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.
