PGA Tour pro rips Sergio Garcia over trip to Texas college game following Wentworth WD

Published

on

Having made it abundantly clear that he was ready to fight for the chance to play DP World Tour events, Sergio Garcia withdrew from the tour’s flagship event at Wentworth without giving a reason.

After shooting an opening-round 76 on Thursday, Garcia wasn’t sticking around for the remainder of the event, and when the tournament restarted on Saturday, the Spaniard had already made his way to Texas.

On Saturday, Garcia and his wife were spotted alongside Longhorns alum Scottie Scheffler and his wife at the Texas-Alabama football game.

Unsurprisingly, the 42-year-old’s decision to withdraw after one round without citing a reason only to be then spotted relaxing at a college football game didn’t sit well with everyone. Sky Sports Journalist James Weir tweeted:

“Jon Rahm told me on Tuesday it was particularly personal for him that certain players were in the field this week as his good friend Alfredo García-Heredia was first reserve. Had Sergio García withdrawn before his opening round rather than after it, AGH would have played.”

While responding to a tweet from No Laying Up, who were summarizing the performance of LIV pros at Wentworth, Byeong Hun An did not hold back with his thoughts on the withdrawal from Sergio.

      Wahhh Bob the crybaby. Sergio is a douche, no doubt about that. But his wife is smoking and way better than any of the creatures you’ve probably ever had a talk to. You spend so much time in these comments on things you say you don’t like or care for that I’m completely convinced you actually love every last thing about LIV. What else would you complain and continue with your internet tough-guy act about if LIV didn’t exist?

    The stories coming out of the PGA regarding LIV or other golfers is looking more akin to the Kardashians than sport. These stories are a huge turnoff and it may be time to exit another social media platform. Boring stuff guys.

      Agree. The PGA protests like the illegal monopoly they are.
      They’ve been such di-cks, they moved me into cheering LIV at every turn.

    Americans need no excuse to hit out at a successful former adversary. Am I wrong, has Sergio garnered more Ryder Cup points off Uncle Sam than any other player alive or dead? Yes, he’s petulant; yes, he’s perennially a child; and yes, he’s really only interested in money. So, for that matter, are most of the world top 100. They’re all money-grabbing hypocrites, whichever side of the fence they’re on. Look forward to LIV getting a proper lawyer on board rather than the clown who batted for them in California. And, by the way, where did all that new money on the PGA Tour come from? Copyright, Phil Mickelson. As for the media coverage, you (PGA Tour) pay for all those meals, drinks, hotel rooms, air tickets, transfers, wi-fi installations, etc, so you’ve got to expect something in return. Well played chaps, Fourth Estate at its most venal.

    When did the PGA turn into the crybaby league?

    • Southie Chris

      Sep 12, 2022 at 12:27 pm

      It’s recently been the silver spoon, drink tea with your pinky up, and wear 50k watches loser league.. Can’t think of a single current player in the PGA that went thru school of hard knocks. They all went to the best schools, and had the best coaching, etc…. Is what it is, but these tards talking need to zip the yap.

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.
