17. European Tour goes "Happy Gilmore"
It's surprising that the golf world had to wait this long for a well-done video incorporating Adam Sandler's unorthodox swing in the movie "Happy Gilmore." Better late than never. Two surprises from the clip? Padraig Harrington hitting a ball 328 yards and Phil Mickelson not coming close to pulling off this trick shot.
16. James Hahn celebrates "Gangnam Style"
Jame's Hahn's surprisingly good version of Korean rapper Psy's "Gangnam Style" dance is just another example of why TPC Scottsdale's 16th hole is awesome. And while the PGA Tour has banned the famed caddie races that go on there during the Phoenix Open, Tim Finchem can't ban dancing. Wait, can he? We hope not. . .
15. We're going streaking!
The pictures of Presidents Cup streaker Kimberly Webster drew most of the attention, but the video was pretty good since it gave us a sense of her quickness. And yes, this would be much higher up on the list if the clip was better quality. Obviously.
14. Villanova's golf team gets creative
We still don't get what the "Harlem Shake" is, but we can still enjoy this. We'll give these college boys an 'A' in creative skills. Their parents will be so proud!
13. Tiger and Charlie
Woods' most impressive victory of 2013 -- a seven-shot drubbing at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational -- also provided us with his most candid moment of the season. After finishing his final hole, Woods carried his four-year-old son, Charlie, who saw his father win for the first time. Awwww.
12. Sergio Garcia climbs a tree to hit a shot
Before Garcia was embroiled in controversy over his "fried chicken" remarks at Tiger Woods, he took creative shot-making to a whole other level.
11. Romain Bechu's tricks
If superstar magician David Blaine got into golf, we'd picture his practice routine looking something like this:
10. Arnie and Kate
Yes, this is one of our own, but c'mon! It's Kate Upton giving Arnold Palmer a putting lesson!
9. John Daly hits a golf ball out of a guy's mouth in a dark Nashville parking lot
Need we say anymore?
8. Tiger Woods vs. Rory McIlroy
Before Rory took on a robot (and his former management company among other legal battles in a rough 2013), he faced off with Tiger Woods in an "anything you can do, I can do better," Nike ad that became an instant classic. The official video has more than 10 million views on YouTube.
