19th Hole

Is this really the worst golf shot in America?



The title of the article is the title of an absolute horrorshow of a YouTube video, folks.

Posted by Jeff Ritter some three years ago, the caption for game-of-golf defiling video reads simply.

“As the sun slowly sets, Brian Hutcherson tries — and tries again — to tee off on the 18th hole of the Hall of Fame course in St. Augustine, Fla., in October, 2010.”   

Now, the irony of this man with this swing playing a track in any way associated with the phrase “hall of fame” is just too perfect.

Three points here.

1) Naming the poor bastard in the video is a savage move from Ritter.

2) While this video is hilarious, the amount of tee box excavation he does isn’t. We’ll hope a bounty of booze was involved, but if not, the dude has no place on a golf course.

3) The reason this “shot” stands alone among the worst is that he essentially recorded 12 strokes without even contacting the ball once. At least Tin Cup showed skill while racking up the strokes when standing in the same spot.

Worst golf shot

And making things mind-bogglingly worse: It seems Hutcherson hit his ball out of bounds (tough to tell where it ended up as he outlasted the daylight). It sounds like he says he has another ball, and he looks to pull one from his pocket. That’s like taking 15 shots to get one in play!

Stroke-and-distance raises a possibility more horrifying than anything you’ll see this Halloween: Hutcherson did the whole awful thing again.

What do you think, WRXers, ever seen an attempt to tee off gone so terrifyingly awry?

    I commend him on having a pre-shot routine though…

    ‘..poor b*stard’? Since when has such profanity been acceptable in a wrx article? M.smzls comments are deleted and yet this is allowed?

Fancy a punt? Check out these Tiger Woods British Open prop bets



It wouldn’t be a major featuring Tiger Woods without Tiger Woods prop bets, would it? Bettors, as we know, get off the sidelines to shovel cash behind Woods when he tees it up in major championships. This has been historically true. It was true at the Masters. It was true at the U.S. Open.

Accordingly, the good folks at BetDSI are offering a number of Woods wagers you may be keen to punt on…especially if you want a piece of the TW action but aren’t keen to take Woods at 24-1 to win The Open.

WATCH Phil Mickelson hit a flop shot over a man 2 yards in front of him



On the Gear Dive podcast, Fred Couples told Johnny Wunder that Phil Mickelson is the best judge of a lie (and the shots he can execute from a certain lie) in the game of golf.

This video from Carnoustie yesterday is testament both to that fact and a reminder that Phil Mickelson’s short game is truly singular.

Former European Tour pro Gary Evans was the guinea pig.

Here’s the shot from another angle. That’s gotta be a 64-degree Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind, no?

Mother of golf gods! Check your trousers, Gary! How crazy is that shot? There’s plenty of puffery when it comes to Phil’s short game, but that shot is simply insane. Would love to see the Trackman data on that flop.

I mean, if Phil doesn’t get the contact he wants and you get hit, you gotta hope to get pelted in the stomach or chest…and not the jewels or the face.

What do you think, GolfWRX members? Would you take Evans place for viral video fame? A few bills from Mickelson’s famed cash wad?

Want to watch Rickie Fowler drive it 458 yards? Sure you do!



I’m not about to act like Rickie Fowler had some Hulk-meets-Joe Miller moment at the Scottish Open and belted a drive more than 450 yards.

No, Dick Fowler, P.I.,was massively aided by baked out Gullane, the contours of the fairway, and likely a decent tailwind. Obviously. He’d certainly admit that fact, and it’s abundantly clear he smacked his drive down a concrete ski slope.

That said, a 458-yard drive is a 458-yard drive, and it’s a spectacle worth watching.

Check it out.

All credit to the Cobra King F8+ and Aldila NV 2KXV Blue 70X shaft; check out Fowler’s full WITB here.

Fowler finished tied for sixth place at 14-under.
