Barack Obama outgolfed Jordan Spieth thanks to clutch putting and terrifying trash talk

Published

on

Jordan Spieth sat down with James Corden on The Late Late Show last night. Fortunately, the host worked in a couple of questions about his recent golf excursion with 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Spieth, who golf fans should be happy is blossoming into an excellent storyteller, told two stories about his round with the former President.

The genesis for the first story: Spieth asked President Obama about the difficulty of the job and his advice for future Presidents. Obama gave a lengthy thoughtful reply that ended with him talking about…aliens.

You have to hear Spieth tell it. Then, stay for Spieth’s story about how their team match ended.

Great stuff. Obama has a reputation as an on-course trash talker. Spieth, as we know, is a dogged competitor himself and likes a good needle. If you’re a fan of golf, you have to be hoping for and Obama-Spieth head-to-head showdown.

And thanks to the magic of the USGA Handicap System, it can happen. Heck, mic them both up in a match for charity and record the whole thing. You’d watch, right?

Maybe Obama will spill some details about Area 51 in the process?

    Not real, Jordan. Manufactured at Area 51 to get you to accept “protection” from world gov. Not a secret. People who walked away from have already spilled the beans. Absolute power over you from cradle to grave is the motive.

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

Published

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.

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

Published

on

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!

Published

on

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.
