Former KU golfer Gary Woodland makes a big splash at Phoenix Open without even picking up a club
If you've been paying any kind of attention at all during the past 5 or so years, you surely know by now that former Kansas golfer Gary Woodland currently is one of the best players in the world and that he also was a heck of a basketball player back at Washburn before transferring to KU.
But there's so much more to Woodland, one of Kansas basketball's most famous fans, than monster tee shots, birdie putts and pristine scorecards.
This week, the PGA Tour captured some of that magic from the player currently ranked 3rd in the FedEx Cup standings in a short video posted on the PGA web site and on Twitter. And Woodland did not even have to pick up a club to make it all happen.
The moment took place in Phoenix at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, where Woodland and fellow pro Matt Kuchar welcomed "Amy" to join them on the famed 16th hole for a little fun and the memory of a lifetime.
The rest is in the video, which currently has 1.86 million views and counting, and is a wonderful look at how golf can bring together people from all walks of life.
