WATCH: J.B. Holmes hits amazing shot in storm at Pebble Beach

 

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.

WATCH: Jordan Spieth’s caddie shanks badly at Pebble Beach

On the iconic par-3 7th hole at Pebble Beach, Jordan Spieth’s caddie shanked a shot that makes all of us say “Hey, I was there!”.

During Pebble Beach Pro-Am weekend, Michael Greller, Spieth’s caddie, looked to simply get it on the green the 7th at Pebble but found out that golf is a harder game than his golfer makes it look. Greller’s slice just shows that, just because a guy caddie’s for the best golfer in the world, doesn’t mean he’s not like one of us.

For some reason, since he’s the looper for Spieth, I just have a feeling that Greller is a great putter.

Brandt Snedeker Could be a Monster on Tour This year

_[500-500]_Snedeker_1Brandt Snedeker, Mr. Bridgestone. The putting machine. The Man!

Brandt Snedeker has had an amazing season so far on the PGA Tour and I’m not talking about wins.

He’s been in the top 5 in almost every tournement this year and that’s terrific not to mention he did just pick up his first victory of the season at Pebble Beach yesterday.

He’s 3rd on Tour in putting, and is in double digit or less when it comes to all of his stats. The only stat that falls into triple digits is his Driving Distance. Other than that he is having a pheonomenal year.

His putting has been helping him out the most as I said before he is third in putting and has also been accurate with his drives. He has quickly become an all around type of player and will definently win a couple more tournements if he keeps this up.

His play is absolutley disgusting and nasty and definently has opened a few eyes.

Brandt has always been a solid player and a popular one at that but right now he’s on fire and I’m not sure if this is just some early season heat wave or is he really this good?

Either way, it’s a lot of fun to watch and it’s good to see someone from the south rise up again. Although I am a Chicagoan, I have a tremendous amount of respect for the south side not to mention they gave us Myrtle Beach.

which in my opinion is the mecca of American Golf.

Snedeker has been so good this year that he easily could be a favorite to win a major. He has all the tools to do it. The only that could possibly haunt him is his driving distance.

But he’s so accurate with his drives that it doesn’t really matter how far his drives go.

If Brandt can keep this kind of play up, we may be seeing a potential Major champion and Player of the Year on Tour.
