No one (sweet) talks to his golf balls like this tour pro

January 11, 2018

Golfers all over the world talk to their golf balls on the course. Just usually, not very kindly. Instead, there's a lot of shouting demands and plenty of begging (We're looking at you, Jordan Spieth). But one tour pro takes a different, more delicate approach.

Introducing Mexican tour pro Jose de Jesus Rodriguez, a rookie on the Web.com Tour in 2018 after being the leading money on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica last year. Jose doesn't just talk to his golf balls, he sweet talks them, gently coaxing these spheres to do as he pleases through friendly conversation and flattery. Check out this funny video:

Hey, whatever works.
