Yesterday’s Super Bowl was entertaining on a few levels. First, thanks to my brother-in-law for pointing out how phallic the microphone sideline reporter Erin Andrews was using and posting this pic to Facebook. As a former audio engineer and recording studio owner, I’ve never seen a microphone windscreen shaped like that. Great joke by the Fox audio crew. Nicely played Fox Sports!
Sometimes my golf game is like the performance the Denver Broncos put on Sunday. From their first snap, which went over Peyton Manning’s head and eventually ended up as a safety for the Seattle Seahawks, Denver was far from on their A game. I looked at it like shanking the first shot out of bounds in a big tournament and never recovering.
So for fun I posted this question on my Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus social networks:
What is the golf equivalent to the Denver Broncos performance in the Super Bowl?
The responses are quite entertaining:
Brian Remsberg @BRGolfer
Bubba missing a 3 ftr AFTER blowing lead? “@TheGolfSpace: What is the golf equivalent to the Denver Broncos performance in the Super Bowl?”

Well I thought that the Shark pretty much caved in that Masters that Faldo won.
ryder cup or masters
Rory blowing the Master’s on Sunday

John Retzer Or Kevin Na’s 16 out of the woods at the Valero?
Tiger missing a cut.
John F Duval
That would be like Tiger shooting a pair of 80s at Augusta to miss the cut.
A little more research: Tommy Armour made a 23 on a par-5 at the 1927 Shawnee Open.

Jean van de velde, cause just like the Donkeys,he shit himself…..

The most popular analogy seemed to be Van De Velde’s meltdown in the British Open at Carnoustie. Not sure that’s the best analogy as he blew the lead and should have won. Denver never seemed to get off the tee and never had the lead.

Hey thanks for the mention! Great question you posed. I think you can include any Tiger mishap over the last 2-3 year’s in any majors!
Haha no problem.
