What in the name of Jackson Pollock is this, Brooks Koepka?

Koepka posted a picture of himself and girlfriend Jena Sims at the Yankees-Astros ALCS game Tuesday night.

Not only did Koepka’s Astros lose, but so did his dignity, as no shortage of ‘grammers, including Jordan Spieth, raked him over the coals for his sartorial selection.

Spieth, for his part, has this to say

“@bkoepka what the hell did you spill”

Here are some of the other standout replies. And full disclosure, we cannot confirm that Brooks’ attire is in fact a sweater and not a sweatshirt.

dev0n_m: What kind of shirt is your boy wearing?? @gooberrose
gercorless@simonsimonik don’t know if he’s my guy anymore

tuebbing@nealvoorde: Cosby sweaters making a comeback?

nathanjeffreys: My man I like that cliff huxtable sweater lookin fresh

nnewmark11: I used to like you Brooks…

sawagolf:  Luv him but that shirt is a mess. Wtf

charliem_iii: Homeboys got a Jackson Pollock for a sweater

seansanguansap: Did your pen explode on you?

mistanoah: clean up on aisle 8

Savage stuff. BK would have caught less flack  if he’d arrived in a full 1970’s Astros “tequila sunrise” jersey.

    Thanks for circling his sweater in the pic. I wasn’t sure where it was at.

What’s your favorite photo from the history of pro golf?

Published

on

Golf history, as we know, is rich. Dramatic storylines, pithy anecdotes, iconic equipment, and storybook shots are all woven into the vibrant tapestry of the game at the professional level.

It’s no surprise, then, that from the rough black-and-white of Old Tom Morris, open-stanced, gazing past the camera to his target, to the present DSLR shots, the history of the professional game is peppered with great photographs.

WRX member Christosterone started a thread with the question, “What’s your favorite tour picture and why?”

He offered this shot of “three reverse-c idols and a Texan.”

Of course, it only took one response, for someone to offer up this classic shot of Arnold Palmer and Ben Hogan. One assumes that the fact that they didn’t care for one another only enhanced their badass postures.

 

Also, dicko999 (who better to post the following?), offered a cropped version of the legendary Presidents Cup streaker shot. Beyond the absurdity of the scene, the facial expressions make this shot great.

Just a fantastic thread that you’ll want to check out–and hopefully add a photo of your own to.

Check out the thread.

Parents in Montana can’t watch their children golf, and nobody is happy about it

Published

on

In Montana, as you may have heard from an irritated friend at some point during the past month, spectators cannot watch high school golf.

Nick Petraccione of KBZK originally did a deep dive into the following passage from the Montana State High School Association Rulebook in November.

“No spectators/fans are allowed on the course except for certain locations as designated by the tournament manager and club professional.”

Petraccione found the “designated” areas are generally the first tee box and the 18th green, but at some courses, there are no such area. Needless to say, as the KBZK report has been disseminated through the golf mediasphere over the past month, most are not in favor of the MSHA’s position.

Before drilling down into some of the dissent, it’s worth considering the logic of spectator restrictions. Per Petraccione:

“It comes down to a few factors: mainly that golf courses and tournament managers are involved in opening those spaces, not the MSHA. Other factors include parents being unruly, disrupting play, spectator safety, and illegally coaching players on the course.”

Fair enough. But the other side of the coin, beyond parents merely wanting to watch their kids play, is that the MSHA could be “trampling on civil rights,” per James Greenbaum, an attorney KBZK spoke with.

“The highest court has stated many times that difficulty of enforcement is no excuse for trampling on civil rights. They are discriminating against children and parents in an outrageous manner in violation of the federal and state constitution. That is a fundamental right, for their parent to bond with their child and encourage them in something as innocent as a sporting event. … How could you deny a parent that right?”

The outrage, as mentioned, is abundant. Major-winner Shaun Micheel tweeted his disbelief. Micheel also suggested the policy handicaps potential college recruits.

“Scores are only part of the bigger picture…That being the intangibles like attitude, etiquette and temperament. How does the player handle adversity? All of the extra things that are part of competing. Coaches aren’t able to evaluate those things by looking at just the final score.”

Chris Kelley, a parent of a high school golfer in Montana, created a Change.org petition aimed at bringing awareness and ultimately changing the rule. Dylan Dethier at Golf.com filed a look at some of the petition’s signees, which include Xander Schauffele’s father and a handful of coaches. You can view the petition here.

The MSHA has declined to comment.
