Chopra Leads Buick Open by 2 After 3

Daniel Chopra stands atop the leaderboard after the third round of the Buick Open at Warwick Hills. Hitting only 3 of 14 fairways, Mr. Chopra still hit 13 of 18 greens today. “I have a good imagination and can hit trundlers and cuts and hooks and find ways to get it on the green,” he said. “As long as you give me a swing and some kind of a gap, I’m pretty good at finding it.” I’d call that an understatement given those numbers. “This golf course allows you to do that. It relaxes me a little bit off the tee so that I can go ahead and hit it. If I miss, I can use my skill to recover.”

Apparently the caddies are searching for a nickname for the 34 year old Swede. Todd Hamilton’s caddie came up with “Rambo” because he’s deadly from the trees. I think I like Wild Thing better, given the spray shots he launches from the tee. I’m sure he’ll settle for Champ at the end of the day tomorrow.

Daniel Chopra stands atop the leaderboard after the third round of the Buick Open at Warwick Hills.  Hitting only 3 of 14 fairways, Mr. Chopra still hit  13 of 18 greens today.  “I have a good imagination and can hit trundlers and cuts and hooks and find ways to get it on the green,” he said. “As long as you give me a swing and some kind of a gap, I’m pretty good at finding it."  I’d call that an understatement given those numbers. “This golf course allows you to do that. It relaxes me a little bit off the tee so that I can go ahead and hit it. If I miss, I can use my skill to recover.”

Apparently the caddies are searching for a nickname for the 34 year old Swede.  Todd Hamilton’s caddie came up with  "Rambo" because he’s deadly from the trees.  I think I like Wild Thing better, given the spray shots he launches from the tee.  I’m sure he’ll settle for Champ at the end of the day tomorrow.

 

 

Mr Chopra leads a threesome of Dudley Hart, Woody Austin, and Bubba Watson by those two shots.  Second round leader Bo Van Pelt, after a smooth 73 is another shot back with Kenny Perry whose name has popped up atop a lot of leaderboards this season. 

Mr. Hart missed the last seven months of 2007 when a softball sized tumor was discovered in his wife’s lung. Surgery removed the tumor and half the lung and fortunately the tumor was benign.  Mr Hart returned to the tour this year on a medical exemption and has earned enough cash to retain his playing status.  Playing golf must seem somewhat less serious these days. 

Mr. Watson had his best finish at the 2007 Houston Open where he tied for second.  He finished sixth at the Travelers Classic for his best finish this year.  Mr. Watson has shown a tendency to crack when put in position to win (hasn’t happened often, but he folds much like a cheap suit, with a lot of wrinkles) . 

Mr. Perry has had a number of chances to win this year but has been plagued by some nasty little gremlins with the ability to deposit his ball in places qualifying as places.  Remember the ball off the tree into the water?  But now that he’s got his win under his belt, if his putter works tomorrow he could take another trophy and a guaranteed invite to the Ryder Cup.

Speaking of Ryder Cup, should Mr. Chopra maintain his place atop the field at the end of tomorrow, he too will have a chance to make the Ryder Cup team.  Two wins in one season on the PGA Tour will do that for a player.  So he’s got some extra motivation.

We’ll just have to watch to see who wins.  I have difficulty picking a winner on a course where everyone can make birdies by the bunch.  Hottest putter gets the trophy.

New year, new gear: A list of players who have switched equipment companies

Published

on

Editor’s note: We filed this story for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report.

The new year brings with it the promise of change, and for many PGA TOUR players, that means new equipment. This time of year is the closest golf comes to free agency, with players switching “teams” to new manufacturers. With many equipment contracts expiring with the end of the year, we’re on the lookout for players who have made big changes in their bag (and often to the logo on their hat).

Here’s a list of what we’ve seen thus far, with players listed by their new company (and their previous one in parentheses). We will continue to update this list with new additions.

PXG
Adam Schenk (Mizuno)
Luke List (free agent)
Hudson Swafford (free agent)
Danny Lee (TaylorMade)
Sung Kang (Titleist)
Jim Herman (TaylorMade)
Kyle Stanley (free agent)
Henrik Norlander (TaylorMade)

Srixon
Matt NeSmith (Callaway)
K.J. Choi (Ping)

GolfWRX Classifieds (01/25/21): Miura TC201, Mizuno JPX921 Tours, and brand new TaylorMade P7TW

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules
