LPGA star DQ’d while in contention at Kia Classic



In Gee Chun’s week has ended early at the Kia Classic following a disqualification for a scorecard error.

The multiple major champion shot rounds of 68 and 71 at Aviara Golf Club to pull within four strokes of the halfway leader Inbee Park before being kicked out of the event for failing to sign her scorecard.

In a statement, the LPGA said

“Following the second round of the Kia Classic, In Gee Chun was disqualified for failing to certify her scorecard. The error was found during the standard post-round scorecard review process, when it was discovered that she had neglected to sign her scorecard.”

Per Rule 3.3b(2), it’s a player’s responsibility to certify their scores and failure to do so results in disqualification.

Chun now heads to the first major of the year, the ANA Inspiration, where she finished T18 in 2020.

    That rule looks outdated to me. That’s something because I’m 88 years old.

    These days it isn’t any surprise given the fact that the kids in school aren’t even taught how to write in cursive? So what do they do print their name…………LOLOLOL

    The powers that be trying to show that they are still relevant to the game… While also proving why they have no place in a position of authority… Rules need to update to reality, not the way a bunch of old angry white guys think things should be…

      The realty is you get done playing and go over the card and sign it. I don’t know what the issue is.
      not the way a bunch of old angry white guys think things should be. < What is this supposed to mean? As a member of the human race I don't think it matters what the skin tone is or was that made the rules. Please seek help for your racism…………..

    I think a suspension is in order. 10 tournaments at least.
    After all, we are talking about our sacred traditions.

    You sign your card after your round. Period. End of story. Whether it’s antiquated, stupid or silly is irrelevant. Until things change, failing to sign (attest) your card is a DQ.

      “Whether it’s antiquated, silly, or stupid is irrelevant.”

      Actually all of that is entirely relevant. If you understand the origin of that particular rule, you can see that it’s all of the above and time to be expunged or way the best least altered.

    I get the self-regulating tradition of golf and I agree with most of it. But the days of needing professionals to keep their own scores–and not make a fatal math error–is long gone. Every shot is tracked, measured, and usually videoed. There is simply no need to keep the score like some weekend country club tennis match.

    DQ-ing someone for this is just stupid. Stop it.

      Why wasn’t the card audited before leaving the scoring trailer? So the person she handed the card to before exiting didn’t notice the lack of a signature? Even so, it’s still on the player to sign the damn card. Just like it is the player’s responsibility to make sure they only have 14 clubs in the bag.

    Signing my name was the only way I got points on the sat? Or was it the act? 🙂

Inside Bryson’s wonderfully whacky Saturday night ‘bro session’ 



Bryson DeChambeau didn’t advance to the knockout stages of last week’s WGC Match Play, but if you think that meant a weekend off for the 27-year-old, then think again.

In a likely tongue-in-cheek ‘bro session’ video uploaded to TikTok, DeChambeau is seen working out with his friends, and they don’t hold back, with the Californian using his 2020 U.S. Open trophy as motivation.

Check out the video below.

It’s a sneak peak into the workout habits of Bryson and it looks as if him and his friends get as much fun out of the intense sessions as possible. In an interview with Men’s Health last year, DeChambeau revealed how tough his workout sessions are, saying:

“If I trained in the mornings, I wouldn’t be able to go out and play golf that day. I play golf, and then I see working out in the evening as my way of taking care of any aches or pains that need fixing.”

The next time Bryson will tee it up will be at Augusta National, where he’ll be looking to get his hands on the green jacket for the first time.

‘Shut it!’ – Paul Casey puts disrespectful spectator in his place



The fans were out in force over the past week in Austin and with it a heckler who made a terrible decision to interrupt Paul Casey over a shot.

During the first round of matches, footage has emerged of the Englishman backing off a shot before a visibly irritated Casey turns to a spectator in the crowd and says:

“Oy mate, shut it, pal. He (caddie Mark Fulcher) asked you nicely a minute ago. Now I’m asking you. Shut it. Okay?”

Fulcher then adds, “It’s the last time we ask, otherwise you’re out of here. And I’ll be looking forward to sending you actually.” to which Casey says to the spectator “He will, so shut it”, before Fulcher finishes by saying: “I don’t know why you’re smirking because it’s not big and it’s not clever.”

The incident can be seen below.
