Kevin Na accidentally drops major hint that Tiger Woods will be 2022 Ryder Cup captain

Published

on

Kevin Na appeared on Sky Sports UK this week to discuss golf and his ambitions for when play resumes, but in the process, accidentally dropped a massive hint that Tiger Woods will captain the U.S. at the 2022 Ryder Cup.

The 36-year-old was discussing his desire to qualify for this year’s Ryder Cup when he let slip the news that, to his knowledge, Woods will be the 2022 captain for the contest in Rome.

‘My goal is to make the Ryder Cup team this year, and I know the following Ryder Cup is in Italy and the captain I believe is Tiger Woods, so that’s another thing that I’m looking forward to.’

A surprised reported asked Na had that news been confirmed, before an amused and panicked Na backtracked a little on the claim saying he heard it from one of Tiger’s friends.

“I heard rumours! Am I starting a rumour? That’s what I heard. Am I not supposed to say anything? I don’t know, I’ve heard rumours! I won’t tell you who I heard them from, but it wasn’t from him. It was from one of his friends!”

Na, who has never appeared at a Ryder Cup before, is currently 28th in the Ryder Cup standings for this year.

Smylie Kaufman explains brutal 1-foot miss at Monday Qualifying

Published

on

We’ve all heard stories about how cutthroat Monday qualifying is each week, but Kaufman’s tale is a real heartbreaker.

Kaufman missed out on a playoff by one stroke, and the crucial one stroke needed to make up the ground was a missed 1-foot putt.

The Alabama native took to Twitter on Tuesday explaining the missed 1-foot putt, which he put down to: “not realizing my ball accumulated so much water and sand” after a rain delay.

Golf fans were perplexed by the incident, with many not sure if Kaufman had failed to mark his ball, but it’s more likely that the putt was his second after the restart. Just brutal luck.

The 29-year-olds fall from grace has seen him drop to 1530 in the World Golf Ranking, having made just one cut worldwide since 2019.

PGA Tour professionals are imperious at looking cool under pressure, but in reality, they aren’t immune to high moments of stress.

Thanks to Whoop’s partnership with the PGA Tour, now us mere mortals can all see exactly how the best are feeling.

The most stressful moment for Rory McIlroy at Quail Hollow last week came on the 72nd hole when he hooked his 3-wood off the tee dangerously close to the water.

Per Whoop Live, the Irishman’s BPM (Beats per Minute) spiked to 140 following the tee shot. It settled back to 115 as he addressed his approach to the green but once again rose dramatically following his putt to win, with his BPM hitting a remarkable 151.
