Published

on

As the drumbeat of your too-much-champagne headache may have reminded you in the morning hours of January the first, the new year is upon us.

It’s only right, in the spirit of the bold resolutions more than 90 percent of Americans won’t keep, we offer up the official GolfWRX member resolutions for 2018 on your behalf. Feel free to add any of these to your own tally, alongside goals for the other arenas of your life

Without further ado: 18 golf resolutions for ‘18.

1. Order a Club Cameron membership before they sell out

2. Stock up on K-Sigs (before they sell out)

3. Hit the latest drivers from major OEMs on Trackman

4. Buy the two best performing (you need a backup)

5. Ditto: woods, hybrids, irons, wedges

6. Set an equipment budget and stick to it (although items 4 and 5 may complicate this)

7. Tour Titleist’s Ball Plant 3

8. Finally give hickory golf a try

9. Make up mind re: “roll back the ball” debate

10. Lift the left heel on a few swings, just to make Brandel Chamblee happy

11. Finally break (100, 90, 80, par)

12. Don’t break any clubs in anger

13. Limit browsing time on the GolfWRX classifieds to two hours per day

14. Plan that buddies trip to Bandon Dunes

15. Ditto: Masters trip

16. Find a way to display the custom putter collection

17. See how many yards (10s of yards?) the Hammer-X adds to your drives

18. Don’t be this guy

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.
