Apparently Matt Kuchar actually does get angry

Published

on

Matt Kuchar, definition of happy-go-lucky, smiling assassin on the golf course, quintessential jolly dad, gets mad.

You heard this earth-shattering revelation here first. Well, actually, Kuch told Golf.com’s Ryan Assaletta that he indeed has experienced the emotion of anger. And further, Kuchar has gotten mad…on the golf course!

RA: Do you ever get mad?

MK: “I certainly do. I’ve got a 10-year-old and an eight-year-old boy. My 10-year-old has a temper with sports. If he loses, he’s unhappy. But I cut him a bit of slack. I was that way as a kid, as well. I used to throw racquets on the tennis court; I used to throw clubs on the golf course. And I learned my lesson. My parents would take away my tennis racquet for a week, take away my golf clubs for a week, and I didn’t like those weeks very much. I learned my lesson pretty quickly — and learned ways around it.”

Unbelievable. How does he do it?

“I think I’m blessed with a makeup that tries to find enjoyment in whatever the situation is. You know that saying, “Life’s too short not to have a good time”? I’m going to find out how to have a good time, particularly on the golf course.”

Find a way to have a good time? What is this sorcery? It’s one thing to say you’re going to have a good time on the golf course, but for most of us, that goes up in smoke after the first three-whack or duffed pitch shot. Credit to Kuchar for being able to actually do it.

In some sense, that’s an achievement greater than winning a major, which Kuch hasn’t done. Does that make you mad, Matt?

Probably not.

But really, we could all learn something from Kuchar. GolfWRXers, did you ever play with someone who smiled while he crushed you on the golf course and picked your pockets? Let us know.

    Great story! Love Kuchar. Golf is an ‘enjoyable’ escape from reality and why the hell wouldn’t you laugh and have fun, beats the heck out of brow beating yourself.

GolfWRX Classifieds Spotlight (06/02/20): T.P. Mills, Toulon, Odyssey

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member Backtee72 – Custom Toulon Garage Putter

Sean Toulon quickly established himself in the putter industry with the introduction of Toulon golf just a few years ago. It was soon absorbed into the Odyssey brand and the rest is history. This Toulon Garage is full custom—flame finish and flow neck—and if you are looking for a new wand, this could be the one.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Toulon Garage Putter

Member Puma74 – Handmade TP Mills

On the Mount Rushmore of putter makers, T.P. Mills is one of the faces you will find. Known for soft lines and beautiful custom putters this one here is a perfect example of his craftsmanship. This kind of piece doesn’t come cheap, but when you buy a Mills putter, you have the knowledge you are buying a piece of art.

Member Rig14Port – Odyssey Stroke Lab Black

Well…I guess this officially became an all putter piece today! Here is a brand-new-in-plastic Stroke Lab Black at a less-than-new price—sounds like a deal to me! This is why it’s important to always keep an eye on the GolfWRX Classifieds page, because you never know what you’re going to find!

The DailyWRX (6/2/2020): What your playing partners are really saying, the power of the golf foursome, Golf U

Published

Top of the week, and I’m already counting the minutes til the weekend arrives. Nonetheless, here is what’s buzzing on IG and Twitter.

How…

Do you see into my mind?

This is the truest thing ever…

If I like you on the course, I will like you in the streets…hell, you can watch my kids…I’ll help you move. That kind of stuff.

It’s about time…

Maybe some good actually will come out of the Corona…

My 3-year-old…

…can’t hit it like this kid, but he does know all the characters in “Paw Patrol”…so there’s that.

I can’t…

I love this guy….I guess I’ll save my “I was 3 under after 13 and shot 76” speech.

DM @johnny_wunder for things
