Hello everyone and pleased Monday! Morale is high above here. I put in the weekend enjoying my to start with spherical of golfing in Rhode Island with my ideal buddy and cousin, which implies it at last feels like spring in New England. And then I viewed Jordan Spieth gain the RBC Heritage on Sunday, which reminded me of my youth when Spieth received all the time. Ideally we are heading in that course as soon as yet again! Here’s what caught my eye on the internet this previous week.

Spieth’s large gain

Perspective! Jordan Spieth received for the very first time as a father more than the weekend. And much more importantly (just kidding), Jordan Spieth and Easter Sunday have turn out to be a person of the most legendary duos in golfing. As we know, Spieth won the Valero Texas Open up past Easter and the RBC Heritage yesterday. Masters Sunday falls on Easter future calendar year, so I’m sending superior vibes to Spieth on that entrance.

Congrats to the 13-time PGA Tour winner, who acquired $1.4 million on Sunday. And shout out to the universe, which wished to continue to keep Spieth humble by possessing the emcee phone him “Justin” at the trophy ceremony. Hey, Spieth and Justin Thomas are aged buddies, so you just cannot thoroughly blame the man for mixing up their to start with names underneath strain. Also, is acquiring a incredibly popular person’s identify erroneous the ultimate ability go? It would make me want to try this at some point.

And simply because it is Jordan Spieth, we were being supplied but an additional purpose to be a enthusiast of his on Sunday.

Generally earning time for the fans!

A Max Homa impersonator?

We all know Max Homa is the supreme Twitter jokester, so you simply cannot blame golf Twitter for considering he truly sent a supporter a hand-written be aware and a printed-out photo of pizza after he questioned for some Domino’s final month.

Homa took to Twitter to clear up the confusion, but it designed me ponder who pretended to be him and took the time to mail a letter as the three-time PGA Tour winner? I just cannot determine if I’m a lot more weirded out or impressed. My takeaway is that golf Twitter is as spectacular in its commitment as it is bizarre.

An LPGA wedding!

Mel Reid and Carly Grenfell bought married about the weekend in Inexperienced Cove Springs, Florida. Reid is a European Solheim Cup hero and Grenfell is a senior material manager for the Korn Ferry Tour, so this marriage ceremony could go down in historical past publications at the golfiest wedding of all time. Congrats to the wonderful couple!

No, not The Match VI, even though I’m energized for that, much too! I feel I’ve stated prior to that I’m not genuinely a Football Girl, but I’m striving to come to be 1. On the scarce occasions that I do uncover myself intrigued in it, I normally try to locate a golf link. And up until finally this past 7 days, I couldn’t uncover any golf-similar Joe Burrow content. You are going to see under that I submitted an formal complaint about it to the web in February.

So I was really delighted to arrive across the following write-up, which showcased Joe Burrow on a golfing study course. Of training course, I would’ve preferred to see additional of Burrow’s video game in this clip. What is his swing seem like? His placing stroke? What type of golf equipment and bag is he operating with? But this is all we acquired.

I did, on the other hand, however study a great deal from this small movie. For occasion, he’s a no-hat dude on the class. He’s also into black golf footwear. And he’s NOT letting some wedding ceremony get in the way of his spherical. Burrow teed it up with his teammate Sam Hubbard, 49ers defensive conclude Nick Bosa and Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns. Chat about an A-listing outing.

Frittelli’s heroic shot

Masters Sunday experienced McIlroy and Morikawa’s hole-outs from the sand on 18. I’ll see those people and raise you Frittelli’s Sunday punch-out from … the Spanish moss?

This shot is wild. 1st off, I’d like to know how the ball didn’t tumble to the ground. I’d also like to accept how fantastic the shot sounded. I wrestle to make get in touch with that sound when I’m in the center of the fairway, in no way thoughts hitting from mid-air.

It’s a bummer that Frittelli was penalized for this shot, but even with the penalty I can guarantee you I will not quickly neglect this punch-out.
