There is a Star Wars fan among all of us. The story of an intergalactic struggle with fraught Oedipal undertones has seeped into nearly every corner of popular and commercial culture: toys, books, video games, DVDs, and on. Even golf is not immune. In honor of May the Fourth (be with you), we offer you our Jedi-like guidance on how to get more Star Wars into your game.

Even the most ardent Tiger-haters might not go so far as to cast Woods as an evil Star Wars emperor. But that didn’t stop the BBC in 2011, when it put out what must rank as the cheesiest Masters promo of all time. Warning: the production quality is only slightly better than a hologram beamed from a droid.

TRACK DOWN THESE BAGS
You could scour the entire interstellar system and not come across these elusive Bridgestone golf bags, their shape and color scheme evocative of two iconic characters: Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper. Keep your eye on eBay, though, and you might find them. They fetched about $500 when they were first released in 2008.
