I played a round of golf this last weekend solo and found myself sitting up at the clubhouse bar afterwards listening to a bunch of yahoos rambling on and trying to impress their skills to one another about the players on the PGA Tour. I couldn’t help myself but jump in and throw out a few “Google Challenges” on them simply because their stats sounded WAY off.
…a “Google Challenge” by the way is like throwing a yellow card out and calling b.s. on a fact someone shares. It’s easy enough these days to pull out your phone to fact check right on the spot. No, Bubba Watson doesn’t have the longest average drive on tour. No, Jordan Spieth isn’t leading the total of cuts made in 2015.
So here it is! A simple PGA Tour 2015 golf stats quiz. …and remember. This is golf, so no cheating!
