Paige Spiranac, most beautiful “hole in one”

Published

on

It is always the (never enough) relationship between golf and luck that ends up on the blog these days. Today we are talking about a hole-in-one by Paige Spiranac, an event not unique but rare even if not comparable to Guido Migliozzi’s shot on the Old Course on Sunday and to the bettor enriched with the Ryder Cup 2021.

Not all hole-in-ones are created equal. The one made in the past few hours in America is destined to make people talk. It wasn’t just any professional or amateur who posted on the fly. As mentioned, the shot of the day bears the signature of Paige Spiranac, a 28-year-old golf influencer who has come one step away from professionalism.

From the top of her 3.2 million followers, Paige is Ferragni in the US online golf world. Each public release of her becomes a media event to be shared or denigrated, depending on the faction on duty. But the singularity of her hole-in-one doesn’t end there.

Paige Spiranac, for a just cause
The ball “she decided” to finish its flight in hole 14 (a par 3 of 135 meters) of the Glen Arbor Golf Club in New York in front of an exceptional spectator, namely Gary Player.

For those unfamiliar with him, we suggest a ride on Google: he is a living legend of the sport, an 85-year-old South African who has won everything that could be won. Player and Spiranac were playing a charity contest to raise funds for the fight against pancreatic cancer.

Vivienne, Gary’s wife, died in early 2021. Given the characters present, the great stroke of luck was immortalized by more than a smartphone and was immediately put on the Net. In the video you can see the incredulous reaction of Paige Spiranac and those present, not the ball ending up in the hole.

But, we are sure, for once the conspiracy theorists will stay good. A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty. This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship).

A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the “secret weapon” of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.

“He’s a good guy, he’s been through a lot as a sportsman and he’s the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I’m not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period.

” These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed ‘the Baltimore Shark’, important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. “The mental aspect is something I’ve worked on a lot with him lately.

I’m really lucky to have him around. Besides, he’s a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value.” This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.

Tiger’s style upgrade, Morikawa’s engagement and the ultimate golf……

Published

on

1. Collin Morikawa and Katherine Zhu get engaged
Collin Morikawa may have lost his five-shot lead on Sunday at the Hero World Challenge and pushed back his opportunity to become World No. 1, but it was still a week to remember for the 24-year old. Morikawa got engaged to longtime girlfriend Kat on November 30th and shared the news via Instagram.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Kat, here are some fun facts about her:

a) She’s Canadian! Kat is from Vancouver, but will hopefully root for Team USA in the Presidents Cup. Only time will tell.

b) She’s a REALLY good golfer. Kat played golf at Pepperdine University, where she maintained a scoring average of 76.54. Check out her swing:

c) She and Collin have a REALLY cute dog named Koa. They even have an Instagram account for their pup, who appears to be living quite the life.

The guy’s had it all in 2021: a major championship victory, a Ryder Cup win and … someone to personally curate his playlists for him. And a silver lining for the future Mr. and Mrs.: there’s no question what the highlight of young Collin’s week was. Congrats, you two! And shoutout to Keith Pelley for respecting the proposal embargo.

2. The latest TaylorMade shoot post
Attend a major. Play a few top courses. Tee it up overseas. Make an ace. These golf bucket list items are good, but I have set my heart on something even better (and significantly less likely to happen). I want to attend a TaylorMade shoot, and I’m about to convince you why you should, too.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall here! First off, the TaylorMade staff is stacked — Tiger, Rahm, Rory, Morikawa, DJ, the list goes on. Watching these guys yuck it up in a no-pressure situation is the dream of every golf social manager. And if last year’s TaylorMade Christmas card won’t convince you … well then, I don’t know what to tell you.

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season. Merry Christmas, from #TeamTaylorMade! pic.twitter.com/2ec6Z71EVX

I can’t wait to see what Team TaylorMade came up with for this year’s card.

3. Viktor Hovland at the airport.
There are a handful of things in this life I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand: fax machines, trigonometry and, most pressingly, Viktor Hovland’s social media presence. He’s not on Twitter, but his Instagram is equal parts confusing and hilarious.

Anyway, I stumbled across this tweet last week and didn’t think much of it… until he won the Hero World Challenge on Sunday.

It’s incredible how down to earth Twitterless Victor is. Just saw him at Nassau airport. The girl behind hm asked what he did.

Hovland: ‘I live in Oklahoma and play a bit of golf’.

Come on! You are actually the world No9!!!#HeroWorldChallenge

Viktor Hovland, four-time PGA Tour winner, plays “a bit of golf!” I love it. He’s now the No. 7 player in the world. That’d be like Taylor Swift saying she writes “a bit of music.” Or Leo DeCaprio saying he “does a little bit of acting.”

The fact Viktor went out and won the event a few days after this happened makes it even better.

4. Kisner and JT’s college football bet
I love when pro golfers get into sports rivalries on Twitter. Alabama played Georgia on Saturday, which meant one thing: Justin Thomas and Kevin Kisner would have some type of bet going on. When Georgia lost in 2018, Kisner had to wear an Alabama jersey during the Sony Open. This year’s bet was a little more tame, but still entertaining:

The pros are just like us when it comes to college football! (Well, not like me because I don’t really follow it, but lots of other people do.)

5. Tiger (duh!)
More Eldrick content! After months of silence from him, it’s a treat to see (and hear!) so much of him over the last week. From his press conference to his driving range exploits, Golf Twitter has exploded over his every move. Dissecting a golf swing isn’t my forte, so I’ll stick to what I know best: social media posts.

First, let’s take a look at these photos from Long Drive pro Martin Borgmeier earlier in the week and then Tiger on Sunday.

He’s jacked! The man has come a LONG way in terms of recovery. He went from being unable to walk to being able to swing in a matter of months, but he’s also come a long way in terms of style and I’d like to highlight that here.

Now, I’m no fashionista (particularly not after working from home for the last 20-something months), but I do think it’s safe to say there’s been a lot of growth here. He’s gone from the ultimate baggy dad-fit (nothing wrong with that!) to a trimmer, more tailored fit, which makes him look younger and more stylish. Bravo.

And finally, I’ll leave you with this post. I have no idea what to make of it, but it feels worth sharing. I’d love to know what DJ and Usain discussed at this event. Anyways, I’ll see you all next week.

Tiger Woods One Piece of Advice to his Son ‘Charlie’ That Could Help all…….

Published

on

Ahead of Saturday’s PNC Championship, Tiger Woods’ son, Charlie Woods, received some putting pointers from legendary golfer Gary Player on Friday.

While Tiger and Charlie were getting warmed up on the putting green, Player gave Charlie some words of wisdom and encouragement:

The PNC Championship, which was created in 1995 and originally called the Father/Son challenge, is an annual tournament that features 20 major champions playing with a partner—usually a family member.

While the partners have traditionally been the sons of the major champions, it has expanded over the years to see daughters, grandchildren and even fathers, as Justin Thomas’ dad will be his partner this weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday, all eyes at Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida, will be on Tiger and his 11-year-old son since it will represent Charlie’s first true taste of the spotlight.

While Charlie is developing and enjoying success as a junior golfer in Florida, taking part in the PNC Championship means he will be competing alongside some of the best golfers in the world.

His father is among them, and while he figures to pick up plenty of knowledge from teaming up with Tiger, he could potentially learn just as much from the other golfers who will be in attendance, such as Player.

Player is among the all-time greats with nine major titles to his credit, and other multi-time major champions like Greg Norman, Nick Price and Bubba Watson will be there too.

There won’t necessarily be a ton of pressure on Charlie to perform since the PNC Championship uses a best-ball format, but if he can use some of the advice he has gotten to hit some strong shots and even outperform his dad a time or two, it will undoubtedly capture the attention of the viewing audience.

So Sad: The Power is not there, but i can….says tigerwoods

Published

on

According to Golfweek’s Steve DiMeglio, who’s on the ground at Albany in the Bahamas, Woods hit balls on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week. He also joined the television broadcast on Saturday for 30 minutes and discussed how his practice is going.

“I can hit it. It just doesn’t go as far,” Woods said about hitting driver. “The power is not there, but I can hit drivers. I can hit any club in the bag. I’m not at the point where I can hear it land, OK?”

Next week Woods is expected to announce whether he will play in the PNC Championship alongside his son, Charlie, or not. Woods would be allowed to use a cart.
