Bryson DeChambeau’s stunning stock yardages for each club in 2020

Published

on

It’s well known that Bryson DeChambeau’s weight gain over the past year has resulted in remarkable distance gains driver wise, but what about his other clubs?

Talking to GolfTV, DeChambeau broke down his stock yardages for 2020, and as you can see below, the numbers are impressive across the board.

Speaking at last week’s RBC Heritage, DeChambeau broke down how his stunning distance gains afforded him different luxuries at Harbour Town, including a two club change at 17 from previous years and not having to hit driver on a par 5 to get home in two.

“It’s just a complete quantum shift for me that just allows me to go at things that I usually are not able to go at.

Just for example, I hit 3-wood, 4-iron on 5 ( par-5 542-yard hole), another one. That’s a perfect example. That’s definitely different for me. I never thought I’d be doing that in my lifetime.”

However, DeChambeau’s immense driving was tempered last week by Harbour Town’s tight fairways, with the 5-time winner on Tour not hitting his driver once during Friday’s second round (he still shot 64).

Following that round, the 26-year-old stated that he “didn’t let the Kraken out today”. But you can expect to see that change this week at the Travelers Championship.

    None of the articles from GolfWRX or Golfweek, GD, etc. about this subject care to mention that he’s using one length clubs with jacked up lofts. Typical media hype.

    EGO, he wants to be the longer ever, and after watching him las week he seemed totally out of control. I don’t remember him Birdieing the firs Par 5 at one time, a 503 yd Hole. He had better carry an ax with his he is in the trees so much. He would be better swing in control and still hitting it a mile, but with some sore of accuracy. Plus he will feel that out of control Driver swing he has, kind of a lunge, in fact a big lunge. But we will see what happens when he plays a long wide open course. I like the guy but he has to wake up and control his Ball..

    Bryson’s clubs are incredibly strong lofted with a 7i shaft in the lower irons. No wonder he hits it that far. I hit my 4 iron 230 and it’s 23.5 degrees which is what his 5 iron is..

    42 degree pitching wedge says it all. Don’t be deceived.

      And it’s a 7 iron shaft. Pretty sure most guys with decent clubhead speed could hit that 160 easily.

    I find it funny that he list a 47 degree wedge (my PW and most people within a degree) and a PW. I think his PW is 43 degrees. I saw his 4 iron is 18 degrees. 5 iron is 23 degrees. He plays them all the same length but the lofts are very delofted. Like at least a whole club. hitting a 47 degree wedge 147 is not that ridiculous for those guys. An 18 degree iron would go 255 for any of the longest hitters. Essential this just shows that he’s as along as Dustin, Rory and such with irons. His driver was 5.5 degrees hitting up 6 or 7 degrees. Dustin plays like a 10.5 degree driver. It’s not that crazy the distance you can hit it with that low of a loft.

Tiger Woods talks about his recovery in first interview since accident

Published

on

In his first interview since his single-car accident earlier this year, Tiger Woods has revealed that his rehab has been “more painful than anything” he has ever experienced.

In an exclusive interview with Golf Digest, Woods went into detail on his injury and recovery, as well as the outpouring of support he has received in the wake of his accident.

Speaking on his post-accident injuries, Woods told the publication

“This has been an entirely different animal. I understand more of the rehab processes because of my past injuries, but this was more painful than anything I have ever experienced.

My physical therapy has been keeping me busy. I do my routines every day and am focused on my No.1 goal right now: walking on my own. Taking it one step at a time.”

Woods first posted a photo update last month, with the 15-time major champion on crutches and in a walking boot.

A post shared by Tiger Woods (@tigerwoods)

Many fans commented at the time how Tiger’s upper body looked very athletic, and Woods told Golf Digest that it was likely a combination of the crutches and his workouts.

“It’s funny because in that photo, the crutches definitely make my shoulders look big!. Maybe it’s the workouts, too. It’s been nice having the ability to still stay strong and work out my upper body.”

The 45-year-old also described the support he has received from his legion of fans as well as those away from the sport as “incredible” and mentioned how it’s been a big help for him as he continues his recovery.

“It’s been incredible. I have had so much support from people both inside and outside of golf which means so much to me and has helped tremendously.”

Woods didn’t disclose any information to Golf Digest on his hopes of playing golf again.

LPGA pro hit with one of the most costly slow play penalties ever

Published

on

Last week at the 2021 PGA Championship, we saw the first slow-play penalty handed out at a major for eight years, but that penalty is small potatoes compared to what has occurred this week on the LPGA Tour.

At Bank of Hope LPGA Match Play on Wednesday, Carlota Ciganda and Sarah Schmelzel were locked in a battle, all-tied heading down the 18th.

The Spaniard Ciganda would win the 18th to give her the outright victory, but following the match, she was assessed a slow-play penalty, losing her the 18th and subsequently the match.

As the slow-play penalty is filed under ‘general penalty’, in match play, the result is a loss of the hole, according to Rule 3.2a.

Golf Channel’s Tom Abbott broke the news, which was later confirmed by the LPGA Tour, with the latter producing the following statement on the incident:

“On the 18th hole of her Day One match, Carlota Ciganda was assessed a loss-of-hole penalty for a breach of the LPGA’s Match-Play Pace of Play Policy. Per the policy, a player is subject to penalty if she exceeds the allotted time for her total strokes taken on a hole by more than 10 seconds, averaging 30 seconds per shot. Ciganda exceeded the allotted time for the number of strokes taken on the 18th hole.”

There are costly penalties, and then there is this.

Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau take swipes at each other on social media

Published

on

The ‘Bro-Chambeau’ rivalry has erupted this week, and on Wednesday, the feud spilled over onto social media with both players taking a shot at the other.

The latest interaction between the two was triggered by the news of this year’s ‘The Match’, a one-off event that will pit Bryson and Aaron Rodgers against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady.

Following the announcement of ‘The Match’, Brooks Koepka took to social media, saying “Sorry, bro @AaronRodgers12”, before Lefty hilariously decided to get involved…

Next, it was Bryson’s turn to have his say, responding to Koepka’s barb by telling him: “It’s nice to be living rent free in your head!”

Koepka wasn’t done, however, and in response, he posted a video of a fan calling Bryson “Brooksy” at a practice round at Kiawah Island last week.

You get the feeling the best is still to come too!
