Justin Thomas made one par in 19 holes at The Players Championship

Published

on

Restating the headline: Justin Thomas made just one par in a 19-hole stretch at TPC Sawgrass. Still don’t believe it? It’s not fake news, trust us.

As ESPN’s Jason Sobel noted, from the 12th hole Thursday through the 12th hole Friday, Thomas’ scorecard included.

  • One eagle
  • Eight birdies
  • One par
  • Eight bogeys
  • One double

Incredible. Look at the card!

c8d04d9e-0a86-4721-a523-3daf123920f2“It was so bizarre,” Thomas said following his second round one-under 70. He had opened with a one-over 73, so JT sat at even par after two rounds, well inside the cut line.

“I don’t really know what to say about that round. Anytime I got momentum, I seemed to give it right back.”

Indeed he did. He made three consecutive birdies twice…and three consecutive bogeys twice. He was four under on the front nine Friday…and three over on the back nine.

Perhaps it’s the ultimate illustration of one of the platitudes about Pete Dye’s TPC Sawgrass: If you put your ball in the right places, you can go low, but compound a couple of mistakes and bogey or worse is always in play.

Ultimately, Thomas seemed confounded by the rollercoaster nature of his two rounds, but not bothered.

“I know why I’m making those bogeys,” he said. “I’m making bogeys on some easy holes. I mean, 10, 11, 12, I would expect to at least birdie one of those, and if I do that, I have a great day today. So I would definitely say that.”

Golf is a game of ups and downs, to be sure. But it’s hard to remember a more extreme example of that fact than Thomas’ work through two days at TPC Sawgrass.

    He started on 10 in round 2, they are saying the 19 holes from hole 12 on his first round through the back nine on his 2nd round and then the next 3 holes.

    Confusing, poorly illustrated in the images, but accurate.

      Ok, so not through THE 12th hole Friday (as stated in the article) but through HIS 12th hole Friday (actually the 3rd). Makes perfect sense now. Thanks for the clarification. Yes, could have been written/explained MUCH better.

    How is this possible given the scorecard shown? I don’t think this is right.

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.
