Kind of funny, if true, that they're getting out of the long drive game considering they're offering the new drivers in "LD Spec"

Nobody cares about long drive comp. 

 

Hence why KB is trying to get on the tours somehow.

 

And yes i wouldnt doubt KBs deal with Cally was limited. Maybe down to even just 'rep pricing' and nothing really free except some cool stuff at Callaway HQ once a year.

 

Through Bryson, Cobra probably hooked it up big time. It makes sense for Cobra, too. They're kinda in his wheelhouse of eccentricity; his style and his swing.

Edit: BTW, he's a long drive champion, not just "some dude BDC hangs out with". Show some respect.

Pump the brakes TDub. IT was a joke. And yeah it’s long drive, so meh.

Cobra banking on Kyle to be the new Rickie, since Rickie ain't cutting the mustard anymore. I bet they devise a flatbrim hat with built in long blonde hair for Kyle followers. 🤙

The last line is nearly as agressive as Bryson's line off the tee on the 6th @ Bay Hill.

He's also the reigning World Long Drive champ from 2020.

Could be however at this point the Callaway website still shows quite a few players (13) for their Long Drive staff.

Good point, I was just speculating with it really. Maybe cutting their budget now that Golf Channel has dropped the world long drive. Would imagine Kyle and Joe are two of the bigger names they had therefore maybe expecting more $$$

Kyle Berkshire has been around for a while, I am pretty surprised many of you hadnt heard of him before.

 

"After reaching the semifinals at the Volvik World Long Drive Championship in 2017, Berkshire in 2018 earned his first World Long Drive victory, winning at the WinStar Midwest Slam (Oklahoma). He also was the runner-up to Justin James at the Tennessee Big Shots benefiting Niswonger Children's Hospital in August 2018, which aired live on Golf Channel. He also claimed the world record on mph when he hit 228 mph in 2019 to advance to final. On August 12, 2019, Berkshire won the Tennessee Big Shots long Drive Competition with a drive of 409 yards."

 

He's no slouch and if you watch some of the videos with him, hes a freak and smashes the ball. His game isn't all bad, I'm not sure hes PGA tour quality, but he isn't some long drive hack.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
