Another day, another evening of Jimmy Fallon having more fun than anyone has a right to. The host of The Tonight Show brought Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy into the studio Monday night for a little game called “Facebreakers.” The object was simple: Chip into glass panels depicting your opponent’s face. Clearly, Fallon booked his guests prior to Woods’ decision to forgo professional golf until December. In lieu of chipping, the four-time Masters champion opted to caddie for Fallon. It didn’t help.McIlroy started as McIlroy tends to start everything these days—with a terrifying display of skill. The Northern Irishman called his shot and smashed a ball through the top right panel. Woods and Fallon didn’t know what to do. “Dude…I’m sorry,” Woods told Fallon. Thus began the slaughter. Fallon hit a pair of McIlroy’s panels, but the day belonged to the 25-year-old pro, who demolished Fallon’s faces and received a pre-engraved trophy at the end. Per the Golf Channel, Tiger was advised by doctors not to swing because of his bad back. That didn’t stop him from taking part in the skit, though, because he was happy to work as Jimmy Fallon’s caddy and coach!
A little golf humor:
A guy was getting ready to tee off on the first hole when a second golfer approached and asked if he could join him. The first said that he usually played alone but agreed to the twosome.
They were even after the first two holes The second guy said,
"We're about evenly matched; how about playing for five bucks a hole?"
The first guy said he wasn't much for betting but agreed to the terms. The second guy won the remaining sixteen holes with ease. As they were walking off number eighteen, the second guy was busy counting his $80.00. He then confessed that he was the pro at the neighboring course and liked to pick on suckers.
The first fellow revealed that he was the Parish Priest.
The pro was flustered and apologetic, offering to return the money.
The Priest said, "You won fair and square, and I was foolish to bet with you. You keep your winnings."
The pro said, "Is there anything I can do to make it up to you?"
The Priest said, "Well, you could come to Mass on Sunday and make a donation of $80. And, if you want to, bring your Mother and Father along.....
I'll marry them." ... See MoreSee Less

How do you think about the preround warm up?
Does the quality of your ball-striking during the preround warmup influence your confidence in the first tee?
For example, do you lose confidence when you hit the ball poorly on the range and think this will transfer to the golf course?
Alternatively, if you hit the ball great on the range during your warm up, do you think that you are going to pure you shots on the golf course?
Many golfers assume how well they do during the warmup on the range is an omen for how they will play on the golf course.
But this is faulty thinking because you don't have to hit the ball great on the range to score well on the course.
You don't have to "win the warm up." It's only a warm up. Have you ever hit the ball poorly on the range, but fine on the course? Or vise versa?
Most of our clients learn that the warm up does not dictate how well you will do on the course.
If you struggle with accepting a poor warm up before the round, watch this golf psychology video at YouTube:
