WATCH: Bryson DeChambeau geeks out over original Stimpmeter

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau is a unique individual, and we love him for it. And while stories of the SMU alum and physics major’s singular approach to the game have been written ad nauseam in recent months (have you heard he plays single length irons!), this was cool to see: DeChambeau getting a look at the original Stimpmeter and geeking out accordingly.

Credit to PGATour.com’s D.J. Piehowski for the spot.

DeChambeau, who opened with a 1-over-par 71, also indicated, seemingly, that when he was approached with the device at the start of the video, he was “calculating the deviation in the x-direction.” You’ll have to watch the clip to see what that heck he’s talking about on that front, but it sounds interesting. 

Never change, Bryson.

Fun fact: The Stimpmeter was invented 80 years ago, and it traces its origins to Oakmont. Edward S. Stimpson, captain of the Harvard golf team and Massachusetts state amateur champ, produced a prototype of his device after heading about how Gene Sarazen putted a ball off the green at Oakmont into the bunker, victim of the wildly inconsistent green speeds that were common at the time.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons which he has in the bag at this week’s CJ Cup. WRXers have been commenting on the switch and the clubs themselves in our forums.

For lots more photos, check out the full thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • btyh: “Holy offset.”
  • Glf_LU: “These are interesting. Not going to make a rush to judgement until I see them in person. It does look like a little more offset than I would expect to see in this model.”
  • bcflyguy1: “Kisner is not one to make a lot of equipment changes (see the GBB driver he’s still using), so if these do have staying power in his bag that will be interesting to see. I have to wonder if there’s something different about his set, because like others have mentioned there appears to be more offset on his than I recall seeing in the samples I’ve had in hand.”

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.
