Country Music Star Jake Owen Lip-Dubs Video with Golfers

If Jake Owen had it his way, he’d be playing in pro-am golf tournaments as the professional rather than the amateur. He’d be making millions off of birdies instead of Billboard hits.But being a country music star while still maintaining a single-digit handicap still isn’t a bad way to get through life.With the help of Golfmix.com, Owen released a video on Thursday featuring...

Still, no one could have expected the volunteers at last week's Travelers Championship to know what sort of anguish was going through Baddeley's heart. So when the Aussie was asked, "How did you do today?" he was polite. "Three-under," Baddeley...

Gainey gains fame beyond the gloves

Not only does Tommy Gainey make fellow country golfer Boo Weekley look like a city slicker, he is perhaps the most compelling rags-to-riches story on the PGA Tour since Lee Trevino. Merry Mex had his Dr Pepper bottle. Gainey has his two gloves. Each has laughed all the way to Wells Fargo, to keep the golfy theme going. Now that he has climbed from rural humble beginnings to the...

"Two Gloves" Is A Tour Winner

((HT: PGATour.com)) The HQ has covered the mini-tours and seen the likes of tomorrow. We've also seen all those guys who cling onto dreams harder than the average bear, sleep in their cars, and drive from point-to-point with a best friend or wife as a caddy just to make ends meet. It's crappy hotels, crappy food, and still trying to find a way to stay in shape and make...
