Sergio Garcia uncorks a sick Nick Faldo burn

Published

on

Sergio Garcia was, in some circles at least, a controversial addition to Thomas Bjorn’s Ryder Cup squad.

Amidst one of his worst seasons, Garcia got the nod as a vital ingredient of European team chemistry.

Happily, for the Europeans, Garcia contributed more than just backslapping and banter at Le Golf National: he won three points in four matches, taking down Rickie Fowler 2 & 1 in their Sunday singles match.

In doing so, Garcia became the European side’s top point getter. When asked about the accomplishment, the Spaniard couldn’t help but take a shot at the man he passed on the list.

“This means a lot to me,” Garcia said. “I have passed some of my heroes today—and Nick Faldo.”

Burn! Faldo, of course, captain of the 2008 European team, famously said Garcia had been “useless” in the competition at Valhalla in which he went 0-2-2.

It’s like they always say, “revenge is a dish best served after you break the Ryder Cup all-time points record of the man who threw shade at you years ago.”

Cheers, Sergio!

    Oh whoopee Sergio is a hero in a “Made for TV” golf show…In the world of REAL professional golf Sergio cannot hold a candle to what Nick Faldo has accomplished….

    I can’t stand either one of them. Mr. grip, re-grip, grip, re-grip, grip, re-grip, grip, re-grip, grip, re-grip, grip, re-grip, grip, re-grip, grip, re-grip, grip, re-grip, swing – gets on my last nerve.

    What would you rather have? Most Ryder Cup points or Majors?

    congrats to Sergio’s record, however, he ain’t half the champion Faldo was. Sergio: so much talent, so little results (exc Ryder cup of course)

    Great performance this weekend from Sergio but regardless of Faldo’s occasional foot in mouth episode he has now shown himself in the same light. Plus, he has just called out a 6-time Major champ. I expect Sir Nick is having the last laugh.

      Americans are in no position to be telling anyone how to drink. Least of all champagne, which is for winners.

Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?

Published

on

According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…

Published

on

Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.
