That didn’t take long: Grayson Murray deletes his Twitter amid controversy

Published

on

23-year-old PGA Tour rookie Grayson Murray had been on a social media roll in recent weeks. Between tweeting an underrage girl and lamenting the fact that she was still in high school, bellyaching over supposed bias in the Official World Golf Rankings, and his usual scuffles with trolls, the North Carolinian was hastily tweeting his way into ill repute.

But after a rash of blowback for his mid-round split with veteran caddie Mike Hicks at the Wells Fargo Championship, Murray has wisely decided/been told to shut down his Twitter account.

See: He gone.

grayson-murray-twitter-While Murray’s recent points that were pro golfers more open and engaging on Twitter, it’d be more fun for fans, his particular variety of “open and engaging” has brought nothing but trouble. Clearly a devoted Twitter user who reads all the replies and can’t help but respond, it’s hard to make the argument Murray’s Twitter use is “good for his personal brand.”

It’s even harder to imagine that it’s good for his golf game. Saying pros should stay off social media altogether and beat balls until their hands bleed is unrealistic, and really, unnecessary. However, both the quantity and quality of Murray’s presence on Twitter wasn’t doing good things…for anybody.

While he’ll doubtless make a triumphant return to the social media service sooner than he should, Murray would do well to remember why the contemporaries he’s urging to tweet more and with greater candor don’t do so: The upside probably isn’t what Murray thinks it is, and the downside is, well, pretty much everything going on in Murray’s recently vanished timeline.

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.
