Oh My God! Golf.com steals sacrilegious story idea from BadGolfer.com!
When my colleague and brother-from-another-mother Brandon Tucker wrote me recently about Golf.com’s Senior Editor Michael Walker Jr. blatantly stealing my “God comes back to Earth to play golf against Tiger Woods” idea that I had used so effectively nearly a year ago at BadGolfer.com, I had two thoughts: One, imitation is the greatest form of flattery, and two, I’m sure it’s nowhere as good as mine.
On the former, there’s no way Walker Jr., would give me credit for the idea. The mainstream golf writing world has no real use for me, you see. I’m too “in your face,” and “radical,” and “extreme,” and “stupid” for them to even mention. But the simple fact is this: very few of them can carry my jock when it comes to any type of golf writing. But then again, maybe the average golf reader isn’t really ready for me anyway. Because anyone who thinks David Feherty is cutting-edge funny will barely understand a word I write.
On the latter, after reading his article “Tiger beats God in friendly golf match,” I believe I’m pretty correct in my thought that the Senior Editor of some big corporate golf empire couldn’t bring the sacrilege like I could.
How good was my BadGolfer.com piece, titled “It might take divine intervention to make the PGA Tour competitive again?” Let reader Kelly tell you:
Best golf “what if ” I have ever read(still laughing!). BUT - As much as God loves the game of golf, it would appear at times that HE’s actually the one working through Tiger, for reasons we’ll never understand. I’ll even go as far as to say HE’ll stay n’ play (in any given event) clear up until Tiger curses HIS name. If Tiger can stop doing that, his win average will double. Seriously though, this is my favorite piece; keep em’ coming!
Why thank you, Kelly.
But this brings me back to Walker Jr. Now, I don’t expect to be hearing from him regarding this, as I’m sure he’ll be much too busy being a big shot and then hitting on girls with lines like, “Hey, I’m Senior Editor of Golf.com, want to go for a drive? Get it?”
But I think he knows the truth. My voyage into sacrilegious golf writing was a slice of heaven compared to his. And I didn’t even end mine with a drug reference (kids, seriously, don’t do drugs. I know it’s hard when big shots like Golf.com Senior Editor Michael Walker Jr. glamorize it, but just say no.)
But anyway, feel free to check and compare for yourself. Mine even has a twist ending that will knock your socks off. You can find mine by clicking here, and Walker Jr.’s by clicking here. I think you’ll see the truth - that I can out-sacrilege any of these big-shot golf writers any day of the week. Except on the Sabbath. Everyone needs a day off.

Yeah, I've been doing a lot of navel-gazing recently, so I imagine that's the end result. In fact, my next post will likely be solely about my navel. Not sure how I'll fit golf into it, but I'll come up with something.
I also thought the "weed" reference at the end of Golf.com's column was a low brow page out of Carlos Mencia's book.
