Chris DiMarco calls Patrick Reed a cheater and a “d*ck” in social media rant

Published

on

On Sunday evening, former PGA Tour professional, Chris DiMarco, took to social media and unleashed an explicit rant directed at Patrick Reed following the Texan’s playoff defeat at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

DiMarco brandished Reed a cheater and a d*ck as he posted a series of tweets criticizing the 29-year-old’s character.

DiMarco’s outburst comes after a spectator at the event screamed “cheater” after Reed had struck his birdie attempt during the third playoff hole at Kapalua.

In case you missed it, Reed was penalized two strokes for an infraction in a waste bunker during the Hero World Challenge.

    Says the guy who berated our girl working in the proshop for not getting a free cart (all parents paid $25) when his kid was playing a tournament at our course back in 09′. He literally pointed to his golf bag with a FL Gator on it that we had on display and said “do you now know who i am”? After that incident, any respect I had for Chris was out the window.

    Says the d*ck who anchors his putter and has a fireplace worthy of a d*ck.

    At least when a spectator shouted out he took it on the chin, unlike the child Thomas.

    I found myself wanting Reed ti win the playoff after Xander was out. Hoping a Reed victory would have silenced all the Aussies down under!

    Nothing says d*ck like a pack of virtue-signalling hyena hypocrites who cry that Reed cheats while pretending that they have never cheated. Yes, all golfers have cheated at some point. Did it really matter? Probably not. Reed took the penalty. Done. You want to know the definition of d*ck? Rory McIlroy. And a cheater too. Rory tried to cheat last year at WGC Mexico by standing on a cart path and make a chip-out swing through a tree to coerce a drop. Through a tree! Nevermind that. He’s the media darling. Regardless some people feel like they need to tear into others to make their own washed-up selves feel better. Right, Chris?

    Reed is an amazing talent and player but he’s got a victim’s mentality and he’s a cheater. It’s not speculation. It’s on camera for the world to see whenever queried. All he had to do was own up to it and move forward but like a true sociopath he refused to accept any responsibility. And the fact that he has a history possessing questionable integrity doesn’t bid well for arguments that people are merely picking on him just because. Reed is a cheater.

      Reed cant see sand behind the flange, or feel 1/2 inch on the take away. It looked like a beach. As long as there is some doubt…Reed deserve’s the benefit of the doubt. Camera view was behind the take a way…yet Reeds view was on top looking down blocked by 3in wedge flange…just sayn

        These professional golfers have a level of feel and touch that is extremely precise. They can typically tell when they’re holding a club with 1/2 and 1/4 too much / too little loft. You’re telling me Reed couldn’t feel himself pushing sand away twice?! Also, the mound of sand behind the ball also looked completely different after the two practice swings.

        He cheated, and he knew it.

    Nothing says d*ck like that fake fireplace, tv above it,and taking a picture of said fireplace and tv to attach to a social media post calling the person on the tv a d*ck.

    Did Reed cheat to win two (2) NCAA Championships at Augusta State? Two (2) NCAA Championships in a row? Cheated to win both?

    People need to get over this Reed thing and move on. A couple years ago Lexi missed marked her ball on the green that looked obvious and i don’t remember anyone calling her a cheat. Reed violated a rule was assessed a penalty and moved on. There has been many people caught violating rules by TV and all were givin penalties and moved on. The golf channel loves to talk about his penalty. The thing of it is he violated a rule got penalized and moved on. I don”t need to here him say he was sorry. It’s over, forget about it.

    Number of wins on the PGA Tour: Reed-7 DiMarco-3 . . . Number of majors Reed-1 DiMarco-0 . . . Go join your slappy brother in the broadcast booth on the Golf Channel . . . He couldn’t win squat either????

    I’m no fan of Patrick Reed, not because he has been caught cheating a number of times dating back to his college golf days, but because of his better-than-thou attitude. I don’t understand why he has to act that way. I thought originally it was because he was just a young kid who didn’t have a proper upbringing, but he’s 29 now. Time to grow up. That chip on his shoulder is bigger than his head and THAT’s pretty big to begin with, both literally and figuratively. He’s got a fabulous game, even when he doesn’t cheat, but his reputation has been ruined and he did it to himself. It’s such a shame to be that good and have a terrible rep. What a waste.

      doug, what do you do for a living? make 50k at the local factory and sneak out to the muni once every two weeks when the kids are down and the wife isnt pissy? at least patrick reed is in a position where his rep matters.

      • Benny

        Jan 7, 2020 at 2:59 pm

        Seriously pal you are a joke for saying that. I have never worked in a factory but I respect any man who does.
        Keep looking down on people Jeremy. Life is going to be great to you. I’m sure of it.

        • Mike

          Jan 7, 2020 at 6:57 pm

          According to the genius Jeremy….only people that have made a certain amount of money can have an opinion. And if you’re a factory worker? You definitely can’t comment about Patrick Reed the cheater. Jeremy, I hope you’re smarter than you appear.

      A few years ago my then-middle school aged son and I were milling around the clubhouse at Crooked Stick near the end of the Sunday round of the BMW. Although the player’s exit was only a few feet away, we weren’t looking for autographs or really even paying much attention to who was leaving for that matter. We were waiting on some friends to meet us to leave the event. While waiting, Reed exited the clubhouse on his way to the parking lot. My son, who had his back to Reed, and I were the only patrons in the area. Reed tapped him on the shoulder as he walked by. He asked him if he’d enjoyed the day, how old he was, how his summer tournament season had gone, etc. The whole exchange took maybe 2 minutes. He had nothing to gain from this. Nobody else was around, no cameras. If he would’ve walked on by without noticing us we wouldn’t have thought anything of it. Does this mean I think Reed is a great guy, does it disprove all the other allegations levied at him in my mind? Of course not. What it does do, however, is convince me that whatever else Reed may be, there is more to him than what we see and hear.

        Nice! I love hearing these kinds of stories. We all make mistakes, like calling someone a ‘d*ck” on twitter or shoveling sand with a wedge, but it’s really about how or if we overcome those mistakes. I can tell you one thing I know for sure…name calling never helps anyone. Surely there’s a better way to articulate your point. Then again, that comment came from a guy who named his first born son Christian. Way to go DiMarco, thanks revealing your true character.

      Finally someone said it. Seriously how can anyone defend Reed anymore? It is one incident after another.

      His doing mistakes since College and seems to never learn from them. One thing after another and he dosen’t seem to have an honest bone in is body. A shame for the sport of golf.

    Reid is a cheater. You can tell in the interviews he is trying not to be a conceded dick but he doesn’t hide it well. Dude can win when the stakes are high in team competition, but integrity is everything.

      to 30% with Trump. Lies more than 15,000 documented times in three years.

      Sports figures in baseball(steal signals in World Series), cheat in NFL championships.

      Nothing unusual about Patrick Reid… get used to it.

        The difference between Potus and Patrick Read is Potus doesnt deny that he cheats

Morning 9: PGA: Day, Todd lead (-5) | Koepka (-4) | Woods (-2) | Bryson breaks driver

Published

on

1. J-Day leads the way (-5, tied with Brendon Todd)
Golf Channel’s Rex Hoggard rightly mentions that “backwatch” extends beyond Tiger Woods at TPC Harding Park to the current tournament leader….”Jason Day has been spotted in recent weeks slowly plucking his golf ball from the hole in an attempt to protect against re-injuring his back, and he had his share of concerns heading into what promised to be a frigid round on Thursday. Instead, the sun broke through the fog around midday and temperatures climbed into the mid-60s.”
  • “It was nice to be able to have the sun for a change. I mean, it’s been kind of overcast and gray here,” Day said. “You’ve got to be careful. It is a lot colder; 50 degrees pretty much to be precise from last week [in Memphis].”
  • “Whatever concern Day had was quickly eased when he birdied his first hole (he started on No. 10) and made the turn at 2 under. He added three more birdies on his second nine and finished with a bogey-free 65 and the early lead.”
2. Reinvigorated Kaymer (-4)
Excellent framing of the German’s opening-round 66 by ESPN’s Bob Harig…”since that victory at the U.S. Open, he’s had just one top-10 finish in a major, a tie for seventh at the 2016 PGA championship.”
  • Hence, the lack of expectations before shooting 66 in the opening round of the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park.
  • (Kaymer) …”So last night I was watching the U.S. Open actually from 2014, the back nine, trying to get some kind of positivity in my game because it hasn’t been much recently because of no play. On the first tee, I was thinking, obviously this [the 10th] is one of the easier holes right away with a par-5, if I can start off nicely with a birdie, that would be great.
  • “Watching that video of me winning the U.S. Open, that helped me to believe that my putting was good enough, that my ball-striking was good enough, even though it’s a few years back. But it’s always nice to remember those moments and feel the same that you felt that day.’
 
3. Quality start for Tiger (-2)
PGATour.com’s Sean Martin…“Woods wore a sweater all day, but the cold, damp conditions at TPC Harding Park didn’t impact his ability to swing freely. He led the field in driving distance when he walked off the course, averaging 313.5 yards off the tee on the two measured holes.”
  • “He hit just half his fairways Thursday, missing several left after hitting tee shots off the toe. His iron play was strong when he was in the short grass, especially on his back nine.”
  • “The most part of the day, I missed the ball on the correct sides,” Woods said. “This golf course, you have to hit the ball in the fairway. You get a ball in the rough, into the grain, there’s no chance you can get the ball to the green. I felt like I did a decent job of doing that.”
  • “Woods was even par after 12 holes, but hen rolled off three birdies in a four-hole stretch.”
4. Brooks (-4)
Golfweek’s Adam Schupak…”Brooks Koepka is sitting pretty in his quest for a three-peat at the PGA Championship. Koepka opened with a 4-under 66, just one off the pace set by former PGA champion Jason Day and fellow first-round co-leader Brendon Todd.”
  • “Koepka is well aware of the historical significance that is at stake this week as he attempts to become the first in the stroke-play era of the PGA to win three Wanamaker trophies in a row, and the first player overall to win the same major three consecutive years since Australian Peter Thomson achieved the feat at the British Open (1954-56).”
5. How Brooks found his swing
Golf Channel’s Ryan Lavner…“Poring over swing video with coach Claude Harmon III, Koepka learned that 70 percent of his weight was on his back foot at impact – a subconscious move to alleviate pressure on his ailing left knee.”
  • “The fix was simple – dropping back his left foot “a hair” – and while watching video from the past two PGA Championships with caddie Ricky Elliott, Koepka noticed that from that position he was able to drive off his right foot and not feel any twinges of pain.”
  • “My feet are usually a little bit staggered from a perfect golf swing, too far left,” he said, “but that’s just how we play. It’s nice to feel comfortable over the ball. I’m starting to see it come out of the right pocket, the right window, and that’s exciting.”
6. Queue up your Hulk jokes
Multiple Pulitzer Prize winner and GWAA Writer of the Year Ben Alberstadt writes…“In a situation seemingly conceived of as comic fodder for the internet in general, Twitter in particular: Bryson Dechambeau snapped the LA Golf BAD Prototype shaft of his Cobra King SpeedZone driver during the first round of the PGA Championship.”
  • “Adding to the comic possibilities of the occurrence, which befell DeChambeau on the seventh hole at TPC Harding Park, it was neither American muscle’s vaunted swing speed nor a temper tantrum that caused the fracture.”
  • “Rather, Bryson DeChambeau snapped his driver shaft by...leaning on it with the force of his recent thickness while picking up his tee.”
7. Tour layoffs
Golfweek’s Tim Schmitt…”As the PGA Championship started at TPC Harding Park this week, the PGA Tour confirmed a number of job cuts to staff personnel.”
  • “The Tour did not reveal the number of individuals laid off, but PGA Tour Vice President of Communications Joel Schuchmann said the moves will help position the Tour moving forward.”
  • “As a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PGA Tour – much like many other organizations – has had to identify ways to streamline our operations,” Schuchmann said in a statement.
  • “While it is never easy to say goodbye to valuable members of the Tour family, this week’s targeted job cuts will allow us to most efficiently deal with the current climate and prepare for 2021 and beyond.”
8. LPGA: Ko, Kang lead
LPGA Communications team…“With a pair of 7-under 64s on Thursday, American Danielle Kang and New Zealand’s Lydia Ko are tied atop the leaderboard at the 2020 Marathon LPGA Classic presented by Dana. Kang went bogey-free around Highland Meadows Golf Club, crediting a strong day with her putter, and is looking to become the LPGA Tour’s first back-to-back winner since 2017.”
  • “I worked a lot on my putting for the last couple days. Didn’t really like how the ball was coming off my putter,” said Kang, who won last week’s LPGA Drive On Championship. “But I think that I kind of got a good feel out of it; then today my putting worked really well. There are days when the ball goes where you see, and that’s what happened.”
  • “Ko carded eight birdies and one bogey at a course that has historically been very kind to her. Ko has two victories and two other top 10s in her five previous tournament appearances, with a scoring average of 68 over those 20 rounds.”
9. Euro: Sharvin stands in front
EuropeanTour.com report…”Cormac Sharvin made sure it was worth the wait as he edged into a one shot lead after the first round of the 2020 English Championship.”
  • “The Northern Irishman teed off in the final group in Hertfordshire and delivered a course record 63 to sit at eight under par, nudging ahead of six players locked at seven under.”
  • “David Howell rolled back the years and looked to have earned his first 18 hole lead at a European Tour event in 636 appearances as he joined Australian duo Jason Scrivener and Min Woo Lee, Zimbabwe’s Scott Vincent, Hero Open runner up Thomas Detry and Laurie Canter as co-leader.”
  • “But the 27-year-old Sharvin, who graduated to the European Tour after finishing the 2019 Challenge Tour season in 11th position on the Road to Mallorca Rankings, carded ten birdies and two dropped shots to take the outright lead.”

Brooks Koepka aims cheeky dig at ‘scientific’ Bryson DeChambeau

Published

on

When majors come around, you just know Brooks Koepka will bring his A-game, and following his strong opening round of 66 at the PGA Championship, Koepka brought that A-game into his post-round interview.

Describing his plan for the week, Koepka explained his non-scientific approach and golf fans were left in no doubt who that comment was in reference to after the 4-time major champion’s cheeky smile at the end.

“I feel good, I’m playing good. There’s no reason to be scientific with all the numbers and stuff like that on TrackMan, so I just go out and play.”

And as expected, the sly dig got Twitter users excited…

Anyone else hoping to see Brooks and Bryson in a two-ball over the weekend?
