19th Hole

DP World Tour pro makes a hole-in-one and then gets disqualified

Published

on

On Thursday at the Made in Himmerland event on the DP World Tour, 30-year-old Aaron Cockerill had a moment he’ll never forget before suffering a fate that he’d rather forget.

On the 16th hole at Himmerland, the Canadian hit a hole-in-one, making it back-to-back weeks that Cockerill recorded an Ace in professional tournament play.

The Ace took Cockerill from one-over par on the day to one-under before following up the spectacular hole-in-one with a quadruple-bogey 8 on the next.

To make matters worse, Cockerill then forgot to sign his scorecard following his round and was subsequently DQ’d from the event.

Taking to Twitter after the day’s play, Cockerill confirmed the hole-in-one, saying he didn’t ‘validate’ it on the next and blamed “some hole in one chatter in the recording area” for forgetting to sign his scorecard.

All is not lost, however, as last week’s Ace from Cockerill earned the 30-year-old the grand prize of 30,000 Swiss francs worth of life insurance courtesy of Vaudoise Insurances.

So he’s got that going for him, which is nice.

    Those fiat Swiss Francs printed from nothing are worth nothing. Hyperinflation and people never learn.

Cam Smith enjoys meme poking fun at Rory McIlroy at latest LIV event

Published

on

The LIV Golf Series continues this week in Chicago, where the Champion Golfer of the Year Cam Smith will make his second start.

The Australian’s move to LIV has been one of the biggest stories of 2022, with Smith reportedly signing a deal worth north of $100 million with the breakaway tour.

Ahead of this week’s event in Chicago, Smith was shown a meme by the DrunkByTheTurn team, with the Aussie seemingly entertained, laughing at its content alongside fellow pro Pat Perez.

As revealed by the DrunkByTheTurn Twitter account, the meme in question was poking fun at LIV’s biggest critic Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy has continuously criticized both the LIV Golf Series and its defectors, just this week saying that he believes no LIV player should be a part of the 2023 Ryder Cup.

Report: Major TV network the leading contender to strike deal for LIV Golf media rights

Published

on

The latest LIV Golf event gets underway in Chicago this week, with those looking to tune in once again having to fire up YouTube to watch the 48 professionals do battle.

LIV has yet to strike a media deal that would allow a network or streaming service to broadcast their events, and while rumors surrounding a deal with Apple were circulating, Barstool’s Dan Rapaport reported this week that they deemed LIV to be “too toxic.”

According to a report from Front Office Sports, Fox Sports is now the leading contender to acquire LIV’s U.S. media rights.

While not going into specifics on whether a deal was close to being struck with Fox, Will Staeger, LIV’s chief media officer, told FOS that they are currently in discussions with “virtually every major media company.”

“We want exposure. We want broad viewership. We want to be on a platform where viewers are accustomed to watching sports.” he added. “Golf needs it, actually. Quite honestly, listening to golf on TV gets rather boring. Because everybody says the same thing every time about everybody.”

Interestingly, Fox Sports fired Greg Norman from his announcing role back in 2016, just a year after being in the job, with the Aussie telling FOS last year that he felt that he got “rolled under the bus.”

Earlier this week, Norman revealed to Kap & J. Hood on ESPN 1000 that they were in discussion with four different networks, and it appears that Fox lead the race to land a deal that should be a game-changer for LIV.

Bryson DeChambeau thanks Tiger for creating LIV Golf

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau was one of the biggest names to jump ship in golf’s civil war, with the 29-year-old reportedly earning over $100 million to sign with LIV Golf.

The Golf Scientist will tee it up in Chicago this week for the latest LIV Golf Series event, and ahead of the 54-hole tournament, Bryson opened up on his decision to leave the PGA Tour.

“This is the biggest decision besides choosing my agent that I’ve ever made in my entire life, and I couldn’t be happier to be over here.

“I have no buyer’s remorse. I have ultimate respect for the PGA Tour and what they’ve done for my career, as I’ve said from day one, and they’ve allowed me this opportunity.”

Then, Bryson revealed that he must thank Tiger for creating the opportunity.

“I have to look back and thank Tiger for this opportunity because he’s the one that’s ultimately created this.”

Bryson didn’t go into specifics on the latter comment, however, it echoes the sentiment he shared two months ago when the Californian told media: “I have high regard for Tiger; look, this wouldn’t be existing if it weren’t for Tiger. So I have the utmost respect for what he did for the game of golf, what he did for the PGA Tour that allowed us to have this opportunity.’’

Back in July, DeChambeau also revealed that a once close relationship with Tiger had now gone cold since the PGA Tour/LIV Golf divide.

“We have been fairly close and unfortunately, we have not spoken, one day we will again, and I am always open for a conversation with anybody. I have no problem with it and I hope we can come see eye to eye on it.’’
