Absolutely LOVE that he won another PGA TOUR event... especially one as prestigious as The Memorial doing his own thing.  It's gotta be tough using the One Length irons when no one else is doing it.  The PGA TOUR has always been a copy-cat league in the fact that when someone seems to be doing well a lot of the players follow suit.  Most of the time its just a hot new low spin driver shaft or something that's really not a huge deal.  BUT... being the only guy out there using this "One Length" iron set and sticking to it.... and WINNING.... is SO COOL.

I just love that he believed in himself and what he was doing AND got it done.

Congrats to Bryson on his second PGA TOUR win!!!  Of course winning the John Deere is awesome but winning a tournament at Jack's place has got to special for the young man.

In 2018 he's played in 16 events and made 14 cuts... 88% is not too shabby.  He's currently 4th in the FedEx Cup Standings and 4th in the PGA TOUR's Official Money Leaders standings with $4,194,398.  For his career he has made right at $6.5M... not too bad for a 24 year old that nobody thought would make it using this crazy equipment.

Amen to that. Hilarious thinking this setup could get him anywhere.

Yes, he should stop doing what works for him, and instead do what some LPGA Tour hack does. Brilliant.....

F8 driver and 5 wood in play...

LTD is the 3 wood, which we all know is the most difficult club to replace in your bag sometimes.

Nice win for Bryson, love everything about his game.  Wish I could get fit for some SL irons, but no fitters in my area carry Cobra stuff.

I wonder when he made the move from Modus 130 X shafts to TT X7 shafts in his irons.. This is a pretty drastic change.. X7 is the lowest spinning lowest launching steel iron shaft that i know of.  Interesting to say the least

Single length but what length? and are the wedges the same as the other irons? The fairway metals are at industry standard not some single length specials. And all those announcers claiming "no wrist c0ck" are missing the loading at the change of direction at the top. How about "delayed" wrist c0ck, anyone remember Payne Stewart?
For those without the brand name fetish, clubmakers are selling single length sets starting in the mid $200s.

All his irons and wedges are same length thru 4 iron @ 37.5". He has two utility irons that are same length but different length @ 43". Rest of bag is normal.

Probably one of funniest and biased posts ever.
You could have written 'as Bryson is one hell of a golfer, maybe his weird bag could benefit a lot of golfers who struggle with conventional sets."

It makes sense for the shorter irons and wedges because with the OL irons you really get some moon balls. I wonder if his longer irons are soft stepped because the opposite is true for them - my 4 iron OL is a low launcher.

I was curious if he's still one length with his wedges.

Whatever the case, he's absolutely on fire. Wish the Ryder Cup started this week.

All his wedges and irons are same length besides his two utility irons.

He has changed his wedges since that video. I think he's still using OL wedges - but every time I see him chip, they don't appear to be OL.

Well, I think Bryson will do just fine it appears.  Long run...who knows, but that is true of anyone.  Look at Furyk...I think he has had a nice career.  Swings and equipment are just that...and so individualistic. Tiger kept changing his swing and it produced wins and injury.  I think Bryson's swing is a healthy swing.  Few moving parts and doesn't appear to strain the back, etc.

I've been a single plane golfer since I first picked up a club 50 years ago. I've been playing single length Sterling irons for the last 3 years and I will never go back to "conventional" irons! Sterling solves the gapping problems in a different (and I feel a better) way than Cobra but the benefits are the same. One ball position, one swing and much more consistency. I'm 64 with a really bad back but my single length irons and single plane swing put less stress on my low back. I can't go at the ball as hard as I once could but I can still hit my 5 iron with it's 8 iron length shaft 180 yards. Call it "weird" but I say if it works do it!

Wrong, wrong and wrong again....   The majority of conventional style based swing training, club fitting and all the bells and whistles that go with it will produce good golfers I agree, but it's the tinkerers and the unconventional with their relentless persiut in finding what works for THEM , either by building on their natural swing or finding equipment that doesn't strike the norm or even developing unusual money shots that only they can pull off that will rise above the grey masses.
