‘$3,100!’ – It won’t surprise you who the best tipper on Tour is according to two tournament employees

Published

on

Although recently hitting the headlines for his controversial comments about the supposed “greed” of the PGA Tour, Phil Mickelson is proven to be one of the least greedy players when it comes to tipping staff during PGA Tour events.

In a video tweeted by @CaddieNetwork, two tournament employees who have often ran into Mickelson raved about his generosity. The two men give Lefty a huge shoutout for his tipping prowess, praising him for a $3,100 tip, and even a $1,500 tip if he misses the cut.

Check out the video below:

Interestingly, a twitter user replied to the tweet tagging Mickelson and said: “My guess is Brandel doesn’t get tipped going forward ??”.

This comment appears to be referring to the recent scathing comments that Brandel Chamblee made against Mickelson’s “greed” accusation of the Tour, and it prompted an intriguing response from Phil.

It will be interesting to see how this story develops going forward and when we will have insight as to what Lefty is referring to here.

‘We just won’t play’ – Major champ says PGA Tour pros could strike if LIV ban is overturned

Published

on

There’s a potential legal battle looming with players who’ve been suspended by the PGA Tour expected to challenge their suspension in court.

On Wednesday, former major champ and current Presidents Cup captain David Love III was asked by Sky Sports what he and his fellow PGA Tour players would do if they were asked to play alongside LIV players if they get their suspensions overturned.

The former Ryder Cup captain said that there’s the nuclear option that they “just won’t play”.

“We understand that we make the rules on the PGA Tour, and the commissioner is enforcing our rules and we don’t want those guys playing, coming and cherry-picking our tournaments. We hold all the cards. Not Jay [Monahan], Seth Waugh or Mike Whan. We say to the FTC and to Washington, “no, we support the rules. We don’t want those guys playing. We don’t care what the courts say’.

“The nuclear option is to say ‘fine, if they have to play in our events we just won’t play’.”

While Love’s comments are genuine and stem from a passionate anti-LIV stance, his suggestion seems extremely unlikely to come to fruition. A handful of stars may have the luxury of boycotting the PGA Tour, but plenty of players who play on Tour depend on playing golf as their livelihood.

Considering the suspension being lifted may end up being court mandated if it happens, it also doesn’t make much sense to punish the PGA Tour over what the court decides.

Bryson on PGA Tour ban: ‘I personally know it’ll get figured out’

Published

on

Last night, Bryson DeChambeau made an appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight”.

There were plenty of interesting comments made in the interview, but one of them in particular would permanently change the landscape of golf even further if it were to come to fruition.

When Carlson asked DeChambeau “The PGA Tour has said anyone who joins [LIV] will be banned from the PGA Tour. You’re 28 [years old], are you worried about that?”

“No, I think it’ll get figured out in the end. I personally know that it’ll get figured out whether it’s legally or whether they come to the table and work out terms. I definitely think it will all wash itself out in the future, pretty shortly,” the former U.S. Open Champion said.

It’s unclear whether DeChambeau has been told by Greg Norman that he’s spoken with the PGA Tour or whether the conversation will be court mandated, but he seems very confident that conversations will be taking place in the immediate future.

Many players and fans have been pleading for the two sides to work something out over the past few months. With more superstars such as Cameron Smith and Hideki Matsuyama having been rumored to join LIV after the PGA Tour season ends, finding a solution as soon as possible may be the priority.

Bryson provides entirely confused pizza analogy to describe current situation between PGA Tour and LIV

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau has been one of the poster boys for LIV Golf after signing for the breakaway tour earlier this year for a reported sign-on fee of over $100 million.

The 28-year-old has underwhelmed on his opening two starts with LIV, mainly thanks to a hand injury that has yet to heal fully, with Bryson’s finishing 10th and T31 in his first events.

According to John Daly, who was interviewed recently by Piers Morgan, Bryson told the 2-time major champ in regards to LIV:

“It’s the greatest thing on earth. We still play a pro-am with two pros and two amateurs, which is what it should be. You’re done in four hours. And we play for a lot of money which we deserve to play for.”

After a busy week that saw Bryson also play alongside former President Donald Trump in a Pro-Am at Bedminster, DeChambeau followed in the footsteps of LIV CEO Greg Norman with an appearance on FOX News for an interview with Tucker Carlson.

Unsurprisingly, he had plenty to say on the new league, and also unsurprisingly, the Californian provided a moment that could only be attributed to Bryson.

Speaking on the LIV series, Bryson broke down the situation and conflict between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf, and he used a rather unusual, flawed and confusing pizza shop analogy to do so.

“You have a pizza shop that’s been in existence for 50 years, and all the customers go to it, and it’s a great product. All of a sudden, a new pizza shop opens up, and they start paying the customers to come eat at their place, and that pizza is potentially a little bit better of a pizza.

And then, all of a sudden, that original pizza house goes, ‘If you go over there, we’re banning you from ever coming back to our pizza shop.’ What’s wrong with that economic model?”

Obviously, the analogy didn’t fly with many golf fans, with popular Twitter personality TweeterAlliss saying: 

“Dear Bryson’s pizza shop analogy is rather flawed, one would rather be an employee of said shops rather than a customer to have a like for like situation.”

While Twitter User Accts_Cowboy pointed out how the analogy doesn’t make any sense as to why LIV Golfers would want to then return to the PGA Tour:

“Also if the new shop is ‘better’ why would you want to come back to the old one anyway? What a load of tripe as usual from Bryson.”

Just another day in the life of Bryson DeChambeau.
