Luna Perrone, a young cancer patient, got to meet Tiger Woods over the weekend and along with posting a beaming photo of the two together, has posted some extremely poignant and inspirational words.

“I got to have a quick chat with Tiger Woods this weekend when I bumped into him at the soccer fields! He told me to “stay strong” which has always been my goal! Stay strong physically and mentally and inspire others to do the same! No matter what you are going through YOU GOT THIS!!!”

Luna has been diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma (a rare form of bone cancer) and met Woods at her soccer match over the weekend. Woods is a big fan of the sport and encouraged the positive 10-year-old to ‘”Stay Strong” as she continues her battle against her condition.

Per Luna’s GoFund me page:

“Ewing’s Sarcoma is a rare form of cancer, treatment for it is very expensive, daily shots are upwards of $4000.00 per dose.  Luna will need months of in hospital and outpatient chemotherapy in addition to the blood and immune boosting shots.”

Currently, the page has raised $106,601 out of its $200,000 goal. You can donate to Luna’s page here.

    Sucks to see children sick like this. Hpefully they reach their financial goal so they can focus all their energy and attention on recovery.

Tour pro gets rock “stuck” in club, prompts strange ruling

Published

on

Kiradech Aphibarnrat embarked on quite the adventure on the par-five 12th hole at Wentworth Golf Club during the third round of the European Tour’s BMW Championship.

The four-time European Tour winner hit his tee shot into a drainage ditch, and elected to play the ball as it was. Aphibarnrat was able to advance the ball close to 10-yards out of the hazard, getting doused by water in the process.

As Aphibarnrat emerged from the hazard, he noticed that there was a stone embedded inside his club. The Thailand native promptly called an official.

The issue was that Aphibarnrat was having difficulty removing the stone from the club, yet according to Rule 4.1a, he was still allowed to use the club for the remainder of the round.

Aphibarnrat still managed to par the hole as part of a third round two-over par 72. He proceeded to finish the tournament one stroke back of eventual winner Billy Horschel.

Billy Horschel upset with Ryder Cup phonecall snub

Published

on

Billy Horschel had a little bit of extra motivation last week ahead of the European Tour’s flagship event, the BMW Championship. After claiming a one shot victory yesterday at Wentworth, the six-time PGA Tour winner commented:

“I was a little–there was a little added motivation this week. I thought I was going to get a phone call. Didn’t think it was going to be a phone call that said I made the team. But it was a phone call saying, hey, you had a great year, obviously we talked, but we’re going to go in a different direction.”

Horschel elaborated: “I didn’t get that phone call. I was a little upset. I was a little ticked. Gave me a little bit of fire in my butt or my are, to be nice to really not show anything, but you know, just gave me a little fire, not that I needed it. So there was a little more added motivation this week for that.”

Earlier this week, U.S. Ryder Cup captain Steve Stricker revealed his captain’s picks of Daniel Berger, Harris English, Tony Finau, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, and Jordan Spieth. In his Wednesday morning press conference, he also mentioned that he called “a lot of guys” to let them know they hadn’t been selected.

This follows a bit of a familiar storyline for the Florida native, who went on to win the 2014 Tour Championship directly after not being picked for the 2014 U.S. Ryder Cup.

Horschel’s Ryder Cup dreams still have a sliver of hope, as Stricker did mention that he has “some extra names in the envelope,” in case Brooks Koepka should not be able to compete due to a recent wrist injury, or another team member is forced to withdraw due to Covid.

Phil Mickelson’s response to summary of his season is absolutely perfect

Published

on

Phil Mickelson has been no stranger to speaking his mind on social media, and a recent tweet from Golf Channel’s Shane Bacon discussing the bizarreness of the PGA Champion’s 2020-2021 season was the perfect opportunity for another vintage Mickelson one-liner.

Mickelson makes the key point that he won one of the four biggest golf tournaments of the year, and while the rest of his season was marred with inconsistency, it’s the big ones that get remembered.

Bacon appreciated the comment of Mickelson, as did the rest of us, posting on our Instagram “The King remain the King”. Which sums it up nicely.
