19th Hole

A friend is looping for Rory McIlroy for now (and he’s the betting favorite to keep the job)

Published

on

Rory McIlroy’s longtime friend Harry Diamond will carry the Ulsterman’s bag at this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and next week’s PGA Championship, per a report in The Telegraph.

Diamond does have experience on Rory’s bag, looping for him as recently as the 2014 Dunhill Links Championship. And while we haven’t received official word on the Rory-J.P. split, The Telegraph suggests Fitzgerald may have mis-clubbed his boss on the 10th hole during the final round of The Open.

Of course, McIlroy also credited the looper’s pep talk with inspiring his opening-round rebound after a rough start.

If you want to take a guess as to who Rory’s next permanent caddie will be (or whether the Diamond could stay on the bag full-time), why not place a wager? Paddy Power is offering odds on who McIlroy’s next permanent bag carrier will be.

Romeo from “Tin Cup” is an attractive play at 500-1…

8/13       Harry Diamond
9/4         Billy Foster (Lee Westwood’s caddie) 
9/2         Jim ‘Bones’ MacKay
7/1         Joe LaCava
10/1       Michael Doran
14/1       Steve Williams
14/1       Ricky Elliott
16/1       Gareth Lord
16/1       Ted Scott
16/1       Colin Byrne
20/1       Mike ‘Fluff’ Cowan
40/1       Fanny Sunesson
100/1     John Rathouz
100/1     Niall Horan
300/1     Gerry McIlroy
300/1     Tiger Woods
500/1     Romeo from ‘Tin Cup’

    I get it it’s the caddies fault if the player hits a bad shot. And only the caddie knows how far he’s going to hit it. Give me a break this young man had better grow up better yet get his wife to caddie.

81-year-old golfer makes 2 hole-in-ones during 6-hole stretch

Published

on

Making an ace is a life goal of many amateur golfers, and the prospect of making two in one round would understandably be unfathomable to most. But that’s precisely what 81-year-old golfer, Chuck Miller, pulled off, and what’s more, he achieved the feat in a six-hole stretch — holing out twice with the same club.

Miller, who is a 20+ handicapper, was playing at the Cortez Course in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and used a six iron for both his ace on the 135 yard 12th hole and 138 yard 17th.

Speaking to Kark.com, Miller talked about how his first ace was a perfect strike and the emotions he felt when it happened.

“When the first one went in on the 12th hole, I was really excited. It was a great shot over the front bunker onto the green; it bounced once or twice and went into the cup. We all jumped and shouted.”

While, his second ace of the day was more relatable, with Miller calling it a “total fluke”.

“I sculled my tee shot on 17. It never got much off the ground and hit the ground only about 70 or 80 yards from the tee. Since the ground was dry and the hill sloped downwards, the ball continued to roll. It rolled past the front left bunker guarding the green and rolled onto the green.

Once the ball got onto the green, one of my playing partners yelled it’s going to go into the hole – and damned if it didn’t. I was thrilled but couldn’t believe such a lousy shot ended up in the hole.”

Miller’s only other hole in one came 45 years ago, and two days before his achievement he said he also shot his age on the course.

Known as the “Traveling Guy”, Miller once played in every state in one year, documenting the journey in his book “Golfing the U.S: Reflections on a 50-Week, 50-State Golf Odyssey.”
