Video: The Jacksonville Jaguars’ mascot is better than you at golf

Ladies and gentleman, I'd like to introduce you to Curtis Dvorak. If you don't know the name, don't worry; he's not a rising star on the PGA Tour that you need to keep an eye on. But as a 2 handicap, he's a darn good stick.

I know what most of you are probably asking at this point: There are plenty of golfers out there playing to a single-digit handicap. Why in the world are we talking about this particular guy?

Well, friends, that's because Mr. Dvorak can do something the normal single-digit can't do. He can hit the 17th hole island green at TPC Sawgrass, during tournament week ... while wearing the Jacksonville Jaguars' mascot outfit.

As E. Michael Johnson noted in his Golf World Monday piece, Dvorak has been the Jaguars' mascot (Jaxson de Ville) since 1996, and during Players Championship week, he had the opportunity to caddie the back nine on Wednesday for Jim Furyk.

As the group approached the 17th hole, Dvorak was challenged by Andres Romero's caddie, Adrian Monteros, to hit a shot to the island green in full-on costume. Taking a little less club, Dvorak stood over the ball and laced a perfect 8-iron onto the green, drawing a cheer from the crowd.

Even better? Brandt Snedeker bet Furyk's caddie, Mike "Fluff" Cowan, $20 that the cat wouldn't hit the green. Big mistake, Brandt. If we've learned anything from this situation, it's that you should never bet against Dvorak ... especially when he's in costume.
