WATCH Jamie Sadlowski as Grandpa Jamie: a 400-yard-drive-bombing 80-year-old

Published

on

Ever seen a geriatric pound a golf ball well over 300 yards? Well, that’s what Jamie Sadlowski, playing a much older version of Jamie Sadlowski, does in “Grandpa Jamie.”

I’m just going to head this one off right away: If you think Cleveland’s video is all concept and no execution, you’re wrong. Sadlowski is a helluva lot funnier in the Grandpa Jamie role than you might expect, and the video is really well done.

If you liked Skratch’s similar feature with long driver Troy Mullins, you’ll love Grandpa Jamie. Honestly, the central conceit–that he’s Jamie Sadlowski in disguise–is arguably the least funny part of the video; Sadlowski is simply great at playing the octogenarian version of himself and really embraces the character. Watch out Daniel Day-Lewis!

    Golf is now fully degenerating into a game for clowns.

Good? Bad? Hilarious? GolfWRX members discuss hypothetical two-man teams

Published

on

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.

He writes

“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.

Bye writes

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

Cardoustie says

Lumpy and Jesper

Tom Watson and Gary Player

Seve and Azinger

Frankensteins Monster says

Ian Poulter/Patrick Reed

Todd Hamilton/Danny Willett

Tony Finau/Colt Knost

Robert Rock/Ben Crane

Tiger Woods gave 18-year-old Nepalese sensation Pratima Sherpa a private lesson

Published

on

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.

Sherpa’s incredible story, as mentioned, is detailed in the ESPN short “A Mountain to Climb,” which you can (and should) watch below.
