Okay, so on paper it doesn’t seem like watching six PGA Tour professionals having a three-point shooting contest would be super compelling. But there’s something really intriguing about seeing these dudes out of their element, doing something else athletic, to see what translates. And the fashion is super tasteful.

The PGA Tour released footage of Sahith Theegala, Harris English, Denny McCarthy, Russell Henley, Trey Mullinax and Mark Hubbard shooting hoops at Ohio State’s basketball facility and there’s simply a lot to process. From Henley embodying Luke Kennard to Mullinax looking like Max Strus last night to Theegala’s unconventional release, it’s all delightful.

Most impressive, obviously, is McCarthy. He’s the guy at the pickup run that you can just tell makes the right decision every time. And if you leave him to help on a driver, there’s a 55 percent chance he’ll make you regret it. Respect.

Someone with more access needs to release a definitive list of PGA Tour hooper rankings because now that the question’s entered my mind, I can’t think of anything else.

In an informative moment for those who wonder about such things, the Fox Sports broadcast team followed NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski as he made beeline for a Porta-Potty following yesterday’s race in Atlanta. It turns out the racers do just hold it for the entire race. The camera stayed on Keselowski throughout the duration of his stay in the Porta-Potty and managed to capture Denny Hamlin wandering over and opening the door on Keselowski, who did not have the presence of mind to lock it.

Matters were urgent, it seems.

The broadcast team presumably followed Keselowski for that long because he lost the race on the final lap and were hoping for some post-match fireworks. Instead, they got… this.

Hamlin clearly saw the humor in the situation and tweeted out later that smelled like “Hawaiian rolls” in the bathroom. Keselowski is sponsored by King’s Hawaiian.

Outstanding content. Thanks to Fox Sports for granting us this inside access.
