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.

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. (continue reading…)
Hello from Portland and the Nike “Innovation Unleashed” summit, where I’ll be bringing you updates and showing you all the latest in Nike Golf equipment and gear!
Oh, and OW!
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: (continue reading…)
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: (continue reading…)
Scare Tiger? Afraid not. Well, turns out Lindsey Vonn attempting to scare boyfriend Tiger Woods is a game they play, as the Olympic skier explains in the video above. (continue reading…)
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?
Just when you thought this Presidents Cup couldn’t get any wackier with the wigs, pet squirrel mascots, weather delays, three matches in one day, The Fanatics, over-served fans — we can now add “streaker” to the list.
As Steve Stricker and Ernie Els stood on the 18th tee in their Sunday singles match, they had a close encounter with an eye-opening visitor, to say the least. The unidentified woman ran through security and up the stairs onto the tee box and then back down across the 18th fairway.
[*FYI: Some of the pictures are kind of NSFW after the jump.] (continue reading…)
Bubba Watson and his caddie Teddy Scott led the way in SportsCenter’s new “DaDaDa” campaign, where athletes call out their “DaDaDa” moments.
After Jason Dufner tapped in for bogey on 18 to secure his first major victory at the PGA Championship, he embraced his wife Amanda and gave her butt a little squeeze, which was apparent by the millions watching the telecast, and another #Dufnering craze was born. (continue reading…)
