Bryson DeChambeau went full Golf Scientist in professing his love for “The Golfing Machine”

Published

on

Published more than 30 years ago, Homer Kelley’s “The Golfing Machine” remains a golf swing bible for some, far too esoteric for others, and a weapon of mass destruction for others still.

Bryson DeChambeau, as we know, is firmly in camp No. 1. The former SMU physics major was always a fertile ground for Kelley’s scientific, geometric prose.

PGATour.com’s resident equipment writer, Jonathan Wall, spotted this DeChambeauian gem from a recent press conference in which some unidentified scribe served the Golf Scientist a heaping portion of red meat…or should we say, cake.

May he never change! While we at GolfWRX have been down with DeChambeau since the days of his single length Edel irons, even if you aren’t a fan, how can you not find the man entertaining?

    Got “The Golfing Machine” four years ago – so poorly edited it was unreadable and I was angry someone had the nerve to republish it. That said, good for Bryson carving out his own path.

      Homer Kelley’s TGM is the sign of a disturbed mind… a low level mind that fraudulently claims to be ‘scientific’. Homer was incompetent scientifically but gullible golfers want to believe the secret is in TGM because “.. it’s so complicated..”. So pa thetic…

    Homer worked as a lowly clerk at Boeing, If TGM was an instruction manual for an aircraft, it would crash on takeoff! The GSED (Golf Stroke Engineer Doctor) instructors cannot explain Chapter 2 which has all of Homer’s “scientific” confusion. “Doctorate” degree instructors must be able to explain everything and not say it’s too complicated. It’a a scam.

    Love how peculiar Bryson is but in all honesty, nobody is using this “single/one plane” swing on Tour except him and Bryson does not win on Tour either… so the public has difficulties to follow or support him in my humble opinion…

      He has already won…

      12th on tour in strokes gained tee to green. Not even June and he’s put $2.5mill in the bank. SP swing works for him, how does your swing work for you?

    Lol that’s why he falls apart when his golf machine swing isn’t working. Cant adapt or make changes on the fly and just get it around. Too reliant on all this GM stuff

      Which golfer doesn’t fall apart when his swing isn’t working? Ever read Jack Nicklaus’s “My Story”? He mentions several times in his career he’s lost his swing or certain aspects to his game. It happens to the best I’m not sure why Bryson should be an exception.

    Bryson is not a SMU graduaate with a Physics degree, If had he would have concluded that Homer’s TGM is not based on scientific physics. In fact TGM is trash written by somebody who worked at Boeing as a drafting room librarian. Homer was not an engineer and TGM has an error on every page.

      Furthermore, Bryson’s single length/lie clubs and his palm grip contradicts Homer’s TGM. So why is he panning failing TGM?

    I’m a big fan of Bryson DeChambeau. He’s doing it his way.

David Ortiz shares his side of the story from his Mayakoba controversy with Matt Kuchar

Published

on

Matt Kuchar returns to the site of his 2018 Mayakoba victory this week—a week which proved extremely damaging to the 41-year-old’s public persona.

The result of last year’s win was overshadowed after Kuchar paid his stand-in caddie, David Ortiz, $5,000 for helping him to his eighth PGA Tour win and the $1.3 million prize at Mayakoba. After a messy, publicised back and forth, Kuchar eventually paid Ortiz $50,000, and over the weekend the Mexican caddie revealed his side of the story.

Speaking to the New York Post, Ortiz revealed that he carries no animosity towards Kuchar following the incident, stating

“Kuchar is a good person. I’m not angry. Everything is good. Not paying was not good. But I have no anger.”

Per the report, before the event, Kuchar’s deal with Ortiz was that he would pay the stand-in caddie $1,000 for the Tuesday practice round, $1,000 for the Wednesday pro-am and $3,000 for the tournament rounds (cut made, or no cut made).

However, Ortiz then requested 10 percent should Kuchar go on to win, to which the 41-year-old responded “Of course,” though Ortiz claims, “it felt like he was just looking at me like I’m this little guy.’’

Kuchar’s payment of $5,000 did not equal one percent of his winnings and led to plenty of vocal critics amongst golf fans and pundits alike.

It was then director of golf at El Camaleon, David Lopez, who got involved on Ortiz’ behalf. Lopez contacted Kuchar’s agent, Mark Steinberg, who curtly blew off Lopez’ request that Ortiz’ payment be increased, responding to his email saying “No. What we paid you is fair.”

Following Kuchar’s comments that, “For a guy who makes $200 a day, a $5,000 week is a really big week”, Lopez once again emailed Steinberg stating that the issue had now become a racial one, and per the report, two days later, Ortiz had been sent an extra $45,000.

All’s well that ends well for Ortiz, who explained to the Post how important the $50,000 is to him.

“Fifty thousand dollars, for me, is big. It’s everything to me and not much to (Kuchar). The $50,000 I needed for my business and to fix my kitchen and bathroom at home and to buy a new cell phone.”
