Anyone for Ping-Pong?
By mustang6560 on 3/2/11
Anyone catch highlights of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson playing ping-pong after the Ryder Cup and wished they could see more off the course competition between some of their favorite goflers?

Well, heard your cry for more. The online website is hosting a ping-pong tournament that should feature some of golf's big names and it will broadcasted live from their website. The tournament will be played from Steve Marino's home.
The ping-pong tournament, played after the second round of the Honda Classic, will be carried by, a new website featuring PGA Tour Professionals, in association with Vumanity Media Inc. (, a cutting-edge technology that produces quality video content more quickly and efficiently than before. Marino is one of the tour players who are co-owners of ( The show will air live on from from 8 PM until 10 PM.

. . . is a company majority-owned by PGA Tour players. The founding partners are Luke Donald, Paul Casey. Justin Rose, Camilo Villegas, Vijay Singh, Steve Marino, Ryuji Imada and Bo Van Pelt.
Twitter and Facebook allow fans into the lives of their favorite athletes and celebrities, but there is still limitations to this. What is trying to do is truly let fans in to see how these guys act off the turf. The website touts that it's "Where the pros hang out". And I guess it's true, or at least it will be Friday night.

The only problem is it's from 8-10PM Friday night. I'm not sure how many fans will give up their Friday night to stay home and watch a computer screen. If it was during the day I'd be more inclined to follow.

Clearly you're single and/or without kids to make a statement this ridiculous. What else would we be doing on a Friday night!?

Who am I kidding? I'll at least check it out for a little bit Friday night :)

@bducharm- what I was trying to say is that only a single person or person without kids would actually have plans on a friday night. What is "normal" for those people (going out on weekends) for those with kids is an exception. of course i can watch ping pong- because what else would i be doing BUT be at home in front of my computer. that was my point- not sure if it was made clear. i'm sure nathan has hot and wild plans.
