Charles Howell III on why he finds the GolfWRX forums “very beneficial”

Published

on

While we’ve seen a few Tour pros in the GolfWRX forums, rumor has persisted for years that Charles Howell III, one of the biggest gearheads in the professional ranks, frequents our fair forums.

Naturally, Johnny Wunder led off his Gear Dive podcast with CH III by asking the golfer if he visits the site.

Here’s what he had to say.

“I first heard about GolfWRX…quite a while ago…I would kind of go on there not only for…looking around, but for research and information.”

“Playing golf on the PGA Tour, we’re fortunate that we have access to a lot of different manufacturers…but if I want to know what’s the best shaft for, let’s say, higher launch and low spin, it’s hard to find an unbiased view…but yet on GolfWRX, you have a lot of users and people that have tested them and done reviews, etc. And I’ve found that very beneficial.”

“We all have the common bond that we love golf, and we just want to play better golf, I just happen to be fortunate enough that this is what I do for a living, so I’m highly motivated to find any edge I can get…through GolfWRX, I was able to read and study a lot [particularly in] the shafts area…I found that very beneficial.”

Asked whether he posts at all, Howell said,

“No. I would end up laying in bed at night either arguing or putting my two cents where they don’t belong…there’s people out there that are a lot smarter on these topics than I am, so I’m better off just trying to learn something.”

How cool is that, GolfWRX members? And the humility! I imagine CH III’s kung-fu is pretty darn good. But yeah, Charles Howell III: he’s just like us (minus the whole being a PGA Tour pro thing).

You’ll want to give Johnny’s full talk with Howell a listen. He candidly discusses the equipment he’s played throughout his year and offers an honest assessment of his career and the move to PXG that you have to hear.

    Another “Journey Man” who is a millionaire by being mediocre. He should be kissing Tiger Woods rear end for that.

    This was great! I’ve been picking him all year in DFS and he’s been doing well.

    If he would stop paying attention to us nitwits on WRX but instead practice and play harder, he might win more.

PGA Tour and European Tour announce landmark ‘strategic alliance’

Published

on

The PGA Tour and European Tour have today announced a partnership that will see the two tours working together as part of a “strategic alliance”.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan will join the Board of the European Tour as the two tours will combine and explore a range of collaboration opportunities including both schedule and commercial wise – including collaborating on global media rights in certain territories.

As part of the agreement, the PGA Tour will acquire a minority investment stake in European Tour Productions company which produces and airs content to a global audience.

Speaking on the new “strategic alliance”, Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the European Tour, said

“This partnership is an historic moment for the game of golf and is a fantastic opportunity for both the European Tour and the PGA TOUR to explore ways to come together at the very pinnacle of our sport and work in unison for the benefit of the men’s professional game.

Today’s announcement is the formalisation of a closer working relationship between the Tours in recent years. It was one which was crystalised earlier this year when both Jay and I were part of the working group containing representatives of the four Majors and the LPGA, a group which helped shape the remainder of the golfing calendar for 2020 during unprecedented times.

We shared the challenges of working through a year neither of us could have ever imagined and we found definite synergies in many areas of our respective Tours. That gave us the impetus to move forward together and arrive at this momentous announcement we are making today.”

The Tours will also work together on global scheduling, prize funds and playing opportunities for the respective memberships, with details to be announced at a later date.

“We are thrilled to announce this further strengthening of our partnership with the European Tour, and we look forward to working together for the benefit of the men’s professional game and for golf fans around the world.” – Jay Monahan
