College golfer pulls off baller move, makes eagle, and becomes instant Golf Twitter legend
K.H. Lee isn’t the only golfer going for a three-peat this week. Howard University’s Greg Odom Jr. is in position to make it three in a row at the PGA Works Collegiate Championship. But regardless if he pulls off a come-from-behind victory on Wednesday, he’s already a big winner on Golf Twitter this week.
During Monday’s opening round at Shoal Creek, the senior was feeling so good about his second shot into the par-5 17th that he picked up his golf bag and started walking after it before his golf ball reached its apex. It was an absolute baller move. Oh, and the shot was pretty darn impressive as well. Have a look for yourself:
So smooth. And efficient! Talk about helping with pace of play. Anyway, it certainly caught the attention of six-time PGA Tour winner and Golf Twitter’s King, Max Homa:
Yeah, that’s high praise. And, not surprisingly, the rest of Homa's loyal subjects agreed:
Of course, this type of player reaction shouldn't be too surprising considering Steph Curry is the Howard golf team's benefactor. We've seen the Golden State Warriors star turn and start running back on defense as soon as he releases a shot countless times. (And they almost always go in when he does.)
So in two ways, we owe this moment to the two-time NBA MVP. Thanks, Steph. And thanks, Greg. Do that on the PGA Tour someday and you'll be an even bigger legend.
