‘I’ve never seen anybody do what he just did’ – Brandel Chamblee left in awe at Tiger trick

Published

on

Add stumping Brandel Chamblee with a golf ball trick to the never ending list of Tiger Woods’ accomplishments.

Ahead of the final round of the PNC Championship on Sunday, Woods was on the practice green and tossed his golf ball on the green and somehow made the ball stop dead in its tracks:

A stunned Chamblee remarked:

“I’ve seen Tiger do some amazing things, as we all have, but I’ve never seen him do what he just did. I’ve never seen anybody do what he just did. I don’t even know how he did it. I mean, I’ve heard of the ball spin too much, but he’s throwing these balls out on the green and snap ’em back — I’ve never seen anybody do that.”

In disbelief, the Golf Channel analyst then compared Woods’ trick to another he had seen in the past:

“We’re standing on the tee waiting for the group in front of us, and he takes a tee and he’s got it in his hand and he throws it at the ground and it sticks in the ground,”And he picks it up and did it again. I was like, give me that tee. Is that a weighted tee or something? So I tried it and I couldn’t do it.

But I spent the next three, four months getting to where I could do it. The key, you got to snap it just right, and you got to release it just right. I was so proud of that move. You know, I’d do it every now and again and somebody would go, well, how do you do that? I’m like I’m not telling you.

But that pales in comparison to throwing a golf ball out onto the green and getting it to spin back.”

Tiger really can do it all.

    Did this all the time in junior golf. What’s the big deal? Next will be his tee box putt-putt skills. LOL!

    I don’t know what’s worse – the ridiculous take by Chamblee (seriously, have you never seen anyone throw a ball with spin on it?) or the clickbait headline that actually got me to read this “article.” Do better, GolfWRX – this is not a good look.

    Lol. Really? He’s just snapping it. Been doing this for years. Learned it as a kid.

    My buddies and I were doing that when we were in our teens. Sorry to have to downgrade Tiger’s God-like powers.

    I think that Mr Chamblee needs to get away from golf for a while. Hahahahaha

Brandel Chamblee expertly analyses ‘Putting vs Ball Striking’ debate

Published

on

While discussing Hideki Matsuyama’s putting struggles over the weekend, Brandel Chamblee made some interesting comments regarding the importance of putting on the PGA Tour.

Often times we hear commentators claim that, “whoever makes the most putts will win”; or “putting is the most important aspect of golf”. Chamblee claims that it isn’t who putts the best, it’s who putts the best amongst the premier ball strikers.

“You can’t play this game at the highest level unless you are an extraordinary ball striker.

“It’s not about who makes the most putts, it’s about who putts the best amongst the best ball strikers.

“And when he (Hideki) has a decent week at putting he has a chance to win.”

Check out Chamblee’s commentary in full below.

Leading analyst believes Tiger could retire at 2022 Open Championship

Published

on

In 2015, Tiger Woods made it clear just how much he loves the Old Course at St. Andrews, revealing he wants to play the course backwards in his lifetime.

”It’s brilliant–how you can play it so many different ways.” said Tiger “I’ve always wanted to play it one time–before I die I want to play it one time backwards.

”I want to play from 1 to 17, 2 to 16, so forth and so on. I’d love to be able to play it that way just one time. That would be just a blast because I can see how certain bunkers–why would they put that there? ”

There has been lots of water under the Swilken Bridge since then but at a recent press conference during the Hero Championship, hosted by Tiger, the 15-time Major winner confirmed he ”would love to be able to play that Open Championship (150th anniversary), there’s no doubt. Physically, hopefully I can,” he said.

”The tournament’s not going to go anywhere, but I need to get there.”

Indeed, Sky Sports golf coach and analyst Simon Holmes, who has worked with the likes of Sir Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros,  believes that Woods could even confirm his retirement at the ‘Home of Golf’ in 2022.

Responding to fellow presenter Rob Lee’s thinking that Woods could win a tournament in 2022 – which would make him the winningest golfer in PGA Tour history at 83 wins – Holmes believes Woods may bow out in similar fashion to legends before him, including Jack Nicklaus, the very man that stands in his way for the most Majors won, at 18.

During the final round of the Tournament of Champions on Sky, Holmes replied, “I really hope it doesn’t happen, but it’s something I think that could happen.”

“Jack and Arnie did the same thing on the Swilken Bridge when they played in their last major,” Holmes continued, ”and I could just see Tiger thinking it would be a nice way to go out.”

July 17th sees the Claret Jug being awarded for the 150th running of The Open. It may be memorable for much more besides.

Jessica Korda’s Vokey wedge stampings show how much she loves her movies

Published

on

It’s just over a week before the LPGA season gets underway, and ahead of the year’s opening event Jessica Korda has been showing off her new custom wedge stampings.

On Instagram, the elder Korda sister displayed her four Vokey wedges and gave credit to wedge rep Aaron Dill for the stunning work he did on the stampings.

Korda clearly likes her movies, so see if you can match the quotes below to the big screen films they feature in…

Of course, the first wedge is from Dirty Dancing, while it’s safe to assume the 28-year-old spent some time with the McCallister family over the Holidays, with 3 of her wedges containing quotes from the iconic Home Alone films.

Korda is expected to begin her 2022 season at next week’s Diamond Resort Tournament of Champions from Lake Nona GC, where she is the defending champion.
