Praise Dionysus, Beer Pong Golf has arrived!

Beer Pong Golf

We’ve seen beer pong-inspired golf games. We’ve seen cornhole golf games enter the backyard activity pantheon.

However, we’ve yet to see a beer pong golf game in which you can actually drink the substance in question.

So, we say, cheers to the holy of holies that is Beer Pong Golf. Chip it! Drink it!

The equipment: Two 48’’ x 23’’ boards. 10 slots. Green plastic mats. Hollow golf balls. Players place the mats 12 feet from the board and chip. So so many great things, the concept is simple.

Then, as international beer pong law mandates, when a player from the opposing team/your opponent pitches the ball into your cup, you drink (as illustrated below). Much fun and drunkenness ensues! Yas, bros!

    The clownish stupidity surrounding golf is pathetic and reflects on the type of desperate people who are seeking fun rather than practicing to perform on the golf course. Immature minds and clowns litter the golf courses of the nation.

      Isn’t that rather harsh indictment of the 25 million golfers that trudge and drive on the golf courses of the nation? So what that 95% of them can’t break 100 without cheating, the guys who play these golf skill games are usually the cream of the crop… of clowns.

2021 Butterfield Bermuda Championship: Best DFS plays from each price range

Published

on

The PGA Tour heads to Southampton, Bermuda, this week to play the Butterfield Bermuda Championship at Port Royal Golf Club.

Port Royal Golf Club is a 6,828-yard, Par 71 layout, featuring Bermudagrass greens. This is the third edition of the tournament, and the second time it will be the primary Tour stop for the week (it was previously an alternate event). The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones. Last year’s ended up being very exciting down the stretch as Brian Gay edged out Wyndham Clark in a playoff.

The field at the Bermuda Championship leaves a lot to be desired but will feature some interesting names on Tour such as Patrick Reed, Matt Fitzpatrick, Mito Pereira, Seamus Power, and Danny Willett.

Let’s take a look at each DraftKings price range and identify the best plays for each in GPP’s.

10,000+

Mito Pereira $10,500:

Pereira has come on strong to begin his PGA Tour career, with three top six finishes in as many starts. A prolific winner on the Korn Ferry Tour, Mito knows what it takes to go low and win in a birdie fest. Additionally, the Chilean rates out beautifully for Port Royal Golf Club and ranks 1st in the field in Strokes Gained: Approach, 7th in Fairways Gained, and 4th in Birdie or Better.

9,000+

Hayden Buckley $9,900:

Buckley is a relatively unknown player on Tour at this point in his career, but has shown he is supremely talented. He has won on PGA Tour Canada and the Korn Ferry Tour and looks primed to have a breakout campaign on the PGA Tour. He has come on strong so far this season with back to back top ten finishes at the Sanderson Farms Championship and the Shriners Children’s Open.

8,000+

Scott Stallings $8,600:

Scott Stallings began his 2021 season nicely with a sixth place finish at the Fortinet Championship in September and now heads to a course in which he has shown that he is more than comfortable. He finished 26th at Port Royal last season and 18th back in 2019. His prowess for playing well on shorter coastal tracks should set him up nicely this week in Bermuda.

7,000+

Kiradech Aphibarnrat $7,500:

After a very difficult few years while recovering from injury, Kiradech Aphibarnrat is starting to show some signs of returning to form. When he is playing at his best, a coastal Bermuda track is the ideal spot for Kiradech as he has shown he is prone to strong performances on similar style courses. He finished 11th at this event last season despite being in pretty horrific form overall.

While his most recent PGA Tour starts have not been fruitful, the same cannot be said for his most recent start on the European Tour at the BMW PGA Championship back in September. The native of Thailand finished in second place just one shot behind winner Billy Horschel and had a real chance to win until the very last hole.

Two of Aphibarnrat’s biggest strengths are his ability to find the fairway and his ability to catch a hot putter on Bermudagrass. In his past five starts, he has gained 1.4 strokes per round on the field in “Fairways Gained” and gains an average of 0.65 strokes per round on Bermudagrass.

6,000+

Kramer Hickok $7,000:

At last year’s Bermuda Championship, Hickok finished in eighth place, which was the best finish of his career to that point. In retrospect, it makes a great deal of sense that the 29-year-old would play well at Port Royal. The course plays quite penal from the rough, and one of the biggest strengths of Kramer’s is his driving accuracy, as evidenced by his ranking of fifth in the field for fairways gained. Also, Bermudagrass has been far and away Hickok’s best-putting surface to this point in his career.

In his past 36 rounds, Hickok ranks 3rd in the field on courses that feature Bermudagrass and are under 7,200 yards. It also helps that the former Texas Longhorn ranks 9th in the field in Strokes Gained: Total in extremely windy conditions. His skill in that department could loom large this week as we are expected to get winds north of 20 mph.

Fan who returned 600th touchdown ball wants round of golf with Tom Brady

Published

on

Over the weekend, Tom Brady threw his 600th career touchdown pass; a 9 yard strike to wide receiver Mike Evans.

Instead of giving the ball to the legendary quarterback, Evans tossed it in the stands to a fan wearing his number 13 “Evans” jersey. That decision ended up being quite a costly one for the Buccaneers.

29-year-old Byron Kennedy was the man who received the ball, and thankfully decided to give it back to the team, in exchange for some other memorabilia. Experts have predicted that the 600th touchdown ball would be worth about $500,000 at auction, but Kennedy didn’t receive anything close to that value.

According to Michael David Smith of NBC Sports, the fan had a special request that would appeal to golf fans. Kennedy asked that Brady play a round of golf with him: “Renegotiate, no, but play a round of golf as repayment? That’d be pretty cool,” Kennedy told Andrew Siciliano.

Considering the class that Kennedy showed by giving the ball back for little in return, let’s hope Brady honors the request.

Latest winner on Euro Tour endured locked toilet nightmare before final round

Published

on

Jeff Winther had the weekend of his life. The Danish golfer had never had a professional victory in his career; in fact he had never even had a 54 hole lead on the European Tour.

That all changed when the 33-yearo-ld surged to take the lead in Saturday’s third round at the Mallorca Golf Open in Spain. However, Winther’s incredible weekend finish almost didn’t happen.

While Jeff was preparing to head to the course and convert his two shot lead into a victory at Golf Santa Ponsa, disaster struck. As Winther describes in the video below, he almost never even made it to the course for his tee time, and had his 6-year-old daughter to thank for his escape.

During his preparations for the round, he got stuck in the bathroom: “After breakfast, I went to have a shower and my wife came in to use the bathroom as well,” he said. “The door closed, and there’s no lock, but we locked ourselves in. There’s no lock on the door, but the handle didn’t work.

“Our little girl, Nora, 6 years old, had to go and find guys at reception to break down the door. We were in there for 45 minutes, I think. I thought, not Sunday, you’re leading the freaking event. Might not get there for your tee time. What a morning.”

Thankfully, this story has a happy ending. Winther was able to get to the course on time and shoot even par on Sunday to maintain a one shot lead and earn his first ever victory on the European Tour.
