John Daly’s pants have strippers on them

John-Daly-stripper-pants

John Daly has always worn whatever he wants whenever he wants, and the 2014 Open Championship was no exception. Daly fired a 77 in the opening round at Royal Liverpool on Thursday, but he did it with style as usual. This time, Daly had scantily-clad women on his pants.

As Will Brinson mentioned, the ladies look an awful lot like strippers. They’re definitely wearing lingerie, so you can classify them any way you want. Here is a closer look:

You might remember Daly making a fashion statement with his pants earlier this year at the Qatar Masters, only he kept it much more G-rated during that tournament. It doesn’t matter what Daly shoots or how poorly he plays, he is and always will be the best.

Ernie Els three-putts from two feet for triple bogey (Video)

Ernie-Els-puttErnie Els started the British Open with a triple-bogey on Thursday, and it could have easily been avoided if he wasn’t so careless. Els, a 44-year-old veteran who has won 19 times on the PGA Tour, somehow putted three times from inside two feet.

Els had to work hard to put himself in position for a tap-in bogey after hitting a spectator with his tee shot. The fan was bleeding from the mouth, so it’s unclear if that rattled Els. Whatever the case, he missed his two-foot bogey putt and then tried to carelessly knock the double-bogey in with the back of his putter. He missed that, too.

The series was extremely difficult to watch, and it could end up costing Els down the road. While it’s only Thursday, you have to limit mistakes in order to remain in the hunt at the British Open. Els made two brutal ones in a span of a few seconds.

Henrik Stenson snaps club over his leg (Video)

Henrik-Stenson-snaps-clubWe saw some players shoot low scores in the opening round of the British Open on Thursday, but there was still plenty of the standard frustration we have grown used to seeing at Scottish links style courses. Henrik Stenson went into the 17th hole at 1-over on the day, and he finished the 17th with one less club in his bag.

Stenson hit a poor tee shot with a wedge and was not pleased about it. When his caddie reached out to take the club from him, Stenson snapped it over his knee and handed it over in two pieces.

Stenson also broke his driver in frustration during a tournament last season, so he is known for having a bit of a temper on the course. Charl Schwartzel also snapped a club during last year’s British Open. No tournament tests a player’s patience more than The Open.

Tiger Woods yells ‘Jesus Christ!’ at British Open (Video)

Tiger-swearsTiger Woods became frustrated with the photographers lining the 18th hole during the first round of the British Open on Thursday. As Woods was looking to hit his second shot on the par 5, he was distracted by people who were taking pictures. He had to back off of the shot twice.

Tiger was mid-swing the second time he was distracted and stopped at the last second. He shouted out “Jesus Christ!” and the ESPN cameras picked it up perfectly.

The British Open is one of the most difficult tournaments in golf, and it can really frustrate the players. You might remember Tiger cussing up a storm after missing a putt at the same event a few years back. Henrik Stenson also broke a club over his leg on Thursday, so you get the point. It will be a long enough weekend for some guys without having to be distracted by fidgety fans.

Tiger Woods British Open drive hits someone in face (Video)

Tiger-Woods-driveTiger Woods played extremely well in the opening round of British Open on Thursday, especially when you consider that he has been out with a back injury for most of the season. Woods was 3-under for the day heading into the 17th hole. His drive on 17 was a bit off line, and a course marshall paid the price.

Tiger’s tee shot took a high bounce and hit the unsuspecting gentleman right in the face. Fortunately, it appeared he was OK.

Given some of the high grass that lines the fairways at Royal Liverpool, that guy’s face may have actually saved Tiger some trouble. He went on to make par on the 17th.

Mark Calcavecchia missing British Open after flight is cancelled

Mark-CalcavecchiaMark Calcavecchia had an an automatic spot in the 2014 Open Championship field as a past winner who is less than 60 years old. Unfortunately, the 1989 champion was unable to make the trip to Royal Liverpool Golf Club in the United Kingdom. You can blame American Airlines for that.

On Tuesday, Calcavecchia revealed on Twitter that he would be unable to make it to Hoylake in time because his flight had been cancelled.

Calcavecchia was forced to withdraw from the major because of the change in flight schedule. While he was clearly unhappy with American Airlines, he did take the time to congratulate first alternate David Hearn for earning a spot in the field.

At age 54, Calcavecchia was not going to win the Open Championship. That doesn’t mean he wouldn’t have liked to compete, and he did finish in the top 10 back in 2012. Golfers having problems with airlines is nothing new — just ask Rory McIlroy.

Nadia Forde: Rory McIlroy and I are just friends … for now

Nadia-Forde

Rumors have been swirling over the past month or so that Rory McIlroy is dating Irish model and singer Nadia Forde. While Forde denied that the two are romantically involved last month and said they had only met a few times, they have been spotted multiple times together as of late.

According to the Mirror, Forde and McIlroy were seen leaving a bar together in Dublin, Ireland last weekend. A witness spotted them “sitting together and laughing and joking all night.” What does that mean? Not a whole lot, because Forde still insists they are just friends.

“I met Rory last year through friends. He’s a lovely guy,” she told the Sunday People. “The bottom line with me and Rory is we have ­mutual friends who introduced us and we’ve been in each other’s company.”

Forde was then asked if McIlroy was her type, to which she replied, “I don’t really have a type, to be honest with you.” But even if she’s telling the truth about her and Rory just being pals, that doesn’t mean it won’t turn into more.

“I think whoever I end up with I will be friends with first,” Forde added. “The important thing is having ­somebody with ambition and drive who is hard-working. That for me is a massive turn-on.”

Ambition and drive? Check. Rory is a 25-year-old professional golfer who has a nine-figure endorsement deal with Nike. Hard-working? Well, now that he has broken things off with Caroline Wozniacki, no one can argue that McIlroy is spending too much time with the Danish tennis star and not enough on the course.

After he was spotted out with Forde, McIlroy went out and set a course record at Royal Aberdeen with an opening round 64 at the Scottish Open. He also smashed a 436-yard drive that day. He shot a 78 in the second round and kind of played himself out of contention, but you get the point. Rory is starting to look a lot better on the course. His new “friend” must be good luck.
