    Thanks didn't know that.

      I'm tired of announcers talking ad nauseum..... And the fact he is so slow, makes it very difficult to watch.

        DeChambeau’s Cobra King Utility prototype is a hollow construction (as are most utility irons) designed to provide face flex similar to a driver. As such, there are times when metal fatigue will set in and fail. It is not unusual for PGA Tour players to have drivers crack and when you swing as fast as Bryson, utility irons apparently aren’t spared, either.
        => I thought there was a new rule that allows you to replace a broken club? Guessing he didn't have a spare 4 iron in the locker. Maybe he'll have replacement club everything in the future.



        I like what Bryson brings to the game....he's challenging ppl in many ways and showing many that maybe what was (variable length) should change to (one length). Pros who have played variable length for a long long time are unlikely to adopt one length but never say never as can be evidenced by long putters, large head drivers etc. My guess is Bryson will not be the only player in the future to go with One Length irons as the technology improves and newer players perhaps start with One Length.

        At the beginning all of the announcers kept harping on his wedges being too long to work and while I was listening to the more recent broadcast they're aren't mentioning it much anymore and his short game is improving as he spends more time on that vs spending time on his driver. One thing that ppl may not be aware of is longer wedges means more club head speed which translates into high trajectory and even more spin if needed which is not a bad thing on faster/firmer greens.
        Although I don't play one length, being a single plane swinger I explored options after seeing Bryson's success and have gone in a compressed length iron set which is awesome. He's making the golf world think differently about things.

              DeChambeau's current nickname is 'The Show?'

              Even that is boring and lacks imagination.

              I do like watching him hit driver and pound it a mile.

                We had Figjam for Phil.

                Now we have for Bryson:

                  For your information:

                  Rule 4.1a(2) prohibits the replacement of a damaged club if the damage was caused by the player.
                  Rule 4.1a(3) permits replacement if the damage was caused by someone or something else.
                  Model Local Rule G-9 may be in place. It modifies Rule 4.1a(2) by allowing the replacement of a broken or significantly damaged club but a crack is not considered significant damage.

                  You can continue playing with a club damaged during a round no matter who or what caused the damage.

                    He actually used the rule very recently

                    To me it seems unusual it was a local rule for the PGA Championship but not for other tourneys. He didn't abuse the club so he should be able to replace it.
