Brooks Koepka shows off new Off White Air Force 1’s!

Published

on

Brooks Koepka took to Instagram on Monday, flashing an unreleased pair of Off-White Air Force 1’s. He simply captioned the post “Virgil” which is an ode to the late founder of Off-White and creative director of Louis Vuitton.

Speaking of Louis Vuitton, these sneakers are also designed in part by the luxury brand. The sneakers, dressed in forest green, feature Louis Vuitton imprints throughout and standard Off-White features.

Koepka is no stranger to fancy footwear, on and off the course. He was photographed in 2019 wearing a custom pair of Off-White Nike Air Max ’90s on course. When asked about them, he responded with “it’s fashion, bro.”

According to sneaker outlets, a limited 200 pairs of the Off-White LV Af1 will be released via raffle via Sotheby’s. The raffle will be running from January 26th to February 8th, with a starting bid of $2,000 a pair!

With an inventory of 200 pairs and a starting price of $2,000, we can’t even begin to imagine the resell value on these, if anyone manages to get a pair!

We’d imagine the AF1 isn’t the best shoe to play 18 in, but never say never… right?

    Brought to you by the Nike sweatshops in China.

    I wonder how much the 10 yr old kid who assembled this shoe got paid.

    Koepka doesn’t care about child slave labor as long as he gets his collection going.

‘Go **** yourself Shark’ – Major champ’s scathing attack on Greg Norman

Published

on

It’s been a rough week for Greg Norman, and it hasn’t got much better over the weekend.

Winner of the 1990 PGA Championship, Wayne Grady has ripped into compatriot Greg Norman on social media, saying, “Greg is only about Greg.”

Norman, two-time winner of The Open Championship, has been headlining in the golf media for many months, his leadership of the Saudi Golf League, now the LIV Golf International Series, becoming further embroiled in rows between players and their respective authorities.

During interviews to further highlight the cause of the series, set to open at the Centurion Club in London on June 9th, Norman appeared to excuse the human rights record of Saudi Arabia, saying, “we all make mistakes.”

The comments appalled many, whilst Amnesty International called his comments “wrong and seriously misguided.”

However, Grady, co-runner-up with Norman when play-off losers behind Mark Calcavecchia at Royal Troon in 1989, did not hold back in such a diplomatic manner.

In the message posted on Facebook Grady makes two comments. The first is that Norman should stop saying ‘the PGA’ as opposed to ‘the PGA Tour’, the second that the Chairman of the LIV organisation has been “trying to take down the (PGA) tour for 30 years.”

Grady lets it all fly as he informs readers that, “the admiration I had for him (Norman) for what he has achieved and what he did for Australian golf is gone.”

He continues the rant, “For him to try and trivialize what the greats before him did to grow and create what the PGA Tour is today is an absolute disgrace.”

In conclusion, the 64-year-old two-time winner of the Australian PGA Championship, tells Norman that, “I went to Jack Newton’s memorial service yesterday and was surrounded by true professional golfers who believe in ,loyalty and history. GFY Shark.”

In a week that should see the joyful start of the second major, the PGA Championship, the impending release of Alan Shipnuck’s unofficial autobiography of Phil Mickelson, as well as speculation as to who has signed to play the first LIV event, looks like taking some of the limelight away from a tremendous looking field at Southern Hills.

That, for many, is unfortunate.

Greg Norman takes swipe at R&A on social media over Open Championship snub

Published

on

Despite convincing nobody but himself that Greg Norman was going to play at the 150th Open Championship, the two-time champion has since stated that he is “disappointed with their (the R&A) decision.”

As continually confirmed by the ruling authorities, “The entry terms and conditions for The Open stipulate that a champion must be aged 60 or under or have won the championship in the previous 10 years to be exempt from qualifying. That remains the case for The 150th Open and we have no plans for any additional exemptions.”

At 67 years-of-age and with his last victory being 29-years ago, it would have taken an extraordinary turnaround from not only the rules committee, but also tradition, for him to get in.

However, demonstrating that he believed he was going to be offered a place, the Shark has taken a not so subtle swipe over the decision with a recent Instagram post from St. Andrews captioned:

“Prepping for no reason. But still one of my all time fav golf courses to play @thehomeofgolf.”

In a recent interview with Sky Sports, the Aussie legend stays away from the current furore over the LIV golf series, stating his application “wasn’t anything else other than a sincere ask.”

“I’m a two-time Champion Golfer of the Year.” said Norman. “It is St Andrews, one of my favourite golf courses. I’ve always sung praises about the R&A my entire – being the champion golfer of the year, right, I’ve supported them as far as I could possibly support them as a representative of being the holder of the Claret Jug.”

He continued, “So I actually thought my son and I talked about this before I even came on board with LIV and I’ve spoken to, you know, former heads of R&As to understand ‘okay, what is the process?’ And I knew that they had changed the date. But I also know other players over the age of 60 have been given an exemption, right?”

Norman’s latest interviews confirm the feelings he showed when talking to Australian Golf Digest, when commenting, “I’m disappointed with their decision, particularly given it is The 150th Open. I have been a staunch proponent of the R&A since 1977 and a proud Champion Golfer of the Year–twice.”

The interview with Sky concludes this topic with his reasons behind the ambitious request in the first place:

“So hello duh it’s a simple writing a letter to Martin Slumbers asking: ‘Hey, as a two-time Open Champion Golfer of the Year. I love St. Andrews. I love to be there for that.’ It was a full 100% sincere ask.”

Max Homa reveals his dream celebrity fourball group

Published

on

Max Homa is fresh off his fourth victory on the PGA Tour, having seen off the challenge of Keegan Bradley to claim his second Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday.

The Californian has seen his star rise over the past few years, having just broken the top 30 in the Official World Golf Rankings while remaining one of the most popular players in the sport due to his humorous activity on social media.

This week, Homa was a guest on GolfWRX’s TG2 podcast where he spoke about a number of topics relating to his latest victory and his equipment setup.

The 31-year-old also got into his dream celebrity fourball, and it’s fair to say that the answers show just how big of a sporting fanatic he really is.

For those who follow Homa on Twitter, his opening choice of Green Bay Packer’s QB Aaron Rodgers will come as no surprise. The two good friends teamed up together at the 2020 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and Rodgers even sent a congratulatory note on Twitter to Homa following his win on Sunday.

For his second selection, Homa turned to NBA star Steph Curry, who the golfer has repeatedly praised for his attempts to grow the game of golf, with the most recent being Curry’s introduction of a new junior golf tour.

Finally, Homa plumped for Tiger Woods, and when co-host Brian Knudson remarked that it was quite a group of talented golfers, the Wells Fargo champ stated: “You don’t want to be chasing golf balls all day.” Good point, Max.

Who would make your dream celebrity fourball, WRXers?
