Tweets of the Week: Die-hard Tiger Woods fan, Spieth and Reed’s awkward hug, and The Dude is spotted at Torrey Pines

Published

on

Justin Rose dominated at the Farmers Insurance Open, Bryson DeChambeau won his first tournament overseas by capturing the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, and the 2019 PGA Show came and went. In a busy last seven days, here are some things you may have missed, and some of the quirkier moments from the world of golf dished out in the Twittersphere over the past week.

The Big Lebowski

Adam Scott putting with the flagstick in the hole? The Dude Abides.

Lip Out Central

Day One at Torrey Pines saw some brutal hole rejections…

…while over in Dubai, Sergio Garcia can thank his lucky stars that this somehow stayed in the hole.

Spieth & Reed Hug It Out

Spieth called the decision to hug Reed prior to Round 3 of the Farmers Insurance Open “sarcasm.” Yeah, pretty sure the hatchet hasn’t exactly been buried just yet.

Tiger Fan

The return of Woods saw his die-hard fans come out in force.

$100k Mistake

This “penalty” (caddie lining up his player on a putt) on the final hole on Sunday dropped Haotong Li from T3 to T12 and cost the Chinese professional $100k. What do you think, GolfWRXers?

Rickie Flares It

Rickie Fowler made sure there was no confusion over where this tee shot had gone.

The Rise Of Honma

Justin Rose’s win over the weekend was as big a win for the Japanese Club manufacturer as it was for the Englishman. Any GolfWRXers a Honma convert yet?

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.
