Kevin Na angrily confronts Grayson Murray on driving range; Pair almost come to blows

Published

on

Back in January, Grayson Murray took a shot at fellow PGA Tour player Kevin Na’s slow play via Twitter.

Na went back at Murray a few hours later.

After that, things seemed to settle down.

Until now.

This week at the Mexico Open at Vidanta, the two supposedly went at it once again.

On the latest episode of “The Stripe Show” podcast, Murray revealed that he and Na had another altercation on the driving range where Murray is making his fourth start on the PGA Tour this season. The spat featured “a lot of profanity,” says Murray.

“I was hitting balls on the range, and just kind of had my head down walking to the chipping green,” Murray said. “Sure enough, I hear someone yelling and cussing at me.”

That person of course, was Kevin Na.

“I won’t repeat every word he said, but basically there was a lot of profanity involved, and calling me a not-so-nice word about how I should have said it to his face in person. He didn’t like that I didn’t tag him on the post, which I’m pretty sure I did. I’m pretty sure Chantel [McCabe] had already tagged him, so if I respond he’s already tagged in the post, so I think it works. I’m not afraid to go at him, I’ll tag him.”

“I guarantee every one of them could hear what he said, and the caddies,” Murray said. “I went right up to his face and held my ground, and I told him, if I wasn’t going to get suspended right now I’d drop his a** right there on the range. Because what he said was very immature and I know he wouldn’t have said it to me if we were just seeing each other outside of the golf course.

“It was a very immature thing to say four months later, and to do it on the range, which he knows is his safe spot, he knows that I’m not going to do anything to him, he’s just provoking me.”

Murray then said “the old me” would have punched Na.

“It’s golf, I’m going to move on. And like they say, I’m living ‘rent-free’ in his head right now. I told him, if he goes and plays in the Saudi League, no one’s going to miss him on this tour.”

PGA Tour pro pleads for Tiger Woods to help change ‘terrible’ hole at Genesis Invitational

Published

on

On Sunday night, after the conclusion of the Genesis Invitational, PGA Tour player Adam Schenk took to X to complain about Riviera Country Club’s difficult par 3 fourth hole.

Schenk isn’t alone in thinking that the fourth hole at Riv is too demanding, but there are also plenty of players and fans who love the hole.

Ben Hogan called the hole “The greatest par-3 hole in America.”

Smylie Kaufman also said that he believes the hole is more about luck than skill.

Ultimately, there is a fine line between challenging and unfair, and the 4th at Riviera will continue to generate mixed opinions on which category it falls under.

Brandel Chamblee offers solution to Scottie Scheffler’s putting woes

Published

on

On Monday, Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee took to social media to discuss Scottie Scheffler’s putting stroke, referencing the banning of “anchoring” in the process.

“The USGA and R&A made anchoring illegal beginning in 2016 because the fulcrum established when one anchors simplifies the putting stroke such that one can merely let gravity return the putter to the ball. BUT one can legally simulate an anchored putting stroke by letting the putter head move substantially more than the handle and most of the best putters throughout history have done this.”

“So when I look at Scottie Scheffler continue to struggle with his putting (he was dead last in SG Putting amongst those that made the cut at Genesis) I wonder why he simply doesn’t try to get more flow and take the wooden look of dragging the handle out of his stroke. Compare the degree to which Scheffler drags the handle as opposed to some of the best putters of all time in the pictures below.”

Brandel then posted by side-by-side pictures comparing Scottie’s strokes to some of the game’s great putters of the past.

Chamblee then posted a video of why he believes Scheffler is more prone to having “heel strikes” in his putting stroke.

Scheffler finished 10th at the Genesis Invitational where he lost 4.4 strokes putting.

‘My chill here was zero’ – The comment from Genesis winner Hideki Matsuyama that left Amanda Balionis Renner stunned

Published

on

On Sunday at Riviera, Hideki Matsuyama shot one of the most impressive rounds in the history of the event (check out Matsuyama’s winning WITB here).

The Japanese star was six shots back of Patrick Cantlay to begin his final round with a handful of very good players ahead of him as well. Matsuyama went on to shoot 62 and won the event by an unthinkable three shots. During the round, Hideki made a few incredible shots including a dart on the par-4th 15th to less than a foot.

After the round, Matsuyama spoke to Golf on CBS’ Amanda Renner via a translator about the round. Inexplicably, the 2021 Masters Champion said he felt like he shot 3 over par on the day.

Renner seemed shocked by the comment and took to X later to share her thoughts.

“My chill here was… zero,” she said.

Hideki is truly one of a kind!
