The Rumor Mill

While there’s nothing so sordid to be TMZ-worthy in our “Industry rumors heard today” thread, it’s nevertheless an interesting buffet of overheards.

Presently 11 pages long, current discussion focuses around rumors surrounding Adidas’ departure from the golf business and implications for subsidiary TaylorMade.

There are a few sizzling takes on the situation, including SilverBullet’s on page 10.

Definitely a thread to bookmark if you’re into speculation and potential storylines in the world of golf.

Joe LaCava under the microscope

the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance - Round Two

In our Tour Talk forum, Tiger Woods’ caddie gets a GolfWRX-level of analysis, which is to say, hard questions he’s not facing elsewhere.

Thread starter vegas005 lead off, in part, with this:

“He seems to just carry the bag and hand out clubs while his player is clearly struggling with his game. Thoughts?”

Replies, of course, debate the nature and variety of caddying on the PGA Tour, look at LaCava’s past work and Woods’ relationships with previous caddies Steve Williams and Fluff Cowan.

Is the spectator experience at a professional golf event worth it? 

Golf-fans-

Sure, if someone offered you a ticket to the Masters, you’d go, but what about the average event?

Or faced with the choice between watching, say, the final round of last week’s PGA Championship with numerous players in the hunt in the comfort of your living room or struggling to traverse Whistling Straits amid heavy galleries to see the Jason Day/Jordan Spieth group that eventually produced the winner, which would you choose?

For an engaging discussion of whether it’s “worth it” check out this thread.

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.
