Phil Mickelson’s LIV heckler is revealed…and here’s what happened next

Published

on

Phil Mickelson’s LIV career hasn’t got off to the best of starts to say the least.

The 6-time major champ has yet to break par on the new breakaway tour, looking like a shadow of the man that thrilled fans with wildly entertaining play on his way to 57 professional wins.

Despite insisting that his best game isn’t far off, Lefty currently sits T40 in a 48-man field at Bedminster, following rounds of 75 and 73.

Mickelson’s week in New Jersey got off to an ominous start, with the 52-year-old having to back off his opening tee shot after a spectator shouted, “Do it for the Saudi Royal Family!”

So, who was behind the call that casted a dark cloud over Mickelson’s week in New Jersey? Jason Selvig, content creator, comedian and one half of The Good Liars.

The prominent prankster has made a habit out of gatecrashing events, and Selvig certainly achieved his goal on Friday, but how did LIV respond?

Probably not as you would have thought.

In a video posted to his social, Selvig shows how he initially lured Phil into giving him a nod of approval and a thumbs up before delivering the line that forced Mickelson into backing off.

Unsurprisingly, Selvig received a couple of angry responses from the crowd before security entered the fray, seemingly to turf Selvig out of there.

But the prankster’s comment only garnered a warning, with a security member telling him, “One more time, and we’ll escort you out, one more time.” With Selvig then apologizing to some upset crowd members.

As for anyone believing he may have paid full whack to mock a player, LIV’s tickets are not exactly flying off the shelves, with Selvig tweeting“($1 tickets on Stubhub) and the crowd was very SMALL with very LOW energy. SAD!”

If you were expecting the heckler to have been thrown out instantly, then you wouldn’t be alone, but Selvig’s reprieve allowed him to spread some posters at the event…

…maybe next time security won’t be so forgiving.

      Exactly man, it’s so obvious. I’m going to start looking elsewhere for my club news and reviews.

      AGREE and their Forum format reeks just like Yahoo with censorship where they just ignore and don’t publish your comment. Pure indoctro-procto tyrannists. IMHO, there’s no way we’ll be able to avoid a civil war in this country because the Libby-Left has this mentality, just like the Libby Left Cabal criminals on Capitol hill that they’re invincible and can do whatever they want without reprisal. NOT!!! Corrections ARE coming SOON…

      They are hoping that their loyalty to the PGA right now will turn into a more lucrative deal down the road.

      Why does he “deserve” to be heckled? Explain….

    Who’s this clown? Never heard of him. And his 15 seconds of fame are up. Phil has 200 million reasons to smile at this guy & then dismiss him as irrelevant.

    Time to leave Phil alone. He’s done, his body is not going to allow him to play much longer. Slap his wrist, let him play on the Champions Tour, then he can retire and live in peace with his family.

    He’s taken enough abuse at this point.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Phil goes missing if he doesn’t start performing. That heckler was on point and actually made sense compared to average heckler at tournaments that make them almost unwatchable.
    US fans at Ryder Cup are horrible

    A punch to the throat would have shut him up for a few.

      So, you believe physical violence and harm are appropriate responses to someone’s words? I just want to make sure I’m understanding your post.

      But, they don’t let you get close enough to Phil to punch him in the throat.

Imprisoned Masters champ to face second trial for ‘gender violence’

Published

on

As first reported by CBA24n, Angel Cabrera is set to stand trial once again this December.

The 2009 Masters Champion was charged with threatening, assaulting and harassing former partner Cecilia Torres Mana in July of 2021, and is currently serving two years in Argentina for his conviction.

Since that case has concluded, there have been more allegations against the 52-year-old. Torres Mana is claiming that Cabrera had violated his restraining order against her on “multiple occasions.”

Now, a second accuser, Micaela Teresa Escudero, is claiming that she faced “coercion”, “coercion and threat” and “minor injuries” from Cabrera as well.

The former golfer is serving his time at Carcel de Bouwer, which is an infamous prison known as ‘El Penal del Infierno’ or the ‘Prison of Hell’.

The trial is set to begin on December 1st.

Augusta National chairman personally instructed players not to play LIV events, lawsuit claims

Published

on

More interesting information continues to surface from the 105-page lawsuit filed by the “LIV 11” on Wednesday.

According to the court documents, Augusta National Golf Club allegedly attempted to persuade golfers to not join LIV Golf.

“Augusta National, the promoter of The Masters, has taken multiple actions to indicate its alignment with the PGA Tour, thus seeding doubt among top professional golfers whether they would be banned from future Masters Tournaments,” the document states.

“As an initial matter, the links between the PGA Tour and Augusta National run deep. The actions by Augusta National indicate that the PGA Tour has used these channels to pressure Augusta National to do its bidding. For example, in February, 2022 Augusta National representatives threatened to disinvite players from The Masters if they joined LIV Golf.”

Greg Norman has consistently claimed that he’s attempted to reach out to Jay Monahan and ANGC Chairman Fred Ridley, but to no avail.

The lawsuit claims that the major championships has been a strong deterrent preventing players from joining LIV Golf.

“The threat of exlcusion from the Masters (and other majors) is a powerful weapon in the Tour’s arsenal to deter players from joining LIV Golf”.

While none of the majors have yet banned LIV players from playing in their events, they’ve spoken out in opposition to the breakaway golf league.

Adam Hadwin made the wrong comment over his wife’s outfit…and he’s now paying the price

Published

on

World ranked number 84, Adam Hadwin, is well known in golf circles for having a lighter approach to the game.

The Canadian has a Twitter bio that reads, “living the dream a day at a time!” and often posts about his family life and honest views on his current game.

However, despite having 30,000 fewer followers on the social media site, his wife Jessica is the one making more noise with some of her posts over the last few months.

We’ve had a clip of daughter Maddox’s reaction to her father’s hole-in-one at the Memorial, and the hilarious tweet regarding flat packed furniture, just two days after his best-ever finish in a major — tied-seventh at the U.S. Open.

However, she may well have trumped the lot with the revelation of her husband’s reaction to her new outfit:

Jessica is also unimpressed with the reaction of Team Adam, tweeting, “The best part (or worst?) was he said it in front of two male employees who proceeded to absolutely trip over themselves trying to run to his defense. Telling me “oh I don’t think he meant it like that…see what he meant was…he just wants to make sure you’re comfortable.”

It wasn’t long ago that fellow PGA Tour player Adam Schenk found that roasting your wife in public does not pay dividends, and you may think lessons were learned from that. It appears not.

Hadwin’s current status:

Good luck, Ad.
