Golf Fail Compilation

This is for all the golfers out there.. The first one is priceless and I love the guys driving the golf cart 60 mph and catching air.  Thinking a few people may have died in this video and if they didn’t they had to be severely injured.  If I have people following me around with a video camera when I golf I could add a few clips to this video.   Anyone have a good video of a golf fail?  I am not talking about bad golf gear. I have plenty of photo’s of myself in bad gear… see above…

Rory McIlroy vs Machine

This is not only awesome for the golf fans out there but for the machine/tech heads out there it is just as awesome.   I don’t think this was rehearsed many times based on Rory’s response to the machines comments.  Either way this is awesome.  Golf is hard if you are trying to hit a ball a certain distance at a target and then add in the height/trajectory they are trying to hit the ball and then it is nearly impossible.  Before watching post a comment on who you think will win.

How hard is a golf ball…

How hard is a golf ball… Watch this video of a golf ball hitting steel at 150 mph.

This one you will not believe, but @ 70,000 pictures a second will make you a believer. Whether you are a golfer or not, this is pretty amazing. I thought golf balls were fairly hard.

I thought golfers and non golfers would be interested in seeing this.  No one has a swing  speed of 150 mph, including Tiger Woods who is just under 130 mph. 

I had no idea the golf ball compresses this much. But first a little history I recently learned: 

1-     The Pro V-1 golf ball by Titleist is actually a three part ball, but you have to have a club head  speed of at least 100 mph or more to be able to Read more

The What If Golf Story

This is a “what if” golf story –

What if you were playing in the club championship tournament finals and the match was halved at the end of 17 holes. You had the honor and hit your ball a modest two hundred fifty yards to the middle of the fairway, leaving a simple six iron to the pin. Your opponent then hits his ball, lofting it deep into the woods to the right of the fairway. Being the golfing gentleman that you are, you help your opponent look for his ball. Just before the permitted five minute search period ends, your opponent says: “Go ahead and hit your second shot and if I don’t find it in time, I’ll concede the match.” You hit your ball, landing it Read more

Golf Skills

Professional golfers truly are amazing.  Many people think they just get up there and hit the ball and get lucky.  That they are really not looking to land the ball in an area on the green or fairway the size of a manhole cover.  Most of us who golf don’t like to practice and when we do practice he really don’t practice.  We may go out with a few friends and grab a bucket and a few beers.  Start off by hitting a few wedge shots and really trying to hit them to a specific area.  Then after 15 swings we can’t help it an go right to the driver and try to hit the ball farther than any person on the range.  Read more

Things A Caddie Should Not Say

For those of you who do not golf, let me fill you in on what a caddie is supposed to do.  He/she is supposed to carry your clubs, fix your divots/ball marks, talk to you about the yardage of the hole with regards to hazards and help you read a green or two.  He is never supposed to disagree with you or tell you that you are wrong. He is supposed to help you with your confidence and even if you are not lined up perfectly for your 20 footer, he is supposed to say perfect line.    Read more

Poor Tiger Woods

Yeah, right.  Poor Tiger Woods my ass.  The guy gives $750,000,000 (yes, that is 7 zeros) to his ex-wife and can still go out and buy this place.  Oh, and then fix it up with $15,000,000 (yes, another 6 zeros) because it just wasn’t right.  I was never a fan of Tiger until all this controversy came up.  The guy walked on water and could do no wrong.  Now I can watch TV on the weekends and not have everything be about Tiger Woods.  Before they would interrupt a basketball game and even Judge Judy to let you know Tiger birdied #15 and is only 9 shots back.

For All the Golfers Out There

This is a must watch video.  This could go down as another RSA, but, I am  just going to post it as an educational video.  This is a classic video either way you look at it and I love the hosts look at the end when he is trying to figure out if the guy is kidding or not.   This video could be for the novice or the veteran golfer, but please do take notes and try to use a few of the tips while playing your next round of golf.   Read more
