European Tour awkward reporter

And we thought it couldn’t  be done — a truly, pee-in-your pants-laughing, hilarious golf…well, anything. In the history of the game. No joke. I can’t stop laughing and tears are streaming down my face! In a good way for a change this week! But I wasn’t expecting anything less. It’s quite a feat to create a video that crosses over to non-golf industry people — I’m fairly certain anyone, who doesn’t know or watch or like golf, will be LMAOLOLZ.

Wait, what am I talking about? Well, it’s the video we’ve all been waiting for…since the pro-am on Wednesday at the Abu Dhabi Championship. At least those of us who saw and/or heard the anecdotes from just about every player, manager, media person, insider on the European Tour.

Apparently the players at the BMW PGA Championship have been going flag-hunting at Wentworth and doing so successfully — as it’s been a week aplenty with holes-in-ones.

On Sunday in the final round, it was Chris Wood’s turn. Wood aced the 178 yard par-3 14th with a smooth 7-iron and won a BMW i8 (which he may or may not fit into).

Darren Clarke eventually won by three shots

Darren Clarke overhauled Chris Wood’s four-shot overnight lead this afternoon to claim the Iberdrola Open in Mallorca. Wood, hoping to capitalise on his immense promise and claim his maiden professional victory, was put under some early pressure by Clarke and never regained his momentum, eventually slumping to a six-over 76.

Picture perfect: Wood has played his way into a commanding lead this week

Chris Wood is twenty-three years of age and already has two top-five finishes in major championships. For a few frenetic minutes during the final round of the 2009 Open Championship, it even looked like the Claret Jug could find itself in his grasp by tournament’s end. His willowy six-foot, five-inch frame was, for the second Open in a row, defying the principles of aerodynamics, leaving him with a string of birdie opportunities where others, Harrington aside, were struggling to make pars.

It’s easy to forget that Lee Westwood entered the 72nd hole of last year’s British Open trailing Tom Watson by one stroke. Westwood’s drive detoured into a fairway bunker, and the best he could do was sky his approach to the front of the green.

Thinking he needed to hole his birdie putt from 45 feet to catch Watson, Westwood ran it 6 feet by and missed the comebacker for his third bogey in the final four holes. Westwood missed a playoff by one stroke after Watson’s putt for par also drifted wide.
