The Weirdest Moments From the Year in Golf

Another golf season is in the books, and we recap the weirdest happenings of the 2014 year. 

1) Rory McIlroy’s Golf Ball Lands in Fan’s Pocket

This fan is glad Rory didn’t have to play it where it lies. 


2) Sergio Garcia Knocks Diamond Out of Ring of Spectator

At least she got a free ball for her troubles. 


3) Phil Mickelson Hits a Wedge from the Hospitality Tent

This is peak Phil right here. Fist-bumping fans as he hits a flop shot from the tightest of lies at the 2014 Barclays. 


4) Fan Attacked By Cactus At WGC-Match Play



5) Rory McIlroy Saves PGA Championship Trophy From Falling

Rory can do no wrong! He even saves Ted Bishop from embarassment on the 18th green after winning the PGA Championship. It’s too bad he wasn’t around to keep him from tweeting at Ian Poulter a few months later. 


6) Bubba Claus

Need we say more? 


7) Danny Lee Almost Whiffs Twice at The Edge of the Island Green at the Players Championship

Admit it, you’ve been here. 


8) Bird Steals Golf Ball From Green

If only the bird would drop it closer to the hole.

The guy went to LSU. No one is surprised.
