Brooks Koepka snapped multiple sets of irons in anger at himself before Phoenix win

Published

on

Brooks Koepka broke a two-year winless drought when he triumphed a couple of weeks ago in Phoenix, but it’s not the only thing the 30-year-old snapped over the past couple of months.

Speaking before the Genesis, Koepka revealed that he was so upset with his form that he snapped two sets of irons over his knee at home in his living room after missing the cut at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico in December, and then did so again after missing the weekend at Torrey Pines.

“I snapped two sets of irons after playing (the Mayakoba Golf Classic in December) and then after Torrey, and I don’t really do that. It was in the living room. I walked right into the house and just (snap) right over the knee.”

The 30-year-old also told media that due to the frustration of his lack of form on the course, he didn’t leave his room at Torrey Pines for “about 30 hours.”

“I was so mad at myself. Didn’t want to talk to anybody. I was really agitated, really pissed off. Sometimes you need that. Sometimes you just need to not reset but really think about, ‘all right, hey, this is what I’ve got to do,’ and I did it.”

Koepka will be looking for back-to-back wins when he tees it up this week at Riviera.

    Koepka’s tough guy act is laughable.

    At least he broke them at home. The tour van people would get pretty tired of him.

Justin Rose hits epic shank during round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published

on

Hitting a shank is one of the more mortifying moments a golfer can have, and while it may be a common feature in a lot of player’s weekend rounds, it’s not often you get to see one from a pro – but day one at Bay Hill was different.

Justin Rose was the man in question who hit the shank and did so early on day one when faced with a long bunker shot.

Thank’s to PGA Tour Live, viewers tuning into action early on Thursday got to see the shank in all it’s glory, and the epic sound of the ball hitting the hosel is not to be missed.

Rose made bogey on the hole but put the shank behind him and stiffed it from a greenside bunker just a couple of holes later.

Billy Horschel snaps back at heckler at Bay Hill

Published

on

Fans are back this week at Bay Hill, and with it, the odd comment from those outside the ropes to those inside.

On day one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Billy Horschel was the target of a fan who decided that he’d give his expert opinion to the 5-time winner on the PGA Tour, telling him that he had read a putt badly.

Horschel took his time after the shout from the fan but then fired back at him, saying: “There’s a reason why I’m on that side of the ropes, and you’re on that side. I think my talent level is just a touch better.” 

Check out the incident in the video below.

It isn’t the first time the 34-year-old has put a fan in their place at an event either, as one person found out a couple of year’s ago at the Zurich Classic.

Published

Hop on to social media during a live sporting event, and emotions are spilling over, but when it comes to golf, the prominent feeling is often anger and frustration.

That is down to gambling, and according to a new study from OnlineGambling.Ca, golf supporters are the angriest on social media, with 42% of all tweets about the sport being classified as an angry comment.

The study also found that cricket and ice hockey fans show the most love for their team, with 38% of their social media posts being filled with love. Basketball fans seem to be the saddest with their teams’ results, with 38% of reactions being unhappy.

If you have ever gambled on golf or been on social media during an event, the results are probably less surprising to those that haven’t!
