Henrik Stenson shot an 85 on Thursday....  This is an Open Champion... and he shot EIGHTY FIVE I thought this from his coach was pretty telling: “Between us, we’ve confused his mind try

Well lately I have became a Bryson fan---- Really I never pulled real hard or against anyone for that matter since the Nicklaus/ Seve days. LOL yep the 86 Masters final round was tough. But I like Bry

Viktor Hovland for me. Kid is so fun to watch play and always looks like he’s having fun.

I had been wondering about this very thing. Rory is long enough and would be wise not to fall into the chase Bryson trap. I am still of the opinion that Bryson's ball mauling stroke will have a limited shelf life. 
Listening to Rory's interview he did mention that people are not giving enough credit to Bryson for his ability to get out of the thick rough.  He also attributed some of that to his longer short irons (one length) and the ability to generate more speed with them.  Great point... I hadn't even thought about the one-length factor.


I listened to Rory’s interview while working out this morning and I must say that I was stunned. I guess that’s the difference between the mentality of a touring pro and athletes in other sports. Could you imagine Lawrence Taylor saying, “So they’re going to block me with tackles, I’m going to have to get bigger and stronger?” He was saying, “Better bring a tight end and fullback too because I’m going to kick all their butts.”

In golf you need to look at the data, analyze it and say, “Here’s my weakness either I can work around it or I need to improve in that area.” Distance and ball striking have always been a strength for Rory, to think he’d chase distance because a guy win a US Open is ridiculous. Was he watching Jordan Spieth the last 3 seasons or not?

Most guys on tour are long enough, top 1/3 I distance has always been long enough.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Good points.  Plus, middle of the pack and even short hitters win their share of events.  That said, it's easy to understand how these guys get sucked into the long drive chase... whether we care to admit it or not, it is in our DNA.

He's been rounding into form since last year and has long been considered one of the best players never to win a major🏌️‍♂️

Totally agree, that's a great insight I hadn't thought about before either. Some of the announcers have also mentioned how the steepness of his swing helps him out of the rough as well. A few months back I remember watching a Crossfield video saying that when he's in the rough he swings steeper to minimize how much grass the clubhead interacts with before the ball. Is that a pretty common concept good players use out of the rough? If it's easier with a steeper swing out of the rough, are there any major downsides to just always swinging steeper so you don't need to swing differently when you're in the roughh vs out of it?

Hoping this will be a benefit I'll see from the new v-soles... when I finally get them 😕.

I didn't take Rory's comments as a chase for distance but a chase for more speed.  The benefit he saw at the US Open was his play out of rough;  more speed and steeper AoA minimized the penal nature of the rough.

Actually, it’s because I replaced him on my fantasy team after missed cuts. If I replaced Xander, he’d probably win five in a row.

Fascinating process.  What disappoints me is no matter if it is a PGA Championship tournament or my local muni, they never put those in where my ball goes.
