Jaguars Kicker Josh Scobee Trolls Tiger Hard On Twitter – Offers $100K Per Hole Challenge
To say Tiger Woods has hit the proverbial rock-bottom in his storied PGA career would be an understatement. Woods gave all indications he expected a strong 2015 campaign, then delivered a disastrous missed cut at TPC Scottsdale and an injury related withdraw from the Farmers Insurance Open. It couldn’t get any lower than that from the former world #1, could it?
Josh Scobee, kicker for the 3-13 Jacksonville Jaguars dropped Tiger a challenge on twitter, offering a wager of $100K a hole for 18 at San Jose Country Club. The kicker who is owed $3,425,000 next year has a picture of himself lining up a shot in his twitter avatar and participates in many fund-raiser golf tournaments in the Florida area, so his initial challenge was actually taken seriously by many of his twitter followers.
Tiger- meet me at San Jose Country Club tomorrow, $100,000 a hole. You get 2 a side.

Apparently @JoshScobee10 was tweeting with his beer can again recently. Can't expect much more from a kicker

@JoshScobee10 great to see a Jag throwing a joke out there, since you guys are usually on the other end of the jokes

Talk about kicking a man when he’s down. Joke, or not, Woods probably isn’t in the best frame of mind to take lightly a challenge from a kicker from the worst franchise in the NFL. There has been no reported backlash from Tiger, but his sensitivities seem to run on high lately, considering the apology he demanded from Golf Digest and Dan Jenkins. Between taking advice from Pat Perez in a recent chili dipper video, withdrawing from tournaments and now receiving challenges from kickers in the NFL, it is official: Tiger is at rock bottom. Couldn’t Justin Tucker, Dan Bailey or Stephen Gostkowski have delivered the low-blow? At least their teams win.
