Controversial analyst reveals the hostile nickname allegedly given to Patrick Reed by his peers



Earlier this week, GolfWRX reported on a defamation case issued by Patrick Reed ‘against Golf Channel and analyst Brandel Chamblee, alleging that they “have conspired as joint tortfeasors for and with the PGA Tour, its executives and its Commissioner Jay Monahan, to engage in a pattern and practice of defaming Mr Reed. misreporting information with falsity and/or reckless disregard for the truth.”’

For students of the sport, the accusations read like much of what we have read or heard over the years, but Rick Reilly has gone to town.

On Saturday, the member of the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Hall of Fame tweeted an open message to the 2018 Masters Champion, sarcastically supporting Reed against the long-time anti-LIV commentator, while also alleging that he had an unpleasant nickname on Tour: “Table for one.”

It’s not nice to read, causing a mini-storm on Twitter, with some more critical of Reilly than Reed for the post.

Pointing out an amendment to the original tweet, one respondent asked, “Notice that you censored your own tweet to protect yourself… there is a huge difference between saying bending rules and calling somebody a cheater. Speaking in his or anybody’s family is awful and giving nasty nicknames is bullying. You’re not on the moral high ground here.”

Others pointed out the pettiness in all this: “What a waste of time, as if any court will lean any direction in a case because “nobody likes him”. Are we in grade school?” and, “It’s really crazy how passionate people are about someone’s else’s life. Mind your own f____g business and this works would be a much better place. I believe you’re an American right Rick? Enough said..nothing to brag about.”

Having been involved in golf reporting and betting for several years, 2022 has been unique in so many ways. Some aspects have become more nasty and vitriolic than ever before. And I’m not sure it has ended yet.

    Eldric cheated at the BMW, possibly elsewhere I am not aware of or where he wasn’t caught cheating. It is clear he did it here and attempted to get away with it. Wealthiest person in the room gets a pass, least likeable, Reed, vilified. Both are unrepentant.

      Believing that which we do not know, stops all possibility of ever knowing.
      Better to admit what one does not know. Opens the possibility of knowing.

    I am not defending PReed, who himself is nearly indefensible. But Rick plagiarized himself towards the end of his ESPN days. That’s cheating in my book.

    those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

    Rick Reilly is a liberal a-hole, whose is a joke of a journalist. He, of all people, needs to “put a sock in it.”

      Precisely…..Reilly is known for his political bias and self-absorbed attitude. Lots of A-holes win “awards”, he’s just one of them.

The hilarious reason why Kevin Kisner asked to sit the afternoon at the 2017 Presidents Cup



Golf is changing, as always.

While the best of the team events – the Ryder and Presidents Cup – give rookies the chance to shine, both events often rely on the experienced players to steady the ship through the early stages.

This week’s Presidents Cup is the 12th run-out of the U.S v International match-up, and the first since 2019.

The 2021 event was, of course, cancelled because of Covid and the teams look very different to how they may have looked a year ago, mainly because of the ineligibility of any players that have chosen the LIV path for their recent careers.

Played at Quail Hollow this season, the teams are a mix of the plainly obvious and those with zero experience, with 14 of the 24 players making their debuts in the event, including world number one Scottie Scheffler and Max Homa, winner of the 2019 Wells Fargo Championship.

It’s often best to turn to the older members for the stories, and 38-year-old Kevin Kisner has never been short of a tale or two.

With an enviable record at the World Matchplay – one win and two finals appearances in six starts – Kiz appears the type to thrive at all aspects of the team challenge. However, back on his 2017 Presidents Cup debut, he wanted to be left off the roster for day three.

His event started brightly for the rookie, when playing alongside Phil Mickelson, a Thursday half in the foursomes followed by a win in the following day’s fourballs.

Day three again started well for the pairing, beating Jhonattan Vegas and Emiliano Grillo 2&1 and taking their record to 2-1-0, before that strange request.

Golf writer Brentley Romine posted a tweet on Thursday revealing that Kisner approached the then U.S captain Steve Stricker and asked for Saturday afternoon off, because:

“Because Georgia played Tennessee. Strick is like. ‘Seriously?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, man, that’s my squad.'”

This is not the first time that golf took a back-seat to a Bulldog game.

In the same year, while competing at the Tour Championship, Kisner took to social media to arrange a flight to a Georgia-Mississippi game, eventually finishing tied third at the lucrative season finale.

The mid-event break clearly does him good as he also profited at Liberty National, halving his Sunday singles game with Anirban Lahiri and keeping intact an undefeated record as his team thrashed the Internationals 19-11.

Kisner didn’t take part in the opening day of this year’s Presidents Cup and there is no knowing whether he will play when Davis Love requires him to. Better check the football schedule first.

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



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



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.
