Keegan Bradley Predicts The Bruins Will Win The Stanley Cup
Keegan Bradley has never tried to hide his love for all things Boston sports and in his latest installment of Putnam Investments “Off Course” segment, Bradley predicted the Bruins would be the next team to be parading their championship trophy through the streets of Boston.
Bradley might be onto something, as the Bruins have already advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, where they’ll face their hated rivals, the Montreal Canadiens. I wonder if Bradley would be eligible for a ticker-tape parade if he won the Masters or U.S. Open?

GolfMagic.com Names 10 Best Golf Innovations
Featured on the list are things most modern golfers couldn’t imagine living without. The Big Bertha driver, the PING Anser putter — awesome innovations that changed the game forever. While we’ve taken a swing at making a similar list, this one is pretty comprehensive.
I, for one, can’t tell you how much the Big Bertha helped me when I was learning the game or how many times my PING Anser putter has saved my butt, so I can’t argue with this list. In that, I’m sure I’m not alone.

It’s not like we’ve been dying for an explanation from Boo Weekley about his now-famous “Bull Dance” during the 2008 Ryder Cup matches at Valhalla since, well … he’s Boo Weekley and we expect him to do crazy/odd/dangerous things. And to be honest, we all kind of guessed it was inspired by the one done by Happy Gilmore, so it’s really no surprise that that’s where it came from. That being said, it’s still a chance to listen to Boo wax poetic, and that is always fun.

Whether it’s Daryl taking a few divots out of a zombie’s face, or the Governor eliminating Caesar Martinez with an iron, the show’s writers clearly have an interest in golf. Read More
Jason Dufner Visits Milwaukee, Leaves Divots at Miller Park
It may have been more than seven months since he claimed his first major victory at the 2013 PGA Championship, but Jason Dufner is still reaping the benefits of that glory.
Dufner was in Wisconsin earlier this week to promote the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Kohler. In typical Dufner fashion, he made sure to take in the sights and even bust some chops on Twitter. Read More
Out Of Bounds
Jimmy Fallon has done it again. While golf has had a big presence on his show — most recently when Cameron Diaz was in town — today’s Out of Bounds video features an epic lip-sync battle between Fallon and Emma Stone. The lyrics were flying fast and the performances were not only hilarious, but downright impressive.
