Bryson DeChambeau gaming single-length Cobra irons



No. 1 amateur in the world and reigning U.S. Amateur Champion Bryson DeChambeau, who has been gaming a set of single length Edel irons (see those clubs here), was spotted with a same-length set of Cobra King Forged MB irons for the first time at the 19th annual Georgia Cup on Tuesday, according to Golfweek’s David Dusek.

DeChambeau is in the field for the Masters next week (thanks to the U.S. Am win), and reportedly plans to turn pro following the competition. Much has been made of his recent West Coast trip to visit OEMs, with the smart money betting he’d sign with Cobra.

This would seem to confirm that speculation, and it’s interesting as well that the SMU star is putting new irons in play a week before the Masters.

According to Dusek: the irons are “Cobra King Forged MB irons (3, 5-PW, with KBS C-Taper Lite 115 X shafts) are all 37.5 inches long, the same length as a standard 6-iron. Each head weighs 280 grams and has a lie angle of 73.5 degrees.”

Cobra’s Tour rep, Ben Schomin, personally oversaw the set’s construction. Each iron was bent 10 to 12 degrees more upright to DeChambeau’s specs. The soles were ground to his preference, and tungsten plugs were added to the toes of several of the irons. DeChambeau reportedly had a set of King Forged CB irons made to the same specifications as the MBs.

“It took our machinist a day to (add the tungsten weight to) each 3-iron,” Schomin said. “One to do the CB (3-iron) and one day to do the MB (3-iron). And then three more solid days to complete the other irons.”

In the wedge department, DeChambeau is gaming Cobra Tour Trusty 50-, 55- and 60-degree wedges with KBS High-Rev 130 shafts.

And not that it’s a referendum on the new clubs, but DeChambeau lost his Georgia Cup match 4&3 to British Amateur champion, Romain Langasque.

    Mde a set myself about 1985. Found out that length loss more of a problem than loft loss. Gave up on ’em after 2 tournament rounds

      I think it’s called sarcasm. Some get it, some don’t.

    I love all the this is fake talk on here…a simple google search shows a story published the day before this one…research people. It all makes sense when you look at his Edel irons and all the lie angles of them. A single length set is very different than the traditional staggered set. At times I really questions people on here and how much they really pay attention to whats going on before they just jump on here and start leaving messages that bash anyone not doing what they do.

    He is getting ready to turn Pro, Cobra is probably his new sponsor. I think it is real, those spec’s are like the Edel irons he plays.

    I love how everyone thinks this is an April fools joke post when in fact it is completely factual.

    Got to be a joke…each iron bent 10-12* up!!!!

      Have you actually done any research on single length irons?

        That’s not due to the single length concept, it his single plane swing.

    I’m glad I caught this a day late!

    Good one.

    If this is real, it’s weakly written. If it’s fake, it’s a crappy jab at Cobra. Either way, more sub-par stuff.

    He also dropped his putter and started using his hybrid to putt. When asked why he only wanted to carry 13 clubs, he replied, “I like to live dangerously.”

    Say it ain’t so Bryson DeChambeau! This has got to be a foolsday joke right?!? If not it’s rather sad. Those Edel sticks were so sweet.

    Is this real, or a joke? I can’t tell…

If you are a fan of golf, there’s a good chance you have seen the most recent video of Tiger Woods hitting a golf ball on the range posted to his twitter account yesterday.

Here we’ve rounded up some of the best tweets from Woods’ fellow PGA Tour players:

Tour Rundown: Morikawa wins twice on Sunday | Race to CME goes to JYK



This is it. Really, this is it. This is really it. The soon-to-be-renamed European Tour is done. The PGA Tour is done. The LPGA is done. I’m done. Happy American Thanksgiving. It’s colder than the Canadian one, but a good cold breeze is bracing. It also reminds us to get inside, so that we don’t get sick, or frostbite, or some other malady. It also reminds us to be thankful for things like … shirts that don’t tear when you shoot 74 in the final round and fall from first place to another level of frustration (hypothetically speaking, of course.)

Anyhoo, anyhow, anyway, join us one last time for a running of the tours, which is much, much safer than a running of the bulls.

European Tour: Morikawa wins twice on Sunday

I remember that summer of 2019, when Collin Morikawa and two other college stars made their debuts on tour. The guy with the powerful, funky swing won right away. The other guy, the Nordic one, seemed destined to win soon enough (he would win in February of the next year.) Even though Morikawa won in 2019, pundits assessed him to be third in line to the throne. Two years have passed, and there is no line. the Iron Throne belongs to Morikawa.

The Californian from Cal-Berkeley owns two major titles, six worldwide wins, and his first Order of Merit. I’ve always liked that title. Way better than Race To The Cup or any other moniker out there. I’m bringing it back. Morikawa had a good hold on the European Tour’s season-long race, thanks to his Open title in July and his WGC last February. He came to Dubai with great focus, answering few to none of the pointed questions aimed his way. In contrast, and to his credit, Matt Fitzpatrick wasn’t giving up.

The Englishman wasn’t defiant, but he was gritty. He insisted that, as we all know, the tournament and the season were not over until the flagstick was replaced. Fitz did his part with a 66 on Sunday, moving all the way up to a tie for second with Alexander Bjôrk. At that point, sadly, Fitz was finished. He needed a win.

Who topped him? Morikawa, of course. His Sunday 66 at the Earth Course included five birdies on the inward half, when he simply decided to say By the way, I’m the best of 2021. Here’s my third win to prove it. Morikawa’s swing has zero moving parts that should not be moving. It is modern, but classic, if that is possible. If he chases zero distance over the next fifteen years, and simply plays well from tee to green, he should win five more majors and a few more Orders of Merit around the world.

LPGA: Race To CME goes to JYK

Remember last week when Nelly Korda became Rolex Rankings number one again, despite not playing? Pretty sure that’s about to change again. Jin Young Ko steamrolled the field at Tiburón in Naples. The Original JYK was nine-under on day four, breaking out of a four-way tie for the lead at dawn’s first light.

Nelly? She had 69 for T5. Celine? 68 for T3. Nasa? She gave Jin everything she could handle. Hataoka signed for 64, and her 6th-hole bogey was her only blemish on the day. She matched Ko birdie for birdie, posting nine of her own on the final day. She made up strokes on three of the final four holes. Trouble was, Young Ko did not wilt. She turned in 30 and added three more chirps on the inward half, putting things away at the 17th with her last of the day.

The title was her fifth of 2021, and her 12th overall. Ko hit 63 consecutive greens this week, and is on a runaway-train path to the LPGA Hall of Fame, and it will be a pleasure to watch her do just that.

PGA Tour:  RSM Classic crowns Gooch by a smooch

Talor Gooch knocked on a number of doors this fall, most recently the Fortinet and the CJ Cup. At both events, he finished top-five, but could not break through for the “V.” At Sea Island, Gooch went into the final round with a one-shot lead over Sebastián Múñoz. Feeling balanced, Gooch went out and bookended his opening 64 with the same closing number. He made a pair of birdies on the front, then turned on the juice and recorded four more coming home. No bogeys found his card this day.

Mackenzie Hughes, the 2016 champion at the RSM, went out in 30 to pick up three strokes on Gooch. Feeling his own brand of juice, Hughes posted four more birdies on the back nine, but also stumbled to a bogey at the par-three twelfth hole. He missed long and left, and failed to get up and down for par. When Gooch made three at the same hole, minutes later, the road to victory got easier.

Two unofficial events (Hero and QBE) will take place in December, and the Tour will return to action on January 6th, for two consecutive weeks in the Hawaiian islands.
