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.
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.
Well, that didn’t last too long. It’s been two months since Tiger Woods returned to golf after a series of surgeries kept him away from the game for over a year, and now the 41-year-old’s body is acting up again.
Golf is, allegedly, a gentleman’s game. Some may make the argument that thinly veiled ass is gentlemanly, and I’m in no position to debate them, especially considering that Gary Woodland’s trousers were white. Is showing your butt (but just a little bit) more noble than getting your pants all muddy?
Jason Bohn left this weekend’s Honda Classic on Friday and headed to a hospital after reporting chest pains to the tournament’s medical staff. He was taken to a Palm Beach hospital in an ambulance shortly after finishing his round on Friday. According to the Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte, “had it happened on the golf…
Mark Wahlberg, famous for such movies as Ted and Ted 2, is, it turns out, a real damn good golfer. Look at the curve on this bad boy.
Tiger Woods missed the cut at The Open by seven strokes after shooting a second round 75 Saturday. It’s the second straight major championship Woods has failed to reach the end of, the first time in his career he’s missed the cut at consecutive majors.
Phil Mickelson’s money was at the heart of a recently concluded federal money laundering case, according to ESPN’s Outside the Lines. OTL reports on the case of Gregory Silveira, who plead guilty last week to money laundering charges for moving $2.75 million through multiple bank accounts in an illegal gambling…
Tiger Woods isn't golfing. He's taking some time off to rest, to heal, and to work on his game. But according to one dude who probably doesn't know anything, it's all a coverup, and Woods is actually serving a secret Tour suspension for a failed drug test. Today, both the PGA Tour and Woods's agent flatly deny the…
Holy shit! This is Tiger Woods's third shot on the par-4 tenth (his first of the day) at the Farmers Insurance Open. Jesus Christ, he just bangs this thing like a railroad spike, less like a chip shot than Miguel Cabrera rocking a line drive up the third base line, or any Dwight Howard hook shot ever.
Professional golfer Robert Allenby's bizarre kidnapping story—the one in which he claims that he was kidnapped from a Honolulu wine bar, beaten, robbed, and then dumped in a park six miles away—keeps springing more leaks.
The Tour Championship begins today, and it's the first time since 1992 that neither Tiger Woods nor Phil Mickelson qualified. We are, by any reasonable observer, toward the tail-end of a generational torch-passing at the top. The world's No. 1 certainly qualifies as a reasonable observer.
Are the top golfers in the world affected by the quality of their company? Do they lift their performance when they're paired with great players? You wouldn't immediately think so. After all, no golfer reaches the highest levels of the profession without having learned how to block out distractions and simply play…
John Daly, professional golf's drunkest uncle, is 47 years old and still playing the game like someone who's there for the sunshine and the beer more than he is the actual golf.
Paula Lavigne of Outside The Lines has conducted a thorough investigation into the PGA Tour's status as a non-profit organization, and has found that the tour's commitment to charity is not nearly as strong as the suits at the PGA would like everyone to believe.
Here's something to remember if you played 18 this weekend: 19-year-old Jordan Spieth won his first PGA Tour event on Sunday, outlasting David Hearn and 2007 Masters champ Zach Johnson at the John Deere Classic. And it was arguably a long time coming for Spieth. (P.S.: You're so old.)
Deer antler spray may not be effective at delivering a growth hormone, but it does keep giving strength to dumb stories.
Vijay Singh admitted to using deer antler spray, a "supplement" containing the banned substance IGF-1. But deer antler spray is so ineffective at delivering IGF-1 that the PGA tour has decided not to punish him. This is almost more embarrassing for Singh: he may not be suspended, but he did get scammed.
