Published

on

After being charged with sexual assault, being drunk on an aircraft and common assault, Thorbjorn Olesen has been suspended by the European Tour.

The Dane was arrested last Monday at Heathrow airport after a flight from Nashville to London, and Olesen is due to appear in court over the charges on August 21.

Speaking on the suspension, a European Tour spokesman stated

“Thorbjorn Olesen has been suspended from the European Tour pending the outcome of legal proceedings. As this remains an ongoing legal matter, we are unable to make any further comment at this time.”

On Monday, Olesen’s lawyer, Paul Morris, stated that his client has been fully cooperating with police during the investigation.

“Thorbjorn has cooperated fully with the police during their investigation, but while the legal proceedings are still ongoing he unfortunately cannot comment on this matter at this time.”

    Someone needs to test this. Male & Female. Black & White.

    Sadly, this ends with a slap on the wrist and a small fine.
    .
    If it were a common person, they would end up with jail or prison time and a tarnished record that would destroy their ability to find a decent job and take care of their family. They wouldn’t be able to own a firearm. They would lose a LOT. But because this guy is a professional athlete, he’ll get off easy.

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
