The U.S. Open is here, and though he may not be a major champion yet, bookmakers have priced up Jon Rahm as the prohibitive favorite this week in California.

Bryson: ‘The driver sucks!’; Cobra rep: ‘Really painful when he says something that stupid’



Bryson DeChambeau never looked comfortable on day one of the Open at Royal St. Georges, and after his round blasted his driver which he says “sucks”, before a Cobra rep scolded the 2020 U.S. Open champ for his outburst.

The 27-year-old hit only one of his opening nine fairways on Thursday morning and was candid when talking to media regarding his frustration with the big stick.

“The driver sucks!. It’s not a good face for me, and we’re still trying to figure out how to make it good on the mishits. I’m living on the razor’s edge like I’ve told people for a long time.

“When I did get it outside of the fairway, like in the first cut and whatnot, I catch jumpers out of there and I couldn’t control my wedges.”

Bryson did find something on his back nine, ending the day 4/14 for fairways hit, but it appears the 27-year-old was downcast on turning things around with his current driver face, saying that the issues have been there for years.

“I’ve realised this for years now. This has happened since 2016-17 when players stopped drawing it. There’s not very many golfers that draw it anymore. It’s not because of spin rate. Everybody thinks it’s because we’re at 2000, 1800 spin or whatever. It’s not.

“It’s literally the physics and the way that they build heads now. It’s not the right design, unfortunately, and we’ve been trying to fix it.”

Speaking to GolfWeek’s David Dusek, Ben Schomin, who along with being Cobra’s tour operations manager, caddied for Bryson two week’s ago at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, then had his say on Bryson’s criticism of his Cobra Radspeed driver ( 5 degrees).

Schomin, who is involved in the building process for Bryson’s driver and irons, responded to Bryson’s outburst by telling the publication that it’s “really painful when he (Bryson) says something that stupid”.

“Everybody is bending over backwards. We’ve got multiple guys in R&D who are CAD’ing (computer-aided design) this and CAD-ing that, trying to get this and that into the pipeline faster. (Bryson) knows it. It’s just really, really painful when he says something that stupid.

He has never really been happy, ever. Like, it’s very rare where he’s happy. Now he’s in a place where he’s swinging a 5-degree driver with 200 mph of ball speed. Everybody is looking for a magic bullet. Well, the magic bullet becomes harder and harder to find the faster you swing and the lower your loft gets.”

On Thursday evening, Bryson released a statement on his social media condemning his earlier comments as being “very unprofessional”.

Tommy Fleetwood’s caddie jabs back at Bryson in recent “fore” debate



Bryson DeChambeau has recently garnered some criticism for his response to a seemingly controversial question from a media member on Tuesday at the Open Championship.

DeChambeau was asked why he never shouts “fore” when hitting a ball towards a crowd, to which he responded, “I do shout fore… You are bringing up a very controversial thing, which is unfortunate.”

The video made the rounds of golf twitter all day, and Ian Finnis, professional caddie for Tommy Fleetwood, felt the need to throw his two cents in with the following tweet:

The tournament hasn’t even started, and Bryson’s come under fire once again. Tommy Fleetwood can surely be added to the list of players that would make for an awkward pairing with Bryson!

Players wary of ‘unfair’ Royal St. Georges



It’s the first Open Championship for two years, but a trip down south to Royal St. George’s hasn’t got every golfer excited for the week ahead, with some high-profile players not exactly thrilled with the venue.

The ever candid Brooks Koepka spoke on Tuesday about the course, where he made it clear that it’s not one of his favorite courses, with the many blind tee shots not to his liking.

“It’s not my favorite venue that we have played. I think Portrush and St Andrews are definitely the favorites. I haven’t seen all 18, I’ll see the back nine today. But quite a few blind tee shots, kind of hitting to nothing. Fairways are quite undulating. I don’t know, it’s not my favorite of the rotation, put it that way.

“This one, it’s just not as exciting. I don’t know why. Whether it be a couple shots to nothing, a couple of blind tee shots or shots in where you can’t really see much. I’m not too big of a fan of that.”

Bernhard Langer, who finished in the top-3 here three times in his career, is another who isn’t a fan of the English golf course, telling the Daily Mail on Tuesday that: “It is, to me, the most unfair of all the courses on the rota.”

It’s also fair to assume that the course isn’t number one on Rory McIlroy’s list of favorites either, who speaking on a podcast last year, stated: “Can’t we just skip St George’s and go straight to St Andrews?”

However, it seems the Irishman has had a change of heart over the course, as speaking to media this week, McIlroy revealed that after playing a softer Royal St. Georges at the weekend, the venue seems improved to him:

“Even before all the rain, the course was quite lush and green and we weren’t seeing the bounces that we’re accustomed to getting here,” he said. “I walked away after the weekend thinking this is a much better golf course than I remember.”

As for the big-hitting Bryson DeChambeau, it appears that the 27-year-old is prepared to dial it back this week in order to stay out of the “diabolical hay” surrounding the fairways.
