What’s good y’all? I hope you enjoyed my awesome rhyme in the headline! I couldn’t help but grab this picture of Golf Channel broadcasting superstar Holly Sonders at the Humana Challenge as it looks like her caddy is staring at the one place where i think most dudes would stare…well…her booty. She was lining up her putt when this occurred and as we know, Holly was a pretty good golfer and still is solid. Now, I;m pretty sure he’s probably just looking at her slope on the green and helping her prepare for putt, but it just looks funny from the camera angle as it literally almost looks like he’s staring at the golf journalist’s booty butt. I also can’t help but laugh at his facial expression, quite funny considering what the picture looks like. Again, it’s more than likely he was just doing his job but it just looks like he’s like “Oh, DAT BOOTY!”. Holly, you’re very talented and I really respect your work but I thought this was too funny. Think they’ll get a little kick out of this?

No Tiger Woods Video Game? No Problem as HB Studios Announces “The Golf Club” and it Looks Like an Early Sports Game of the Year Candidate
Remember the article I wrote a while back regarding EA Sports parting ways with Tiger Woods while mentioning a new golf game that was supposed to be on the way? Well, virtual golfers can rejoice as the new game is officially a reality now after long weeks of questions, rumors and hype within the golf video game community. HB Studios officially announced their new golf game called “The Golf Club” which will be released this spring so it’s right around the corner. The game is going to be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC and having a golf game on the PC is HUGE as many PC golfers have been begging for a new title for them to hit the links on their laptops and desktops. This is also an excellent move for HB Studios to have a PC version of the game as it will be easily accessible for gamers who don’t have PS4’s and Xbox One’s since they’ve all been selling out like crazy (Or at least the PS4’s have). The game will have some solid features including one feature that will define sports gaming. A golf course creator. You can create an unlimited amount of courses in the game for you and your friends to play.
The best thing about this feature obviously is the fact that you can create any course in the world from Augusta National to Pine Valley, the tools are all there for you and thanks to the PC’s incredible technology, creation gurus and “mod masters” (modification masters) can really make a course like Augusta look exactly like Augusta which is one reason why I’m really excited for the PC release. This feature is the heart and soul of the game so far along with no loading times. That’s right, no waiting for long load times between holes. As soon as you complete a hole, you move on to the next hole right away. There are only “minimal load times” on certain parts of the game according to HB. The graphics and gameplay look absolutely phenomenal and the swing animations are spot on.
Probably the most amazing thing is that the game is still finishing up development and looks great even right now so imagine how it’ll look when the finished product is complete? From what I’ve seen in the video, there’s no type of broadcast presentation (Not yet anyway) but you can hear what I assume is your caddy talking in the background. Probably the best thing about this game is that it will evolve over time meaning that they’re probably won’t be a sequel to the game but continuous updates over time adding new features, courses, (Yes, there are pre-made courses also but they are fiction courses), etc. This is a huge thing for sports gaming because many people have always wondered why developers never keep one game and just continue to update it over time for at least a couple of years and then release a new title.
Well, this looks like it will actually happen for the first time in sports video game history for a major developer thanks to The Golf Club. The developers are even taking ideas from fans in the forums so they can try the best in their ability to implement the community’s ideas into the game and that is just absolutely outstanding. The reason why HB can do this is because they’re their own company. They aren’t developing a game for another company like EA or 2K so they have all the freedom in the world to do whatever they want with this game and it’s really exciting to see that they treat the community like family because that’s what golf and video games do is bring people together and HB is doing an excellent job of showing this. You feel welcomed when you’re on the forums with the other golf gaming fans as HB developers take the time out to answer your questions.
Unfortunately, for PlayStation Move and Xbox Kinect users, the game will not be compatible with these devices. However, they did say that they will eventually try to get them in but right now they’re just getting the base of the game in. It’s good that they’ll get the Move and Kinect in eventually because golf games are arguably the best sports games when it comes to the Move and Kinect and adds a more immerse experience. There will also be online rounds where you can play with TONS of other players and there will also be tours as well but no word on a career mode yet but again, the base of the game is going to be releasing which already looks good so once they implement all of the updates and features over time, this game will no doubt be a monster in sports gaming. No word on the release of a demo just yet but stay tuned and keep it locked here as I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as they announce it. So, overall, this game looks spectacular and in my eyes is an early Sports Game of the Year candidate if it lives up to the hype.
You can visit the official website here and you can check out the video below but be careful not to drop your jaw on the floor! Probably the funniest thing about the video is that the last thing they show is a guy missing a putt. Most sports game trailers show something epic like an insane slam dunk or a game winning touchdown, home run or a massive drive off the tee so I couldn’t help but giggle a little bit at the end!

A Video Tribute to Dr.Martin Luther King From the Back 9 Network and a GP Tribute to One of the Greatest Figures of All-Time
Martin Luther King. The father of the Civil Rights movement. A man who nearly single handily helped change the country during one of the worst times in our American history. Although his real name was Michael King, his father changed his name to Martin Luther in honor if the German reformer of the same name. He was an incredible example of how to lead by example without using violence which sadly so many people had resorted to over the years as their way of solving problems. Dr King led the SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference) where he and his conference members had non violent protests in the south which led to national TV coverage which showed the horrible police response to the movement which to me was still one of the worst things in American history where these innocent people who were standing up for what was right got beaten and how can we forget one of the greatest pictures in our world’s history as shown below? Not for how “great” it is but what the message it sent. This obviously was the legendary photo where the police showered movement members with gallons upon gallons of water as if they were wild animals and not human beings. Remember, in this picture, these our students joining hands on that horrible day.Again, one of the most important and famous images in the world. A bone chilling image to this day.
Here’s another image of that horrific day and this one may have been seen more than others. Again, a message of what these people had to go through and for what? Because some very stupid people want to judge others by the color of their skin.
Of course, we can’t forget one of the greatest moments in American history and a true highlight of Dr.King’s legendary career and legacy. The March on Washington. After days upon days of protests in the south which eventually made it out to Chicago, Dr. King was finally able to reach the one place where many s consider the heart of this country. The nation’s capitol, Washington D.C. where Dr.King delivered one of the most unbelievable speeches to this day. The world-famous “I have a dream” speech. And think about this. He was a very young man when he performed this incredible speech. Only 34 years old. That’s right, 34. Just 5 years out of his 20’s. Dr.King already had a terrific legacy at a young age and the March on Washington helped fulfilled it to its peak in order to bring justice and equality for all. A famous image of that glorious day below. Another one of the greatest images of our history as you see Dr.King, a huge crowd of over 200,000 and the iconic Washington monument in the distance as if it’s a shadow of what our country was at that time and what it became after Dr.King’s powerful movement.
Here’s another great picture of a young King with Rosa Parks after her famous act on a bus in 1955 where she wasn’t allowed to sit in the front of the bus because she was black but sat there anyway leading to her arrest. Some people will crack small jokes about Rosa’s situation and be like”What’s the big deal?”. The big deal is that people were SO idiotic back then that they would arrest a young woman just because she was sitting in front of a bus because of her skin color and that was unacceptable and mind-boggling stupid and it should have NEVER been an issue to begin with. Irene Morgan and Sarah Louise Keys performed similar acts in 1944 and 1955 respectively.
So let this be a day we remember of a time where there was segregation in our great country and that there wasn’t any equality and how a young man with a dream was able to single handily change an entire nation forever and let this be a day that we celebrate one of the greatest figures who ever lived and I think his wonderful dream was fulfilled. Happy Martin Luther King day all. Enjoy the video below that the fine folks at the Back 9 Network put together which throws a bit of history and a sprinkle of golf goodness along with some great pictures and quotes below the video.

You guys all loved the last Anna Rawson picture which was the highest viewed article/photo ever on the GP Golf Report by a large margin. So now all get more Anna as we take a look at one of her most familiar photos as you can see that she’s wearing a see through shirt and apparently there’s nothing under the shirt if you take a good enough look. As we know, although she doesn’t have a win under her belt as a golfing professional, she’s still very talented and has a solid short game around the greens. As we also know, she’s a terrific model and she makes golf look very awesome. Anna, if you’re reading this, I got to say THANK YOU for making golf more awesome and thank YOU guys for making the GP Golf Report what’s its become so far! Shout out to Busted Coverage for the pic!

Over the years, golf has seen some of the most amazing feats in all of sports. We’ve seen tons of hole outs, aces, very long putts, and records being broken that make our jaws drop to the floor and our tongues rolling out like red carpets. When I wrote the story about James Hahn and Joost Luiten both hitting double eagles in the same round, a kind gentleman by the name of Jim sent me an email about one of the greatest golf feats in terms shot and circumstances. He and his wife Fay both hit hole in ones on the same day, at the same course and in the same foursome. Yup, you heard me right. It’s already hard just getting one hole in one in a round even if you had 10 golfers with you during a round. Hole outs are much more common (Even I had one if you believe that!) and although they’re still exciting shots, an ace is one of the hardest and one of the greatest plays in all of sports. The holy grail of golf shots. Every one wants one in their life, heck I’d get excited and giddy getting a hole in one in mini golf! What these guys did is amazing and rare and I really thank him for sending out the email. You can view his message below!
“A friend told me there was a report that a man and wife, while golfing together, both had holes-in one during their round. On August 25th, 2012, while playing together in a foursome, I had a hole-in-one on the 4th hole, a 148 yard par 3 ( this was my 5th Hole in One, in 65 years of playing golf.) A while later, on the par 3, 14th hole, my wife, Fay, had a Hole-in-One, her first in 18+ years of golf. Fay’s ace was witnessed not only by the other members of our foursome, but by our Assistant Pro, Travis Long, who had come out to congratulate me.”
“Our course is Anthem Country Club in Henderson, NV. We were told that odds of this happening were 25 million to one! We querried the USGA, the World Golf Hall of Fame, Guinness, the PGA, but were told no one had ever heard of this before, and had no records of it.”
Anthem Country Club
Big thanks again to Jim for sharing this amazing story!

Master company of the almighty putter Odyssey posted a beautiful picture of a putting green featuring their putters and a flag stick with their logo on Twitter. The crazy thing about it? Oh, nothing much except it was only -45 DEGREES! No big deal, that’s NOTHING! Man, we could go out there with shorts and shades on! In a sport like disc golf, you’ll see people playing in freezing weather during tournaments BUT this is WAY too cold and this is traditional golf. The coldest I remember, being in Chicago (AKA Chilaska) is -15 degrees which actually was very recent. I’m sure the golf balls weren’t the only balls freezing out there for the Odyssey crew.
Putting at -45 degrees (!!!) in North Pole, Alaska. Thanks to Odyssey fan John Lysen for the photo! pic.twitter.com/PQgAbGr4J6

You guys love them, you guys wanted them and well you got more of them. Here’s another picture of one of golf’s talented and beautiful women as today we take a look at recent picture taken of the spectacular Anna Rawson. Anna is known as one of golf’s true beauties and she’s made 14 cuts throughout her career with one top 10. The Australian can not only swing a golf club and she’s not just modeling “just because”. She’s a professional model and a very good one at that. Come on, you didn’t think she was naked did you?! So, on that note, I’m just going to shut up and let you guys stare at this well taken picture and save it into your files or whatever it is that you do. Anna, thanks for being awesome! Hopefully this will make your Monday less gloomy all!
