WATCH: Matsuyama hates golf shot, almost makes a hole-in-one

Published

on

Hideki Matsuyama has been on an absolute tear on the golf course of late, capturing six worldwide wins in the last calendar year. He’s also proven time and again that he has incredibly high standards for his golf shots.

At the 2017 Genesis Open, he took his hand off the golf club in disgust on a par-3 tee shot, and the ball nearly went in the hole.

“He hated it and it hit the flagstick,” an announcer proclaimed.

We think he may have caught the ball a groove low, but alas, he’s the undisputed king of #TourSauce as NoLayingUp would call it.

Good luck trying to guess where the ball is going based on Matsuyama’s reactions. Although if you guess “somewhere near the hole” you’d likely be right, even if he snaps a club over his knee especially if he snaps a club over his knee.

    He’s slow, boring, mechanical and a tool. The amount of time he does this you would think he would wait till he sees the result. What a tool!

    Probably feels when he misses the center of the clubface and reacts off of that

    I hate it when I thin one that hardly get off the ground… even if it gets on the green. I am grateful I am lucky… but I hate the actual shot…

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.

Steph Curry did anything but embarrass himself in Web.com Tour debut

Published

on

Vegas set the over/under on Steph Curry’s opening round at the Ellie Mae Classic at 76.5.

And Curry didn’t sound like the confident man who’s perennially ready to hoist a 3-pointer from any distance in his post-practice round press conference yesterday.

But when he stepped inside the ropes as a competitor, the Golden State Warriors point guard was very much the man who does things like this

Which is really impressive, considering this post-round quote:

“As soon as he said my name on the first tee, I couldn’t feel anything. After about four holes I settled down.”

So, if you bet the over, you can’t be blamed. Curry, however, had other plans for his debut, getting around par-70 TPC Stonebrae in 74 strokes.

After starting off with a bogey (and a tee shot that landed in a golf cart cup holder), Curry played his remaining 17 holes in a respectable three over. That’s pretty damn good.

The highlight was a curling birdie putt at the par-3 sixth hole (his 15th of the day). Jordan Spieth’s fellow Under Armour sponsee celebrated with a variation on Spieth’s “go get that” Open command (per ESPN’s Michael Collins)

Curry plays to a 0.6 handicap, did excellent work at TPC Stonebrae, it has to be said. And while he was tied for 141st at the time he completed his round, his plus-4 round placed him four strokes off the cut-line pace and ahead of a handful of pros.

Enjoy a few highlights of No. 30’s 74, courtesy of the Web.com Tour. As you can see, Curry’s shots aren’t dripping with tour pro precision (yet), but the man is a solid scrambler and a gritty competitor.

Well played, Mr. Curry.
