DTCC 2011 Recaps: The Dumbest Things That Happened in Golf



We did these same reviews a year ago, and figured they were a hit, so why not roll them out for 2011. Here are the dumbest things that happened in golf in 2011.

Padraig Harrington was disqualified from the Abu Dhabi Championship because he sort of, kind of moved his golf ball, continuing a tradition of really stupid rules in the game of golf.

Funny foreshadowing of the year for John Daly, who went on a rant in early January about how tournaments wouldn't invite him to play (namely, the WaMo and the Hope) only to piss off the Australians so much late in the year because he walked off the course that they said they'd never invite him back to play! A win-win of stupidity!

Speaking of Daly, he put a TV in his golf bag. Seriously. I'm assuming that's to count the strokes on holes when he doesn't know what he made.

Tiger Woods spit on a green and the entire freaking world went Skip Bayless on him, which was a little dramatic for my taste ( and here is a gallery of others golfer spitting so everyone could relax about it).

That thing Martin Kaymer wore at the Accenture.

Some PGA Tour wives pitched an idea to get a reality show going. No, I'm not kidding. If Tim Allen isn't the host of this, I'm going to be pissed.

Tiger Woods came out with an iPhone app that costs $10 and is supposed to help you swing better. If you are thinking this is a good idea, might I suggest you using the $10 for a hammer, and then hitting yourself repeatedly over the head with it?

Some dudes robbed a house in Augusta and then ran over to the most famous landmark in the city, Augusta National. Spoiler alert: they got caught.

Jerry Rice continues the "I can't break 80 in a golf tournament but I will continue to steal spots from real Nationwide Tour players" trend. I'm not a fan. (He went on to WD from his next attempt at the Nationwide Tour, making this whole thing even more ridiculous.)

A lot of people call it their Sweet Sixteenth. Those people are not Kevin Na, who made that number on a par-4 at the Valero Texas Open.

Maybe the dumbest thing of 2011 was the PGA Tour's idea to change Q-School.

This Tiger tweet.

Obtw, Rice wasn't the only former pro athlete that tried out the Nationwide Tour. So did John Smoltz. I had a lot to say about this as well.

Rory Sabbatini being Rory Sabbatini.

Rickie Fowler got in trouble for wearing his hat backwards AFTER he completed his round of golf. He does this practice during interviews to give his website some exposure. I suggested another thing for his head.

David Toms won the Players Championship this year in dramatic fashion (Note: dramatic in the sense that he didn't win). Sadly, locals in his hometown of Shreveport, La. didn't even get to see the end of the tournament.

Probably not the best way to drive a golf cart.

Hunter Mahan admitted his favorite band was Linkin Park.

NBC left out a part about God in the "Pledge of Allegiance" during their U.S. Open coverage and everyone in the world freaked the F out.

Bubba Watson's quotes from France: Called the Eiffel Tower "that big tower." Called Versailles "the castle we are staying next to." Called the Louvre "a building starting with L." Called the Arc de Triomphe "this arch I drove round in a circle" and also "the arch way." So, yeah.

A kid made an ace at the U.S. Junior Am, but because his group was playing slow, he got penalized and had to write it down as a birdie.

Rory McIlroy flipped out on Twitter at a BBC analyst.

The continued fun with TigerWoods.com headlines.

In hindsight, maybe Rory McIlroy should have taken a drop during the first round of the PGA Championship.

John W. Schierman.

Lee Janzen's golf clubs did not have a smooth flight to Vegas.

This guy wins for worst person of the year in the golf world.

Kevin Na whiffed on a drive, but was somehow not penalized for it, which was very strange.

Some guy threw a hot dog at Tiger Woods, making it the first time ever that Tiger wasn't the one throwing the hot dog around.

This picture.

And lastly, Callaway announced Justin Timberlake would be their new creative director of golf.
