TACKLED BY SANTA
Besides finding another use for some of our holiday 2020 shots, this story comes courtesy of u/nickolasjt. The title of his post was a real grabber...
Assaulted on the Course and How I Almost Committed a Homicide (My Story)
Apparently, it all went south when two of the most rough and tumble high school sports teams squared off—golf and cross and country. The runners were mean muggin' and the golfers were flexin'.
Apparently, Nickolas ripped one off the tee directly into the group of runners, knocking one of them out cold. And apparently, after they determined the kid was ok and he walked off, they thought the beef was over.
But apparently, it was not. Because on the 9th tee, one of the runners put on a Santa suit, waited patiently in the bathroom by the tee box, and after Nickolas teed off, the Santa kid popped out of the bathroom, tackled him and ran off.
And, apparently, in case you haven't picked up on it already, I re-discovered this old gem of a video and have re-watched it about 200 times in the last week.

WHAT'S YOUR JJ WATT STORY?
Seems that, now Arizona Cardinal, JJ Watt has been playing some g recently. And it also seems that he is having some trouble keeping track of his Titleists.
I love seeing these celeb golf ball sightings. It's like a giant easter egg hunt and a gentle reminder that golf is hard as $&^#—whether you just signed a 2 year $31 million deal or not.

WORLD'S WORST GOLFERS
We can file this one under old series that DESPERATELY need to be revived. It's the old announcer voice, the soundtrack, the video quality, the graphics—it plays out like an Adult Swim feature but it is very real.
My man Kelly Ireland had a fan club in attendance wearing shirts that said "I Beat Kelly Ireland."
Maybe just me, but I'd watch the hell out of this.
