19th Hole

Is this the strangest putting stroke ever seen on the PGA Tour?

Published

on

When it comes to putting, we all have our own little quirks and techniques, but during The American Express, one golfer took it to the next level displaying the oddest putting stroke you’ll see for some time.

Mark Hubbard was on his final hole during the second round of the event and knew that he was heading home from the event – comfortably missing the cut.

With that freedom in mind, Hubbard decided to have some fun and faced with a 10-foot putt for par, the 31-year-old hunched over – after doing an Elvis style little move – and placed his pinky just above the hosel.

Check out the bizarre moment here.

Hubbard missed the putt, and it was a moment that had golf fans on the Twittersphere truly baffled.


 

This is not a putting stroke I can see catching on!

Claude Harmon III explains why he was fired by Brooks Koepka

Published

on

Brooks Koepka and Claude Harmon III’s split was a surprise when it was announced in January, and the swing coach has given his view on the break up this week on The Filthy Lipout Golf Podcast.

On the podcast, Harmon III stated that he believed that Brooks “wanted to hear something different”, bringing an end to their highly successful 8-year spell.

“I just got fired by Brooks Koepka. I was with Brooks for eight years. You know, I think you get players that say ‘Listen, I’m just tired of hearing the same thing’ and I’ve always been one that would say, ‘Well listen, I’m not gonna make stuff up, I can try and tell you something different but we kind of know what you do as a player and if you’ve had success.’

You know Brooks had an eight-year run of some incredible golf, and I think Brooks is at a stage of his career having gone through an injury where maybe he wants to hear something different and that kind of stuff happens.”

Harmon was told he was being let go by Koepka the Wednesday after the Masters.

Since the split, Koepka has won his first Tour event since 2019 at the Phoenix Open and backed that up with a runner-up finish last week at the WGC-Workday Championship.

The 555-yard par 5 that Bryson will try and DRIVE this week at Bay Hill

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau has been a trailblazer in the game of golf over the past 18 months, and this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, we could well see the golf scientist attempt to drive a par 5.

The 6th hole at Bay Hill measures 555-yards; however, to carry the lake with the drive and hit the green, Bryson would need to fly the ball approximately 340-yards.

What’s more, Bryson has already committed to trying his luck on the hole this week if there is a little bit of downhill wind, telling Golf.com last month:

“If I play this year I will definitely do it. No. 6 at Bay Hill is one of those I’ve been eyeing. I think I can do some pretty cool things on it.”

A few players have unsuccessfully attempted to pull off the shot in the past, most notably back in 1998 when John Daly famously made an 18 on the hole. You can check out Daly’s disaster below.

If Bryson does pull off the shot, it also brings the remarkable 4-under par on a hole ‘Condor’ into the conversation.

Johnny Manziel plans to tee it up on the PGA Tour

Published

Johnny Manziel has revealed that he is aiming to become a pro golfer and has given himself 12 years to complete the task.

The former NFL quarterback is now 28-years-old and outlined his plans on the “Green Light with Chris Long” podcast, which he admitted will be a “very uphill battle”.

“I’m giving myself 12 years to try to play professional golf. I’m gonna grind this out and see how good I can get and see if I can’t enter in some tournaments and see if I can’t go play professional golf eventually. I think it is a very uphill battle, but that’s what I’m setting for my goals. I have 12 years to try and make a PGA Tour event.”

Manziel, who is currently playing in a fan controlled football league, revealed on social media last year that he is a 2 handicap and even won a long drive competition at a charity golf classic in 2020 with a recorded drive of 356 yards.

Check out Manziel’s swing below and let us know in the comments how you rate his chances of one day competing in a PGA Tour event!
