We receive no shortage of curious emails here at GolfWRX. And occasionally, they contain content which we’re grateful for being alerted to. Like this one. “Hey Ben — reaching out here from sports comedy website, The Kicker. Wanted to share with you a new video that we just released today that I thought you might enjoy. In it, we re-created Jordan Spieth‘s Masters meltdown in the old video game Golf. -Carl” Hmm, OK, Carl, I’ll bite. The (dare we say) masterpiece above was produced by The Kicker, which is describes as a “sports comedy online destination from premier online comedy network Above Average and the co-head writer of Saturday Night Live, Bryan Tucker.

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