Golf can sometime be boring, lets admit that. But when animals get into action, it is a different ball game. Watch and enjoy this below video compilation (or click here) of the animals/birds that gives a damn to some some of the biggies on green.
For knowledge sake, animals on a golf course are considered “outside agencies” by the Rules of Golf. Here are what the rule books says about these outside agencies.
19-1: If a player’s ball in motion is accidentally deflected or stopped by any outside agency, it is a rub of the green, there is no penalty and the ball must be played as it lies.
18-1: If a ball at rest is moved by an outside agency, there is no penalty and the ball must be replaced.
Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (click here for video) on Monday as part of their promotion for a new line of Nike golf gear. Fallon challenged Rory to a game that involved chipping balls at glass pictures of each other’s faces
Remember when Jimmy Fallon Beat Tiger Woods at Wii Golf way back in 2009 (watch here)? Not this time! Rory, who is currently at the peak of his career riding on three consecutive victories (in the Open Championship, the Bridgestone Invitational and the US PGA), made a strong showing. Does this count as the fourth?
Ever wondered what lightning could do to a golf course?
Here is a visual (or click here) of the aftermath of a lightning striking the flag-stick of the 1st hole in Quteniqua Golf Course, South Africa. Luckily, the strike occurred at night and nobody was injured.
Looks like god scored his hole-in-one there!
Last night’s lightening struck the flag stick on the 1st of Outeniqua. Not an everyday sight around here. pic.twitter.com/NflDPEd2dN
