‘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.

Bryson and Brooks among golfers spotted at Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder heavyweight classic

Published

on

Last night offered up one of the greatest heavyweight boxing clashes of the modern era, with Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder completing their trilogy, and it was a fight that had several PGA Tour professionals gripped.

Bryson DeChambeau was one of those who wasn’t going to miss out on the epic clash, who posted his evening’s excitement to his Instagram stories.

Bryson was even asked for a prediction before the showdown, and the 28-year-old backed Tyson Fury, who eventually would prevail in the 11th round with a knockout victory.

Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Tony Finau, and Ian Poulter were also at the fight, all posting to their Instagram, with DJ’s fiancee Paulina even capturing the knockout punch.

 

As it turns out, last night’s victor Tyson Fury also has an impressive golf swing, as you can see from the video below of him piping a drive over 300 yards.

Tiger Woods photographed back on golf course with son Charlie

Published

on

It’s been a while since we’ve had an update on Tiger Woods’ rehabilitation after his single-car accident earlier this year, but on Saturday, two photographs emerged which show the 15-time major champion’s recovery seemingly going very well.

The post, widely shared by TWLegion, shows Woods watching his son Charlie on the course with now just a sleeve on his right leg and with a club in hand.

The photos have thrilled golf fans, with many now buoyed into believing a comeback is very much on the cards. Eagle-eyed supporters even caught sight of Charlie’s Puma golf shoes, with some joking that he’s been spending too much time in Rickie Fowler’s company!

At the Ryder Cup, Captain Steve Stricker told media that Woods’ focus was on making a playing comeback again, and this update looks to have provided even more encouragement that the 82-time PGA Tour winner may well do just that.
