WATCH: Cameraman takes a worm burner to the gut

Published

on

A cameraman capturing footage during a fantasy golf camp with Graeme McDowell took an errant drive straight to the gut; directly from the extreme heel of Angelo The Assassin’s driver to the victim’s stomach.

I know what you’re thinking… “That’s awful! Is he OK?” Yes, he’s fine, so you have our permission to laugh at his expense.

When one of @graeme_mcdowell ‘s Fantasy Golf Campers rips a 145mph drive on the first tee of the very first hole of first inaugural fantasy weekend into your big belly at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando, you count your lucky stars the Callaway didn’t do real damage. Angelo, “The Assassin,” felt horrible for the accident and we quickly became friends. Many thanks to GMac and Ritz Orlando golf staff for making sure I was OK. GMac made Angelo hit driver on the range while using Trackman, which is how we knew it was 145mph! I’ve been a golf photographer for 20 years, had a few close calls, but never seriously hit…until the Assassin came to town. #golf #golfphotography #gmac #ritzcarlton #orlando #florida #usa #assassin

This also proves that while Callaway’s Truvis golf balls look like soccer balls, they hurt just as bad as regular golf balls when you take them off the stomach at 145 mph (sounds generous for a worm burner, but alas).

In celebration of this wonderfully entertaining video, here’s a few more golf fails that might be good for a laugh or two. Don’t worry, they’re all physically alright… although likely mentally scarred. Enjoy!

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.
