Golf Stock Photo Fail – Just Plain Absurd

This is the continuance of my brilliant series on boneheaded stock golf photos, Golf Stock Photo Fail.  This is part five in an ongoing series highlighting the idiotic golf photos commercially available out there on the interwebs.  How someone would pay actual money to use one of these is almost more mind boggling than the photos themselves.

Today’s title is “Just Plain Absurd.”  You’ll see why.

Jeff Spicoli putts a pink ball (Jordan Spieth style, not looking at the ball) on snow? “My father is a television repair man. He has an ultimate set of tools.”

“Hey lady. The hole is over here!”

“Tend the flag stick for me please. I can’t see the hole from 3.5 feet.” Also known as, a great woman’s ass is great advertising for men (heterosexual men of course)

Gigantic woman the size of the entire green lines up putt facing away from the green in the rough, with no shirt on. Makes sense.

I honestly can’t even come up with anything for this one. I have no words.

I pooped my skort!

I’ve long suspected that arab golfers tee up 3-woods on the putting green

Half-inch putts are best tapped in late in the day, with un-branded wedges which are rotated 90 degrees from the target line

Golf Stock Photo Fail – Golf Equipment

This is the “equipment” segment of my ground breaking golf journalistic series, “Golf Stock Photo Fail.”

NO, you idiot!

Yes of course I tap in putts with a left-handed 3-wood from 1995. Doesn't everyone?

Yes of course I tap in putts with a left-handed 3-wood from 1995. Doesn’t everyone?

“Bob what a great driver! What kind is it?”
“I don’t know Fred. It came with all the branding photoshopped out!”

Right. A right-handed blade teed up very high, with a left-handed glove. Awesome.

I see nothing odd about this photo at all. Don’t most golfers wear hiking boots and rain pants while teeing up an old yellow range ball 4-inches above the ground with a 9-iron in hand?

PULL THE PIN!!! Penalty for leaving pin in if ball hits it! By the way, great ballet shoes!

Worst greens in town! They’re so bad the dude has to hit a 3-wood (from 1995), from two inches!

“The greens were so bad I had to chip with a pitching wedge from two inches!”

I always practice my chipping using only my 3-wood, while wearing a suit, in a Windows XP screensaver background.

Golf Stock Photo Fail – The Golf Bag – How Not to Wear it and What Not to Put in It

This post is a continuation of the hard hitting golf journalistic series “Golf Stock Photo Fail.” Subtitle: “The Golf Bag.” Be sure to check out part one, Golf Stock Photo Fail – Golf Technique, part two: Golf Stock Photo Fail – The Joy of Leaving Putts Short, and part three Golf Stock Photo Fail – Hump Your Golf Partner.

Apparently the golf bag is a very foreign thing for photographers, advertisers, and people who don’t golf. It can be very complicated, you know, slinging a bag over one’s shoulder. The complexity of the golf bag worsens when one tries to put clubs in it. How many? Two, none, seven? Which ones?

How two morons carry golf bags. As a bonus, neither bag has no more than 4-5 clubs.

Too dumb to figure out the shoulder strap… Awesome. At least he only has 5 clubs! Seriously. Between the two golfers posing for the image and the photographer(s) nobody could figure this out?

“I don’t need to stinking 14 clubs! Wait this bag has a shoulder strap? I thought golf bags were to be carried under the armpit.” –The more I look at this, the more it looks like the bag and the dude were photoshopped together.

Why is this lady carrying an empty golf bag? And why has the photographer rotated the horizon of this shot 36.2 degrees counter-clockwise? And what about the poor, frightened children who obviously have to pee?

“I’m a badass mother f**ker. I only need 7 clubs but I do need a golf cart to carry my bag with 7 clubs. And just because, I put the bag on the passenger’s side of the cart. Don’t mess with me.”

“I can’t believe this bitch is making me carry a tour bag with only 5 clubs.”

Golf Stock Photo Fail – Hump Your Golf Partner

This is part three of the web’s best golf series on awful golf stock photos, “Golf Stock Photo Fail.” Part One is about golf technique and Part two is about the Joy of Leaving Putts Short.

This entry is called “Hump Your Golf Partner.” In today’s series, we learn a little too much about Viagra or Cialis, and how awful golf photographers have done a fantastic job capturing the moment.  I can’t think of any more awkward golf photos than ones like these below… FORE!

Did you know that women’s putting stats from 2.5 feet are greatly improved when they’re being dry-humped?

Bob! This shaft is stiff!

Bob! This shaft is stiff!

The nerve, crotch grabbing and humping in front of children, and 4-seater golf carts.

Oh goodness yes! A little to the left. By the way, who are you?

The look on her face is great… “Hey wait a second. I feel that. Down boy.”

Putting never felt so good, even for hispanic couples…


Well Richard, you’ve apparently refilled your Cialis prescription!

She likes it…

Uh, don’t let the mormon church see this one…

My incredible journalistic golf series “Golf Stock Photo Fail” continues with an awesome subject, the joy of leaving putts short!

Never before has missing a putt short been so celebrated, especially by the guy on the right with the right handed glove.  And what the hell is the other guy in the background looking at?

Never before has missing a putt short been so celebrated, especially by the guy on the right with the right handed glove. And what the hell is the other guy in the background looking at?

This guy is thrilled to have missed his putt short. What the hell is in his left hand?

“Yay! I missed a putt on the practice green!!!”

So joyous, missing putts short. Hope this guy doesn’t hurt himself when he lands.

Uh. NO.


The next three photos are great! Each golfer fist pumps and shows their joy in missing their putts short. And to add to the dramatic effect, the photographer has rotated the horizon about 29 degrees clockwise! Wowsies!

In the voice of Vern Lundqust, “NO sir!”

“I’ve never missed a putt so good!”

“Yay! Short again! I rule!”

No no no no no. NO.
