Collin Morikawa left ‘freaking out’ after clubs land on airport tarmac

Published

on

It seems as if there’s been an uptick of cases with professional golfers losing their luggage on airlines this summer.

Last month at the Genesis Scottish Open, Viktor Hovland’s clubs were lost by the airline. He didn’t have his clubs or clothes in preparation for the event until Ping made a custom set for him on site at The Renaissance Club.

Last week, Irishman Shane Lowry’s clubs were lost on his way to the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina.

This week, there are once again issues with a golfer’s clubs. On his way to begin the 2022 FedEx Cup Playoffs, Collin Morikawa tweeted a picture of his TaylorMade clubs in an ominous position.

Luckily for the two-time major champion, the potential nightmare was solved, and someone got his clubs back to where they needed to be.

    I just know those dirty LIV guys are behind this.

    In LAX, one of the luggage guys left a bag of clubs, minus the travel bag it was transported in, in the concourse, at bag pickup, for us to “find”. That was fun.

      LAX is the worst. I waited for my bag at 10 pm for an hour to find out that the airline had it on board to a connecting flight to Indy. My uncle and his son didn’t get their luggage and golf bag when they got here and had to wait 3 days because their stuff was missing. Absolutely ridiculous.

        I sure the garbage you lost could be easily replaced at a local thrift shop. You weren’t breaking 90 anyway.

    Since I play the game for fun, I would also freak out if my clubs were on the tarmack unattended. I can’t imagine how I would feel if I was a Pro at the highest level of golf.

    Geezuz – I was thinking the same thing. You would think he would have gold plated, vacuum sealed number that has GPS tracking attached, etc. Crazy…

    Maybe should start thinking about investing in a hard cover case…??

      Tour pros never use hard cases for some bizarre reason. Airlines absolves liability if you use a soft case….?

‘It’s a slap in the face’ – Patrick Reed hits out at DP World Tour over treatment at latest events

Published

on

This week, Patrick Reed is playing in the Cazoo Open De France at Le Golf National. The course is where the 2018 Ryder Cup was held. The European Team won the trophy, and Reed was only able to muster one point in three matches.

This week however, Patrick Reed was the betting favorite entering play. Despite being somewhat of a regular on the DP World Tour, Reed feels as though the treatment he’s received this week has been “a slap in the face”.

Reed is by far the biggest name in the field, but wasn’t asked to play in the pro-am or conduct a pre-tournament press conference. Of course, this treatment is a result of the 33 year old’s decision to join LIV Golf.

According to The Telegraph, Reed told Journal du Golf: “It’s a slap in the face not to invite me to do a press conference here, or as happened in Wentworth, not to have me play the pro-am and all those things. At the end of the day, it’s just my golf that I have control over. I’m here to support the Tour, France and all the people who are here.”

“But I don’t see why we can’t move from the LIV to the European Tour like we usually move from the PGA Tour to the European Tour. A lot of players understand and support my choice and have nothing against me. I didn’t feel any animosity against me from them.”

While there have been some players who have publicly stated they have no issues with the players who’ve chosen to go to LIV, there have also been a number of players who have done the opposite.

LIV golfers are currently able to participate on the DP World Tour due to a temporary court order until it is resolved legally. A decision on their eligibility going forward is expected to be given in February.

Congress members blast ‘pimp’ Greg Norman in meeting at Capitol Hill

Published

on

On Wednesday, LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman met with members of congress to discuss LIV’s current dispute with the PGA TOUR.

It didn’t go very well.

According to multiple sources, Republican Tim Burchett of Tennessee walked out of the meeting due to an inability to understand Norman due to his accent as well as the “propaganda” he felt Norman was sharing.

Burchett later sent a tweet himself about the meeting with “The Shark”.

Burchett wasn’t the only member of congress to give Norman a hard time.. Chip Roy of Texas said to reporters of the meeting: “Don’t come in here and act like you’re doing some great thing, while you’re pimping a billion dollars of Saudi Arabian money,”

It’s unclear whether or not any of the lawmakers gave Norman the reception he was looking for, but he did later thank them for meeting with him via an Instagram post.

Golf Channel analyst roasts Patrick Reed during Presidents Cup coverage

Published

on

The Presidents Cup gets underway today, with the U.S expected to dominate an International side heavily depleted due to LIV Golf defections.

A mainstay in the U.S. side in both the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup, Patrick Reed is another who misses out, but it hasn’t stopped Rich Lerner of Golf Channel from taking a swipe at the divisive Texan during coverage this week.

While showing a highlight of Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed celebrating after a Ryder Cup match victory, Lerner weighed in cheekily saying:

“Once known as ‘Captain America’, Reed is now paid by the Saudis to play golf.”

One commenter piled on, tweeting that Lerner should be careful of a lawsuit, referring to Reed’s defamation suit against Brandel Chamblee and the Golf Channel.

Reed is currently in action this week at the Open De France at Le Golf National.
