Rory & Phil Live Music Video in Abu Dhabi
By Torleif Sorenson on 1/16/14

If golfers like Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy are reduced to appearing in such a monumentally cringe-inducing stage spectacle in order to get their appearance money, they should just stay home from now on.

Between the attention-craving organizers in white, Phil dropping his putter, the women in red tossing their hair around out-of-sync, and the rocket scientist trying to choreograph the whole charade on the fly, I'm not sure what is worse. But like witnessing a five-car pile-up on the freeway, you just can't not watch it at least once.

What's really sad is that the organizers obviously intended for us to be impressed by the spectacle.

H-T (or blame for publicizing): Shackelford

Watch an interesting (or less gobsmacking) golf video? Tip your editor!

And if I were a Chrysler Corporation attorney, I might think about a logo-infringement lawsuit — check out the clubhouse, which otherwise looks like an airport passenger terminal.

I made it thru 40 seconds and paused it…. That's enough.

I am disappointed that Rory and Phil did not hold hands in a friendly, non-romantic way, and act that is customary between two men in that part of the world. Typical uptight westerners. When in Rome, fellows.
