Video: Colbert Takes On Hack Golf, State Of The Game

Colbert on golf! Finally.

Tip of the cap to Ashley Mayo for the alert on the Colbert Report's "Sports Report" (that's pronounced Spore Repore) where, at the 5:40 mark, Stephen Colbert and friends take on the PGA Show, Hack Golf and efforts to grow the game.

And I think before any golf writer, Colbert and writers actually have perused the crowd sourcing website.

Funny. Robin Williams in my opinion provided the best take on

In many ways, the fact that the PGA of America and Hack Golf are on the Colbert report is proof that they're accomplishing what they intended -- broader recognition and reaching a non-golf audience.

It also points to how much of a star-f#cker Bevacqua is. I'm sure that he is schmoozing with Colbert, or trying to, as he did with Justin Timberlake back in the US Open/Golf Digest Challenge days.

Hard to believe that Ted Bishop has aligned himself so closely with a guy like Mark King. I don't get it?

@Harv, do you have a reason to think that Bishop is less of a d-bag than King (I don't)?
03.27.2014 | Unregistered CommenterCarl Peterson
Well, he's supposed to be representing a lot of hard working professionals. I've read direct quotes from King blasting golf leadership for not coming up with new ideas to "grow the game". Not only does Bishop not stand up for his organization, he appoints King to his new special committee who are supposed to save the game.

The whole hackgolf thing reminds me never to trust anyone over 30.

Aren't you just confirming that they are similar in their d-bag-ness?

Is my memory playing tricks on me, or was Colbert once funny?

I don't know if Bishop is trying to position the PGA of America to supplant the USGA, or maybe just get a kickback from TaylorMade that'll let him keep his bankrupt golf course in Indiana. What I do know is that all Mark King cares about is making more money, and that both men are d-bags in my book.
Did Bevaqua start the US Open Challenge? I liked that. Didn't know that was him.

Yes. Colbert is still funny.

Colbert is very funny.

Why does so many posters like to blast everyone?
Check out this take on the Ted Bishop--Mark King relationship. Probably a bad idea for Bishop to hang out with King. I cannot imagine his people, the men and women of the PGA, go for this.
