Whats in the Bag

Bryson DeChambeau: ‘What’s in my unique bag’ 

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau’s new YouTube channel is providing his fans with some awesome content since its launch earlier this year, and his latest video is a gearhead’s dream.

In his latest video, Bryson takes viewers through his bag in stunning detail with lots of different cool nuggets – including his carry length, prototypes he’s working on with Cobra, and how people confuse “loft jacking”.

Wedges

“I can’t talk too much about the wedges per contractual obligations, but they are unique…and have new LA Golf shafts, the stiffest shaft on the market.”

His shaft setup earlier this month was:

Wedges: Artisan Prototype (50 @47, 55 @52, 60 @58), Shafts: LA Golf Rebar Proto shaft

Irons

Bryson plays Cobra’s King Forged Tour One Length irons throughout the bag (as well as LA Golf Shafts), but says “soon enough we’ll be switching because there’s a new iteration coming out, that’s better than this.”

The 27-year-old also explained how the face of his irons are ground off because he has a lot of dig in his off-swing. Bryson explains that he tries to make the face as blunt as possible so that “it bounces and skims through the surface.”

On his irons being “loft jacked”, Bryson explains that the reason for this is because of the swing speed and spin rates that he is producing, with his irons being de-lofted to help control loft and spin.

Irons: Cobra King One Length Utility (4, 5), Cobra King Forged Tour One Length (6-PW), Shafts: LA Golf Rebar Proto (37.5 inches)

Woods

His hybrid is a Cobra King SZ Tour which he calls “old trusty” and that he flies 275-280 yards.

Bryson’s 3-wood Cobra King Prototype B (10.5 degrees) is a raw prototype with welded on rails and a shaved toe that is coming out later this year. 

On his “beast” driver, Bryson unveiled a Cobra King LTD at 6.5 degrees, but he is also testing another couple of heads. 

One of those heads is a beta prototype that he says is “very, very close to being what we want.” Adding that, the “unique face” is “really, really fast. We’re getting close, but we’re not there yet. It’s a head that I’ll be using in the near future.”

Putter

On his SIK Pro C-Series Armlock putter, DeChambeau credits Matt Kuchar for the inspiration behind using the flat-stick. Though Bryson says he tries to resemble a machine when putting, he says he feels the putts by altering the length of his stroke. 

Bryson also goes through his sponsors, and accessories which includes a ruler, which he says helps him control his length of stroke, a detail which he again says is where feel in the stroke emerges.

Are forgiving irons or a forgiving driver more important to lower scores? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been having a deep discussion on which section of the bag it is more important to have forgiveness. WRXer ‘Mvhoffman’ kicks off the thread by asking for a generalized opinion on the subject, saying

“Is it more important to have more forgiving irons/wedges or more forgiving Driver/Woods? What would lower scores, in your opinion? 

I personally think that there are not enough people playing the more forgiving/playable drivers/woods, and that is driving up scores. I think that there is more of a consequence with hitting less forgiving “woods” than irons simply because of length of club/swing/speed/dispersion.”

And our members have been having their say on the matter in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • jcvandamme: “For my own game, I think the forgiving driver is more important. I’m trying to find something a little more forgiving to replace my G400 LST because I don’t like the results I get from mishits. With the courses I play, it’s much easier for me to shoot better scores when I’m in play off the tee as opposed to hitting 3 off the tee or punching out from the trees and trying to get up and down from 60 yards to save par.”
  • TiScape: “Reading threads here for quite a while now. I’d say the general consensus is that “forgiving” clubs will most likely only save a player a couple strokes a round. And then go on to say “a bad swing is a bad swing”. As long as the specs of the clubs fit you. I’d tend to agree.”
  • mogc60: “Driver, wedge, putter! The rest is just fluff really. Those three clubs are by far the most important to playing good golf. Get those right, and your game will never be that far off. For the record, I first heard that from a 7 time tour winner. Driver over irons any day. It sets up everything.”
  • LeoLeo99: “Looking at the pros, they play forgiving drivers and a forgiving long iron or two and not so forgiving short and mid irons.”
