Joel Dahmen—and CC Sabathia—really got a kick out of being mistakenly introduced as Harris English

February 09, 2022

If it seems like we do a weekly pre-tournament Joel Dahmen/Geno Bonnalie post, well, that's because we do. This player/caddie combo is a content machine. Even when they're just minding their own business.

Such was the case during Wednesday's pro-am at the Waste Management Phoenix Open when these two got to the famed 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale. An announcer gave Dahmen quite a spirited introduction, but there was just one problem: He thought he was Harris English.

Check it out as the guy goes through a list of accomplishments that have nothing to do with Dahmen, who seemed to get a real kick out of the mistake alongside former Cy Young winner CC Sabathia:

Joel can now sympathize with Hudson Swafford. The best is the "Mr. Bulldog himself!" line for the Washington Husky.

To the starter's credit, it was a good intro for English. And Dahmen isn't listed on the official pro-am pairings, while the actual Georgia Bulldog was slated to play with Sabathia. Sorry, make that Mr. Bulldog, although Stetson Bennett IV might have something to say about that. And this could all be a setup like we suspect the "Bruce Koepka" intro at Torrey Pines a couple weeks ago was.

Anyway, there are much worse guys to be mistaken for than a Ryder Cupper with four PGA Tour titles. And unlike that shuttle driver in Hawaii a few weeks back, at least this announcer knew Joel was a tour pro. So that's progress.
