WATCH Justin Thomas’ horrorshow 9 at the British Open

Published

on

Like the old saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, torpedo your chances of making the cut at The Open with a string of bad decisions on one hole.”

Justin Thomas started his second round just two strokes off the lead after a tidy opening-round 67.

On the sixth hole, things went from bad to worse for Thomas. Attempting to play his third shot from deep in the bottom of the proverbial salad of rough grasses, Thomas swung and missed.

Instead of stopping the bleeding and deeming the ball unplayable, Thomas stepped up to the plate again to the same result. Keen, apparently, for the strikeout, he swung again. To extend the baseball metaphor, the swing produced a foul ball out of play (or so it appeared).

It was at this point Thomas elected to take a drop, which is what, in the fullness of hindsight, he should have done to begin with. Of course, this is easy to say, but what percentage of us, with our kettles at a rolling boil, would have the good sense to back off and take a drop?

You can watch the carnage unfold below.

Thomas went on to make a quintuple-bogey nine on the hole. Kudos to JT for hanging tough for the rest of the round, however.

    Why did this pop up as a headline for me when it’s a year old?

    JT stuck around to fly back with his close friend Jordan on whatever jet they had waiting for them. Maybe he can learn some course management from Speith. Can’t imagine Jordan in that situation simply whacking away like that. For all the hype at the rough at Erin Hills I don’t recall anything like that happening except for Kevin Na in his video.

    He did stay the rest of the weekend and was there to congratulate Spieth after his winning final round, so I think he’s got his head on mostly straight.

    Methinks he thinks he’s better that we think.

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.
