After saying this to the media on Thursday
“The driver sucks. It’s not a good face for me. We’re still trying to figure it out how to make it good on the mis-hits, I’m living on a razor’s edge, I’ve told people for a long time”.
Bryson Dechambeau has apologised.
He currently plays with a Cobra Radspeed 46″ with 5 degrees of loft.
Cobra Operations Manager Ben Schomin had responded from America.
“Everybody is bending over backwards. We’ve got multiple guys in R&D trying this and that. It’s just really painful when he says something that stupid. It’s very rare where he’s happy. He’s swinging a driver with 5 degrees of loft with 200mph of clubhead speed. With such exceptional speed every error in his swing is magnified.
“It can’t be any more of achallenge. It’s a constant work in progress.
“It’s like a 8 year old that gets mad at you. It’s not cool.
Bryson later apologised. In a statement he said he deeply regrets his choice of words and called his comment very unprofessional.
“My frustration and emotions over the way I drove the ball today, boiled over. I sucked today, not my equipment. I deeply regret the words I used earlier”.
Now this reminded me of something. The Pearls of Phil, where Mickelson creates a big, attention getting drama and later regrets what he’s done. This was something very similar. Brysons now been in the headlines for three different things in one week. And who was he playing with in the practice round? The Pearls of Phil and the Dramas of Dechambeau. Pretty much the same script.
Sensing an equipment change might be happening sooner rather than later.
