Ahh, the great sport of golf. So amazing, so beautiful..so…..odd? That was the best way to describe what happened during the first round of the Zurich Classic.
Chris Stroud hit arguably the strangest putt you’ll see all year. However, it wasn’t even the putt that was weird, it was the lucky break he got.
While in the greenside rough, the ball was apparently still moving. So Stroud waited, and as he did so, below happened.

It was certainly smart on team Chris Stroud/Brian Stuard’s part to wait it out. Lord knows that you or I would probably be ready to reach for that 9-iron or pitching wedge because that’s how us impatient millennials roll.
So keep your eyes peeled on that wondrous white ball. Because you never know if it’ll play tricks on you.

Ahh, it’s one of golf’s most interesting “stunts”. Drivers are made for hitting off the tee to start a hole but sometimes, when in the fairway, you may be too far away from the flag to go for it.
So, what do you do? Use your driver on the fairway of course. And that’s what Justin Rose attempted to do at the Zurich Classic.
Let’s just say it didn’t go very well. Rose duffed it.
We can certainly say he won’t be the master at it like Laura Davies is. So, if you really need to kids, remove the “S” on your chest and lay up if you have to. Don’t be shy.
Be sure to follow me on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio! I almost never lay up but then again I never keep score (And never will)!
