Christie Kerr and Coors Light

30 posts in this topic

Anyone notice Kerr hawking Coors Light on her hat and her caddy's in the tourney this past weekend? Kinda threw me for a loop. I'm not crazy about it, maybe because I have 14-yr-old girl. I think girls are more impressionable than boys as it relates to celebs (I say this having also raised a boy, now 22). No crusade here, I hope Christie makes as much money as she possibly can during her marketable years but I do wish she had made a different decision here. Anyone else bothered by this?

Nope, not really. My dad always let me have the first sip of his nightly beer from when I was very young. Not a big deal. I don't hardly drink at all.

Not I.

I think if a 14 year old actively tries to go out and pursue a 6 pack of Coors (highly unlikely) because it was on Christie Kerr's hat...than you have a bit of a rebel on your hands, nothing more.

Look on the bright side...at least she's not promoting Everclear :-P

Why in the world would that bother me?

BTW, I have a 14 year old daughter too......but I don't understand what that has to do with it either.  Sports figures and celebrities endorse products.  Some are appropriate for children to use, and some are not.  It's not the responsibility of the celebrity to teach the kids the difference.  That falls to the parents.

Not a big deal at all. Matt Kuchar endorses Grey Goose.

Interesting, I thought more would raise an eyebrow, as I did. And to be clear, I'm not terribly worried about my kid running down to the packy to grab a six pack and some smokes because she has a strong family, understands right from wrong, etc. Lot's of kids don't have the kind of upbringing mine does, however and therein lies the concern. I still find it a bit questionable. Anyway, good feedback.

Other than the fact that it's crap beer, and you have to drink exactly 42 of them, to get drunk. I see nothing wrong here.

I can personal attest that some 16 year old girls get crazy drunk (or at least fake it very well) on 3 Coors Lights.

Disclaimer: This was a decade ago when I was also in high school.

48 actually, but I'm Canadian which may skew the stats a bit... On a semi-related note, Rolling Rock has recently become a hot item in Canada which blows my mind. Why on earth 3rd rate American beer has become popular amongst Canadians is beyond me.

We used to say that Bud, Rolling Rock, Coors were all beers that were like making love in a canoe. In other words, f^*$#ng near water.

All golfers should revere Rolling Rock because it was created and brewed in Latrobe, PA!  Unfortunately, Budweiser bought it and moved it out. I have a friend whose father and brother were brewmasters there.  They bought the brewery back from Bud and now make craft beer for various customers.  RR was not a bad beer if it was fresh.  It did not travel well IMO.

I thought Christy had better taste than Coors Light.  Awful beer.

Agree. Molson is awful. As is Labatt's. Just putrid stuff around.

    • 1. I remark on PP's good shots, and stay quiet on the bad ones. I don't say "good shot" just because I hear good contact ( the ball may be 40 yards off target). 2. I use my PP's names regularly (especially if just-met)...Dale Carnegie training 'the one sound each and every person loves is the sound of their name" 3. Mark someone's ball, replace a divot, rake a bunker (esp if he's thinned it over the green) 
    • Phil had diarhia  of the mouth yesterday, giving a reason for the poor play of he and tiger in 2004 RC as not being prepared to play and test Tigers golf ball that is "higher spin" versus his low spin ball.  Plausible only with Phil.  4-5 hours??? Puh-lease. I have been involved in 3rd party testing of golf balls and i can actually say that Phil is full of Sh*t here. The overall difference in spin from tour caliber golf balls, rememebr we are going back to to 2004, the diference is insignificant off the driver, from eight iron on down to wedges the spin characteriscs averge out  from one one spinny tour ball to and the next low spin tour ball is less than 5%. in other words a 5000 RPM wedge shot with the higher spin ball would be 4750 RPM at the worst case scenario.  Remember these are 20o3-04 golf balls, the TA and PV1 are just a couple of years old at this point. Phil likes to talk, I get that, I like the guy, but please just shut up about ball spin and admit you ( and tiger) played badly, too much limelight for both is much more plausible. Two thumbs up for Hal  Suttons response too.   In alternate shot, you play with one ball, and that was the issue, Mickelson said. "[Woods] found out the year before when we played at the Presidents Cup in 2003 that the golf ball I was playing was not going to work for him," Mickelson said. "He plays a very high-spin ball and I play a very low-spin ball, and we had to come up in two days with a solution. "So I grabbed a couple dozen of his balls, I went off to the side, and tried to learn his golf ball in a four- or five-hour session on kind of an isolated -- one of the other holes out there trying to find out how far the ball goes. And it forced me to stop my preparation for the tournament, to stop chipping and stop putting and stop sharpening my game and stop learning the golf course, in an effort to crash-course and learn a whole different golf ball that we were going to be playing. "In the history of my career, I have never ball-tested two days prior to a major. I've never done it. It doesn't allow me to play my best. What allows me to play my best is to learn the course, sharpen my touch on the greens, sharpen my chipping out of the rough and ball striking and so forth. "Instead, I'm taking four or five hours and I'm out trying to learn another ball to allow us to play our best. Had we known a month in advance, we might have been able to make it work. I think we probably would have made it work. But we didn't know until two days prior."
    • I played baseball at a big 10 university for 4 years, tennis for 40 years, and learned to play golf at a very young age but did not play frequently in my younger years.  Accordingly, I am athletic and have a decent game for my age group now.  Extremely accurate but not long by any stretch.  When I was 60, I started to take golf seriously (Like most people getting close to retirement age) and really can't complain about my game.  The one thing that took me forever to learn and understand is:  "Feel is NOT real."  What you THINK you are doing is NOT really what you are doing.  So......I would advise any player who wants to improve their game to, have some video taken of your swing and watch it.  You will be amazed.  Your swing will be NOTHING like you think it is.  (LOL) 
    • That's great! Is your season ending too? I'm going to be sad to see it end.   Thanks, everyone! He played well yesterday (tied for 2nd out of 21 players) and today he's playing 2 hours away at the "hardest course in our state", according to his coach. Yikes! 
      After today, he will be practicing for the championship. We're going to go play the course on Sunday. (By we, I mean him and his teammate - with me driving the cart.) ;)
      The tournament is Thursday, so we have a week to get ready. 
      Here's a nice hit from yesterday.
