Below are a bunch of the best golf tweets of 2016. If I left out your tweet, BE offended. This list is intended to be entirely complete, I most definitely didn’t put it together in less than 30 minutes, and any tweet I left out is 100% intentional, and a personal jab at you. Enjoy!
(Kyle Porter’s Ryder Cup week probably deserves it’s own post, but I just threw them all in here intermittently.)
If his putter did not sit, you MUST acquit!!!

Imagine being Colin Montgomerie, and having to watch Todd Hamilton walk down the hall and into the Champions' locker room year after year.

Well we missed our par putts, then SK made a 4 footer for a 5 on a par 4… Since we made 5, and the par was indeed a 4, that was a bogey https://t.co/bxwsDCBt94

Nothing sums up inequality in sport more than Brooke Henderson winning a Kia for a hole in one. That is literally worse than my car mate.

On Tuesday, a police siren sounded as Colt Knost addressed his ball, playing with Mickelson. Big Gravy said, "They're coming for you, Phil."

Ways golf could "grow the game":
1. More it more affordable
2. Make it take less time
3. More inclusive
4. Less silly rules

Kevin Chappell may not have a backswing by the time he's 65. Just power through from address a la Golden Tee.

This is ridiculous… No penalty whatsoever for DJ. Let the guy play without this crap in his head. Amateur hour from @USGA

I admire the USGA's unwavering determination to show fidelity to the rules. Of course, I admired Titanic's doomed captain for the same.

The U.S. winning 21.5 to 6.5 exactly is 175-1 in case you were wondering where Phil’s second place money from The Open is going this week.

You could fit Ian Poulter's ego between Rory's drive and Phil's drive on No. 10. Barely. But you could do it.
