Oh. My. God. At the quarterfinals of the Volvo World Match Play Championship, Nicolas Colsaerts found himself in some deep doo-doo on the par-4 10th hole. Literally. (continue reading…)
During the third round of The Players Championship, it appeared — at first glance — that Lee Westwood whiffed a shot on the first hole. Which made us, mere mortals, feel much better about ourselves. For about a minute. Then, we saw the slow-mo version, where Westwood’s club hit the tree in his downswing, causing him to completely miss the ball.
So, it wasn’t a *true* whiff, but it still cost him a stroke. Minor details! I’ll just continue lying to myself that he did indeed whiff because it makes me less depressed about my game (or lack thereof).
A few months late to the game, but who am I kidding?!? — I love the Harlem Shake!
On Tuesday at the PGA Tour Wives Golf Classic, Billy Horschel, Daniel Summerhays, and a few others joined their wives in the Tour version of the popular dance. Well done!
Watch out, Golf Boys, you’ve got some competition! Marty McCurry, the head pro at Old Fort Golf Club in Murfreesboro, TN, and Jason and Jordan Tate, his dancers who moonlight as golfers occasionally, did a hilarious golf parody of the classic ’90s hit, “Ice, Ice, Baby.”
The lyrics to “Slice, Slice, Baby” are witty and clever — and I’m sure many of you can relate to them! The guys deserve an A+ for effort, not to mention form. I’m impressed. In fact, this is the best thing I’ve seen in a while.
Great vid, any way you slice it! (I know, groan.)
When Nate Smith, who earned a spot in the Wells Fargo Championship by firing 63 in the Monday Qualifier, walked into the locker room on Wednesday afternoon, he found his new golf bag with a note (pictured above) attached, “All players, please sign for charity auction. Nate Smith, you’re welcome.”
Nate had left the bag he was using for his tournament next to his locker and when his buddy James Hahn came across it, he saw it as an opportunity to get Nate back for a prank earlier in the day.
Turns out it may have brought some good juju, as Nate shot a five-under 67 to share the first-round lead with seven other players, including world no. 2 Rory McIlroy. (continue reading…)
Bubba Watson tweeted the above picture from New Orleans of himself #Dufnering with Jason Dufner and the stars of Duck Dynasty. Now that’s a motley crew, eh?
This picture screams caption contest. Ready, set, go!
In case you’re one of the few people who haven’t seen this, Bubba Watson and the folks over at Oakley, along with hovercraft expert Chris Fitzgerald, president of Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc., an Indiana-based company, have built a hovercraft golf cart. (And the date of the above video’s release is April 2nd — my birthday! — so no, it’s not an April Fool’s joke.)
After Deadspin posted this legendary picture of Jason Dufner hanging out with kids at a charity event in Irving, Texas, #Dufnering has become a trending meme on the internets. Here are some of the best from the pros, along with others around the Twittersphere…
Thanks to Deadspin for posting this masterpiece of Jason Dufner, the winner of the 2012 HP Byron Nelson Championship. Apparently, Dufner was in the Dallas area for a kick-off luncheon for the 2013 event. He also spent some time with students at the Salesmanship Youth and Family Center. He’s obviously having the time of his life. Could he be any happier to be there??
Naturally, this calls for a caption contest. Go for it.
Okay, I’m not going to lie — I giggled and even laughed out loud a few times watching “2.Oh,” the encore performance of “Golf Boys,” a group consisting of Ben Crane, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan.
The song was written by Mat Kearney.
As you may recall, the group released their international debut in June 2011. A second music video was not in the original plans, but apparently the golfers finally gave in after relentless requests from fans.
There you go, everyone! Enjoy. (continue reading…)
