5-time LPGA major winner DQ’d after first round of LA Open

Published

on

Yani Tseng has suffered another setback in her return to the LPGA Tour, with the 5-time major champion being disqualified after the first round of the LA Open.

The news was first reported by GolfDigest, with the 32-year-old who shot a ’round in the 80s’, neglecting to sign her card following another disappointing day on the course. In a text to the publication, an LPGA spokesperson said

“The error was found during the standard post-round scorecard review process, when it was discovered that she had neglected to sign her scorecard. Failure to certify hole scores is a breach of Rule 3.3b(2), which states it is the player’s responsibility to certify their scores.”

This marks the third occasion in the past five months that a player on the LPGA Tour has been DQ’d for failing to sign their scorecard.

As for Tseng, it’s been a sorry start to the year, with the 15-time winner on tour now yet to break 75 in a single round so far in 2021.

    I don’t understand, isn’t the first thing tour players do after a round is for them to head to the scoring trailer? Or do they hit the bar first? Major fail both on her and her caddie. smh

Tiger Woods posts first photo update since accident

Published

on

Tiger Woods surprised fans yesterday evening with an update which included a photo showing the 15-time major champion looking in great spirits while on crutches.

From the photo, it appears that Woods’ lower right leg is in a cast, with a full leg brace running up to his knee.

Woods was standing alongside his dog Bugs in the photo, with the caption:

“My course is coming along faster than I am. But it’s nice to have a faithful rehab partner, man’s best friend.”

Earlier this year, Woods suffered multiple fractures from his single-car crash on the upper and lower parts of both the fibula and tibia, where a rod was inserted to stabilize the area.

Woods also had screws and pins inserted to treat other injuries in the ankle and foot, while doctors sliced muscle in the area to relieve swelling in the area.

Brooks Koepka to face Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy in $250k charity match

Published

on

In a wild sequence of events last night, Brooks Koepka has decided to take on Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy in a $250k charity match with the 4-time major champ agreeing to play left-handed.

The two traded some friendly banter/trash talk on Twitter to begin before things escalated quickly, with BK making the claim he could beat Portnoy left-handed before he accepted the quick challenge from the Barstool Sports President.

 

Koepka will play for his charity foundation, while Portnoy will play for the Barstool Fund, the latter of which has raised almost $40 million to help save small businesses in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

No date or venue has yet been decided, but Portnoy has already made it clear that Frankie Borelli, a member of the Fore Play podcast, will be on his bag.

“Blake Koepka is good at golf. I was actually the first one to say that. But in general golfers are mentally weak. I am a mental Armageddon. Very different ball game.” – Dave Portnoy

Adam Scott joins Dustin Johnson in snubbing Tokyo Olympics

Published

on

Adam Scott is the latest player to opt-out of the Tokyo Olympics, with the games not fitting into the Aussie’s schedule, per Scott’s manager.

Speaking to GolfChannel, the Australian’s manager, Johan Elliot with Sportyard International, said

“With the world being the way it is, Adam is gone 4-5 weeks at a time this year during his playing blocks. With three young children at home, this time in the schedule will be devoted to family. It is pretty much the only time up until October when he has a chance to see them for a stretch of time and not only a few days/a week.”

The Olympic games fall two weeks after the Open Championship and one week before a WGC event. In 2016, Scott also skipped out of the event, citing schedule reasons and the outbreak of the Zika virus.

Scott follows in the footsteps of Dustin Johnson, who last month announced that he wouldn’t be partaking in the games due to a busy schedule and the travel requirements.

With Scott out of the picture, Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman are the frontrunners to represent Australia at the games in Japan.
