I wouldn't pay $19.95 for Tiger vs. Phil, but I would pay that much to watch this year's Champion's dinner.


"There seems to be some commotion in the kitchen, Gary McCord what's going on there?"

"Well Jimmy, Justine Reed is back here berating one of the chefs for not serving enough mustard on the hot dogs."
swing is irrelevant, score is everything

just say NO.... to practice swings

If McCord is at the Masters that's a real story.

It's just a matter of time until he says the wrong thing to the wrong member and becomes the first guy uninvited from the champions dinner.  Then he can add that feather to his 'everyone in the whole world is an a-hole except me, justine, and her mom' hat.

Tell us how you really feel Kiz


From golf channel
It's no secret that Patrick Reed isn't the most popular golfer on the PGA Tour. A recent quote attributed to Kevin Kisner by Golf Digest about Reed's college tenures at Georgia and Augusta State further pushes that narrative.

"They all hate him ó any guys that were on the team with him (at Georgia) hate him and thatís the same way at Augusta," Kisner said. "I donít know that theyíd piss on him if he was on fire, to tell you the truth."

Kisnerís comments are somewhat surprising, considering heís said multiple times in the past, including at this yearís Open Championship, that he prefers to not talk about other players to the press. Reed's peers have been mostly reserved when asked to elaborate on their feelings about the 2018 Masters champion, and exceptions have typically been done anonymously.

There was the Shane Ryan book, "Slaying the Tiger: A Year Inside the Ropes on the New PGA Tour," in 2016, which brought to light anonymous cheating and stealing accusations from Reed's Georgia teammates. (Reed, who denied those allegations, was kicked off the team in 2009 before going on to win back-to-back NCAA titles at Augusta State, in 2010 and '11.)

Then there was this quote, told to the New York Times by an unnamed U.S. golfer following the Reed-fueled Ryder Cup drama in Paris: "He has no clue how to play team golf. I saw firsthand how bad of a team player he was. Eleven players understood the concept of team golf and only one didnít. Unfortunately, that one proved to be too costly for the team to overcome."

Reed has avoided tough questions about his past, as well, often saying that he doesn't care what others think of him. It will be interesting, though, to hear how he responds to Kisnerís quote.

I have no love for Reed but just cannot understand the witch hunt the US golf press is undertaking on him.

He is 28yo, a major winner, a Ryder Cup stalwart and a periodic top 10 player in the world. Give him a modicum of respect.

He has made mistakes but his indiscretions in any other sport would be laughed at. The hatchet job written on him the day after his Masters win is none of our business. I couldn't care less about his relationship with his parents. Just let the guy play golf and respect his achievements and privacy.

Like to play the roll is different than revealing his true face.  Some people are better off not opening their mouth, because they are not crafty to hide their true color.

Regarding Kis, if this is what someone will actually put out to the media, imagine what the players say about Reed behind closed doors.

Surprising from Kisner.  I guess he's in touch with Georgia folks as an alum, etc. but if he was going to say something I'd have preferred he stuck with his own opinions instead of the second or third or who knows how many hand remarks.

Still, there must be some nerve touched somewhere for him to go on the record with that.

Agree the press will keep trying to get quotes like this and play it up, and Reed hasn't done himself any favors with his subsequent comments, inconsistencies, and his family's remarks.  Even though his Ryder Cup story has pretty much been contradicted by everyone who has commented (not referring to the Kisner comments), we won't see him changing it.

Just seems like the story had its cycle and needs to go away.  Probably won't unless he says something to put out the smoldering remains - won't hold my breath for that.

His Masters press conference should be interesting.

I would respect his privacy and achievements if him and his family were not constantly bashing someone to the media. Idc about his relationship with anyone either but anymore he is one step away from the Kardashians. If he shuts up and just plays golf and his family lets him just play golf its whatever then.

Seems unnecessary from Kisner, the whole world now knows Reed is a frictional character who isn't exactly popular but seems a strange thing to do to a fellow PGA Tour member, I wonder if the tour will step in.

Personally I don't mind Reed, I enjoy watching him play.

Surprising from Kisner.  I guess he's in touch with Georgia folks as an alum, etc. but if he was going to say something I'd have preferred he stuck with his own opinions instead of the second or third or who knows how many hand remarks.

Still, there must be some nerve touched somewhere for him to go on the record with that.

Agree the press will keep trying to get quotes like this and play it up, and Reed hasn't done himself any favors with his subsequent comments, inconsistencies, and his family's remarks.  Even though his Ryder Cup story has pretty much been contradicted by everyone who has commented (not referring to the Kisner comments), we won't see him changing it.

Just seems like the story had its cycle and needs to go away.  Probably won't unless he says something to put out the smoldering remains - won't hold my breath for that.

HIs Masters press conference should be interesting.

Seems unnecessary from Kisner, the whole world now knows Reed is a frictional character who isn't exactly popular but seems a strange thing to do to a fellow PGA Tour member, I wonder if the tour will step in.

Personally I don't mind Reed, I enjoy watching him play.
I agree that it seems unnecessary, but it has to get annoying being asked about it too. Maybe Kis threw it out there so theyíll stop bringing it up after they get their clickbait. However, I think he just gave some more crumbs to the press.

I think it’s Kisner who looks bad here, not Reed.  Rehashing old stories that everyone already knows, stories you weren’t even there for, speaking for others who could have spoken for themselves but chose not to.  Very sixth grade, very much the nasty 12 year old who tells the other kid that no one really likes him just to make himself feel like a tough guy.  

I know that people around here love Kisner for some reason, but this shows no class.

Yeah, this is surprising. I don't like Reed, but I thought Kisner was "one of the good guys", although I admittedly don't know much about him.

20 pages for this drama? Good lord...

I like how Reed plays. Sounds like he may be difficult to get along with. The end.

Not surprised at all what was said by Kisner, I'm surprised it came out in print!

I'd bet the comment/answer to a question was meant to be off the record. This makes Kisner look bad but he was saying what others think and now he's the villain because of a reporter.

And Reporters wonder why nobody wants to talk to them!

I have to agree.  Although every time I read a story I know something about, I am amazed at how distorted it is in print.  It's like most stories are purposefully misinterpreted by the press. Kisner should know better by now.

Did kisner go on the record and know this was going to be reported .... just wondering if this quote came from an actual reporter - player interview or if this was casual comment that reporter heard or was said to him by kisner. possibly the reporter defended reed, and kisner then spoke what he felt was the truth, not knowing the reporter would then print the quotes attached to kisner's name. sorry, but the media doesn't get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to 'on the record/ off the record'.

i have to agree it seems petty for kisner to even comment on this if asked knowing its on the record. but i have no doubt players have made their opinions known and the topic has been discussed plenty off the record.

i did see McIlroy like an instagram post related to the kisner quote. assuming rory also sides with kisner.
