Brittney Horschel reveals alcoholism, added significance of husband’s win

Published

on

While this story lands in Buzzroll due to its social media sourcity, we’re not suggesting there’s anything “light” about the substance.

Billy Horschel’s playoff victory over Jason Day at the AT&T Byron Nelson was particularly poignant. This was obvious to anyone tuned in for the dramatic conclusion. A return to the winner’s circle after a run of bad form, on the heels of a Putter Throwgate, and the first such result since 2014—all reasons for a little extra jubilation.

However, Brittany Horschel, Billy’s wife since 2010, tweeted the following note Monday afternoon. And it’s more than sufficient to say, the Horschels have multiple reasons to celebrate.

Thus, not that we were entitled to, but we know a little about what Billy Horschel meant when he said

“Life gets in the way sometimes. I’m not able to talk about it right now. But it’s just a lot of stuff happened in the last year and this is just – this is nice.”

Horschel was all class in leaving the decision up to his wife to share her story. And his willingness to step up for his family and reluctance to make excuses during a run of poor form is eminently commendable, as well.

It’s no surprise, then, that the win, which coincided with a year of his wife’s sobriety, and the conclusion of a dark period in his family’s life, resonated so deeply with the Florida Gator.

The Horschels have two daughters: Skylar, 2, and Colbie, who was born April 12.

The win was his first since the 2014 Tour Championship.

    Congratulations Mrs. Horschel and Billy. Addiction is not an easy road to travel. As someone who has dealt with addiction to numerous substances, I know that it is not an easy road for the addict or their loved ones. I applaud your sobriety Brittney and your commitment Billy. Perseverance and a strong support system are the keys to long lasting sobriety. And as an added bonus I am avid and passionate golfer, this made me cry.

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.
