WATCH: Head falls off Horschel’s PXG Bat Attack putter mid-round

Published

on

Typically when you see a golfer putting with something other than a putter, it means one of the following:

  1. They’re putting so poorly that using another club is actually beneficial to their score
  2. They snapped the putter over their leg (or head) in frustration
  3. The putter is sitting at the bottom of a lake
  4. They gave away the putter to a fan

For Billy Horschel, it seems to be none of the above. Based on the footage from the 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic on Thursday, Horschel’s PXG Bat Attack putter head — I’d be remiss not to note the putter retails for $550 — fell off after he simply tossed it in the air and failed to catch it. The angle of the video doesn’t necessarily provide incontrovertible evidence as to what happened, so check it out for yourself.

The freak accident happened on hole No. 8, Horschel’s 17th hole of the day. He was sitting at 2-over par, and finished with two pars on his final two holes of the day without his flat stick.

He played on the Hawaii Pacific University Men's Golf team and earned a Masters degree in Communications. He also played college golf at Rutgers University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism.

    It doesn’t surprise me that the head fell off. I’ve been a clubmaker for over 20 years and compared to the other top line clubs, PXG clubs lack in workmanship and overall quality. I had to adjust the loft/lie for a customer (a top amateur) and a stretch ring appeared on the hosel of the 4 and 7 iron! I’ve adjusted thousands of clubs and haven’t seen that for 15 years. Also, the hosels are inexplicably bored to .390”, which them weaker and means you get a whole lot of epoxy between the shaft and the hosel.

    It seems you can censor the internet.

    I remember being young and stupid and teeing off with my old Acushnet Bulleye putter (the heavy blade for the record) and only bending it a bit. Quick back-handed whack on a tree and it was right back to straight. Loved that putter.

    A $550 putter foiled by a 2 gram 2 cent glue failure. Somehow I think that would really peeve me.

    Still amazed how they bought a ton of players before proving their equipment on tour – money talks as always.

    PXG needs to add a few more screws.

      Perhaps it is their clubs that are screwed!

    Didn’t Feherty say you could dig up a fir tree with a Ping Anser 2 and still have something to putt with? Should have stayed with Ping.

    I bet PXG is trying to cover this up as quickly as possible…I dare them to cover me up…

  9. Still out there. PXG is most likely trying to cover this up quickly.

    Would love to watch it, BUT it comes up as video unavailable. Did PXG send a cease and desist? (lol)

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.
