Why Dwyane Wade has no interest in watching HBO’s Tiger Woods documentary

Published

on

Regardless of whether right or wrong, when you get that influential, documentaries and films are inevitable.

Very few of the biggest film, rock or sports stars escape deep scrutiny, and Tiger Woods would not slip past that easily, certainly not with the colourful history that goes with the empire.

We know that the star of the show had zero input into making the two-parter, ‘Tiger’, from HBO and has made very little mention or discussion on the subject since.

Naturally, sports stars take a tremendous interest in and admire fellow sports stars, and recently 13-time NBA all-star Dwyane Wade gave his view on the documentary that has and will continue to intrigue both fans and non-followers of the sport.

On a recent podcast, Wade, who played a celebrity round with Woods in July 2021, revealed his view of the controversial film, and it left listeners in no doubt whose side he was on.

“No, I didn’t. I didn’t watch it because Tiger didn’t do it. So for me, I was like as someone who’s out here in public light. Stories can be told about you just as you know. Hence, I didn’t watch it.”

After 15 Majors and a recent return to the sport amidst a fanfare of publicity, this may not be the only Tiger Woods film Wade chooses not to watch by the time his friend eventually retires.

    “ On a recent podcast, Wade, who played a celebrity round with Woods in July 2021…”

    Am I missing something here? Pretty sure Tiger couldn’t walk in July 2021.

    People rarely like it when their dirty laundry is aired. They prefer the white-washed version of themselves is all people know.

Bryson DeChambeau reveals his distance goals for 2022

Published

on

Three weeks ago, a high-profile Cobra testing session involving both world number 8 Bryson DeChambeau and two-time World Long Drive champion Kyle Berkshire took place.

Whilst Berkshire clocked a record ball speed of 233.4, the ten-time winner wasn’t exactly disappointed with his own personal best of 221mph, and he believes this is coming to the PGA tour.

Promoting the upcoming Saudi International, the 2020 U.S Open winner commented,

“This year I’ll hit it even further. Once I get into some lower lofted heads that I’ll be getting this week or next week, you’ll be seeing some much longer drives.”

Clear leader in the driving distance stats on tour, many pundits question the pursuit of length to the possible detriment of the rest of his game, but Bryson isn’t to be tamed. He added:

“We’re getting close to having something that we can get working at 200mph ball speed that will work on tour. I’m super excited and happy with Cobra. We came to a bit of a sticking point last year but we’ve worked together and burst through that wall.”

Only 25th at the season opener, the Tournament of Champions, he withdrew from this week’s Sony Open with an injury to his left wrist, which had been ‘bothering me for about three or four weeks now.’

Bryson continued, ”All the speed training has definitely taken a toll on my muscular structure. Now, it’s got to a point where I’m putting so much speed and force into my wrist.”

With some driver-friendly events coming up, Bryson is going to see plenty more interest in his long game to begin 2022.

‘Too invasive for me’ – Bryson snubs Netflix docuseries

Published

on

As reported yesterday, Netflix is currently filming a docuseries profiling some of the biggest names on the PGA TOUR.

However, Bryson DeChambeau will not be one of those big names.

In a virtual news conference on Thursday to promote the Saudi International, Bryson explained why he didn’t want to be a part of the series:

“There’s a lot of factors going on in that. One, there wasn’t a deal that was struck that was very well for my side of it. I love Netflix. I watch it. I have a great time with it. But just for me, it wasn’t right at the present moment.”

DeChambeau has been busy with his own content, releasing videos showing his insane ball and clubhead speeds and is approaching 900,000 followers on Instagram, and added to reporters on Thursday:

“They’re getting a pretty dang good look inside my life [from YouTube]. And to have more people come in and go even further, which is almost impossible for what I’m giving out, is just too invasive for me.

There’s a lot of great people on there. If I was to go on there, yeah, it would be cool to see, but I feel like there’s a lot more interesting stories. You’ve got Harry Higgs. You’ve got numerous others.”

Tour pro withdraws from Australian PGA after slicing hand mid-round

Published

on

After being postponed twice because of Covid, you would think the dominant story at the Australian PGA might be the first-round lead, held by world number 1387 Louis Dobbelaar.

However, in a bizarre incident Damien Jordan grabbed the headlines with a withdrawal, according to Australian Associated Press, due to ”slicing his hand trying to move a stake on the course.”

Full details are not clear as yet but Golf Australia’s editor, Jimmy Emanuel, first reported on the accident on Twitter, posting that Jordan “went to move a stake on course and sliced his hand the entire width from top to bottom. Quite heavy bleeding so off to see a doctor.”

At the event itself, Dobbelaar leads at 7-under and by one from Aaron Pike and Jediah Morgan with short-priced pre-event favourite, Min Woo Lee, just four behind.

Over at the accompanying WPGA event, Su Oh has a clear lead after the first round, being three shots clear at 5-under the card.

They all may ask their caddies to move boundary markers for the rest of the event.
