Ready for a chuckle?

So many times we feel embarrassed by the shots we hit or the way we played that day.  But fear not my friends, there are golfers out there who are much worse than you, I mean, much worse!  Just check unforgettable golf bloopers to make your day!
You don’t realize until you watch bloopers like these, that there are a lot of golfers in the world that are a lot worse than you!  The thing that always amazes me is that there is a camera going for all of these.  How many amazing bloopers have we missed because there was no camera!
What this entire compilation makes you realize, is that there are a lot of bad golfers out there.  Why aren’t golf schools doing a booming business?

We’ve all seen golf bloopers posted on the internet, but rarely do we find a bunch of them conveniently edited into a five-plus minute video posted on social media. Thankfully, the folks at Golf Is Life was looking out for us. They combined some of the most epic falls, spills, and club throws for our viewing pleasure.

Golf trick Shots are always fun to watch!  These days there seem to be more and more golfers trying to outdo each other in this department.  Here are the Best 10 Golf trick shots of the year presented by Swing by Swing!

Golf trick shots certainly have come a long way since the days of this game-changing Tiger Woods’ Nike commercial. Aided by the help of the internet, Go-Pro cameras, and even props in some cases, people from across the world have joined together on a mission to up the anti one trick shot at a time. As it turns out 2016 was a good year in this new wave of golf entertainment. Here’s our list of the 10 best we’ve seen in no particular order.

Here asre some amazing trick shots for your entertainment!

1 Driver Flip

This nifty club trick by Josh Kelley is all about timing. Hand-eye-coordination is also crucial as he flips the club up and catches it completely blind above his head while in mid-swing. We wonder how long it took him to perfect it?

2. Tweener

Trick shot connoisseur Ryan Rustand channels Rodger Federer with this tweener. He ricochets it off of a barrier, only to catch his driver and stripe one down broadway. All while the ball was still in the air. Magic.

3. Who needs tees?

Golfer and trick shot specialist Josh Kelley shows that he doesn’t need a tee to rip one down the middle to start a round. What is more, he makes the use of caddies obsolete as he pinpoints his iron into its (proper?) slot in his bag. He proceeds to strap up the sticks and admire his shot with a brisk walk to his next one.

4. Doink

This trick shot employs some props to take it to the next level. The initial putt is blasted off the fringe and hits the barrier squarely. Kelley then cuts it out of mid air with only the slim face of his putter to send it home.

5. Flop

The always entertaining Bryan Brothers come up with a twist on a classic. It starts off with a Phil-esque flop off a ledge. The ball travels backwards and lands right in the wheelhouse, getting tattooed across the water. Welcome to the Smoke Shack, indeed.

Golf Movies and their Quotes – Your Favorite Please!

Golf Movies and their Quotes – Your Favorite Please!
 
 
If you love golf and you love movies, then this post is for you!  Great lines from great golf movies.  Of course we all know who will get the #1 spot, but it is fun to go through the others and remember when you saw these movies.  I personally absolutely loved “The Legend of Bagger Vance” and “The Greatest Game Ever Played”  I have seen both these movies.  Other than Caddyshack”  what is your favorite golf movie and what is your favorite quote?
Golf is a serious sport? Tell that to Hollywood. These golf movie quotes show how much fun movie makers have with the game of golf. Here are some of our favorite lines. (Warning: some clips may contain inappropriate language)

10. I Love You, Man: “This is my nightmare.”

Sydney (Jason Segel) takes one off the shin while trying to help Hailey (Sarah Burns) with her game. His reaction is one we could all relate to.

9. Sideways: “Oops, look out.”

Miles (Paul Giamatti) sarcastically warns another group as he hits their errant shot back at them in Sideways. It’s the fantasy of every golfer who’s ever been hit into—although Miles probably deserved it at the rate he was playing.

8. Swingers: “Dead heat after one hole. This is turning into quite a rivalry.”

Mike (Jon Favreau) and Rob (Ron Livingston) play some hilariously bad shots on an L.A. par-3 course in Swingers, each carding an 8 on the first hole. Watch this scene to learn how NOT to hit a pitch shot. Or a sand shot. Or a 12-foot putt.

https://youtu.be/TscPOjzk0hI

7. Caddyshack: “Gambling is illegal at Bushwood sir, and I never slice.”

Judge Smails (Ted Knight) dooms himself to a certain slice as the snobs take on the slobs in the classic Caddyshack.

https://youtu.be/e5u7yZiV3bI
 

6. Seven Days in Utopia: “See it. Feel it. Trust it.”

Johnny Crawford (Robert Duvall) teaches wayward pro Luke Chisolm (Lucas Black) a simple mantra for hitting the perfect golf shot in Seven Days in Utopia.

I have personally never been pranked before, but it is always fun to pull one on a close friend and see them go through literal hell until the plot is revealed!  Tom Johnson’s good friend Berry Henson sets up a fake caddie, who annoyingly gives poor advice throughout the round.  At one point Tom asks the caddie “Do you want to walk in?” Berry felt this was the time to end the joke! Thanks to AsianTourTV for its participation in this prank!

Beware Asian Tour rookies…Tom Johnson goes through the worst practice round ever as Berry Henson sets him up with a caddie/actor, who gives Tom a horrid time.

Who of the Dude Perfect guys, is King of the Flop? Watch here!

This is a real fun video wth four buddies trying to outdo each other with the art of the flop shot.  Their technique is something to be desired, and it is amazing that nobody was hurt filming this.  Phil Mickelson would get a headache watching these guys, but after all, it is supposed to be fun!  Thanks to Callaway Golf for providing this great entertainment to see who is King of the Flop!
The guys at Dude Perfect are back at it again, this time with a Dude Perfect Battle. The boys tried their luck behind an 8-foot wall, trying to hit a flop shot closest to the pin on the other side. Some of the results were predictable, ie. bladed back into the ribs, but for the most part, the Dude Perfect guys impressed us with their flop ability.

Cool recovery shot by Jason Kokrak to 17 feet!

To say Jason Kokrak hit his shot into the 18th green a little high and wide would be an understatement, he hit it so far high and right that he ended up in one of the hospitality tents.  Much to the glee of the occupants, he decided to play the shot.  What I want everyone to notice is his intense concentration on this shot.  First, a few practice swings to get an idea of how hard and how high to play the shot. Next, he stands behind the ball and visualizes a clear shot through to the green. Lastly, he walks up to the ball and has several looks at a point about 20 feet in front of him that is obviously the line he wants to start the ball on.  This is a professional at work doing what he does best.  Thanks to the Charlotte Observer for sharing this video!  Great stuff!
Tour players often use their surroundings to their advantage. If there’s water short of the green, they take their chances hitting it long into the gallery or use a hospitality tent as a backstop. Sometimes, however, those “safety plays” go a little awry as Jason Kokrak found out on Friday at the Wells Fargo Championship. Playing the 18th hole, Kokrak steered clear of the water guarding the left side of the green by playing out to the right. Unfortunately, Kokrak pushed it a litter further right than he had hoped and ended up on the second floor of a hospitality tent. Instead of taking his drop, Kokrak decided to play the shot.

Skipping your ball across the water is a Money shot!

Skipping your ball across the water hazard in front of a green is really fun, and takes a special kind of shot.  The club selection, the stance and the execution are all important.  Check out the technique needed to play this shot as demonstrated by model Kelly Rohrbach and professional golfer Blair O’Neal.  Learning from them would be even more fun than the shot itself!  Thanks go to the Golf Digest team for the “Sexiest Shots in Golf” video series!
Kelly Rohrbach was recently named Sports Illustrated’s Rookie of the year, but she is no novice when it comes to golf.  Along with Blair O’Neal, the model and former college golfer shows you how to skip your ball across the water with a low-lofted club.

A Cool Way to Display A Corporate Logo. 140,000 Golf Balls!

At last week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, fans and players alike were treated to a truly unique golf tournament. The theme is to raise awareness of how everyone can reduce waste and recycle basically anything, including golf balls.  Tournament organizers added some real personality to the event with a creative display on the 18th hole.   Over 140,000 golf balls were used to make that Waste Management Corporate Logo, and as the time lapse video shows, tournament employees had to go through a painstakingly slow process to make it happen.  A second floating design was used on the 15th hole at TPC Scottsdale, this time consisting of 75,000 recycled golf tees. Pretty cool stuff.
The water holes at TPC Scottsdale presented a challenge for the PGA TOUR pros—and an opportunity for us to celebrate the tournament’s green initiatives. On 18, we created a floating logo that repurposed 140,000 used golf balls, later donated to a local youth charity. On 15, we built a second floating display, this one incorporating 750,000 tees made from recycled plastic. Next year, they’ll be used again.
