‘You won’t be missed’ – Pro rips Kevin Na over PGA Tour resignation

Published

on

The ongoing feud between Kevin Na and Grayson Murray continues.

Back in January Murray replied to a tweet from Golf Channel’s Chantel McCabe. In the tweet, McCabe wrote: “Kevin Na walking in putts does not get old.” Murray replied to the tweet, commenting on Na’s slow play: “Kevin Na taking 3 minutes to putt them does get old.” Na retorted: “U missing the cut is getting old!”

Then, at the Mexico Open, the two were involved in a shouting match which almost came to blows according to Murray.

Last week, Kevin Na announced to his fans via Twitter that he would no longer be playing on the PGA Tour after joining the controversial LIV Golf Series.

Grayson Murray took the opportunity to take another shot at Na by saying “our rounds just got 20 min faster!”

During their dispute at the Mexico Open, Murray yelled at Na: ““I told him, if he goes and plays in the Saudi League, no one’s going to miss him on this Tour.”

Now, Na has given fans the opportunity to see if those remarks hold true.

        Let’s look at their tax returns at the end of the year, specifically, the income line. Murray is a nobody on the tour who will never win as many events as Na has.

    Honestly I didn’t even remember this douchebag Grayson existed. I won’t miss Na because I’m not a huge fan, and while I don’t agree with his decision it was HIS decision. But Grayson Murray? Win something, make a name for yourself. Don’t grab the spotlight by starting some bs with someone people actually recognize.

    This guy should quite being a turd and start drinking like a man. Winners can drink without using it as an excuse for your faults. Man up dude. Quite worrying about NA and start playing some better golf on the Big tour. Real dudes don’t use drinking as a crutch, get another therapist or come up with better excuses for playing bad golf. Weak minded homeboys don’t succeed. Poor you

  8. Bobs correct.

    Imagine a scenario that makes Grayson correct. And here we are. As stupid as he is. He’s correct. I admired Na. But anymore I just don’t know. It’s not about the taking of money. It’s blowing up the american tour for generations to come. He just helped shit where he’s been eating. And poisoned the well for the ones coming up.

    How is everyone missing the point? It’s not about Grayson or Kevin. It’s about players being bribed with Saudi STATE FUNDED blood money. It’s the EXACT SAME as if the Liv Tour was funded with money from the child porn or human trafficking industry. Saudi Gov’t says that if you wife commits adultery, she can be executed by public beheading. If you’re gay you WILL be executed if caught. This isn’t a place we want to support in any way. Rory gets it. Billy Horschel gets it, and Tiger gets it. (he was offered near a billion to sign on).

    Saying that joining is acceptable because they have families to support is ridiculous. GO GET A TRADITIONAL JOB and have some scruples.

      Ok now do China… hope you don’t support any Chinese backed businesses or companies that profit in China. Is it difficult living your life on such moral high ground!

      Are you boycotting the nba because they’re in bed w/ China?

    • John is wrong

      Jun 19, 2022 at 5:46 pm

      That’s the law there. It’s a different place with a different religion and different customs. You can’t expect them to follow our laws and cultural norms. You don’t have the right to commit adultry or to be a homosexual in SA. Just because it’s acceptable here doesn’t mean it should be accepted everywhere. That’s a very bigoted way to look at things on your part.

    Grayson

    Kevin is banking $30million per year for the foreseeable future. I’m sure he won’t miss you either. And make more cuts while you’re at it before making a doofus of yourself.

        Really. Kevin Na seems to be a good guy and a good golfer. He quit the PGA and that is his business. PS: I don’t like Greg Norman.

          Good guy? Taking your paycheck from the Saudis is the 100% equivalent of knowing your paycheck was funded from the child p*rnography industry…or human trafficking industry. The only thing good about the Liv Tour is it shines a light on which players have a moral compass.

Freak incident leads LPGA pro to finish round putting with her wedge

Published

on

Golf viewers have seen plenty of tantrums on the golf course.

Go back to the likes of John Daly and Jon Rahm for not exactly hiding their frustrations with a bad shot, whilst the list of players throwing or damaging clubs is manifold. Indeed, just five days ago, recordings showed Grayson Murray snapping a club over his knee after a wayward approach at the US Open in Brookline.

It’s a bit more unusual on the womens’ tours, although Brooke Henderson put up a show at the 2018 KPMG PGA Championship when throwing her club on to her bag and snapping it, rendering it impossible to play with.

LPGA player Emma Talley isn’t in that league and usually takes it out on her putter by rapping it against her left foot. On Thursday, however, she damaged her flat stick on the 6th green at Congressional, scene of this season’s KPMG event, some four years after Henderson’s misdemeanour.

The former US Women’s Amateur champion admitted it surprised her, as she hadn’t rapped the club with that much force:

“I hit my putter on my toe, but it wasn’t even that hard. That’s why I’m so upset because I wish I would have broken it out of madness, but it wasn’t even that hard. That’s what sucked.”

TV coverage showed viewers the 28-year-old putting with a wedge from that moment on whilst Todd Garry of the PGA of America explained:

“So, Emma, on the 6th green, missed a short putt and kind of hit her foot with her putter, and she loosened the clubhead. She could continue to use it throughout her round but she decided to use her wedge, so she must replace….she has to get that fixed before starting her round tomorrow, but she could have kept using her putter.”

Coverage then showed Talley in tears after missing a gettable putt on the 8th, her 17th of the day, and finished 6-over, some four shots off the cut line.

DP World Tour announces sanctions for LIV golfers…including heavy fines

Published

on

In a dramatic move by the DP World Tour, all players involved with the LIV Golf Series will be fined and banned from entering the Scottish Open in July.

With the highly-regarded tournament set to take place at the Renaissance Club for the fourth year in succession, many of the top players will have planned to use the event to prepare for The Open Championship, set to have its 150th running at St. Andrews, just a week later.

Whilst the R&A, the organisation with control of the final major, is allowing LIV players into the event, this seems to be a European version of the twists and turns in the United States, where LIV players were welcomed into the PGA Championship but shunned by the PGA Tour.

The DP World Tour will fine members that played at the opening LIV event at the Centurion Club to the tune of £100,000 and suspend all from both the Genesis Scottish Open and Barbasol Championship, held from July 7th-10th, and from the Barracuda Championship, taking place as an ‘opposite’ event to what should be a classic final major.

Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the DP World Tour, has not ruled out further action, his statement confirming that participation in further conflicting tournaments without the required release “may incur further sanctions.”

The Scottish Open is an event that has often enticed many of the live candidates for The Open, and can list both Phil Mickelson and Graeme McDowell as previous winners, the pair now banned from the event because of their participation in the inaugural LIV event.

The 2021 running saw Collin Morikawa finish down the field before coming on from the experience to win the Claret Jug, whilst joint runner-up Matt Fitzpatrick subsequently won the Andalucia Masters and, of course, the recent US Open at Brookline.

Whilst the amount of the fine is peanuts in comparison to the millions that has been offered to the likes of Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka, this will go down well with players with the same mindset as Morikawa, Max Homa and Rory McIlroy, all of whom talk of history and tradition.

Indeed, the last-named and recent Canadian Open winner has labelled some of the breakaway players as “duplicitous”, a reference to the talk of ‘loyalty’ to the PGA Tour and a quick backtrack to signing for the Saudi-backed series.

Pelley was clear in his statement made earlier today:

“Every action anyone takes in life comes with a consequence and it is no different in professional sport, especially if a person chooses to break the rules. That is what has occurred here with several of our members.”

“Many members I have spoken to in recent weeks expressed the viewpoint that those who have chosen this route have not only disrespected them and our Tour but also the meritocratic ecosystem of professional golf that has been the bedrock of our game for the past half a century and which will also be the foundation upon which we build the next 50 years.”

Pelley concludes, “Their actions are not fair to the majority of our membership and undermine the Tour, which is why we are taking the action we have announced today.”

Xander Schauffele reveals why he turned down ‘obnoxious’ LIV money

Published

on

Xander Schauffele has been one of stars on the PGA Tour who’s been rumored to be a target of the LIV Golf series.

According to his interview with The Zach Gelb Show on CBS Sports Radio, he’s been steadfast in turning down the proposals of the Saudi-backed golf league.

“Yeah I’m here,” he said. “I met with Jay, we had a player meeting today. I met with Jay myself yesterday and I see myself right now trying to find a way to keep guys on the Tour versus being one to bail.”

“I’m very happy with what’s going on the Tour for the most part and I feel like there’s enough here. I know we’re competing against a big pot of money that’s sort of never ending, you can strike out a million times but there’s still gonna be on that plate swinging so it’s a hard competitor to go up against but I feel like there’s enough on this Tour and enough talent to make it the best in the world and keep it the best.”

“I’m not the first one to sit here and lie to somebody, the numbers being thrown around are very obnoxious. There are certain numbers that even fans of mine, if they looked at it and sit it they’d tell me I’m an idiot for not going, but right now, I’m 28-years-old, I want to win Major championships, I want to win PGA Tour events, and I really think we can make this product on the PGA Tour, it’s been the best and now there is competition, and we can keep it the best with the talent we have, we just kind of need to unify and keep it together.

“So to any one of my fans, words are words, and actions speak louder than words, and right now my actions are to stay on the tour and you’ll see me out here competing on the PGA Tour circuit.”

Of course, Brooks Koepka and others have said they were staying on the PGA Tour and ended up going to LIV anyway. Some users on Twitter pointed out Schauffele’s careful wording when answering the question.

@ToeTagginTambo pointed out that he used the words “right now” when describing his intentions to stay on the PGA Tour, but Xander has, at the very least, committed his immediate future to the PGA Tour.
