The European Tour’s digital and social media content teams have been the best in golf for years, but the players are finally stepping up and taking over.
After years of acquiescing to requests from the Tour’s media teams, Tommy Fleetwood, Henrik Stenson, Lee Westwood, Thomas Bjorn and Eddie Pepperell put their heads together and formed “The Content Committee.”
“We’re actually just pretty tired of being asked to do these ridiculous ideas by the media guys,” Fleetwood, the de facto head of the “Content Committee” said. “And it’s the first Rolex Series event of the year in Abu Dhabi, and we just thought we’d come up with the ideas ourselves.”
From getting interviewed by an outspoken child to hitting golf balls all day in hopes of making an ace, the ideas and videos that have come from the European Tour over the years have been brilliant, but “The Content Committee” immediately shoots to near the top of the list.
The performances by the entire cast were hilarious, but Pepperell’s bleeped-out rant was one highlight that should the unedited video come out, would sink any of his future endeavors, by his own admission.
*IF* the uncensored version ever comes out, I’m totally done. Eternally unemployable.

“*IF* the uncensored version ever comes out, I’m totally done,” he tweeted. “Eternally unemployable.”
To be honest, we’re looking forward to seeing the first installment “Monty’s Pythons.”
