Rory McIlroy found himself in a pickle on the fourth hole, as his errant shot almost hit Adam Scott, who was readying to tee off on another hole!

McIlroy's shot ended up against the fence in some bushes, and he took an unplayable lie and teed off again. He finished the fourth hole with a double bogey.

U.S. Olympian Bode Miller is making the rounds after capturing a bronze medal in Sochi. That included a trip to the Masters with his wife, and they paid $7,500 for tickets to the tournament. 

However, the skier ran into some trouble when he tried to bring his quesadilla out of the suite and onto the golf course. The security guards quickly stopped him and took away his delicious snack.

Miller wasn't too pleased. Per The Augusta Chronicle's Susan McCord (via Augusta.com), Miller said, "If you pay $7,500, you ought to be able to bring out a quesadilla." 

The man makes a great point. However, the food prices at the Masters are affordable, so he can get something else to eat. 

All those food items look good, but sometimes you just want a quesadilla. We feel your pain, Bode.

Hermes, a company well known for fine leather goods and accessories, is now selling a very expensive baseball glove and bat.

The glove is made with gold swift calfskin; it took 25 hours to stitch and costs $14,100, per the company's website. 

They are also selling an ash wood bat with more gold swift calfskin around the handle for $1,925.

Now, we've got to ask, with all the millionaires in MLB, who will be the first to buy?

Anyone who watched the Denver Nuggets' 100-99 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night knew that Timofey Mozgov played a major role in the game. However, an erroneous graphic put up after the contest showed that fans didn't understand just how big of an impact the center had.

According to the graphic above, the fourth-year player put up an astounding 93 points—on only 10 field goals—29 rebounds and three blocks. That means Mozgov made a minimum of 63 free throws on his way to putting up the second-most points in a game in NBA history.

Of course, that error led to this graphic:

The 7'1" center was great Thursday night, but he wasn't quite that spectacular.

Offseason or not, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo can't escape his late-season struggles. 

It has been tough for Romo and the Cowboys to quiet the critics because they can't seem to get the job done. Not only does the QB have only one playoff victory in his eight years of starting, but Dallas has also missed the playoffs the past three seasons after losing winner-take-all games in Week 17.

At this point, Romo's name has become synonymous with the word "choke." Fans, players and the media all love making fun of the quarterback's struggles, even when it has nothing to do with football.

Large hands can be helpful in the NBA, which means the San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard has an edge over most of the league.

It's no secret that the 6'7" forward has large hands. However, it's much easier to see just how big when they are compared to another person's hands.

This is what happened when Leonard met a female fan:

Here's a little bit of background on the situation:

During the Tampa Bay Lightning's Thursday night showdown with the Philadelphia Flyers, one hungry Flyers fan got a special surprise. The big screen displayed his "romantic relationship" with the chicken he was eating for all to enjoy.

Here it is: The final product of trickle-down flop-onomics.

We all grew up mimicking our sports heroes. We stuck our tongue out like Michael Jordan. We tried to hurdle our friends like Walter Payton.

If our favorite players did it, we’d give it a roll. They were superstars. If it worked in the pros, we figured it would work in our youth league. 

Predictably, flopping in the NBA has become the object of mimicry in college and high school, but it would appear the practice has finally seeped all the way down to the youngest levels of the sport.

Just when the Golden State Warriors thought they were out of the woods against the Denver Nuggets, Kenneth Faried took the inbounds pass with 4.5 seconds remaining and went to work.

The crazy turnaround came on the heels of a beautiful finger-roll by Stephen Curry that put the Warriors ahead by a point. In the end, it wasn't enough.

If the NBA head office has one cardinal rule for all of its employees, it is probably "Do not publicly express the opinion that referees rig games."
