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.

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.

Phil Mickelson faces away from the hole for this backwards flop.

It wouldn't be a PGA Tour event without Phil Mickelson performing some sort of magic.

And that was the case again Saturday during the third round of the Barclays at Plainfield Country Club in Edison, N.J.

Faced with a shot in a deep swale, Lefty decided to pull out the old standby -- the backwards flop:

 

 

 

Well, sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. Mickelson resorted to a more conventional shot to reach the green, and converted the up-and-down.

Just another routine par for Mickelson. Ho hum.

Watch: Phil's backwards shot ... is a flop

Matteo Manassero tees it up on the Monza starting grid.

Matteo Manassero posted an intriguing photo on his Twitter account Saturday.

He's shown driving a golf ball on the front straightaway at the famed Monza race course, where a different kind of "driving" takes place.

Here's the tweet:

 

 

In case you're wondering what it says in English, according to the accompanying translation: "A very special experience after a day of practice to the @Autodromo_Monza grid @ItalianOpen!"

Just like auto racing, keeping it straight and between the fences is pretty much the object in golf. However, golfers would rather wind up in the short grass for their next shot, while Formula 1 racers would rather keep all four wheels on the pavement, if possible.
