Kevin Na bet Bubba Watson $100 he couldn’t drive a 363-yard hole

Published

on

The 14th hole at Muirfield Village was playing at 363 yards yesterday. Traditionally, players lay up short of the water and play a wedge to the angled putting surface. Not Bubba Watson though, as egged on by Kevin Na.

The carry to the putting surface looked to be about 330 yards, and with neither player anywhere near contention, it seems Kevin Na decided to place a little wager with the longest hitter in his three-ball, Bubba Watson.

Per this tweet from the APTC (Association of Professional Tour Caddies), it looks like Na bet Watson one hundred bones he couldn’t drive the green.

As you can see from ShotLink, Bubba uncorked one and found the putting surface.

And as you can see from the tweet, Bubba gave his winnings to a kid in the gallery.

We reached out to the APTC for more details on the drive-the-green wager and will update this story with any additional information that comes across our desk. No word on what the newly enriched kid plans to do with the Benjamin — although we’d understand if he went in for $100 worth of Memorial milkshakes.

Watson finished at even par, tied for 65th. Na, finished tied for 74th at five over (and $100 poorer).

    I wish I could hear more stories of players who have no chance of winning a tournament would screw around during a competitive round…be great for the fans….

    Lol – They don’t make characters like Ted Ray in golf anymore – WRXers lament boring golf characters.
    Enter Bubba Watson – big swinging, big mouthed – WRXers can’t stand him.
    I say You go Bubba, keep slinging those rediculous drives! Maybe in 100 years they’ll look back and say they don’t make characters like Bubba Watson in golf anymore…

      Agree completely…I am flummoxed by the disdain for Bubba…

      He is seemingly a great son, husband and father….what more can you ask?

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.
