Social Spotlight: Free coffee for Dunne & good vibes for WieJuly, 2015
A rundown of the golfing week on social media
Hot off the back of a fantastic run at St Andrews – which saw him sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard alongside Louis Oosthuizen and Jason Day after three rounds – 22-year-old Irish amateur Paul Dunne was rewarded with free coffee for the rest of his days by one cafe.
A pretty sweet deal, though it prompted concerns from the 22-year-old about the hazards of a caffeine overdose.
And as one comment points out: it’s free beer if he wins next year.
“pauldunne11 Haha brilliant! Looks like I’m not sleeping for a while!”

Viral Video of the Week
This golfer is so excited about his brand new GoPro. He takes it down with him to the course; he can’t wait to show his mates a recording of his swing in glorious high-definition. GoPros are brilliant.
Take 1. Why wasn’t the camera behind or to the side of his address? I don’t know, but it’s great to watch.
“Are you serious? It’s f****** broken!”

Other Photo of the Week: Trump steals Women’s British Open Spotlight
Donald Trump claimed that he would only be discussing golf but he couldn’t help himself. The GOP candidate used his trip to the Women’s British Open at Turnberry to slate Obama and Hillary Clinton.
He also claimed that he would “get on very well” with Russian president, Vladimir Putin.
Just look at his little hat.
