Nate Smith bag

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.

Lynnsanity!

Lynnsanity!

David Lynn is playing in his first Masters this week and he shot a four-under 68, good enough for second place at the moment. While the 39-year-old Englishman is a rookie on the PGA Tour, he’s not a stranger to leaderboards at majors — though this is only his third one. Last year he was runner-up to Rory McIlroy at the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island, which was also his first start in the U.S.

Lynn, who is a must-follow on Twitter, is a funny fellow and quite the prankster. He also enjoys planking and going into his caddie Wayne Husselbery’s iPhone and writing obscene updates on his Facebook (uh, they’re not appropriate for this forum!)

I sat down with Lynn at Doral in March and he told me about some of his best pranks, like the time he changed Ian Poulter’s license plate from “IAN P” to “TAMPAX.” My favorite one might be when he set up a fake dating profile and messed with his caddie, though.

Check out the Q&A and get to know Lynn.
