Collin Morikawa’s PGA Champions Dinner menu was a big hit

Published

on

The PGA Champions Dinner may not have the same profile as the dinner at the Masters, but it’s still a very cool tradition.

Funnily enough, 2020 champion and this year’s host Morikawa didn’t even know about the tradition until this week.

“No. (know about the traditional dinner) But I’m glad it is. It was so cool to talk to a bunch of champions, not just champions that I know, but just guys that are older that aren’t on Tour anymore, just to kind of hear stories from them. It’s a really meaningful night.”

The 24-year-old’s selections comprised of main dishes of either fried chicken or fish, giving players what Morikawa says the option to either go healthy or not.

Starter 

Harding Park Clam Chowder or Cobb Salad

Entrees

Pan-seared Cobia with lemon caper sauce or fried chicken with four-cheese creamy mac n’ cheese

For the table to share

Platters of sliced porterhouse, parmesan creamed spinach, roasted Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, asparagus.

Dessert

House-made ice creams (Vanilla, chocolate, banana), platters of warm chocolate chip and red velvet cookies.

Wines

Sauvignon Blanc, Nautilus Estate

Chardonnay, Ceritas

Merlot, Duckhorn

Cabernet Sauvignon, Caymus

Per Morikawa, the sliced porterhouses in particular went down a treat with the former champions:

“Yeah. Knowing me, I love food, so it was kind of how much food can you just throw at everyone. But no, I gave people the option of fish or fried chicken, so either you go healthy or you don’t go healthy.

And then I just threw — we had a bunch of porter houses on the table. Everyone was loving that, just to kind of pick on. It’s a great family style, and obviously going through COVID and everything, you’re so used to takeout boxes — maybe I should have given everyone a takeout box and just told them to go eat in their room. That would have been new.”

    For someone who identifys as asian (Hawaiian) his dinner resembled Dustin Johnson’s bland one.

      As a white person, nobody cares what you are guy. And Collin identifies as an “American,” born and raised in Southern California, not sure why you leftist freaks are so obsessed with race ethnicity and skin color…. it’s quite an odd obsession (fetish)…

Brooks Koepka claims Bryson started feud and ‘went back on his word’

Published

on

Both Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau are in action at this week’s Travelers Championship, with the two seemingly further away than ever from burying the hatchet.

The two have been openly quarrelling for the last couple of months in an ongoing rivalry that has captured the attention of more than just golf fans.

Ahead of this week’s event, Brooks Koepka spoke to media where he shared his version of the genesis of their feud, claiming that Bryson “went back on his word”.

“I thought it was just interesting when he walked up to my caddie and told Ricky that if I had something to say, to say it to his face. I thought that was kind of odd. Don’t walk up to my face, say it to my caddie.

When we had that conversation we agreed on something and he went back on it. So, you know, if you’re going to go back on your word I don’t have much respect for that.”

The 31-year-old has also been speaking to ESPN Sports Center host Matt Barrie ahead of this week’s event, where he said that he has “definitely got the better” of Bryson and that it’s unlikely the two will be settling their issues over a few drinks.

“There’s not much to talk about. Everything that’s gone on, it’s been one of those things. This whole thing started basically because of him so you know, I’ll leave it at that. I don’t see us having dinner or drinks or Michelob Ultra just to settle it.”

Butch Harmon offers club-throwing advice in funny video

Published

on

The influx of club-throwing on tour isn’t to everyone’s taste, but in a fun video Butch Harmon has offered up his advice for those who plan to partake in the act in the future.

“OK, for those of you who are temperamental and like to throw clubs; not saying I agree with it or don’t agree with it because I’ve thrown a few. But there’s an art to it.” began Harmon.

The art? Location and convenience for the retrieval.

“Number one, never throw the club sideways or backward because you have to go get it. Always throw it on the line you’re going to walk on.”

Harmon then broke down the technique, which includes his top-tip of always throwing underhand,

“But then the technique is important; you want to have a nice windup and a nice load through the club. The madder you are, the more adrenaline you have, the further you’ll throw it. This one will probably only go about 50 yards, but here’s the technique. Good wind up, move into it, and always underhand.”

Check out Harmon’s advice, plus his perfect club throw in the video below!
