Last-minute golf-inspired Halloween costume ideas

Published

on

In case you haven’t consulted the calendar: Halloween is tomorrow, golf fans. And if you have a party to attend but still haven’t come up with a costume idea, fear not.

Here are five quick suggestions for your costume consideration.

Presidents Cup streaker

Since the most recent edition of the Presidents Cup is still in the collective memory of golf fans, why not seize on that for this great costume idea: the 2013 Presidents Cup streaker?

While Kimberly Webster wore little more than a red thong, slip on shoes, and artfully placed stickers, you can be a bit more modest, recreating the look with a nude bodysuit (ala George Costanza). Seinfeld, actually, affords a couple of golf-related costumes: Stan the Caddie or Golfing Kramer.

Mac Daddy Santa

If you’re truly heartless, Mugshot Shot Tiger Woods is in play for your Halloween consideration, but we don’t condone it. However, Mac Daddy Santa is a safer route and a more visually striking costume. And as Woods unveiled the bizarre character his children (reportedly) love just last Christmas, it remains relevant.

Old Tom Morris

Why not harken back to the early days of the game? Round up a hickory club, scour the thrift store for a thorny tweed coat and cap. Bonus points if you can secure a fake beard. Couples costume possibility: Old and Young Tom.

Masters Caddie

Barstool’s ForePlay pod retweeted a perfectly acceptable rendition of this costume. Of course, if you’re a real comedian/12-year-old, your caddie No. must be 69.

Your choice of Caddyshack character

Czervik. Webb. Noonan. Spackler. So many iconic, timeless possibilities. If you have a mind to go Happy Gilmore, pick one of these instead. Lacey Underall is, and will forever be, a viable option.

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

Published

on

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

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.
