(drum music)
Is it on?
(laughing)
Oh, man, that’s pitiful.
Hi, I’m Larry Fitzgerald.
I’m here at Whisper Rock, number at the Upper Course.
I am attempting to hit a yard shot on the green.
I have five shots and I hope to put them all on the green.
That’s wishful thinking.
[Man] That’s looking good.
That’s gonna be all over it.
[Larry] Get a bounce, bounce.
[Man] Oh, that’s on there.
[Larry] Settle.
Aw.
[Man] That’s gotta count.
[Larry] No good on that one.
[Man] Donating to the desert.
[Larry] Draw.
No good, now the money ball.
This is for a $,.
I plan on putting this one on.
No go.
Alright, we got $, I’m happy with that.
I’m yards away from the green.
I feel much, much more comfortable
with a wedge in my hand, than I do getting off the tee,
so I hope to put all of ’em on,
but not just on, I wanna be in birdie range though,
so, that’s what I’m shooting for.
Wish me luck.
Oh, got collared.
That get up, ah, goodness.
Third one on.
Alright, I’m four for four.
This is my fifth and final shot.
I’m gonna put this one close.
Bradley, TK, watch this.
You guys could even do this.
Chicken dinner.
(laughing)
[Man] Good job.
Alright, here we are, working on some chip shots.
My friends always joke about me being a scratch golfer
around the greens, and a off the tee.
I don’t think it’s too far fetched,
but I feel very comfortable when I have a wedge in my hand,
and I’m gonna try to make a couple of these.
Thin to win.
That’s one bladed wedge up there.
I can make that putt.
Okay, I’m gonna bump this one off the hill.
(applauding)
(sighing)
I didn’t blade that one.
It was a bottom-groover, but it wasn’t bladed.
Our fifth and final shot, this is worth $.
Golf Digest, you guys are just too generous.
[Man] Break baby, break.
(applauding)
Five for five.
Look at the delicate nature of that rake job.
That’s pretty good.
Like you’ve done that before.
I don’t mind green-side bunkers,
fairway bunkers are my nemesis.
So, I hope to put a,
I hope to put these five shots pretty close.
Stayed on?
[Man] Beauty.
(laughing)
We have some outtakes, that’s for sure.
Hey Brad.
Is it on?
(laughing)
Oh, man, that’s pitiful.
Alright, this is the fifth and final shot.
I’m gonna try not to decel on this last one.
It’s worth and I need to get this close.
(clapping)
So, Golf Digest has been too generous to me.
They’ve now allowed me to roll five putts for $.
I’m elated.
I’ve got to put all my focus into rolling these in.
[Man] Ah, good putt man.
Alright, this is my fifth and final putt.
[Man] We know it’s makeable.
I’m gonna make this Brad.
(clapping)
Golf Digest, thank you so much for having me.
I had a wonderful time.
Steph Curry, I’ve got to see about you man.
Today I was able to do two things I really enjoy,
playing golf and giving back to a worthy cause.
In , I unfortunately lost my mother to breast cancer,
so, a lot of the time I spend goes to raising awareness
to prevent anybody else from passing away
from such a bad disease.
My mother was also in the business of education,
my grandmother was a school teacher
and my mother’s sisters were also teachers.
If I wasn’t playing in the National Football League,
that’s something that I would want to be doing myself.
Bridging the gap in education is something I think
is truly, truly special.
If you’d like to learn more information about what I do,
in terms of my foundation work, please visit my website

I hope you guys had as much fun as I did today.

  41. Marcos Botelho on February 8, 2020 at 2:50 am

    Nothing more disgraceful for a brand than to condition a donation to a game. If you can donate money to help, just do it. Generosity is not supposed to be used to gain exposure. This is not real generosity. This is ridiculous.

  42. Taylor Spencer on February 8, 2020 at 2:54 am

    Great guy thanks Larry Fitz
