With too much time on our hands of late, our imagination has spawned some strange inter-golfer creations. Welcome to our odd golfing couples
Dustin Johnson / Charley Hoffman
For the first of our odd golfing couples, mix golf’s increasingly frequent Major nearly man with the former straggly-haired one to create Rain Man. “I’m an excellent driver.”
Find out how to become a more excellent driver by watching Gary Smith’s video…
Gary Player / Craig Barlow
Mix the ever-young near-80-year-old South African with one long-time PGA Tour journeyman to create a revived boy band crooner. Take That!
Daniel Willett / Jason Day / Tom Lewis
The full Christian name of one of 2015’s most in-form players, another Major champion in waiting, and the yet-to-fully-blossom Englishman form the perfect ingredients for one slightly eccentric British actor
Richard S Johnson \ Johnson Wagner
Perhaps our cleverest tie-up with a pair of PGA Tour winners merging seamlessly into the great German composer.
Anthony Kim / Paul Azinger
The surnames of mysteriously absent Anthony and 2008 winning Ryder Cup captain Paul so nearly combine to produce the famous ‘9½ Weeks’ actress that who are we to worry about the odd letter or two?
Bart Bryant / Scott Simpson
This moustachioed duo together give birth to a mischievous yellow cartoon character.
Anton Haig / Bill Rogers
One for the older folks this! But for a missing ‘d’ in the surname, the young South African and the 1981 Open Champion make up the late star of 1990s TV sit-com, May to December.
Woody Austin / Delroy Cambridge
Okay not a person, but the floral-shirted one who once broke his putter over his head and the five-time European Senior Tour winner from Jamaica make up the popular car of the 1950s and 1960s.
Jack Nicklaus / Beth Daniel
The Golden Bear and the LPGA stalwart, who won 33 times on tour, make the perfect Tennessee Whiskey blend (give or take the odd ‘s’)
Ken Ferrie / Stephen Dodd
Add one Geordie to one Welshman, mix with a tickling stick, and hey presto – a frizzy-haired Liverpudlian. Tattyfilarious!
