Graeme McDowell Makes Impressive Eagle from 213 Yards at RBC Canadian Open [Video]

Graeme McDowell is bulling his way up the leaderboard on the second day of the RBC Canadian Open.

The Northern Irish pro shot five under during his second round at Royal Montreal Golf Club, but his finest moment of the tournament came on Day 1 when he dropped in an eagle from somewhere near Saskatchewan.

McDowell clubbed the ball in from 213 yards out on the difficult 11th hole. He landed it in pillow-soft fashion on the green, and the rest was all wild Canadian cheers.

Apparently, Rory McIlory & Co. Did Jager Shots Out of the Claret Jug


Rory McIlory cruised to a comfortable win at the Open Championship over the weekend. As past winners of the prestigious tournament, celebrations included what appear to be Jagermeister shots out of the Claret Jug. Hopefully the McIlroy clan preceded the Jager by shotgunning PBR tallboys.

Sports trophy’s that one can consume food or drink from are just way better.

Rory McIlroy Won The 2014 British Open Championship

Rory McIlroy shot a moderately disappointing final round 71, but it was still enough to win the 2014 British Open Championship by two strokes over Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler. McIlroy will earn seven-figures for his feat. His father, who placed a 500-1 bet on him to win the British Open before age 25, will earn six.

The feeling of relief and victory….

McIlroy now owns three of the four major championships. He won the U.S. Open in 2011 and the PGA Championship in 2012. Sergio Garcia remains winless at majors. This was his fourth runner-up performance. Tiger Woods finished 69th, 23 shots behind the leader and fourth from bottom among players who made the cut.

Up next, McIlroy can set his sights on a career grand slam when he returns to Augusta for The Masters in 2015.

Rory McIlroy’s Dad Bet on Rory to Win The Open by Age 25 at 500-1 Odds

You talk about a father believing in his son….

Rory McIlroy has a 6-shot lead at The Open Championship going into the final round on Sunday. If he can hold on, he’ll have won three of the four Grand Slam titles by 25. The win will be worth $1.2 million for McIlroy. On top of that, it will be worth more than $300,000 for his father.

In 2004, when Rory was just 15, his father bet that he would win the British Open by 25. A bookie took four wagers from of £100 from Gerry McIlroy and three friends at 500/1 odds. If Rory holds on and the bet pays off tomorrow, Gerry and friends are looking at approximately $341,730 – or $85432.50 apiece – depending on whether or not Mr. McIlroy bought their action. This story first emerged when Rory won the US Open in 2011 when the bet was worth $306,351.

Tiger Woods Thought About Snapping a Club Like Henrik Stenson, Barely Makes Final Cut With Birdie on 18th [Video]

Tiger Woods second day at the British Open did not go as well as the first. After hitting his drive into the rough on the par 5 16th, Woods wasn’t too pleased with his second shot out after it also landed in the rough. Tiger started the day at -3, thought about snapping his iron over his knee like Henrik Stenson did during the first round but fought the urge. He walked away with a par and was even heading into the par 4 17th where he made a triple bogey and dropped to +3, one shot behind the projected cut.

Safe to say Tiger isn’t too happy with his round.

However, Tiger  would birdy the 18th hole to move to +2. Looks like he’ll be around for the weekend, which is good for golf fans and TV networks.

Dallas Stars’ Tyler Seguin Allowed Someone to Hit a Tee Shot Off on His Crotch [Video]

My love for golf is no secret, but I wouldn’t allow even Tiger Woods to hit a ball out of any orifice on my body. Well, maybe for a $10 million, no $20 million. Hey I’m an American, I can be bought.

Anyways, it seems Dallas Star center Tyler Seguin, doesn’t harbor my same fears of having his testicle punctured by a golf tee. He let an unknown golf pro tee off from his crotch yesterday at The Fourth Period Golf Classic charity golf tournament.

As I always say, hockey players are the toughest sports athletes in the world, so why not let a random dude hit a ball of your nuts.
