PhilMickelsonEagleUSOpen

Phil Mickelson trails Justin Rose by 1 stroke in the final round of the US Open. Phil has had an up and down round today, but just holed out a wedge from the rough on the tenth hole for an eagle. Check out the shot and his ultra-dorky reaction to the ball going in, after the jump.

THE PLAYERS Championship - Round Three

It was the joke that went too far. Before Sergio Garcia’s racial comment, the media battle between Tiger Woods and Garcia was almost comical. They were going back and forth taking shots at each other. Woods called Garcia a whiner and Garcia responded by telling the media, “That’s probably right,” and he went on to say “It’s also probably the first thing he’s (Woods) told you guys that’s true in 15 years. I know what he is like. You guys are finding out.” Now while those comments were a little harsh, it still remained a silly argument. Read the rest of this entry »

Adam Scott is the newest Masters champion, winning in a playoff over Angel Cabrera in the 77th Masters to become the first Australian born player to capture the green jacket.

And from the looks of my Twitter feed, Scott has not only made the country of Australia happy, but women all over the world.

Scott shot a three-under 69 on Sunday, finished with a nine-under score for the tournament and added a birdie on No. 10 in the second playoff hold to cap an epic finish between the two golfers who refused to lose all week at Augusta National Golf Club.

“It’s just an amazing feeling,” Scott said in Butler Cabin, just before Bubba Watson helped him into the green jacket. Read the rest of this entry »

Bubba Watson Hovercraft Golf Cart

Yes, you read the title of this article correctly.  Bubba Watson not only has the original “General Lee” from the hit TV show, Dukes Of Hazzard, but he also now has a damn hovercraft golf cart.

I’m glad to see that Bubba is having a great time spending his money.  In his career, Bubba has earned just over $17 million.  Let’s hope he’s not sliding down the slippery slope that so many athletes have before.

But anyhow, check out this video of his new toy and just salivate.

Bubba Watson Masters Champions Dinner Menu

We love it when readers send us links or emails about interesting things they would like us to write about or include in a future article. On Tuesday, 2012 Masters Champion Bubba Watson, tweeted out the menu for the Masters Champions Dinner. As a tradition, the defending champion gets to pick the menu. It’s just another cool thing you may not have known about the Masters.

Nothing really extravagant on the menu. Just grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, and mac n’ cheese. Some good ol’ American classics. But apparently Nick Faldo had a problem with it…

 

Want to know what Faldo had at his dinner?  Maybe you’ll respond to Faldo’s tweet after you see.

We received an email from a reader named Roger who said he created this absolutely fantastic infographic about the Masters Champions Dinner.

If you’re an avid golfer like myself, then you know that starting Thursday is the Masters from Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Definitely one of the coolest traditions at the Masters is the Champions dinner. A chance for past winners of the first major of the year to come together share a few laughs and enjoy some great food.

Once Watson posted the signed dinner menu on Twitter, my timeline exploded. People were bashing the champ on his dinner choice. Guess these individuals forgot what he said last year when the green jacket was placed on him. Watson mentioned he would serve Waffle House at the dinner. Yes the same place that serves the scattered, smothered, and covered hash browns.

I am not a huge golf fan. I mean, I check in now and then to see how everyone is doing, and I usually know who has won the recent majors, but I am by no means a big time golf nut. But, when I heard about this story, I had to know more.

Tiger Woods Lindsey Vonn Facebook 1

Reportedly dating since November, Tiger Woods and former Olympic gold medalist skier, Lindsey Vonn are now “Facebook” official.  Thank god!  After all this time, we needed a real conformation.

Today, Tiger posted a fantastically unnecessary Facebook update to let us all in on the widely known secret: Read the rest of this entry »

Ben Crane, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan are back at it again in "2.Oh"

Ben Crane, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan are back at it again in “2.Oh”

Last June, in one of the best, and surely most surprising athlete YouTube videos of all time, the “Golf Boys” brought us “Oh Oh Oh”.  The video was sponsored by Farmers Insurance and for every 100k views, they were going to donate $1k to charity.  The foursome of Ben Crane, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan took “boy band” and “PGA Tour Professional”, to another level.

Never in a million years did I think this cast of characters would ever make a video like this.  But luckily for us, they are back with their second installment.  “2.Oh”.  Video after the jump Read the rest of this entry »
