President Obama tees it up at St. Andrews

Published

on

Now free to play as much golf as he likes without scrutiny, 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama is taking advantage.

Visiting Scotland for a £2,000-a-head charity dinner in Edinburgh at the home of philanthropist Sir Tom Hunter to help raise money for local youth charities, Obama took the opportunity to tee it up at the Home of Golf.

The former President’s office indicated Obama’s trip had been long planned, so the fact that he and the current President are both in the region is mere coincidence. The office indicated, too, that his trip to St. Andrews was private, but a crowd of onlookers soon gathered to follow the left-hander around the links.

Some video has emerged, courtesy of golf travel agency Connoisseur Golf’s Instagram and Twitter.

According The Guardian, Obama’s caddie told him, “No pressure, sir,” before he teed off in front of the assembled crowd.

“Well, going by those shots I shouldn’t feel any pressure,” Obama reportedly replied.

Per Connoisseur, word is Obama shot in the 80s with a few pick-ups, although it’s unclear from what tees.

Obama recently joined Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia.

    Only 95% of those on tour are Republicans and even Jack said he couldn’t stand the guy. The people above probably shoot in the 90’s and take as many Mulligans as Barry. No one cares!

    The lousiest president ever – he should not be admitted near a golf course.

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.
