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.

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.

Steph Curry did anything but embarrass himself in Web.com Tour debut

Published

on

Vegas set the over/under on Steph Curry’s opening round at the Ellie Mae Classic at 76.5.

And Curry didn’t sound like the confident man who’s perennially ready to hoist a 3-pointer from any distance in his post-practice round press conference yesterday.

But when he stepped inside the ropes as a competitor, the Golden State Warriors point guard was very much the man who does things like this

Which is really impressive, considering this post-round quote:

“As soon as he said my name on the first tee, I couldn’t feel anything. After about four holes I settled down.”

So, if you bet the over, you can’t be blamed. Curry, however, had other plans for his debut, getting around par-70 TPC Stonebrae in 74 strokes.

After starting off with a bogey (and a tee shot that landed in a golf cart cup holder), Curry played his remaining 17 holes in a respectable three over. That’s pretty damn good.

The highlight was a curling birdie putt at the par-3 sixth hole (his 15th of the day). Jordan Spieth’s fellow Under Armour sponsee celebrated with a variation on Spieth’s “go get that” Open command (per ESPN’s Michael Collins)

Curry plays to a 0.6 handicap, did excellent work at TPC Stonebrae, it has to be said. And while he was tied for 141st at the time he completed his round, his plus-4 round placed him four strokes off the cut-line pace and ahead of a handful of pros.

Enjoy a few highlights of No. 30’s 74, courtesy of the Web.com Tour. As you can see, Curry’s shots aren’t dripping with tour pro precision (yet), but the man is a solid scrambler and a gritty competitor.

Well played, Mr. Curry.

Ted Bishop: Valhalla is “more dramatic and challenging” than Augusta National

Published

on

Ted Bishop, former president of the PGA of America, has no problem courting controversy…and sometimes, he even does it on purpose.

Bishop, largely out of the spotlight since his famed “little girl” tweet to Ian Poulter, got out his typing fingers for a piece on the Morning Read.

Now, Bishop’s core suggestion may be worth looking into: Find a permanent home for the PGA Championship, ala the Masters.

OK. Perhaps this could be a good thing and a point of differentiation for the least prestigious of the four major championships (no disrespect to the PGA of America or tournament organizers).

Unable to refrain from entering for salesman mode, Bishop travels to absurd realms with a comparison between Augusta National and Valhalla.

“I would argue that even with the natural beauty of Augusta National in early April, the golf course itself is not as dramatic or as challenging as at Valhalla. Certainly, Valhalla can be better and the PGA would be greatly incentivized to do that if it were a showcase of the championships that it owns.”

Not as dramatic or as challenging? What exactly is Bishop basing this on? The “drama” of the last PGA Championship at Valhalla was merely that of a birdie-fest shootout, not a “challenge.”

And in terms of popular guard, there is of course no competition: The Jack Nicklaus-designed course comes in at No. 81 on Golf Digest’s Top 100 list for 2017-2018. Augusta National, for its part, is second.

But let’s be real for a moment: There’s no way Ted Bishop actually thinks there is a comparison between the two courses.

He’s merely icing a cake of serious suggestion (finding a home course for the PGA Championship) with the thick frosting of absurdity (Valhalla/Augusta comparison) knowing the media would be unable to resist eating it up (and we’re eating it up).

Right?
