Latest episode of Subpar podcast, Como says he is hitting 200 with the 48 inch driver. Didn't say anything about dispersion though.

That's not yards, that's MPH. 😜

Scott Fawcett had some interesting bits on the latest How's My Hand Path podcast. He said something like when Bryson was in college or just got on tour, can't remember, he showed him two swings, his regular and something like the one we see now. So it was something he had in his bag, although probably less polished,  way back when.

211. Sick.

Doh, I saw this after I posted the pic, lol.

Apparently we are the only ones who found it interesting. Personally, I had no idea that kind of speed was possible within' the ROG.

The alternative is to let the scores go lower and keep the courses as they are. These guys work really hard to get better and better... let their hard work be rewarded with lower scores, not golf balls that don't go as far.

Exactly. Always wondered why keeping the score at or near par is a goal on the big stage. Can The PGA and the ultra private courses that host events be strictly driven by TV $$

Certainly not an issue on the publics I play. An extra 20 or 30 yards drive might get us on in regulation.

I wonder what length shaft he was using? 46? 47? Maybe he found some kind of middle ground shorter than 48?

I'd be interested in seeing a video of his power swing before he bulked up or even thought about it. There must be one somewhere.

Someone dig out the Nike "Chicks Dig the Longball" commercial.

I would think it would almost have to be a little longer than his usual one right?  That speed is just so amazing.

I suspect we'll definitely find out by the run-up to The Masters.

And it's not just the young 'uns. I am seeing instructors in their 40s and 50s inspired by BAD to swing faster. Andrew Rice. Martin Chuck. Mark Crossfield are three.

Yeah I have been following a lot of what Crossfield has been doing. It is fascinating. I'd love to try that same at some point, but at 40 now with a rebuilt wrist, I am not sure that is in the cards. I just want to keep the ball in play. 😂

Yeah, I'm tempted too, but have a wonky back and hips. No bueno here too. 😁

Check out the results from the annual long drive contest at the 10th hole of Bellerive during a practice round.

This was pre bulk up plan.  The 2 swings he had were called "the fairway finder" and "the crank."

This is recent. Dunno where or when though. Did I hear 208? I'll have what he's having, lol. I got the video from ziregolf who sourced it from (at) mikeschygolf.

His swing today looks even more pumped up compared to "the crank". Youza.

The U.S. Open champ won’t stop obsessing over something bigger than another tour victory: the perfect, repeatable swing.

    • Some work on losing the right elbow angle sooner.  At any speed right now, this feels more like I am casting the club than losing the right elbow angle. So, more work on getting what the good feel of this is. 
    • Just wanted to post an update on the state of my game. We’ve hit that time of year when I’m too exhausted after work to get quality practice in, so I haven’t been practicing. I’m not sure that’s necessarily a bad thing this year as I’ve been overdoing my piece anyway. I was worried about the lack of practice but I ended up hitting the ball pretty well (more on this later) my last time out. I’ve been hitting my driver pretty solidly. There’s still the issue of leaving the face open at impact, but I’m aiming to play a push off the tee. This way if I square the face, I’ll end up in the left rough, but if I hit a big push there’s more of a chance it stays in play. It kind of works if there’s enough room to miss right (ie there’s another hole over there). I’m hitting my irons fairly well, too. Again, I’m aiming for a push, but it’s not as pronounced as with the driver. As long as I don’t draw the ball, I’ll end up in decent shape. However, and this is what I alluded to earlier, I’m randomly topping the ball. It’s kind of weird because on any given shot I’ll either hit it like a single digit handicap or I’ll hit it like a 30. I suspect it has something to do with my trail elbow in transition but I haven’t really had the energy to work on it. Oddly enough I’ve been hitting my 3w really well but my 2h like crap, even off the tee. Might be time to replace it with a 5w. I’m going to start hitting the 3w more and see how it goes. I had some issues with contact on distance wedges, but I made an adjustment and that seems to working. I think I have to remap my distances, though.  Short game is kind of there. Some of it is mental error - wrong club or shot choice. I need to get out of the habit of using my 60° wedge for everything. I also pitch the ball better than I think I do and I should trust that, but I’m scarred from blading the ball so much earlier in the year that I’m afraid to swing through, which causes me to blade the ball or hit it short of my target. I’m actually putting pretty well. Had a bit of an issue earlier in the year on short putts, but figured out the problem and fixed it. Sometimes I’m a little lazy in reading a putt through, or I’ll get over my ball and second guess myself. Those are stupid mistakes. Thats kind of it. I’m going to try to get more practice in, but if I only have one day a week or something for golf, I’m just going to play.
    • Well, I think the countdown was remaining time until the round started. So I guess I was watching previously recorded coverage from the London tournament.
