Rickie Fowler is the next in line to aim subtle dig at Bryson

Published

on

Following an impressive 64 at 3M Open to hold a share of the 1st round lead, Rickie Fowler joined the many PGA Tour pros to poke fun at Bryson DeChambeau for his controversial comments at last week’s Open.

DeChambeau infamously blasted his Cobra driver, saying “it sucks,” which prompted Cobra rep, Ben Schomin, to respond, “It’s really painful when he says something that stupid.”

Discussing his Thursday round with the media, Fowler commented on how pleased he was with his efforts off the tee.

“That was something that was kind of holding me back from making birdies, moving forward last week. I drove it very poorly Friday and Saturday. It was not my driver’s fault. Had to.”

Who can blame Fowler for getting in on the action, especially since his game seems to be trending in the right direction.

The five-time PGA Tour winner is in search of his first victory since the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open. He’s off to an awfully strong start.

    Is RF still using the cavity backs? I heard for the Tour Edge rep that he’s signing with them and done with Cobra.

      Tour Edge has lost its appeal for me, once they started paying players to use their clubs. Made a big deal three years ago about their Driver being $299, then the next year they sign some senior players and their new driver goes to $349, then this year a few more players and driver is $399..then all of a sudden they have a driver listed as the Pro model and it is $449 this past week??? Watch they sign some regular tour players and the driver will hit $500 or more…a little obvious where your money is going, certainly not in the club cost…

Symetra Tour pro’s clubs stolen, South Bend community rallies around her

Published

on

Symetra Tour pro, Natalie Sheary, was the victim of a particularly unlikely misfortune when her clubs were stolen out of the back of her car during the Four Winds Invitational in South Bend, Indiana.

As first reported by GolfWeek’s Beth Ann Nichols, Sheary had left her clubs in the back of her Nissan Armada during a late dinner. The next morning, she discovered that her window had been smashed and her clubs and tour bag were gone.

Per the report, first, Sheary called her insurance company, State Farm, who told her to buy replacement clubs and save all the receipts. Callaway was unable to get her anything in time, but Edel Golf created and shipped her three wedges overnight. Sheary was forced to to cobble together the rest of her set through Dick’s Sporting Goods and extra clubs from other generous Symetra Tour pros. Sheary received a driver from UPS just eight minutes before her tee time.

While Sheary unfortunately missed the cut, it was an admirable showing from the South Bend community. Members of the South Bend Country Club brought her extra clubs to the course, a local pawn shop owner sold her replacements, and fellow Symetra players helped her duct tape the back window of her car with sheets of black plastic. She was able to park her car inside a volunteer during the tournament, and SafeLite arranged to fix her window.

Life on the Symetra Tour is not easy, and Sheary has used GoFundMe to help pay for Q-School and the all the costs of travel. On top of this, Sheary also gives lessons and caddies during the offseason. While this served as another obstacle for the 32-year old Wake Forest grad, Sheary remained optimistic. “I was able to leave with a smile on my face,” Sheary said of her tumultuous experience at the Four Winds Invitational.

Sergio Garcia’s wife fires warning to ’embarrassing’ U.S. Ryder Cup fans

Published

on

The Ryder Cup is often a highly charged competition, but Sergio Garcia’s American wife, Angela Akins, has fired a warning at those fans who cross the line at Whistling Straits this weekend.

Speaking to CNN, Akins revealed that back in 2016, she took umbrage with a group of fans who were directing “horrible” things at her husband:

“It went too far at Hazeltine when I was following Sergio, and I ended up having a go at a group of guys who were barracking him. I said to them: ‘I’m here supporting the European team, I’m an American, and you’re embarrassing me’. The people around us joined in and said; ‘Yeah you’re embarrassing us too!”

Akins continued

“I said to the guys, ‘I want to see American fans being better than that,’ and they said okay, then later on they saw me. They’d figured out who I was, and they came over and gave me a hug and apologized.”

The American will be cheering on the European side once again this week at Whistling Straits and is hoping that the crowd leaves the insults at the door: “I understand cheering for your team but let’s leave the insults out.”

Akins’ husband, Sergio Garcia, is the record points scorer in the biennial competition (25.5 points) and will be looking to add to that total when the event gets underway this Friday.

Steve Stricker urges fans to not ‘cross the line’ at Ryder Cup

Published

on

Rewind back to Hazeltine in 2016, the last time the Ryder Cup was on American soil, and Rory McIlroy was forced to ask if a fan could be removed for his aggressive and abusive behavior.

U.S. Captain Steve Stricker commented to the media this morning that he was hoping for a more respectful performance from the U.S. patrons. “It’s a Ryder Cup. These fans have been pent up for a long time and they’re going to come out and get behind their team. It’s going to be loud, and we expect it to be loud, but again, we ask for people not to cross that line and be respectful of both sides.”

According to Ian Poulter, a veteran European Team member and Ryder Cup villain, “The U.S. fans have been brilliant so far. They’re wishing me well. Not too well, but they’re wishing me well, which is quite nice. That hasn’t always been the case.”

So far so good, but lest we forget, it’s still only Wednesday. The 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup kicks off on Friday, September 24th at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
