I See London, I See France...

... I See a Swedish Golfer's Underpants...


1. What's the big deal? Lots of guys like to strip to their underwear and work on their putz.

2. SOTG stopped in, looked at the subject matter for Underpants Wednesday, and decided to continue his sabbatical.

3. With the government clamping down on corporate sponsorships, the PGA had to make some pretty major concessions to get the Fruit-of-the-Loom Open off the ground.

4. "I'm up to my ankles in crap, wearing a leather glove, and my shot just went into the wrong hole. I feel like Andrew Sullivan."

5. The main reason Happy Gilmore 2 failed was the replacement of Adam Sandler with Kevin Costner, but the reuse of gags from Talladega Nights didn't help either.

Pretty much anything goes at John Daly's new signature golf course.

Larry should have never challenged Tiger to a round of strip golf

Best of Army of Dad
Henrik grew tired of the wise cracks about his "short game" and angrily responded that the water was cold!

Best of Jack Reacher
"So I wait here, and you guys will chase the snipe my way, right?"

Texas A&M researcher out on the course to see if a "golf tan" comes from golf clothing or just simply playing golf.

Damn, and I thought dropping your drawers to prove you deserved to hit from the blue tees was just a joke...

"Thank you granny for teaching me to always wear clean underwear; and, thank YOU grandpa for teaching me to always stuff a sock in it!"

Best of Submariner
Da-amn! Who'd a thought that a 9 iron would make that stupid gecko fly that far?

Best of ochagirl
Yes, we GET it. Sweden doesn't get a lot of sun in the winter. Still, have some decorum!

Ironically, now his ankles match the back of his tidy whities.

Anticipating the "soak the rich athlete" taxes from the new administration this golfer decided to save all the money he could on his clothes budget.

"Hey Tiger, you ever have the dream where you are playing a tour event in you undies?"

Talk about your "mucking up the shot..."

While the Hooters Tour continued to be successful, the Joe Boxer Tour did not fare as well.

I say, I believe he has confused his mashie with his niblick.

ORA: Now THAT was a defining moment. And the definition was "shit."

"Yeah, well YOU try making an 8 AM tee time and you'll forget a few things too."

The Rules Committee grimly looked at each other, nodding in silent agreement... and thus was born the Michelle Wie Rule- If you don't look like Wie, your clothes stay on."

ORA:

Thought bubble; "Note to self: never bet Kevin Costner you'll drive the ball further..."

George Eads' post CSI career was the stuff of supporting actor legend...

Submariner said...

Well I'll be tied up in kudzu vine and slapped by the hired hand! Who knew that Ebby Calvin went on to a semi-successful golf career after he left the Durham Bulls?

After reviewing the test shots, Hanes decided to go with Michael Jordan.
