I’ve never hit a hole in one. You probably haven’t either. If i did – a hypothetical that will never come to pass – I’d probably get a friend of mine to corroborate my story. The advent of twitter has taken public boasting to a disturbing new level. Who needs a friend to vouch for you when you can tweet out a picture of yourself at the course holding the ball that’s made you a golfing legend? You do, excellent golfer*. Never forget it.
The person* I’m passive aggressively referring to is Jaguars Kicker Josh Scobee. Scoobs – I’m sure his bro’s call him Scoobs – really likes golf. Just look at who he hangs out with:
Based on the intensive research I’ve done it’s fair to say Scoobs is pretty good at the game. He hit his second hole in one this summer. Yea, second. Look how happy he is:
Josh may have to take a break from the links to have a chat with his agent. The Kicker was given the franchise tag but the two sides remain far apart on a long term contract. Today the Jaguars signed journeyman kicker Brandon Coutu.
Not everything is going so smoothly for Mr.Hole-in-one. The universe is evening out.
*Edit: A few commenters have noted Scoobs is a stand up guy. His charitable work is quite impressive.
