The USGA wants professional golfers to hurry things up on the course. All courses. Even miniature golf courses.
In a new spot from the United States Golf Association, Tiger Woods is seen taking plenty of time to line up a putt. As he prepares to take his shot, a small child asks Tiger to hurry up by giving him the "While we're young" treatment, revealing that Tiger is playing on a whimsical miniature golf course.
The ad is from the "Pace of Play" campaign the USGA rolled out in an effort to speed up the game of golf. Other commercials have featured Arnold Palmer, Butch Harmon and Paula Creamer.

Tiger Woods is just four shots off the lead heading into the third round of the US Open. I’m pretty much figuring he will start out hot and scare everyone of the leader board. How great would tomorrow be if it’s Tiger and Phil in the final pairing, we can only hope.-TO

Lindsey Vonn needs a reality check.
She is a skier. In the grand scheme of things there are probably 30 sports people care more about than skiing.

She certainly wouldn’t be getting this type of attention if she wasn’t dating him.
