Adam Scott to use a local caddie at Shinnecock. Brilliant or meh?

Published

on

Adam Scott has parted ways with David Clark, his caddie for the past 18 months. His replacement? A local caddie from Shinnecock Lenny Bummolo.

Clark was on the bag for Scott’s U.S. Open sectional qualifying in Ohio, Monday, but the Australian has given Clarke the boot, saying in part, “Sometimes, I have to make selfish decisions.”

While it has to be assumed Bummolo will only caddie for Scott at this week’s U.S. Open, it also has to be mentioned that he has done an impressive job in that capacity already.

According to the Associated Press, Bummolo caddied for Adam Scott when he played Shinnecock in 2013. How’d it go? Well, all Scott did was set the then course record from the championship tees: 63.

“Lenny has been here for so long. He knows the course so well, and the greens,” Scott said. “I really think it’s a valuable move here this week for me stand there hit it where he says. He’s going to be right more times than me.”

Scott also returned to working with coach Brad Malone (the pair worked together from 2009 to 2016).

Additionally, the world No. 64 recently changed drivers, returning to a 2010 Titleist 910D3, as well as tinkering with his putter. To that end, Scott was seen at Shinnecock with a conventional length putter, Monday, but reportedly isn’t planning on using it in competition.

What do you think, GolfWRX members? Brilliance? Madness Probably won’t make a difference either way?

    Hire them fire them got to love the life of pro golf. Not so much the caddie it’s always someone else’s fault.

    Your 2013 Masters Champ with “the best swing in golf” is another few months away from complete irrelevance. Life comes at you fast!

      Seriously… Next, we’re gonna hear about player A ‘throwing shade’ at player B, prompting player B to ‘clap back’ at player A.

      No need to be sexist… I mean sure Ben is a millennial golf writer, who writes with the typical nu-media, buzzfeed style. But “meh” was popularized by The Simpsons, so it would also be apt to call him a 13 year old boy. Meh was a big word for us boys when we were 13!

Johnny Miller returns to the airwaves on Real Golf Talk, Callaway’s new podcast

Published

on

Johnny Miller is back sharing his opinions on the game on Callaway’s new podcast: Real Golf Talk, which aired its first episode today (listen here on Soundcloud).

The longtime NBC golf announcer retired from broadcasting earlier this year, but Miller now features alongside avid golfer and television host Chris Harrison on the podcast, which will air six episodes in 2019 and eight in future seasons.

Speaking on the opportunity to work alongside Johnny Miller on the podcast, co-host Chris Harrison stated

“Johnny Miller was a legend on the course and in the TV booth there was no equal. I know he’s got more to say on the world of golf and the world in general. There’s no chance I’m missing the opportunity to sit next to him and hear what he has to say.”

Miller (who, sidebar, will play all Callaway products) said this

“I am proud be returning to Callaway and working with the company’s incredible team on some exciting new projects. I’ve had so many great experiences with the company, from playing their equipment to working with Mr. Callaway and so many amazing people over the years. It feels like a homecoming for me, and I think golf fans will really enjoy what we have coming, starting with our new Real Golf Talk podcast.”

Real Golf Talk with Johnny Miller is a part of the Callaway Podcast Network and is available on Apple, Spotify, and Soundcloud.
