Classic Clip: Future UK Hall of Fame golfer Russ Cochran’s 14-point swing

Earlier today, it was announced that former UK golfer Russ Cochran will enter the UK Athletics Hall of Fame. In his honor, former KSR writer and PGA Tour caddie Aaron Flener dug up this hilarious old clip.

Cochran was a First Team All-SEC honoree at Kentucky and went on to a successful career in the pros, but in the 90’s, had a tough go of it in the Canadian Open, shooting 66 in the first round and 80 in the second. When asked what the difference between the two days was, Cochran quipped, “14 shots.” That’s just the first of many funny things about the video you’re about to watch.

(Some language NSFW)

Thankfully, Cochran’s career only went up from here. He went on to win ten professional tournaments, including one on the PGA Tour and four on the Champions Tour. He finished in the top 10 twice at the PGA Championship and won the British Senior Open in 2011. He’s still active on the Champions Tour (Senior PGA Tour) and has more than $13 million in career earnings.

Not too bad for someone who survived the pure self-destruction of a 14-point swing and hit the SOB everywhere that fateful day in Ontario.

    Years ago I was looking for a new club at GolfMart in Paducah (I think that was the name of the place). Russ was there and had locked his keys in his car…I gave him a ride home, and he couldn’t have been nicer. Introduced me to his family. My one brush with fame with a very nice man.
