It’s that time of the year again.
Families are gathering around the table, giving thanks and stuffing their faces full while watching football on TV.
However, some folks may make their way to a golf course, scratching that itch that simply won’t go away. Although the professional golf world across the United States is quiet on Thanksgiving, that doesn’t mean golf can’t be a part of the holiday season.
That got us thinking: which golfers are most like certain Thanksgiving dishes? As we try to have a little fun and not take things so seriously heading into the holidays, here’s what we came up with: (A reminder — this is for fun.)
Of course, we begin with Spieth as the turkey. Because when it’s done right, it’s perfection. When it’s not, it’s going to be a hot mess.
An interesting creature, and an interesting golfer. The exchanges with his caddie. His bucket hat. The self-deprecation. Does Dahmen roll around in the mud? Maybe. But, he did say at the RSM Classic one of his keys to success was not being an idiot. Either way. Dahmen is a ham. A ham is Dahmen.
When it comes to mashing the ball off the tee, no one hits it quite like Rory. But no one can forget this legendary clip, either.
Gravy is a big fan favorite and can add flavor to any dish. Korda, the World No. 1, is one of the faces of the LPGA and makes every leaderboard better when she’s on it.
Tiger is green bean casserole because it’s the best side dish, even if people are unwilling to admit it. GBC fans are also not ashamed to showcase their loyalty to this dish, and have you ever met a casual Big Cat fan?
When it comes to stuffing the ball in tight, Kim knows a thing about hitting shots close to the hole. It’s a big reason why he has won twice in the second half of 2022.
Mac and cheese may not be a traditional Thanksgiving dish. Similar to Choi and Furyk’s swings, it’s a bit unorthodox and can look funky, but it certainly gets the job done.
A putting stroke as smooth as butter, Ko rolls the rock with the best of them. It’s why she cashed a big check last weekend.
Pumpkin pie is a lot like Koepka. Only shows up at certain weeks of the year and is often hard to find the rest of the time.
OK, this isn’t a Thanksgiving dish, but there’s always the one family member who’s at every gathering during the holidays, right? The one who keeps things slightly on edge — you have no idea what they’re going to say or do, but that means you can’t look away and have to keep an ear out for whatever comes next.
