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.

    He’s not as bad as Lance Armstrong but the guy’s got issues for sure.

    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????

      Me – 0 Tour wins, 0 Majors. And Reed is still a cheater.

      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

        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.

      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
        at Golf and everything else.

The most ‘Instagrammed’ golf courses in the world

Published

on

The Swilken Burn, Hogan, Nelson and Sarazen bridges, ‘that’ Van De Velde 18th at The Open, just some of the millions of sights that are perfectly captured in time by golf professional and amateur photographers alike, but what are the most picturesque?

To answer that, and much more. money.co.uk issued a report in October that offered their comprehensive guide to the ‘ultimate’ course, whether that be based on green fees, most popular during the pandemic or indeed the ‘most Instagrammed’.

Analyzing the hashtag #golf, the publication also recorded relevant posts from TikTok and came up with some incredible numbers.

Instagram posts featuring the above tag numbered 28.5 million, whilst the increasingly popular snap video site numbered 15.3 billion views with the reference ‘golf’. Not all, of course, about the scenery, but still demonstrating the universal appeal of the game we all love and popularity during the recent months of the pandemic.

Leading the way and, therefore, potentially the most popular and photographed was TPC Sawgrass, home of The Players championship. No doubt the par-three 17th hole contributed much to the 50,168 Insta posts that saw the Ponte Vedra course record some 17,500 posts ahead of Bandon Dunes and Pebble Beach.

2025 Ryder Cup venue, Bethpage Black, receives around 21,000 posts whist the UK isn’t left out, with St. Andrews predictably heading the way in sixth place (15,065 posts) ahead of Royal Portrush (7th) and Royal Birkdale in ninth with 10,160 references.

With the host of the 2021 PGA Championship, Kiawah Island, bringing up the top-10, the total amount of posts for these 10 courses alone was around 220,000, some 8,000 less than the amount of check-ins on Facebook for Sawgrass alone.

Interestingly, the report lists The Stadium Course as costing circa £400 per green fee, some £350 more than the maybe more public-friendly Bethpage Black. Whether that means golf folk are prepared to pay more to experience a ‘more scenic’ track is open to interpretation.

Make yours by viewing the report at Money.co.uk.

Tiger hitting fairway woods on range at Hero fuels PNC Championship entry speculation

Published

on

To go alongside his first media briefing since his car accident back in February, Tiger Woods was spotted taking full swings with a fairway wood at the Hero World Challenge yesterday.

The Tiger updates have been coming frequently in the past week, and this seems to be another significant development, especially with rumors circulating around his potential involvement in this month’s PNC Championship.

Woods seemed to downplay the idea of him being able to compete with the world’s best again, but perhaps he was just tempering expectations for his latest comeback.

Will Tiger tee it up alongside Charlie for his comeback event? Let us know what you think!

‘This f—ing ripped shirt. Jesus!’ – McIlroy snaps at reporter after question on Dubai shirt incident

Published

on

When journalists see a bite they usually go for it, and whilst there will no doubt be continual questions directed at Tiger Woods after the recent press conference at his own Hero World Challenge, the small field of 20 were never going to get away with it if there was a story to clamp on to.

Cue Rory McIlroy after his recent ‘ripped shirt’ episode, something that perhaps was worth a minor comment at best in Rory’s view. The journalists present at the event didn’t see it that way though.

At yesterday’s presser, one reporter commented, ”Nice shirt, it’s in one piece” to receive the biting comeback from McIlroy: ”It is. Another joke you tried to make that’s not funny.”

Throughout the briefing, the world number 8 gave succinct thoughts on a variety of current issues, including his own form and the Saudi debate, before one more reporter tried their luck by asking what happened to the shirt.

”I went to the pro shop, bought a new one, threw that one in the trash. I mean, this f—ing ripped shirt. Jesus!”

Let’s hope that’s the end of RippedShirtGate, an episode that only heightened the respect many have for the dedication of the four-time Major winner, but one that clearly is generating plenty of interest from media members.
