JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee found out Thursday that a sense of humor and Twitter don't mix.

Scobee jokingly challenged Tiger Woods on Twitter to a skins match at San Jose Country Club in Jacksonville -- for $100,000 a hole -- and offered to give him two strokes a side.

Tiger- meet me at San Jose Country Club tomorrow, $100,000 a hole. You get 2 a side.

6:54 PM - 11 Feb 2015

He didn't tag Woods in the tweet and followed it up with another tweet in which he said he meant to text that to Woods.

$100,000 a hole might get Phil's attention

ESPN article claims Scobee is a +3.  Scobee might be able to take a couple holes.

Stupid question: how does the two strokes a side get allocated in common gambling? Does it go by handicap numbers on the card or is it player's choice?

The strokes are allocated on the 2 lowest hcp holes per side.

....and if I had the cash, I'd back Tiger on this one!

Handicap. You would get a stroke on the #1, 2, 3, and 4 handicap holes. Edit: David beat me to it.

Yeah, playing to a +3 on a country club course is not the same as playing from the tour tips on a PGA tour conditions course. I think it would be hilarious if Tiger showed up, wearing a red shirt, with Joe Lacava on his bag and said he was ready to go.

I think Tiger would win this by a few holes, at least, and then he should donate the money to a worthy cause.

It would be cool if he won and went to a Jags game next year on the sidelines and waved the money at him when he attempted a fg.

Just like everything else with the Jaguars, it would be a losing proposition.

Hahaha, this made me chuckle.

I would have loved to see Tiger take this bet, if he wins, donate the cheese to the TW foundation.

If it happened right now , today, I'd give the kicker a little more of a chance.

I'd have laughed if TW came back with some tweet offering $100k if the Jags win over 4 games in 2015.

A bit of a low blow from Scobee in my opinion. As a professional athlete, he should know not to poke at somebody during a slump.

He's a kicker.  Athlete is a stretch.

Dude. Google Steve Weatherford, haha. I'd call him an athlete. I'd also call him "sir," just to be safe.

It was a joke. :-D

    • I've had the slope feature on my laser devices for at least 5 years, and I basically never turn it on.  Its a simple decision based on the Rules of Golf.  If I can't use the slope calculation when I'm playing in a tournament, I don't want to rely on it when I'm playing for fun.  
    • Actually I do ( did ). I write right handed but throw, bat and golf left handed. I bowl left handed, played tennis right handed, Ping Ping..either hand is fine. When I try a new task or tool...I often have to consciously decide which hand feels better to use.   I think you mean anatomy? If the human body is capable of performing an action, there’s nothing opposite or foreign about it. It may be more difficult than another task, but not foreign or opposite.   The hands are the only part of the body directly connected to the club. We can manipulate the face of the club with our hands independently of the rest of the body. I can stand still and hit hooks or slices while keeping my torso practically still.

    • Juli,    Our dominant hands perform millions of everyday task for us that are in our subconscious mind. We never give them a thought. However, the golf swing is NOT in our subconscious mind . It is a learned conscious task that is totally foreign and opposite to human genetics. If it was NATURAL NBA and NFL and other great PRO athletes would be leading the PGA tour .    Our shoulders ( upper arms ) are the most flexible joints in our body . This enables our dominant HANDS to bring food to our mouths so we could survive as humans and they will ALWAYS roll over, turn down unless we force them / teach them to perform otherwise . The DS only takes 2/10 seconds . Whatever key you choose to use must be  preprogrammed / prepared before you ever pull the shaft back . The human brain can only sort out and perform ONE ( 1 ) task in that short amount of time . So - what is that one thought to be ? Well - their is a direct connection between the brain and it’s dominant hand . The right in your case . It is responsible for dropping the entire lever system down back around behind our torso and to stay right palm upward during the entire DS . If we don’t we definitely know what is going to happen and you can see it on any range in the world . It is the turning of the torso ( inner circle ) that squares the face, not the hands ! Yes - I know this sounds radical and some will say so , but check out * Cortical Homunculus * and see where I am coming from.  thanks for your reply . Good luck
