Hit by Tiger’s ball or Rory’s tee? A very important golf-related “would you rather?”



Redditor Tijuanas posted the broken tee featured above. He claims it’s Rory McIlroy’s and that it hit him in the face while he was in the gallery at the British Open.

Now, the half tee has the look of an official Open ball-perching device. We’ll assume Tijuanas is telling the truth, but even if the story is a fabrication, it brings to mind an excellent golf spectating dilemma.

Would you rather get hit in the face with Rory McIlroy’s tee, ala Tijuanas, or plunked with Tiger Woods’ tee shot, ala Colin Hauck?

If you missed the Clauck incident, he captured the whole thing on video. Woods’ second shot hit Hauch, dropping him on the spot.

So, what say you, GolfWRX members, do stand in the path of the projectile for a meeting with Tiger Woods and a signed glove or is the pain not worth it?

    Give me the tee from Rors. Nothing against Tiger, but after seeing a woman get hit on the head by one of Tony Finau’s drives @ Colonial, I want nothing to do with that scenario.

    Is this topic worthy of its own article? Probably not. But then again, here I am commenting on it.

    The choice is an easy one…I would take one off the chin to get a signed glove and a hand shake from Tiger. Opportunity to go meet and interact with arguably the best player of all time.

    I love Rors too and think he will go down as one of the game’s greats but a tee just doesn’t compare.

    If you get a signed glove for getting hit with a ball, then you gotta go with getting hit with the ball – even if it hurts a bit. If you get ht with a t all you get is a broken t and a bunch of people who don’t believe it’s really Rory’s.

    Hauck, Clauck or Hauch?
    Tiger’s tee shot or approach shot?

Ralph Lauren drops Justin Thomas following homophobic slur



On Friday evening, Ralph Lauren announced that they had ended their partnership with Justin Thomas after the latter uttered a homophobic slur at last week’s Tournament of Champions.

In a statement, Ralph Lauren expressed that while discontinuing their longstanding relationship, they hope that “Mr. Thomas does the hard and necessary work in order to partner with us again…using his platform to promote inclusion.”

The incident which led to JT being dropped from the brand occurred on the 4th hole during the third round of the Tournament of Champions – which you can see in the video below.

Following the third round at the Tournament of Champions, Thomas told Golf Channel:

“There’s just no excuse. I’m an adult; I’m a grown man. There’s absolutely no reason for me to say anything like that. It’s terrible. I’m extremely embarrassed. It’s not who I am. It’s not the kind of person that I am. But it’s … unfortunately I did it, and I have to own up to it, and I’m very apologetic.

Like I said, it’s inexcusable. I’m speechless. It’s bad. There’s no other way to put it. I need to do better. I need to be better. It’s definitely a learning experience. I deeply apologize to anyone, and everybody who I offended and I’ll be better because of it.”

Social media divided over Bubba Watson’s new Ping iron covers



On Wednesday, Bubba Watson did what most people do these days when they receive a gift they are excited about – post it on social media and find out what everyone else thinks.

In the like camp:

While there was also plenty of disdain for the covers:

What do you think of Bubba’s new Ping iron covers, WRXers?

Twitter mercilessly roasts Tom Watson’s bizarre headphone game



Social media users were left bemused during round one’s coverage of the Sony Open, after seeing Tom Watson appear for an interview wearing his headphones in a frankly bizarre manner.

CBS’ Kyle Porter was quick to jump on the oddity, tweeting: “Legit never seen another human wear headphones like Tom Watson wears them.”

What followed was an all out roast where Twitter users mercilessly mocked the new fashion statement from Tom Watson with some hilarious responses.

However, Watson did receive some support, with one user declaring that: He’s Tom Watson! He can wear them any way he wants!”

Either way, I don’t see Watson’s headphone game setting a trend anytime soon!
