Joel Dahmen’s Caddie Recruits Ric Flair For Incredible Pep Talk (Video)

I’ve found it pretty hard to not root for John Dahmen, the professional golfer who’s repeatedly proven he’s a man of the people during his time on the PGA Tour.

Dahmen faced a bit of an uphill battle securing his tour card in the first place thanks to some misadventures during his time on the Korn Ferry Tour, but he’s become a fan favorite since punching his ticket to The Big Time by doing things like giving beer money to a spectator he hit with a tee shot.

The 35-year-old earned his first (and, to date, only) win on the PGA Tour with a victory at the Corales Puntacana Championship in 2021, and he’s currently listed as the 124th-best player on the Official World Golf Rankings and 72nd in the FedEx Cup standings during a season where he’s secured three Top 10 finishes.

However, his 11th-place finish at the Zurich Classic in April has been the only real highlight of 2023, a year where he’s missed the cut in five of the 13 PGA Tour events he’s participated in and ended up near (or at) the bottom of the standings in almost every tournament.

Dahmen declined to take part in the RBC Canadian Open as he prepares to head to The Los Angeles Country Club for the U.S. Open next week, where he undoubtedly hopes he’ll be able to turn things around.

Only time will tell if that ends up being the case, but he got one hell of a pep talk courtesy of his caddie Geno Bonnalie, who decided to hop on Cameo to recruit the one and only Ric Flair to give Dahmen a bit of motivation.

In the video, Nature Boy bemoans “Your golf game has gone to hell” while adding “I heard you can’t putt worth a damn” before saying he needs to start ripping some 300-yard drives and nailing some 20-foot puts to rebound before closing out the message with a signature “WOOO!!!”

If that won’t do the job, I don’t know what will.
