Bryson Wins. Is That Bad?

I was rooting against Bryson. Bryson is just so big, muscular and athletic that it is hard for most average golfers to related to. His swing is also not pretty to look at. Obviously it worked for him. I am really surprised to find out that many golfers drove longer than Bryson in the tournament.

I like Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and golfers with smaller stature that amateurs can related to.

I can’t relate to any tour player. I’d have a much better shot at bulking up than playing golf the way any of them do.

The fact that an average golfer can't relate to them is a silly reason to root against someone IMO. Keeping that logic consistent you should be rooting against every player on tour then.

But when you look at strokes gained off the tee, which combines distance and accuracy, he was second only to Rory.

Again, that logic doesn't make sense to me. I'm quite a bit taller and bigger than both of them and I still can't relate to them because they hit it further, straighter, and more consistent than I ever will.

I got pissed at myself one day on the range from this flipping mess. I took the club in my trail hand and bent back my wrist and just hit dozens of balls one handed. Then I just placed my lead hand on flat without gripping and hit a few more dozen. All slowly and focused. Try this.

There can be other things that are relatable than just skill set.  I have a friend who relates to Rory because they both like Domino's pizza, loaded.

Legit Rory's worst trait IMO is his taste in pizza. 🤮

Living in Ireland and Florida doesn't lend itself to knowing much about pizza.

Try it with the other hand.

I think more people can relate to the fat one.

I'm betting his biggest fan is Patrick Reed.

This makes complete sense.

The final group of the U.S. Open should be a comfortable spot for both Patrick Reed and Bryson DeChambeau.

The only things I dont like about him is his pace of play and general attitude.

Hes not the only one either but i wish the arm lock putting style wasnt allowed personally. JMO

He isn’t one of my favorite golfers but I don’t root against him. He does something’s I wish he wouldn’t, most of which have been mentioned already, like a lot of golfers do. What I do like is that he is truly following his path. He has an idea of what he thinks will give him the best chance to win and is all in with it. I wish more people would do that and not just in golf. Cut what is your issue with the armlock putting?

So many have relocated from NY to Fla., I'm sure it isn't too hard to find good pizza.

    • The younger generation equivalent of this is probably 15 signs you watch too much golf on Instagram/TikTok, but it kind of doesn't make sense because the videos are so short.
    • Okay, I was just trying to spare us all the slideshow. But, I'll be sure to include the link in the future. 
    • So you can do what you did and add head weight to counter the grip weight. You can find lighter midsize grips, which obviously isn't always a viable option. You can also find shafts with more tip heavy balance points. You could also add a little length to the club to get that weight back. All these options have pros and cons. My personal feeling on SW is that it's mainly about getting a consistent feel through your irons and wedges. I don't care about matching woods, hybrids, putters to an iron SW. Most important for me is a smooth weight progression through the set so each club is getting heavier moving from driver to wedges. The simplest option is start out with just the new grips and no additional weight at the tip. Use whatever iron you want, and hit some balls with impact stickers, foot spray powder, dry erase marker on balls, launch monitor, etc, to look at your impact pattern. Then start adding some lead tape to the back and repeat the process. At some point you should find your consistency is at it's best and adding or taking away weight from that point is detrimental. Then just add the same amount to the rest (remembering head weight influences longer clubs more than shorter so you may want to shave a gram or two off in the longer irons vs. the shorts). Only other thing to look out for if you add weight to the clubs is how you hit them at the end of the round when you are tired compared to the start of the round. Most people can handle an 130g shaft for the first 5-10 swings, but not necessarily by the end of the round.
    • Have you ever gotten a club fitting? I also launch the ball lower than ideal and part of that is my swing, part of that was the shaft I was playing. I wonder if changing to a higher lofted driver will cause you to hit the ball with more spin and you wouldn't see any gains in distance.
