WELCOME to the latest edition of Shotgun Start, your weekly wrap of the latest viral stories that you might have missed from around the world of golf.
Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell did a Q&A session via Twitter on Sunday, as he watched the final round of the US Open on TV after missing the cut.
This question was put to him by one follower and instead of
(a) letting it through to the keeper,
(b) saying he liked both guys, or
(c) picking one who he is friends with.
(d) awkwardly laugh and indicate to everyone watching on that he'd hate to be put through 150 holes with either of them.
TO THE GALLOWS
Tiger's first round implosion at last week's US Open was well documented, but this footage of the 14-time major winner trapsing into Chambers Bay's notoriously deep bunker after a topped 3-wood on the 18th summed things up perfectly.
The Chambers Bay volunteers had their hands full with the loud freight trains whizzing by some tee boxes at the US Open.
But it seems like this guy just felt obliged to do something as Tiger watched one thunder by. Click here to watch the hilarious Vine.
THAT GOES FOR YOU TOO, BUSH.
Even the foliage was loud.

WHAT'S IN A NAME?
American Webb Simpson was pranked all week long by someone at the USGA who was putting a different name badge on his locked each day.
Here are the others:
EAT YOUR GREENS, HENRIK
After an outburst where he described the Chambers Bay greens like "putting on broccoli", Swede Henrik Stenson decided he'd try to become one with the vegetable, before heading out to start his round on Saturday.
"Lunch before play! Day three at US Open is on its way! Every par is a winner! H", the post read.
IS THIS THING ON?
FOX's coverage copped a lot of stick during its first US Open, and with blunders like this one it wasn't hard to see why.

THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO FIX THIS DROUGHT
It's so dry at Chambers Bay, they are watering the water. Remarkable. pic.twitter.com/d1IrMrzK3A— Tweeter Alliss (@TweeterAlliss) June 20, 2015
STAMPING OUT THEFT
It seems even some of the world's best have trouble keeping tabs on their luggage when they travel around the globe.
PGA Tour pro John Peterson had his wedge stolen on a Delta flight last week, so he devised a cunning plan to help him track down his new club if it happened again.
This time last year, World Number one Rory McIlroy's clubs failed to join him in Ireland, when he flew home ahead of the Irish Open.
Hey @united landed in Dublin yesterday morning from Newark and still no golf clubs... Sort of need them this week... Can someone help!?— Rory Mcilroy (@McIlroyRory) June 17, 2014
The good news was that United replied to the World Number one saying they'd found his clubs and they'd be waiting for him when he arrived at the tournament.
