My First Golden Tee Hole-in-One

I’m still an amateur at best at the game of Golden Tee, but I’m trying my best to get better. I was finally able to stroke a hole-in-one and it came on hole three at Monument Valley. I finally was able to break par recently as well so it’s only a matter of time until I can actually contend with some of my friends. It has taken me many months to get to this point so holla if you hear me!

Anthony Kim Needs a Drink

Anthony Kim has been called “the current John Daly” by Australian golfer Robert Allenby after Kim supposively pulled an all night bender the night/morning before the final day of the Presidents Cup this past weekend. Allenby told Golf Week some of his friends saw Anthony walking “sideways” into the hotel around 4 AM Sunday morning. The catch is this was only five hours before Kim teed off against Allenby and Kim whooped Allenby by winning 5 and 3. There is also a report surfacing that Fred Couples asked Anthony to leave a team function earlier in the week because he was all crunked up. Kim is denying that either of these stories is true, but it sure sounds like Kim likes to throw down. I think Allenby is the one who looks like a schmuck considering he got worked by someone who was completely trashed just hours before.

Tiger Woods Stinks

Tiger Woods won the Buick Open this past weekend in impressive fashion, but that apparently isn’t the biggest buzz from the weekend of golf on the PGA tour. The bigger news revolves around whether Tiger Woods dropped straight a$$ on live TV or a crazed fan let loosed after his third burrito on the back nine of the Buick Open. Check out this video and tell me who you think dealt the blow. Tiger shakes his leg right before the Bronx cheer is blown, but I still think it is someone from the crowd. Thoughts?

So Long… Fairwell….

You better have some longshots in your Majors pools cuz Tiger Woods has missed the cut in a major for only the second time in his professional career.

Woods made two double bogeys on the way to a 4-over 74 today so he won’t be playing this weekend at the British Open after missing the cut by one stroke.

Woods tried to rally, making birdies on two of the last three holes, but a chip from the back of the green at No. 18 came up short and he settled for par.

I am sure many of you have Tom Watson, Kenichi Kuboya, Brandon Grace and Anthony Wall on your teams so all should be well with your pool selections.

848-Mile Golf Course

A few months back we discussed the most amazing golf hole on the planet with a tee box 1,400 feet up. We now would like to introduce you to the most impressive golf course ever created The Nullarbor Links. The world’s longest golf course extends over 848 miles of desert highway in 18 towns and service stations and is located in two different time zones. Golfers will stop in one area to play a hole and then sometimes drive over 60 miles before reaching the next hole. The par-71 course will take up to four days to complete with each player awarded a certificate once they complete the monster track. The other cool part of this golf outing, as if it needed more, is each of the 18 areas offers a local attraction such as ancient fossil beds, the Big Kangaroo statue, whale-watching and more. Who is ready to take a trip down under?

Good Luck Natalie

The 2009 U.S. Women’s open kicks off tomorrow in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania at Saucon Valley Country Club on The Old Course. SportsUnderground would like to wish our numero uno Sports Babe Natalie Gulbis the best of luck in this LPGA Major. Last year you won the Evian Masters so this year let’s bring home the U.S Open. I know you only have two top ten finishes on the year and no victories this year, but anything can happen. Stretch it out girl!

Briny Baird Cares

P.F Changs had a very interesting promotion for the San Diego Navy/Marine Corps Relief Society yesterday across from Petco Park where the San Diego Padres play baseball. Briny had 10 shots to hit the center of the bullseye in Petco Park from the top of a building across the street and he would win everyone in America a free lettuce wrap. The lettuce wrap is cool, but more importantly the promotion generated $25,000 for the charity so all in all it was a job well done for Briny Baird.

Daly News

Last week we talked about John Daly’s new look and the fact that Daly has definitely slimmed down since his ban from the PGA tour last November after being found drunk outside of a Hooters in North Carolina. Well, things continue to look up for JD because he had his best finish in nearly four years this past weekend with a tie for second place in the Italian Open. Daly has been playing recently on the European Tour, but we will see soon if he can make a successful return to the US Tour in June when his European run of five events ends. The second place finish should boost Daly’s current ranking of 794th in the world.

Natalie Gulbis In The Hunt

Natlie Gulbis is tied currently for fifth at -10 after the third round wrapped up today at the Michelob Ultra Open at Kingsmill. Lindsey Wright and Cristie Kerr are tied at the top of the leaderboard with scores of -15. Gulbis has hit 35 fairways so far and 38 greens in regulation and has shot under par each round. She has her work cut out for her tomorrow, but if Natalie can shoot sub-65 Gulbis could win her second ever LPGA career title.

Welcome Back John!!

John Daly made his return to golf last weekend and was donning a new look. He not only lost a few LBs, but he is now wearing some pretty loud clothing.

Not that John Daly needs any help attracting attention on the course, but he was certainly making his presence known last week in Spain. You might even say he was giving Ian Poulter a run for his money when it comes to fashion-forward ensembles.

Daly wore several styles from LoudMouth Golf’s line of over-the-top pants while he played at the Open de Espana. Wednesday he sported an orange-pink pair, called “Raspberry SureBet-A,” (why, yes, they were) which showed off his newly-slimmed down figure. Thursday he opted for a more subdued black and tan style.

We can only hope that this week he’s planning to wear the “Disco Balls” or better yet the “Aloha Girls” style.

Want to tell Daly what you think of his pants? He’s been twittering about them. (And if you want them for yourself, you can purchase them through Daly’s site and part of the money will go to his charity.)
