We may be in the off-season, but over the last seven days, there has still been plenty of action from the golfing world on social media. 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.

Six Year Old’s Heavenly Swing

Golf fans went wild for this kid’s silky swing over the weekend…

… but it didn’t stop Club Pro Guy picking holes in the six year old’s swing. Someone’s in a Grinch mood.

Scott Brown’s Putting Aids

The world number 336 clearly wants to improve on his average 2018 putting performance, but trying out all of the putting aids at the same time is a questionable move.

You know you have talent when you can have a casual practice session in your living room without the fear of smashing the place up.

    To the #IdiotGolfPro @ClubProGuy who decided he needed to point out the “critical” flaws in the 6 year old kids swing…tell us how many majors have been won by golfers with some sort of “flaw” in their swing? The answer – ALL of them! And, until robots are allowed to play on the PGA Tour – it will stay that way. The goal is to get the ball in the hole in the fewest strokes. The ball doesn’t give a rats what kind of a swing is used to get it there.

    Unfortunately, the most common “critical” flaw many golfers have is listening to idiot golf pros like you @ClubProGuy!

      Umm, I do not normally comment (as In ever) but just felt the need to let you know that Club pro guy is a joke. Literally. Google club pro guy and listen to some of his stuff, it is all satire and he is not literally picking on this kid (amazing swing btw). #yucatanmasters

      Brad, let the Xmas spirit blow : @ClubProGuy is a dummy (and very funny) account of a pro who “made more than a dozen cuts on the Mexican Mini Tour, including the famed Yucatan Masters”.

Bubba Watson shares green jacket secrets, why he loves the new schedule, and his most important putting tip with Rich Eisen

Published

on

Bubba Watson took time out this week to discuss why Tour players love the new schedule, secrets of the green jacket, his most important putting tip, and more on The Rich Eisen Show.

The 40-year-old discussed why the players enjoy the schedule shake-up, which now sees the 2018/19 season end in August, joking how it allows Tour players to enjoy football without interruption, before adding that it now offers players greater flexibility when choosing which events to play.

As a multiple Masters champion, Watson also divulged to Eisen that he wears the green jacket on every occasion possible when on the grounds of Augusta National, and spoke about the impact of Tiger Woods’ victory at the tournament earlier this year, describing his win as “the greatest comeback story out of any sport by far”.

Watson began the interview by handing out a putting lesson to Eisen, advising him to put more weight on his front foot to “stay down on the putt” – which led to Eisen making back-to-back attempts.

Check out the full interview below.

Gary Woodland discusses trading NBA ambitions for a U.S. Open title, what it meant to win in front of his father, and more on the Dan Patrick Show

Published

on

Gary Woodland dialed into the Dan Patrick Show this week where he discussed amongst other topics – his impressive U.S. Open victory at Pebble Beach, what it meant to have his father in attendance, and how he traded his NBA aspirations for his career in golf.

Speaking on the emotions he felt winning the U.S. Open on Father’s Day in front of his father, who suffered a heart attack in Woodland’s rookie year while he was playing at Pebble Beach, the 35-year-old described the occasion as one that “you can’t make up.”

Clips courtesy of AT&T Audience Network.

As well as Sunday’s victory, Woodland discussed how his sporting ambitions changed after initially desiring a career in the NBA. In the 10 minute interview, the U.S. Open champion mentioned how in his first basketball game in college when matched up against Kirk Hinrick he realised that “he needed to find something else to do”.

Woodland also talked about his celebrations which involved drinking vodka out of the trophy with Jordan Spieth – a ritual Justin Thomas wouldn’t partake in due to a superstition having not yet won the U.S. Open, as well as the advantage longer hitters on Tour now have whether the course is long or short, and his nerveless shots on 14 and 17 on Sunday.

Check out the entire interview in the video below.

The Dan Patrick Show airs daily at 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET on AT&T Audience Network which can be found on DIRECTV Ch. 239.
