An Attempt to Hit the White Ball Straight

How Does Cameron Champ Hit it So Far?

If you have watched some of the PGA Tour tournaments in October and November of 2018, you have likely seen Cameron Champ drill his driver over 400 yards on several par 5s. He has also averaged over 330 yards off the tee with a swing speed around 130 miles per hour. So, how does he generate so much speed and hit it so far?

What Driver Does Cameron Champ Play?

Cameron Champ has made a name for himself during the last tournaments of 2018 which are the 2019 FedEx Cup season. He has pounded several drives over 400 yards and his driving average is around 330 yards. He is also coming through at impact with a swing speed in excess of 130 mph. If you are searching for the driver he is hitting, it does not mean it will add distance to your drive. Your golf swing will. If you can swing at 130 mph and hit the ball square, you too will hit it well over 300. If you can’t work on your swing, not your equipment. That said, Cameron Champ hits the Ping G400 Max driver.

Note that Cameron Champ also has a custom shaft that you likely cannot even fathom imaginable. Most amateurs have a swing speed around 85 to 90 mph so do not think the Ping G400 Max is going to add 40 yards to your drive.

Justin Rose to Play Honma Irons in 2019

Beginning in January 2019, world golf #1 (right now) is switching from Taylormade irons and wedges to Honma. At this point, it looks like his contract will allow him to play any type of woods and driver which likely means he will stick with Taylormade, but who knows. We are also uncertain of the type of ball Rose will be required to play. Both Honma and Taylormade make golf balls for PGA Tour pros.

If you were wondering, some Honma irons have gone for as much as $75,000. You can go on eBay and find a set of Honma irons for as little as $275 and as much as $50,000. Not bad.

2018 Mayakoba Final Round Live Blog

As always, time stamps are eastern standard time:

3:44 – Kuchar leaves himself with three feet for the win. A little bit of drama to end this final round. He will mark and think about it. Kuch brushes it in and wins the Mayakoba Classic.

3:35 – Kuch hits one to the middle of the fairway on 18. Middle of the green and a two putt par and Kuch walks away with his first victory in several years.

3:31 – Kuchar two putts for par and will take a one shot lead into 18. Danny Lee has a birdie try to match Kuchar. He leaves it out to the right and didn’t give it a chance. Now he has to hope Kuchar bogeys 18. “You are not giving this one to your buddy is a Saturday Nassau.”

PGA Golfer Wearing Skinny Pants and Ankles Showing

Sam Ryder is the talk of the golf fashion world. He is the golfer that wears skinny pants that don’t go past his ankles. Supposedly, these are the pants –

What is the Yellow Driver Rickie Fowler is Using in 2019?

Rickie Fowler has the Cobra KING F9 SPEEDBACK in the back for the 2019 FedEx Cup season. We will see him use it at the end of 2018 and throughout all of 2019. It looks like a neon yellow or light green when he takes the clubhead cover off to tee it. Here it is:

2018 Shriners Open Final Round Live Blog

As always, the timestamps will be Eastern Standard Time:

6:33 – Bryson two putts and wins the  2018 Shriners Open at -21.

6:19 – Dechambeau is in the fairway looking for his fourth win in the 2018 calendar year. Not a bad year for the kid. He needs too putts from the middle of the green to get his fifth victory.

Will Tiger vs Phil Include Golf Carts?

They are calling it The Match. This is blasphemy for anyone that knows about Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan vs Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi. If you haven’t read the book, go get it now. The Tiger vs Phil after Thanksgiving matchup is going to be one for the ages. Although they both played terrible at the Ryder Cup, this is a different animal altogether. They are playing for $9 million, they will be the only two golfers on the course and there will be side bets. Phil mentioned betting $50k that Tiger couldn’t hit a downhill putt on a specific hole. Not $50, $50,000. Can you imagine a putt being worth $50,000?

We do know that there will not be a crowd at this event. It will also be a Pay Per View event for $20. What we don’t know is who will be at the event, besides the caddies, or if Tiger or Phil will be riding around in Golf Carts. I think all golf fans would agree that Tiger and Phil with their own cart would be wonderful. The could ride over each other’s balls or could roll up while the other is about to hit a shot. Anyone that has played golf knows the importance of a well timed Golf Cart roll up.

2018 Tour Championship Third Round Live Blog

I will update with time stamps (eastern standard time)

6:20 – Tiger cards a par on 18 and will have a three shot lead going into the final round. He will be playing with Rory McIlroy. I will be interested to see his reaction when Rory bombs a 350 yard drive 40 yards past him. Tomorrow will be fun.

6:13 – Tiger rips another one down the fairway. Looks likely that it could be Tiger and Rory in the final group. Tiger will have a four shot lead going into the final round if he can birdie 18.

2018 Tour Championship Second Round Live Blog

I will update with time stamps (eastern standard time)

5:54 – Tiger gives it a run but it slides by. He will finish with a total of -7; tied with Rose. They will tee off last tomorrow.

5:44 – Tiger destroys one down the middle of the fairway on 18. He will have around 220 in. Rickie hits his a little left and gets held up by the rough. Rickie will likely need to lay up. Rose birdies 18 so he finishes at -7. Tiger needs a birdie on 18 to tie Rose. Tiger hits a good shot and will have about a 20 footer uphill for eagle. That would give him the lead alone at -8.
