WGC-Mexico Championship

It's in the... HOOOOOOOLE! Does it get any better than Mexican soccer broadcasters calling golf?

The ladies and gentlemen of Mexico love their soccer... make that, "fútbol."

Even if you're not a huge fan of the sport, surely you're familiar with how excited the Mexican broadcasters get when they see a goal, right?

Something like this:

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if those same announcers covered golf? The late Robin Williams did when he performed his classic, NSFW golf bit years ago.

Said Williams: "I want the guy who does Mexican soccer to do golf one time: The ball is going... The ball is going to the... HOOOOOOOOOOOLE!"

Fast forward to the 3:07 mark:

Well, wonder no more what it would be like.

With the PGA Tour in Mexico City this week for the WGC-Mexico Championship, fútbol broadcasters Antonio Rosiques and Carlos Guerrero were on hand during a practice round to offer their unique commentary... and it didn't disappoint:

I'm all for one tournament per year with commentary like that. Imagine these guys on the par-3 16th at Augusta National on the Sunday of the Masters?

Wow.

In February, a Florida man used his Cleveland putter to escape the jaws of an alligator. Just recently, Srixon/Cleveland hooked the man up with a new set of clubs, including some sweet, custom wedges.

Last month, we relayed the story about a Florida man named Tony Aarts, who made news when he used his Cleveland Golf putter to fight off a 10-foot alligator that had dragged him into a pond by his right foot.

Aarts -- in Chubbs Peterson style -- hit the gator in its eye socket until the beast let go.

Thankfully, Aarts was able to walk away from the life-threatening ordeal without any serious injuries.

The folks at Srixon/Cleveland Golf took notice of what Aarts did and surprised him at the same course where the encounter took place -- Magnolia Landing Golf & Country Club in North Fort Myers, Fla. -- recently to present him with a new set of golf clubs, which included these awesome, personalized wedges:

Good on Srixon/Cleveland.

Here's to hoping Aarts is chasing only birdies and eagles with the new sticks.
