WATCH: Fan filming Bud Cauley blasted by golfer’s punch shot

Published

on

“Friend of a friend having a great time at the Byron Nelson until comes thru,” tweeted a gentleman by the name of Devin Grainger.

Indeed. And we assume that “friend” has a sizeable welt on his chest after an unfortunate encounter with Bud Cauley’s golf ball.

As originally reported by Golf News Net, Cauley missed the ninth green at the Byron Nelson, his ball landing in some thick roughage. A fan was filming Cauley (illegally, of course) as the Alabama alum weighed his options, eventually hacking his golf ball out… and directly into the amateur Spielberg’s chest.

We asked Grainger if the friend of a friend was OK via Twitter, and he reported Cauley’s victim is “doing just fine.”

Cauley (who retweeted the video) went on to record a double-bogey six on the hole and finished tied for fourth. The unfortunate cameraman? Well, he’ll probably choose a less risky angle for his next cinematic endeavor.

    This what you get when you sell cheap 1 day tickets. Golf tournaments should only sell week passes to keep out the morons.

    I’m sure the tour is too scared to lose galleries by being too punitive on cell phone use, but it would be nice to see them crack down. It’s annoying that caddies have to do it when there are marshals lined up all around. People would enjoy life a lot more if they looked up from their “digital devices” more often. Why bother going to a tournament only to stare at your little screen the whole time? Enjoy the experience for what it is – your awful quality videos and photos will not have the lasting significance that the tech companies want to convince you of.

    Serves him right for standing in the line of fire. I hope Cauley autographed the welt on his chest.

    As Nelson Muntz would say, “HA HA!” Even worse, he was shooting vertical video. Turn your phone sideways!

    You are not much of a golfer yourself if you station yourself between the shot and the hole. What an idiot. If you play golf you know that shot could be hit slightly off line. And you know it’s gonna be zinging! I am in agreement with the vertical camera/phone thing. My evening news features lots of citizen-recorded video… about 90% are vertical, and they have to “fuzz out” the sides of the screen.

    Oh, and while I’m on my rant, I love the galleries about 280 yards off the tee when Jason Day or Jordan Speith are driving. Not even watching and they’re hit by the ball. I thought we went to pro tournaments to “watch” the golf… not chat or check text messages…

    1.) Put your camera away unless they have started to allow them

    2.) QUIT WITH THE VERTICAL VIDEO MORON. Search youtube for Vertical Video Syndrome – it is a thing you know.

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.
