Young pro fires extraordinary round of golf to advance to Korn Ferry Tour Q School

Published

on

Last Friday produced one of the most astonishing rounds of golf you’re likely to see, and it came from young professional, Evan Grenus, at the pre-qualifying for Korn Ferry Tour Q School.

Grenus, who comes from Glastonbury, Connecticut, battled his way into the next stage of qualification despite making a triple bogey, a double bogey, and four bogeys by making three eagles and two birdies. But it’s how he made those scores that will astonish you.

According to Ryan French’s Monday Q Info social media account, the young pro began his round by holing out from 68 yards for birdie before holing out again from 140 yards for eagle two holes later. Four bogeys, a triple and a double followed in his next eight holes before Grenus regained the magic touch.

Needing to play his final three holes in four-under-par, Grenus holed yet another iron for eagle on 16, before knocking his approach shot on the last from 237 yards to tap in range to book his spot at the first stage of Q-school.

Five pars, five bogeys, one double, one triple, three eagles and three holed irons. Or quite simply, a round of 1-over-par!

    Important detail when stealing a tweet — you forgot the part where he started on #10:

    Evan Grenus started on 10 and made birdie by holing out from 68 yds
    On 12 a ???? from 140

    He then made 4 bogeys, a triple and a double in next 8.

    He came to his 16th hole FOUR off the #

    On 16 he holed a wedge for ???? …

    On 18 hit it to tap in from 237 for an ???? to get in by 1

    Sounds like a hack that got lucky 3 or 4 shots.

Brooks Koepka hits out at the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” attached to golf

Published

on

Never one to pull punches, Brooks Koepka has slammed the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” associated with golf which he feels is damaging the progression of the sport.

In an in-depth interview with GQ Magazine, the four-time major champion discussed a multitude of topics, and Koepka explained that the “gentleman sport” tag attached to golf is one of the reasons preventing more people from getting involved in the game.

“Hockey, you go to blows and then sit in the box for a couple minutes. Golf’s just held to a different standard. Because it’s supposed to be a gentleman’s sport. And that’s where I think they lose a lot of people. They just do.”

Asked what he would change about the sport if he had the chance, Koepka was quick to sound off on the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” which he believes is one of the biggest problems the sport has in attracting more support.

“One thing I’d change is maybe the stuffiness. Golf has always had this persona of the triple-pleated khaki pants, the button-up shirt, very country club atmosphere, where it doesn’t always have to be that way. That’s part of the problem. 

Everybody always says, ‘You need to grow the game.’ Well, why do you need to be so buttoned-up? ‘You have to take your hat off when you get in here.’ ‘You’re not allowed in here unless you’re a member—or unless the member’s here.’ Really? 

I just never really liked the country club atmosphere. I know that drives a lot of people away from liking me. But just ’cause this golf club has such prestige and the members are all famous and have a lot of money…like, why can’t I show up and just go play the golf course? Why do I have to sit in my car and wait for the member?”

The 29-year-old further explained how he doesn’t feel like no rules would be the answer, but how a more relaxed approach would prevent the feeling of “walking on eggshells” when at a golf course.

“I’m not saying no rules is the answer. But it’s like, you want everyone to enjoy themselves when they’re there, you don’t want to feel like you’re walking on eggshells when you arrive at the golf course. I don’t like feeling like I’m walking on eggshells everywhere I go.”

Brooks Koepka is in action this week at the Honda Classic and will tee it up alongside Matthew Wolff and Keith Mitchell for the opening two rounds.

European Tour pro reveals that he is currently blocked by Patrick Reed on Twitter

Published

on

On Tuesday in the Twittersphere, European Tour pro Eddie Pepperell revealed that Patrick Reed has blocked him on the social media platform.

Pepperell dropped the news in a casual tweet where he said

“(From what I’m aware of) Two people have blocked me on Twitter. Patrick Reed, and Jameela Jamil. Interesting couple they would make! (I was also once blocked by a namesake sports writer from the Guardian but he’s seemingly unblocked me now… Joy)”

Back in December, following Reed’s waste bunker controversy at the Hero, the Englishman slammed the 29-year-old in a tweet asking “What the f–k were you thinking?!” – which likely didn’t go down well with the 2018 Masters Champion.

While it appears Pepperell and Reed aren’t exactly on the best of terms, Bryson DeChambeau is one notable name who has backed the Texan.

Following Reed’s impressive WGC-Mexico win, DeChambeau told Golf Channel that himself and Reed sometimes get a bad rap and that “we understand each other’s pain sometimes.”
