5 things to talk about on the golf course: Tiger, JoJo, and the latest celebrity couple breakup

August 21, 2015

From sports to TV to politics (OK, so mostly the first two), we offer five hot topics that are sure to liven up your round of golf:

1. Tiger Woods: Let's face it, if you're going to play golf this weekend, you're probably going to talk about Tiger Woods. I went to a driving range on Thursday and four guys were debating the veracity of the rumors of Tiger dating Amanda Dufner. Try keeping it to golf talk because Woods once again got fans excited with an opening 64 at the Wyndham Championship. By the time we're done writing this, he'll probably have shot a 74, but hey, it's something.

2. JoJo: Remember her? The 13-year-old girl who sang really age-inappropriate material, but sang it really well so we all liked her?

OK, so maybe you don't have the same appreciation for JoJo that I have, but after seemingly retiring by 15, she's back with a "tringle" -- three new singles. Of course, they're not as good as her old stuff (what is?), but like with Tiger, perhaps it's a sign she's on the way back to the top.

3. Green and Fox's split: Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox became the latest high-profile couple to divorce. Sad news. Bregan/GreenFox had been married for five years, but an item for 11 going back to when Fox was just 18 and Green was 31. So yes, guys, Megan Fox is finally on the market. Good luck.

4. Robert Griffin III: Three years ago, Griffin was the toast of the NFL as a rookie. Now he's a punch line after claiming earlier this week that he's the best quarterback in the NFL and a punching bag as a quarterback behind a shaky Redskins offensive line. Griffin suffered a concussion in Thursday's pre-season game and now his shaky future is even more in doubt. It's too bad. Sure, it's easy to kick him while he's down, but no athlete is immune to injury and Griffin clearly hasn't been the same since tearing up his knee in the playoffs during that glorious first year. Sadly, that 3 in "RG3" might stand for third-string soon.

5. "Trainwreck": I finally saw this Judd Apatow flick starring Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, and LeBron James (No, seriously). It got a little more serious than I expected and was a little longer than it needed to be, but it was pretty good -- especially the parts involving LeBron. The worst part -- just because it was painful to watch as a Knicks fan -- was the plot line involving Bill Hader repairing Amare Stoudemire's knee and him making a triumphant return to the Knicks. Sadly, that's when you know this isn't a true story.
