Bryson apparently slipped and injured himself in Saudi while playing another sport

Published

on

Having missed a trio of weekends recently due to injury, much commentary surrounded the training regime of the World Number 11, Bryson DeChambeau.

Bryson is having none of it, however.

On his own Instagram account, the 2020 U.S Open winner posted –

“Everyone needs to chill. Yes, I hurt myself but not from hitting it far. I slipped and fell this week on Tuesday unfortunately. I know people probably [won’t] believe me, but that is the truth. I will be back stronger and better than ever in a few weeks. Thank you for your concerns and keep hitting bombs!! I will be back.”

Whilst his only real response to eager reporters asking about his withdrawal at the Saudi International was a resounding ‘no’, much speculation surrounded his health after also withdrawing from the Sony Open and missing the cut at Torrey Pines.

Asian Tour regular Rory Hie (@swinganalksis2.0) shed some light on our Instagram page, however, explaining that Bryson actually injured himself playing Ping Pong.

Bryson won’t be teeing it up at this week’s Phoenix Open, with the rest hopefully proving beneficial for the 28-year-old.

    “will be back stronger and better than ever”

    He will be giving Brooks the “wedgie of his life”

    I believe this. Just like I believed Johnson’s “slip” at Augusta.

Collin Morikawa left ‘freaking out’ after clubs land on airport tarmac

Published

It seems as if there’s been an uptick of cases with professional golfers losing their luggage on airlines this summer.

Last month at the Genesis Scottish Open, Viktor Hovland’s clubs were lost by the airline. He didn’t have his clubs or clothes in preparation for the event until Ping made a custom set for him on site at The Renaissance Club.

Last week, Irishman Shane Lowry’s clubs were lost on his way to the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina.

This week, there are once again issues with a golfer’s clubs. On his way to begin the 2022 FedEx Cup Playoffs, Collin Morikawa tweeted a picture of his TaylorMade clubs in an ominous position.

Luckily for the two-time major champion, the potential nightmare was solved, and someone got his clubs back to where they needed to be.

Caddie forced to wade through nettles after bizarre blunder at Women’s Open

Published

on

In just her second professional start, 22-year-old Louise Duncan finished inside the top-20 of the AIG Women’s Open, but the Duncan team experienced far more than just her first proper paycheck.

In 2021, the Scot won the Women’s Amateur Championship by a record margin (9&8) before nabbing a top-10 at the Women’s Open at Carnoustie, the low amateur winning the traditional Smyth Salver.

It’s a big leap to the paid ranks, but the £73,000 prize is early justification for the move, an amount that might well have just upgraded her future wedding to fiance Jordan Hughes.

After her second round 73, Duncan admitted it was, “a bit of a grind” but having been assured of making the cut, said that, “If it’s a nice cheque we’ll probably just go abroad and get it over with. That sounds bad – sorry Jordan. What I mean is we’ll be able to go abroad and have a good one.”

The round wasn’t without its humor either, with caddie Dean Robertson playing his part.

As reported in The Telegraph, former European Tour winner Robertson has been a large part of Duncan’s success, his experience as player and coach providing mentor-ship to the darling of the Scottish crowd.

However, during the second round when Sophia Schubert handed him a ball, he thought the American had just found it and wanted him to get rid. So he threw it over his left shoulder.

Schubert was actually wanting her ball cleaned and, because of Robertson’s actions, was now facing a stroke-and-distance penalty. So, despite wearing shorts, he did his valiant duty, scaled the wall and went searching in the scrub and nettles for the ball. To Schubert’s relief, it was a successful forage.

Duncan was pleased to see the closest member of her team having the tables turned on himself.

“I was like, ‘oh, no, Dean, tell me you haven’t just done that?’,” Duncan said “But it was an honest mistake and quite funny. He is always telling me to stop being an idiot and to calm down, so maybe he deserved that one.”

Sergio Garcia and Greg Norman’s WhatsApp messages reveal talk over ‘shallow threat’ from PGA Tour

Published

on

There would never be much pleasantry surrounding the lawsuit filed by 11 players suspended by the PGA Tour for jumping ship to the LIV series.

Evidence given by both sides is going to be under intense scrutiny by lawyers and the media alike, and it started last Friday when Golf Magazine’s Dylan Dethier tweeted a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation between Sergio Garcia and LIV CEO Greg Norman.

The exchange, ‘Exhibit 6’, is part of the upcoming lawsuit, and dates from 11th and 12th of February 2022, some four months prior to the inaugural LIV event at the Centurion Club, England.

The conversation starts with Garcia, seemingly nervous about the upcoming series, asking, “how things are going with the League cause it seams (sic) like a lot of those guys that were loving it and excited about it last week, now are shiting in their pants.”

Norman doesn’t seem bothered by the “white noise” and assures the Spaniard that he will “reach out” if Garcia has names.

He then comments that, “if the Tour was going to ban players they would have already,” before telling Garcia that it would be “fantastic,” if he can “get them or any player threatened to get it in writing.”

When Garcia goes back to Norman, he tells him, “it’s official,” and that the Tour are banning players for life. Again Norman is unfussed, replying that it is a “shallow threat.”

Sadly, this looks like being a very long-running saga, with much dirty laundry, and the domination of headlines where others would surely be preferred.
