Jordan Spieth to become first golfer on Wheaties box since Tiger Woods

Published

on

Coming to four million Wheaties boxes this fall, it’s Jordan Spieth! No golfer has appeared on the iconic orange cereal box since Tiger Woods.

The list of Wheaties box-adorning golfers is a distinguished one. Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Lee Trevino, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Palmer have also graced Wheaties in the past. In other words, Wheaties is more selective about the golfers it includes than the World Golf Hall of Fame.

“You grow up seeing your favorite athletes on these boxes…[I] used to walk down the aisle of the grocery store whenever my mom used to drag me along and always want to see who was on the cover. To actually be on one is a…dream come true.” — JoRDan spieth

Here’s a look at the box, per Wheaties on Twitter.

We can’t be sure whether Spieth literally dreamed of being on the Wheaties box. However, he and his SB2K17 crew did enjoy plenty of cereal during their Baker’s Bay adventure this year.

For proof, check out this Snap from Justin Thomas (no word on whether Wheaties is seeking copyright infringement for the “Breakfast of Champions” phrase).

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.

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.
