Mini-tour player records a 57…with a bogey

Published

on

59’s don’t come around too often. There have only been 11 of them in PGA Tour history. 58’s? Even more rare. Only one of those. 57s? Let’s start with zero in official PGA Tour history.

Well, David Carey did apparently shoot a 57 in 2019 on the “Alps Tour,” but point being, anytime someone goes this low, it immediately has our attention.

What we saw yesterday from Jharad Hack at Las Vegas Golf Club was nothing short of unbelievable. We needed to see the scorecard to believe it.

Since Las Vegas Golf Club plays as a par 72, that is a whopping 15 under par, with a grand total of 26 strokes on the front nine! Did we mention he made a bogey?

    70 course rating, 120 slope rating, less than 6350 yards at 2000 feet elevation. Furyk’s 58 at 73 course rating, 131 slope rating, and more than 6800 sea level was better.

Chamblee: ‘Ian Poulter is the worst ball-striker at the Ryder Cup…by a lot’

Published

on

The Ryder Cup gets underway this morning at Whistling Straits, with the foursome pairings announced Thursday evening.

From those fixtures, Brandel Chamblee has questioned the European pairing of Ian Poulter and Rory McIlroy, calling the former by far and away the worst ball-striker of the 24 players in Wisconsin.

Speaking on Thursday evening, Chamblee said

“Pairing up Rory McIlroy with Ian Poulter, that’s a gamble. Maybe it pays off. But this is not the same Ian Poulter from 2012 that blitzed the US in that fourth session. 

This is a guy who has only played sparingly over the last couple of Ryder Cups and wasn’t even playing for Europe in 2016. And of the 24 players here, he is the worst ball-striker…by a lot.

While raising his doubts, Chamblee did concede that the Englishman is an excellent putter with the ability to stun at this year’s Ryder Cup. However, the Golf Channel analyst brought up the last time Poulter and Mcilroy teamed up back in 2018 in Paris, where they were defeated 4&3 by Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.

“This is a beefed up golf course. Now, he’s a fabulous putter. We know he can stun. But that’s a bit of a surprise. 

And the last time that duet went out, Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter, was the last team event in the fourth session in Paris and they got run over by Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth, incidentally in foursomes play as well.”

Poulter and McIlroy went 1-1 when teamed up together in Paris, and while Chamblee’s comments may upset many fans of Team Europe, Poulter did finish the 2020/21 PGA Tour season ranked 180th in Strokes Gained: Ball Striking.

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.
