Golfer Pulls a “Caddyshack” Putt and Makes the U.S. Open
I love this! Caddyshack is from my generation and still nothing to this day, in my opinion, even comes close to Caddy Shack and Animal House. Just recently, a golfer pulled a “Caddyshack” putt and made it into the US Open.
Dennis Miller is a 42-year-old Ohio club pro with 11 failed attempts to make the U.S. Open field — and he didn’t even see the putt that got him through sectional qualifying this year fall into the cup. That’s because his curling 20-footer — on the fourth playoff hole — hung on the lip for a full five seconds before tumbling in, giving Miller plenty of time to give up on it before the “Caddyshack”-style ending. “Before I left home … I decided to put my old putter, a 25-year-old Maxfli Tad Moore, into my bag,” he said. “I won’t be without it from here on.”
Take a look yourself and Dennis’ putt, and the closing scene of Caddyshack with the explosions, the gopher, Chevy Chase, Dangerfield and the rest. It still makes me laugh.
