Spieth and Zach Johnson bet $5,000 on MLB first pitches

Published

on

Recently crowned world No. 1 golfer Jordan Spieth and 2015 Open Champion Zach Johnson were both slated to throw out the first pitch at Major League Baseball games on Tuesday.

As friends and competitors, some light-hearted trash talking commenced on Twitter, and ended up in a $5,000 bet — for charity — on who would throw the better pitch.

Here’s how it happened.

The Twitter beef

Jordan Spieth’s caddie Michael Greller chimed in with some advice for his boy.

Then Spieth and Johnson ultimately decided on a bet.

A $5000 check to the winner’s foundation of choice. So who won?

The pitches

Things we learned:

  • Spieth is a southpaw.
  • Both golfers throw gas.

So about that $5,000 bet…

Who do you think threw the better pitch?

    He’s a fricking SouthPaw! No wonder he can putt! He just leads with his left hand!

    The Twitter banter was better than the pitches!

      I think it depends on the hitter. If Zach was throwing against Gov Christie then…

      As gentlemen I’m sure they both cut checks.

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.
