    How much do we think it cost Bryson for these irons? Did he get them completely free due to being a good player? It almost sounds about 10K if you or I wanted these made by David. What do you think? I’m constantly looking into the cost of things. Take a player like Jordan Speith or another Junior that was top of their flights throughout their life – they took lessons from a top 100 teacher their entire lives. At 500/hour taking lessons 3 times a week and many like Jordon spent a lot more time than that – I’d say their parents spent about 20K on golf lessons before the kid hit his 18th birthday. See: Jordan, Cantlay, Bryson, etc al.
    I’m a father and love the game. I feel that I had enough talent to make it but at what cost? Many of their parents had to be super rich.

    Wow the amount stuff Edel put into making Bryson’s iron is mind blowing.

    It seens his excitement level is bit lower in this video vs. other videos. Maybe it’s just me, but all the work, money, R&D, and time and every absolutely every small detail that went into building this ultimate set to just have Bryson leave and and go to Cobra has to be disheartening. Being such a super small company and put that effort into something and not really get all the “pay off” from all the work and then have a major OEM basically take your design and rehash it and make millions off it has to be heartbreaking. It’s crazy the precision that went into that set.

    Before this series I really had zero interest in Edel clubs but now I’m very interested in their wedges (suppose that’s the point of the series though, but it worked 🙂 ).

      Mark Crossfield’s review of them has me convinced they’re the best choice for single length. Pricey but for good reason.

      Yeah but Bryson may have paid for those irons and the free marketing MUST be worth it. I can agree with your statement but business is business. Either way Edel makes some amazing gear and am a huge fan.

Published

on

Our GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day was started by member devey07 who posted photos of red-white-and-blue Bettinardi Ryder Cup putters with the Paris skyline on the back cavity. On the hosels, you’d think there would be names of the 12 players on the USA team… but that’s not the case.

Jackson? Rice? Who? At the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris, there’s a celebrity match being played with players such as Samuel L. Jackson, Condoleezza Rice , Michael Phelps and more. See the full list of names here.

And some head covers…

Dustin Johnson decided to putt cross-handed mid-tournament at East Lake

Published

on

Dustin Johnson made a weekend charge at the Tour Championship, and it was almost good enough for him to capture the FedEx Cup title (and with it the $10 million jackpot). Although he fell short, the revival gave him a third-place finish at the season finale, after he fired back to back rounds of 67 at East Lake. The most interesting part about his weekend performance? Well, during the sixth hole on Saturday, Johnson decided to putt for the rest of the event cross-handed.

Speaking to the media after the event, Johnson elaborated a little more on the decision (transcript from ASAP Sports)

So how did Johnson perform with the cross-handed technique? Well, the American gained strokes over the field on the greens on both days over the weekend. For the two days of action, Johnson gained 0.63 strokes over the field with the flatstick, which incidentally was more than he managed over the opening two days in Atlanta. However, a missed birdie chance from inside six feet on the 18th hole on Sunday evening doomed his chances of taking home the FedEx Cup.

Johnson is no stranger to making impulsive changes on the golf course. Recently at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Johnson switched his TaylorMade Spider Tour mid-tournament in favor of the Spider-Mini, despite winning the RBC Canadian Open the week previously with the Spider Tour. While earlier in the year, Johnson decided to implement the AimPoint putting technique. A change which didn’t last long, after instructor Butch Harmon told him to stop as he had no idea what he was doing.

With just four days until the Ryder Cup begins, how comfortable do U.S. fans feel about Johnson deciding to putt cross-handed for the biennial event?
