Did Golf Just Get Better OR Worse?

Why did the U.S. Open at Winged Foot Feel like an 80’s Rock Song? 

If you need a pick me up this Monday, then tune into Bon Jovi - Bryson you give golf a bad name… Just Kidding Watch…

Ok, Yes… I give Bryson a hard time most of the time. Well more like all the time. But when credit is due, Bryson Dechambeau, congratulations on your 2020 victory at Winged Foot! 

Bryson did something that most people thought was impossible, crazy, and did not fit into the game of golf.  Including me!  Let’s recap on what Bryson does that is not currently the normal practice in golf. 

  1. ARM LOCK PUTTING 

  2. SINGLE LENGTH IRONS (6 IRON LENGTH)

  3. TENNIS RACKET LOOKING GRIPS

  4. HITTING DRIVER AS FAR AS HE CAN

  5. CHANGING HIS BODY TO HIT THE BALL FURTHER 

  6. PAINTER STYLE FRENCH HAT

  7. METAL SPIKES IN HIS GOLF SHOES

  8. AFTER WINNING THANKING HIS SPONSORS LIKE HE IS A NASCAR DRIVER

  9. USES SCIENCE AND BIG WORDS TO PLAY GOLF

  10. LISTEN TO THE ALOHA PRESS YOUTUBE SHOW TO GET MORE TAKES ON BRYSON. 


Bryson went on to defy the odds and BROKE all the rules at the 2020 U.S. Open. The USGA absolutely punished these players this week with the tall rough, tight fairways, and fast greens (except on Thursday). Bryson hit only 23 of 56 fairways during the week and ranked 26 in fairways hit.  But Bryson ranked #1 in strokes gained!  


But… Is there an asterisk next to this U.S. Open?  The fanless event seemed as dull as some of the other events this year post pandemic.  It did not help that the TV crews were pointing out the grandstands in peoples’ backyards.  We will see next year when the U.S. Open returns to one of my favorite public golf courses: Torrey Pines South in San Diego.  We will see if Bryson can handle the chirps from the fans! 

In Other Golf News…

-Matthew Wolff made his second major championship start at the age of 21 and made a top 5 at the PGA Championship and a solo 2 at the U.S. Open.  How good is Wolff going to be? 

-Winged Foot stood the test of a major championship and I thought the restoration was unique.  It was cool to see a squared off green complex with giant slopes and bowls! 



Television Coverage…

Did anyone else miss Joe Buck this week?  NBC earlier this year took over the rights for the U.S. Open coverage from Fox Sports.  

I felt NBC did an okay job, but I do miss Fox.  Fox brought so many unique aspects to last year's Open at Pebble.  

  • Bunker Cam

  • Drone footage 

  • Microphones in the cups

  • Shane Bacon

  • Joe Buck


Bryson Isn’t the Only One Who Can Hit It Far! 


Ahh Paul Casey what are you doing up there?

Things You Might Have Missed…

-Tiger and Phil both missed the cut and did not look great.  I hope they can turn it around for the Fall Masters.

- Danny Lee 6 putted on the 18th hole on Saturday. But no one saw it.  NBC decided not to show the absolute mental cry baby winey golfer.  The video did not come to light until Sunday Morning.  Danny Lee ended up withdrawing from the event sighting his butt hurt, I mean a wrist injury.  WATCH IT HERE..


After Bryson completed his U.S. Open victory, many players commented on his game.  Rory explained he thinks Bryson is taking advantage of the rules of golf.  Specifically, the arm lock putting stroke.
