Video: Kuchar-Woods, Fresh Prince Handshake Digital, who went to Columbia J-School so he could be called upon when wants to post an edgy item--a.k.a. unauthorized YouTube video--gets the job of explaining Tiger and Matt Kuchar's post-birdie high-five from Day One of the Presidents Cup.

Digital also links to a former video of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. So for those of you keeping track at home, that's two copyright violations in one. Even though both shows aired on the network employing Mr. Digital. You go, Ty!

Check out Mr. Digital's explanation from Kuchar on the five. The videos are included below just in case the Ponte Vedra red phone convinces Mr. Digital of the copyright sins he has committed and the videos disappear.

Oh, and add this episode to Exhibit 31B, Why the Presidents Cup Isn't The Ryder Cup And That's Just Fine: Players Having Fun.

The clip of the high-five, or whatever it's called.

Kuchar also gave him a tap on the butt with his putter at the end of the clip, ah la Phil and Keegan at the Ryder cup.

That should energize Tiger

Where's the face paint and ribbons?

Going by agency-principal relationship, if Mr. Digital is agent and NBC/GC principal, how is this copyright infringement?

The Fresh Prince move is dumb but harmless, much like You Can't See Me of Solheim fame. It doesn't impact any protected class so it's got that goin' for them. Now if we could only see Shark and Commissioner do this FPrince handshake together, that would be news.

Besides the "thats always how its been done" or "it works just fine as is" arguments, can anyone say that the "innovations/improvements that the President's Cup has implemented are not superior to the Ryder Cup:

1. 4 days instead of 3
2. All guys play every day except on Saturday. I
3. The matched up draw
4. No built in advantage to the current cup holder.

I think all of them create a better competition and are upgrades over the Ryder model.

Too bad Tiger wasn't paired with Spieth, or it might have been twerk-central out there.

This event is ridiculous.,Time to have a three team Ryder cup

Seeing a slow-motion replay of that high-five / handshake thing they did caused me to puke a little. Tiger needs a new PR firm to come up with the little ways for him to get back into the public's favor. The ideas his current firm are coming up with are very bad.

Lighten up, people. These events are silly exhibitions. The players want to win because they are competitive, but that's about it. Let them have fun.

@PA - Really? You'd rather claim Kuchar is a fibber that it was his idea just so you can slam Tiger. Glad your not my press agent.

Right on!
Let them have fun. More enjoyable to see them relaxed.

Brian S the innovations/improvements that the President's Cup has implemented are not superior to the Ryder Cup.

Handshake got too much airtime and blogtime, retired today. Hicks disappointed.
Pretty sad when this gets more coverage than the golf itself.
10.4.2013 | Unregistered CommenterEasingwold
So @ Stiggy, what don't you like:

Blind draws are better than a live draw that includes strategy ?

You pick the top 12 out of over 100 players for each team, then you have to sit 1/3 of them for each session besides singles ?

3 days of a great event vs 4 days ?
10.4.2013 | Unregistered CommenterBrianS
Brian S - Yes
