Subject: Why Golf Announcers Villify DeChambeau
The Truth looms very powerfully. Question what agenda-driven experts preach - always.
Why do those spent CBS TV golf announcers reference Bryson Dechambeau as though he were a borderline nut? - golf's mad scientist. And especially his equipment - they never mention it, or the inescapable logic behind it. They'd have you dismiss single length equipment and think of it as a fad, a hoax even. Because only a nut would use it. But that isn't the reason.
Here's the reason: Titleist, Taylormade, and Callaway spend many millions of dollars advertising on these TV broadcasts. None of those manufacturers makes single length equipment. (Cobra spends much less, and usually they only showcase their drivers.) Those CBS clowns lose coveted advertising money if they even whisper about single length irons on the air.
(The bad golf magazines (there are no good ones) aren't critical. Cobra spends a decent buck there. But it's still a one horse race. Ever see a critical review in a golf magazine article?)
The large equipment companies concern themselves with what? Making you a better golfer? - - - Or making a buck? There's nothing wrong with profits. Profits are good. But when profits come at the expense of what's promised, "they ain't good." Then you're being played in a con game.
Without selling mountains of new equipment every year, golf manufacturers won't stay in business. All these companies sell variable length sets because they're easy to mass produce and mass market. Somewhere in those 18 swing planes (one back and one down) there's something that will work for the golf consumer - 1 or 2 clubs. Good for sales, bad for individual golfers. These cash behemoths benefit from endless talk about (1) how difficult golf is, (2) the new design innovations that make it easier, and (3) how the pros play the same clubs you can buy. All that blather is wrong. Most lemmings never question it (or anything).
Not much of a super athlete, most of my life I couldn't consistently strike a golf ball. With single length equipment I can, and I'm in my 60s. Am I a nut too, like DeChambeau? Am I hallucinating? Bobby Jones did quite well with single length hickory shafted golf clubs. Was he a borderline nut like DeChambeau?
I remember being told the Japanese could make transistor radios but not TVs. Then that they could make TVs but not cars. When they made good cars we were told they couldn't make heavy equipment.
What will the major golf manufacturers tell you? - Any fairy tale you want to hear!
