Jack Nicklaus says Bryson-Brooks feud is driven by media

Published

on

Ahead of this week’s Memorial Tournament, host Jack Nicklaus has weighed in on the Bryson-Brooks saga, which he feels is media driven.

The feud has escalated in recent weeks, primarily because of a leaked video showing Brooks’ disdain for the golf scientist; however, the 18-time major champion doesn’t believe there is as much animosity between the two as others.

“If a feud is there, my guess it was probably more media driven than by Bryson or Brooks. I don’t think either one of them are driven in that direction. It gets in the news and all of a sudden it’s there.

Could I imagine playing with social media the way it is today? It would drive you crazy. I don’t care what you do, you’re not right or you’re not wrong. You got a side to everything and everybody debates everything.”

The Golden Bear also compared the situation between DeChambeau and Koepka to Arnold Palmer and himself back in the day, revealing that they both had each other’s backs despite the odd feud.

“Did we have arguments with guys? Sure. We all had arguments. Arnold (Palmer) and I were the best of friends but we would have a feud every once in a while. Arnold and I 99% of the time agreed on everything that should be good for the game of golf.

We didn’t agree on some things, but that’s okay. But every time I needed support, Arnold had my back and every time he needed support, I had his back. In the end, I don’t think you would find Bryson and Brooks to be any different.”

    For the 4,256th time, Ol’ Jack is correct. Pay attention to the older folks kids, wisdom comes with age and experience.

Angel Cabrera sentenced to 2 years in prison for domestic violence

Published

on

On Wednesday, Angel Cabrera was sentenced to two years in prison after being found guilty of assault.

The sentence will begin immediately in a rehabilitation facility designed for prisoners guilty of crimes related to alcohol and domestic abuse.

The 51-year-old was found guilty of assaulting, threatening, and harassing Cecilia Torres Mana, with whom Cabrera was in a relationship from 2016 to 2018.

The Argentine was found and arrested in an upper-class area of Rio de Janeiro back in January, having spent months on the run following a claim of assault from his ex-girlfriend. His ex-girlfriend’s case was then joined by Cabrera’s former wife, Silva Rivadero, and another former partner Micaela Escudero.

Cabrera has denied all wrongdoing and intends to appeal the sentence.

Phil Mickelson reveals the top 3 regrets of his career

Published

on

Phil Mickelson has some incredible memories to look back on when he decides to hang up the club, but it hasn’t always been plain sailing for one of the fan favorites.

Lefty’s continuous cruel fortune at the U.S. Open down the years is just one of the hardships Mickelson has experienced in his illustrious career, but what about regrets?

A Golf Digest article this week by John Feinstein suggested that Mickelson ought to be a Captain’s pick at this year’s Ryder Cup despite some controversial moments at the event in the past, and it’s an editorial that has led Mickelson to reveal the top 3 regrets of his career.

Referring to the article, Mickelson listed his criticism of captains Tom Watson and Hal Sutton at the 2014 and 2004 Ryder Cups, respectively, along with hitting a moving putt at the 2018 U.S. Open as his 3 biggest regrets of his career.

In 2004, Mickelson criticized Sutton for failing to prepare his team, saying at the time: “It all starts with the captain. I mean, that’s the guy that has to bring together 12 strong individuals and bring out their best and allow them on a platform to play their best.”

Ten years later, Mickelson infamously gave a scathing assessment of Watson’s captaincy during the team press conference after the event, while at the 2018 U.S. Open, Lefty ran to hit a moving putt preventing it from falling down a false front which led to plenty of criticism.

As for the time Phil left a young Brooks Koepka hanging for an autograph (something which still irritates Brooks to this day)? Lefty had the perfect response!

Over the weekend, South African amateur player Christiaan Burke played the round of his life, firing an outrageous round of 56, which included three eagles on his front nine.

Burke was competing at Potchefstroom Country Club and began his round in blistering fashion, going out in just 26 strokes to set up the chance for an incredibly low round.

The South African added another eagle on his back nine, as he finished 16 under par for a round of 56.

As Burke plays off a staggering +8 handicap, his net score on the day was altered to 64 and despite the sensational round it does not qualify for the course record since preferred lies were in play.
