Praise Dionysus, Beer Pong Golf has arrived!

Beer Pong Golf

We’ve seen beer pong-inspired golf games. We’ve seen cornhole golf games enter the backyard activity pantheon.

However, we’ve yet to see a beer pong golf game in which you can actually drink the substance in question.

So, we say, cheers to the holy of holies that is Beer Pong Golf. Chip it! Drink it!

The equipment: Two 48’’ x 23’’ boards. 10 slots. Green plastic mats. Hollow golf balls. Players place the mats 12 feet from the board and chip. So so many great things, the concept is simple.

Then, as international beer pong law mandates, when a player from the opposing team/your opponent pitches the ball into your cup, you drink (as illustrated below). Much fun and drunkenness ensues! Yas, bros!

    The clownish stupidity surrounding golf is pathetic and reflects on the type of desperate people who are seeking fun rather than practicing to perform on the golf course. Immature minds and clowns litter the golf courses of the nation.

      Isn’t that rather harsh indictment of the 25 million golfers that trudge and drive on the golf courses of the nation? So what that 95% of them can’t break 100 without cheating, the guys who play these golf skill games are usually the cream of the crop… of clowns.

Phil Mickelson has been ranked in the OWGR top 50 for 24 years. Impressed?

Published

on

Animalgolfs points out an interesting end-of-the-season factoid: Phil Mickelson has been ranked inside the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking for the past 24 years. Also interesting: Mickelson has never been ranked No. 1.

It’s an impressive accomplishment, even allowing for the fact that the ranking wasn’t invented until 1986, right?

Most GolfWRX members think so.

Grm24 writes

“It’s an amazing number. As with the number total number of weeks Tiger was ranked #1 in the OWGR that will likely never be touched, I do not for foresee any current player finishing in the OWGR top 50 for the next 24+ years. An excellent tribute to Phils longevity and overall play.”

Bye agrees

“That’s seriously impressive, especially when you add in how much the equipment has changed during that time.”

JerseyBoy says

“He’s in my top 5. Love to watch him. And he is doing all that with an Autoimmune Disease which is amazing in and of itself.”

However, not everyone is impressed by the left-hander’s achievement. Ferguson, who is not a member of the Phil Mickelson Fan Club, says (pulled from several posts)

“And this statistic, while worthy of a mention, is not that outstanding when considering it is based on a world ranking system that started in 1986.

“He (Phil) had the skills but never had the potential. He lacked the mental capacity to stick to a consistent game plan week after week, and execute. He made a lot of bad choices.

“Phil was a circus act, replete with pompous showmanship. Sure, he was good for the TV audience – we all like to watch a guy with no self control. He could have been number one had he stopped trying to be so darn fabulous all of the time.”

Eventually, Ferguson says that Mickelson is a great player, one of the top-25 of all-time, but that he sees little value in this particular achievement.

What do you think, GolfWRX members? Is Mickelson’s achievement closer to Tiger Woods’ cut streak or “who cares?”

Check out the forum thread and have your say.

GolfWRX members say “bring back the Skins Game!”

Published

on

“Anyone else miss the Skins Game?” GolfWRX member Medic wonders. Ah yes, that Thanksgiving-time tradition of Fred Couples fattening his wallet to extreme proportions… The Skins Game hasn’t been contested since 2008, and plenty of GolfWRX members continue to mourn its passing.

Hawkeye77 writes

“…YES I miss it! Back when golf had a season that wasn’t spanning two calendar years, the NFL played 14 games, may hair was still brown, and on and on. Actually, when it stopped including Jack and Arnie I kind of started to lose interest, but now getting some Euros and other world players involved with our guys, could be some fun!”

Bigarch says

“A Thanksgiving weekend staple! The Skins Game was great when there were strong personalities playing. Would love to see it come back, but I don’t know what 4 players have personalities strong enough to make it “must see tv” like Arnie, Jack and Lee could. You need guys doing things on the golf course like Patrick Reed and Rory at the last Ryder Cup. Actually that would be 2 pretty good players to start with. Next let’ss throw in Mickelson who loves money matches.”

Dave230 points out the sad reality underlying the demise of the Skins Game

“Yeah, pity there aren’t more novelty events in the off-season. Skins is such a fun format to watch. But like regular events, they’re very reliant on having well-known players show up. The first Skins game was Nicklaus, Player, Palmer and Watson, four of the greatest to ever play the game. Whereas 2008 was Choi, Ames, Mediate and Mickelson. Just not the same.”

And that’s the sad truth. Most of the players we’d like to see in the Skins Game are earning massively more on Tour than the big draws of the early Skins competitions did. With the overflowing plate that is the PGA Tour season, the Tour’s shining stars are looking for as much rest as they can squeeze in during the holiday season. With no ranking points on the line and likely not competing for much more than a winner’s share elsewhere, the Skins Game has gone the way of the buffalo, sadly.

That is, unless a sponsor wants to step up and offer a million dollars per hole. Phil Mickelson, at least, would be in…Skins Game king Fred Couples, too.

What do you think about the Skins Game, GolfWRX members? Sad that it’s been dead for nearly a decade? Couldn’t care less?

Let us know what you think or join the discussion in the thread.

These have to be the most callused hands in professional golf, right?

Published

on

The European Tour is rounding up the best (presumably Instagram) photos of the year as 2017 winds down. With the 13th installment in the series, the Euro Tour presents a photo snapped by Kristoffer Broberg of his countryman Alex Noren.

More specifically, Noren’s calloused palms. These mitts would make a 19th century seaman proud!

Have a look.

The photo’s caption reads in part

“Alex Noren’s hands after a particularly long practice session, the day before the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. Noren is known as one of the hardest workers on Tour and has said before that he now often wears two gloves during practice to protect his hands from the effects of hitting hundreds of shots in a day.”

Maybe he should take to wearing two gloves on each hand? On the plus side, he’s got something of a reminder grip, not so much in the grip, but rather in his hands. Just nestle that baby ‘neath your calloused and you’re good to go!

What do you think, GolfWRX members? We’ve all practiced until blistered and bleeding, but have you ever seen anything like this? Is there some unique reason for this level of callusing? Answers needed.
