A couple of days prior to the Pebble Beach Pro-AM, J.B. Holmes tee’d it up on the course’s famed seventh hole. It was storming up a fool that day, and Holmes shared a clip of the madness.
He took out a six iron and hit his shot. Where the ball land? Nothing but green due to the reaction of Holmes and his buddies.
Even Zach Johnson, one of the best bad weather golfers of all-time probably couldn’t top what Holmes did. Just another cool thing about golf is that, you’re in a boss battle with the course, and mother nature as well.
Holmes, as we know, was the Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson before Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson. He would constantly rank among the top dogs in driving distance, and now, he’s making his presence in the new generation.
What better way to make yourself standout than by riding the storm of Pebble’s seventh hole? You go J.B.

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.
