Henrik Stenson’s son shows off razor-sharp wit by hilariously roasting his father

Published

on

It appears that a beautiful golf swing isn’t the only thing that Karl Stenson has inherited from his father. Known for his quick-witted humor, Henrik seemingly has passed down that endearing trait to his 11-year-old son as well.

During the PNC Championship formal dinner, Karl’s sense of humor was on full display. While being interviewed by Peter Jacobsen, the youngest participant in PNC Championship history made some comments that had the entire dining room laughing.

When Jacobsen asked Karl if he believed Team Stenson had a chance of winning the event, he quipped: “Not the way he’s playing”. Then looked over to Henrik who was laughing.

“He’s not playing well right now?” Jacobsen asked. “No, not at all,” Karl replied.

The younger Stenson then made a remark about his old man’s temper that had everyone cracking up again: “Sometimes he can get a little angry,” Karl said, “… First time … ooof.”

Henrik responded by putting his hand over Karl’s microphone and said, “That’s what I’m thinking, now don’t say anything more here.”

The Stenson’s had a great week considering Karl was the youngest player in the field. They finished at -19, good for a share of 8th place.

Report: Greg Norman spotted following a surprise grouping on Thursday at the Masters

Published

on

Greg Norman is at this week’s Masters tournament but found himself in a situation where he had to buy himself a ticket to enter the grounds.

Speaking to the Washington Post, Norman explained why he was at Augusta National:

“I’m here because we have 13 players that won 10 Masters between them. So I’m here just to support them, do the best I can to show them, ‘Hey, you know, the boss is here rooting for you.’ ”

So who was Norman following during the opening round of this year’s Masters? Well the answer may surprise you.

Per Sports Illustrated’s Bob Harig, Norman was spotted following the LIV-less grouping of Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele.

We’ll find out a little later today whether Norman will make his third appearance in as many days at this year’s opening major.

Collin Morikawa makes surprising late putter switch at Masters

Published

on

Collin Morikawa has had plenty of success with a blade in his hands over the course of his young career, but after a lean spell on the greens lately, it appears that the 27-year-old is ready to try something new.

The California-native began the year with his TaylorMade TP Soto before switching to a Logan Olson proto last month. Now at this week’s Masters, Morikawa has been spotted with a Spider Tour X, the same flatstick that Scottie Scheffler will be using at Augusta.

The move would represent a big change, but it has been a very frustrating year on the greens for Morikawa, who will hope the TaylorMade mallet can offer him a similar upturn in fortune to that of Scheffler. In 2024, Morikawa ranks 164th for Strokes Gained: Putting, and 157th for Total Putting.

We’ll keep an eye whether Morikawa puts the mallet into action on day one of the Masters.

Dave Portnoy places monstrous outright bet for the 2024 Masters

Published

on

Fresh off of winning $2.76 million on UConn’s victory over Purdue on Monday night, Barstool Sports’ founder Dave Portnoy has just placed a massive bet for this year’s Masters.

Tweeting on Wednesday morning, Portnoy revealed that he has placed $300,000 on Scottie Scheffler to win this year’s Masters at odds of +450.

Should he win, that’d be a total payout of $1.65 million.

Scheffler is one of the shortest priced favorites of recent times at the Masters, and is looking for what would be his third win in his last four events.
