PGA Tour rookie gets stuck in traffic, decides to practice on the side of the freeway

You might remember John Peterson from Olympic Club back in 2012, when the unknown LSU fan with the great golf swing and putter cover in his back pocket nearly won that U.S. Open before Webb Simpson took home the trophy.

Peterson finished T-4 that week, and after a solid season this past year on the Tour, it's on to the PGA Tour for the 24-year-old Texan.

And apparently, Peterson really, really loves the game. So much that when he was stuck in a traffic jam on I-20 in Texas, he got out of his car, grabbed a couple of clubs and went to work on his golf game.

Peterson videotaped the whole experience which you can watch below, but I would say this probably isn't the best idea to past the time when you're in bumper-to-bumper traffic unless you're really accurate with your irons. I don't think "FORE!" works when people are sitting in their cars with the windows rolled up and the music on.
