Is Tiger Woods Next To Take The Ice Bucket Challenge, Golf’s Latest Social-Media Craze?

News, Videos

The premise of the Ice Bucket Challenge is simple. Create a video of yourself being doused with a bucket full of ice water, post to social media and challenge other people to participate in a 24-hour time period or else they will donate $100 to charity.

The best videos so far, beginning with Rickie Fowler.

Followed by Keegan Bradley.

Michelle Wie began the craze for the LPGA.

Jessica Korda responded almost immediately.

Suzann Pettersen challenged Paula Creamer.

Paula Creamer’s response.

Lydia Ko passed along the challenge to Lexi Thompson.

Lexi responded, albeit with a small bowl of water.

Luke Donald may have had the best reaction of all.

Golf Channel’s Gary Williams challenged Ian Poulter, who had trouble posting his video, but eventually laid down the challenge for Tiger Woods. We’ll all eagerly await Tiger’s response. He’s notoriously cheap, so the $100 might be enough motivation.

Here is the direct link to a video of Ian Poulter’s ice-bucket challenge.

UPDATED: One Woods was brave enough to complete the challenge!

Dumbest act ever.  Not entertaining or funny.  Just another way for attention-desperate professional athletes to scream "LOOK AT MEEE!" to the world.    But why not..... if you can't perform on the field, beg for attention on the planet's most pathetic invention: Social Media.

He won't do it, and he certainly won't give the $100 to charity unless Nike pays for his charitable contribution.

The only guy more girlie than Keegan is Tiger, so he won't do it.

Not sure who came up with this, but it's not really much. Haven't seen any ice in the ice buckets either.

Why young professionals need their social media.  Look at me...I'm an idiot!

GoodOleTom wishes someone would pour a bucket of ice water over the head of whoever writes this stuff.

That's all well and good but I think the charities would much rather have the hundred dollars.

Thank you Heather. I see you're a typical Woods fan with the very predictable initial salvo of name calling and insults.

Keegan and Lexi ...all I can say is WEAK!! This whole "ice bucket challenge" is WEAK to be completely honest...jumping into a Lake during winter in a cold climate state is an "Ice Water Challenge"

He's a tight a$$ ( figuratively and monetarily ) with no sense of humor.

This should be called "The Prove to the World You Are a Dumbass Challenge". But I suppose it would then be hard to distinguish this from all the other social media dumbassery that goes on.

Absolutely! If there's anything Tiger likes, it's a good laugh at his own expense!

No way Tiger does this. He's too stodgy for this. But i hope im wrong.

Actually it's kid of cool.  It makes PGA professionals seem more like the neighbors next door.  Normal people.  Actually most of them probably grew up in normal neighborhoods--although now they may live with the rich and famous on mansion street.

I suppose we'll just wait til next winter to do this, then.  Thanks for the heads up, Anthony.
