Golf snobs are pissed that Tyrell Hatton wore a hoodie this weekend on way to victory

This past weekend Tyrell Hatton won the BMW Championship this past weekend and you guys wont believe this…but he wore a hoodie! The nerve of this guy. Anyways, Golf elitist are outraged that any player would wear a hoodie as obviously its not the proper golf etiquette.

I for one, love that look. I think it looks stylish enough to be acceptable on the golf course. We all in the northeast play in some rough conditions, obviously many of us have worn winter hats before and I am sure quite a few of us have worn hoodies throughout a round as well. To me, golf is an athletic game and you need to be comfortable to play well. If that means rocking a hoodie that looks nice then so be it.

English Club Wearside Golf club does not agree though and made sure to send out a reminder to its players.

“Dress Code

In light of Tyrell Hattons recent success and fashion statement and following discussions on this, can I draw your attention to the Clubs dress code and re emphasise that “hoodies” are not acceptable golf attire for Wearside Golf Club, no more so in fact than designer ripped jeans. ??
I hope this avoids any unnecessary misunderstandings on this subject.”

This place looks real enjoyable to be a member at….

Martin Laird holes out ridiculous bunker shot

What an incredible shot here from good ol Marty, Ball is absolutely plugged and up against the edge of the bunker. Just hit an explosion shot and hope for the best. Laird went -7 on the 9th hole over the 4 days with 3 eagles and a birdie.

Kentucky golfer blows 5 shot lead on final 2 holes, including playing wrong ball on the 18th

Wild scene at the Blessings invitational. Some dude Goff who doubled 17, was in the bunker on 18 with 4 other balls. he played the wrong ball out of the fairway bunker on 18 leading to a triple. Tennessee player Hunter Wolcott who has 6 down with just 2 left was shocked to find out he was tied on 18. With a par on 18, the tie breaker is low player on the most recent round.

update, I posted this too early, Wolcott missed a 2 footer for the win and Goff held on to victory. Crazy ending.

LFG Maine Recap

Unreal that we have not entered out 3rd State with this little league of ours, but here we are. LFG Maine made its dramatic entrance into the LFG world yesterday with an a great event held at The Links at Outlook in Berwick. There were some good scores out there as Kyle Bennett shot one of his best rounds right out the gate with a 77/65 on his way to victory. Dylan O’neil who was playing as a +1 handicap shot a 73 to take home low gross honors, great round. (Not to mention he shot a 68 in the morning at the ledges)

Congratulations to Jamie Arnold and Sara Feehan who both shot +2 and were some of LFG’S first females to almost take home top honors. Good playing ladies!

Chris Roussin was the low NH Guy as he shot a 79/73 to finish at +2. He continues to strike the ball well as we head into the colony cup and will be a force to reckon with down in Mass.

Rumor has it is that our boys from the North will be looking to hold one more event, possibly the weekend of October 24th keep an eye out and come join us if your free and let’s get Maine rolling!

Winged Foot does not let member book tee times…instead they do this

So, Winged foot is obviously a prestigious course in NY. First of all, They do not have carts, which obviously means everyone is a walker. No phones outside of the locker room, and it is expected that all rounds are done in less than 4 hours. (Wouldn’t that be nice). One of the more peculiar things that Winged Foot does though is not let members make tee times. Instead what is done, is that once a group has all 4 of their players on the property, a player walks up to the first tee and places a ball on the tee box. obviously if you go up and there are already 2 other balls up there, you will now be the 3rd group to tee off and so on. Pretty cool system if you ask me, Maybe we will try this at an LFG event.

These greens are insane, and the course is ridiculous. Can’t imagine how easy it is to play this course in under 4 hours.
