need, the stability you need to be able to hit that consistently, he said let's ta ke hit that consistently, he said let's take this golf swing and make it a weapon. it has blown people out of the water and if you think of what
he does, great mobility and strength. but i can't see him getting into doing it either. i cannot see how people will be competing with that. his wages out at the moment. if he gets that right, i can't see no one touching him for the —— right, i can't see no one touching him forthe —— his right, i can't see no one touching him for the —— his wage right, i can't see no one touching him forthe —— his wage is right, i can't see no one touching him for the —— his wage is out. there's always been this quest to hit the ball farther, and there will always be those that think it must be bad for the game. there's always been this quest to hit the ball farther, and there will always be those that think it must be bad for the game. it's dividing opinion. one the one hand — you take your flat cap off at his athleticism. 0n the other — is somebody smashing drives to reach parfours in one and carry the ball over difficult water hazards quite what golf was designed for? here's a few thoughts from some tour pros. byeong hun an...
colin montgomerie said... actually changing the ball so it doesn't go as far. he finishes offences... —— finishes off saying... what does the man himself had to say? he has won his seventh pga tort. he plans are getting stronger. i'm going to be going to denver tomorrow, during some brain training self to see how much younger i can get before come back to memorial. i am going. i am full sail going as ha rd am going. i am full sail going as hard asi am going. i am full sail going as
hard as i can get as strong and big asi hard as i can get as strong and big as i can. very ominous for the rest of the tour. and 0lly, former major winner reief goosen says we could be looking at the next tiger woods right here. high praise indeed. that's all from sportsday. we will have more throughout the evening. but for me and the rest of the team, good bye for now. 0lie foster with the support. the louvre museum in paris has opened its doors again for the first time since the start of the covid epidemic. strict health rules are in place, and you have to book online in advance — but for art—lovers it's
a long—awaited treat. hugh schofield reports. shut for three months for covid, the famous glass pyramid has opened again but the experience is not quite as before. masks are compulsory, you have to book a time slot, there are limits on numbers. what's not changed is the public appetite for art. translation: we thought people might not come because it is a closed space, but the louvre is an open space. we have large courtyards with statutes, 200,000 square metres of galleries. it's easy to take a stroll here. the tourists are still not back in france, so for now this is a treat mainly for parisians. a louvre with perhaps a fifth of its regular customers, making enjoyment of the treasures here, not a scramble but, as it should be, a pleasure. so for the next couple of months at least, a chance to see the mona lisa like you've never seen her before in scenes of relative tranquillity. if you've been before in normal times, you'll know exactly what i mean. and here's a painting with a certain resonance, napoleon visiting victims of another epidemic — the plague. the health rules in place keep
people moving mainly in the same direction, but because numbers are much lower than normal there's no regimentation. it's perfectly possible to stop and enjoy. today we have really, really... we have a chance. as soon as the louvre opened, the ticket, to buy the ticket, ijust got in and got my ticket for 10am and it's great. i've been enjoying a lot. it's a pleasure. how long will the new system last? no one knows, it depends on covid and also on money. the louvre's been losing millions. but if you are someone who is concerned about how crowds can ruin art, now‘s the time to go. hugh schofield, bbc news, paris. the uk may not be the obvious place to have driving events, but you could be enjoying when the summer.
these have been popping up two alternatives to indoor venues as this report shows. you would be forgiven for thinking this is your average would be forgiven for thinking this is your average car would be forgiven for thinking this is your average car part feeling out. it is a car park but no one needs to leave their vehicles. in fa ct, needs to leave their vehicles. in fact, they are here to watch a film. today, it is aladdin. each car is given a sound box and an allocated space. and instead of heading to the counter to get your popcorn and sweets, they come to you. hi. hello. why come here instead of your local cinema? three of us and his brother and sister and their families cinema? three of us and his brother and sister and theirfamilies in their own cars. it is an outing for us their own cars. it is an outing for us to spend time together and we would not be able to do this and eczema because it would be "don't talk" so we are together and it is new and different. what you think of the whole set of? you have the speaker in the car... it is amazing,
she did not understand how we could watch a movie in daytime but the whole set up is amazing and we already planned to come back again. these drive in cinemas are popping up these drive in cinemas are popping up all across the country and this weekend was the first weekend you could come and enjoy your favourite film from the comfort of your own car. but if you are happy to part with 80 quid or you are a lucky competition winner, you could be watching the film from the back of one of these with some bubbles and a box full of snacks. in order to keep his business running during the coronavirus pandemic, george would realise he had to make some changes. after 12 years of doing outdoor cinema, we have suddenly moved to driving because of the situation we found ourselves and which is that social distance cinema is the way forward right now and in your car is the safest way to do it we feel. forward right now and in your car is the safest way to do it we feelm seems really american, doesn't? this doesn't seem like a british thing to do. it is true, everyone imagines
that as the socha americana 19505 and greece. so we had that throwback with up—to—date technology. and greece. so we had that throwback with up-to-date technology. enjoying it and singing along, you have to to aladdin, don't you? and then from that huge screen all the way over here, it is crazy! you were singing along, weren't you? i was. you were too busy eating popcorn. it is hard too busy eating popcorn. it is hard to see in a bright day and cars in front of the way. will you be coming back? i would buy two. in shropshire, and almost 5urreal 5cene at this drive in concert. static ca i’s at this drive in concert. static ca r5 instead of at this drive in concert. static car5 instead of the usual dancing, singing, and sharing. between the vehicle5 though, there are some pockets of normality for some it is fun. it is notjust the audience finding things strange. it is
probably one of the greatest gigs i have done. we are used to up and up and down and going crazy but you had to work twice as high but i loved it, it is the new normal. as the uk so it, it is the new normal. as the uk so it comes out of lockdown, further concerts and events are being an as with social distancing at the forefront of organisers mind5. beverly knight is touring the country with a series of gates this summer. country with a series of gates this summer. when the opportunity arose to ta ke summer. when the opportunity arose to take part in white of life music and life performance being absolutely curtailed everywhere with no sign of anything coming back anytime soon, i thought i am going to ta ke anytime soon, i thought i am going to take the chance and to do this. money for my band, myself, and wants of other people who will be taking part. do you think this pandemic has reshaped the music industry? do you think it's going to change the music
industry forever? in order to 5urvive industry forever? in order to survive the music industry, theatre, all aspects of life performance have to adapt or wither. and that is terrifying because the very nature of life performance is that you cannot easily socially distance. i don't know how we move forward but we have to find a way for some it's a dilemma faced by so many acro55 the entertainment industry with no clear a nswer5 the entertainment industry with no clear answers yet. one thing that is certain, the performances we do see this summer are going to look and feel like no other. it helps if you have a half decent weather for a drive it helps if you have a half decent weatherfor a drive in. now it's time for a look at the weather with chris fawkes. through the afternoon we had quite a lot of showers to the north and east
