Brandel Chamblee is really going to try to qualify for the Senior Open. Does he have a chance?



Could we be treated to the ultimate in Brandel Chamblee? A Being John Malkovich-type situation in which Chamblee analyzes Chamblee’s performance in a tournament?

We’re a step closer to that situation, as Chamblee doubled down on his pledge to try his hand at qualifying for the Senior Open Championship at St. Andrews.

Chamblee told Golf Channel’s Will Gray that he’ll compete in the 18-hole qualifier, July 23.

“My game’s pretty good. When I’ve played, I’ve played some really good golf,” Chamblee said. “I’m looking forward to it for a lot of different reasons. I want to try to get back into competitive golf, and I would love to have another week at St. Andrews.”

He’s going to take a lap around the Old Course next week with his wife, “Morning Drive” host Bailey Mosier.

Mosier, it turns out, might be Chamblee’s looper.

“It’s kind of up to her, really. But if she really wants to caddie, she can certainly do it,” Chamblee said. “But just imagine the winds blowing 30 mph, imagine it raining, imagine it being cold. You’ve got rain suits and umbrellas and towels, you know, and it’s really not that much fun.”

The Golf Channel analyst missed the cut at the Open at St. Andrews in 1995. What do you think the odds are he does so again, should he qualify? Let us know!

    He not only qualified, he won his qualifier (actually it was a 3 way tie for first) with a 69! Honestly, I didn’t think the guy had
    a chance.

    He will never qualify. He drops his head way too much on the downswing.

    He just wants to go to Scotland so he can blow another goat.

    I hope Chamblee, the dotted son of Thurston Howell III qualifies so he can miss the cut by a wide margin.

    More power to him. Golf Channel should get Tiger Woods to analyze his performance.

    I guess we’ll know for sure in 19 days…

    I can think of a dozen or more tour players who should be called up to “analyze” Brandel’s play, should he make it past Q.

    He better qualify or a credibility issue will come to the forefront that not even Golf Channel can hide.

      The fact is he’s better than roughly 99.8% of all golfers. And can probably outscore any of his fellow hosts on the Golf Channel. I’d still give him credit as being an expert. Even though he’s cringe-worthy at times.

    I’ll be rooting for him for the simple fact I wanna see bailey mosier hold a wood.

Check out these limited-edition Ryder Cup Adidas Tour360 shoes



Here are GolfWRX, we love our Ryder Cup swag. Gianni brought you news of the U.S. squad’s apparel and some goodies from Puma last week. Today, we have more Ryder Cup-related gear news for fans of golf’s most storied team competition: Adidas is launching a limited edition Tour360 to commemorate the showdown at Le Golf National.

Available Sept. 24, the shoes draw their inspiration from the famed Ryder Cup trophy. The 10-cleated TPU outsole is designed to look like the wood grain finish at the trophy’s base, and the TPU top plate is shiny and gold like the trophy itself.

While the exterior of the shoe is the same whether your support the United States or Europe, the fortunate souls who snag a pair of the limited-edition shoes will be able to choose their preferred sockliner. One features the American flag and the final scores from every Ryder Cup since 1979, the other, the European flag.

“We know how much the Ryder Cup means to fans all over the world,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “It’s the most competitive event in golf, and brings out a level of emotion that you don’t normally see in the sport. Possession of the Ryder Cup trophy is what both of these teams and fans are after, so we looked to it for inspiration.”

The shoes (MSRP $220) will come with a limited-edition shoe bag and will only available online at

Rope hat fans, rejoice: Titleist’s Tour Rope Flat Bill is here



The rope hat is having something of a moment, isn’t it? As the mesh trucker fades to the periphery and the outer recesses of hipsterdom where it belongs, the good old-fashioned cotton rope snapback is stepping up to fill the void in vintage-inspired headwear.

Titleist is getting into the rope hat game with its Tour Rope Flat Bill, worn perhaps most prominently by Cameron Smith recently, but seen adorning the heads of Adam Scott, Jason Kokrak, and Rafa Cabrera Bello.

Check ’em out.

The Tour Rope Flat Bill is available on Titleist’s website for $30 now in black/white, navy/white, and white/hunter green colorways.
