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.

Phil Mickelson teases “The Match” Part 2

Published

on

With sports around the world currently at a standstill because of COVID-19, sports fans have been clamoring for any type of live-action. According to Phil Mickelson and a recent tweet he replied to, we could be seeing some live golf sooner than you might think.

We can take it for what it is right now—pure speculation, but Phil is known as a showman, and more often than not willing to back up some of his most interesting claims.

He even replied to a followup with “I don’t tease, I’m kinda a sure thing.” We will forgive the obvious grammatical errors since it was on Twitter and cross our fingers that if anyone could figure out a way to produce some live mic’d up golf its Phil.

My only hope is that after staff and production expenses are taken care of, there is a large charitable element to what could potentially be the Match Part II.
