Some things are meant to be...

Some things are meant to be…

Hat tip to Golf Digest for this amazing find. In fact, this is probably the most absurd yet greatest coincidence of the year, not to mention pretty darn ironic.

Here’s the deal: Patrick Reed famously declared himself a “Top Five” player in the world after cruising to victory at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Problem is, many of his fellow competitors, along with golf fans, found it slightly obnoxious, to say the least, and ever since then, Reed has been the butt of “Top Five” jokes.

You may have already seen the video above here or here, but it’s new to us here at WUP. The weather sucks today (not just in NYC, I’m told)  – it’s snowing. Hard. Snow usually makes me smile, but not when it’s freezing and you have to trudge through it, so this video of six-year-old Caleb C.’s new rap song, “Puttin’ 101,” will definitely brighten your day, wherever you are.

Dufner and Tiger might throw down this week

Dufner and Tiger might throw down this week

Jason Dufner, an Auburn alumni and diehard football fan, understandably really wants to watch the SEC Championship this Saturday between his alma mater and Missouri.

Problem is, he has a work conflict! — that’s right, Dufner is playing in this week’s Northwestern Mutual World Challenge, the exhibition event that Tiger Woods hosts every December with the proceeds benefiting his foundation.

Tony and Mike

The guys over at Pardon the Interruption had some fun on Halloween, with co-hosts Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon dressing up as Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods, respectively.

I must say the ESPN panelists make a lovely couple, particularly dressed up as the Olympic champion skier and the 14-time major champion golfer. I mean, who couldn’t imagine Kornheiser as a ski bunny?!?

Even Lindsey and Woods chimed in with their thoughts:

These guys look right at home!

You may have seen these photos already from earlier this week, but internet connection in China is rough, to say the least.

Five of the world’s leading golfers today joined performers from a renowned Chinese opera company to celebrate the return of “Asia’s Major” to Shanghai. I really have no words.

Oh, I did find out today that the Chinese are big fans of Jason Dufner — they really like him and think he’s “cute.” His mystique apparently transcends cultures and language barriers!

Please caption this photo of Phil Mickelson and Ian Poulter. It needs to be done:

Pres Cup streaker in the police station at MV

Pres Cup streaker in the police station at MV

Kimberly Webster, now infamously known as the “Presidents Cup streaker, showed her patriotism when she stripped and streaked past Steve Stricker and Ernie Els on the 18th tee, while yelling, “Streaking for Stricker,” “Baba-booey,” “Team America,” “USA, USA,” and simply whatever came out of her mouth.

How did this idea all come about? Well, it started as a joke, of course. After all, wouldn’t it be funny and wouldn’t it add some excitement to the dreary, weather-delayed Presidents Cup if someone went streaking at Muirfield Village?
