When we see golfers hit shots from inside a baseball stadium, it’s so cool because it’s like hitting a home run with a golf club. Rory McIlroy joined the list of numerous golfers who hit golf balls out of a ballpark.
He went to Yankee Stadium to make it happen. As expected, with a 6-iron, McIlroy blasted his shot to center field.
Each year, Petco Park becomes a par-3 golf course, and golf and baseball love affair continues. Rory with his iron shot at Yankee Stadium shows the similarities between the two sports in that you’re hitting small balls with sticks.
And who doesn’t like hitting things with sticks? I’m sure at some point, we’d all love to hit some golf shots out of a ballpark whether MLB or college.
As a White Sox fan, I’d love to hit some shots out of Guaranteed Rate Field. However, a college ballpark would be best because you may not need permission, but who knows, depends on the school I suppose. Happy basegolfing!
What club would you use if you hit out of a ballpark? Let me know on Twitter @ChiGolfRaidio!

Hackers are the worst and are digital menaces to society. Unfortunately, Tiger Woods and ex-girlfriend, Ski star Lindsey Vonn have got attacked by the hack monster after some nude photos were leaked between the two.
Woods and Vonn are looking to take legal action against a website that posted the photos, according to Golf Digest. If the site doesn’t remove the pictures, Woods’ lawyer is threatening to sue.
First, Woods was arrested for a DUI, and now, his leaked photos are out there. Not to mention, his struggles on the course pile on top of everything else.
Let this show that, hackers flat out suck. They get pleasure out of making others’ lives miserable. Keep that info protected on your devices, everyone.

He literally does a backflip over his golf ball while it’s in mid-air, and then he lands and hits it beautifully. This after he tosses the ball, where the ball bounces off a pad, and then he flips over it.
After that, it’s a picture perfect shot. How these guys do these trick shots is amazing, and we just witnessed another dandy right there.
As I mentioned before, this is how creative you can get with golf. In most sports, you can only do so many trick shots but in golf, the possibilities are endless.
You have multiple clubs and locations where you can make any trick shot happen. You just have to use your imagination, and Alec definitely did that to join a long list of great trick shot artists.

Artem Nesterov is the biggest golf star in Russia. However, he has been arrested for murdering his mother, Lyudmilla, in a gruesome manner by decapitating her with a knife.
— “Riggs” (@RiggsBarstool) August 17, 2017
Russia has not been noted for its golf, especially with with the sport being introduced, just in the early 1990’s. The country has no major victories. Nesterov was the country’s first true golf star, and just a popular athlete in the country.
After an argument with his wife over his time spent at work, Nesterov’s mother wanted to try and comfort him and cool him out. However, things made the turn for the absolute worst, when he decided to murder his own mother in anger.
The 66-year-old’s body was found in a house in Yerino Village. He then confessed to the brutal murder to police, and just like that, Russia’s biggest golf star, has become one of its biggest monsters.
Nesterov was the first golfer ever to be selected as a “master of sport” in Russia. In his most recent years, he was a coach for the game. Now, he has nobody to coach but himself for what he did.

We’ve seen a lot of unique putting grips on TOUR.
But a one handed finish? pic.twitter.com/XfdL7IWvwW

In golf, we experiment with so many things that could help us be better players. Ollie Schniedrjans has a unique way of drilling birdie putts and it’s pretty cool, as he put it on display at the Wyndham championship
He uses both hands for his backswing like normal, but when he brings the putter forward, he uses one hand. In short, Schniederjans has a one-handed putting stroke.
It isn’t something that’s mind blowing, especially considering that you’ll see some pros practice their putting with one hand. Heck, I’ve practiced with one hand, and I’m just some scrub.
However, it’s pretty cool when someone does it in competition. Not to mention, he does it in a way that works which is nice.
So, not only is Schneiderjans making playing golf without a hat cool again, he’s also bringing some flare to the putting game. I think we can say drive for show and putt for show now. Well played Ollie.

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.

Trick shots have become quite a craze in the world of golf, and they keep getting wilder and wilder. This one by Joshua Kelley, a professional trick shot artist, is one of the best you’ll ever see.
He hits the ball where it floats over his head in the opposite direction. From there, the ball lands on what appears to a mini golf green, and finally, it rolls into the cup.
You simply can’t make this stuff up. What some of these dudes and chicks are doing with golf clubs is insanity, and they keep getting better at it.
Yes, you can do trick shots in every sport. However, the versatility in golf can let your trick shot creativity soar.
You have numerous clubs you can work with, and many locations where you can make things happen. It just continues to show you how beautiful the sport is when you can do cool stuff like this. Well played.

At the PGA Championship, Rod Pampling may have hit the worst tee shot in major history. However, he did it on purpose simply to beat the horn as it rained at Quail Hollow to delay the tournament.
Knowing he wasn’t going to hang around for the weekend, Pampling hilariously rushed his tee shot, as he knew it would be his last taste of major championship golf until next year. Considering how fast he went, I’m impressed he was able to get the ball airborne.
He may not have made the cut, but Pampling gave us the funniest moment of the tournament. When it comes to silly, the majors always deliver.

Geez, who said golf isn’t dangerous? Well, it’s not.
But there are moments where a golf ball flying towards your head can be one of the scariest moments of your life. Brooks Koepka is one of the most powerful players in golf, and it showed, as he bloodied a marshal with an errant tee shot at the PGA Championship.
To everyone’s relief, the man was OK and was in good spirits overall. Koepka, being the good dude that he is, signed a glove for the man.
He even exchanged contact information with as well. Koepka wanted to check up on him later after the round was over.
So, a dangerous moment in golf ended happily. Let’s hope the only dangerous thing that occurs this weekend is golf balls falling into the watery grave of Quail Hollow’s “Green Mile”. Well, obviously, that would suck for the players, but it could be worse, I mean, I could be out there teeing it up.
If that were the case, I’d be the first person ever to dye the Green Mile’s water white with golf balls. It’s an award I wouldn’t take lightly you know.

Quail Hollow is one of the most dangerous courses in golf and will make for an exciting PGA Championship host. However, it’s not as vicious on the driving range, as two-time PGA Championship winner Rory McIlroy hit some ridiculous drives on it.
In the Golf Channel video, you see McIlroy clearing the entire range….with a 3-wood. The combination of McIlroy’s strength and the technology of his Taylormade 3-wood make for a deadly team of brute force.
However, the Quail Hollow range is 10 yards downhill, which will give any ball extra elevation. Regardless, driving over the entire range is absolute insanity and the work of a mad man with a golf club.
Rory has had a ton of success at Quail Hollow. Guess you can add domination of its driving range to his list.
