In case you missed it yesterday, Ernie Els, moved way up on my list of favorite golfers!

Why?! You ask…

Well, I called a bunch of my buddies on the tour to wish them luck at The Masters like I usually do… We chatted about golf obviously, and I explained that my putting was struggling the other day and how it was frustrating. A couple of them told me, “Don't worry, it happens to the best of us. You just have to brush it off and keep going!”.

Right. I thought to myself.

Then, my pal Ernie Els steps up on the first hole and takes on for the team.

The team, in this scenario, is all of us amatuer golfers who struggle on the green every once in a while.

Ernie was within 3 ft, yes 3ft, the type of shot you would expect pro's to just pick up the ball and walk away because it is a gimmie.

Ernie took his shot…. HE MISSED?!?! What?

Then we went on to miss the next 3 putts to ultimately end up with a total of 6 putts! Ouch!

Have a look at the video here:


After this WORST FIRST HOLE IN MASTERS HISTORY, Ernie finish the rest of the round shooting only 3 over par, for a total of +8. 

If this was me, I would be on tilt, and the rest of the round would be full of boogies! But Ernie pulled it together pretty well.

So, I just want to say THANK YOU ERNIE!!

Thank you for being a nice guy and showing me that anyone can miss those putts. 

Thank you for showing me that it is possible to regroup and play well after this happens.

Thank you for reminding me that I should never pick up the ball on the green and assume it is a gimmie.

You took one for the team on a world stage. That takes guts, and that's why you moved up on my list of favorite golfers!

Good luck in the rest of the tournament. You can check out the Leader Board Here.

Golf Beer Pong And Ways To Play It

Have you heard of the new, most amazing drinking and golf skill game out there? It's called Golf Beer Pong, and it is awesome! Check out the video of Brian Baumgartner (aka Kevin from the TV show 'The Office') playing with Mark Willard, who is the host of “Celebrities in Golf Carts” (More on this series in another post).

In this version they set up a 3 teir pyramid of beer jugs (have to go big on the golf course), filled with beer. They each take turns chipping their golf ball into the jugs in a race to see who can get 3 into the jugs. They appear to edit a lot of the shots out, as it looks like it takes them quite a while to get to 3 in the jugs. They play for a simple prize in this version of a “Best Golfer Ever” beer-stein. I won't ruin who wins, you have to watch the video for that.

Then follow on past the break to check out the rules of Golf Beer Pong, along with some Variations to Golf Beer Pong!
