Justin Thomas roasts LIV Golf’s Talor Gooch over viral Ryder Cup comment



Many of the world’s best golfers are in Ireland Monday and Tuesday playing in the JP McManus Pro-Am. The event is being held at the 2027 Ryder Cup venue, Adare Manor.

The course made quite the first impression on Justin Thomas, who spoke about the beauty of the course on the opening day.

He also took a shot at Talor Gooch in the process.

“I’m just blown away by what today is and what this weekend and week has been,” Thomas said during Monday’s first round. “It’s going to be impeccable. The golf course is beautiful, it seems like it’s great for spectators.

“I mean, it feels pretty close to a Ryder Cup today.”

On Saturday, Gooch’s team for LIV Golf, the Four Aces, won the team portion of the LIV Portland event. During the celebration, Gooch claimed that the event felt like a Ryder Cup atmosphere.

“I haven’t played a Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup, but I can’t imagine there’s a whole hell of a lot of difference,” Gooch said. “This was as cool as it gets. We’ve been saying it all week. The energy is just different, it’s awesome.”

Even though Reed seemed to chuckle at the comment, he backed it up with some thoughts of his own.

“Just seeing how electric and how pumped up all the guys were getting,” Reed said, “it felt like I was playing a team event back in Ryder Cups, Presidents Cups and events like that where everyone is just all in.”

Thomas’ dig at the JP McManus Pro-Am wasn’t his only one on the subject. He also made an Instagram comment:

“I’ve seen some funny stuff online, but this is one of the better ones,” Thomas wrote on Instagram.

    If you actually watch the interview with Justin, it appeared he was completely serious. He didn’t say it with a wry grin or wink or chuckle or anything. Seemed more like he was talking up the venue and the crowd to me.

    Talk about living rent free in someone’s head. LIV has got it’s housing accommodations set in the PGA.

    I sincerely do not like what is going on with the tour/liv, however if we are going to criticize the liv players, then we must criticize the PGA tour sponsors who do business annually with Saudi’s… over $40 billion a year.

        No, I’m taking about the Justin that farts away tournaments. His last win he fell into. Try to keep up BJ.

    I think the PGA and the players need to acknowledge that all those payouts on the PGA tour are just petrodollars that are Saudi-backed and laundered through corporations. These silly comments are simply virtue signaling and reflect the hypocrites that these guys are.

    IMO I think Paddy said it best. Time for golfers to play golf and reporters quit trying to instigate negative comments. Damn go enough going on with 5.00 gas and food prices escalating. And before anyone says blood money I just purchased a brand new set of FJ rain pants. MADE IN CHINA.

Bryson’s current situation with Cobra revealed as he uses TaylorMade driver at Saudi International



At this week’s Saudi International, Bryson DeChambeau surprised golf fans by putting TaylorMade’s Stealth Plus 2 driver in the bag. Bryson has been a long time staffer at Cobra Golf and it was a shock to see the 28-year-old with a driver from a different OEM to begin his season.

Per Dan Rapaport of Barstool Sports, a Cobra rep has confirmed that Bryson is simply out of contract with the brand, but that the two parties are currently in discussion about this year and the future.

In our forums, our members have been discussing the changeup from DeChambeau, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • FifeRiviera: “Honestly Cobra woods are the single most underrated pieces of equipment on the market.”
  • Lacey Underall: “Just my guess – everyone on LIV will be an equipment free agent soon.”
  • KimmerBH: “Never been a fan of Bryson but I do miss seeing him play every week along with some others that went to LIV. He was definitely entertaining to watch, I’ll give him that.”

‘Sums up my life in the golf industry’ – Paige Spiranac on polarizing Phil Mickelson tweet



After a long break from Twitter, Phil Mickelson was extremely active on Twitter yesterday. His resurgence resulted in the golf world reacting for most of the day.

Paige Spiranac used one of Phil’s tweets to “sum up” what it was like to be a female in the golf industry.

The tweet seemed to be a joke, and to be clear the tweet Phil shared wasn’t directed towards Spiranac, yet some Lefty detractors weighed in calling the tweet “misogynistic.”

The full context of the tweet is here:

We can be sure that as long as Mickelson is this active on Twitter, the app will be buzzing with golf personalities and their reactions.

‘The hypocrisy is astounding’ – Phil Mickelson takes aim at RBC for missing logo at Saudi International



This morning, Cameron Young played the first round of this week’s Saudi International at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club.

As noticed by Twitter user “EPatGolf”, the 25-year-old PGA Tour player was missing the RBC logo that is typically on his sleeve.

Patterson speculated that the reason for the missing logo was RBC’s reluctance to be associated with golf being played in Saudi Arabia.

Never a stranger to controversy, Phil Mickelson weighed in on the topic, accusing RBC of hypocrisy.

Mickelson has been extremely active on Twitter lately and replied to a Danny Woodhead tweet just a short while ago about a potential LIV vs PGA Tour match with Tiger Woods and Phil as captains, even managing a little dig at his long-time foe.
