Bryson DeChambeau - Oy

Think I've seen Bryson wearing wireless earphones on the practice tee. Maybe he needs to wear them during play. In regards to his swing on the final round at the FedEx/St Jude, he seemed to have looser wrists at the top of his swing than he had before. More lag, and as hard as he swings, this could be the reason for his wayward shots. Not a fan of Bryson, but he does get a lot of people willing to watch.

You’re probably just kidding, but I’ll be that guy …

He’s a douche, but the fans have to stop and let them play golf. I have no problem with the slow play warning. 

I agree. Not to justify it, but the ‘heckling’ that I’ve read about, not witnessed, is far less than many current athletes endure and pales in comparison to what earlier players endured. Hell Hale Irwin got a death threat and still won I believe. Bottom line for me…they’re all a bit soft now.

Agreed... and nevertheless, we go to the golf course for peace, quietude, a place to get away from the daily grind of life and the perfectly timed striking of a beautiful golf shot.  Whether your Sunday round with buds or a pro golf tournament.  No noise.  Golf is not like other sports.  Thank goodness!

You’re all worthless and weak! Drop and give me 20!!

Must be a new rule. Richard Zokol (aka Disco Dick) won the Greater Milwaukee open in 1982 wearing headphones and listening to music during play.

This is from the PGA Tour Players Handbook for a year or two back, 2019-2020

"Mobile and other electronic devices are prohibited for all purposes on the golf course for use by players and caddies unless approved by the Rules Committee. In addition to being considered conduct unbecoming a professional, the use of such devices (or accessing certain types of data from such devices) may also be a violation of the Rules of Golf."

https://qualifying.pgatourhq.com/static-assets/uploads/2019-2020-pga-tour-handbook--regs-09_10_19.pdf

Rule 4.3a(4) says you cannot listen to music in order to eliminate distractions or help swing tempo.

I'll happily give you 20 pushups, but not 20 strokes.

I’m just trying to imagine BD telling Trevino, Nicklaus, Woods, Elder, Thorpe, hell…Garcia…that ‘ the gallery is being mean and calling me Brooksy’

Well, Trevino would have had some fun with that.  "Hey Brooksy, you just need to swoop your club outside on the backswing like this..."

I can't speak for 1982.  But from my iPhone version of the 2018 RoG (yes, somehow it still transferred over to my iPhone 12). The circumstances are important (the decision included two more paragraphs I didn't quote below), but in this context it also violated the 2018 rules.

Quote

Decision 14-3/17

Player Listens to Music or Broadcast During Round

Q. A player uses a device to listen to music, a radio broadcast or any other type of broadcast during a stipulated round. What is the ruling?

A. Under Rule 14-3a, a player may not use any artificial device or unusual equipment that “might assist him in making a stroke or in his play.” Listening to music or a broadcast while making a stroke or for a prolonged period might assist the player in his play, for example, by eliminating distractions or promoting a good tempo. Therefore, the use of an artificial device to listen to music or a broadcast, whether or not through headphones, while making a stroke or for a prolonged period of time during a stipulated round is a breach of Rule 14-3. However, it would not be a breach of Rule 14-3 for a player to listen to a device briefly, for example, to obtain the results of another sporting event or traffic information, while walking between the putting green of one hole and the teeing ground of the next hole.

There's no specific indication as to whether listening to music or even using headphones might be "distracting" to other players or if specific music might be considered "disrespectful conduct" to another player in the group, with all of the attendant consequences. (Sorry, wrong thread.) :whistle:

Perhaps Bryson just needs to find a caddy with a nice singing voice to sing to him during the round...😁

    • Played Umstead with my brother again today.  I shot 40-42 for a solid 82. The front was consistent, four bogeys and five pars. A par on the par-5 ninth was a bit disappointing since I was on the fringe in two with about a 15-footer for eagle, but it is what it is. On the back I made two doubles on 15 (jail on approach shot) and 16 (drive hooked OB) but otherwise solid: five pars and two bogeys. So I was able to keep huge numbers off the card for the most part. It was a fun day. My brother also reached a milestone today: he went 46-43 for 89 and broke 90 for the first time! He only had one really bad hole (tripled 5), and a birdie on 10 jumpstarted him. It was fun to watch! I’m playing Hillandale with a buddy tomorrow morning, so stay tuned! 
    • I just sent these into Evolvr, so I'm not asking for comment, so much as using this thread as a swing diary whenever I remember to do so.   and  
    • Day 121.  I did fifteen minutes of the step-turn-step-turn drill and ten minutes of full swings (all with a 6-iron) indoors before heading out to a nearby course to get some video at the range for Evolvr. 
    • Day 1: 07/04/2022 Made it to the range yesterday and worked through a small bucket of balls. I was working on getting hands down quicker and getting club on a more shallow plane. The hands are looking better but could still be more shallow. Hitting probably 95% off the toe which I think may be due to not rotating enough in downswing. I've tried to slow down hips in an effort to catch hands/arms up but need to work on incorporating both back into the swing. 
    • Yeah, my busy season at work ran unexpectedly later into the year but it should be over now so even though I've only played like the or four rounds this year, hoping to massively increase that figure. Hope things get better for you soon!
