DORAL, Fla. -- Saturday was a big day for Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik. He turned 50, meaning he could now compete on the Champions Tour. He spent some time on Twitter thanking everyone for their well wishes.

Sunday morning, he made his first potential bogey as a 50-year-old, posting this video of himself in bed next to his snoring wife, Mia:

The tweet was in Swedish, as was his whispering, giggling play-by-play of Mia.

Even Lee Westwood took time to tweet Parnevik before teeing off for his final round at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Jesper also responded to tweets (including mine) a few minutes later.

But don't worry, this story has a happy ending.

If I were Parnevik, I'd make sure to fall asleep after my wife and wake up before her for a while. She's pretty funny, too, and we all know what payback can be!

Parnevik breaks rib falling off Segway

July, 16, 2014

PGA Tour golfer Jesper Parnevik, most well known for the famous flipped up bill of his cap, tends to get noticed. Unfortunately for him, this time it's because he fell off a Segway and broke a rib.

The soon to be 50-year-old Swede has played in only three PGA Tour events this year, missing two cuts and finishing T-65 at the opposite field event in Puerto Rico.

Amazingly, it's not the first Segway injury on the PGA Tour. Brandt Snedeker hurt himself at a corporate outing falling off a Segway in China last November and missed out on some silly season events which pay out hefty cash.
