Tumbling suitcase leads to LPGA golfer’s injury

Published

on

Two LPGA players, one runaway suitcase, one bizarre injury.

Let’s begin with the obvious: A player was injured, so we’re not making light of recent events at Singapore’s Changi Airport. However, the circumstances surrounding In Gee Chun’s injury were odd to say the least.

Here’s what we can gather: It sounds like Ha Na Jang’s father wasn’t paying attention atop an escalator and lost his grip on his suitcase. Jang, it seems, was farther down on the moving staircase, and the tumbling luggage took the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open champion’s legs out from under her.

The result: An injury to the muscles around Chun’s tailbone that prompted a withdrawal from the HSBC Women’s Champions.

“I’m really sorry for what happened to Chun,” Jang, daughter of the suitcase-dropping party told reporters.

Chun’s father, however, added a bit of fuel to the fire by telling Korean media: “Regardless of how the accident came about, there has been no proper apology from Jang’s side even though a player was left unable to compete in a tournament.”

It’s unclear what the golfer’s father means by a “proper apology,” as Jang reportedly apologized immediately and offered the mea culpa above to reporters.

For her part, Chun doesn’t seem bothered by the freak occurrence, telling reporters, “I’m OK. I’m already over it.”

Chun’s injury has to rank with Brandt Snedeker’s Segway accident and Dustin Johnson’s jet-ski lifting injury among the strangest in recent golf history.  

We wish her a speedy recovery and return.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons which he has in the bag at this week’s CJ Cup. WRXers have been commenting on the switch and the clubs themselves in our forums.

For lots more photos, check out the full thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • btyh: “Holy offset.”
  • Glf_LU: “These are interesting. Not going to make a rush to judgement until I see them in person. It does look like a little more offset than I would expect to see in this model.”
  • bcflyguy1: “Kisner is not one to make a lot of equipment changes (see the GBB driver he’s still using), so if these do have staying power in his bag that will be interesting to see. I have to wonder if there’s something different about his set, because like others have mentioned there appears to be more offset on his than I recall seeing in the samples I’ve had in hand.”

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.
