Tony Romo has the coolest golf cart you’ll ever see

Published

on

With temperatures floating above 100 degrees this week in Tyler, Texas, home of the Texas State Open, Tony Romo certainly came prepared.

That’s right, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback showed up with an air-conditioned golf cart with sliding doors.

Unfortunately, it may not have given him the leg up that he was hoping for, as Romo opened with a one-over-par 71, good for 86th place after round one.

At least he outlasted the other former NFL standout in the field, as Johnny Manziel’s first round 79 was certainly not as impressive. With a projected cut of one-under par, Romo certainly stands a decent chance to ride into the weekend in cooler temperatures.

      Those also are not sliding doors. Good grief.

Lee Westwood shares a brilliant and obvious tip to help hone in your irons

Published

on

Ahead of the upcoming Ryder Cup matches, Lee Westwood took to social media to share a helpful tip on honing in your irons.

In the Twitter video, Westwood explains that he writes his stock yardages on the actual club of each of his irons. The Englishman shows the “164” written in black marker on the back of his 8-iron to the camera and then proceeds to flush one 163 yards.

Not bad.

This may seem like an incredibly obvious tip, but having the visual reminder has done wonders for the 46-year-old, who finished runner-up at the Players Championship this spring.

Westwood was eliminated from the FedEx Cup Playoffs at last week’s BMW Championship, but he is currently qualified for the European Ryder Cup team.

Bryson documents quest for 215mph ball speed ahead of Long Drive Championship

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau will tee it up later this month at The Professional Long Driver’s Association World Championship, and ahead of the event, the 27-year-old has been ramping up his preparation.

In a new video on Bryson’s YouTube Channel, the Californian gave fans inside access to how he’s gearing up for the event, with the testosterone reaching fever-pitch, even resulting in some broken golf balls!

In the vid, DeChambeau goes in search of 215mph ball speed, and it truly shows the dedication and mindset of the 2020 U.S. Open champ, as well as the hours and hard work he puts in to chase his goals.

Bryson reaches an impressive 212.5mph ball speed in training after a whopping 187 tries and then heads to a Long Drive Tournament simulation where he made it all the way to the final round thanks to smashed drives of up to 375 yards.

Interestingly, during the video, Bryson reveals that a big problem of his is “finding the ground” before he starts to release, as it has led to him slipping on tee shots, as we saw during the final round of this year’s U.S. Open.

For more behind the scenes videos of Bryson, you can subscribe to his YouTube channel here.

Phil Mickelson suggests non-perimeter weighted golf ball in rollback debate

Published

on

Earlier last week, Phil Mickelson made headlines for slamming the USGA about a potential driver-shaft rollback. Just a few days later, the six-time major champion doubled down on social media.

There is a lot to dissect in Mickelson’s three-minute video, but we’ll start here. To combat the controversial distance problem, instead of restricting the driver the length, the 45-time PGA Tour winner has proposed the idea of a non-perimeter weighted golf ball.

Mickelson goes on to discuss

“If you remember when the liquid center golf ball was the ball of choice 20 years ago, there was more weight on the center of the ball than there was on the perimeter. Also, the liquid center did not spin at the same rate as the outer cover at impact. So at impact the outer cover was spinning fast, and the liquid was spinning at a slower rate.

When the spin of the liquid and the outer cover matched, the outer covers momentum slowed down, and the liquid center was faster… What if we just got rid of the perimeter weighting so the golf ball wasn’t as stable and we had more weight in the center of the golf ball, we are going to get more side spin. Who’s that going to affect? The guy that hits it 300 yards instead of 200 yards.”

Who knew that the reigning PGA Champion was so passionate about this topic.

While Mickelson was eliminated from the FedEx Cup playoffs last week at the BMW Championship, his passionate speech comes on the heels of yesterday’s news that the 51-year old will be an assistant captain for the United States Ryder Cup team.

Mickelson has a busy September planned, as it was also announced today that he will be competing in the opening event of the PGA Tour’s 2021-2022 season, the Fortinet Championship in Napa, California on September 16-19.
