A look back at 2021 through quotes—just trust me...
IS GOLF DIGEST THE DJ EAR WORM OF GOLF?
Kicking things off with what might be one of the cooler pieces of content I've seen from Golf Digest—19 quotes to sum up the year in golf.
(Normally GD is good for the standard golf club review that tells me the slightest shift in club head inertia is going to give me another 20 yards of driving distance—as I sit here like an a$$ holding my 2012 RBZ just praying I don't slice.)
But trust me when I say that this was easily one of the more enjoyable long reads in a while. Taking me on a trip down memory lane to remember that it was THIS YEAR when Patrick Reed has his little "misunderstanding" at Torrey or THIS YEAR when Tiger had his accident.
Left me with the same feeling I'd get from the year-end DJ Ear Worm mashup of all the pop songs that hit the charts.
Which is saying a lot when you remember it's Golf Digest we're talking about here. Well done.
What's new with Brooks?
FINALLY OUT OF GAS
Making the rounds this week was this update from Brooks Koepka who maybe thought, much like his performance at majors, he could power his own car through sheer force of will. Forgetting that cars run on actual gasoline and not just the imagined tears of Bryson Dechambeau.
And it's worth asking... do we know where Krooks is these days? Because there's definitely a conspiracy theory in here that says we're actually just watching a misadventure of Krooks taking a joy ride in a Rolls Royce.
Today on Golf Reddit.
A DELIGHT FROM DOWN UNDER
This is it, really. Just another fantastic wildlife on the course pic courtesy of Golf Reddit.
However, it does bring up the question of how pesky do we think Koalas would be on the golf course critter scale from annoying AF squirrels stealing snacks from the cart to don't F with me rattlesnakes protecting my wayward Vice Pro in the cacti?
Food for thought.
This is getting a bit eerie
LIKE FATHER—LIKE SON
The resemblance is absurd.
Maybe more than any athlete I've watched my whole life (and I'm a Chicago kid of the 90's who enjoyed every last second of the MJ-era Bulls), I've never wanted a child to succeed at the sport of their father more than Charlie.
The kid is a legend already and as his dad grows into more of a normal human every day, it just makes this ride that much sweeter.
Good luck this weekend fellas—the world needs this W.
Can we get a life check on Bill?
NELLY'S GONE BAD
STAY F***** CALM!
I don't often give an outright, non-snarky compliment to Bill—but when I do, it's because the man found a way to get Nelly Korda in Bad Birdie. Cheers to you, you sand-baggin son of a b.
