How did they make THIS mistake in “The Match” promo poster?



The organizers of “The Match” may want to allocate some of the $9 million purse to hiring someone to proof their ads.

Take a look at this Western-style poster Tiger Woods tweeted.

Notice anything? Take a closer look at Tiger’s TaylorMade M3.

That’s right, folks. Or rather, it’s wrong. Whoever designed the poster is either a non-golfer or superb prankster, because that’s a left-handed driver.

Phil Mickelson was quick to spot it.

Of course, an alternate possibility is that Woods will be swinging a left-handed driver right-handed to make a possible victory over Mickelson in the Thanksgiving weekend showdown that much more impressive. Perhaps both players will be playing with drivers suited for the other hand? OR maybe they’ll be playing with each other’s driver? That must be it…Or it could be a DELIBERATE faux screw-up to generate additional publicity. Hmm…

    What does this have to do with DJ’s new putter?

    The mistake? Putting it on in the first place never mind PPV. I’m sure I’ll have laundry to do that day.

    Now this has came to light I suggest collecting printed ads if there are any. Wonder when they will change them. Sorta reminds me of some of the Beatles Abbey Road albums if you are old enough to rember

    Ben, the poster is not the only thing that needs proofing. It’s ‘whomever’ not ‘whoever’.

    Tiger has to play with Phil’s sticks, thought everybody knew that. Seriously, the whole idea is kind of a joke so just for fun, they should have to play one hole out of each other’s bag. I’d tune in for that.

    This thing is a farce. I wonder why some comments are not posted. Is someone at WRX offended?

    Big deal, I wish they were playing with their own money. Now really don’t think much of the match.

    Probably a photo from when he played Nike clubs, and somebody (badly)photoshopped in the TM.

    No value added. Insignificant.

    It’s a prankster message, saying that it doesn’t matter what he uses, he can’t keep it in play anyway

    I assume the article is tongue-in-cheek, because – of course – promotional materials are generally designed by graphic designers. The chances the particular designers know anything about golf are down to population percentages; if they do play at all, it’s probably once a year…

    You’ll see the same goofy mistakes in any area you inspect; eg, people in ads and movies talking into the wrong part of a microphone (and often not plugged in)… You’ll find tons of reversed images everywhere in advertising.

    TaylorMade probably paid for it to be wrong, trying to show off that Twist-Face

    Um, Tiger wore blue today and has before. Try googling Tiger Blue Shirt images

  16. Hawk

    Aug 23, 2018 at 1:17 pm

    Two more errors…. Tiger never wears a blue golf shirt, red, black or white but never blue…. and the Nike swoosh logo is replaced by his TW logo…

      Aug 23, 2018 at 1:37 pm

      Maybe never in competititon. But NEVER?

      Dude, he’s literally wearing a blue shirt today in the northern trust..

Louis Oosthuizen cried tears of joy after winning the South African Open, while Patton Kizzire and Brian Harman triumphed at the QBE shootout. But those weren’t the only talking points over the last week in the golfing world. Here’s a look at some things you may have missed, and some of the quirkier moments from the world of golf dished out in the Twittersphere.

Uncanny Bubba Impression

He’s nailed impressions of Dustin Johnson and Keegan Bradley in the past, and now Jack Bartlett turned his talents to the mercurial Bubba Watson. The result is both hysterical and scarily impressive.

“Mud Ball!!”

Because the original “mud ball” moment is just as hilarious.

The Turf Chopper

A look into the future of golf on the fairways?

DeChambeau’s New Bag

Bryson showed off his slick new golf bag while in action last week. What do we think GolfWRXers?

Please Replace Divots

Open Championship Mania

An 11-year old’s mother showed just how much her boy enjoyed his experience at this year’s Open Championship…

Exploring Ireland: Where to golf, drink and stay on the Emerald Isle. Pt. 2. Old Tom Morris Links, Donegal



In these series of articles, I will be taking you around the Emerald Isle providing you with great golf courses to visit in some of the loveliest spots in Ireland. I’ll also be highlighting the best and most authentic Irish bars in these spots, as well as places to stay, eat and how to get there. Whether you’re taking a golfing holiday to Ireland in 2019 or are interested in doing so sometime in the future, I’ll make sure to let you in on the best places to spend your time.

In Part One of our Exploring Ireland series, we focused on County Wicklow and showcased Woodbrook Golf Club. Now it’s time for Part Two, and we’re taking a trip to the far northwest corner of the island, and into County Donegal.

While it may not be the most accessible destination, Donegal is an absolute must for anyone traveling to Ireland. Voted number one on The National Geographic Traveler’s ‘cool list’ for 2017, Donegal is like no place you’ve ever seen. Full of breathtaking beaches, incredible walking trails, cosy pubs and of course, excellent golf courses, you’re guaranteed to have a great time here.

Old Tom Morris Links, Donegal


My pick for the top golf course to visit in the county is the Old Tom Morris Links, situated within the Rosapenna Hotel and Golf Resort.

In 1891, while a guest of Lord Leitrim, Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews decided to visit Donegal, and in typical Tom Morris fashion, he believed that it was the ideal location to build a championship course. What Morris created was a course with wide rolling fairways and magnificent greens that have stood the test of time.


The course was renovated twice before a new Strand Nine opened in 2009 which now plays as the front nine of the Old Tom Morris Links. The addition gives the course a wonderful mix of a traditional and modern links feel.

The challenging course plays over 6,900 yards from the back tees, and only offers up the relief of three par-fives. The challenge can also become even more daunting should the wind blow, and being situated along “The Wild Atlantic Way,” you should expect nothing less.


While you will no doubt enjoy the stern test and the natural feel of the golf course, visitors will have even more to look forward to should they take the trip here. The course runs along Tramore beach overlooking Sheephaven Bay and offers up sensational views no matter what hole you are on during your round.

The rates to play 18 holes at the Old Tom Morris Links begin at $40 in winter, and $60 during the summer months.

Food & Drink – The Olde Glen Bar, Carrigart


A 10-minute drive from the course will take you to The Olde Glen Bar a few minutes from Carrigart, which Ulster’s very own Hollywood star and golf fan Jamie Dornan (The Fall, 50 Shades of Grey) called the “best bar in the world.”

The bar first opened in 1768, making it one of the oldest bars in Donegal. The Olde Glen Bar has kept its very traditional feel, and when you get there, you will feel like you’ve been transported back in time. Wooden floors, big open-lit fires, low ceilings and door frames add to the charm of this little bar where there is always something going on.


There is live traditional music playing in the bar every weekend, and along with the music, The Olde Glen Bar boasts an excellent craft beer, whiskey and gin selection. The bar prides itself on its Kinnegar beer, brewed just up the road, and it’s well worth a try if Guinness isn’t your thing.

The bar also features a highly acclaimed restaurant, offering up dishes such as seatrout, venison, supreme of chicken and plenty of other delights.


Where To Stay

The obvious choice is the Rosapenna Hotel and Golf Resort itself. This luxury establishment will cater to all your needs and is the ideal place to stay when in the area if you have the money to splash out. A classic double room will set you back around $200 a night, or you can go for the stay and play option which provides you with two nights bed, and breakfast along with a round of golf at both the Old Tom Morris and the Sandy Hills Links for around $300 per person.

If you’re looking for somewhere less expensive or more traditional, then there are plenty of cottages in the area that will add even more character to your adventure. Here’s what you can expect should you wish to stay in an Irish cottage in the area, and it will give you a feel for true Irish life out on the Atlantic Ocean.


Donegal has lots to offer should you manage to pull yourself away from the course or the bar. Fishing, walking trails, surfing and scuba diving are all favorite activities to do while visiting Donegal. One must visit, however, is Glenveagh National Park, which is a nature reserve with beautiful scenery of mountains, lakes and woodlands. The highlight of the park though has to be Glenveagh Castle, built in 1870.

How To Get There

The lack of quality public transport in the area makes it a little trickier than other spots to get to, but if you’re driving, then there’s no issue at all. The Old Tom Morris Links is a 3 hrs 30mins drive from Dublin City Centre, 4hrs 10mins from Galway City Centre, and 1hr 15mins from Derry City Centre. If you happen to be flying into Donegal Airport, then it will take you around an hour to get to the area.

Tweets of the Week: Best golf posts from Twitter over the last week



Jon Rahm triumphed in the Bahamas, Cameron Smith got the job done down under, and Kurt Kitayama was victorious in Mauritius, but there were plenty more talking points in the golfing world over the past week. Here’s a look at some things you may have missed, and some of the quirkier moments from the world of golf dished out in the Twittersphere.

Rose and Stenson’s Wardrobe Mishap

They proved how well they could perform together when they excelled at Le Golf National in September, but the European pair may have been a little too in sync on the opening day of the Hero World Challenge…

Focus like Chikkarangappa

Chikkarangappa lost his cool on the 16th hole in Mauritius over the weekend, but the Indian showed that it would take more than a ridiculously loud phone going off on his downswing to put him off his stride.

Tiger Fever

It’s reassuring to know that it isn’t just us humans who are obsessed with the 14-time major champ.

Dustin’s Stats

Another decent season for DJ then…

Tommy Fleetwood’s Perfect Solution

Controversy surrounded the result of the mega boxing match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder over the weekend. The consensus was that Fury had won the fight, but when the contest was declared a draw, golfs very own Tommy Fleetwood came up with the only reasonable solution to decide the winner.
