Jordan Spieth, Instagrammers roast Brooks Koepka for sweater selection

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.

Billy Horschel, Brandel Chamblee battle on Twitter re: Tiger’s swing

Published

on

Yes, friends, Billy Horschel and Brandel Chamblee traded barbs on Twitter. And while the specific issue, Tiger Woods’ swing, gets the headline, it’s worth noting that Horschel questioned the Golf Channel analyst’s ability to, well, analyze, more broadly.

Before getting to Chamblee’s latest bit of hornet’s nest kicking, it’s worth examining Horschel’s point: As Chamblee is “a ghost on the range,” and doesn’t talk to players about their swings or coaches about what they’re trying to get their players to do, Horschel doesn’t believe he’s qualified to talk about current player swings.

That’s a bold claim, but it’s one that’s almost certainly echoed by many of Horschel’s fellow PGA Tour pros. It’s certainly the way Tiger Woods, who by all accounts despises Chamblee and has lobbied behind the scenes for the analyst’s firing, feels.

Anyway, onto the exchange. Chamblee, not surprisingly, feels Woods’ action before the advent of Trackman. This is, of course, a moot point as Woods himself stated firmly his left knee issues made his early 2000s swing unsustainable. Regardless, Chamblee decided to tell his followers to emulate Woods’ early 2000s action and stay away from his “Trackman drunk” Foley-era swing.

Then, well, you don’t need play-by-play…

Nice to see Chamblee was able to work in his callback “lift your left heel.” A lot to unpack here, WRXers. What do you think?

Sergio Garcia is playing Callaway equipment, but he’s not a staffer (yet)

Published

on

As we reported last month, Sergio Garcia and TaylorMade ended their 15-year relationship. And as the GolfWRX forums have been speculating, Garcia will play Callaway equipment at the DP World Tour Championship this week.

However, as ESPN reports, Garcia and Callaway are yet to reach an agreement — and it doesn’t seem that an arrangement is imminent. All Garcia was willing to concede was Callaway’s leader-of-the-pack status.

“At the moment it’s the company that’s in front of the other ones,” Garcia said. “What we’ve been testing, the numbers have been really good with the balls that Callaway has brought to me. Now it’s just a matter of trying it on the golf course and trying it in tournament play, and seeing how it reacts and seeing how it feels.”

The decision to test the potential clubs he’s signing on to play in competition is a wise one, certainly.

Garcia’s remarks about parting ways with TMag, however, were a bit curious.

“It wasn’t only my decision,” Garcia said. “I spent 15 years with TaylorMade but unfortunately things come to an end. All companies change and the politics with TaylorMade have changed after leaving Adidas. We couldn’t come to an agreement. I understand that it’s also difficult when you have so many top players, to keep all of them. Unfortunately we were in that package.”

Politics? Package? What exactly went down? We’d have to assume Garcia was trying to leverage his major victory and strong season for a bigger piece of the sponsorship dollar pie. His remarks seem to suggest, however, TMag wasn’t willing to give him as much pie as he was asking for.

We’ll get you Garcia’s full Callaway WITB as soon as we have it.
