WATCH: Bryson DeChambeau geeks out over original Stimpmeter

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau is a unique individual, and we love him for it. And while stories of the SMU alum and physics major’s singular approach to the game have been written ad nauseam in recent months (have you heard he plays single length irons!), this was cool to see: DeChambeau getting a look at the original Stimpmeter and geeking out accordingly.

Credit to PGATour.com’s D.J. Piehowski for the spot.

DeChambeau, who opened with a 1-over-par 71, also indicated, seemingly, that when he was approached with the device at the start of the video, he was “calculating the deviation in the x-direction.” You’ll have to watch the clip to see what that heck he’s talking about on that front, but it sounds interesting. 

Never change, Bryson.

Fun fact: The Stimpmeter was invented 80 years ago, and it traces its origins to Oakmont. Edward S. Stimpson, captain of the Harvard golf team and Massachusetts state amateur champ, produced a prototype of his device after heading about how Gene Sarazen putted a ball off the green at Oakmont into the bunker, victim of the wildly inconsistent green speeds that were common at the time.

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins

Published

on

With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.
