View this post on Instagram

Hi everyone, I want to clear up any confusion from my earlier post. My words were only directed at my frustration of not playing well in a Major and at the unfortunate bounces we all get while playing this crazy game called golf. ????I didn't mean it in a mean way at all. Obviously just hasn't been the course for me the last few years, but some girls are playing great and I wish them the best of luck this weekend! I am truly so thankful for the amazing support of Evain & Rolex and all of the sponsors associated with this event and giving us the opportunity to come here. I also would like to thank all of the volunteers and fans that make this tournament possible!. Evian is a beautiful place and I always enjoy spending time in this part of the world, it just wasn't meant to be and hey that happens !??????????? I will be out at the course this weekend working on my game, so please come out and support the event and say hello! #Evian #Rolex @evianchamp

    Sergio needs to be hit with a fine big enough to actually hurt – one of these times. What spoiled little brats these multi-millionaires can be. He has a future in politics!

    Sergio is a complete dick and I hope he got at the very least a big fine for that. Something is wrong with this man and I hope he gets it worked out because his behavior is unacceptable.

Bryson DeChambeau flies home from Wells Fargo early…before realizing he made the cut

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau’s round of 73 on Friday at the Wells Fargo put him comfortably outside the cut line and facing his first missed cut since February.

Conditions soon toughened up at Quail Hollow, however, and Bryson’s two over par score through 36 holes managed to squeak him through to the weekend.

The only issue? Bryson had assumed he had missed the cut and had already made his way back to Dallas.

The 27-year-old took to Instagram this evening to poke fun at himself, posting a photo of him at his home gym in Dallas with the caption: “Headed back to Dallas to get a quick workout in…see ya tomorrow Charlotte.”

On our Instagram, I may or may not have taken this tongue in cheek comment literally before editing the caption on our post (semantics, it’s Friday night etc.).

But Bryson confirmed in multiple posts on our Instagram that he had, in fact, convinced himself that there was no chance of him making the weekend.

If DeChambeau goes on to win from here, it’d likely be one of the wildest PGA Tour wins in recent times, and there’s no better man to pull this off!

Why Justin Thomas ‘doesn’t really like’ that rangefinders will be used at PGA Championship

Published

on

For the first time, the PGA Championship will allow players to use rangefinders during tournament play this year, but it’s not a prospect Justin Thomas is excited about.

Speaking ahead of this week’s Wells Fargo, Thomas revealed that he’s unlikely to use one, stating that he doesn’t “really like them” and believes that the technology takes away the importance of caddies.

“I think it takes away an advantage of having a good caddie that maybe goes out there and does the work beforehand as opposed to someone, especially now between the yardage books, the greens books and range finders, you technically don’t even really need to see the place or play a practice round. You can go out there and know exactly what the green does, you know exactly what certain things are on certain angles because you can just shoot it with the range finder.”

PGA of America president Jim Richerson stated earlier this year that he expects the use of rangefinders to improve the pace of play at the event. However, JT doesn’t see that being the case at Kiawah Island later this month.

“I certainly don’t think it’s going to speed pace of play up at all unless you have a scenario where you do hit it on another hole or some kind of crazy angle where it would take you a long time to get a yardage. At the end of the day, Kiawah Island isn’t some kind of course where the greens are going to be really soft and you just see pin, hit pin. It’s going to be, okay, I have 193 hole, we have 174 front, I need to probably land this probably 180 to 182, a little wind off this way.”

The PGA Championship begins on May 20 from Kiawah Island.

Rickie Fowler shares his thoughts on ‘interesting’ Super Golf League

Published

on

While Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas have ruled themselves out of joining a Saudi backed Super Golf League, others have had their interest piqued and are waiting to hear more details on the proposals.

Phil Mickelson has said that he is intrigued by the idea, and now Rickie Fowler has revealed his interest in the potential breakaway Super Golf League.

“It’s definitely interesting. I think there’s a lot that needs to happen for it to even move forward of any sort, and at the same time I think competition can be a good thing. 

I do think that the PGA Tour is the premier place to be playing against the best players in the world. Could it get better? I’m sure this wouldn’t be coming up if someone didn’t think that there were ways that certain things could be better.”

Though PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan has threatened that any players committing to a breakaway tour could face expulsion from the PGA Tour, it hasn’t stopped players voicing their interest in the SGL. For Rickie, he’s happy to wait and see what develops.

“For a super golfer league of some sort to move forward, it would definitely need at least a handful of guys to be going that direction, or committed or whatever it may be. I don’t know of anything like that right now.

I can’t say that I’m in, out or whatever. I still think the Tour is the best place to be. We’ll see what happens, but I’m happy where we are.”
