And he wants to spot him two strokes a side. This is bold, but I’m most impressed that he’s able to kick a football so well with 100 pounds of pure testicle slapping against his thighs.
Josh Scobee, the Jacksonville Jaguars’ veteran place kicker, is putting the screws to Tiger. He proposed a bet to him via Twitter yesterday: a round of golf at San Jose Country Club for $100,000 a hole. Tiger gets two strokes a side.
Tiger- meet me at San Jose Country Club tomorrow, $100,000 a hole. You get 2 a side.

I love this move, but I also hate this move.
I love it because challenging the former number one golfer in the world to his game for such a huge sum of money, as a fucking kicker, is a big, big move. You just kind of have to respect the audacity. Plus, Tiger is an arrogant son of a bitch and it’s hard to feel bad for him, even if he currently has the yips. Also, that’s a LOT of money. I had no idea NFL kickers were paid so much (Scobee made over $4 million in 2014), but the potential to lose $1.8 million in four hours is a dick-on-the-table proposition if I’ve ever seen one.
I hate this move because it’s cheap. When someone publicly proposes something of this nature to a famous person, you’re putting that person in a lose-lose. Scobee knows this. He knows Tiger will look weak if he doesn’t accept, but he also knows Tiger would never take this bet. He has nothing to gain from it, relatively speaking. Similar to when these high school geeks make a YouTube video with the purpose of asking a supermodel to prom, there’s no winning for that supermodel. She either declines and appears heartless, or she sucks it up and does something she doesn’t want to do.
What we all really want is for Tiger to start lining up and knocking down prostitutes again so his swing comes back..
