LOOK: Michelle Wie has some dope new shoes for Solheim Cup

The Solheim Cup is one of the best events in golf, and one of the game’s most expressive players is ready. Michelle Wie will be rocking some cool, crystallized style shoes for the team event.

These shiny kicks from Nike are one of the coolest you’ll see, and helps continue a tradition that makes the Solheim and Ryder Cups great; the fashion. Lexi Thompson will also be wearing the flame throwing shoes on the course as well.



Two major champs, rocking champion worthy shoes? Makes sense to me.

No doubt that they’ll be turning some heads at Des Moines Golf & Country Club. Golf has gotten more and more attention for its fashion choices. And the beautiful thing is that, you have more freedom in your apparel choices in golf (players should be allowed to wear shorts though).

We saw Justin Thomas wear a cardigan at The Open, as well as Jason Day and Keegan Bradley rocking Air Jordans on the course.

Golf is a sport where you can let your swagger game fly. Wie and Thompson just reminded us all that once again.

Lexi Thompson pokes fun at LPGA Tour’s dress code with savage photo

Got my new #LPGA dress code compliant ⛳️ outfit ready to go! 😂#throwbackthursday #kidding #funny #joke

A post shared by Lexi Thompson (@lexi) on

 

If you haven’t heard about the LPGA Tour’s random new dress code rules, it’s basically telling its players to replace skirts with pants and tank tops with more skin covering shirts. Major champion, Lexi Thomspon had a little fun with this new policy, by sharing a picture from last year, of her wearing old fashioned golf attire.

 

In the photo, she is completely covered, so this throws a little shade at the LPGA Tour. Keep in mind, it’s just a little joke, as Thompson is widely respected as a class act.



 

The picture taken was in celebration of golf’s return to the Olympics. The idea was to dress players in golf clothes from back in 1904, since that was previously the last time golf was seen in the games.

 

What’s head scratching about the dress code is that there was never a player who showed too much skin. What some of the ladies wear looks comfortable and probably helps them play their best golf.

 

What’s funny is that, in a time where PGA Tour pros are praying to be able to wear shorts, the LPGA Tour is going in a slightly opposite direction. PGA Tour players want what LPGA Tour pros had; a little more comfort in on-course dress.

 

I absolutely love the LPGA and what they do for golf, as well as the excitement of each tournament. However, I kindly disagree with this code, as do many others.

 

But, it shouldn’t stop us from enjoying one of the best professional tours in all of golf. Right now though, I must give a golf clap to Lexi for coming up with this innocent and savage Instagram post.

This side by side photo comparison of The Greenbrier is insane

As the Greenbrier Classic is making an amazing return to the world of golf after an awful flood occurred last year, the comparison between last year and this year is insane. The PGA Tour shared the jaw dropping side by side photos of the flooded Old White TPC compared to this year’s clean and beautiful venue.

The Greenbrier truly is one of the most beautiful golfing locations in the United States. To see it in such a mess was sad to see, but it’s great to see the legendary Greenbrier Classic has made a triumphant return.

 

As we look back at it, we can say that the course had the largest water hazard in the world for a brief time. The last time the Greenbrier Classic was played, it was back in 2015 when Danny Lee won it.



Certainly for any photojournalist, it has to be a chilling experience to take a picture of the flooded course, and then take another of it after it’s been cleaned up. The Greenbrier is not only home to the Old White TPC, but is home to the oldest course in the United States, Oakhurst Links, a beautiful nine hole track.

 

It’s just great to have the course back and the tournament back. However, don’t you dare try to find a flooded ditch so you can hit flop shots out of.

 

My best advice would be to hit flop shots IN the flooded ditch. Hey, it could make for fun target practice.

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.
