It’s been a banner year for twitter in the golf world. For myself, twitter has completely transformed the way I watch golf on a Sunday, and it has been enhanced by the creative genius of many tweeters. The below is my best attempt to highlight some of the funniest tweets I saw during 2014. This was a lot more difficult than I thought, because it’s really hard to feel like this is a complete list. I’m sure there are several that I missed, but these are the tweets I could think of off the top of my head, and ones that I received as suggestions on twitter (and with help from Adam Sarson). I’m going to try to do this on a more frequent basis going forward.

Ryder Cup

By the sounds of it, the US team needs Stewart Cink to come in and steal the captaincy away from Watson.

I still laugh thinking about this image of Bubba running over Ted Scott.

This just in from Gleneagles: Bubba Watson has traded in the General Lee and is now ready for the Ryder Cup.

Add a Gilmore quote to the most lasting image of the Ryder Cup from the US perspective, and you get this gold:

"How about a warm glass of shut the hell up?" -Patrick Reed

My 2014 Ryder Cup preview.

— Brendan Porath (@BrendanPorath) August 9, 2014

Some trolling from the European Ryder Cup account! I love it.

Dear @McIlroyRory,

Just to confirm your tee time is 12.00pm (midday). That's 12pm.

Sarson was (shockingly) all over this weird sequence of Rory and Sergio ridiculing Woz.

Are Rory and Sergio making fun of Caroline Wozniacki here? (h/t to @Kevin_Igo for the idea)

— Adam Sarson (@Adam_Sarson) September 6, 2014


Four retweets of this one!? This was the tweet of the entire Masters.

What do Craig Stadler and Derek Ernst have in common? Both playing their last Masters.

— Kyle Porter (@KylePorterCBS) April 11, 2014


Tiger throws a paper airplane at Bubba. It probably missed the fairway.

— Shane Bacon (@shanebacon) August 3, 2014

You need the audio to appreciate this one:

Figjam: "Bones, I kinda like driver right now."

Bones: ?

— Brendan Porath (@BrendanPorath) July 18, 2014


Has Snickers called Bubba and Ted Scott to make a commercial yet? Bubba drives one off planet yells @ Ted, Ted hands him a Snickers. Perfect

— One Putt Blunder (@oneputtblunder) September 4, 2014

This guy wants to be taken more seriously –

— Kyle Porter (@KylePorterCBS) August 7, 2014

So much Ted Scott gold to choose from:

It's a good thing Bubba wasn't in that playoff. Poor Ted Scott would have been blamed for the lack of daylight.

Best Replies:

I made a pretty bad Game of Thrones theme joke. Will Gray with the best possible response that only Thrones fans will understand.

@NoLayingUp the Donaldsons send their regards.

@danjenkinsgd @johnmaginnes @SteveH1030 Dan, while you're making your All Star list, make sure you spell my name properly. #asshole

— Shaun Micheel (@shaunmicheelpga) August 10, 2014

@Legitgolfer22 @bubbawatson he'd blame his caddy for mis clubbing him

— Treb (@Trebor_Mangum) November 5, 2014

@NoLayingUp Luckily, Dustin isn't there or there could be cause for confusion.

— Chris Chaney (@Wrong_Fairway) September 27, 2014

.@Keegan_Bradley Last time I looked, you were wearing MY shoes. You don't see me wearing Air Keegans…

I don’t know who Andrew Gilman is, but this tweet following Jason Day’s par after fording the river at the PGA Championship is a killer.

Jason Day's par was the best-looking 4 I've seen since my 1991 prom date.

— Andrew Gilman (@AndrewGilmanOK) August 9, 2014

Kyle Porter stock is on Koepka like rise. Huge 2014:

Just texted @mattamilian this question: If Rickie shoots ______ he wins.

His response: "Rory."

— Kyle Porter (@KylePorterCBS) August 10, 2014

Say what you want about golf, we're about the only sport Pitbull hasn't invaded.

— Kyle Porter (@KylePorterCBS) June 12, 2014

I couldn’t find the link to Dillon’s actual tweet, but this may have been the best of the PGA Championship

RT @dillonmays_: That guy Phil just smoked is definitely from eastern Kentucky. Probably thought it was just his wife tapping his shoulder

— Ashley Mayo (@AshleyKMayo) August 10, 2014

Here are the European wives. I presume Rory's contingent will take its own photo later.

— Kyle Porter (@KylePorterCBS) September 23, 2014

This was after Sergio’s wayward drive knocked the diamond off a woman’s engagement ring, while Sergio was paired with Rory at the Bridgestone:

If only Sergio Garcia was playing with someone that had an extra diamond ring laying around …

Scott Langley literally stamped his wedge with #TourSauce. I might have shed a baby tear.

Hope @NoLayingUp is ready for some #Toursauce with a side of crowd acknowledgement this weekend.

— Scott Langley (@Scott_Langley) August 28, 2014

Kaymer with a six-stroke lead in the final round. The only guy who could blow this is going to announce it next year for FOX. #shark

— Dan Jenkins (@danjenkinsgd) June 15, 2014

I bet this one hurt. Don't forget to yell "fore," people. (via

— Stina Sternberg (@StinaSternberg) August 18, 2014

That’s all I’ve got for now. Yes, there is an extreme lack of #TourSauce. That may have to be it’s own separate post.
