Our Favorite Viral Videos Of 2013

7. The world's cutest golf rapper
We were fortunate to discover Caleb Corsa, aka "Caleb C," in 2013 and quickly dubbed him the world's cutest golf rapper. We're not sure how official that title is, but we dare anyone to argue. Young Mr. C provided us with a trio of fun music videos. Here's his latest and best, "Puttin' 101":
6. Chi Chi takes one in the chi chis
This one involving Chi Chi Rodriguez doubles as the undisputed golf blooper of the year. If Rodriguez tried this a million more times, he'd never pull it off again. Not that he -- or any guy -- would ever want to.
5. Jason Dufner's wedding day video
When we first heard Dufner had a wedding day video, we thought it was too good to be true. Fortunately, we were wrong.
4. Tiger and Arnie rumble
Woods' five wins and four rules run-ins were nearly eclipsed by a slew of new commercials. But this one, involving Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino for Woods' video game, is the best. With EA sports ending their relationship with Woods, we won't see this one air on TV anymore. Thank goodness for YouTube.
3. Phil Mickelson hits cart path shot, gives lesson
The shot was classic Phil, but what he did after was even more memorable. Mickelson got up-and-down from a cart path for birdie at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and then turned his post-round interview into an instructional video. He broke down the shot and even gave directions to Golf Channel producers to pause the clip so that he could better explain things to his audience. What a showman.
2. The shot of the year (At least, in our little world)
Don't remember this one? Golf World senior editor Mike Johnson needed to hole a chip on the final hole to tie his match and tie the Seitz Cup, an annual Ryder Cup-like competition between Golf Digest and Golf World. Spoiler alert: He did. Yours truly videoed it and added an excited, Gus Johnson-esque call usually reserved for Hail Marys that win the Super Bowl. Yet, for some reason, the clip hasn't appeared on SportsCenter yet. C'mon, ESPN, what are you waiting for?!
1. "We buy golf clubs!"
2013 was filled with plenty of commercials with big budgets, but our favorite was one that required no budget at all. Mike Mixson, the owner of Mike's Golf Shop in Chattanooga, Tenn., pointed a camera-phone at himself and basically shouted the phrase "We buy golf clubs!" for about a minute. Brilliant.
