Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there from the team here at USGolfTV. As generic as it sounds, truly count the many blessings in your life, regardless of where this day finds you.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we decided to take a step back and look at the golf world. What were we thankful for in 2014 golf? Well, the list was a goodie:
Victor Dubuisson and the Emergence of the Desert Escape Artist (Video)
Few knew the same of the Frenchman Dubuisson, but after the most incredible successive up-and-down’s in the history of golf, the golf world learned. The young man is still an enigma, an interesting fellow to say the least, but we’re sure thankful for the spurt of golf he gave us in Februrary… (Link to Dubuisson’s feat)
The Golf Channel gave us a gift in April. In a 3-part series, legendary golfer (and man) Arnold Palmer was chronicled. The steps of his journey and the accomplishments in his career were documented in the series “Arnie.” For that Golf Channel, we are thankful.
Jarrod Lyle and His Recovery from Leukemia
Mr. Lyle is probably more thankful for this than the followers on the PGA Tour, but his story is a remarkable one nonetheless. His pursuit of a PGA Tour card will be documented by media outlets throughout the spring. Full story here.
Want to watch video of a real-life, living, breathing, robot? Well, watch this video as Rory McIlroy goes absolutely off on the putting green.
Jason Dufner and the Funniest Man of Golf
Jason Dufner made an appearance on Funny or Die in his series, “That’s How Duf Does it.” Absolutely hilarious stuff from Dufner, including some homemade nachos and informing other golfers that they suck.
Kevin Streelman Reels off 7 Straight Birdies to Win
Kevin Streelman gave us one of the most memorable stretches of golf all season. At the Travelers, he caught lightning in a bottle and surged to perhaps the best finish in PGA Tour history. Forget the story? Don’t worry— we got you! Click here for Kevin’s Incredible Feat.

Steven Bowditch and Christina Kim‘s Overcoming Depression to Win
Depression doesn’t only affflict the everyday individual, it afflicts professional athletes as well. Bowditch and Kim were great headlines of adversity in 2014. Steven Bowditch story and Christina Kim story.
Jimmy Fallon and His PGA Tour Superlatives
Jimmy Fallon delivered some gems razzing the personalities of the PGA Tour. Want to watch the entire video? Click here.
TJ Oshie and the Funniest 4-Putt You’ll Ever See
It’s old news now, but comical at the time. St. Louis Blues star and Olympic hockey hero T.J. Oshie had a bit of a blunder on live television. Check it out:
The man was attacked by a swarm of insects, dove into the pond and survived to tell about it. Not only did he survive, the made a birdie. Did you see this earlier this year? We’ve got the full story + video here!
“I don’t always make 90-footers, but when I do, I dress like a bumblebee…”
Not a direct quote from the mouth of Tiger Woods, but nonetheless, this putt was absolutely incredible.
David Feherty and Everything He Gives Us on the Golf Channel
The man is a true diamond. He gives us laughs and can evoke tears. We wrote reasons you aren’t David Feherty a month ago. He truly is a unique man. 5 reasons We Love Feherty.
The season for the 2014 golf was a special one. In granted us precious moments as well as memorable feats. There is far more we are thankful come this time of year, even within the game of golf, but we were glad to share a few of our favorite stories.
Thank you for supporting us! Happy Thanksgiving!
