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.

With the Wells Fargo Championship going into its Sunday round, Phil Mickelson looks as good as ever. The thing about Mickelson that’s amazing is his ability to hit tough shots from the rough and his skill around the greens. He’s an all-around player on Tour and he proves it time and time again. He can also bomb off the tee but his accuracy is only solid. He hits a lot of shots in the rough for a reason but he knows how to get out of it and is one of the best in the game at recovery shots along with guys like Ian Poulter or when Anthony Kim was on top his game (Wow what happened?).
Kim was one of the better recovery players in golf at one point. Mickelson is a future hall of famer and he’s still playing at a high level andd hasn’t slowed down much at all. He’s extremley dangerous to opposing players and he’s one of the only all-around players in the field so there’s almost nothing stopping hime from getting his second victory of the year. His putting is the only thing that could stop him as he tends to make putts and miss putts but can heat up in a hurry and when he’s hot, he’s making every putt out there. However, he’s tied with a guy that can heat up himself, and that’s Nick Watney.
But the one thing about Watney that’s not going to be towards of his way is his ability on Par 3’s and Par 4’s but his really good on Par 5’s which will benefit him as well as his ability to hit greens in regulation, he is one of the best players in the world at hitting greens in regulation and that is a huge stat that can carry him to victory and improve his birdie average on Par 3’s and Par 4’s. He at one point was considered by many as the best American player on Tour and can win tournaments he’s proven this already. His cances of winning at Quai Hollow are somewhat slim considering the way Mickelson has been playing but it’s hard to tell as almost anything can happen at this tournament and that’s why it’s so popular and has been popular for players as well.
Overall, it should be a strong finish at the Wells Fargo Championship and mickelson will pull off the victory for his second win of the 2013 PGA Tour season and another trophy to his hall of fame career.
