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.

Bryson DeChambeau reports 403-yard driver carry

Published

on

He may not have been in tournament action last week, but Bryson DeChambeau was continuing his hunt for added distance and reported reaching some eye-popping milestones.

On his social media channels, DeChambeau posted an image of his launch monitor, and the numbers speak for themselves, with a carry distance of 403 yards combined with 211mph ball speed.

As Bryson added in the post, those numbers were achieved without the 48-inch driver which he is hoping to put into play at next month’s Masters.

As many have noted on social media, should Bryson replicate that drive at Augusta National, then the Californian would be left with less than 50 yards for his approach to the devilishly difficult opening hole.
