A quick story: The first time I tried to drive a golf ball at TopGolf was at the Wish Upon A Par charity event in 2017. From what I recall, I was chatting with Philipp Grubauer and he suggested I join his group with Matt Niskanen. I was uneasy, as I had never driven a golf ball before, but said ok. How hard could it be? I asked myself. Then I took my first swing. I missed the golf ball by two feet and my momentum almost took me off the platform. It was at that point — my face a dark shade of red — I put the driver back, said my goodbyes, and quit for the rest of eternity…
Which brings me to the Capitals’ Alex Alexeyev and Ilya Samsonov! They’re about as good as I am at TopGolf, but they own their terribleness and wear it like a badge of honor.
Over the weekend, the two Russian goofs took to the popular venue and posted their follies on their Instagram Story. Here’s what you missed.
