Oops: Luke Donald congratulates Vaughn Taylor on his “first” win

Published

on

Prior to edging out Phil Mickelson in the final round of the AT&T National Pro-Am yesterday, Vaughn Taylor hadn’t raised a trophy in more than a decade on the PGA Tour. Indeed, as a man without status, Taylor (an Augusta, Georgia, resident) had spent the past three years bouncing between the PGA and Web.com Tours.

Heck, Taylor, as the first alternate, wasn’t even in the original Pro-Am field. Given all this, it’s understandable how Luke Donald was confused as to Taylor’s career victory total with his congratulatory tweet.

With no shortage of Twitterers telling Donald that the win was not Taylor’s first, he offered a hasty correction.

The “W” earns Taylor and coveted invite to the Masters and a two-year exemption on tour. The tweet earned Donald some grief. But hey, it’s hard to rip a guy for praising and congratulating a peer.

    Asking questions are in fact nice thing if you are not understanding anything fully, but this post offers good understanding
    yet.

    Congrats to Vaughn! I remember watching him on the range at Congressional years ago working hard although he’d already missed the cut. We’ll deserved win! Come on guys back off of Luke!

    Luke Donald and Vaughn Taylor both played on the 2006 Ryder Cup, apparently Luke doesn’t remember that far back?

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.

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.
