Kevin Kisner claps back at fan in hilarious way



In the first round of the BMW Championship at Caves Valley Golf Club, Kevin Kisner was going about his business as usual until a drunk patron attempted to question his strategy.

Per Twitter user @NCTattoo14, Kisner then displayed exactly why you shouldn’t do that…

The recent Wyndham Championship winner has long been known for his dry sense of humor, and in this scenario, we truly couldn’t have thought of a more Kevin Kisner response.

The Ryder Cup hopeful shot a first round even-par 71 to sit in a tie for 56th-place. He tees off in round two at 1:55 P.M. Eastern standard time alongside Max Homa and Charley Hoffman.

    The term “claps back” makes me want to “blow chunks”.

    Why not also say it was ‘epic’ or other garbage clickbait heading words… Why are a good portion of the writes for wrx so bad…

    I think Kisner just became my new favorite tour pro!

    Can you imagine if any MLB outfielder reacted to a rowdy and rude fan the same way? Yeah, it happens sometimes but most of the time they just ignore and let it go. The golfer should not have responded to the fan, and just let the tournament security or officials handle it if it got way out of hand.

    Kevin is the bomb. He might possibly be the funnest PGA pro to play a round of golf with other than maybe Phil. Of course, Phil would probably talk so much trash to you around the course you might wish you were playing with Kev after a few holes.

    The only part of the article I find offensive is the author’s use of the term “claps back”.

      You’re right, it wasn’t funny or clever.

      But birding the next 3 out of the next 4 holes was the slap.

    John Cleese has a dry sense of humour, Kisner just told a spectator to go and “fu_k themselves”! These guys know that ticket sales and commission stands are benefits to the sponsors? How many times have we heard groans from patrons at Augusta when players’ in contention lay up? Try telling them to do likewise.

    That wasn’t hilarious. It was childish.

    Put your big boy pants on and find your “ignore” button, Kisner. Seriously?

    Otherwise, just keep entertaining us like a clown in Clown World. Your choice.

    WTG Kiz. This is the only problem with allowing “some” fans back. There’s always a 15 who thinks he’s a Plus 2.

    • Brooks Cupcake

      And there’s a “+2” that plays as a 15 when it comes to full rounds

‘What’s going on?’ – Justin Thomas left frustrated with two officials over ruling at Hero



During Thursday’s first round of the Hero World Challenge, Justin Thomas called for a rules official and subsequently, a second opinion, on the par-5 9th at Albany Golf Club.

The players were playing lift-clean-and-place, and Thomas’ ball came to rest about 5o yards short of the green in an area where it was difficult to identify if the ball was sitting in the fairway or the rough. The ball had gathered some mud, so if the rules official had decided that his ball was in fact in the rough, he would have to hit a pretty difficult shot given the condition on his golf ball.

“Basically, what’s going on?” Thomas asked the official.

The official told Thomas that the change of color in the grass was indicative of the change of fairway to rough, and therefore he would have to hit his ball as it lied. Thomas argued that the grass was cut to the same length in both spots, therefore the color didn’t matter.

“But you see, what I’m saying, this is also beat down from the carts, but look at how much longer this is than this,” he said before walking over to the thicker grass. “Like see, this is the same height [where his ball was and the apparent fairway.] I totally see it’s down grain and it’s a totally different color, but … the change of the length of grass is just what kind of confused me.”

After relief was denied by the official, “JT” called for a second opinion. While waiting for another official to show up, Thomas was heard saying to his caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay, ““It’s the same exact length, this is not rough.”

When the second rules official came over, he said: “I can see the cutline right here,” and pointed to the different shades of grass that the other official mentioned.

Thomas accepted the decision.

Interestingly, announcer Paul Azinger shared his opinion that the second rules official almost never will disagree with the first rules official’s ruling.

“That second opinion almost never works,” Azinger said to Dan Hicks during the broadcast.

“Really?” Hicks asked.

“Never,” Azinger said. “Very rarely will an official go against another official.”

Data shows how much more difficult greens become as the day progresses



For many a golf bettor, betting on the first round leader of any tournament revolves around the early starters.

Even a cursory look at this week’s Australian Open shows the morning wave averaging 1.73 shots better than the afternoon players, resulting in 18 early starters finishing in the top-10 by the end of the day, including current leader David Micheluzzi.

However, over on the South African Open, the roles are reversed, with current leader Thirston Lawrence taking up one of 15 places on the front page of leaderboard for the late starters, who shot around half-a-shot less than the morning groups.

Naturally, there are many factors – wind, temperature, dew, grass-types and, potentially, overall quality of the groupings, but these are variables that can change from day to day.

Step in Lou Stagner, data lead of Arccos Golf and all-round numbers guru.

Stagner does not deal in emotion or factors that cannot be measured. It’s facts, figures and that’s your lot!

He will tell you that from the fairway, 80-yards from the pin, professionals simply don’t get as close as many believe:

On Wednesday, the man who once built a Lego model of Augusta #12, tweeted a table showing the variance in putts made by PGA Tour members under morning and afternoon conditions.

Taking stats over 17 years, the table shows an advantage to the early starters, not by much, but enough to consider.

There are plenty of places to take the stats, with a few respondents asking for a table on grass types through the day – Bent v Bermuda v POA – and that will probably turn up on Stanger’s twitter feed soon.

Of course, on a Sunday, later starters have the pressure of trying to win a tournament, which is why we tend to see flashy rounds from those a few off the pace on Payday, but it is enough to consider when trying to get that illusive three-figure first (or second) round leader.

Either way, two-time major champion, and regular tweeter Justin Thomas, decided this was his chance to get in an early excuse when he’s off late in the day.

Make of what you will. Perhaps the stats will one day include how many of these are for par saves against birdie putts, or is that too much?

Either way, Stagner continues to bombard us with stats that delight and entertain, and that can be no bad thing. Unless you are a buddy of Lou’s…

Cam Smith fumes at ‘pretty s****y’ opening round at Australian Open



After an incredible week at the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship, Cameron Smith is off to a rough start at the Australian Open. The Champion Golfer of the Year struggled to hit fairways all day long and finished his round at +1 which is eight shots back of first-round leader David Micheluzzi (-7).

Smith, who received a massive ovation from the crowd, was extremely displeased, calling his play “pretty shitty” as he went from his post-round press conference to the practice range. The 29-year-old also said it was “as bad as I’ve played in a long time”.

“I don’t think it was a mixed bag, I think it was all rubbish to be honest,”

“Maybe some delayed tiredness, maybe. I did feel a little bit foggy out there at times, but it’s not really an excuse, it’s my job to do all that stuff.”

Despite the uninspiring round, the world number three still feels as if he can get back into the event and contend.

“It’s not like I don’t know how to play golf, it was just a bit of a bad day.”

“I’ve just got a few things to clean up, I think. Like I said last week [at the Australian PGA Championship], I felt as though the golf got better every day.”

The Aussie is incredible at recovery shots and finding his way out of trouble. But if he wants to be the first player to win the Australian PGA and Australian Open in the same season since 2011, he needs to start putting the ball in the fairway.
