Wesley Bryan is a man known for his amazing trick shot abilities as one-half of the Bryan Bros duo. He’s also a winner on the PGA Tour winning the RBC Heritage but now, his tricky skills have come back into the spotlight.
During the final round of the BMW Championship, Bryan blazed through Conway Farms, completing his 18-hole round in one hour and 29 minutes (!!). He can be seen jogging around the course and his caddie would just toss him clubs to swing instead of Bryan going through the bag himself.
He was playing solo too, which is a reason why he was able to accomplish this. Probably the most amazing thing is, he shot a 69 even after going that fast.
An average 18 hole round would normally take four to five hours. Bryan just sliced that number up with a double-edged sword.
There is an actual variation of the sport, called “Speed Golf”. Maybe it’s time to sign Bryan up for a speed golf tournament?

Unorthodox swings are a common thing in golf, and in a way, adds to the charm of the sport. No two swings are alike.
One woman takes that to heart, with a swing that is very unusual, yet effective and powerful. Web.com Tour pro Steve Wheatcroft caught the moment and shared it on Twitter during the Albertson Boise Open Pro-Am.
She brings her back foot back on her backswing (say that fast three times) like she’s winding up. She keeps that foot back there on her follow through, as she extends her hands forward as if she’s reaching for the ball. She connects and hits a beautiful shot.
The ball would go well over 200 yards. This showcases the power of this unique swing.
There are many golfers who have had success with their own, self-taught swings. Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson is the most popular name that comes to mind.
No doubt that if she participates in any more tournaments, she’ll definitely get some extra attention from competitors and any spectators. Swings like this is a great example of how unique golf is because everything is different, whether it’s swings, courses, clothing, etc, every aspect is unique in its own way.
Go get it, girl.

Justin James was a man of few words during post match interviews at the Volvik World Long Drive Championship. The no.3 player in the world woke up after realizing he won the championship belt that’s awarded to winners. After defeating Mitch Grassing in the finals, James went bananas after his winning drive.
He grabbed the belt, ran with it, dropped, and then leaped like a cat into the stands, where he embraced hugs with his family. During his post match interview with Golf Channel’s Jerry Foltz, he had a lot more to say than previously as the sigh of relief consumed him. He was so ecstatic, he gave a shout out to his “super hot wife” as she looked in slight embarrassment.
There’s no doubt Justin James is the happiest man in the world. To go from being all business to becoming the “Snapping Turtle” (his nickname) shows that inner excitement. He didn’t have to do much either, as Grassing, unfortunately never kept his shot in the grid on all eight tries. WIth four balls to go, James was the mailman, and he delivered the package, with a moon shot that soared over 420 yards.
If there’s one way, to end a long drive competition, that’s one way to do it. On the women’s side, Sandra Carlborg captured her fifth title, becoming only the second long driver ever to accomplish this (the great Jason Zuback is the other). She made a case for becoming the greatest long driver of all-time.
Well played you two, and nice celebration Mr. James.

How hard is Wes Patterson swinging?
— Golf Channel (@GolfChannel) September 6, 2017
The golfers in the world of Long Drive are something special to watch. Sure, there are some haters out there, but the effortless power and the unique swings make it quite the spectacle.
Wes Patterson, who has shocked everyone by upsetting the two best long drivers in the world in Maurice Allen and Ryan Reisbeck in the Volvik World Long Drive Championship. He also has a beautiful swing, but that artistic swing shattered his club into two, hitting a fan.
The fan is fine and may have gotten a little souvenir. So the unranked Patterson has already had his share of highlights.
He also seems to be one of, if not the nicest guy in long drive which is saying a lot, because most of those guys and girls are very respectful and humble despite their intimidating nature. Golf fans may have a new fan favorite in Patterson, but let’s just hope that the next time a club snaps, that it doesn’t fly into the crowd.
That was a close one. Phew.

Dr. gave me the ok to start pitching pic.twitter.com/tboq1L3Xdn
— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) August 31, 2017
Tiger Woods has been on a quite a roller coaster ride since his last major championship at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. Now, the 14-time major champ looks to make another return to golf after he shared a video on Twitter of him working on his short game, hitting chip shots.
His doctor gave him the OK, which means we will likely see Woods in competitive action again soon. Even with the rapidly growing popularity of Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Thomas among others, a legend such as Woods returning to the game would just add to the purity of what surrounds the sport today.
What makes this interesting is, Woods won’t be the top dog when he returns, but instead, will be chasing players who likely idolized him growing up. Although Spieth has mentioned that the great Adam Scott was his favorite player growing up, some of the other young guns were inspired by Woods.
As I may have said before, although Woods isn’t the same player he once was, having him in tournaments will richen the depth of the field. Having veterans such as Woods, Scott, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia all playing along with the new breed is a nice blend to have in golf.
Not to mention you had a fun duel between Spieth and Matt Kuchar at The Open Championship back in July. That was a prime example of how the young bloods and experienced pros can come together to play some amazing golf.
Keep on hitting those chips Tiger.

On this episode of insane golf shots, a couple of dudes decided to hit a golf shot…using a towel. That’s right, you’ve seen ridiculous shots with clubs, but these dudes used a towel to hole a putt.
One of the guys in the trick shot duo, known as GM_Golf (Garrett & Micah Golf) juggled the ball on his wedge before the other whipped the ball with the towel. The ball then rolls its way towards the cup, for an amazing finish.
The celebration afterwards if funny, and after executing such a great shot like that, who wouldn’t celebrate like that? Just because some of these guys are great at trick shots, doesn’t mean they don’t get surprised each time they perform.
Bravo to Garret and Micah for such an excellent display of shot making. Their shot has been added to the list of most crazy golf shots we’ve seen this year alone.

When we see golfers hit shots from inside a baseball stadium, it’s so cool because it’s like hitting a home run with a golf club. Rory McIlroy joined the list of numerous golfers who hit golf balls out of a ballpark.
He went to Yankee Stadium to make it happen. As expected, with a 6-iron, McIlroy blasted his shot to center field.
Each year, Petco Park becomes a par-3 golf course, and golf and baseball love affair continues. Rory with his iron shot at Yankee Stadium shows the similarities between the two sports in that you’re hitting small balls with sticks.
And who doesn’t like hitting things with sticks? I’m sure at some point, we’d all love to hit some golf shots out of a ballpark whether MLB or college.
As a White Sox fan, I’d love to hit some shots out of Guaranteed Rate Field. However, a college ballpark would be best because you may not need permission, but who knows, depends on the school I suppose. Happy basegolfing!
What club would you use if you hit out of a ballpark? Let me know on Twitter @ChiGolfRaidio!

New trick! #trickshots #golftricks ⛳🏌️ (My favorite) Please share and tag friends! @15_bolivar @nbcsports @sportscenter @houseofhighlights @golficity @taniatare63 @holein1trickshots @golf_gods @coloradogolfblog @golfballed @pin_seekers_golf @mttgolf @all.things.golf @circlesgolf @chicago.golf @golfdigest @golfballing @thegolfmadness @espn @sas_golf_
He literally does a backflip over his golf ball while it’s in mid-air, and then he lands and hits it beautifully. This after he tosses the ball, where the ball bounces off a pad, and then he flips over it.
After that, it’s a picture perfect shot. How these guys do these trick shots is amazing, and we just witnessed another dandy right there.
As I mentioned before, this is how creative you can get with golf. In most sports, you can only do so many trick shots but in golf, the possibilities are endless.
You have multiple clubs and locations where you can make any trick shot happen. You just have to use your imagination, and Alec definitely did that to join a long list of great trick shot artists.

We’ve seen a lot of unique putting grips on TOUR.
But a one handed finish? pic.twitter.com/XfdL7IWvwW

In golf, we experiment with so many things that could help us be better players. Ollie Schniedrjans has a unique way of drilling birdie putts and it’s pretty cool, as he put it on display at the Wyndham championship
He uses both hands for his backswing like normal, but when he brings the putter forward, he uses one hand. In short, Schniederjans has a one-handed putting stroke.
It isn’t something that’s mind blowing, especially considering that you’ll see some pros practice their putting with one hand. Heck, I’ve practiced with one hand, and I’m just some scrub.
However, it’s pretty cool when someone does it in competition. Not to mention, he does it in a way that works which is nice.
So, not only is Schneiderjans making playing golf without a hat cool again, he’s also bringing some flare to the putting game. I think we can say drive for show and putt for show now. Well played Ollie.

Trick shots have become quite a craze in the world of golf, and they keep getting wilder and wilder. This one by Joshua Kelley, a professional trick shot artist, is one of the best you’ll ever see.
He hits the ball where it floats over his head in the opposite direction. From there, the ball lands on what appears to a mini golf green, and finally, it rolls into the cup.
You simply can’t make this stuff up. What some of these dudes and chicks are doing with golf clubs is insanity, and they keep getting better at it.
Yes, you can do trick shots in every sport. However, the versatility in golf can let your trick shot creativity soar.
You have numerous clubs you can work with, and many locations where you can make things happen. It just continues to show you how beautiful the sport is when you can do cool stuff like this. Well played.
