When I saw Bryson on the range - sorry - Practice Facilty with Vijay, a minute ago I at first thought it was another player having a joke imitating Bryson. :-)

 

Vijay looked like he was laughing. Or at the very least, amused.

Quote from an interview earlier in the week . . . “There is something in the bag this week that will be very helpful. I won’t go into specifics but it’s been a few years in the making.” What was he talking about, that funky driver?

Hit the damn ball 300 yards and wedge onto the green, putt for birdie. This 400 yard drive is ego and cause him to lose money.

If Augusta is like a par 68 for him, it's playing damn tough.

Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? Then why is it, when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine, he sounds like such a dummy? 

Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart?

That’s his schtick, isn’t it?

He studied physics at SMU. His nickname is the “Mad Scientist.” 

He can talk endlessly about training his brain to find the proper balance between the “parasympathetic and sympathetic states.”

Turns out that’s bunk.

DeChambeau is a dummy. Indeed, he is the worst kind of dummy, the kind that likes to pretend he is smart. You know the type, don’t you?

Yes, they cause the worse roadblocks and they slow things down the worst.  Why?  Because they are accepted as “smart” or “accomplished” and pontificate like they know everyone while you second guess yourself to make sure you are saying things that are accurate.   Hands down, these are the kind of people who lead to high turnover in companies.  They revel in their own enlightened opinions and it takes too long for them to drive their ignorance off a cliff sometimes.

Maybe Bryson will actually listen to Edoardo Molinari;  among other things, he has a degree (I want to say a Masters' degree;  I just checked and only confirmed he has a degree in the area) in engineering.  Not that this is an engineering discipline, but that seems to be Bryson's claims.

Bryson dropped out of SMU with no degree.

Yeah, my wording was bad.  I meant he wants to say he's more inclined to listen to scientists (although we've seen recently that isn't true in a big way), and Molinari has an engineering degree, so maybe he'll listen to Molinari.

I suppose Bryson has said and done enough controversial things, that nobody is taking a real big risk criticizing him.

Still, it is probably also the case that a guy like Molinari has less to be concerned with than certain other people. Doesn't the man play most of his golf in Europe anyway. Probably a prospective Ryder Cup teammate might sooner avoid that.

Like I've said before, having a black hat in golf is a good thing. Particularly good when that black hat is capable of being freakishly good and bad at different times. Nothing anyone says really seems to change DeChambeau. That's what I call entertainment value. Actually watched a bit this afternoon because he was doing his thing.

Well I agree with the black hat business. But the comments/attitude about being vaccinated isn’t entertaining. It’s incredibly selfish and ignorant. He apologizes for butt-hurting Cobra when he says his driver sucks but he strolls around with blind arrogance on a very important topic that affects the world.

Frankly I would put engineers ahead of scientists in the area of golf equipment design. We often use the term Rocket Scientist to describe people in that field when the majority are engineers. Even the astronauts we’ve had in the past and currently tend to have advanced engineering degrees. 

Engineering uses a lot more math in combination with science curriculum in undergraduate studies than pure science curriculum.  Engineers are no smarter than scientists, but approach problems from a different angle. We need both to study problems and create solutions. 

DeChambeau possesses none of the qualities of a good engineer or scientists. He’s a golfer who took a few physics classes.

Butt hurting Cobra could cost him money, but being stupid about Covid currently costs him nothing.   Heck, he can charter private planes if airlines get more restrictive about passengers being vaccinated.   So to an extent he can live in a bubble of ignorance that most people can’t for now.

He can infect people who may die. That’s pretty costly.

Other than the hit his “brand” takes.

    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.

    • Day 48: Worked on priority piece with 4-iron. Multiple rehearsals between balls. Focused on having a quiet swing,
