Brooks Koepka ‘shuts down’ persistent autograph hunters with Tin Cup reference

Published

on

On the range at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, Brooks Koepka was getting some swings in when he was approached by some fans seeking autographs, as reported first by TMZ.

Per the report, a group of fans were looking for his autograph, and when Brooks skipped past to get to work, a man screamed at him to stop for the children.

Koepka responded saying “I gotta work. I don’t come to your job asking for your s— do I? I don’t think so”, with the line seemingly a variation on the one used in Tin Cup (a favorite of Brooks): “I’m working here. This is my office. Do I come to your office and ask you for your autograph? I don’t think so.”

The fan responded by saying,  “Oh man, that’s hardcore!” Another person adds: “Go get ’em, baby!”.

Check out the incident below, which all seems pretty lighthearted and good natured.

Koepka went on to win Wednesday’s match 3&2 against Erik Van Rooyen.

    Brooks signs a lot and chats a lot too. This looked preround and probably a hound who will flip it on eBay. Good for Brooksy.

    It’s long time for these spoiled children to be quiet and just entertain us.

    The only person in that movie worth quoting is Cheech Marin.

    I went to the Wednesday practice round of the players in 2020. Brooks spent about 30 minutes behind 18 green signing everything for everyone. It’s all timing but i was impressed with how much time he spent signing back then

Report: Jared Kushner pushed for LIV Golf media rights deal with Paramount

Published

on

LIV Golf seemingly has all the money they could ever need when it comes to offering contracts to players.

The Saudi-backed golf league has already reportedly given Dustin Johnson $125 million, Phil Mickelson $200 million, Bryson DeChambeau $100 million, and are now rumored to be giving Cameron Smith $110 million. They’ve also spent plenty on other players and give a tremendous amount of guaranteed money for each event.

While money can clearly buy talent, one important thing it’s yet to buy is a television contract for LIV Golf.

According to Sports Business Journal, former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner attempted to change that.

Shortly after the LIV Bedminster event, Kushner put in a phone call to some of the top executives at Paramount, which is a television network owned by CBS.

The source told Sports Business Journal that Kushner has no official position with LIV Golf but made “One phone call. Totally informal. It lasted a very short amount of time to make an introduction.”

Thus far, LIV Golf has been streaming on both YouTube and Facebook but hasn’t appeared on traditional television as of yet.

Donald Trump owns two of the golf courses that LIV is utilizing in their 2022 season, so it isn’t entirely surprising that his family would attempt to help the controversial golf series.

Kushner also has a previous connection with the Saudi’s who’ve funded LIV Golf. He owns a private equity firm called Affinity Partners which received a $2 billion investment from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund; the same source that directly funds LIV Golf.

However, per Sports Business Journal’s source, Kushner “is not expected to make more outreach on behalf of LIV or play an ongoing role in future media discussions.”

The awesome fan gesture from Cam Smith that went unnoticed in Memphis

Published

on

Cameron Smith is the gift that keeps giving.

Outstanding winner of The Open Championship, the world No. 2 has been catching the headlines not only with his golf, but talk of him having signed for LIV and the subsequent reaction from the crowd at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, the first of three events to find the FedEx Cup champ.

In between that, the Australian star has found himself the subject of a two-shot penalty, notified just hours before his final round yesterday, and on Monday he had to withdraw from this week’s BMW Championship with what his agent calls a “hip discomfort,” something he has suffered with for “several months.”

Apart from winning the fourth and oldest major, the 28-year-old, also the winner of the Tournament of Champions and The Players Championship in this stellar year, has continued to face a barrage of questions from reporters keen to establish just where we are with all the news on his impending move.

Almost as if to deflect that story, Smith caught the headlines again when, after striking a Southwind patron during last night’s final round, he offered a most generous apology.

Present at the event, tweeter Tanner Dillard posted a photo of Smith chatting to the unharmed fan after he had unwittingly knocked his phone out of his hand.

As can be seen, Smith felt the need to go above and beyond the usual signed glove or golf ball, take the ‘victim’s’ number and offer to buy him a new phone.

The man at the center of it all, Blake Krassenstein confirmed to GolfWRX’s Matt Vincenzi that Smith had since contacted him and ordered him a brand new phone.

All class.

Cam Percy clarifies ‘they’re gone’ comment regarding Cam Smith and Marc Leishman

Published

on

Last week, a report from The Telegraph that claimed Cameron Smith was joining LIV Golf for a contract north of $100 million took the golf world by storm.

And at the FedEx St. Jude Championship, the world No. 2 didn’t deny the reports.

“I’m ready to cop some heat. I understand that’s what I said, but like I said I’m here to win the FedEx Cup playoffs that’s my No. 1 goal and whatever happens after that will come from me.”

Smith also said, “I have no comment to that,” he said. “I’m here to play the FedExCup Playoffs. That’s been my focus the last week and a half, that’s what I’m here to do – I’m here to win the FedExCup Playoffs.”

Many of the rumors regarding Smith began with an interview that fellow Australian Cameron Percy did with the radio station RSN where he said “Unfortunately, yeah, they’re gone,” speaking about both Smith and Marc Leishman.

After a week of constant rumors and reports, Percy stood behind his comments in an interview with Australian Golf Digest.

“Look, I was just conveying what was said in the locker room during the many rain delays we’ve had on tour the past few weeks,” Percy said.

With both the reports of Smith’s joining LIV, Percy’s comments, and Smith’s lack of denial, it seems quite probable the Champion Golfer of the Year will be taking his talents to LIV Golf when the PGA Tour season concludes. That said, only time will tell.
