LOOK: Python seen eating Wallaby on golf course

 

I know I haven’t posted on GP Golf Report in a little while, so how about this “lovely” picture for your return visit? Yes, that’s a freakin’ python eating on a Wallaby (similar to a kangaroo).

 

This yucky photo took place on the 17th hole at the Paradise Palms Resort, located in Australia. This actually shouldn’t be too surprising, as we’ve seen alligators, raccoons, kangaroos and even sharks dominate a golf course.

 

But now, the fact that you see a python eating on something, just makes you cringe even more. Golf is a mental sport, and there’s no doubt that this will leave images in your head if you saw this during your round.

 

Have fun kids, and please, do not aim for the python!

LOOK: The Old White TPC is covered in water

Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson lives on the property of the legendary Greenbrier golf course so he gets to see it a ton. Unfortunately, Greenbrier doesn’t look as beautiful as it normally does to to heavy rain that caused flooding of the course.

The Greenbrier Classic is scheduled for July 7th through the 10th. However, it looks like it could really take some time to clear the course up.

The Greenbrier is not only home to the famed Old White TPC, but is also home to the oldest course in America, Oakhurst Links. Let’s hope that things get cleared and hope everyone is safe and away from danger.

Here’s another eerie, yet beautiful photo of the scene, taken by Watson.

Muhammad Ali’s first golf shot was amazing

 

A couple of days ago, the sports and cultural world lost one of it’s biggest icons as boxing legend Muhammad Ali passed away at the age of 74. Ali was one of sports’ first true megastars and was known for his clever and quick fighting style.

His world famous move, the “Rope-a-Dope” is a major reason why he dominated so many fights. The move, is to basically dodge punches and move around in order to tire his opponent out, making a perfect timing to go in for the kill and worked immensely.

Apparently, Ali had a good golf swing too. On his very first attempt to ever swing a golf club, Ali hit an 8-iron 140 yards and was perfectly straight.

Again, this was his very first golf swing. Then, not only that, his second shot was also a good one.

After his second shot, he made a quote that only Muhammad Ali could:

 “Muhammad Ali is the world’s greatest golfer! Nobody can beat Muhammad Ali! Not Arnold Palmer, not Jack Nicklaus, not nobody. I’m gonna make ’em look bad, predict the score, how bad I’m gonna beat ’em, everything — just like I do in boxing!”

Mr. Ali, you really were the greatest. R.I.P

Golfer sent Texas to NCAA Championship one-handed

Behold kids, the definition of toughness and skill. Beau Hossler, a player on the Texas golf team, was battling some shoulder problems but wanted to keep playing.

He did, and managed to get through the round while dealing with the pain. After all that, he nailed this beautiful putt.

Unfortunately for Hossler and the Longhorns, they lost to the Oregon Ducks for the title. Nonetheless, a gritty effort.

PHOTO: You won’t believe how cool Jerry Kelly’s wedges are

💵💵💵

A photo posted by Jonathan Wall (@jonathanrwall) on

During the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town, Jerry Kelly may have took home the award for coolest wedges. He had irons which featured $100 bills painted on the club heads.

Kelly actually had the same wedge at last year’s Players Championship. But the “Benji” once again makes a triumphant appearance.

Other players have done some fun and creative designs with their clubs, but the Kelly wedge is ballin’. Nothing says you’re an OG more so than $100 painted on your wedges.

Well played Mr. Kelly. Well played.

Nascar driver has the greatest golf backyard ever

Kevin Harvick is a star on the racetrack for Nascar but apparently is a star when it comes to backyards too, as this replica of Augusta National’s 12 hole is stunning.

Harvick, who played Augusta a few years back, said that “there’s nothing like this place” and it’s really hard to disagree with him there.

We already saw when someone had a replica of St. Andrews’ legendary “Road Hole” in their backyard, so the Augusta 12th replica is just the icing on the cake for amazing golf yards. And the trees neatly tucked behind the green remind of the towering trees at the 12th.

Picture perfect as they say.

PHOTOS: Jordan Spieth’s new $7.1 million mansion is crazy

 

Jordan Spieth has obviously made a ton of money this year after a historical PGA Tour season where he won five tournaments including the Masters and U.S. Open.

 

He capped that off by winning the first tournament of the season at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Now, all of the winning has paid off as he now owns one of coolest homes in sports.

 

Spieth purchased the home off of six time PGA Tour champion and fan favorite Hunter Mahan and offers features that will make you jealous. One of those features is a 12-car garage with half a basketball court bellow it.

 

The house is 16,665 and includes a guest house, infinity pool and a man cave with a ping pong table and golf simulator.  There’s also a full kitchen with a fire pit and the house includes five bedrooms and six bathrooms.

 

Here are other pictures of the rest of the house if you can handle it.

 

Yup, that’s what you call living the life. Jordan “Get Money” Spieth in the building.

PHOTOS: Michelle Wie gets lessons from Tiger Woods

I guess the “Swoosh Squad” sticks together, as Nike representative Michelle Wie received some chipping lessons from Tiger Woods.

 

If anything, this shows that Woods is figuring out new ways to stay around golf while he’s recovering. Coaching the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open champion was definitely in the plans as Wie happily showed off a couple of pictures of the session.

Casual chipping lesson from the @tigerwoods this morning 🙊🙊🙊

Who knows what Woods’ future looks like but hey, if Wie starts winning again, Maybe Woods has a future in coaching. Look out Butch Harmon, David Leadbetter and Dave Pelz.

PHOTO: J.B. Holmes receives hilarious Christmas gift

J.B. Holmes had quite a comeback season in 2015 and was the king of power in golf before Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson took over.

With him coming back to form, winning once and contending in other tournaments, you’d think Holmes would receive some cool Christmas gifts for what he achieved. Well, he got a great gift (Or well, at least for us who like a good laugh) as his sister presented him with a shirt that says “World’s Okayest Golfer”.

Holmes was one of the popular players on Tour a few years back, wowing golf fans everywhere with his long drives. Now, a rejuvenate Holmes looks to fit right in with the new generation of golf and he did so somewhat quietly in 2015 and looks to continue his success in 2016.

Maybe he should wear the shirt to fool others into thinking that he’s just an “okay” golfer. Then show them all up in the end.

The golf hustle.

PHOTO: Rory McIlroy takes silly photo of himself during rehab

Human version of the dreaded K-9 cone…. Only for sleeping though! Laser eye surgery went well yesterday 👀👍

A photo posted by Rory McIlroy (@rorymcilroy) on

Rory McIlroy underwent some laser eye surgery and shared on Instagram a picture with a funny caption on it. In some ways, he looks like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar only McIlroy’s lens’ are larger. He’s expected to return to action at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship next month. McIlroy isn’t the only one who had shared a post operation photo. Henrik Stenson also shared a photo with somewhat of a derpy (If you don’t know what that means, Google or Bing it) face that only Stenson can make.

I guess we’ll see if the hottest new trend will be “post surgical selfies” on Twitter. As long as it’s not your butt then we’re straight.
