The Masters Lookalikes

In honor of the Masters tournament, I humbly give to you some Masters participants, as well as their celebrity lookalikes. As always, your opinions may vary. If you think of an obvious one I missed, suggest it in the comments. If you disagree with any of these and have a better selection, by all means point it out.



Jose-Maria Olazabal - actor Jason Biggs

They definitely look like they could be related. Large nose, same hair. I wonder if Jose Maria has ever had relations with a pie?




Tiger Woods - Ruthie Alcaide from MTV's The Real World

The alcoholic-lesbian former Real World cast member looks like she could be his sister.



Ian Woosnam - actor/producer Ricky Gervais

Their both Brits. They're both short. However, I'd wager that Gervais is funnier, and Woosnam can drink more. I believe they both belong on this website.



Mark Calcevecchia - actor Mike Starr

I had no idea who Mike Starr was, but I thought of him in Dumb and Dumber when I saw Calc's photo. He was the guy in the car with them when Lloyd asked if he wanted to hear the most annoying sound in the world.



Bubba Watson - Mose from The Office and Lloyd Christmas from Dumb and Dumber

Mose is Dwight's cousin that lives with him on their beet farm. Has an awesome Abraham Lincoln neckbeard. Slap that neckbeard on Bubba, and you've got a match. Mose is played by one of the show's writers Michael Schur, who's also one of the guys responsible for this great website. EDITED TO ADD: Bubba's haircut is straight from the "Lloyd Christmas Hair Salon" except that it's crooked. Apparently the bowl was cocked when they started cutting his bangs.



Brandt Snedeker - Ron Howard (actor), Alfred E. Newman

Snedeker resembles the "Richie Cunningham"-era Ron Howard - pre-baldness. Unfortunately, I was unable to find a Fonzie or a Potsy in the Masters field. EDITED TO ADD: commenter suggested Alfred E. Newman. Beautiful...



Jim Furyk - Ron Howard (director), singer James Taylor

Furyk resembles the Director Ron Howard - post-baldness and normally wearing a hat. EDITED TO ADD: Commenter suggested James Taylor. Well done...





Charles Howell III - Thurston Howell III

The only resemblance is their names. Little known fact: Charles is Thurston's nephew, and is heir to the Howell fortune, since Thurston and Lovey were lost at sea. He has never been able to colllect his inheritance because they were never confirmed dead. I would love it if Charles were to wear an ascot out on the links.



Zach Johnson - actors Joaquin Phoenix, Chris O'Donnell

Defending Masters champ will try to Walk The Line this weekend and repeat as winner. EDITED TO ADD: From anonymous commenter - Chris O'Donnell. Nice call.




Sean O'Hair - The Wiz from Seinfeld

Sean O'Hair is The Wiz. And nobody beats him.



Nick Faldo - actor Harrison Ford


I added this one at the request of a commenter. Nice call. Although Faldo was not a participant, he is an announcer and former 3-time Masters champ, and that's close enough for me.



Stuart Appleby - Wisconsin Deity Brett Favre


Thanks to another anonymous commenter for the suggestion.



Bernhard Langer - singer and writer of songs Barry Manilow, Big Bird

Another commenter suggestion. Is the commenter implying that both Langer and Big Bird are gay, or that Langer and Manilow look like birds?




New Champ Trevor Immelman - baseball player Johnny Damon, Team America Dude

We've found our Immelman! It's Immelmania! Nicely done by commenter GMoney. EDITED TO ADD: Main character from Team America: World Police - thanks to commenter Freezelle for the perfect match. I must admit I love cartoon character matches.



Colin Montgomery - Dolphins savior Bill Parcells

Okay, so Monty was not in the field at the Masters. I'm making the rules here. This one's too good to leave out. I'm told that their mansierre cup sizes are the same too - I think they're both C-cups. Thanks to anonymous commenter for this one. "Anonymous" sure has been helpful today. Keep em coming...

I don't know if the faces are quite right, but Bubba Watson has the same pumpkin-pie haircut as Lloyd Christmas and Chad Henne.

Good call on the Lloyd Christmas haircut. I'll add that.

Nick Faldo and Harrison Ford

Assman said...

Ah yes, nice call. Thinking out of the box - announcers as well as participants. I like it.

Zach Johnson should have been next to Chris O'Donnell (Robin in Batman Forever)...much better look-alike.

Brink said...

Stuart Appleby is a dead ringer for Brett Favre.

I can’t quite nail down Immelmann, but if Kurt Russell and Jeff Gordon were able to procreate, Immelmann would be a likely outcome. Probably Gordon comes closest to a doppelganger.

BTW, if that’s Zach Johnson, then his double is Neidermeyer from Animal House (Mark Metcalf). I couldn’t find a quality pic of him, but I’m sure you can.

Bernhard Langer, Barry Manilow, and Big Bird.

Jim Furyk is a dead ringer for James Taylor.

Assman said...

Thanks for all the comments. I'm adding them just as fast as I can. To the person who suggested Neidermeyer, I can't find a good picture of him either. "Is that a PLEDGE PIN ON YOUR UNIFORM?"

Tiger also looks exactly like TJ Ford of the NBA Raptors. But Ruthie from the Real World is much funnier.

jim furyk = sam the eagle from jim hensons muppets

Immelman looks like the twins that are on espn. They hosted some show for awhile where they watched old sporting events and made fun of the event. Either way he looks like those guys

GMoney said...

Hello, Immelman and Johnny Damon are dead ringers.

I also like Steve Flesch and Principal Strickland from Back to the Future.

SLACKER!!!

rhymeister said...

Good call on the Tiger Woods - Ruthie Alcaide thing. My bet is she's Filipina but she does indeed look like she could be Tiger's sis.

Barry Manilow's twin is Joe Montana, not Bernhard Langer.
