The Social: Spring break show must go on ...

The “Shotmakers” girls step up their game with the #SB2K boys preoccupied at a wedding, Patrick Reed’s green jacket tour may never end and PETA takes aim at a PGA Tour player.

All that and more in this week's edition of The Social.

They grow up so fast.

One year you’re bro-ing out in the Bahamas without a care in the world, the next you’re spending “spring break” at the wedding of one of your crew members.

But, even without the incessant week-long sponsored Snapchats, it looks like the boys found a way to have a good time despite trading in their swim trunks for tailored suits.

Luckily, the new Mr. and Mrs. Kaufman didn’t go full-McIlroy and allowed some photos of their big day in Birmingham, Ala., to leak out.

Now....We...GO! Let’s do this thing @smyliekaufman10 @francieharris #fransallsmyles

And ... let's go live to Kaufman at next year's spring break:

You just never know if you're gonna have enough time for Bed Bath & Beyond.

Some would say Patrick Reed arrived when he slipped on that a fancy green jacket two weeks ago after winning the Masters. Some would be wrong.

Since topping the field at Augusta National, Reed has worn his new prized possession everywhere, from "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" to courtside at a couple of NBA games to a Chick-fil-A drive-thru and everywhere in between.

But the moment he truly arrived would be when he posed for photos last week with American icons Guy Fieri and 2 Chainz.

Fieri, Reed and Mr. Chainz riding the ravioli train to Flavor Town in search of America's greatest diners, drive-ins and dives would be the most ambitious crossover event in history. Let's make it happen.

Do it for the 'gram.

I hope they made that a boomerang @starting9

Kelly Kraft learned the hard way last week that there are some birdies you want no part of on the golf course.

The 29-year-old PGA Tour pro missed the cut by a stroke at the RBC Heritage after his tee shot on the par-3 14th hole hit a bird mid-flight and ricocheted into a water hazard, eventually resulting in a double bogey.

Kraft told reporters after the round he got “screwed” and even took to Twitter to call out the bird in a Happy Gilmore-esque post.

In a shocking development, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals [PETA] came to the defense of the reportedly unharmed bird, and called out Kelly for not playing better on the other 35 holes of the event.

"PETA is glad the bird is OK and sorry Kelly Kraft didn't advance, but that's not the bird's fault,’’ PETA senior vice president Lisa Lange said in a statement to USA Today Sports. “Of course, he would have advanced if he'd played better on other holes — so practice, practice, practice."

Kraft hasn't responded as of yet, which is probably smart. Just let this juicy golf beef die.

With the spring break spotlight up for grabs, someone had to step up and take one for the team.

Enter the stars of Golf Channel's new original show "Shotmakers."

While Spieth, Fowler and Thomas were watching their unanimous spring break MVP get hitched, Chelsea Pezzola, Tisha Abrea, Kenzie O’Connell and Nikki Bondura did their best #SB2K impersonation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, as part of a bachelorette party ... and they pretty much nailed it.

The foursome, whose show takes place at at Topgolf Las Vegas and debuted to more than a million viewers last week, soaked up a little sun on the beach, downed a few adult beverages and spent some time on the golf course - the tried-and-true vacation technique that has stood the test of time.

On behalf of the entire golf vacation viewing public, The Social would like to thank these ladies for their sacrifice.

Solid point. Why get married when you could be practicing? This guy seems fun.
