These Santa Claus golfers are doing Thanksgiving golf the right way

November 29, 2015

Playing golf on Thanksgiving was made a lot easier this year with warm weather across the country. It was actually warmer in New York City (65 degrees) than Los Angeles (61) on Black Friday. When you mix golf with such a great holiday, it makes Thanksgiving that much better.

A group of bros from Philly tee it up in any weather. They call it the Santa Swingoff, a tradition for every day after Thanksgiving. Costumes are a staple. Drinking is optional. But it's all for charity -- the Phil-Hanna Foundation -- which raises money for late adoptive and birth mothers. This year the group had 40 golfers at Edgmont Country Club in Newtown Square, Pa. Like all Thanksgiving golfers they had fun, but the costumes are pretty outrageous.

And some more costumes. A-plus effort all around.


When you make birdies and you're dressed up as a bird, it becomes a magical moment.
