Jase Robertson, one of the stars of Duck Dynasty, went where few golfers would go recently in an effort to save a stroke or two -- knee deep in a pond.

How far would you go to save a stroke on the golf course?

Duck Dynasty star Jase Robertson would go knee-deep in a swamp... and there's video to prove it:


That's some dedication to your score, but it looks like poor Jase will be taking a penalty for hitting the wrong ball.

Dash Day

Dash Day takes some enthusiastic cuts at the driving range.
Thanks to Jason Day's amazing run of success this summer, we've all gotten to meet his young son, Dash. Not surprisingly, Dash seems to have the same love of the game that has propelled Jason to the top of the golf world.
Ellie Day – Jason's wife and Dash's mom – posted a little video of father and son out on the range, with Jason serving as caddie to Dash, who was working on his iron game. We're not sure he goes through the same pre-swing visualization routine that Jason has perfected, but it doesn't matter – he makes good, solid contact, and his enthusiasm is undeniable.
Given the stories we've all heard about Jason's difficult childhood and adolescence back in Australia, seeing him out on the range with Dash just feels extra special. It's great to know that the Day family will enjoy our great game together for decades to come.
Here's Dash taking some cuts, with some parental commentary in the background:

Supermodel Nina Agdal has been working on her golf game, and it's clearly paying off.
We first noticed that supermodel Nina Agdal was interested in golf late last year, when she began posting social media photos and video of herself out on the course.
Now, we're pleased to report, not only is the Danish darling still playing the game, she's developed a pretty nice swing – at least, judging by the quick video she just posted on Instagram.
"So happy I had some time to take a lesson this weekend," she wrote about her video. "Long way to go but working on it," she concluded, with a thumb's up emoji.
Compared to the swing video she posted eight months ago, she's making tremendous strides – for starters, she looks much more confident over the ball. It's also encouraging to note that she says she took a lesson over the weekend. She, like the rest of us, can get much better with the help of a PGA Professional.
And now we're impressed with her for one more reason: On her earlier swing video, she included the hashtag #2015resolutions. She's obviously sticking with her resolution to get better at golf and, for that, we salute her with a virtual golf clap.
Here's her new swing video, with a couple of older swing videos below. Check 'em out:

Jordan Spieth shared this video of Rickie Fowler playing from the rough at Baltusrol.

What do you do if you miss the cut at The Barclays?

More golf, of course.

So it was for Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler.

Saturday, the pair played Baltusrol in Springfield, N.J. in what Spieth called a "missed cut pillow fight round."

Spieth posted this Instagram video of Fowler digging deep - literally - from a muddy rough.



Missed cut pillow fight round today at Baltusrol but still some good action from @rickiefowler

Baltusrol is the site of the 2016 PGA Championship.

And it's never too early to start practicing.

Brian Harman shot two aces during the final round of The Barclays.

There are those who dream of shooting a single hole-in-one.

Then there is PGA Tour player Brian Harman, who made two -- 12 holes apart -- during Sunday's final round of The Barclays.

After holing out on the 196-yard par-3 third, Harman served up this gem on the 228-yard 14th:





According to the PGA Tour, Harman joins two others who have carded two aces in a single round, most recently by Yusaku Miyazato at Reno in 2006.
