These back-to-back putts were simply insane at Safeway Open

The Safeway Open is a wrap, and the PGA Tour’s first title belonged to Brendan Steele. However, maybe the biggest highlight from the tournament was from rookie Cody Gribble, who had a remarkable turn of events on the par-3 15th hole.

On that hole, he hit a putt off the fringe of the green and the ball just continued to roll….and roll…and roll (!!). Miraculously though, the young tour pro recovered and nailed the massive putt which was almost on the other side of the green.

So, let this be a lesson that, even when you hit a crappy shot, you can always make a sweet recovery. And oh, how sweet it is.

I should know. I remember over shooting the green on my beloved Acorn Course on the second hole of the par-3 track. I hit a blind pitch shot that rolled right into the cup for a birdie.

Oh, it was glorious. Just believe in your clubs, my friends.

Look at Max Homa’s funny tweet about Tiger Woods’ withdrawal

Max Homa has quietly become one of the funnest twitter follows in golf. He proved this once again, with his tweet regarding Tiger Woods’ withdrawal from the Safeway Open.

It was such a big deal for Homa because, since Woods dropped, it gave the young PGA Tour pro an open spot. Certainly, Homa can pay for dinner and then-some if he can pull out a win at the Safeway Open and earn a nice shiny check.

Homa ranks in the top 30 in the world in driving distance. We shall see how he performs at the PGA Tour’s first event of the season.
