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!

Golf fans react to Brooks Koepka’s wild dance moves at Sports Illustrated party

Published

on

Four-time major champion Brooks Koepka made a distinguished appearance with his fiancé, Jena Sims, at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit launch party this Saturday.

Always a stoic presence on the course, the video below of Koepka’s dance moves certainly caught golf fans by surprise.

The viral video provoked a myriad of reactions from golf fans alike. Takes ranged from, “He became one of my favorites after this video. He gives zero f*** about what you all think him on and off the course. Brooks Koepka, keep doing your thing,” to “This dude makes Bryson look cool and that’s nearly impossible.”

One thing we can all agree on is that Koepka certainly knows how to let loose when he is not in the heat of the battle.

While he turned down the chance to compete in the Tokyo Men’s Olympic Golf competition, Koepka is set to return to action next week in Memphis at the WGC- Fed-Ex St. Jude’s Classic.

Grayson Murray speaks out on alcoholism, PGA Tour’s role in helping those with substance abuse issues (Tour responds)

Published

on

In a lengthy social media post over the weekend, professional golfer Grayson Murray spoke candidly about his own battle with alcoholism and his corresponding frustration with the PGA Tour’s role, or lack thereof, in helping those with substance abuse issues.

After withdrawing from the 3M Open on Friday, Murray admitted that “he hates everything that has to do with PGA Tour life,” and stated the Tour has not once reached out to offer any “advice or help with how to deal with the life of becoming a PGA Tour pro.”

The PGA Tour responded to GOLF.com’s request for comment regarding Murray’s tweet with the following statement

“We can unequivocally say that the PGA Tour is a family, and when a member of that family needs help, we are there for him. That has been the case here and will continue to be.”

Many fans and PGA Tour pros, including Phil Mickelson, offered their support in response to his tweet.

Grayson Murray turned professional in 2015 and earned his PGA Tour card for the 2017 season. In July of 2017, he earned his first PGA Tour win at the Barbasol Championship. This season has been a more difficult proposition, as Murray has missed his last seven cuts.
