Hey there, friends, and welcome to this week’s Rogers Report. I just got back from Orlando, where I was covering the PNC Championships. I wrote about it here, so we won’t be talking about the event in this column, except for the fact that Will McGee, son of Annika Sorenstam, had a special fan in the crowd over the weekend at the event. That’s right: her sixth-grade math teacher headed over to see her current star student.

How useful is this? Anyway, a lot of things happened Abroad At the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club last week, so we have a lot to catch up on.

Rory’s soccer skills

I will be the first to admit that I don’t follow football. However, I do follow golf, and this cross between soccer and golf piqued my interest.

Ram, McIlroy and Laurie can hold their own when it comes to magic! The video reminded me of McIlroy’s soccer injury in 2015, so I went through his Instagram to find a post of him on crutches. Fortunately, I stumbled upon this one too.

I couldn’t help but wonder if there was anything bad about Rory McIlroy. Maybe like swimming? or checkers? Maybe he has bad handwriting? The playing field needs to be leveled a bit here. But let’s not forget it I did He must miss the Open Championship at St Andrews due to a soccer injury.

Then share this graphic post online.

Man, 2015 Instagram was a different time. Players weren’t sponsored social posts to share, and they certainly weren’t posting professional pictures of themselves on the course. It was a beautiful moment in time.

PGA Tour wedding season

Jessica Korda. Mel Reid. Dustin Johnson. Brooks Koepka. Justin Thomas. Colin Morikawa. JT Boston. Seven Pro golf weddings In 2022? Let’s make it 10. Not one, but two PGA Tour players were injured over the weekend and before that, so did Will Zalatoris.

1. Did Zalatoris wedding

Never in all my days have I come to such a dead end regarding Internet spying as I have in searching for information regarding Will Zlatoris‘ wedding. Please don’t mistake me for admitting defeat – I just need more time. What I do know is that Caitlin Sellers She (now Zalatoris) first appeared on Zalatoris’ Instagram page in 2018. She received her master’s degree from the University of Texas in 2019, and the Wake Forest alumnus got engaged in April of 2021. Also, their wedding photos are stunning.

I promise to keep you all posted as this difficult story unfolds.

2. Sungjae Im’s big day

Sungjae Im fouled on Dec. 17, and I’ll admit this came as a bit of a surprise to me because the 24-year-old hadn’t posted a significant other before that. I guess that’s what kids call “hard going” these days. The two got married at the Lotte Hotel World in Seoul.

His comment translates as “Thank you again to everyone who congratulated me. From now on, I will live more and happier. Thank you.” Also, Im seems to have distributed the best wedding gifts ever to his friends at the wedding.

Dedicated to Scotty Cameron? For a wedding? I’ve never heard of such a thing. I used to get gum erasers and pencil erasers to birthday parties when I was a kid. I had no idea how low I was until this very moment.

Seemed like a fun time! But that was only Saturday night. There was another wedding on Sunday…

3. He married Se Woo Kim

Si Woo Kim married fellow professional golfer Ji Hyun Oh on Sunday, and the event looked as elegant as can be.

His comment translates to “December 18, 2022. I promised to spend the rest of my life with the person I want to spend my entire life with. Thank you all for your congratulations. I will live happily ever after.” Boyfriends, fiancés, and spouses are taking this as a sign: Stepping up their Instagram comments game. If those players can do it, so can you.

And if you scroll on this post, you’ll see the happy couple walking down the aisle to “Another Day of Sun” from La La Land. excellent choice.

Taylormade Holiday content

TaylorMade has pretty much earned a permanent spot on Rogers Report thanks to their vacation photo shoots. Let’s take a look at their Halloween and Thanksgiving posts before we get into what they’re up to now.

It’s one thing to come up with these ideas, but it’s another to get the best golfers on the planet to go along with them, which brings us to TaylorMade’s latest photoshoot.

What I would give to be a fly on the wall at one of those. Do they pout for the camera, the way my siblings and I do when it’s time to take a Christmas card? Or are they outdone? I hope there will be a lot of laughter after wearing the costumes. I look forward to some behind-the-scenes content from today.

Tiger advice

Speaking of TaylorMade, they shared a video from this year’s TGR Foundation’s Junior Invitational. There are a lot of gems here, but I really like how he explained how he was working through stress in the beginning. Lost pathways due to nerves? Sometimes professionals are just like us.

Then he told the story of his first ace. He was eight years old and had to lift him up to see him off the tee. I am 27 years old and still waiting for me.

Then Tiger continued counting the number of times he had won. “When I was 11 years old, my life peaked.” He seems to have it all. Girlfriend, great grades, good behavior and an impressive golf resume.

Polina Gretzky’s birthday party

Paulina Gretzky celebrated her 34th birthday over the weekend, and in classic Gretzky-Johnson fashion, no detail was left unattended.

The inside of DJ’s suit jacket was decorated with photos from their wedding, and he led a group of dancers on the rink.

And check out this cocktail list! My only regret? There are no creative Moscow mules. It doesn’t really matter, even though I wasn’t invited.

There was also a video of Wayne Gretzky giving a funny speech at the dinner portion of the event. He said, “In 2011, I looked at Dustin and said, ‘Run, man!'” which everyone laughed at.

And for all the sisters out there, it looks like we have a joint Emma and Paulina Gretzky clothing case.

My sister and I would get into whole fights about T-shirts and sneakers, which I’ll admit aren’t as pretty as this green dress. But I think they will get it all.

Until next time, gang!
