    a US Open layout would not be suitable for a swinging-from- the -heels -strategy, haha. He's 26. Rahm is 25, Schauffele, 26. These three likely on most 'goign to win a major eventually' list.

    The list of young guns is growing tho; Wolff (21) , Morikawa (23), Hovland (22) , Im (22 ), Niemann (21). How's this for a list? all have already won on tour ! (except Hovland)

    clock ticking on Fowler.....

    final round in Motor City!!!!!!

    M Wolff -19
    R Armour -16
    B DeChambeau -16
    T Merritt -14
    S Power -14
    C Kirk -14
    M Hubbard -14


    Wollf won the 3M a yr ago, can he win PGA Title #2 before his 22 birthday? Well if he putts as he has the last 2 days good fuckin' luck beating this guy!! He has to sleep on a 3-shot lead...lets see how he handles Championship Sunday




    hits it a MILE, and has the anti- DeChambeau swing (anti-one plane swing)

    whoa... a seemingly stress free 65 for DeChambeau, he wins. Made it look easy.

    birdies 16, 17 and 18. On 18, par 4 471 yds; drive 367 yds , lob wedge to 3 feet.


    Full kudos to DeChambeau, and am sure Moe Norman would be smiling


    DeChambeau's driver average for each round;
    rd 1- 358 yds
    rd 2- 335 yds
    rd 3- 348 yds
    rd 4- 360 yds


    ...cmon...........

    If you're gonna average 360 it's pretty hard not to win - and he is an excellent putter too - on a links course - when he catches it right down the middle - he will be driving near 425 not problem

    and even with these drives his proximity stats have been really poor. That means if/when his short iron game comes around the dude will be close to unbeatable

    he entered the tourney 124th in proximity, exited in 134th. Two years ago he was 42nd....if he gets back to that level he'll break golf

    b2b tournaments starting this week in Jack's house....

    Note: Bryson won here when he averaged 295 yards off the tee in 2018. He was in a 3-way playoff with An & Stanley

    the Detroit field sucked but posting 7 top-10's in a row is pretty nuts when other tournaments had JT, Rahm, Webb, Rory, X, Reed, etc

    1st
    6th
    8th
    3rd
    4th
    2nd
    5th

    weird dude, highly unlikeable and standoffish, but if he gets his wedge game together he'll be #1

    I've had money Bryson last 4 events to win and finally cashed at Rocket Mortgage but was at a short price. I've watched him play a lot through the early rounds on NBC gold app. If he can improve his wedge game, look out. The only good wedge shot he hit over the weekend was at 18 yesterday. Also his chipping needs to be improved. He's an absolute beast though off the tee. Insane.

    If this dude keeps bombing it out there further and further...

    his caddie will have to carry a sign that says 'How's my driving?' Call this number.
    May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but the
    opportunity to do what is right.

    His record in majors is not good,and imo speaks to the mental part of his game which i touched on earlier. . Majors are entirely different animal --just ask Dustin Johnson

    Golf is too finicky to dominate, you need a special dude to do that, cue Tiger Woods. In his hey day Woods won approx 35% of tournaments entered. In his career has won 22% of tournaments.

    the difference this week wasnt really the driving, rather the flat blade. DeChambeau was fuckin solid . He putted lights yesterday .

    What is really impressive is his drive 'misses'. You swing that fast and you open the door to wild shots, misses. Not with him tho, can thank one plane swing imo-- less room for error. A Cameron Champ miss when he really lays into it? fuckin no comparison - OB lol. Also, with his brute strength (ala Koepka)-- its not as hard hitting a wedge out of rough then 7 iron. Look at the par 5,17; he had 235 from the rough-- 8 iron, lol.

    Again ,Augusta's 13,15 are really in trouble with this guy. I wonder what he does on #4

    how was DeChambeau's putting this week?

    ' DeChambeau is the first player in the ShotLink era to win an event while leading the field in both Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee and Strokes Gained: Putting.'

    drives over 350 yds at The Rocket Mortgage:

    DeChambeau- 16
    Wollf- 7
    Champ- 6

    here's the thing; DeChambeau is pulling out driver if given the chance. No way Champ is doing that, he'll hit a safe, baby 3-wood 295yds , lol.
    DeChambeau has confidence knowing his driver miss wont be an ugly miss, sooooooooooo...pull out the King Cobra Speedzone.....he GNF .....

    re post #40, check that should be 3rd hole, not the 4th. The 4th is a par 3. The 3rd is a short hole with a brutal green . According to the article, the plan maybe;

    -drive the green at 3, again brutal green
    -drive the green at 7, r close to it , very dangerous, tree lined , dead if he loses it right
    - 13; go over the trees , haha- see link , if he can he'll have a flip wedge
    -15; forget it, he'll have a 9 iron/wedge coming in


    they ain't going to be happy if he exposes Augusta

    What has been amazing so far is how accurate he is with these huge drives. He gets up there and swings as hard as he can every time, and they are all straight! It seemed like even when he missed the fairway he was just off the edge 300+ years away.

    those must be really old odds because Bryson is now 2nd fav to Rory. I doubt you can find him above +1200 now. 5D has him +1100, Tiger +1300

    h2h Bryson would be around ML -125 against Tiger at the Masters
