    I wonder when his cobra contract is up?

    This.

    He's going to look good with a bag full of PXG.

    Wonder if PXG will make him wear that goofy hat.

    Do you have a source on this? or are you just guessing like me?

    I would have thought it would be fairly easy for PXG to dial in a set of clubs for him. They have a bunch of models with varying CG, launch, COR etc. Plus they can adjust weight, launch and CG with those screws.

    But will PXG want him to use their woods and putters too? I wouldn't necessarily want to do that.

    Bryson question here. I know he studied Physics but does anyone know if he graduated with a degree? Thx.

    He did not. I would actually be very interested in seeing his transcripts. I know he was a Physics major, but how many classes did he take towards that major??

    He made it through 3 years. He was a junior when he turned pro I believe. If that is all true then he would have taken at least 3 calculus classes and partial differential equations, a couple of math methods for physics classes, and around 6 physics classes including your basic freshman physics w/labs, modern physics (touches on relativity, quantum, etc...), mechanics, electricity and magnetism. Senior year would be quantum, thermodynamics, and then likely a couple of physics electives. Bryson is a sharp guy. You don't pass those kinds of classes and play golf if you aren't pretty smart.

    No doubt that he is a smart kid, but he is hardly a scientist. The "mad scientist" references get a bit old to me.

    The authority on scientists has spoken

    Well, 'authority' may be a bit strong, but you are not entirely inaccurate.

    I would say he is a scientist in the sense that he uses scientific methods in his approach to golf (and maybe everything else). He is not, however, a physicist which IMO pretty much requires a PhD.

    We all utilize scientific methodology whether we are aware of it or not. +1 on the PhD.

    Is there a literal line to cross to gain the title “ scientist “. Real question.

    What's up, man? I hope you're well. Typically, the term 'scientist' is reserved for a person holding a terminal degree in a field (PhD, MD, DO, DC, DDS, etc), is conducting research to broaden the knowledge of a subject, and is contributing to the literature.

    Guess I need to sell my Cobra One Length irons and buy PXG now.

  • tbowles411tbowles411 ClubWRX Posts: 25,355 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I know it's all speculation so I'll join in! LOL

    It would make sense if PXG were to machine him some irons eventually. If anyone could pull off the single length thing, it would be PXG because they can work the weighting any way they want and slap as many tungsten screws as they need to, to get it right. If Bob Parsons wanted to, he could totally pull away Bryson totally and get the one length thing down. Money is a tool and he's got plenty of it. However, Cobra has invested so much into him at the One Length thing, I don't see them letting him go easily unless it's an obscene number a year.

    I agree. I think PXG could really appeal to his "science" and "technical" side and really be a pretty good fit for him. I think that would mean that sik would be out as well as I am sure PXG would get him a one off armlock putter. I also, think cobra would fight to keep that from happening but, honestly PXG makes sense as a sponsor for Bryson.

    I believe he made the switch to help with the weighting of the clubs. Have you seen the wedges he used to play with because of the one lengths? They had weld all over them and looked like crap to compensate for the extra weight

    @Golfjack said:
    I like the easier to add weight idea since his wedges are probably super long. See how in the picture they are basically the same length in bag compared to his one length irons. PXG probably screwed in some real dense weights to make the swing weight right. I didn't realize even his wedges were same length.

    Actually probably just the opposite. Longer clubs would increase swing weight. Those clubs would feel like sledgehammers unless you reduced weight. Probably replaced all screws with aluminum or plastic.

    Eh, I took a bunch of physics electives alongside my computer science major stuff as I was interested in video game development - this was in the 90s so that's what you looked at if you wanted to do any cool programming work eventually.

    Considering my dumb **** did alright, I can tell you from experience one doesn't need to be a genius to get far in physics. :D

    Yes, I know. But, his constant tinkering with his wedges is effectively saying that his concept isn't working on it's own. He had his Cobras covered with a mound of lead tape, and he admitted that he had to use a different hand position for his chips. He's got way too much height and spin, and his attempt to flight them down is just making the problem worse. Those of us who play single length clubs understand the problem well. Personally, I carry a standard length SW, and I'm ready to add a standard length GW, as well.

    I meant that he had weld all over them to make up the extra weight needed for his setup. So instead of adding a bunch more weight through weld he could add the weight through the screws and get it more precise than adding weld and then having to grind it off to get the weighting right

    Oh I get you know.. As I have demoed dingle length irons I find that the top and bottom of the set have issues. I Think a shaft company like Fuji needs to design a composite shaft specifically for single length. I think that is the only way that you could make a set playable. With composite you can be very specific on flight, weighting, kickpoint, etc. I dont see how you can really do it by taking normal shafts and appropriating them to single length.

    If that happened I think I would give it a try.

    I don’t know Any better than the next guy, but did Cobra have full tour truck at tournament in Minnesota that week? Maybe Bryson wanted some sole or SW changes done based on practice rounds, and PXG had only tour truck to accommodate those changes because challenges of one length concept? IMO this is the simpliest explanation.

    Wishon would tell you that the shaft flex/kickpoint/etc won’t make that much difference at his 37.5” playing length. Shaft weight and length will though.

    Bryson’s game doesn’t really translate to whether SL works or not for the amateur golfer, IMO. He’s playing for massive checks and desires any edge he can get.

    However, his old wedges seemed to work just fine when he had his winning streak.

    Does he even have a four year college degree?

    3 years of school at SMU. Majored in physics which implies at least a minor in math.

    So he’s obviously a smart dude but he didn’t follow through and complete his education which is disappointing. I understand the whole argument of getting out early and making money etc. etc. But some things such as an education are priceless. I know I know, he could always go back and finish if he wants to but it’s just not the same.

    OB and water hazards you flunkies

    His case was a little different. SMU golf was put on probation by the NCAA for what would have been his senior year. He would have still had his scholarship, but not able to play collegiate golf. So he turned pro.

    Regardless, he's smarter than us and whatever he's doing works. Between the Golfing Machine way of swinging a club and the one length thing, it translates that we'll see him on Tour for at least the next decade.

    G410 3, 5 & 9 Woods - Yonex Blue
    G410 4-5 Hybrids - UST Recoil
    G410 6-UW - Yonex Proprietary Iron Shafts
    Glide 2.0 54SS, 58 WS
    Glide 3.0 54ES, 58ES (Awaiting release) Yonex Proprietary Iron Shafts
    PING Bruzer

    I understand that you’re being kind to him when you say that BD is smarter than us, but I am not willing to concede that point.
