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 am just over 40 and I used to be quite athletic (2nd league pro in another sport). Besides my humble brag here, I feel the athletic stance and have the 4-5 hour cardio and mental focus - however my putting and driver technique cause me at around 10 extra strokes together. Yeah, I basically break 90 now: - OB driver shots, and barely over 200 yards - Above average iron shots (short and long) - making up for my driver; quite accurate and distances are by the book - 3-4 putts (messing up my score)
    • Thank you for the stats chart, that's worth gold! Yes, I have a golf coach and I keep a hand-written log in my scorebook. I am embarrassingly bad at putting (3-4) and my driver shot is not accurate and the distance is well below my age. However, my iron game is above average in terms of full swing mechanics, distance and accuracy - that was pretty much the only thing I practiced until I met my coach. The goal is to reduce by 5 putts in the short term. Thank you for your feedback. Yeah, Iooks like if I improve my putting and driving (among other aspects) to the same level as my iron skills I could be a more consistent 90s player. Come on! The putting struggle is real and tracked in my book.
    • Good luck! Let's ping each other by the end of the year again. I see that you that you also worked on your putting and short game. Good to have stretch-goals.  My golf coach guides me. Before I met him I practiced my iron game so much and completely neglected putting over that period. Genuinely, my iron game is quite accurate and the iron (short, long) distances I shoot are above average. However, I often end up doing 3-4 putts and my driver shot goes barely over 200 yards and is not accurate either. If I can shave some off those putts that could be 5-7 strokes right there.
    • Ugh. And I thought I was having a bad year. 
    • That's a lot of clubface rotation (and not much body rotation) through the shot. Tends to lead to…
