Who Can Write the Best Miguel Angel Jimenez "Most Interesting Man in Golf" One-Liner?

Recommended Posts

I'm filling in this week on [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/b/hittin_the_links]Hittin' The Links[/URL], and one of the links I came across was a video from Ping about Miguel Angel Jimenez's crazy stretching routine, called, appropriately, "The Most Interesting Stretching Routine in the World." [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBdlGz79iCU[/VIDEO] That got me thinking, what would it be like to write a bunch of one-liners in the style of the Dos Equis "The Most Interesting Man in the World" commercials, but golf-themed? So I wrote a bunch. Most are staggeringly, frighteningly awful (I'll post even the worst ones at some point if the thread takes off), and I'm sure you guys can come up with better ones. If you need a refresher on the joke structure, a quick Google search yielded this: http://www.livin3.com/blogs/positive-life-blog/8486777-100-most-interesting-man-in-the-world-quotes Most of them are common cliches that have been reworked. I'd recommend writing down every single one that comes to your mind, no matter how awful you think they are. Then post them. (Maybe point to the ones you think are the best.) In the end, I'll pick a winner. All I can offer at this time is a rep point, but since I'm a moderator, mine are worth extra! :-D Here are a few of mine, for example: For him, only 30% of his putts left short don’t go in. He is “da man.” All of his bounces are members' bounces. He drives and putts for dough. Go for it!

Even when you "nice" him, his putts drop.

When he makes a hole in one, the rest of the players at the course buy him a drink.

He's never between clubs.

I'll leave the good ones for other people. ;)

There is an entire district in Rioja reserved for his personal consumption. His cigars are rolled between the thighs of virgin Korean LPGA players. The king of Spain calls him "Jefe", and gets eight a side.

PS: The original stretching video, with the Peter Alliss commentary, must be regarded as the ur-text!

I don't always bring a bottle of wine to the range, but when I don't I bring two. Stay thirsty my friends.

Cuba imports cigars from him (This is actually from a commercial)

He never carries a lighter because his cigars spontaneously combust

The only time he ever lost a match was when he dropped it trying to light his cigar.

When he hits into the trees, the trees are in trouble.

Rickie Fowler gives 18 footers to him.

Hilarious. Nicely done. These remind me of Chuck Norris jokes so I checked if there were golf-specific ones: http://www.chucknorrisfacts.com/taxonomy/term/630

His topped drive rolled 25 yards past your bomb

Miguel always has honors.  Even if you DID win the previous hole

His playing partners are ALWAYS away regardless of where a ball lies

He always plays it where it lies.  Even from a water hazard

He once sliced a ball off the planet just to experience a lost ball

The closest he's been to a water hazard is a ball washer

Miguel has never taken a penalty stroke, but levied many

He IS, the most interesting golfer alive.

Miguel is Antoni Gaudi in disguise, his bunkershots are on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Miguel's bunkershots are close AND a sigar. Miguel is not given the honour, he is the honour.

    • What has changed? The length-lie dependency has been removed by changing color code bands to an “S-shape”. Each color code has a fixed lie angle irrespective of club length. This removes the need for converting color codes when using non-standard-length clubs with the AFS system. Color codes have moved to 1° increments to simplify lie-angle offerings. Yellow and Purple color codes have been removed. Updated length recommendations better align static recommendations with dynamic fitting results. Height columns are now scaled for easier use and overlaps are removed. How is it more precise? By analyzing over 20,000 fittings from our nFlight database, combined with years of research, we have made data-driven changes to better align static and dynamic fittings, particularly with respect to players’ length recommendations. 75% of players will fit to a dynamic color code within one of the new static recommendation compared to 70% previously, while 95% will fit within two color codes compared to 90% on the previous color code system. How is it simpler? Removing the length-lie dependency eliminates the need to convert color codes when building AFS heads at over/under standard length. It also removes the need to convert back when ordering clubs at over/under standard length after a fitting using our AFS system. Removing height overlaps and scaling eliminates ambiguity. Plotting height and wrist-to-floor measurements for a static recommendation is more intuitive.
    • I get down to the Phoenix are 3 or 4 times a year and golf everytime.   it all really depends on what time of year you go.  If its summer, you can get on anywhere for a decent price.  If it's winter you've got to look around to find something decent and affordable.   without regard to price, my favorites are:  Greyhawk (both courses equally)
      Wi-ko-pa (both courses equally)
      Troon North (monument)
      Gold Canyon (Dinosaur).  --to be fair though, the greens at Gold Canyon are not in the same shape as the others, but it is cheaper---
      Ak-Chin Southern Dunes I don't hate TPC, but I probably wouldn't play it again.  too many better courses for similar price down there.     If I go in peak season, I like Longbow in Mesa, for an affordable course. 
         
    • I agree with this. A "quiet end" of the driving range would be great for me. When I was in college I never could understand those people who could watch TV and do homework, or listen to music while they study.. I always needed to be in the quiet part of the library to get anything done.   
    • You can get something in the middle, a little forgiveness, a little playability. Something like the Titleist AP3 or the Ping i-series, or even the Callaway Epic. You don't have to go straight blade to get some playability.
    • I voted one, but I am not really sure it's  even a swing thought. My final thought is I want the ball to land in a chosen area, out there. Those landing areas get smaller the closer I get to the hole.  Once I pick a landing area, I just walk up, set up, swing, and hit the ball. This is pretty much the same scenario when I practice. I just swing the club with out thinking about it. I either hit a decent shot, or I don't. No big deal. Once it's done, unless it's really great shot, it's forgotten about, and I am on to the next shot.
