The 6th Season of Game of Thrones is less than a day away. What better way to celebrate than by putting our favorite golfers in the same fighting pit as the Game of Thrones characters. As there are many playing the great game, I will only select a handful of those in the realm…
Jon Snow // Jordan Spieth
Jordan Spieth has just encountered one of the hardest days in his career. Coming so close to victory and then coming up short. Jon Snow similarly thought he was doing what was right as the new Lord Commander until he was backstabbed (actually they all did it right in front of his face). Anyways, both have been put in a very difficult situation that we all hope can come back from.. alive.
Robb Stark // Rory McIlroy
Besides their good looks and amazing accents, Robb and Rory have more in common than you think. Robb was winning every war and was eventually named King of the North by his banner-men. It was only until he let a woman into his life that everything went downhill for this guy. Not saying those things are finitely correlated but Rory hasn’t been doing so well this season after letting the world know he was engaged. Let’s hope he can make a better stand than Robb.
*Theon Greyjoy // Danny Willett
An outsider to the spotlight, Danny has made his way into the game. He has it way better than Reek but they have both become front runners in what most think is a short time, but in reality has been a long time coming. Plus they kind of look alike.
Joffrey “Baratheon” // Bubba Watson
As the most hated player on Tour and definitely the most hated character on Game of Thrones, these two have to be paired together. Bubba definitely has a more sensitive side than Joffrey ever had, but both crave attention and don’t care how they get it.
Jaime Lannister // Jason Day
If Jason Day were truly Jaime Lannister, he would have thrown his body in front of his wife to save her from thatLeBron collision a few months back. Maybe if it had been his sister things would have been different..
Cersei Lannister // Suzzan Pettersen
Suzzan got her bad rep by challenging a picked up ball during the Solheim Cup. Cersei Lannister is just a crazy bitch that no one likes. While these are too different things, I’m not not saying that Pettersen had a bit of Lannister in her when she made that challenge.
Tyrion Lannister // Tiger Woods
Tyrion once said, “Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor and it can never be used against you.” Wise words from a wise character. I believe Tiger Woods probably feels a similar way, crippled by his back and out of the game. While haters may hate, he goes on with his life and wears it like armor. BADASS.
Daenerys Targaryen // Lydia Ko
Lydia Ko is killing it in the LPGA right now. Winning back to back majors and stealing the show. Daenerys had nothing but her name and ended up with an entire army and three dragons by the end of a season. “All men must die, but we are not men.” YASS QUEEN SLAY.
There are clearly many more golfers and characters to compare and contrast but I thought these were the most important to touch upon. Do you think these are right? Would you switch any around or choose different golfers entirely?
Season 6 starts Sunday April 24th!
