With the exception of maybe Dustin Johnson, there's no question Gary Woodland is the best all-around athlete on the PGA Tour. Simply put, the dude is a freak of nature on the course, continually bombing it a country mile and flying the green from 249 yards with an 8-iron. To top it off, he also played college hoops and can dunk a basketball
The guy puts the average pro to shame, so it shouldn't come as surprise that Woodland nearly aced the par-4 10th on Thursday, crushing his drive 320 yards before his ball came to rest next to a ... trash can? OK, so Woodland didn't come close to holing out on the 10th. But he did come close to knocking it right in the trash can from 300-plus yards out, which is still pretty impressive.
Of course, all this happened at the Waste Management Open, making the whole Woodland-trash-can-ace connection even more hilarious. Better yet, he went on to par the 10th, thereby ensuring the hole wasn't complete garbage. And on that note, I'm going to end tonight's comedy hour.
