Tweets of the Week: Sergio Garcia’s bunker meltdown, Tiger Woods tees it up with President Trump, and Matt Kuchar gives a very scientific excuse

Published

Rickie Fowler got over the line at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, while Dustin Johnson won the inaugural Saudi International, in a truly chaotic week in the golfing world, which saw players call out the USGA, and Sergio Garcia DQ’d for attacking the greens in Saudi Arabia.

Here are some things you may have missed though, and some of the quirkier moments from the world of golf dished out in the Twittersphere over the past seven days.

Tiger & Jack Tee It Up With The President

Donald Trump appeared very happy to tee it up alongside two of the greats of the game…

…and even gave some insight into Tiger’s round…

Sergio’s Meltdown

Sergio Garcia may have been DQ’d for abusing the greens at the Saudi International, but here’s footage of him the day before losing the plot in the bunkers.

Dumped Clubs

While also at the Saudi International, an unknown pro decided to dump four of their clubs after a round. Must be something in the water over there.

Miller Bows Out

Johnny Miller made his final broadcast appearance on Saturday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Here are some of his finest moments from the booth…

…while Roger Maltbie gave this emotional tribute to Miller. Yeah, I know, all the feels, right?

Champ’s Shoes

In case you missed it, Cameron Champ rocked up at TPC Scottsdale wearing odd shoes. The reason? Champ was honoring Black History Month.

Kuchar Channels His Inner Bryson

Sorry, but what on earth are you talking about Matt?

    Champs salutes black hit tree mumph, pretty funny!
    Is the message they can’t pick matching pair of shoes or what?

        That question is rhetorical. You already know who he was referring to.

Callaway signs 17-year-old Akshay Bhatia to Tour staff; Akshay Bhatia WITB photos

Published

Callaway Golf has announced the signing of 17-year-old Akshay Bhatia to their Tour staff as he prepares to play his first event as a professional this week.

Bhatia starred on the U.S. Walker Cup team this summer, winning two matches during the event while being the youngest U.S. player in history to compete in the tournament.

Speaking on signing for Callaway, Bhatia stated

“I’m joining Callaway because the performance from the equipment is amazing; it’s better than what I could have ever imagined. Working with the Tour Team and learning about all of the technology that goes into their products has been a lot of fun for me, and the equipment gives me a lot of confidence as I start my professional career.”

The 17-year-old who has previously competed in PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour events as an amateur was the number one ranked junior in the world and reached number four in the world amateur rankings before turning pro.

Bhatia also won the 2019 Jones Cup Amateur Invitational, earned three American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) victories in 2018 and became the first player to win back-to-back Boys Junior PGA Championships in 2017 and 2018 during his illustrious amateur career.

Tim Reed, SVP of Global Sports Marketing, Callaway Golf, had this to say on the signing of Bhatia

“Akshay is one of the most prolific amateurs the golf world has seen in a long time, and we’re thrilled to have him join our Professional Tour Staff. 

He has all the tools to compete at a high level, he’s mature beyond his years, and we’re confident that he is going to have a lot of success using our equipment. We’re fortunate to have so many impressive young players on our staff, and we look forward to working with Akshay for many years to come.”

Bhatia will tee it up as a Callaway staffer for the first time at this week’s Sanderson Farms Championship with a full Callaway bag which includes the brand’s Epic Flash Driver.

(Reportedly Bhatia is still choosing between putters, but this was the one in his bag)
