Why do you cringe? He's not wrong, he has a mechanical engineer degree and apparently his scientific approach to the game is working, thus the Top 5 in the world ranking.

Not you toast, but people in general should take a more analytical approach to the game, no equations and schidt, but just think more about the physics of what the ball does or doesn't do - and how that's accomplished. Golfers skill level would improve if they would get away from the "me hit ball, me chase ball" mentality and think more about "why did it just slice 80 yards to the right? Let me try the opposite and hook it 80 yards then find the middle ground among the two"

(disclaimer - have a ME degree as well, so Shambo speaks my language. And Cobra and Puma make the best gear.)

I question, overall, how much all of his scientific applications have helped him really.

Guy is just crazy talented and a hard worker. He'd be great at golf if he never finished high school.

But, I do think that all of his analysis are key "mental rituals" that guide him.

Kind of like how lots of athletes are very superstitious.

Michael Jordan wore the same pair of NC shorts under his NBA team shorts on games day. BD reads Pythagoras before tournaments ; )

He's a sharp guy, no question. And, he likes to play that up. However, there's a fine-line between being a unique individual that sees things differently and becoming a caricature.

I like that he does things his own way. I think his intelligence and analytical approach is way overblown though but he plays along.

I like him.  He sticks to his convictions.  The SL iron phenomenon is largely due to him, because it works for his game.  Whether SL clubs work for others depends on their skill set and adaptability, but at least they are a viable option.

Winning has a tendency to widen that line. See O'Grady, Mac for the other side of the line.

Sigh. Rickie needs to quit helping people with their mortgages and insurance and win golf tournaments. Among golfers younger than 35, he may not even be in the Top 10 any more.
swing is irrelevant, score is everything

just say NO.... to practice swings

I find him hard to watch.  He looks stiff and awkward when he swings.  but I have said the same about Jordan Spieth.

They both do a great job of getting the ball in the hole.  I just don't enjoy watching them do it.

I like him, he's got fire when he plays.  Sometimes he gets a little bent out of shape (e.g. the club throwing incident on the range after a bad round), but I'm sure he will get that figured out in time.  People keep saying on WRX that he's "showing off" how smart he is in interviews, but just because someone uses words you don't understand doesn't mean they are showing off.  The entire point of "science" as a field is to understand things that aren't obviously intuitive, and I think we can all agree that golf is not intuitive at all.

I think his action will become more orthodox as he gets older - in a similar way to how Jim Furyk and Bubba have developed.


I'm not entirely convinced with the genius tag. After all, his side-saddle putting experiment failed.
Like him or hate him, he's hugely talented.

It sure ain't pretty but it is repeatable and a simple move he has.  I like his putting stroke a lot.  Not sure I want to implement but I see what he has done with it.

Hes won 4 times in his last 12 starts. Already has more wins than rickie fowler whos been on tour for a decade. he has a method he makes work and i get that alot of people dislike his "personality" but dont let it cloud your judgement.Guy has game and works extremely hard. What hes doing is bordering on elite level. Can he maintain it? who knows but he makes alot of birdies and can go low at any time.

I've just become one finally.  I always admired his play but thought he came off like a bit of a prat.  I was wrong.  He's just a little different but he's totally being himself.  Now that he's winning, the guy is so genuinely happy and stoked with his own play that it's overflowing.  I never saw a guy so pleased with himself....in a good way.  I love to see that...much more than ho-hum-another-usopen-brooks-koepke like he's so bored with it.  Of course, he isn't but I think he wants to be too cool, too badly.  Bryson reminds me of a happy little kid.

Of course it does. How else are you to get close to him?

can't wait for him to win a major.  and he def. will win at least one.

He'll win the PGA, and like Dufner, Bradley,  DL3, Azinger, and Thomas, will be the only one, lol...

I call the PGA the Curse of the Golf Mummy, lol....

I actually think the US Open or The Masters are the best chances for him.

That's a great take. When you listen to him talk about the game, you can hear the genuine enjoyment.

It's an attitude that will hopefully take him far and that a lot of amateurs could benefit from.

I'm a big fan. I know he gets a bad rap sometimes but not sure if it's just people's perception of him or that he treats people the wrong way. If it's not the latter, than I'll continue to be his fan. I love smart. Smart is always good in my book.

CA central valley represent...BAD is a stud and always has been

Also a Ricky fan, though.  One of the most dominant ATHLETES - regardless of sport - in the history of CA high school athletics.

I like his swing, seems to get perfectly on plane quite consistently and a nice rhythm to it. Putting looks a bit awkward but is really working for him at the minute and at least he's given up the side saddle experiment.
