Fictional characters: who would dominate golf?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So a thought experiment for you all: which superhero/fictional character would dominate golf?

Some ground rules:

  • The character must begin by striking the ball with a club in the ordinary manner.
  • From there, he/she can use any of his powers within the respective canonical universe in which he lives.
  • That said, if he/she touches the ball, it is a two stroke penalty. (It seems to me, therefore, that The Flash should shoot a 54 for each round).
  • Influencing the ball's movement without touching the ball will, for the purposes of this thought experiment, be unpenalized.

The question, it seems to me, is one of who has the ability to move the ball with precision at great distances. My early contender here is Yoda. Who do you got?

Well, the MCU already has Hawkeye shooting 18 for 18 holes in the canon so I have to go with Hawkeye.

How can you top that?!  I mean really! 🤣

And here I was going to say the Flash because of his speed, I'm sure his club head speed would put the ball on another planet with a 1/4 swing! LOL

does the character have to hold the club that strikes the ball? or can the club be manipulated with their powers?

my vote goes to Dr. Strange or Harry Potter.

Id agree with someone like Yoda or Dr Strange because they can hit the ball and then guide it to exactly where they want with their mind, the force, etc...

As someone who practices Zen/Buddhism myself, theres all these old stories about Zen masters acquiring super powers.  Im still waiting on that one.  Being able to manipulate the ball with telekinesis would be a game-changer.  I guess for now I'll just have to settle for enlightenment. (kidding)

Any jedi would shoot go 18 or 18 with hawkeye. Any sith lord would use the jedi mind trick to convince us they shot one stroke better.

Well, Jean Grey from the XMen would also be able to influence the flight after the strike, but I would go as far to say that would probably be frowned upon by the RA / USGA. 

Taking only physical ability into play, I am a fan of Spider Man. I think Superman would be too strong. The Hulk would probably break his clubs before finishing a round out of Anger. The Flash seems like he would never be able to slow down enough to sink a putt. Thor might be a good choice if not only for the accent and insults - feels more like 🏡 home. Aquaman would be a good playing partner in a scramble format because there would never be a lost ball in water penalty. 

Dream 4 man scramble would be: Spider-man, Thor, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman (for obvious reasons).

I mean, full Infinity Gauntlet Thanos could go wreck some stuff. I would think that you don't want like the world breaker super strength guys, but guys with functional super strength like Spider Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Aquaman, WW, and the like. Also maybe underrated would be Shazam, a lot of talent in that little 13 year old child.

I'm going old school before these characters even came out. I'm going with the invisible man. The ball would just float along at walking speed and drop in the hole every time. Who can say he was carrying it? It might take two hours but he would still score 18.

I'm thinking maybe a combo of say a "normal" person like me to visibly hit the ball and Ant-Man to guide it to the hole. So on a par five I will have 240 yards carry with 260+ run 😁
