Grayson Murray fired his caddie during the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship

Published

on

In his rookie campaign, Grayson Murray has been best known for incendiary Twitter takes. So you’ll be relieved to hear this Murray-related item actually focuses on action inside the ropes… sort of.

During Sunday’s final round of the Wells Fargo Championship, Murray reportedly had a spat with his caddie, veteran Mike Hicks. The 55-year-old looper proceeded to walk off the course, and one of Murray’s buddies picked up the bag for the remainder of the round. Murray finished tied for 63rd (after challenging for the lead in the opening round).

Interestingly, he’s had little to say about the split on Twitter.

Man. Here’s the bottom line with Murray: Will there be widespread reprimand for his behavior? Sure will. Is an unproven rookie doing battle with his veteran caddie a good look or one that plays well with his peers? Certainly not. Is it ultimately beneficial to his golf game to be an incendiary presence on Twitter? Probably not.

However, as fans, if every golfer on the PGA Tour were the head-down, take-care-of-business types, we’d have a heckuva lot less to talk about. Thus, we’re put in the position of chastising Murray for his bad behavior, but keenly following each new incident.

You’d call it the “Dennis Rodman Problem,” but the Worm was one of the best rebounders in the NBA. This returns us to one of the more curious realities of all things Murray: We give a rookie with one top-10 finish in 15 starts less latitude for bad behavior than a veteran. Which is to say, play better, Grayson Murray (a take he’d probably second).

And a final note: Murray’s actions have inspired some pretty well, inspired, trolling. Consider this profile picture from user jack_gleeson, one of the golfer’s persistent detractors. Impressive work. And bonus points for grabbing one of Murray’s toothless photos.

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.
