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????

      What does that have to do with ANYTHING??? So now only guys that have won multiple majors can have an opinion? Literally the dumbest comment I’ve seen in awhile.

    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.

    Ageee with Chris. The spectator yelled out after the stroke was made. Not going to say you’re the man coz he’s not.

      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.

      Pew Poll shows international respect for US President has dropped from 64% with Obama
      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

Tiger at the Masters: The 3 that got away

Published

on

This time last year, Tiger Woods earned his fifth green jacket at the 2019 Masters, breaking a 14-year drought at Augusta National and completing a storybook career comeback (see Tiger Woods’ 2019 Masters WITB here).

Between his 2005 and 2019 victories, Woods gave himself several chances to reclaim the green jacket, but for one reason or another, the championship continuously eluded the 15-time major winner.

Looking back on that drought, three years in particular stick out in my mind where Woods (being the ruthless closer that he is) could, and maybe should, have capitalized on massive opportunities.

2007 Masters

A unique tournament broke out at the 2007 Masters with chilly and windy conditions meaning we would see an over-par score winning the event for the first time in a generation.

Unusually however was the fact that Tiger Woods had got himself into a fantastic position heading into the final day’s play—one stroke back of the lead and in the final group.

By the first hole on Sunday, Woods had a share of the lead. A couple of holes later, and he was the sole leader. But instead of the game’s greatest ever closer doing what he does best, we saw the first small chink in Tiger’s major armor.

Unable to keep up with the improved scoring on Sunday, Woods finished the championship two strokes behind Zach Johnson. It was the first time Woods lost a major in which he held the lead at some point in the final round.

11th hole Sunday. Woods saved par.

Summing up after the round why things hadn’t turned out the way the entire golf world expected, Woods said

“Looking back over the week I basically blew this tournament with two rounds where I had bogey, bogey finishes. That’s 4-over in two holes. The last two holes, you just can’t afford to do that and win major championships.”

2011 Masters

In one of the most exciting final rounds in Masters history, an electric front-nine charge from Woods coupled with a Rory McIlroy collapse saw the then 35-year-old tied for the lead heading into the back nine.

After back-to-back pars on the challenging 10th and 11th holes, Woods found the green on the 12th before it all slipped away. A disastrous three-putt was followed by a deflating five on the par-5 13th and an agonizing near-miss for birdie on 14.

In typical defiant fashion, Woods then flushed a long iron on the par-5 15th to give him five feet for eagle and what would have been the outright lead. But he couldn’t find the cup.

Directly following his round, a visibly miffed Woods said

“I should have shot an easy 3- or 4-under on the back nine and I only posted even. But I’m right there in the thick of it and a bunch of guys have a chance. We’ll see what happens.”

What happened was eventual champion Charl Schwartzel did what Woods said he should have done—shooting 4 under on the back to win his first major.

2013 Masters

Luck, or lack of, is a contentious topic when it comes to sports fans, but at the 2013 Masters, Woods’ shocking fate played out as if those on Mount Olympus were orchestrating the tournament.

Woods entered the 2013 Masters as the World Number One, brimming with confidence having won three out of his first five tournaments to start the year.

By Friday afternoon, Woods had cruised into a share of the lead, before crisply striking a wedge on the par-5 15th as he hunted for another birdie.

In a cruel twist of fate, Woods’ ball struck the pin and ricocheted back into the water. “Royally cheated!” shouted on-course announcer David Feherty. Nobody could argue otherwise.

A subsequent “bad drop” turned a probable birdie into a triple-bogey placing Woods behind the proverbial 8-ball for the rest of the tournament. The game’s ultimate closer should have been in the lead with two rounds to play on a front-runner’s paradise of a course; instead, he was in chase-mode. (From 1991-2012, 19 of the 22 winners came from the final group).

Woods tried to rally over the weekend, but if he didn’t think the 2013 Masters was ill-fated for himself by Friday evening, then he would have been excused to do so on the eighth hole on Saturday.

 

Had Woods’ golf ball missed the pin at 15 on that hot and humid Spring afternoon in 2013, then he not only wins, but he likely wins going away.
