This video got Kevin Kisner suspended from his home course

In reply to a Twitter query from a gentleman named Jim Manion asking, essentially, what he had to do to play a round with Kevin Kisner at the golfer’s home course, Palmetto Golf Club, Kisner responded saying, “I would let you play anytime with me @palmettogc1892 but I’m suspended bc of my @VICESports video. Seems fair!”

First question: What is this video? Second question: Is he serious in saying that he’s been suspended from the Aiken, South Carolina course?

Answering the second question first, Kisner later tweeted:

And when asked why he wasn’t practicing at Palmetto, Kisner replied… 

@Ihatebubbamac @WellsFargoGolf @THEPLAYERSChamp normally do but having some issues there

Wow. He’s serious. Returning to the first question, here’s the video in question, produced by Vice Sports (in partnership with Callaway). It was posted to the forward-thinking news (and sports news) website April ninth, prior to Kisner’s debut at the Masters. It details, in short, a bit of the golfer’s downtime, which includes a healthy dose of recreational golf with friends (and accompanying friendly wagers). Oh, and beer…and a golf cart race. Check it out below.

Kisner was kind enough to reply to me on Twitter, confirming that he and everyone in the video was suspended from the club.

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.
