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.

Thank you all that participated in our giveaway!!! Now onto the exciting stuff; UST Mamiya and I have partnered to create a limited run of Driver/Fairway shafts with 100% of the proceeds going to Susan G Komen for Breast Cancer Research. Shafts are $150 each and are available in either 7F5, 6F5, or 6F4 (F5 is X-stiff and F4 is stiff). DM me to order. 1 in 8 women are affected by Breast Cancer. My mother being one of them was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer when I was in 8th grade, she fought for 11 years eventually losing that battle in 2016, right around the time I picked up golf. When she was originally diagnosed I had no idea what the severity was but everyday she battled and fought and still managed to attend every extra curricular activity and school event all the way through my college career. She never missed a baseball game scheduling chemo around my high school and college schedule, driving four hours up to Pennsylvania and back to watch my ass sit in the bullpen and sometimes pitch. She was the epitome of tough and was the best role model, boss, and friend I could ask for. I really wish she could meet the friends that I have made through this golf community and where this game has taken me in the past few years. I miss you every day.???????? • • • • • #golf #golfer #golfingaround #instagolf #golfdigest #swooshlife #golfgear #trendygolf #alwaysbegolfing #pinkribbon #survivor #whyilovethisgame #golfaddict #golfislife #golfbabes #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerawarenessmonth #golfswing #golfvideo #pga #golfclub #cancersucks #thinkpink #golfcourse #golfwrx #golfaddict #Swooshlife #golfvibes #golfreviews #golfswag #golfchannel

Stephen Curry and Callaway Golf announce multi-year partnership with a focus on philanthropic and game-expanding initiatives

Published

on

Stephen Curry and Callaway Golf announced on Monday a new multi-year partnership which will see the two combine on philanthropic and game-expanding endeavors

Through the partnership, various initiatives will be implemented which the NBA star will undertake with a focus on expanding the game by making it more accessible to underserved and underrepresented youth.

Speaking on the partnership, Curry stated

“I am beyond excited for the opportunity to work with Callaway Golf. Their ability to think outside the box on how we can collectively grow the game of golf is second to none. I can’t wait to begin rolling out some of our ideas to make golf more accessible to boys and girls around the world.”

Recently, the 31-year-old helped Howard University launch their first-ever Division 1 Golf Program, with a pledge to fund the university’s men’s and women’s programs for the next six years. Subsequently, Callaway announced that they would be the official golf equipment provider for the program.

Curry is currently also the Executive Producer for the new ABC mini-golf show, “Holey Moley,” and according to Callaway, the new partnership will also feature co-produced original content in the spirit of Curry’s endeavors in golf.

Chip Brewer, President & CEO, Callaway Golf Company, stated on the partnership that

“We’ve found an incredibly like-minded partner in Stephen. His love of golf is something we at Callaway immediately connected with. And over time we realized we shared much more than that: a vision to create opportunities for access to the sport for people that might not have it. With our support, Stephen is uniquely positioned to create meaningful experiences in golf.”
