Taylor Funk’s vlog is must-watch stuff. Seriously. Watch.

Published

on

Longtime fan favorite Fred Funk’s son, Taylor, is taking a unique approach to gaining fans of his own. Subscribers, to be more specific.

Funk, who turned pro in May, is without status on any professional tour. The 22-year-old is cataloging his exploits as he tries to make it as a professional golfer in a series of vlogs.

Now, the concept is interesting. Funk is entertaining, and a guy you’d certainly root for. Likewise, appearances by Fred are worth watching. But the real reason to press play is this: Funk produces some damn good videos. He may have a future in video production or direction if the golf thing doesn’t pan out.

Check out the first installment, filmed while Taylor was competing in the Jamaica Open, and you’ll see what I mean.

“No one really gets to see the behind-the-scenes look of what a golfer does practice-wise, travel-wise,” Funk told Golfweek’s Kevin Casey. “It’s glamorous and unglamorous at the same time, and I think people want to see that.”

Indeed. And with Taylor nearly as adept with Adobe Premiere Pro as he is with a golf club, it’s must-see stuff.

What do you think, GolfWRX members? Behind-the-scenes footage of pro golf life is always worth watching, whether it’s the big tour or the minis, given the production and host, you’ve gotta love it.

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.

WATCH: Phil gets roasted, and other hilarious impressions of players at The 2018 Open Championship

Published

on

Impressionist/comedian Conor Moore has done impressions of golfers before, most notably his Masters edition (and this one), but he may have outdone himself with a new Open Championship video.

His impressions of Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Tiger Woods and Bubba Watson are scarily spot on. In the video, he roasts DJ’s laid back nature, Phil’s U.S. Open rules fiasco, Fleetwood’s hair, Tiger’s ability to dodge questions and Bubba’s propensity to shed some tears.

Watch the full video below (click here if the embed doesn’t work for you).

Tiger Woods: “If I intimidate you, that’s your own (expletive) issue”

Published

on

In his heyday, Tiger Woods was one of the most intimidating athletes on the planet. I mean, does anyone dispute this? Woods demoralized and decimated his opponents, and he was happy to do so. Heck, his mother told him to step on his competitors’ necks…when he was a child!

For a period of time, there was no surer bet in the world of sports than a Tiger Woods win when he was in contention. He knew it. Fans knew it. Everyone else in the field knew it. Dude is 52-4 when holding at least a share of the 54-hole lead!

Things are a bit different now. Humbled, with a fused back and easier demeanor, Woods surely isn’t the fiery competitor who always showed up to tournaments expecting to win, is he?

Well, if that’s your opinion check out the gem Twitter user @donaldremington has had stashed away since a May Tiger Woods clinic (presumably at Tiger Jam in Las Vegas).

Warning: If you’re offended by graphic language, well, cover your ears.

Vintage.

While Woods may no longer intimidate competitors the way he once did (see: Casey, Paul at the Valspar Championship), he doesn’t seem to have developed any sympathy for those who can’t stand the heat in the kitchen.
