‘Big Little Lies’ star Kathryn Newton showcases stunning golf swing at Pebble Beach

Published

on

The AT&T Pro-Am Charity Challenge was a little different at Pebble Beach this year, but it still showcased the talent for golf some celebrities possess and none more so than actress Kathryn Newton.

Newton has starred in the HBO hit show ‘Big Little Lies’ and Netflix’ ‘The Society’, but if she hadn’t decided on a career in acting, the 24-year-old might well have been starring on the LPGA Tour.

In an interview last year with WWD, Newton revealed that she grew up on a golf course, began playing in tournaments at the age of eight, had planned on being part of the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open before acting commitments got in the way and how she even takes her clubs to her sets.

On Wednesday at Pebble, Newton showed just how good her game is, striping an iron to 5-feet on the devilishly hard 17th par-3.

Here are some more clips of Newton’s silky smooth swing that will leave most amateurs tremendously envious!

    I was watching the highlights and seriously thought she was a Symetra Tour player or something. I don’t have TV so I never saw her acting or heard of her. Her swing is pure silk.

Justin Rose hits epic shank during round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published

on

Hitting a shank is one of the more mortifying moments a golfer can have, and while it may be a common feature in a lot of player’s weekend rounds, it’s not often you get to see one from a pro – but day one at Bay Hill was different.

Justin Rose was the man in question who hit the shank and did so early on day one when faced with a long bunker shot.

Thank’s to PGA Tour Live, viewers tuning into action early on Thursday got to see the shank in all it’s glory, and the epic sound of the ball hitting the hosel is not to be missed.

Rose made bogey on the hole but put the shank behind him and stiffed it from a greenside bunker just a couple of holes later.

Billy Horschel snaps back at heckler at Bay Hill

Published

on

Fans are back this week at Bay Hill, and with it, the odd comment from those outside the ropes to those inside.

On day one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Billy Horschel was the target of a fan who decided that he’d give his expert opinion to the 5-time winner on the PGA Tour, telling him that he had read a putt badly.

Horschel took his time after the shout from the fan but then fired back at him, saying: “There’s a reason why I’m on that side of the ropes, and you’re on that side. I think my talent level is just a touch better.” 

Check out the incident in the video below.

It isn’t the first time the 34-year-old has put a fan in their place at an event either, as one person found out a couple of year’s ago at the Zurich Classic.

Published

Hop on to social media during a live sporting event, and emotions are spilling over, but when it comes to golf, the prominent feeling is often anger and frustration.

That is down to gambling, and according to a new study from OnlineGambling.Ca, golf supporters are the angriest on social media, with 42% of all tweets about the sport being classified as an angry comment.

The study also found that cricket and ice hockey fans show the most love for their team, with 38% of their social media posts being filled with love. Basketball fans seem to be the saddest with their teams’ results, with 38% of reactions being unhappy.

If you have ever gambled on golf or been on social media during an event, the results are probably less surprising to those that haven’t!
