HONG KONG OPEN: Justin Rose emerges as winner

So in his hotel room, he took to social media to show off his skills as a golf analyst. It's a pretty funny little video he posted to his Instagram account:

Jacques Kruyswijk prepares to hit a shot that hits back.
Poor Jacques Kruyswijk.
Playing in a recent Sunshine Tour event in South Africa, Kruyswijk's ball lodged right next to a tree stump. Unfortunately, when Kruyswijk tried to advance it from that spot, this happened instead:



The golf ball hit back, and not in a good way at all. Adding insult to injury, that's a one-stroke penalty, meaning Kruyswijk eventually carded a 7 on the hole.

That's truly hitting below the belt.

Thankfully for all involved, Kruyswijk was able to get up and continue his round.

The newest entry into the Bond family of films doesn't premiere for the general public until Nov. 7.

But Tiger Woods is already giving the movie props.

He sent out this review of "Spectre," which has Daniel Craig returning as 007.



Woods is currently recovering from a second back surgery after doctors discovered a fragmented disc pinching a nerve.



Woods told the Associated Press he expects the rehabilitation process to be a long one.

"The last one, it took me awhile to get back. Some players on tour have done the same procedure and to be back pain-free it took them over a year," he said.

Woods had been scheduled to play with Matt Kuchar in Mexico City for an exhibition event.

But the unplanned surgery forced a withdrawal from play.

Alex Cejka earned a double circle after acing the 17th at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.

Alex Cejka was at 7-under when he stepped onto the tee box on No. 17 Saturday at the Shriners Hospitals Open.

A 212-yard par-3 gem with a water hazard to the left of the green?

Not a problem for the 44-year-old from Germany.



He would follow the ace with a birdie at 18 to put him at 5-under on the day and 10-under for the tournament.

Cejka turned pro in 1989 and has one PGA Tour victory - the 2015 Puerto Rico Open in March.


The Ole Miss golf teams showed their skills on the football field in Oxford, Miss.

It was all about that golf at the Ole Miss football stadium this week.

The men's and women's teams were taking part in a trick shot challenge against rival Texas A&M.

The football teams meet Saturday night in Oxford, Miss.

But first the home team golfers scored some of their own points on the field.




Could it be the newest hybrid sport?

Folf? Gootball?

Well, maybe not.

Texas A&M's golf teams took to the practice range for their part of the challenge.



Well played golfers.
