DeChambeau's bizarre wedges

Recommended Posts

We get it: he does everything weird. But if you're interested in a nice deep dive into the rationale behind this odd-ball looking wedge, check out this article: https://www.pgatour.com/equipmentreport/2019/03/06/golf-equipment-clubs-bag-wedges-bryson-dechambeau-custom-cobra-wedges-why-they-work.html

And he just did this with one of them!

 

 

Be right back: off to go weld stuff to the back of my wedges.

Might need a new shaft too.  And a "frickin' laser beam".  For science.

Already a step ahead of you: I've got the laser. I use it for putting. And aligning the SkyTrak. And annoying the dog. For science, I mean.

@GolfSpy Stroker:  hey, check out these new custom forged Miura wedges I got!

@GolfSpy MPR:  that's nice, but I just welded the back of an old Wilson R90. And then angle grinded for a bit.

He just needs to weld a compass and barometer  onto the top of it and he"s good to go.🤣

He has been chipping a lot better lately.

I'm pretty sure I've passed over a couple of hundred clubs that look just like at yard sales...

Seriously though, that article is fascinating...I wonder if that extra heel weight is an issue for all one length wedges or just him because of the level he's at?

Pretty sure he could hide a doppler radar in there if he wanted to.  @GolfSpy MPR might be another thing for you to add onto yours.  For science.

That's crazy. Surprised they're legal. Just seems like that type of manipulation/change would be illegal.

My first thought seeing this club was, “How is that legal?”

More power to him if it meets the proper guidelines. Hope more pros start embracing “weird” things in the bag.

Don't knock it, those propellors will help with judging the wind. Haha.

Remember when the 1996 Tour Players Faxon was cutting edge?

Being a fly on the wall for club work with Bryson would be wildly interesting. Everything would probably sound so crazy, but is it really crazy if it works?

I appreciate how he is willing to go against common practice and truly customize what works best for him. I'm curious if some of what he's learned on the wedges gets carried over to any other irons. 

Fun read and interesting stuff about how they approached building this club.
