‘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.”

    He’s not the only one who declined. Why not put their names in the heading as well? I think we know the answer to that.

    “Too invasive” says they guy who posts Instagram pics/stories/videos of himself working out and driving a Rolls Royce SUV. He’s practically carrying a “LOOK AT ME!” sign. What a tool.

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.

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.

20-handicap player achieves feat never accomplished by PGA Tour pro

Published

on

Ask any handicap golfer their dream shot, and in most cases, it will be the elusive hole-in-one.

Some may even say recording an albatross – three under par – is their flight of fantasy.

Imagine, then, recording both in a five-hole stretch.

The Irish Examiner recently highlighted that very feat, performed by Rowan McCarthy, a 20-handicapper playing Wembley Golf Course in Perth, Australia.

A member of the Irish Perth golf society, McCarthy, who now posts as @shankmagic on Instagram, told the Irish Examiner, “On 12, the hole-in-one, it was a beautiful 7-iron, 169 metres, that drew towards the hole, hit the front of the green and leisurely rolled towards the hole and dropped in dead weight.

“Then on 15, the albatross, it was 185 metres with a 5-iron, downhill, using the bank adjacent the green, ran towards the hole, hit the flag and dropped. I might have caught that one a bit thin.”

According to the golfer himself, “Statistically, the chances of a hole in 1 are 12,000-to-1 and an albatross is 6 million-to-1. The odds of one of each in the same round…who knows? Some say it is 72 billion to one. It is a day I will never forget.”

It was certainly an eventful round with five pars, six bogeys, two doubles and three treble-bogeys accompanying the two obvious standout holes!

McCarthy told the Examiner that the thought of giving up had crossed his mind, knowing he would never top what he had just achieved, but ”I love it too much”. “That thought did enter my head” he admitted, ”but the craic, the banter and the friendships I’ve made,” he admitted. “I play off 20, hit thousands of bad shots over the years, there is lots of room for improvement and this will spur me on.”

As such, he hopes the new social media address will ‘influence and give hope to the average golfer that anything is possible.’

One thing that might not is the traditional hole-in-one bar bill!
