Twitter heavyweight fight: Ian Poulter and Brandel Chamblee do battle

Published

on

Ian Poulter went from losing his Tour card (we thought) to finishing tied for second at The Players Championship in a period of weeks.

While Poults’ effort to chase down Si Woo Kim, who won by three strokes, was lauded in most circles, a certain moppy gray-haired polemicist took issue.

Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee suggested Poults “clearly did not play to win” the tournament. His comments seemed to come to Poulter’s attention via another Golf Channel personality (on Twitter, of course). Here’s the what Poulter had to say about Brandel’s remarks.

Shots fired at the 1998 Greater Vancouver Open champion!

As a general rule, you had better be pretty darn certain an athlete of any variety isn’t doing his utmost to win before calling him out for such.

To do so is like saying “Brandel Chamblee isn’t trying to fire up his best arbitrarily contrarian and incendiary takes for the sake of self-promotion.” We’d certainly think twice before leveling those particular charges.

    BC has no credibility in criticizing ANY active player…

    Beat ’em first, then you can smack ’em….

    Who actually cares about either of them?

    Brandel is Jim Rome’s clone. At first, its new, novel and fresh. Then quickly it becomes old, uninformed and predictable.

    Sorry. Can’t take Brandel seriously after he became a mouthpiece for Tathata Golf. Poulter’s shot from the pine straw on 18 is the thing of legend. He came within inches of holing out!
    Chamblee talks smack just to hear his own voice, and to see if anyone will one day walk onto the set and punch him in the face on live TV.
    Go play on the senior tour Brandel. Let’s see how many trophies you hoist in the next 5 years.

      I was standing 6 ft. in front of him when he hit it. TV doesn’t really show you how deep he was. It was the best shot I’ve ever seen live.

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.
