Tiger Woods reveals what he plans on serving at the 2020 Masters Champions Dinner

Published

on

Tiger Woods will host the 2020 Champions Dinner in six weeks, and the 15-time major champion has this week unveiled what he plans on serving at the event.

In a conference call to reporters on Tuesday, the 44-year-old revealed that he is going back to his 2006 menu for the occasion – with fajitas and sushi being at the core of the meal.

“Being born and raised in SoCal, having fajitas and sushi was a part of my entire childhood, and I’m going back to what I had in 2006. So we’ll have steak and chicken fajitas, and we’ll have sushi and sashimi out on the deck, and I hope the guys will enjoy it.”

As for dessert, Woods is considering taking it back even further to when he first hosted the Champions Dinner back in 1998 and serving milkshakes to those in attendance.

“I’m debating whether or not to have milkshakes as desserts because that was one of the most great memories to see Gene Sarazen and Sam Snead having milkshakes that night in ’98.”

Tour pro reimburses gamblers after marathon exchange with heckler on social media

Published

on

Talor Gooch missed the cut at the Valspar, and as a result, found himself having to deal with a heckler on Twitter. In a wild twist, however, the confrontation then evolved into a situation where Gooch decided to reimburse gamblers who had bet money on him last week.

“3 bogeys in a row u are so bad @TalorGooch,” tweeted @VinkolaJokic to kick things off, to which Gooch replied, “Did you bet on me?”

This set off a 6-hour marathon of back and forth Tweets, with Gooch ready to reimburse the troll for his gambling losses.

However, the heckler had other ideas and challenged the golfer to a $50k mini-golf match in New York, which Gooch was ready to accept if proof of funds were provided.

Unsurprisingly, the proof of funds never came putting an end to the online back and forth.

However, when users realized that Gooch was prepared to reimburse the heckler’s gambling losses on him, they decided to chance their arm and see if Gooch would be so generous to deliver them a Venmo payment.

The answer? A resounding yes, with the 29-year-old reimbursing gamblers in a bold and generous move.

Pretty cool, but Gooch might want to stress that it’s a one off move considering the number of DFS golf gamblers growing by the week.

What GolfWRXers are saying about ‘idiot fans’ on the PGA Tour

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the fans at recent tournaments, with many believing that even with limited capacity, the shouts and screams appear more obnoxious than ever.

WRXers have been having their say and offering up some solutions to curb the behavior in a year where plenty of players have already been heckled at events.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JimmyC59: “Anyone shouting, “You da man!”, “In the hole” (on a par four), or “mashed potatoes”, should be permanently banned from attending any golf tournament.”
  • Ghostwedge: “Tournament officials need to cut off the beer sales early, spend a lot more on crowd control. A PGA tournament isn’t an NFL game. You want to yell stupid s*** at the players and other fans? do it from the parking lot.”
  • jonsnow: “I wish it were as simple as cutting off alcohol sales earlier, removing the offenders, etc. All worthy ideas, but I think it’s a cultural thing; it’s a natural outgrowth of the current attention-seeking, social media-driven, me-focused society at large. The fact that it’s pathetic doesn’t make it any less omnipresent.”
  • Need4spd: “You guys all sound like you’d be a lot of fun at parties. Listen, you’re never going to catch me yelling anything loud enough to be heard on camera, but is it really that abhorrent? You guys make it sound like every hole on The PGA Tour is 16 at The Waste Management.”
  • Go Cougs: “I despise social media, but I seem to remember these shouts just as frequently before its prominence. I think it began with a guy at a tournament telling his buddies watching on tv at home, ‘Hey, I’m going to yell ‘Mashed Potatoes!, Baba Booey, or what have you. Listen for it.’And the rest is history.”
