Fowler makes hole-in-one for $1 million with Luke Donald’s club

Published

on

Rickie Fowler hit a golf shot at Ernie Els’ charity golf tournament worth $1 million on Monday… and BUCKETS!!!

To raise money for Els for Autism, a slew of big-name golfers including Rory McIlroy and Louis Oosthuizen tried their hand at making the 113-yard shot on the 19th hole of the Cigar Aficionado-Wine Spectator Pro-Am at Old Palm Golf Club. All were unsuccessful until Fowler casually stepped up and one-hopped the ball into the hole.

Follow Fowler on SnapChat to see the shot, and the reaction from the crowd (updated: Or watch the video at the bottom of the story).

Making the shot even more impressive is that Fowler used Luke Donald’s pitching wedge, according to a Tweet from Tim Rosaforte, and wasn’t even wearing his signature high-top golf shoes.

There’s no better time to make a hole-in-one than with seven figures on the line. And there’s no better time than now to give away your pitching wedge if you’re Luke Donald.

      Actually, we don’t have more idiots than any other country. It’s just that our idiots are more vocal than most.

    Autism is cured. What a scam. The money is in the “find a cure” mentality. The gravy train dies when they “find a cure.”

      How many times are you going to post the same thing?? Is your theory that we shouldn’t raise money for finding cures for diseases? I don’t understand. It takes many drops to fill a bucket…this alone won’t fund everything, but another $1 million goes towards continuing to fund helping people in need. How is that a bad thing? And why would we keep raising money to find a cure after a cure is developed??? I am so confused. You made my migraine even worse :(.

    Did he donate any of it back to the Els for Autism? Ricky likely doesn’t need all the money.

    Rickie needs to switch to Mizuno!

    Something interesting I read, and would be cool if it is true. Apparently, he was driving home and received a call to come out. He went by, borrowed Donalds wedge and a ball, didnt warm up and hit the shot. Pretty incredible either way.

      That is absolutely true, to bad the crack staff of writers here missed a great part of the story. That is normal here, just bad once again.

        Great story. The writer should have also clarified where the money went. My guess the charity. I hope big Ernie did not crush Rickie with that bear hug. Two great golfers and good guys.

          Autism is cured. It’s a scam. No more money from donations and medications that don’t work when they “find a cure”

What GolfWRXers are saying about Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons which he has in the bag at this week’s CJ Cup. WRXers have been commenting on the switch and the clubs themselves in our forums.

For lots more photos, check out the full thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • btyh: “Holy offset.”
  • Glf_LU: “These are interesting. Not going to make a rush to judgement until I see them in person. It does look like a little more offset than I would expect to see in this model.”
  • bcflyguy1: “Kisner is not one to make a lot of equipment changes (see the GBB driver he’s still using), so if these do have staying power in his bag that will be interesting to see. I have to wonder if there’s something different about his set, because like others have mentioned there appears to be more offset on his than I recall seeing in the samples I’ve had in hand.”

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.
