To nobody’s shock, Bryson DeChambeau was not completely happy after he completed his first day of The Open Championship one stroke over par and tied for 74th.
However when the press questioned him following the primary spherical, the eight-time PGA Tour winner selected to take goal at his gear — his Cobra driver to be precise. And Cobra was none too happy.
“If I can hit it down the center of the green, that is nice, however with the motive force proper now, the motive force sucks,” he stated after hitting the green simply 4 out of 14 instances at Royal St. George’s on Thursday, per Bob Harig of ESPN. “It is not face for me, and we’re nonetheless attempting to determine learn how to make it good on the mis-hits. I am residing on the razor’s edge, like I’ve advised folks for a very long time.”
These feedback did not sit properly with Ben Schomin, who helps manufacture Cobra drivers to the golfer’s liking and even served as DeChambeau’s caddie on the Rocket Mortgage Traditional after his long-time caddie abruptly bowed out.
“It is simply actually, actually painful when he says one thing that silly,” Schomin advised Golfweek on Thursday. “All people is bending over backwards. We’ve acquired a number of guys in R&D who’re CAD-ing (computer-aided design) this and CAD-ing that, attempting to get this and that into the pipeline quicker. (Bryson) is aware of it.”
Schomin added: “He has by no means actually been completely happy, ever. Like, it’s very uncommon the place he’s completely happy.”
There is no such thing as a quick phrase on how it will have an effect on DeChambeau’s partnership with Cobra.
