See how PGA Tour pros reacted to Jordan Spieth’s win at Colonial

Published

on

Yesterday, Jordan Spieth torched Colonial’s back-nine to the tune of a five-under 30 that included three consecutive birdies to close things out, earning him a three-stroke victory over Harris English.

The win, Spieth’s eighth, and one which he predicted will stand as one of the most important of his career, was well-received among his fellow pros. Many of the 22-year-old Texan’s contemporaries to Twitter to voice congratulations and wonder at Spieth’s scintillating closing stretch.

Here’s a sampling.

Webb Simpson

Erik Compton

Smylie Kaufman

Justin Thomas

Shane Lowry

Ryan Palmer (in a press conference) 

Q. Can you put into words what went on out there?

RYAN PALMER: Oh, man. A lot of putts. Watching that, you see where he’s at and what he’s done. It was fun to be in that atmosphere, in that arena, watching the chips he made, the putts he made. You know, I was proud of the way I handled myself inside there. I was calm all day, relaxed, and a little tentative putting. If I could have made half my putts up there today, I could have been up there with him close. It’s something to build off for sure, but man, that was fun to watch him.

Q. What does it say about Jordan that he was able to close the way he did?

RYAN PALMER: Just, I mean, he’s young, he’s fearless, but that confidence he’s got is high. You can tell with his putter, it just takes one putt to go in, and that hole has got to feel like a bucket to him. You can tell how they’re pouring in. It’s fun to watch. It tells me what I need to work on for sure and where I can get better, and hopefully we’ll have another chance and we can do it again.

    The luckiest player to ever play the game

      I’ve played a LOT of competitive golf at a high level and it’s not luck. It’s hell to run up against guys that can do something better than everybody else. You try to convince yourself that they are lucky when the truth is they are just really really good at whatever it is they do. Speith is the best putter in the world, it’s as simple as that.

        If you think there’s no luck in 9 putts in 9 holes on the back nine on Sunday, you’re an idiot. If it’s not luck, it would happen way more often.

      It would be luck if some 24 handicap hacker did something like that. For a top PGA Tour player, it’s way more about actual skill.

    What a lucky break to get that session with Bill Murray – really brought Spieth to a different level :o)

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.
