Welcome to this week’s Social Eyes! The big news over the past few days was Davis Love III naming his three wildcard picks.
Matt Kuchar stole the show, having media in hysterics by suggesting Tiger Woods would be the final captain’s pick - but was he really prank called by Jordan Spieth during the press conference?

If you look in the top left corner, you'll see a call from 'jordan speith', spelled incorrectly. Was it him? It's unlikely, but hats off for the attempted prank!
Now Bryson DeChambeau earned his PGA Tour card with a play-off win at the DAP Championship on the Web.com Tour.
However, he didn’t do it playing quick golf. PGA Tour player Graham DeLaet, DeChambeau’s fellow Cobra/Puma man, called him out for his slow play in comparison to Andres Gonzales – who was also in that play-off.
Bryson 4 minutes to hit shot from middle of fairway, Dre 4 seconds from the cabbage. Come on buddy.— Graham DeLaet (@GrahamDeLaet) September 11, 2016
Problem with slow play is college and Jr golfers see guys on tv take forever to hit a shot and think it's normal. It's not, it's painful.— Graham DeLaet (@GrahamDeLaet) September 11, 2016
Guys get fined for slow play but it's not enough of a deterrent to players making millions a year. https://t.co/VWoAvMDI9y— Graham DeLaet (@GrahamDeLaet) September 12, 2016
Remember Anthony Kim? The once prodigious American talent has been spotted again – and this time on a golf course.
But I wouldn’t get your hopes up. If you look at the picture below, Kim is the only one not holding a golf club.
When you win your home Open, things go a little bit wild. Ask Joost Luiten.
And when you tee it up at your home Open, you can do what you like. That includes driving it down the start line at Formula 1 track Monza. Take it away, Edoardo Molinari.
This kid absolutely LOVES golf. Can you tell?
