Video: Bear causes trouble on driving range

Woah! Wait what? In golf, there will be a time where you see Mother Nature’s beautiful creatures roam around on the course. In this case, bear was seen causing trouble at a driving range. He’s seen trying climb over the fence and is failing miserably. Two gentleman in a cart look on like “What is that bear doing?”. The other dude’s like “I don’t know but, it looks like he’s doing it better than how we swing the golf clubs!”. Here’s the video of this wild bear.

Man, he must really dislike that driving range. Probably trying to escape from errant tee shots!

Video: Tiger Woods Helps Mark Rolfing With ALS Challenge

NBC Sports’ Mark Rolfing, who has been a big part of NBC’s golf coverage during its U.S. Open days, accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Tiger Woods did the honors of pouring the bucket on the golf journalism legend.

Ray Halbritter, CEO of Oneida Nation Enterprises also got splashed, but by Golf Channel broadcaster and former PGA Tour pro Notah Begay III. Check out the video below!

As I might of mentioned before, I met Mark Rolfing and will say he’s a totally cool dude. Very friendly with a great sense of humor. I also think he does a great job reporting during NBC golf broadcasts and I’ve said that before meeting him so I’m not being biased *wink*.

Again, it’s awesome that all of these guys are taking part in the ALS Challenge. From the Tom Watson challenge, to the entire U.S. Ryder Cup team challenge, to Tiger and Rory and now Tiger, Mark, Ray and Noatah. Just wonderful stuff!

Photo: This is what Amanda Dufner’s butt looks like up close

This pretty much sums up everything about the life of Jason Dufner’s wife Amanda. In this Instagram picture, she is seen lounging in the pool. However it’s not exactly her, where the camera is.

It’s on her booty. The one thing that brought her out to the world (Thanks to Jason Dufner). Her butt is featured right there on her Instagram. You already knew the dudes were howling!

Here ya go.

I’ll just leave this here too:

Picture: Michelle Wie does the famous Jordan dunk

Michelle’s at it again! This time, she’s trading in her golf shoes for Nike basketball shoes. In one of her new Instagram pics, Michelle is seen doing a solid replica of Michael Jordan’s “Jumpman” dunk which became the logo of the world famous Jordan brand.

There’s absolutely no surprise that this picture was taken because as we know, MJ is one of the biggest golf enthusiasts in the world so why not have a major champ attempt to perform your dunk?

Plus, Michelle is pretty freakin’ tall too (6’1″)! Allen Iverson was dunking at 6’0″ so I don’t see why Michelle couldn’t throw it down. Here’s the pic below.

She practically nailed it! As a big Bulls fan, I can appreciate this and I know fellow Bulls fans will agree! All she needs to do is stick the tongue out!

Video: Man uses machete when golfers hit shots on his lawn

Wow! Now this is what you call “shanking it” by the golf course. A man who lives by a golf course gets quite angry when golfers hit their shots on or near his property.

He also gets mad when golfers drive their golf carts around his lawn. So, what does the grumpy course home owner do? He pulls out a full size machete.

Perfect! That’ll solve alll your problems Mr. “Get off my lawn”! The video was shared on Facebook and then on YouTube. In the video below, the man is seen with the machete in hand.

Dude, if you don’t want golfers going near your lawn then don’t buy a house by a golf course….with a fenceless yard. Maybe he bought the house on purpose so he could pull the machete out and make it look like he’s a badass.

If anything, I call it stupidity. Don’t. Get. A house. By. The. Golf course! Am I missing something here? You decide. Leave your thoughts and comments below! You can also follow me on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio!

Tiger Woods Ends Relationship With Coach Sean Foley, Will go Coachless

Well, this almost came out of the clear blue sky. According to his official website, Tiger Woods has ended a four year relationship with his swing coach Sean Foley. This was his third coach after Butch Harmon and Hank Haney.

It’s interesting because although he wasn’t playing top of the line golf like he used to, he still won Player of the Year honors last year. That’s why it’s surprising because maybe Tiger thought things were going to click eventually.

Unfortuantely, Tiger has dealt with injuries all year. Tiger will go without a coach for now. Here’s his statement from his website:

“I’d like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship,” Woods said. “Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today, and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him. With my next tournament not until my World Challenge event at Isleworth in Orlando, this is the right time to end our professional relationship.”
“My time spent with Tiger is one of the highlights of my career so far, and I am appreciative of the many experiences we shared together,” Foley said. “It was a lifelong ambition of mine to teach the best player of all time in our sport. I am both grateful for the things we had the opportunity to learn from one another, as well as the enduring friendship we have built. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him.”
“Presently, I do not have a coach, and there is no timetable for hiring one,” added Woods.

Very curious to see how Tiger does without a coach. This is a first for his career. Tiger has always had a coach. Most golfers do. It’s possible he may have another coach before he even gets back out there however. You just never know!

Video: Phil Mickelson Hits One of the Coolest, Strangest Shots Ever

During the second round of the Barclays, Phil Mickelson hit a wild tee shot that ended up in the hospitality area of the course. Wondering if the ball might have landed behind the green, Phil was looking around and had officials help. Eventually, the ball was found on the patio of the hospitality area where a ton of fans were gathered.

Fortunately, nobody was hit but Phil had to make an interesting decision. Either to hit the ball off of the patio or not. Fans were urging him to do it and finally he decided to do it. The crowd went nuts. Here’s the video below courtesy of PGATour.com:

Leave it to “Phil the Thrill”!

Picture: Man creates Tiger Woods statue made of golf balls

Kevin Pingel, a man from Iowa who lives on a golf course, has been playing golf since he was a child. Since he lives on a course, he would collect errant shots from other golfers if the balls landed on his property. He decided to use the balls to make a statue of what appears to be a golfer in the middle of his backswing. His friends urged him to do so last November and the result would be this:

golf-ball-statue-600x366

According to Kevin, it’s suppose to be a statue of Tiger Woods. Although it doesn’t look like Tiger, that is an unbelievable effort and looks quite cool. Here’s a comparison with Kevin’s statue and Tiger.

Well done Kevin, keep up the golf ball collecting sir! I should hit some on your property on purpose just so you can collect them and make mini statues for all of my lovely readers!

Video: U.S. Ryder Cup team accepts ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

This is just awesome. U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson accepted the ALS Ice Bucket challenge to help raise money for ALS research and dedicated it to….the entire U.S. Ryder Cup team!

Without hesitation, the squad lined up, Rickie Fowler led the crew with a small speech and then the buckets fell. This was just awesome, absolutely awesome.

A couple of players were missing but the majority was there. Jim Furyk seemed like he was totally prepared and Bubba Watson wasn’t wearing a shirt. Here’s the video below.

The best part about all of this is that all of these challenges have raised a TON of money for ALS and that’s fantastic. Have to love it when the world comes together to do things for great causes like this. We need something for every disease!

Video: Tiger Woods, Rory Mcilroy Appear on Tonight Show

On the ultimate appearance of golf superstars on a TV show, Tiger Woods AND Rory Mcilroy appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon who is a golf nut himself (He played on his high school team).

No, they weren’t just there to chit chat either, they actually played a game. The game was called “Facebreaker” where a player hits golf balls at screens with different faces on them (Inlcuding Fallon’s face). This is quite similar to what the Big Break TV show does, when they break glass with their shots. Here’s the video courtesy of Yahoo Sports.

I’m sure Mr.Fallon loved when Rory hit him in the face! Snooping around Bookface (AKA Facebook), you see a lot of different reactions from Tiger lovers, Tiger haters, Rory lovers and Rory haters. Some in paragraphs, some in two to three words. Interesting how this is now.

However, this was a very rare opportunity to get two of the world’s most popular players on a hugely popular show. Great for golf! I’d say Inbee Park is definitely better than both of them right now though.
