‘Patrick Cantlay p****d me off’ – European Ryder Cup rookie hits out at U.S. star

Published

on

As the dust settles on the 2021 Ryder Cup, European rookie Shane Lowry has hit out at one of USA’s brightest stars for their behaviour during Sunday’s singles.

Speaking to PaddyPower on an Instagram Live video, the 34-year-old revealed that Cantlay “p****d” him off on the 8th hole during their matchup on Sunday.

“Yeah, he (Cantlay) p****d me off a little bit on the 8th, to be honest. I was lining up my putt and he was riling up the crowd which I didn’t think was great. In Rome, we’ll hopefully win and win in a different style, that’s how I’m looking at it.”

During the interview, Lowry revealed that Cantlay wasn’t the only U.S. player who got under his skin in Wisconsin and took aim at both Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau for their demonstrations on the greens over a couple of short putts not being given.

“For a start Bryson Dechambeau’s putter shaft is about four feet long so it was definitely not a gimme. Justin Thomas did the same thing and then I did the same thing but purely because Justin Thomas did it. 

They made me hit a putt from literally 18 inches on the first so I did the exact same thing as Thomas did just because I was annoyed with the picture I’d seen of him that morning.”

Lowry admitted that he himself got involved in the perceived gamesmanship during the week and also revealed his disappointment with the 19-9 record-breaking defeat.

“I wasn’t giving them anything last week because I was getting booed. I was playing with Tyrrell Hatton on Saturday afternoon and he wanted to give them a couple of balls and I said, ‘No, let’s just let them see the ball in’. It was a bit of gamesmanship from me as well.

I was just Trying to annoy them and get in their heads as well but it obviously didn’t work. I’m disappointed with the scoreline because I think we deserved more than that because we were a great team, a great unit. We just didn’t perform as well as we should’ve.”

    Don’t mind this back and forth. They should be bickering and getting it more exciting. Stop with the polite boring golf stuff nobody wants to watch. We should encourage this. Build up some excitement for Rome!

    I always chuckle when I see people from the USA call others ‘tubs’ or ‘fatty’ 🙂

    They are probably even worse than Scotland for being overweight and unhealthy!!

    one should talk as his celebratory actions were a bit exuberant after making a putt on 18 and throwing his putter to the ground. Note: celebrate when you win the whole damn thing.

    Same moronic narrative with the sawft euros. Win or lose, their feelers get hurt.

    Euros, your players and your fans are no different from the U.S. side.

    Outside of a couple wins, the US squad had to deal with the Euros gleefully subduing their opponents. Gamesmanship is part of the history of the Ryder Cup ( i.e. Seve). Do you think the Americans have forgotten how Jose Maria danced on the green at Muirfield Village after the Euro win? What goes around comes around and hopefully the US will win a few back to back Cup meetings.

    He riled up the crowd? He made the putt and celebrated. Did you see Rory went crazy when he made the putt at Hazeltine? That bothers you? Wait a bit until the crowd calm down and try to make your putt next time.

    The USA won and won well. The USA had a very good team. BUT it was needed as the Ryder Cup was becoming as pointless as the Presidents Cup – a one sided exhibition match as Europe have won 7 on the last 10 matches. Whichever sides wins in Rome, all players will be treated with the respect they deserve, something that was in short supply at Whistling Straits.Roll-on 23

      Win or lose the Euros act like catty women.

      The only reason the US ever loses is disinterest. Maybe you guys can have a couple other countries or continents join the fight against the big, bad USA? ?

    So….Seve was lauded for his “gamesmanship”, which many could construe (ala Patrick Reed) as borderline cheating.
    Now he wants to whine about losing. Boo hoo, get over yourself…

Jason Day opens up on mental and physical demons

Published

on

Jason Day’s career has been on a downward trajectory over the past few years, with the former Would Number 1 now in danger of missing out on multiple majors in 2022.

The Australian is ranked 79th in the world and is only exempt for the 2022 PGA Championship, and ahead of the CJ Cup this week, Day spoke frankly about his struggles.

“I’m a different player than what I was five years ago. I’m a different person. I have different priorities. I can’t work as hard as I used to just because of my body, and I’m OK with that.

I’m not trying to do the exact same thing that got me to No.1 in the world. I know that if I did that, I wouldn’t get there because my body wouldn’t handle it. So I’ve got to somehow be able to kind of learn as I go along and try and adapt as best I can.”

Day’s back has been a source of frustration for the Australian, who has had to pull out of multiple events in the past with injuries. Ahead of the CJ Cup, the Aussie revealed that he’d be playing just one more event (after CJ Cup) before January, meaning a long break from competitive golf was on the cards.

“I’m playing this week and I’m scheduled to play the Shootout, and then the next tournament I’ll play is Farmers Open. So I guess that’s three events in five, six months, something like that.

(I’ll be]) focusing a lot on my mind, focusing a lot on my body. Both are very much important, like both body and mind. Trying to work on myself personally, which is something that we don’t do enough of as professional athletes.

So I feel like things are progressing in what they need to do, but, you know, the level — the play that I’m expecting this week, I’m here just to see how things have progressed swing-wise. What that will, you know, produce result-wise will be interesting to see how it goes this week.”

Day also opened up on the stress that returning to his best form has caused him and how he plans to get back competing at a high level while enjoying himself more.

“I guess obviously we all battle demons, you know what I mean, and especially as golfers. It’s such an individual sport even though we do have, as individuals, we do have teams around us, but you’re out there battling yourself.

Try and discover that golf is not the thing that defines me, you know what I mean? If I play bad golf, as long as I give it everything that I can, then it is what it is, the results are the results. Not to always have golf on my mind is what I’m saying. I just don’t need to have that stress and that anxiety of actually going and performing because everyone else thinks I should be performing the way that they should.

So there’s a lot of expectations not only on the golf course on myself, but also have other people around you and whatnot. I feel like these last two years I’ve grown a lot as kind of an individual because I have stopped battling these things and you learn to go, okay, well, I’m either going to quit the game because I don’t want to feel like this and it’s not motivating and I’m struggling with it, or how do I handle it and tackle it head on and be able do it in a healthy way where for the next 10, 15 years, if I want to, I actually enjoy myself on the golf course while competing at a high level.

I think the biggest thing is do I want to climb that mountain again. I’ve got to take it easy and I’ve got to be smart about it because if I’m not smart about it, then it could be short-lived.”

High school sophomore records a historic 57 in conference championship

Published

on

59s don’t come along too often, only 11 have been recorded in PGA Tour history. 58s are even more rare. 57s are practically unheard, but that’s what Macy Pate, a Reagan High School sophomore, recorded in the Central Piedmont 4-A Conference championships on Tuesday.

Pate’s tournament winning and record breaking performance occurred at Bermuda Run Country Club in North Carolina. Pate came out of the gates firing, with a front nine 27. Knowing she needed to shoot one-under par over her final three holes to record a 59, Pate birdied all three.

As the number-one ranked girls player in the state, we should say we aren’t entirely surprised, but 57 is in an entirely different stratosphere. Pate’s historic round shattered the NCSHAA scoring record. We have a feeling we will see more of her in the future.

99-year-old golfer hits into group ahead, records a hole-in-one

Published

on

There’s nothing worse in golf than the group ahead playing at a snail’s pace. With that being said, we do not condone hitting into them as an acceptable solution.

We may be willing to make an exception however for Hugh Brown, a 99-year-old Australian golfer, and instant hero.

On the 145-meter par 3 fifth hole of the blue nine at Indooroopilly Golf Club in Queensland, Australia, with a driver in hand, Brown recorded hole-in-one number two of his golfing career.

The shot was met with yelling from the group ahead, but it was hard to stay mad at Brown for long given that his tee-ball found the bottom of the cup. Check out how it all went down courtesy of 9News Queensland.

Brown’s last hole in one came 38 years ago when he was at the tender age of 61. Just two months away from his 100th birthday, the Aussie legend still plays golf three times a week.
