    The website seems to be working fine before that rumor gets any legs

    A WITB from a year ago is not exactly great evidence. 😉

    The LTD was a truly one of a kind driver though, i'd love to see a reboot of it.

    Every driver in his bag for this round was the same length

    I believe he did but i'm not certain. I find it interesting he's still using the LTD. It's still a great performing driver but its not like Bryson is one to shy away from experimenting with equipment.

    I heard that Bryson was actually breaking the speedzone and F9 heads with his new found strength and the LTD is a bit beefier in terms of structural integrity, guys on TXG mentioned that's what they heard from the Cobra tour guys. They did a comparison of the LTD to SZ and the numbers were pretty much the same out of the middle of the face. Can't adjust weight distribution as easily in the LTD outside of hotmelt or lead tape was the biggest difference they were calling out

    Yes, apparently he was breaking Drivers but also wanted to lower spin with his newly found speed. The LTD Driver is great for spin reduction. Obviously he could have any space port on it he wants, but that looks like the regular LTD driver (based on what looks like a silver space port). Basing on his privy to low lofted heads, I would've imagined he was surely in a pro. Obviously he may just like the silver space port better, but IMO black looks 10x better!!


    That test with the LTD against the new SpeedZone was a great test. They did say that the LTD is a heavier head and perhaps they could've gotten a couple more yards out of the SZ with some more head weight, but I wasn't surprised the LTD put up nearly identical numbers. Still is the lowest cG/most forgiving Driver ever produced (according to the cGNA test done by our friends who must not be named).

    He was. Couple pictures on Getty Images show him using it.

    TXG just said he switched because he was breaking new drivers. With all his lifting he's now too fast apparently. Interesting

    Or maybe Cobra just needs to fix the QA process.. 186mph ballspeeds shouldn't crack faces.

    They said he‘s approaching 200mph ... Let’s say he‘s about to nearly hit 195mph on quiet a few buckets...

    130 SS * 1,5 = 195 BS

    (I don’t know his exact SS right now... but I think he’s close to 130 (Maybe even higher when he goes after it))

    No he isn't hitting it 3mph faster than Cameron Champ. Here are 2 swings from last weeks WGC, both swings he was swinging out of his shoes as hard as he can..

    Wow! I'm just like DeChambeau!

    I'm playing a Cobra LTD AND I've put on 25 pounds!

    Unfortunately, my beer and burger weight gain regimen doesn't seem to have helped my ballspeed any ...

    Bryson isn't at Champ's speed quite yet. Didn't Champ average 189 ball speed last year?

    Always when I have seen him on broadcast hitting driver on a tracer hole he has had 192mph and occasionally 191 or 193.

    Great find on TXG. Can't see me investing in newer model based on all the evidence. In fact, may see what's out there on Ebay and put a second (maybe LTD Pro) in the closet...

    Pretty sure Cameron Champ was breaking Ping drivers, too... It wouldn't surprise me if Bryson was killing new SZ drivers. With these faces getting thinner and weight moving all over the place, it makes sense really at these types of speeds...

    Finding my LTD to be just as good as the G410 LST I have been experimenting with... pretty cool to see this older model hang well with the new ones.

    but the regular LTD is spinny. The Pro isn't. The funny thing is i am yet to see an LTD PRO in a pros bag..from when they were released....regular LTD mainly.

    how did they get the loft to 4.8*? Might be a special LTD for him..

    Apparently Bryson has come close to 200mph of ball speed according to one of the LD guys on instagram....
