Right now I’m watching the South African Open (when I am also supposedly writing). Most would think, “What? Golf? Seriously?” I love golf–watching and playing. To prove anything can happen during a tournament, I present you with golfers who’ll do the unthinkable to save par or even a birdie…literally!
Here are six gents who stripped down to almost nothing in the name of the game.
I suggest viewing at home. NSFW=Not Safe for Work.
Sweden’s Henrik Stenson aka the Iceman was determined to save par. His lucky caddy, Fanny, had a close-up view. She didn’t even bat an eye at Henrik’s antics on live TV coverage at a PGA Tour event.
Not to be outdone, James Heath at the Trophy Hassan II in Morocco was determined to save a shot on the European Tour.
The European Tour seems to like stripping to save shots. Here is Haydn Porteous of South Africa hoping to save a shot at the Tshwane Open.
Back over on the PGA Tour, Gary Woodland decided to follow suit.
Shawn Stefani decided if it was good enough for PGA fellow tour pros Henrik and Gary, he’d take it all off, too.
But the real hero was Greg Own at the Players Championship. During a practise round, the English golfer stripped off his clothes to save a birdie, but it had nothing to do with his score. He saw a baby blue jay in a dangerous situation and went into the pond to save the lil baby birdie who’d fallen into the water and risked drowning.
That’s it. Now if only Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Brooks Koepka, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Joost Luiten, and Martin Kaymer would doff their clothes for the good of the game!
