Golfer sues high profile golf club who revoked his membership for playing too much

Published

on

Sunningdale Golf Club is being sued by a former member who alleges that his membership was revoked because he played too much.

According to the U.K. Times, John Cawood, 72, a retired Australian lawyer, is in the process of suing the club after allegations that he was kicked out for playing more than 30 rounds a year.

The issue stems from Cawood playing as much golf as he has on an overseas membership which costs approximately three times less than the full annual membership fee of around $5,000.

Per the report, the Central London county court heard that Cawood joined the club in 1997 and would stay in the U.K playing golf for three months a year. It is claimed that Cawood also stayed in the U.K for an 11-month period over 2014-15.

Claiming a “stitch-up”, Cawood stated on Wednesday

“The club has a perceived idea that I play regularly over 30 times but it’s not true. The last time I played over 30 rounds was in 2006 and I paid a pro-rata rate per game.”

Cawood’s membership was revoked in 2015 after he had been warned twice that he should become a full paying member.

Sunningdale Golf Club boasts celebrities such as Sean Connery and Hugh Grant as its members, and it costs approximately $77,000 to become a member.

    The article does not make clear what the contractual agreement between the player and the club consists of. What limitations on play were explicit? Did he or did he not violate them? It sounds like few–or none–were in place.

        I agree, this guy thought he found a loophole and took advantage. If I were a regular member I would be bitter.

The new Puma polo that Bryson DeChambeau is refusing to wear

Published

on

Puma’s new “Saltwater Collection” was on show during the opening round of the Hero Challenge on Wednesday, with Rickie Fowler and Gary Woodland wearing a variation of the brand’s new Slow Play Golf Polo.

The Slow Play Golf Polo and Slow Play Pocket Golf Polo are turtle-patterned polos which poke fun at slow play – just don’t expect to see Puma ambassador Bryson DeChambeau, who has come under fire for his slow play on the course in the past, to sport the shirt in competition.

Speaking on the prospect of wearing the polo, the 26-year-old told Golf Channel

“It’s an awesome collection. They had the turtle one, and I wasn’t about to wear that. Not gonna happen.”

Rickie Fowler, however, believes DeChambeau’s refusal to wear the shirt is a missed opportunity, who he feels could have had some fun by wearing the new polo.

“I understand why. I thought it would’ve been awesome if he would’ve went with it. … And if people ask, ‘Well, Bryson, why’re you wearing it?’ [He could say] ‘Actually, It’s my own line. You know, [I’m a] little slow. Gary and Rickie decided to jump on board and be very supportive of me to help me through this tough time.’ He could’ve had some fun with it, but there’s time.”

You can check out the full Saltwater Collection here. In the meantime, we’ll have our eyes peeled to see if Bryson has a change of heart this week in the Bahamas!
