Aces+Cars+Danielle Kang = More Great Golf Photos

What happens when you mix Danielle Kang, holes-in-one and cars?

Well, since it involves Danielle Kang, it means more great photography.

Trust us on this one.

Kang, who’s having a great 2014 on the LPGA Tour and is a two-time U.S. Women’s Amateur champion, won the 2011 North & South Amateur, and has been a friend to Pinehurst ever since. But she’s made headlines these last two weeks after making aces in events on Tour, winning cars for each.

We’re happy for Danielle, and not just because she’s an incredibly down-to-earth person and extremely kind.

It’s because these aces mean photo opportunities. And if there’s anything we’ve learned about Danielle over the last few years, it’s that she has a great eye – and ideas – for photography.

2 golf balls, 1 putting stroke…and 5 questions

It’s happened before, and perhaps it’s happening againgolf trick shot post begats another golf trick shot post.

A few questions come up with this one, though. First, some explanation, thanks to thegolfnewsnet.com:

The putter here is Matthew Field, the distance covers just 6 feet, and the shot was done at Australia’s Brookwater Golf & Country Club.

OK, now that we have that out of the way…the questions:

  1. Real, or fake?
  2. What’s the deal with the opening seconds of the video, with the balls mysteriously rolling back to the putter?
  3. He doesn’t take very long to set it up, does he?
  4. Real or fake? We ask again because this is immediately the first question every skeptic asks on trick shot videos. So, if fake, HOW did he fake it?
  5. And if real, impressive?

Let us know what you think below.

Bryan Brothers’ trick shots are a treat

The Bryan Brothers are at it again. This time, they’ve done something we’ve NEVER seen before — trick shots in the dark.

That’s right, they turned off the lights and used glow-in-dark gear to pull off a feat fitting for Halloween week.

The kicky background music and fantastic visual effects make this video quite a treat. See for yourself.

Michael Jordan wins again…

With the NBA season beginning, Michael Jordan, owner of the (returning) Charlotte Hornets, has taken over the @hornets Twitter handle for the day.

Which gave PGA Champion Keegan Bradley and Ryder Cup compatriot an idea.

Needle His Airness.

Then Jordan replied.

Game over, indeed.
