‘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.

      “Douchebags” who rightly expect a spectator to keep his mouth shut when a player is hitting. Got it.

    Ahh the real Paul Casey. He always looks cheerful and happy on camera, but I met him as a 13 year old and this was exactly how he was. I don’t doubt the fan was unruly, but this is a side of Casey I’ve seen before…

      What “side” are we talking about? The one that finally gets tired enough of a spectator yapping in the middle of a shot in a match-play tournament that he finally tells the guy to shut it?

    I wish fans were not back. They are the worst part of it. All the yells were back, that weren’t missed at all.

      If you like “no fans” then watch the LPGA (I do)…& try not to fall asleep. But I do despise the “bababouy”. “mashed potato” & the always present “in the hole” yells. They occur because some idiot tells his buds he gonna yell that on a particular hole.

    Shut it and entertain me, Paul. We haven’t forgot your spite of Americans, tea-drinking Brit.

      What a freaking snowflake. If you’re referring to the comment he made a decade and a half ago, he was joking. Get over it and stop talking like a douche. Spectators should keep quiet. It’s unbelievable a player has to remind anybody of that.

    remember when Paul Casey said Americans are fat stupid idiots and that Tom Lehman was a bad pick as captain for the Ryder Cup

      Danny Willet made the hot dog comments about Americans. There are few pro golfer that I despise, he’s one of them for that reason. I didn’t know PC said the same, which is a shame. But PC is justified in this instance, there’s no excuse for heckling.

      • Rod Clarke

        Sorry but that’s wrong! It was Danny’s brother and frankly they were very funny comments.

        See, there you go showing the world what an idiot you are. WRONG, that was Willet’s brother. get your facts straight before hammering the keyboard in Anger..

        Casey was joking when he said what he said. It was all in fun. Some people took it seriously, which is awfully ironic.

        Hahahaha so well said. I mean seriously guys. America is fat and mostly stupid. Look at most of these comments.

    • emncaity

      May 31, 2021 at 2:22 pm

      Except he never said Americans were “fat stupid idiots.” But sure, go on and form a whole opinion about somebody based on a myth.

MLB All-Star sued for $64k by North Carolina Country Club



Booking tee-times has often been a contentious issue even for the most private of clubs, but San Diego Padres star, Will Myers, has found his frustrations leading to the courts.

According to a recent report by The Charlotte Observer, Myers and his wife, Margaret, joined Carmel Country Club in ‘lockdown’ year 2020 after issues with his previous club, problems that included availability of tee-times due to high demand.

Per the report, after paying 20 percent of his $80,000 initiation fee, the remainder was to be paid annually over a period of four years. However, with golf experiencing a boom during the year of the pandemic, tee times were again hard to obtain and in December 2020, the Myers’ resigned and cancelled their membership.

In response to his resignation, Carmel then charged the couple for the remainder of the fee – $64,000 – and set a date of December 2020 for the amount due. They then took to the courts in March 2021 to find the couple countersuing three months later, stating they had suffered |knowing misinterpretations and commissions.”

Court filings state that the MLB star “found it almost impossible to find a tee-time and frequently could not even use the driving range.”

Carmel denied all accusations and would go on to say that the COVID-19 pandemic “immediately and overwhelmingly altered the lifestyles and available leisure activities for all members of the club.”

The trial is set for February 2022.

The Match V: Brooks vs Bryson – Full Viewer’s Guide



Those with long memories might recall the halcyon days of television’s Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf, a series of two or three-player stroke-play ‘match’ events that showed many of the top golfers of the day in light-hearted but competitive action over 18 holes.

Players such as Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson, Karrie Webb and Annika Sorenstam were some of the miked-up stars that thrilled the crowd and viewers with their comments throughout the hour or so of recorded coverage.

Not in their wildest dreams could they envisage that 27 years later, we would get to a point where two golfers meet in what has become a huge grudge match, with both Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka ramping up the hate over the past few months and even further over the past couple of days.

Cartoon hate or real? Either way, this made-for-TV match has the golfing public eagerly awaiting the best of-12 hole bout and here is the outline of how, when and what this is all about.

The Match V: Best Bets

Winner of The Match V: Bryson DeChambeau -125

For these types of events, I typically tend to side with the underdog due to the variance that can occur in a single match. With the match being only 12 holes, the outcome becomes even more unpredictable. However, there are a few reasons why I still believe that the value lies with DeChambeau at a slight -125 favorite.

For starters, DeChambeau has experience in this type of event. Aaron Rodgers and Bryson appeared in the match last year and defeated Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson quite convincingly. After a slow start, Bryson really appeared to gradually settle in as the match went along and should have a better idea of what to expect this time around.

Additionally, DeChambeau is just playing much better golf than Koepka recently. In their past 24 rounds, DeChambeau ranks 9th on Tour for Strokes Gained: Total whereas Koepka ranks 121st of 150 qualified golfers. Brooks is also coming off of back to back missed cuts at Mayakoba and The Houston Open.

While it is entirely possible that Koepka’s killer instinct kick in as he attempts to take down DeChambeau (who I genuinely believe he truly dislikes), I am siding with the guy who is simply a better golfer right now as a slight favorite.
