Golfer makes the Greatest 3-Foot Putt in the History of Golf [Video]

You wouldn’t think a three-foot golf putt would be a very interesting? Think again!

The putt below comes from the ninth hole in Elie, Scotland, and our shooters named is Greg. Besides that, we don’t know too much, but this might be the greatest birdie putt of all time.

Greg decided to go, in his own words, “the scenic route,” and instead of aiming directly for the hole, went up a large bank beside the green and back down straight into the hole.

Luckily his mate was filming it, and what might have become a barely believable folktale told at the 19th hole is instead a moment that lives forever.

Rory McIlroy Named 2014 PGA Tour Player of the Year

British Open and PGA Championship winner Rory McIlroy was voted the 2014 PGA Tour Player of the Year by the Tour’s members—the second such award in three years for the 25-year-old Northern Irishman.

The PGA Tour noted the latest award win for McIlroy on its official site, also announcing Chesson Hadley as Rookie of the Year. The release includes comments from PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem about both players’ success.

“My congratulations to Rory and Chesson for their outstanding accomplishments that earned them season-ending honors from their peers,” he said. “Both players earned their awards with their consistent and steady play throughout the season.”

Billy Horschel, Martin Kaymer, Jimmy Walker and Bubba Watson were the other finalists for the coveted Player of the Year award.

It was a dominant season for McIlroy, who won three tournaments, including the aforementioned pair of majors, and finished inside the top 10 in 12 of 17 events. That includes an eighth-place result at The Masters.

Patrick Reed Shushed the Ryder Cup Crowd Following a Birdie Putt [Video]

Patrick Reed drained a birdie putt on the 7th hole of his Ryder Cup matchup with Henrik Stenson today and then he tired to fire up his team or anger the Scottish crowd, either or, by making a “shush” gesture. Reed apparently had been heckled for his putting on the first tee earlier in the day.

Reed then proceeded to pump his fist and yell “Come on!” on his way to the next tee, which caused Jack Nicklaus to ask on Sky Sports, “What in the world is he doing? He’s going to incite a riot.”

Stenson finished Saturday one up over Reed.
