For the second consecutive year, Gary Player was left out of Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman's spring break plans.

As you may have seen on social media Tuesday, the band -- Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman -- has gotten back together for Spring Break 2017 in the Bahamas, or, as they've hashtagged it "#SB2K17."

Thankfully for all of us, the boys are sharing their shenanigans with the world. Remember this incredible impression of David Feherty by Spieth last year?

Apparently, Gary "Blue, you're my boy!" Player's invitation got lost in the mail again this year.

Player shared his disappointment in a post on Twitter that was absolutely fantastic.

How good is that from the Black Knight?

Charley Hoffman opened the door for loads of the game's biggest names with a crushing double bogey on the 16th hole in the third round of the Masters.

Charley Hoffman had been in control of the 81st Masters for most of the week, the table set by his amazing 7-under 65 which was the best score of the blustery first round by four shots.

That all changed on the par-3 16th hole in Saturday's third round. He led by a shot at 6 under when he reached the tee.

When he walked off, Hoffman trailed by a shot, making double bogey on the hole when his tee shot found the water:

That right there was the only water ball of the day at the 16th. And what terrible timing for Hoffman.

That opened up a can of worms for some of the biggest names in golf -- Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth, in particular -- who were just waiting for Hoffman to make a blunder.

When the third round ended, Hoffman's even-par 72 left him at 4 under and two shots out of the lead going into what is sure to be an epic final day of the 2017 Masters.
