Three Off the Tee Iss. 8
“You Should Have Gone to Maui This Year.”
It’s that most wonderful time of the year….when golf courses slightly thaw and you can hit road balls down the fairway across lightning-fast permafrost. In other words, it’s Three Off the Tee. We’ve got stories and laughs for you, so gear up, buy an extra set of range balls, and let’s do this.
Same Name. Way Different Handicap.
Pro golfer Scott Stallings recently got a surprise when a dude slid into his DMs to let him know they had the exact same name – and the other guy had accidently gotten his invite to the 2023 Master’s Tournament. The question is: who’s in charge of Googling addresses over at Augusta? Also, be honest: if you’re like us, you would have gone yourself, you sly dog.
We’ve All Been There, Bro.
Let’s talk about rising star Collin Morikawa. He had a six shot advantage going into the final at the recent Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. Then on the back nine, three back-to-back bogeys left the door open for Jon Rahm to take the lead – and eventually close the deal. Still, we’re throwing out fist bumps to Collin for a great effort and a cool-ass career ahead of him.
This Town Needs a New Sheriff: Jordan Spieth.
You’ve got to know when to hold them, when to fold them, and when not to piss off Jordan Spieth. He was recently caught on a hot mic at the Tournament of Champions speaking to fans gambling on his plays just off the green within ear-shot. All in, good sport and even better golfer.
The champ never disappoints.
John Daly recently challenged the Country Club Adjacent Podcast (big fans by the way) to a $500-a-hole scramble. Even with knee issues, he hit the crap out of everything, and by the first round, his quote on Insta was killer. Long live the king.
