12 withdraw from AT&T Byron Nelson, including Day and Poulter

Published

on

The number of withdraws from the AT&T Byron Nelson has already reached 12 golfers as Thursday’s first round approaches.

Jason Day, who won the event in 2010 — his first PGA Tour win — withdrew on Wednesday citing “severe dizziness” during Wednesday’s Pro-Am at TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas.

Ian Poulter, who finished T5 at last week’s Crowne Plaza Invitational, also withdrew from this week’s event after experiencing a “slight strain” in the gym on Monday, as he announced via Twitter.

Other notable withdrawals from the Byron Nelson include Kevin Kisner, who’s had two second-place finishes in his past five events, George McNeill, Louis Oosthuizen, Jason Kokrak, Scott Gardiner, Chris Stroud, Alex Cejka, Neal Lancaster, Fredrick Jacobson and Will Zalatoris, according to ESPN.

Notable additions to the field include Tommy Gainey, Trevor Immelman and Ben Curtis.

While the field changes may or may not affect the outcome of the event, they will most certainly impact all those who have entered our DraftKings Weekly Fantasy Golf Contest. Don’t forget to adjust your rosters before tomorrow.

    The dreadful forecast may make some feel it’d be a wasted trip, and they’d rather stay at home with family

    The forecast is for continued rain…

    Isn’t this an extraordinary number of withdrawals? Is it all coincidence, or is there anything going on behind the scenes which might explain it?

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins

Published

on

With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

14_pound_lobster_caught_near_Bermuda_0_48217534_ver1.0_640_480Anyway, Woods has been on something of a grand tour of late it seems, taking in a friendly version of El Clasico in Miami and posing with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.
