That was a non-apology apology, take back the apology, tell the haters **** you, but I love you, even though you hate me.

All while looking right up his nose....Yup!   I'm a fan!

 

That wasn't any kind of an apology. 
I thought it was pretty great.

I actually kind of like him now.

I could not even watch the entire OP clip.  Had to skip ahead a couple times...brutal.  

The golf channel showed it and they sped up the frame rate... hilarious!

Well, he certainly accomplished that, and managed to alienate the entire tour playing behind him... 😁😂😁

 

 Ah, yes. 2:10 for an 8 footer is absolutely riveting, edge-of-the-seat stuff.

Others replied, but… you're nuts if you think that taking 2:15 to hit a 9' Putt is acceptable.

 

🤷‍♀️

I was thinking more about right now, after the fact. Almost comical, if that behavior didn’t give a “pass” to slow play 🥺

Golf Digest times Bryson DeChambeau in Round 1 of the Tour Championship.

Interesting read.  It categories his shot types into tee, approach, short-approach, and putting--and gives his average times for each (with outliers).  Of course this is a small field with 2-player groups, on what they describe as a very straight-forward course, so group-times were likely about as fast as they get.  Still, I'd like to have known his group's time relative to the others.

The biggest infraction came on the ninth green. Facing a 36-foot uphill birdie putt, DeChambeau took two minutes and 41 seconds from marking his ball to contact. His putt went six feet by, and even though he watched Reavie for 50 seconds, it didn't appear like he started to look at his comeback line until after Reavie's birdie attempt was struck. Another minute ensued before DeChambeau was off the green.

If the tour officials are afraid to penalize slow players like DeChambeau then they need to allow their plying partners to self police them. it’s got to affect more players than the ones that have already have spoke up. I mean you get into a rhythm and then you have to wait for someone all day long? Rediculous!

Yep. BD is a total douchebag. Really need to see him get penalized. Then we’ll see for sure if he has any redeeming qualities.

    • You are absolutely correct on your first point. the wrist and elbow will bend, so the path of the swing is not an exact circle it is a combination of the circumferences of three circles whose centres are the wrist, elbow and sternum respectively. The example i gave above above is simplified but is close enough to make no difference.  The speed difference that Mike Malaska shows above is directly related to the length of the path of the tip of the speed stick. It says nothing about how that speed is generated. In your second point, Acceleration is not relevant. Acceleration is  a function of speed, not the other way around. Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of speed between two points It is a calculated result of speed, which is itself a calculated result of two measured variables: distance and time. The speed is clearly not constant through the swing as it goes from 0 to impact speed. Acceleration may or may not be constant throughout the path, The speed at impact is the speed at impact and it is completely independent of the acceleration profile between top of the backswing and impact I am going to go back to the simplified driver example. Yes I know its not exactly a golf swing but it is close enough to explain the point. For a circle with a 67" radius (22" arms and 45" clublength) the circumferance is 2*pi*r in this case its 421". if we take the swing from top of back swing to impact, that is half the circumference which is 210.5". If the swing takes 0.25 seconds to complete from the top, then it takes 0.125 to go from top to impact. (Again this may vary slightly based on tempo, but I think its a reasonable approximation for the purpose of this example.) So the two measured variables are distance: 210" and time 0.125 seconds and we make the reasonable assumption that the club is not moving at the top of the backswing: (initial speed =0). Speed = initial speed + distance /time. The speed of the clubhead at impact is 0 + 210.5"/0.125 seconds = 0.003322083 miles / 0.000034722 hours = 95.7 mph. From these values we can also calculate the average acceleration of the club from top to impact. it is 95-0 miles per hour. divided by 0.125 seconds or 0.000034722 hours. That give a pretty impressive 2755468.8mp(h)^2  If you wanted to look at acceleration between smaller distances along the path, you would have to measure the distances & measure the time between them. you can then calculate the speed and acceleration at various points along the swing. This as you know can be and is done using high speed cameras.
    • It the heads and grooves are still in good shape, then go ahead. If you want to keep costs down and you are good for standard shaft length, look for a set of "pulls"; if you want say, Dynamic Gold S300's, lots of those around fairly cheap. They would probably have decent grips on them already.
    • One happened on the 13th hole. The "way out" was a shot that would have put me in real thick rough or if I caught it a little too firm would have put me out of bounds, and the other way would have gone into another bunker, so I took the 2 stroke unplayable lie in a bunker penalty and dropped behind the bunker, pitched on and one putted. Yeah, these shots are just horrid.  Normally, I try to get it out, nothing fancy.
