Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



The Loop

The guy in this commercial clearly just topped his drive

December 15, 2014

If you watched the PNC Father-Son Challenge last weekend, you probably saw this commercial from Oppenheimer Funds. The ad said everything you'd expect from a well-respected investment bank, but golf nuts everywhere couldn't help but notice something a little strange: About five seconds through, a man with a slightly steep swings seems to top his drive.

@LukeKerrDineen haha - absolutely. Hilarious! They obviously went with the first take - no mulligan.

@LukeKerrDineen saw that yesterday. A divot with his driver
