At that time of the year again.
Families gather around the table, giving thanks and filling their faces while watching football on TV.
However, some people may make their way to the golf course, scratching that itch that simply won’t go away. Even though the world of professional golf across the United States is quiet on Thanksgiving, that doesn’t mean golf can’t be part of the holiday season.
It got us thinking: Which golfers are most like with certain Thanksgiving dishes? Since we’re trying to have a little fun and not take things too seriously with the holidays around the corner, here’s what we came up with: (reminder – this is for fun).
Turkey: Jordan Spieth

Of course, we start with Spieth as the turkey. Because when done right, it’s perfection. When that is not the case, it will be a hot mess.
Ham: Joel Dahmen

An interesting creature and an interesting golfer. exchanges with the enclosure. His bucket hat. Self-deprecating. Is Dahm rolling in the mud? Can. But he said at RSM Classic that one of the keys to his success was not being stupid. Either way. Pork fat. Pork is fat.
Mashed Potatoes: Rory McIlroy

When it comes to mashing the ball off the tee, no one hits it quite like Rory. But no one can forget this legendary passage either.
Broth: Nelly Korda

Gravy is a fan favorite and can add flavor to any dish. Korda, a world No. 1 ranked player, is one of the faces of the LPGA and makes every leaderboard better when she’s on it.
Green Bean Casserole from Tiger Woods

Tiger is green bean casserole because it’s the best side dish, even if people are unwilling to admit it. GBC fans are also not shy about showing their loyalty to this dish, and have you ever met a casual Big Cat fan?
Filling: Tom Kim

When it comes to stuffing the ball tight, Kim knows a thing about hitting shots close to the hole. It’s a big reason why he won twice in the second half of 2022.
Mac and Cheese: Ho-Sung Choi and Jim Furyk

Macaroni and cheese may not be a traditional Thanksgiving dish. Similar to Choi’s and Furyk’s flips, they’re a bit unconventional and can look funky, but they sure get the job done.
Butter and rolls: Lydia Ko

A soft-as-butter stroke, Kuo rolled the rock to the best of their ability. That’s why I cashed a big check last weekend.
Pumpkin Pie: Brooks Koepka

Pumpkin pie is very similar to Koepka. It only appears certain weeks of the year and is often hard to find the rest of the time.
Crazy Uncle: Phil Mickelson

Well, this isn’t a Thanksgiving dish, but there’s always that one family member who comes to every gathering during the holidays, right? The one who keeps things a little on edge – you have no idea what they’re going to say or do, but that means you can’t look away and have to keep your ear for whatever happens next.
