The Tiger Woods comeback season lasted all of four months. In December, Woods announced that he was once again healthy enough to play golf and even played in a PGA event. Two months later, he had to withdraw from a tournament due to back spasms. Today, Woods announced that he just had back surgery and will not be…
At a press event today for a new public golf course in Ridgedale, Mo., a kid reporter challenged old and fucked up Tiger Woods to a “friendly” competition from the range. Woods, sounding like he was reading a cue card, said, “There’s nothing friendly about it.” He smiled. Chuckles all around.
“He’s pooping his pants,” one fan yelled as Sergio Garcia backed off a shot on 10. Garcia bogeyed 10, bogeyed 11, and, already down two strokes, bounced his drive off a tree and into the bushes on 13. Somewhere in that stretch, the same thought crossed the minds of every single person watching: He’s doing it again.
Sergio Garcia overcame choking an easy putt to win at 18 by beating Justin Rose in the first playoff hole to claim the Masters title and his first major championship after failing in his first 73 appearances.
Matt Kuchar aced Augusta National’s 16th today, elevating the PGA pro to third place at the Masters and completing the 11th hole-in-one on that hole in the past 14 years. His prize is some sunscreen.
Russell Henley got a nifty-looking hole-out with his approach shot on the par-four fifth hole during today’s fourth round of the Masters:
Phil Mickelson is the same guy on the golf course as off, meaning that he gambles no matter where he is. Wherever Phil lays his bets is his home.
It’s Masters Week, which means that it’s time again to school you in the strange ways of CBS announcer, burnt-toast enthusiast, and general glass-of-skim-milk-made-into-a-person Jim Nantz. Rick Maese of the Washington Post did an excellent deep dive on Nantz this week and it’s filled with all kinds of milquetoast…
Dustin Johnson, reigning U.S. Open champion and current No. 1-ranked golfer in the world, might have to miss this weekend’s tournament after he suffered a back injury at his rental home in Augusta, Ga.
It should’ve been a runaway victory for Lexi Thompson, and it would’ve been if not for one tattletale viewer and some truly unfair rules. Thompson had a significant lead in the final round of the ANA Inspiration, the first LPGA major of the year, when a viewer wrote in to alert officials to a violation the previous day…
Tiger Woods announced in December he was returning to golf, but his broken, fucked-up body won’t allow it—as Woods announced on his website today that he’ll miss the Masters for the third time in four years.
Zach Johnson had a rather unusual way of getting a birdie on the 17th hole during this weekend’s Arnold Palmer Invitational—banking it in off the ball of Byeong Hun An.
This alligator was minding its own business, soaking up some rays on the edge of the fairway at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Thursday, when golfer Cody Gribble went out of his way to nudge it into the water.
“I don’t wanna get near you. I’m glad you got the fish.”
The fourth at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens is hungry for golf balls, as consecutive shots by Tyrrell Hatton and tournament leader Rickie Fowler ended up deposited in a divot housing the green-side sprinkler head.
Being a professional is about always showing up to work and being prepared to get naked if the job calls for it, which it occasionally does. Shawn Stefani hit into a water hazard fully clothed and got out of it in just his briefs.
Here’s Day-Glo leatherette Cialis tote Donald Trump, in a meeting with various manufacturing executive types, prodding General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt to tell the story of the time Trump boasted about being a rich person who plays golf (probably true) and then hit a hole-in-one on his own golf course (hmmmmm).
As Donald Trump makes the transition from rich dipshit golf club owner to rich dipshit golf club owner with a side gig as President of the United States, the poor guy has to make a number of lifestyle concessions. Now, he can only go to Mar-a-Lago on the weekend, and he’s spent only three out of the five weekends he’s…
Donald Trump, a wide-set dingus, spent the weekend entertaining Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe. The pair played some golf at Swamp Versailles, and Trump was spotted swinging around a big, stupid, gold driver.
Jordan Spieth is getting ready to play in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am this weekend, and after a practice round yesterday he got into it with some professional autograph hounds who took issue with Spieth’s refusal to sign their shit.
