Rickie Folwer Gets His Porsche Back
As has been documented numerous times before on this site, it's good to be Rickie Fowler. If living it up, doing back flips off Bubba Watson's dock, taking BP with the St. Louis Cardinals, flying high with Red Bull or playing golf with no shirt wasn't enough, Fowler has gotten his Porsche back. Now, everyone knows how much he loves speed and an adrenaline rush, so hopefully Fowler won't enjoy this baby too much.
Excited to have this girl back in the garage...thanks to my good buddy @jbellz18 for getting her looking on point...@rennsport_one is the place for Porsche maintenance or upgrades #GT3RS
In case you were wondering what his baby looked like before its trip to the shop, here's an older pic from Fowler's Instagram account:

Golf-Inspired Beer Gaining Popularity
When it comes to enjoying my favorite pastimes on the weekend, nothing helps me relax more than playing golf and drinking an ice-cold adult beverage. Luckily, Triple Bogey Brewing & Golf Co. has me covered.
As the brainchild of Geoff Tait, a 35-year-old up-and-coming beer brewer, Triple Bogey Brewing & Golf Co. started in July 2013. He currently makes a single product out of his brewery: a golf-themed blonde lager. Read More
Golfstradamaus: Zurich Classic & Volvo China Open
First of all, if anyone sees Matt Kuchar, tell him I said congratulations on finally breaking through and picking up that win you've been robbing from me the last three weeks. I didn't realize there was so much pressure coming from my picking you to win. Glad you could finally clutch-up and cost me another victory. This is personal.
Sorry about that, just had to get it off my chest. Read More
Out Of Bounds
Brian Williams raps Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice." Do you really need to know more? It feels like it's been forever since a Jimmy Fallon segment has landed in the Out of Bounds section, but I for one am glad he's back. This is sheer perfection.
