Third Annual oobgolf Awards
By Torleif Sorenson on 12/23/13

Now that we have reached the end of another fun-filled year, it is time to hand out the Third Annual oobgolf Awards. In contrast to the first and second annual awards, we have introduced a few new categories:

The Al Gore 'Gore-bal Warming' Award
The 2013 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship

This year's event, held just outside Tucson, Arizona, was plagued by several inches of snow on Wednesday and Thursday, delaying play in a rather unorthodox manner.

The Always a Bridesmaid Award
Phil Mickelson, for his sixth second-place finish at the U.S. Open.

The Cop Rock Award
PGA Tour

In an utterly bone-headed marketing ploy, the PGA Tour put out a FexEd Cup Playoffs rap video that was so bad, they pulled it from YouTube shortly thereafter. Thankfully, Ryan Ballengee saved the lyrics.

Dishonorable mention: Ben Crane for his ill-advised "Bubble Boy" rap video.

Jessica Korda, for firing caddie Jason Gilroyed in the middle of the third round of the U.S. Women's Open.

The Faceplant Award
Rory McIlroy.

Vijay Singh, for suing the PGA Tour over his use of deer antler spray.

The Jack Hanna Zoology Award
Lindsey Vonn, for introducing Tiger Woods to Sammy the Squirrel in the middle of the Presidents Cup.

The Kevin Costner Waterworld Award
The LPGA, for managing to play the Pure Silk Bahamas Classic over just 12 of 18 holes after 18 inches of rain left much of the course under water.

The 2014 event will be played January 23-26 in an effort to avoid monsoon season.

The Lady Gaga Fashion Award
Billy Horschel, for wearing a ridiculous pair of "octopus" pants during the final round of the U.S. Open at Merion.

The Madonna 'Vogue' Award
Jason Dufner.

"Strike a pose, there's nothing to it..."

The NSFW Award
ESPN The Magazine, for their Body Issue.

The Scott Norwood Award
Steve Stricker, for shanking two shots OB in the final round of the U.S. Open at Merion.

The 2013 U.S. Solheim Cup Team, for their epic Saturday and Sunday collapse.

The Zapruder Film Award
Tiger Woods, for suffering a ball-moving penalty at the BMW in Chicago. The incident led to an acidic column by Brandel Chamblee, which led to a threatened lawsuit, which led the USGA and the R&A to issue Decision 18/4.

"...we'd like to thank the academy..."
