Instagram Roundup: All Ages, All Types Going For Clubhead Speed And Topping Out At 137 MPH (Yep)

There seemed to be a Monday theme to Instagram golf posts, or maybe the algorithms are just trying to help me generate more speed.

First off, our little buddy Down Under Sam Blewitt is progressing nicely from his days whapping at ice cubes. And so much hair since we last saw him!

Charlie Reiter is headed to USC next year. If only I could get about 37 miles per hour more I'd catch him in the clubhead speed department. 

@charles_reiter is a beast💪🏾💪🏾

And a bit slower...but the passion is just as strong for the shot outcome...

Not so fast here...and not the outcome I expected.

Tiger Woods saluted veterans while taking in a pre-U.S. Open practice round at Shinnecock Hills.

Paul Broadhurst takes home his second Senior major title, gets the oldest and best trophy in senior golf and gets to show off his wrist tape tan line.

Cameron Davis takes home the most creative trophy of the week for winning the Tour's Nashville Open. I suppose a steel guitar wouldn't have quite worked the same.

Instagram: Hammer And Barber Win The Four-Ball, BMW PGA Laughs, The King At Colonial, Blooming Gorse At Nairn, French Bulldogs And Golf Balls

Cole Hammer and Garrett Barber won the U.S Amateur Four-Ball Championship at Jupiter Hills, for those asking why the USGA didn't ID them in various social postings.

Here is the moment where European Tour Chief Keith Pelley finally was able to explain to Haotong Li how the GolfSixes format works. We all can relate to Li grasping at the Chief Executive's logic. The BMW PGA starts Thursday from Wentworth.

The King wins at Colonial, a fun PGA Tour posted flashback. I think we all could have done without the #liveunderpar hashtag, except the ad geniuses whose job depends on counting up the impressions for failing, almost shockingly awkward ad campaign gone wrong.

Ariya Jutanagarn returns to the winner's circle a month after her sister's victory, taking the LPGA's Kingsmill Championship and a fantastic salad-making bowl.

Adrian Otaegui earned a converted periscope for winning the European Tour's Belgian Knockout.

Michael Arnaud was the last player into the Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am, reeled off two incredible stretches of golf and hoists...a steering wheel!

Miguel Angel Jimenez earned himself a Claret Jug knockoff found at an antique shop and given to the winner of the Regions Tradition.

Players Instagram Special: Who Showed And Who Didn't For Furyk's Ryder Cup BBQ, Pageantry At 17, LPGA Players At The Players, Ponte Vedra Inn's 17th

Hmmm...the Masters Champ, Captain America, had something better to do than attend the Ryder Cup bonding dinner at Captain Jim Furyk's house. Looks like some of the guys wore their very best t-shirts to impress the Captain!

Tuesday's concert and military appreciation day...

Some fine LPGA players spent the day at the Players, posed for photos with their male peers and took a blimp ride above TPC Sawgrass.

I stopped by Ponte Vedra Inn and marveled at Herbert Strong's 17th hole.

At El Caballero Country Club, Colorado State golfers Katrina Prendergast, 20 and Ellen Secor, 20, were 2-down with five to play before defeating Lei Ye, 16, of the People’s Republic of China, and Yachun Chang, 17, of Chinese Taipei, 1 up.

The 9th at Pine Valley has seen the old "skyline green" effect restored after decades of framing by trees.

Tiger has new irons he's helped design in the bag for the Wells Fargo. Woods took the irons out Tuesday for a practice round with Davis Love and looked sharp, reports Golfweek's Dan Kilbridge.

Rory's feeling bullish about his swing, and why shouldn't he be when you swing like he does? 

Looking forward to getting going this week @wellsfargogolf

Paige Spiranac presented our nation's leaders with this reminder of how much golfers spend, also noted in this Golfweek item. This is something our fine leaders have rewarded in the We Are Golf era by going after tax breaks for golf courses as green spaces, nearly revoking the PGA Tour and PGA of America's tax exempt status, and coming this year, eliminating entertainment deductions that could wildly impact the industry. So it's hard to fathom why National Golf Day marches on, but it does...

Weekend Instagram Roundup: Landry Looks Good In Boots, Kid Rock Goes Kite, Ariya Cries More Than Moriya, Sand Valley On Earth Day

Andrew Landry's Valero Texas Open win was an emotional one for his family, who've saw him come close to winning earlier this year and have witnessed no shortage of struggles, Mike McAllister writes for

Also impressive of Andrew to take a few minutes away from his celebration to piece together a #LiveUnderPar graphic and image to make for Tweet No. 70 from his account. These Guys Are Good!

The winner's boots will definitely look better with a pair of jeans...

A moment that lasts long after the raise of a trophy. 🏆 #LiveUnderPar

Moriya Jutanagarn wasn't near as emotional as her sister upon winning the inaugural Hugel-JTBC L.A. Open with a strong final round that required holding off the almighty Inbee Park.

Kid Rock sports some retro glasses and displayed way more than anyone wanted to see of his mid-section during the Bass Pro Shops Pro-Am and Rain Dance. 

Kid Rock’s glasses come straight from the Tom Kite collection.

It seemed like no one could hit a decent putt Sunday at Harbour Town--I blame the early wake up call to get play in before storms--but Satoshi Kodaira made a beauty on the third hole of sudden death for his first PGA Tour win. He had never finished better than 28th in limited PGA Tour play. That 28th was at last week's Masters, so of course we should have seen this coming.
