Billy Horschel goes in hard again on ‘brainwashed’ LIV rebels

Published

on

Just a month after Billy Horschel’s critical comments of those who’ve joined LIV Golf, the former Florida Gator has more to say on the matter.

Speaking to Golf Channel prior to his start at this week’s FedEx St. Jude Championship, Horschel gave his thoughts on the LIV golfers who were attempting to play in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

“I’ve said to some of the guys personally, I think they’ve been brainwashed. The way they feel so adamant that they’re going to be back on the PGA Tour. I’ve had some of them tell me, ‘I’ll see you on Tour again.’ I said, ‘No you won’t.'”

Back in early July, Horschel ripped into the LIV Golf participants.

“There’s a lot of guys that are hypocrites, that aren’t telling the truth, that are lying about some things, that I, just, I can’t stand to sit here anymore and be diplomatic about it.”

Rory McIlroy was also critical of Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford, and Matt Jones for attempting to force their way into the FedEx Cup Playoffs despite their suspension.

“I think where the resentment comes from with members of this Tour is the fact that they (golfers participating in LIV Golf) want to try to get their way back in here with no consequences,”

“Anyone that’s read the PGA Tour handbook or abided by the rules and regulations, that would feel very unfair to them.”

The three LIV Golfers were denied a temporary restraining order in court on Tuesday, and therefore will remain ineligible to participate in the race for the FedEx Cup.

    Ned, you need a few lessons in punctuation and possibly diagraming a sentence.

    Back to remedial English??

    Minority opinion here apparently but I’m glad the LIV guys got rebuffed. I don’t care about the politics but it doesn’t seem right they feel they can play both tours with impunity. Take the money and go away.

    No one knows, including me, but since everyone has an opinion mine is that I don’t see LIV being around for long. I think with the arrogance of the Saudis and the arrogance of Norman, something will happen soon enough. I enjoy watching the PGA Tour tournaments, and the LPGA tournaments, and I’d hate to see LIV push out the Tour only to have LIV go away when the Saudis get tired of overpaying for low end talent.

    Billy needs to be more concerned about that drunk wife of his instead of being loaded with jealousy.

      Oh shes not just a drunk. Lets just say she enjoys the company of Billy’s contemporaries.

        Comment sections bring out the best in humanity, apparently. Classy comments, guys. You were raised right, clearly.

      • C’mon Man!

        Aug 12, 2022 at 1:23 pm

        You guys are way out of bounds talking about this man’s wife like this! Honestly, it says more about you than anything. I bet you wouldn’t say that to their face. You can disagree with someone and still be civil.

          Completely agree. I wrote a similar comment but sometimes GolfWRX posts them and sometimes they don’t. Unfortunately we see a lack of class way too often in the comments sections. Frustrated keyboard warriors, I guess.

    Just what’s these guys problem? Maybe jealousy they weren’t offered a boat load of money. So far it’s nothing but good do you think Jay M would have come up with all that extra money without the LIV putting pressure on him. For me it’s a fun event breath of fresh air the PGA tour is getting stale.

    I’m surprised Billy could talk with Jay Monaghan ba**s filling up his mouth. His knees must be killing him lately. What a stooge. A fake tough guy too. You can spot them, they run their mouths when they know someone won’t physically shut it for them. Take that lisp and f*%k off back to cry baby town.

    Boo Hoo Billy.

PGA Tour reveals full list of winners from 2021-22 season’s Player Impact Program

Published

on

The results of the 2021-2022 PGA TOUR season’s Player Impact Program have been revealed.

The total prize pool for the PIP has been increased from $40 million last season to $100 million and is now spread out between 20 players instead of 10. However, the PIP now offers more than just financial incentive. The top 20 players in this year’s PIP standings will be invited to the 12 “elevated events” on the 2023 calendar.

As revealed by the PGA Tour, the PIP winners and their bonuses are as follows:

  • 1. Tiger Woods $15,000,000
  • 2. Rory McIlroy $12,000,000
  • 3. Jordan Spieth $9,000,000
  • 4. Justin Thomas $7,500,000
  • 5. Jon Rahm $6,000,000
  • 6. Scottie Scheffler $5,500,000
  • 7. Xander Schauffele $5,000,000
  • 8. Matt Fitzpatrick $5,000,000
  • 9. Will Zalatoris $5,000,000
  • 10. Tony Finau $5,000,000
  • 11. Collin Morikawa $3,000,000
  • 12. Shane Lowry $3,000,000
  • 13. Kevin Kisner $3,000,000
  • 14. Max Homa $3,000,000
  • 15. Billy Horschel $3,000,000
  • 16. Rickie Fowler $2,000,000
  • 17. Adam Scott $2,000,000
  • 18. Jason Day $2,000,000
  • 19. Patrick Cantlay $2,000,000
  • 20. Viktor Hovland $2,000,000

The fact that Tiger Woods won the PIP despite playing in just nine competitive events proves that his presence in the game of golf will always be what moves the needle as long as he’s involved with the PGA Tour.

Max Homa also sees Tiger winning the PIP on a regular basis going forward barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Collin Morikawa, who finished eleventh for the second consecutive year, took to Twitter to share his thoughts.

Changes to the famous 13th hole at Augusta National appear to be complete

Published

on

Azalea has changed.

The famous par-5 13th hole at The Masters, the scene of many an eagle and considered a gimme birdie for many of today’s big hitters, has been lengthened. And we don’t need to wait for the 2023 media release to find out how.

For the 2022 tournament, Augusta chiefs were hoping to reveal changes to the 11th and 15th holes, but were beaten to it by @EurekaEarthPlus who have now become the go-to for mid-season changes to the course.

Yesterday, the drone revealed for the first time how much work Augusta has carried out on the 13th, and it hopefully stops the drive onto a favouring sloped fairway and short iron into the green.

The tee box appears to have been taken back around 40-50 yards and offers more of a closed chute to the drive. This should create more thought to positional play off the tee, and a longer second shot – another effort to stop the first major of the year becoming a long-hitters paradise.

It was March last year when we saw the initial amendments to the course. It’s November this time.

Is it ever too early for Augusta news?

Iconic piece of Tiger Woods memorabilia goes up for auction

Published

on

Tiger’s coming back, and the golfing world can’t wait.

It may only be the 20-man Hero World Challenge, and then a couple of made for-tv events, but the sight of the 15-time major winner is enough.

The mere name puts a shiver down golf enthusiasts and when Tiger memorabilia is available, expect utter madness.

Earlier this year, GolfWRX reported on the auction of the 46-year-old’s Grand Slam clubs, sticks that eventually sold for over $5 million, and now the same auction house is offering one of the famous red shirts worn by Tiger at Augusta, this one from the final round of 2010.

According to Ryan Carey of auctioneers, Golden Age Auctions, the shirt has a little extra, being the only Masters Sunday shirt available:

“We believe this is the only Sunday red from a Masters Tournament that has been auctioned, and the others might not surface. The shirt is signed by Woods. Normally that would help the price a tiny bit, but I think it helps even more with this one. It has a massive inscription that says ‘2010 Masters Final Round,’ and Tiger doesn’t autograph stuff like that very often. It’s a huge autograph, too. This one is special that he did that.”

The shirt is also the first Sunday red donned by Woods following the infamous sex scandal in 2009 that saw Tiger take an extended break from the sport.

Strangely, Woods-connected items have not always been a big mover.

Various back-up Scotty Cameron putters have sold for between 80k to 100k, but signed scorecards from the US Open failed to make their $100 reserve.

Golf balls, though, now there’s a thing.

The ball sunk for victory at the 2005 Masters sold for over $30k, whilst standard signed Nike balls continue to surpass their first bid by some way.

Tiger may be a huge name in golf, but can he attract the sort of attention of the huge worldwide megastars.

Carey hopes so.

“Game-worn sports memorabilia, especially items photo-matched to a memorable moment or historic event, are setting records all around the world this year,” he explained. “A Michael Jordan jersey recently sold for $10.1 million at Sotheby’s, and a Diego Maradona soccer jersey recently sold for $9.3 million.”

The auction started yesterday with an opening bid expected of $5k, and with no way of knowing how the market will go, this could be the perfect time to ramp up the ‘he’s coming’ news.
