The Kentucky football team spent the afternoon at Top Golf. The coaches were too busy to join them; instead they spent the afternoon finishing last-minute preparations for Georgia Tech. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t any golf smack talk between the coaches.
The coaches have developed quite the rivalry amongst one another on the links. When Mark Stoops was asked who’s the best golfer on the coaching staff, he was prepared to call out one of his employees.
“I know who dresses the part, who acts like he’s a real good golfer is Coach Thomas,” Stoops said with a smile. “Lamar thinks he’s a golfer, but all I know is I’ve played him twice and whooped him both times.”
The media’s reaction:
Coach Thomas was not available to respond.
There’s one thing we can all agree on: the worst golfer on the team is Alex Montgomery. He may not know much about golf, but he should know that holding onto the club is a requirement.

Here is everything Mark Stoops had to say after today’s walk-through.
Tomorrow the team will have one more “run-through” before the final press conference of the week.
