Golfers feeling the force

The new Star Wars film came out worldwide this week and some of the best players on the PGA Tour were more than happy to show off their inner-geek. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released worldwide this week, and a flood of social media content from a galaxy far, far away soon arrived.

Here is Jimmy Walker getting in on the action, slurping his favourite beverage from a Stormtrooper cup. It's quite likely his third favourite cup, after his two PGA titles earlier this year.

Hunter Mahan posed for this with his kid Zoe, who doesn't seems to mind daddy in a mask. He is certainly no clone though, as his nine professional wins inculde two World Golf Championship titles.  


Just remember, StormTroopers are people too. #starwars

The PGA Tour profile also got in on the act, quoting the character Obi Wan Kenobi after this lucky play. Can you see Obi Wan in the gallery?


We are not sure whose club this is, but having a nice little graphic on the toe of the club is a sure way to make sure you hit the ball off the face. Of course, you could also blame the dark side for any poor shot.


Here is Jimmy Walker again, this time with his wife and lightsabre on premier night. Let' hope he knows what to do with that thing…
