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…

      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.

Brooks Koepka expresses his frustration over J.B. Holmes’ slow play at The Open

Published

on

Brooks Koepka began 2019 by calling out golf’s authorities for their lack of action over the slow play issue surrounding the game, and on Sunday at the Open Championship, the 29-year-old appeared visibly agitated over the speed of playing partner J.B. Holmes.

The two men teed off at 1.37 PM local time in the final round, and from their opening tee shots of the day, which Holmes would take significantly longer to play than his compatriot, it appeared the two could be in for an uncomfortable day with each other.

For the most part during Sunday’s final round, on the course, Koepka was to keep whatever frustrations which were bubbling under the surface to himself.

However, coming off the 12th green, the four-time major champ was seen staring at a rules official while motioning to his imaginary wristwatch, and on another occasion, the American looked less than impressed as his playing partner went through his deliberate putting routine.

Following their round, the 29-year-old was quick to point out that Holmes is far from being the only slow player on Tour, but explained what his biggest gripe was with the Kentuckian on Sunday at Royal Portrush – his inability to prepare when it wasn’t his turn.

“There are a lot of slow guys out here, that’s not the first time I’ve done it, especially when you’ve got a walking official with you. I’m ready to go most of the time.

That’s what I don’t understand when it’s your turn to hit, your glove is not on, then you start thinking about it, that’s where the problem lies. It’s not that he takes that long. He doesn’t do anything until his turn. That’s the frustrating part. But he’s not the only one that does it out here.”

Holmes’ nightmare performance didn’t help his pace of play as he struggled mightily in the harsh conditions during Sunday’s final round. The 37-year-old shot an 87 – 16 over par to move from third place at the start of the day to fourth last on six over.

Koepka had some sympathy for Holmes’ struggles in the wind and rain in Northern Ireland, but despite this, the Florida native made it clear that he still found the pace at times too slow.

“He had a rough day, but JB is a slow player. We were on pace for 13 holes, but if I’m in the group we’re going to be on pace no matter what. But there were some times where I thought it was slow.”

Koepka’s final round of 74 secured a T4 finish for the four-time major champ to complete an exceptional year at the major tournaments which included a win at the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in May.
