DeChambeau & the Hat  

24 members have voted

  1. 1. On a scale of one (1) to ten (10), how do you feel about DeChambeau and the hat.

    • 1 - It doesn't bother me. If it bothers you, you're just a jealous 18 handicapper.
    • 4 - Who am I to judge? The guy is on a roll and golf needs more personality.
    • 7 - Not going to lie, it is a bit irritating, and I know all I need to know about DeChambeau from that hat.
    • 10 - I'd rather watch a Caitlyn Jenner documentary on re-run than see Dechambeau's hat one more GD time.

Maybe it's just me, but I watched DeChambeau at the NCAA championships and found myself constantly annoyed by him. Now he's resurfacing. I'm sure 90% of it was the hat. Maybe his swing. I'd be curious to get peoples feedback on the like-ability of this guy...

well the family names sound of a francophone origin so the beret is appropriate and probably a personal touch.

 

it could be a US navy seal thing though :)

I voted for 1, but I'm not gonna call you a jealous 18 handicapper.  The hat doesn't bother me so much.  Now, as for the above pic and the seemingly smug look on his face...

I like that he's brainy and contrarian, but he's not on tour yet. Judging by his quotes in a recent press conference, which I haven't seen, so disclaimer, he shouldn't get ahead of himself, despite how bright his future looks. Don't have an opinion on his personality, but rooting for him mainly because of his swing.

You've gotta admit, it's pretty much a douche-bag hat. Only other professional golfer who wore one in the modern era was Payne Stewart, by most accounts a grade A douche-bag.

To be honest, I'm going to be somewhere between a 7 and a 10...That hat screams douchery. It bothers me because I'm a shallow and hateful man.

BTW I saw a guy at the FREAKING GYM the other day wearing a hat like that.

Pro golfers don't wear them because you can't put a big logo on the front to pay the bills.(pun intended)

Personally, I am not big on style affectations like the 'old school' hat, Rickie's 'hip' trucker hat, Patrick Reed's Tiger imitation, or Payne Stewart's plus knickerbockers.

What they wear doesn't distracts me from the quality of their golf or make me dislike them, though.

 

@colin007 re. the hat at the gym. Give a guy a break, I'm very self-conscious about my bald spot. Kudos for 'owning' your shallow hatefulness. :-P

He's only a physics major. They teach physics in high school! :-)

It doesn't bother me. The guys who don't wear hats because they still have all their hair bother me! :-D

    • I had the same issue with my left elbow, physiotherapist treatment worked for me to reduce the pain. Then strengthen the forearms and wrists, I'm stronger and pain free and enjoy hitting a golf ball, I looked online for golf stretch and strengthen exercises and now have a routine that helps me. Good luck...
    • I like the KBS out of the two you mentioned, but a lot of variables to consider so I think a trip to a professional fitter is the best suggestion I got...
    • I guess it's not extremely "unconventional" but I think many parts of the swing goes against some of the more "standard" teachings, or at least what I see on Youtube (forgive me I'm still relatively new to golf). Some of the differences of this upright/2-plane type of swing, according to the Jim Hardy 2-plane swing vs more "standard" golf teachings: Using more of the arms to generate power, rather than the body Having less depth at the top of the backswing Being slightly across-the-line at the top of the backswing Having a more open club face coming down Less body and hip openness at impact Of course not every "upright swinger/2-planer" adopts all of the above, but those are the things that Jim Hardy mentioned in his book and I'm trying to follow it as I don't have any other guide.
