Bryson leaves Vijay mesmerized in unmissable video from the Masters

Published

on

Whether it’s calling Augusta National a par 67 or claiming he can live until 130, Bryson DeChambeau rarely disappoints, and the 27-year-old has already provided some unmissable content from this week’s Masters.

On the range on Monday, Bryson took to the hallowed turf of Augusta and began ripping drives at some speed, leaving former Masters champion Vijay Singh to abandon his own work to enjoy the show with a big smile on his face.

Check out Bryson going through his speed drill below.

Users on social media reacted to the video in their droves, with plenty of hilarious comments, including “When u bring ur new driver to the range for the first time” to “This is me pi**ed off on the first tee after hitting the first 3 OB”.

Bryson is already the talk of the 2021 Masters, and it’s still only Tuesday!

    Bryson has ruined his game. Speed isn’t helping him win. Arrogant loser

      So his speed hasn’t given him a better year so far than you? He hasn’t won anything? And yet here you are complaining after watching him… You have issues…

    Bryson’s not just a bomber
    He’s an accomplished strategist.
    His mind works on a level that few human beings can comprehend.

      Maybe, but he’ll never be able to cheat as well as me,

    Is it necessary to speed up the video? Kind of detracts from the experience.

    This is awesome. Pushing the game. Kinda surprising it’s taken this long for someone to push it this far with modern equipment.

    In tennis they figured it out quickly — bigger composite frames, esp. with addition of poly strings, didn’t allow you to hit it any harder (e.g., a pro can hit a serve just as hard with a wood frame Jack Kramer strung with gut as with a modern racquet) but the bigger face allowed players to take a bigger cut and to take more risks in terms of their angle of attack (because the racquet face is wider), which provided the double benefit of more velocity AND more margin for error (in the form of more spin to bring the ball back into the court).

    Obviously the pros are hitting it further and straighter since the arrival of the Pro V1 and big-headed drivers, but no one has really gotten after it like this until Bryson.

      So much truth here but without having a decent game past tee tee box, no one would be paying much attention.

Augusta National is… hiring a bartender?

Published

on

Iconic golf club and host site of the Masters, Augusta National, is in fact hiring, although it is not the type of job we were expecting! That’s right, a recent advertisement is calling for… a bartender.

The ideal candidate must be able to, “provide members and guests with the finest food and drink accompanied by attentive and gracious service, while maintaining the strict confidentiality of all club business.” Sounds about right.

Experience wise, one year of bartending experience is required as well as a high school diploma or equivalent. Other vacancies at the club include a Front Desk Assistant, Cook, and Housekeeper, just to name a few.

Check out how the contents of pro’s bags have changed through the years

Published

on

As technology continues to improve in golf equipment, it is no surprise to see that PGA Tour professionals have adapted and made changes to the contents of their golf bags throughout the years.

Check out this post from @sms_on_tour , who tracked the average clubs used by players over the last 15 Opens, to see what types of clubs have become more popular over the last 15 years.

There are a few major takeaways. Firstly, pro golfers seem to be carrying more wedges these days. Phil Mickelson raised eyebrows when he first experimented with carrying four wedges, yet over the last 15 years, we have seen a steady and progressive trend towards many Tour pros deploying a similar approach.

Secondly, there’s been a clear increase in hybrids/utility irons at the expense of regular 2-irons and 3-irons. In theory, this is not surprising given the technological increases and general playability of today’s top hybrids and driving irons. With that being said, Ben Hogan must be turning over in his grave!
