Thanks to Golf Pride for joining up with HOG for our 2019 “First Major” giveaway. The contest involved picking the winner of the Masters, who also plays Golf Pride grips. The response was great, and as expected many people picked Tiger Woods. Yes, Tiger does in fact play Golf Pride, as 80% of the PGA Tour does. Even more impressive than the 80% is that Golf Pride doesn’t sponsor players. That 80% is voluntary!
The winner of the 13 limited edition Golf Pride grips and cool T-shirt is “Todd” on twitter. Woot! Congratulations Todd. We will be pinging you for your shipping information!
The Masters Tournament never disappoints. Never. What an incredible week. Congratulations to Tiger Woods on the historic win, his 15th major. Please people, don’t ask if Tiger will break Jack’s major championship record.
The golf media world is about to go all in on Tiger again. Be ready for it.
What an insane day at the Masters Tournament today. There were many strange, odd, crazy, whacky things that happened today. Here’s the list, as best as I can remember.
Rory McIlory and Phil Mickelson spent more time hitting their second shots off of pine straw than they did off of grass. One of Rory’s drives was so far off line it ended up in the dashboard of a golf cart. Most people didn’t even know there were golf carts at Augusta.
Adam Scott’s apparel scripting went retro today, with puffy pleated pants. As awkward as it looked, it apparently worked. He’s tied for the lead.
Tiger and Phil Mickelson chomped gum like mad men!
John Rahm hit a dead shank on the 8th fairway. The hosel rocket went 90 degrees to his right, into the trees.
#1 golfer in the world, Justin Rose, missed the cut.
Zach Johnson hit a topped duck-hook 3-wood on the par-5 second hole, right into the gallery. Duck and cover.
Zach Johnson later accidentally hit his ball on the par-5 13th tee during a practice swing. The ball hit the tee marker and bounced four feet in front of him. He turned to his playing parters and asked, “what happens now?” He’s taking laying up on par-5’s to a whole new level.
Kiradech Aphibarnrat did a ballerina twirl and fell to the ground after a shot.
Finally, a (soon to be former) security guy tried to do crowd control as Tiger Woods hit a shot from the trees. He ran (a no-no at the Masters), and slipped. He clipped Tiger’s ankle. Had Tiger’s foot been security planted, that may have put Tiger out for the season. The lady in the background called the security guard “safe.”
[Salt Lake City, Utah – April 9, 2019] Leading golf blogger Tony Korologos of HookedOnGolfBlog.com has just released his 2019 Masters Tournament scripting. Korologos is famous for producing some of the most prestigious Masters Tournament scripts in the history of the event. Some scripts from previous years include the original blogger apparel scripting, toothpaste scripting, Sergio Garcia’s baby nappy scripting, cigar scripting, and Dustin Johnson’s sock scripting (commemorating DJ’s fall down the stairs which injured his back and prevented him from competing in the Masters).
“The 2019 Masters scripting is different,” Korologos said. “My Masters viewing now involves a new Traeger smoker, so I’m in meat mode.”
Korologos’ script varies in meat type, culminating with the filet mignon for the Sunday final round. “The filet finish is like Tiger wearing a red shirt on Sunday. But one must not overcook it.”
