Social Spotlight: Commentary with a Mexican twist

A week is a long time in golf. It's even longer on social media. NCG's Joe Urquhart takes a look back at the best...
 

From Dustin Johnson‘s baby announcement to south American football commentary at the World Golf Championships, we take a look back at the golfing week across social media to bring you the best of the action in another Social Spotlight.

Ever heard football commentary from the Americas? Well, with the PGA Tour stopping over in Mexico this week, they decided to add a little spice. And it’s pretty darn funny…

We all know world No. 1 Dustin Johnson and fiancée Paulina Gretzky are expecting their second baby, and now we know if it’s a boy or a girl…

Is this the coolest baby announcement, ever? Yes, is the answer you’re looking for…

Speaking of being cool, the PGA of America have finally joined the European Tour in allowing players to wear shorts in practice rounds – including the PGA Championship.

Everyone wants to see Rory’s legs, right?

The 2017 PGA Championship in August will be the first event on the PGA TOUR calendar affected by the decision.

Alright, how many takes are we saying this took?

Answers on a postcard to NCG Towers, please.

Now we’ve all heard this one before. That one friend who never has any money in their wallet to pay so you always land the bill. Well, Dustin Johnson got caught red handed this week and Lee Westwood let the world know about it…

We aren’t surprised Westy isn’t smiling!

First time I've been excited about a double #twins @gabby.woodland

It was a week of baby announcement it seems. But Gary Woodland’s certainly had a twist… twins!

Good luck, Gary – you’re going to need it.

Alright, so maybe this one isn’t exactly a Social Spotlight item but still it’s a story that ends with Justin Biebier being hit in the face with a golf ball – what’s not to like?

Ed Sheeran explains all: “We’d been out to a dive bar. He just drank water and I got hammered.

“Then we went to a golf course, and he lay on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth. I was like, ‘F*ck, I need to aim this properly,’ and I swung.

“And you know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap? But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud, a bit sickening? I heard a sound like the last one, and saw his security guard looking at me like…”

“I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was one of those ‘What the f**k?’ moments.”

Ed. We applaud you.
