Greenbrier owner Jim Justice seeks an increase in volunteers by holding a drawing for $20,000.
Late night and daytime talk shows are awesome. Always a fun way to kill some time, and you walk away with a true sense of who a celebrity or athlete really is.
Every time these shows decide to throw in some golf, there's never a dull moment.
Some cool, funny and special moments in golf have gone down on various talk-show stages around the world. Here are our favorite nine that you should know about.
After the cameras stop rolling, the final whistle blows, or the last note is played, the golf course is where you can find countless actors, athletes and musicians. Whether they're grinding to improve their games or just need an afternoon escape from the rat race, celebrities just love teeing it up (see, we're not so different after all).
Among the many perks of being famous, one is getting invited to some pretty sweet pro-am tournaments. And there's a really fun one coming up this week on the Web.com Tour - the BMW Charity Pro-Am.
Therefore, we thought it’d be cool to take a look at a few of the glitziest and most glamorous names you should keep an eye on out there this week.
Click here for the complete list of amateurs teeing it up at Thornblade Club, The Reserve at Lake Keowee, and The Preserve at Verdae.
As soon as the putt falls on 16, the heat is on for the best players in the world.
With so much on the line during PLAYERS week, the iconic 17th at TPC Sawgrass might be the hardest hundred-thirty-something-yard hole these guys play all year long.
Sure, 137 may not seem like much. But add in the humongous crowds, tricky crosswinds and the realization that the entire golfing world has eyes on you has made even the game's elite crumble.
Example 1A, from 2013:
Golf fans can find plenty to argue about, but there's one thing that's unanimous: ProTracer rules.
While stats and numbers are clearly important, there's nothing like actually seeing how that 320-yard bomb took flight.
In honor of THE PLAYERS, we thought it'd be cool to check out some of the best, some of the gnarliest, and some of the most ridiculous ProTracer moments from TPC Sawgrass.
It’s not often we see TOUR pros strip down to their skivvies. (Although Henrik Stenson and Gary Woodland come to mind.)
You can add Greg Owen to the list. But it wasn’t to save a stroke on his scorecard. It was to save a baby Blue Jay.
During Monday’s practice round at THE PLAYERS Championship, this happened …
Also keep in mind that these waters aren’t exactly alligators-free.
If this doesn’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, I don’t know what will.
No other sport has the merchandise potential golf has. And boy, do people take advantage.
While trying to save a few strokes recently, we came across some of the following products, currently for sale on Amazon. We’re not here to say these won’t help your game, but let’s just say we have our doubts.
It's one of the questions we hear constantly around the game of golf: "How do we make the game accessible to a younger fan base?"
This year, The Open Championship is taking what seems like a pretty awesome step in the right direction. At this year's event at Royal Troon, the event will open up The Open Camping Village. The village will feature 500 camping sites each night and will be free for fans 25 and under. Full details are available here.
At first blush, this seems like a festival type of Bonnaroo-meets-golf feel, with Royal Troon walking distance from the campground and what is sure to be a pretty great nightly party.
The only thing left to do is place your bets on which player will be spotted there first.
By the way, we've already set a precedent for camping out at events if anyone needs a camping buddy.
We're always pushing folks to take golf a little less seriously and the European Tour did just that when they let Sergio Garcia, Raphael Jacquelin and Thorbjorn Olesen captain four-man teams from Spain, France and Denmark in an attempt to break the Guinness World Records title for the fastest hole of golf by a team of four.
