This is just so heady. There are legendary benders, and then there are Billy Murray benders. After attending The Grateful Dead’s final show at Soldier Field in Chicago on Sunday (never miss a Sunday show), Bill Murray rolled into the John Deere Pro-Am wearing pretty much the exact same clothes. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s entirely possible that Bill went home after helping clean up at the Dead show (seriously, he stayed late and helped clean up), but it’s a hell of a lot more fun to believe that he’s just dominating dominating dominating.
Bill was originally spotted with Dead bassist Phil Lesh after the show sporting a certified fresh RVCA paisley Hawaiian, which may be come my new shirt of choice this summer.
…only to be seen wearing the exact same shirt in his round with D.A. Points at the John Deere Pro-Am.

Murray, who notoriously is always on his own program, has been known to be a partying wild card. And while, sure, sometimes you have a two-day hangover where your main objective is to just survive, I’d like to believe Bill Murray employed one of his favorite bender techniques straight from Soldier Field to the first tee. And that bender technique, per Dazed, is the Montana Cooler:
…the way I like to drink champagne is I like to make what we call a Montana Cooler, where you buy a case of champagne and you take all the bottles out, and you take all the cardboard out, and you put a garbage bag inside of it, then you put all the bottles back in and then you cover it with ice, and then you wrap it up and you close it. And that will keep it all cold for a weekend and you can drink every single bottle. And the way I like to drink it in a big pint glass with ice. I fill it with ice and I pour the champagne in it, because champagne can never be too cold. And the problem people have with champagne is they drink it and they crash with it, because the sugar content is so high and you get really dehydrated. But if you can get the ice in it, you can drink it supremely cold and at the same time you’re getting the melting ice, so it’s like a hydration level, and you can stay at this great level for a whole weekend. You don’t want to crash. You want to keep that buzz, that bling, that smile.
Some people just get it, man. .
