    What’s Justin going to do at this year’s Ryder Cup? Ask the fans to be quiet while he hits?
    I don’t think so.

    What was the big deal. It was said after the shot had been hit. JT needs to grow a set of balls and quit acting like a little kid who just got told no.

    What a bunch of stupid comments, Straighten up Justin and quit acting like a spoiled Brat and encouraging these A-Holes. There fans today are not the reserved fans of yesterday, take your millions and be quiet.

    What people get out of the yelling is a mystery. It doesn’t get them any recognition. The Barstool guys have this all wrong. No you shouldn’t want to yell out against another player. It’s fine to root against a player but keep it to yourself. It’s not funny. Not entertaining. Adds nothing to the event. It’s interesting to see how this lack of self control has creeped into the culture.

    Part of it is the new idea “I can do what ever I want because it makes me happy, regardless of whether it screws up the experience for others” and it does come off as a bummer to a lot of people.

    Sort of like the dudes who drive down the street in their Honda Accord that has headers with the window down all the way and the radios jacked up all the way. Dbag.

    Justin needs to talk with Monty, Sergio (re-gripping episodes), Fat Jack. and many more.
    This is not a new problem. Get over it and play golf.

    Ok, toss out the dude who wants the ball in the bunker. When he’s gone,find the *ssclowns who yell ‘Bobba Booey!’ or ‘Mashed Pataytahs!’ or the always original ‘It’s in da’ hole!’after every goddamn tee shot.

    Oh and while PGA security gets those idiots into the parking lot, I’ll go make some popcorn to watch the 1,000+ riot cops descending on the 16th at the WM Open and arresting ALL the morons who either throw beer cans into the bunkers OR boo bad tee shots. Now watching drunks get their melons cracked live on the Golf Channel? THAT there is entertainment gold.

    Of course Brandel Chamblee and David Duval will have to offer opposing viewpoints on how the cops are using a long enough backswing, staying on plane, and following through on their baton strikes….

    Look. Boorish behaviour has existed in golf since 5 minutes after the game was invented, ok? “Aye McTavish, you goat f*cker, you swing that stick thing like a wee girl!” It only exists because the mob and the media tolerate it. If the mob turns and collectively points to the offender, or if the media willingly and publicly helps ID the jerks, then those who might act in this fashion will know they will ALWAYS be caught and dealt with, so why chance it?

    I appreciate the point when it comes to not having jerks on the course at PGA events. The reality is the genie has been out of the bottle for some time now. It’s going to take a couple years to get it back in.

Honoring our heroes with golf

Published

on

Mr. Parsons’ military service and the impact it made on his life is the foundation of the PXG brand. In my time with Bob, I am always excited to get into this topic because of how much passion he has for it. If you watch the initial video of this series, he goes in-depth as to just how much his service changed his life.

PXG Heroes is an extension of Mr. Parsons’ appreciation for that time and one of the many ways he is giving back to veterans and first responders. Led by 26-year Marine Corps veteran Kevin Hudson, the program has put PXG clubs in the hands of over 16,000 military veterans and first responders. This gesture has created a community of PXG Troops across the country, and in many cases brought some of our heroes back from PTSD and the challenges that our men and woman of the armed forces face upon coming home to civilian life. Truth be told, I don’t believe its the discounted clubs that are the headliner here or the ultimate difference-maker into a veterans recovery, it’s the community that is created around it and the promotion of a game that does have healing powers.

In addition to the PXG For Heroes program, the Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation has also raised more than 100 million dollars for the Semper Fi Fund, in an annual Double Down For Veterans match campaign. The Semper Fi Fund and America’s Fund help provide urgently needed resources for combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

Through December 31, 2019, the Foundation will once again match donations to the Semper Fi Fund–up to $10 million–with the goal of raising $20 million to continue providing vital assistance to our service members and their families.

I’ll let Kevin explain the rest to you in the video as I won’t do it justice, but I will leave you with this: In true Bob Parsons style, he dug in deep on this initiative, and of all the things we ever discuss, this topic is the one that really gets him going. It’s who he is, was, and what he wants PXG to stand for as a brand.

Enjoy the video.
