Social Spotlight: PGA super-heroes & Spieth’s $22 millionOctober, 2015
Our rundown of the week on social media features golf – but not as we know it
Viral Video of the Week
We’ve speculated before about what golfers would be like as superheroes, so it’s nice to see the PGA Tour take this idea and run with it in their Presidents Cup promo video.
Even if it makes very little sense.
The short video introduces an animated Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and Bubba Watson for Team USA, while Jason Day, Danny Lee and Adam Scott (with surfboard – obviously) fly the flag for the International Team in South Korea.
Watch the video here.
However, instead of depicting a series of foursome and fourball matches between the two sides, the video confusingly suggests the teams will unite to fight a gigantic alien horde, Independence Day-style.
We have to say we’re sceptical about how much of all that will actually take place during the match play event. Perhaps during the Friday fourballs? But we do like the idea that the two sides would put aside petty differences to save humanity.

Jordan Spieth has had an incredible year. World No 1, two Majors, five PGA Tour wins and FedEx Cup champion to top it off.
This photo from Bleacher Report sums it all up perfectly…
Instagram of the Week
Fresh from a famous U.S win in the Solheim Cup, social media fanatic Michelle Wie posted this photo of her and George Lucas hanging out.
Looks like she’s a bit of a fan-girl. Or as one commenter puts it: “I think I just had a nerdgasm! Possibly the greatest photo ever taken! LOL!”
Could she be set for a role in the new Star Wars? You heard it here first…
