Good? Bad? Hilarious? GolfWRX members discuss hypothetical two-man teams
In its second year, the Zurich Classic’s team format is a new and curious beast amidst the medal play that dominates the PGA Tour. The two-man team format got GolfWRX member AceCatKY thinking.
“What would be some of the best/worst/funniest pairings of two PGA golfers for a two-man event? Current and past golfers can be paired together so you could have Old Tom Morris and Patrick Reed if you wanted…I think DJ/DeChambeau would be hilarious for the dichotomy it would present…What do you guys/gals think?”
Oh boy, what a superb hypothetical; imagine the possibilities: good, bad, and ugly! Naturally, GolfWRXers were quick to weigh in.
Sergio and Tiger would be interesting.
Seve and Phil could have been the most entertaining pairing in history.
Bubba Watson & Steve Elkington
Patrick Reed & Rory McIlroy
Danny Willett & Smylie Kaufman
Lumpy and Jesper
Tom Watson and Gary Player
Seve and Azinger
Robert Rock and Ollie Schneiderjans
Frankensteins Monster says
Ian Poulter/Patrick Reed
Todd Hamilton/Danny Willett
Tony Finau/Colt Knost
Robert Rock/Ben Crane
Michelle Wie/Tad Fujikawa

Tiger Woods gave 18-year-old Nepalese sensation Pratima Sherpa a private lesson
As you may have heard, 18-year-old Pratima Sherpa aspires to be the first Nepalese professional golfer. The story of her attempt to rise from almost unimaginable poverty to the professional ranks is the subject of ESPN’s short film “A Mountain to Climb.”
Visiting the United States for the premier of the film, Sherpa got a 30-minute private lesson with a 14-time major champion, as none other than Tiger Woods invited to the Medalist Club for a meeting, per ESPN.
Woods tweeted these shots of the meeting and the lesson. Regardless of whether you are/were a hardcore Tiger fanatic, it’s nice to see him settling into his “ambassador for the game” role.
Inspiring day working with my @TGRFound team and meeting Pratima Sherpa, an amazing young woman from Nepal. We can all learn from her perseverance, hard work and determination. pic.twitter.com/rV5KAtKzzl
