WATCH: Patrick Reed confronts a camera crew at the European Open

Published

on

“I’m not going [hitting the ball] until y’all get the heck out of here,” Patrick Reed told a camera crew during the first round of the European Tour’s Porsche European Open in Germany.

Standing over his ball at Green Eagle’s 10th hole, the Golf Channel’s Instagram post shows Reed’s caddie, Kessler Karain motioning to someone and gesturing.

“You’re rattling change in your pocket. That’s why I’m pointing at you for,” Kerrain says forcefully.

Reed eventually says, “He lost privileges by going like that [rattling it in his pocket] with change],” before sending the crew further away.

See the incident below.

Warning to all camera crews: Do NOT jingle your change around Patrick Reed!

Fan behavior is a subject that can be debated, but there’s absolutely no excuse for anyone inside the ropes to ever be anything but respectful and quiet.

    Like him or not he is justified in asking the person to be quite while he is hitting the shot. The culprit should be warned and should be re-trained in how to conduct himself while working any golf tournament.

    I wouldn’t jump to firing the guy but P.Reed’s handling is justified and practical. Most spectators just outside the ropes are conscious of not moving and making noise in those seconds before the player makes their shot, let alone those working inside the ropes.

    This actually helped the guy rattling the change. Reed might of stolen it if he didn’t warn them. I kid, I kid.

    Staff and crew working these tournaments shouldn’t have to be told how to conduct themselves!

    If the players & caddies have to correct them, they shouldn’t be there in the first place…

    The cameraman should lose his job. He was deliberately trying to disrupt play even after being repeatedly warned by Reed’s caddie. VERY unprofessional.

      I love how we live in a culture where we think people should just be fired for anything. Man loses his job for jiggling loose change.

    I believe the offending individual was not the cameraman, but the other member of the two-man crew, who might be the “support” person who carries the battery pack and/or other stuff. If the actual cameraman is is operating the camera on a mono-pod, he’ll need both hands to operate it.

      Appears there were TWO camermen, one with a still camera on a mono-pod and one with the TV camera. Guess they’re making those batteries “long-lasting.” ^_^

      Unless you’re completely clueless you do realize that he does play in America on a regular basis right?

    I’ll bet it wasn’t the first time they had problems with the camera dude that day as well. Good on P Reed.

    There is a level of trust the players have with the cameraman. They expect them to be quiet and not move. That is really inexcusable by the cameraman.

      The camerman had nothing to do with it … keep up, Reed even tells the camerman sorry…

        It appears there were two cameraman…. keep up! Even if it was support for the cameraman wtf difference does it make? Same level of trust.

    Good for him. He’s a professional and the cameramen should be too.

Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?

Published

on

According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Air Jordan XXXII

Air Jordan VI

Air Jordan VIII

Air Jordan II (low)

Air Jordan XXX

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…

Published

on

Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.
