Twitter mercilessly roasts Tom Watson’s bizarre headphone game

Published

on

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!

    You allow comments on this but not the fellow Ralph Lauren sponsored JT ? PGA tour need to ban JT. Time for golf and the tour to get in line

    You lead a pathetic life when you must feel the need to go to twitter and talk about how Watson wears his headphones. Ever think he did it that way so they’d “stay” put ? Naaa, everyone should wear them the same way.

    Just further evidence that “Social Media” is an oxymoron.

    Ive never heard another human say “ legit “ when not on Twitter ….. I wouldn’t make fun of a guys earbuds while using slang that 12 year olds use. Brah. Bro or dude. Whichever you prefer. Time to be a grown man and wear your earbuds however you want.

Justin Thomas reveals success and failures from his list of 2020-21 goals

Published

on

Justin Thomas has always adopted a goal-oriented mindset, and with last week’s completion of the 2020-2021 super season, he took to social media to recap his accomplishments.

While Thomas only hit three of his 13 on-course goals (with a Ryder Cup victory still pending), he was four for four with his off the course ambitions.

Some may say this list was ambitious with goals such as ‘win 5+ times,’ and ‘win 2+ majors,’ but the world number six clearly believes in his abilities and encapsulates the type of drive that translates to career success.

Despite only capturing three of his 13 on-course goals, Thomas still accomplished a lot during this year, including a win at the Players Championship, and 11 other top-15 finishes, even if his season in totality wasn’t up to his lofty standards.

The 14-time PGA Tour winner still has some unfinished business. Thomas will have the opportunity to check off one more goal on September 24th-26th by bringing the Ryder Cup back to America.

Steve Stricker selects his U.S. Ryder Cup Captain’s picks

Published

on

On Wednesday morning at 10:00 A.M. ET, team U.S.A. captain Steve Stricker revealed his picks for the upcoming 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup.

Stricker used his six selections on Daniel Berger, Harris English, Tony Finau, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, and Jordan Spieth. They will join Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Patrick Cantlay, Justin Thomas, and Bryson DeChambeau, who automatically qualified via the Ryder Cup points system to complete Team U.S.A.

European team captain Padraig Harrington has yet to reveal his three selections for his squad. The Europeans who are currently qualified are Jon Rahm, Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton, Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, Paul Casey, Matt Fitzpatrick, Lee Westwood, and Shane Lowry.

The European team has won nine of the last twelve Ryder Cups, but team USA has won three of the last five on American soil.

The Ryder Cup begins on Friday, September 24 at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.

See what our members are saying and have your say on the picks here.

Bubba showcases rap skills at Solheim Cup; Lee Westwood aims cheeky dig at U.S. fans

Published

on

Yesterday at Inverness Golf Club in Toledo, Ohio, the European team capped off a 15-13 win at the Solheim Cup over the United States.

With only 30 PGA Tour pros simultaneously competing at the Tour Championship over the weekend, many of our favorite PGA Tour and European Tour pros dove head first into the festivities in Toledo.

We can confidently say that Bubba Watson, who was there all week supporting the ladies, caught Solheim Cup fever.

Ahead of the action on Monday, the multiple Masters champ got things underway with a Christian rap. We can’t make out all the lyrics but it appeared to end with the following:

“Got two Masters,

No double major,

But one Master,

Now praise the day,

Let’s go!”

While Lee Westwood, who is competing in England this week at the European Tour’s BMW PGA Championship, was not able to attend, the 25-time European Tour winner took to social media to share his thoughts as well.

Westwood was evidently poking fun at the fact that the American fans departed from the course when it was clear that they would not win.

Whatever your stance is regarding Westwood’s disapproval on the U.S. spectators’ prompt departure, we can all agree it was a nice change of pace to let the Solheim Cup take center stage, and it sure didn’t fail to disappoint.
