Did the ‘Mashed Potatoes!’ Chant Help Tiger Woods Finally Win a Tourney? (Video)
Apparently there’s a new craze sweeping the professional golf world for spectators. Frankly, I’m a little upset I didn’t know about this when I attended the Deutsche Bank Championship back in September. Would I have loved to scream, “Mashed potatoes!” every time my favorite golfer hit a good tee shot? Who wouldn’t? However, I’m not sure I would have been able to pull it off with as much passion and enthusiasm as the guy did on Sunday when Tiger Woods hit his tee shot at the 18th hole during Chevron World Golf Challenge. As you’ve probably heard, Tiger won the tournament and ended a two-year victory drought. The question is did the “mashed potatoes” chant help get him there. Check out this video that Mentality Magazine shared with us:
It certainly didn’t hurt, right? For some reason the topic of food always seems to make its way into discussions when dealing with Tiger and golf, but I’m sure Woods welcomes the mashed potato talk over having a hot dog thrown at him. Watch out golf world: Tiger could be back.
Golf clap to Off the Bench for passing the hilarious video along.
