What's up with Bryson?


Recommended Posts

After his last debacle at the Masters, he's since withdrew from the RBC and has gone stealth mode on social media. Nothing on his IG since Masters Friday.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on?

He gave IT a call they told him to try the hard restart.

I think Augusta highlighted some of his weaknesses. His distance control and spin control with his irons is an issue. Augusta also seems to reward players who have great “feel” for the game. Players who are more artists than technicians, if you will. The lack of a green reading book seemed to throw him for a loop. 
 

All those things need to be addressed—if he is capable of doing that.

Bryson approaches golf as a math problem.  when the course or conditions defy his math....he gets frustrated/ angry.

I believe this more the reason than anything.  There are simply going to be some course layouts/conditions that will favor Bryson when he's on and really punish him when he's not.  I've stated before that, while the Hulk thing is entertaining, I think it will be short lived. The body is going to send him a payment due on that amount of wear n' tear.

I wish they’d all outlaw them, but I’m under no illusion that’ll happen. The time many pros take to read before putting is appalling.

Gee, I dunno, sure looks pretty violent to me.  Keep in mind how much he practices... very high duty cycle factor.  Let's just say if he was a used car, I'd stay well clear 🙂.

That’s what they said about Tiger, until his body broke down. It wasn’t running that caused his back problems. If anything DeCham’s swing is more violent than Tiger’s ever was. No point in arguing now, time will tell.

Violent doesn’t necessarily mean it puts stress and strain on the body. Chris Como is a biomechanics specialist and he works hand in hand with all of Bryson’s team. His body is working efficiently with the swing.

Tiger literally said running was the cause of his injuries. Also his swing and the impact on his bracing of the left leg at impact wasnt helping. All of this is well documented in interviews 

There have been other coaches who have talked about tigers swing changes and how his iron swing compared to his driver swing during some of this swing changes he had different movement patterns and his release was a cause for strain on his back as well. They get into the compensations and how that impacts strain and stress on various parts of the body in a swing. Combine those with the stresses from the amount of running and they type of training he was doing with the Seals is going to equal a beat up body.

Seriously? Why do you think I mentioned running? I know what he said, like he’s going to admit golf was a factor in his back injuries. There are others who dispute Tiger’s self diagnosis if you care to look. And there were all sorts of experts in Tigers heyday who said back injuries would be almost inevitable, disc herniation and degenerative disk disease.

And the correlation between back injuries and golf is far better documented, for pros and amateurs alike, few who had such an aggressive swing.

But you’re free to believe otherwise...

glad you can interpret tigers intentions and translate them into real speak.

There’s certain types of swings that are going out more stress on the back than others and those swings happen to be the modern day swing especially the ones that got into hip restriction for better torque and power. Tigers swing as a kid and his early days as a pro his swing wasnt going to be the issue. 
 

Like it or not the amount of running he did early on combined with the Seal training he did later on caused his knee problems. The problems with the knee led to compensations that then caused his back to have issues.

Tiger was killing his back with is swing in the early years. It got better with the swing changes but the Foley swing he started using killed his back again. The restricted hip turn swing is terrible for your back. See Jason Day, Rory, Justin Rose, etc. ...

Once you fuse a segment. Segments above and below have to make up with it. No matter what he did, continuing to play golf at a high level made it inevitable that his back would continue to be a problem over the course of time. Playing on one leg when he tore his ACL with the tibial Plateau fracture couldn’t have been good for his back either with increased stress.
