Florida man sues Tiger Woods and Joe LaCava over incident at 2018 Valspar

Published

on

A Florida man is suing Tiger Woods and his caddie, Joe LaCava, claiming that the latter intentionally shoved him at the 2018 Valspar Championship causing him injury.

As first reported by the Tampa Bay Times, the Pasco County resident attempted to take a selfie with Woods on the par-3 13th hole during the third round of play at the Valspar where he alleges LaCava pushed him “causing him to stumble and fall into the crowd of spectators”, per the lawsuit.

Though the lawsuit does not go into specifics, it is claimed that the shove caused Brian Borruso to be hospitalized – both losing the ability to earn income and also aggravating an existing health condition. Borruso is looking for more than $30k for damages caused.

Borruso’s attorney, Josh Drechsel, stated that the PGA has refused to cooperate and claims that the incident has been caught on camera.

Woods has been named in the suit as LaCava was employed, managed or directed by him at the time and according to rule 10.3 of the USGA’s rules: “A player is responsible for his or her caddie’s actions both during a round and while play is stopped under 5.7a, but not before or after a round.”

    there needs to be some kind of punishment to those filing these rediculous lawsuits. the judge should be allowed to issue a reprimand for wasting everyones time.

    Any stupid court or judge that allows this utter and total abuse of the legal system is DISGRACE

    This clown and his lawyer should be sentenced to 50 years to put a stop to this nonsense

      It’s the client’s attorney’s responsibility to insure that a case has merit, if it has none they shouldn’t move forward. Cases without merit cases can lead to repercussions for the lawyers involved, such as fines and removal of licence.

      Tiger’s caddies shouldn’t put their hands on anyone, it’s not their jobs to physically move the crowds, Steve Williams was pretty heavy handed at time as well, but I think he was more verbal than physical.

      From what I’ve read there are witnesses confirming (audio/video) that the guy was pushed, so who knows what will happen.

    Giving this oxygen is terrible, GolfWRX. You shouldn’t do that.

GolfWRX Classifieds Spotlight (05/29/20): Ping, Byron Morgan, Mizuno Copper!

Published

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member BassCatchr77 – Ping i500 / iBlade combo set

They might look like blades all the way through the bag, but this is not your average combo set. Ping i500s are some of the hottest hollow irons on the market and the iBlades are way more forgiving than they appear. This is like a sneaky speedster family sedan with 500HP under the hood.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Ping Combo Set

Member Ngin24 – Byron Morgan Milled Putter

Most people know the big names when it comes to milled putters, and although Byron Morgan hasn’t yet broken into the mainstream doesn’t mean he doesn’t make an awesome putter! This is a milled Anser shape with clean lines and no alignment aid on top – they don’t get cleaner than this.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Byron Morgan Putter

Member DirtyBirdie2 – Copper Mizuo MP 20’s

This is one of 500 sets released worldwide and safely being stored in their original box. The asking price might seem high but when you consider the rarity of these irons ( and how freakin’ cool they look ) can you really put a price on them?

But Chuck did perform like a Hall of Famer.

This can’t be ignored…

Great swing pro, but wait…..that’s your backyard?! Where did I go wrong? SMH. I’m chipping whiffle balls into a kids’ sand bucket.

Jacklin coming in HOT….

I mean yes it’s shocking he only won one major…..but he’s Sergio, he’s still a legend.

The Steve Stricker Invitational is canceled…

I watched this tourney for one reason….to watch Steve Stricker (Top 10 all-time faves) take a victory lap. YouTube highlights here I come.
